Gibby is soooo annoying at the end


They tried to make him super funny and the favorite but I can't stand him towards the end of the series

reply

Yes as soon as they put him in the lineup the show went downhill fast! Gibby only worked best in small doses

reply

What I hated was how the applause track would play everytime he appeared. They were treating him like he was the star. Is this iCarly or iGibby?

Gibby sucks. He's the Scrappy Doo of iCarly

I always felt that the only reason he was allowed to take off his shirt is because he's overweight. Had he been slim like Freddie, that wouldn't have happened.

No room for sexiness in a kids show. :-(

They also had fit, attractive people taking off their shirts such as:

- Griffin (iDate a Bad Boy)
- Cort (iHire an Idiot)

If anything I'd say the opposite is true. Gibby never takes his shirt off in the later seasons probably because the producers think it's okay for a little kid to be round and shirtless but if teenagers are going to be getting nakey they better be hot.

There's also the confusing double standard where Jennette & Miranda were shown in bathing suits in season 1 at like age 14 but bikini-clad Jennette is suddenly a huge scandal when she's like 20. So... Guys are allowed to be sexy but girls aren't?

It's a *beep* up world.

Not when girls are well-known by the under 13 market and are role models still to little girls. Why do you think girls grow up so fast these days, are oversexualized and forced to act "sexy" at like 11 or 12? Just saying.

reply

Not quite sure which side of the issue you're coming down on. Even if sexualization is the issue, how is it okay for them to be bikini-clad in the show when they're 14 but not when they're 19? Sorry if I've misunderstood you.

He did take his shirt off one last time in one of the final episodes.

I agree that Gibby was best in small doses. But after Gibby became the hero of iPsycho (and it WAS cool to see him win over Nora), I think the writers weren't sure what to do with his character. He was already starting to mature, and ripping off his shirt was a joke that was already played out. Maybe if they had made him a little less dense and weird and had him make fewer appearances in the main plot but at the same time letting us see that he had his own life and maybe some success dating other girls. He could have still made appearances on the webshow or meet the gang for smoothies.
