Joseph "Joey" Gilligan Rooney is the deuteragonist on the Disney Channel, Original Series, Liv and Maddie. He is the younger brother of Liv and Maddie, and the older brother of Parker, making him the middle child of the family. He seems to be a bit adventurous, a trait he shares with Parker.

Joey is portrayed by Joey Bragg.

Personality

Image22

Joey is a nice, adventrous, and funny guy, even though he is selfish and naive at times and it seems that he is one of the clowns of the family who makes everyone laugh. Joey is a fan of the Space Werewolves graphic novel series, which he describes as being as the "child of Star Wars marrying the Lord of the Rings movies, and then being adopted by Marvel Comic's Avengers." He also shown to be very clumsy as shown in Flugelball-A-Rooney when he knocks down a cake he made by accident, in Champ-A-Rooney when he knocks the lockers in the girls locker room after he gets scared by Maddie, leaving them both trapped together in the girl's locker room, and mostly in Meatball-A-Rooney when he asks to Liv to sign some junk for him so he can make money and accidentally drops a bowling ball on Liv's foot, leaving her injured. Including his antics on being "helpful" to Liv, dropping soup on her lap and having a klever slip from Joey's hand. He usually tries to be helpful around the house, but ends up messing it up or making matters worse, he can be very unaware of his own actions even though no one seems to admit of his unhelpful actions, as seen in Coach-A-Rooney. It's shown that Joey doesn't take it well when either of his sisters get dumped, as in Continued-A-Rooney, he expressed some anger at Diggie for breaking up with Maddie, and in Scoop-A-Rooney, when he ripped Holden's head off his personal scoreboard when he found out Holden dumped Liv. He is not above using trickery to get what he wants, such as when he tricked Liv into doing a twin-switch for him by saying it's for Maddie. He was initially childish in earlier seasons, wearing cat themed clothes but in Season 4 he matures drastically, undergoing great changes by dressing more maturely.
