The Nickelodeon sitcom iCarly (2007–2012) centers on Carly Shay, who creates her own web show with her best friends Sam and Freddie. The series stars Miranda Cosgrove as Carly, Jennette McCurdy as Sam, Nathan Kress as Freddie, Jerry Trainor as Spencer, and Noah Munck as Gibby. iCarly was created by Dan Schneider, who also serves as executive producer. Two television films, iGo to Japan and iParty with Victorious, were respectively released in 2008 and 2011, while a joint spin-off with Victorious, titled Sam & Cat and starring McCurdy and Ariana Grande as Cat Valentine, aired on Nickelodeon from 2013 to 2014.
In 2021, a revival of the series was released for Paramount+, with Cosgrove, Kress, and Trainor reprising their roles, and also starring Laci Mosley as Carly's best friend Harper and Jaidyn Triplett as Freddie's stepdaughter Millicent. The series was developed by Ali Schouten without Schneider's involvement, who also serves as executive producer alongside Cosgrove.

In "iPilot", Carly takes the blame for one of Sam's pranks and has to oversee people who want to be in the school's talent show as her punishment. When Carly, Sam, and Freddie's suggestions are completely ignored, they decide to make a web show named iCarly upon Freddie's suggestion, with the 'i' standing for 'Internet' and Carly's name since she will be the host of the show.
Carly gets good grades, going for straight A's in one episode. She is kind, easygoing, and naive at times, wanting to believe the best in people. She has her moments when she proves just how crazy she can be. Yet in many ways, she is more grown up than her adult brother.
She has occasionally wondered why she and Sam are friends as Sam tends to get her into trouble. Freddie has a crush on Carly, of which everyone is aware. However, she does not feel the same way (which she has told him many times). Despite this, in "iSaved Your Life", Carly wants Freddie to become more than friends because Freddie pushed her out of the way of a truck, getting hit himself instead. Although he was originally eager about their new relationship, Sam later advises him to break up with her, but he regrets it later. In "iSpace Out" and "iSam's Mom", it is revealed that Carly is claustrophobic. She is the daughter of Colonel Steven Shay. He is stationed on a Navy submarine; their mother has never been seen and was only spoken of once when it was stated that she was in the armed forces. Carly is a kind and easygoing person who would do anything for her friends, although "iDate a Bad Boy" shows that she can be shallow, as she had a dislike of Griffin's hobby of collecting Pee Wee Babies (a parody of Beanie Babies). Also, when pushed too far, like in "iHave My Principals", Carly has proven to be just as devious as Sam, which catches most people by surprise because of her nice demeanor and the little-known, but generally assumed, fact that she has never pulled a prank by herself until "iGet Pranky" (which she did with Spencer's help). Carly is not tough, and even when furious, she has rarely physically attacked anyone on-screen (exceptions include when she tried to tackle Freddie in an angry manner in "iThink They Kissed" and "iPromise Not to Tell"). However, on occasion, she will confront someone, even bullies and teachers, as shown in "iHave a Lovesick Teacher" and "iMake Sam Girlier". She was also part of a girl mob (Sam and Shelby Marx) that beat up Nevel in "iFight Shelby Marx" although Nevel was not scared of her. Carly shows singing ability in "iDo", when she sings "Shakespeare", and in "iPie", when she tries to get people at a funeral to sing "Amazing Grace". In at least one episode, it is shown that she wears a mask to keep her from snoring, implying that she has sleep apnea as well as asthma, despite not having an asthma attack since she was seven, as confirmed by Spencer in "iWanna Stay with Spencer". In "iMeet the First Lady", it is revealed her father's pet name for her is "Snug Bug." She moves with her father to Florence, Italy in the series finale.
Although not present as a character, Carly was mentioned in the spin-off series Sam & Cat.
In the 2021 revival, it is revealed that Carly hosted QVC whilst in Italy, and that she hosted college radio while studying Theater and Media Studies. By the events of the reboot, she is sharing an apartment in Seattle with her new friend Harper. After failed attempts to start an internet channel with romantic interests, she decides to restart her iCarly webshow, with Freddie and Spencer assisting her.
Samantha "Sam" Puckett (Jennette McCurdy) is Carly Shay's best friend and in later episodes the ex-girlfriend of Freddie Benson. She co-hosts the iCarly webshow with Carly, and also handles the sound effect remote control. Sam has an identical twin sister named Melanie. Their mother is Pam Puckett (Jane Lynch). Sam also stated she and her twin sister Melanie were born on a bus due to poor planning by their mother.
Sam is a tomboy and often uses aggression against people who upset her. Sam enjoys pranks, mooching off her friends, and hates working, but is still considered a nice girl in-universe. It is mentioned in the series that she has been arrested three times. In "iWon't Cancel the Show", Sam gets arrested a fourth time after a man cuts in front of her in a market and she shoved a hot chili dog down his pants, only to find out he was the Mexican ambassador and as a result, she is sentenced to juvie for seven days (this is the only episode where Sam does not appear at all). Sam is also portrayed as gluttonous, with a particular love for meat (i.e. fried chicken, ham, bacon, steak, ribs, and pork). One time, she went on a meat patch. She had at least 7 of them on her arm, but still she could not resist eating a meatball. There is a running gag in the show where Sam is prone to say bacon. It was revealed in "iGot a Hot Room" that Sam speaks fluent Italian and she said she can play a trombone (or at least took 3 years of lessons). Sam has many pictures of boy celebrities on her locker, including Drake Bell, Patrick Stump, Pete Wentz, Joe Trohman, and Andy Hurley from Fall Out Boy. Sam loves to dance, as shown in "iWas a Pageant Girl", when she did a dance with her former dance coach for the talent portion. Sam reveals that she has a small crush on Spencer and that was what was keeping her from beating him up after he performed numerous pranks on her and others. She has a "rabid" three-legged cat named "Frothy". In "iParty with Victorious", it is shown that Sam is a skilled rapper. She occasionally refers to herself as "Momma." In the episode "iWant to Date Freddie", it is stated by Carly that Sam never lies but in the same episode she promised not to tell on Valerie even though she did. Despite her laziness and unhealthy diet, Sam is physically fit and several episodes show her flipping over full grown men or carrying Freddie over her shoulder with ease. She lives with her mother, although she often stays with Carly at her apartment, as she is dissatisfied with her home life. In the episode "iParty with Victorious" and "iLost My Mind", Sam reveals that her father promised his family he would return, but still has not come back since. Sam admits she used to compete in beauty pageants (and came in second in 19 of them) but got suspended for seven years due to her being suspected of "pushing" a candidate, Leann Carter, down a flight of stairs. Sam pushes Carly into doing the pageant when she finds out that Leann is going for her 100th straight win. At the pageant, Sam finds out she can compete because it has been seven and a half years since the ban, and secures her first pageant victory.
Sam tends to insult any other girl who has a crush on Freddie. Despite having dated boys before, she shares her first kiss with Freddie. In "iSaved Your Life", she gets upset when she tells Spencer that Freddie got hit by a taco truck. In "iOMG", it is revealed that she is in love with Freddie, as she kisses him with passion. In "iLost My Mind", Sam checks herself into a mental hospital because she thinks she is insane for being in love with Freddie. When Carly, Sam, and Freddie have to tape a show of iCarly in the hospital, Carly wants to get the iCarly fans to see if Sam and Freddie should go out. After the iCarly fans say that Sam and Freddie should go out, Freddie records himself saying that no one has asked how he feels. Sam thinks this is his chance to get back at her and embarrass her. In the middle of yelling at him, Freddie walks over to her and kisses her. The two start dating, but in "iDate Sam and Freddie", they keep arguing, and a frustrated Carly, tired of being their mediator, tells them maybe they are not meant to be, leaving the episode a cliffhanger. In "iCan't Take it", Gibby and Freddie's mom try to break Sam and Freddie up, nearly succeeding when the couple get in an argument which causes Freddie to consider breaking up with her, but Carly convinces Freddie that Sam would never try to hurt him. Freddie and Sam make up and kiss. In "iLove You", Sam and Freddie try each other's hobbies. Freddie invites Sam to hang out with him at his club "Training Bros", but Sam gets Freddie kicked out by accident. So Sam invites Freddie to see her uncle Carmine and cousin Chaz in prison, but Freddie causes Carmine and Chaz to get sent away by the police. After that, Sam and Freddie overhear Carly talking to Spencer and his girlfriend Jenna about their relationship. Freddie and Sam feel as if Carly was talking about their relationship, and they decide to break-up with the possibility of reuniting later on if they ever become mature about a relationship. Freddie tells Sam that he loves her for the first time. Sam tells him she loves him too, and they kiss. When Freddie sees what time it is (10:30 p.m.), Sam suggests they break-up at midnight so they can have an excuse to kiss for the last time.
In the series finale, "iGoodbye", Sam and Carly take a break from their web show while Carly moves to Italy. Sam then became a lead character in the spin-off series Sam & Cat, in which she moves to Los Angeles and becomes friends with Cat Valentine (a character originally from Victorious) after rescuing her from a garbage truck.
By the time of the 2021 revival, Sam is mentioned to be travelling with a biker gang known as "the Obliterators".
Fredward "Freddie" Benson (Nathan Kress) is the technical producer for the web-show iCarly which stars his friends Carly Shay and Sam Puckett. He is often the scapegoat when it comes to Sam's bad ideas. It is revealed that he has had a crush on Carly since the 6th grade, but Carly generally regards him as one of her best friends. However, in "iSaved Your Life", Carly falls for him after he saves her from getting run over by a taco truck. Freddie breaks up with her and says that if Carly still loves him and would still want to be his girlfriend when "the whole hero thing dies down", he would "be very psyched about it." At the end of this episode, Freddie is shown in the elevator asking himself, "What did I do?".
Like Carly, Freddie is shown to get high grades in school, although his talents are on a more technological basis; thus, he is somewhat of a nerd. When explaining a certain technology that Carly and Sam do not know about, he tends to speak in terms that neither Carly nor Sam can comprehend, and thus, this is one of the sources of Sam's constant ridicule of Freddie. He is shown as being a very effective producer, though he is given little credit for iCarly's popularity. Sam eventually somewhat realizes his vital role to the webcast when a girl named Valerie makes him her technical producer instead, and iCarly is greatly hindered as a result. It is also known that Freddie is interested in studying multiple foreign languages, including French, Spanish, and Portuguese. From the second season on, he is frequently heard exclaiming phrases in Spanish.
Freddie's relationship with his mother, Marissa Benson, is a very strained one. She means well, but can be overprotective, although they love each other. In iGo to Japan, it is revealed that he has a GPS chip in his head that his mother had implanted in him in Venezuela due to her overprotective behavior. Her constant overbearing eventually drove Freddie to temporarily move out of their apartment, and he remained there until his mother begged him to come back. Freddie agreed as long as she unblocked his favorite channels and left him alone in public. Freddie's relationship with Sam in the first season shows a strong dislike for each other. They have become more civil to one another as the series progresses to the point of them only arguing when they are around other people. Freddie constantly finds himself on the wrong end of Sam's demeanor and his near-psychotic mother's over-protectiveness. Throughout the series, Sam insults him, causes physical harm to him, or pulls pranks on him without hesitation, and also insults any girl who is attracted to him. But they both care for each other. Freddie gradually gets used to this so much so that in "iKiss", he stated that "his life would feel too weird if she didn't make him miserable all the time" and kisses Sam after they mutually compromise to "get their first kiss over with". In "iReunite With Missy", Sam asks for Freddie's help and when Carly finds out she says to Freddie, "You care about Sam" which shows that despite her constant abuse, he sees her as a good friend. In "iOMG", Freddie has a new app that tells people what mood they are in. Freddie tests it on Sam, and it said she was in love. He assumes it is their new intern, Brad, and tells Carly. But at the end of the episode Sam kisses Freddie, revealing she was in love with him. When the kiss is over Sam says, "Sorry." Freddie then says, "It's cool," with mixed emotions of confusion and gladness on his face. The episode ends with Freddie unsure of his feelings for Sam. "iLost My Mind" features them finally together, continuing "iOMG", when Carly sees Freddie and Sam kissing. Freddie kisses her live on iCarly at the end of the episode showing that he does, in fact, reciprocate Sam's feelings. Then in "iDate Sam and Freddie", they kept arguing, while having Carly help them get along. They eventually made up afterwards. In "iCan't Take It", Gibby and Freddie's mom try to break Sam and Freddie up by revealing to Freddie that Sam sabotaged his application for NERD (New Electronics Research and Development) Camp, thus ruining his chances of getting in. Freddie is devastated, leading him to seriously consider a break up, but Carly, feeling guilty about helping Mrs. Benson and Gibby and not wishing for her best friends to be unhappy, convinces Freddie that Sam would never try to hurt him and that she loves him. Freddie changes his mind and the two make up. In "iLove You", Sam and Freddie try each other's hobbies, which ends in disaster. They mutually decide to break-up, but decided that if they ever become mature about a relationship, they will get back together, and kiss for the last time.
In "iGoodbye", Freddie first assumes that Sam wants to reunite with him as a couple when she calls him, but then turns his attention to making Carly happy by offering to take her to the Father-Daughter Dance with Gibby, although both of them are rejected by Carly's sobbing. After Colonel Shay appears and escorts her to and back from the event, he announces he has to leave, eventually leading Carly to decide upon moving to Florence, Italy with him. In the studio, Freddie packs up his equipment, and starts telling Carly about helping Gibby take care of his new pet weasel when Carly places her hand on his. The two of them end up sharing a final kiss before she leaves.
In February 2014, Freddie guest stars in the crossover spin-off Sam & Cat episode "#TheKillerTunaJump" when Sam's new roommate Cat Valentine calls him over to Los Angeles in an effort to make Sam jealous in retaliation for Sam spending more time with her best friend Jade West. Jade then suggests Sam date her friend Robbie Shapiro to make Cat and Freddie jealous. When Cat argues with Sam over this, Sam says that Freddie is the only man she has ever loved, though tells a shocked Freddie that she was exaggerating to make a point. While talking with Robbie about this, Freddie comes close to admitting that he still loves Sam. After Sam rescues Freddie after he falls into a pit full of killer tuna fish, she apologizes to him and suggests they have fun with each other once he is released from the hospital.
In the 2021 revival, it is revealed that in the nine years since the webshow last went live, Freddie has been involved in a failed tech start-up and had two failed marriages, and has moved back in with his mother along with his adopted stepdaughter Millicent.
Spencer Shay (Jerry Trainor) is Carly's immature, childish, hyperactive, older brother. When Carly's dad was called overseas, she went to live with Spencer, who turned their loft into both a workspace and gallery for his wacky sculptures. Spencer is off-beat and rarely acts his age, but acts responsibly and seriously when necessary. Though often spontaneous and unreliable, Spencer has been shown as being extremely protective of Carly, especially in episodes such as "iQuit iCarly", when he sees Carly about to fall off a window washer platform and sprints to her rescue, and "iLook Alike", when he would not approve her going to a mixed martial arts fight, and "iDate a Bad Boy", when he adamantly disapproved of Carly dating Griffin. In "iWanna Stay with Spencer", when Carly was being sent to live with her grandfather against her and Spencer's wishes, Spencer gives their grandfather Carly's asthma inhaler, despite her not having an asthma attack since she was seven. He tells their grandfather that he had kept all these years in case she needed it and demands he takes it with them, but after seeing how much Spencer really cares about Carly by keeping the inhaler all this time, their grandfather allows her to stay with him. In the alternate reality shown in "iChristmas," it is revealed that if Spencer was born "normal," Carly would have never met Sam and Freddie, Sam would be stuck in a juvenile detention center, Spencer would be engaged to Marissa Benson, and iCarly would not exist.
In addition to making sculptures, Spencer has been shown to be an incredibly talented artist; while trying to teach Carly to draw in "iMust Have Locker 239", he quickly draws a professional-looking rabbit without looking at the pad, much to Carly's amazement. However, when Spencer tries to get involved in something besides sculpting, it tends to spontaneously burst into flames as a running gag, despite the object usually not being flammable. He is often the focus of the subplot for each episode, in which he usually finds himself in a strange situation. An odd interest of his is dressing up like a woman, as seen in "iWant My Website Back" and in "iLost My Mind". He also enjoys drinking milk in the shower, as stated in the episode "iGot A Hot Room".
In several episodes, it is stated that Spencer went to law school (because of his father's wishes) for three days before dropping out. Spencer did not tell his father that, claiming that he is busy. His dad eventually finds out in "iGoodbye".
Spencer is sometimes attacked, pranked, and tormented by Chuck Chambers, a trouble-making boy who lives in the apartment building. The conflict started when Spencer was covering for the doorman Lewbert in "iHurt Lewbert". Chuck has been seen in several episodes as a worthy enemy, because of his "sweet" personality, and martial arts skills.
Spencer has also had numerous girlfriends throughout the series, including Veronica from a grocery store in "iMake Sam Girlier" and a very high class woman in "iWon't Cancel The Show".
It is revealed that Spencer pulled numerous pranks during his youth in "iGet Pranky". After helping Carly pull a prank, his love for it was reignited, and he soon began to set up constant pranks at the expense of almost everyone, especially Carly. At her wit's end, Carly calls some of his old school friends (all of whom that came were victims from one of his pranks) to talk him out of his refueled habit. When Carly leaves, however, they resort to beating up Spencer since they still have not forgiven him for it. Despite this, Spencer gets the message. In "iParty with Victorious", it is shown that Spencer has a book club with only ladies. To Carly, Sam, and Freddie's amazement they think that it is not the most manly thing in the world, Spencer also agrees. In "iLost my Mind", this book club reappears, exchanging fruit tart recipes, however he is later kicked out after setting a box of books on fire.
In the 2021 revival, it is revealed that Spencer became a millionaire after one of his sculptures was accidentally set on fire and inadvertently seen by the art audience as a political statement. He has since remodeled his apartment; but has kept the third floor intact, allowing Carly and Freddie to use it to restart their webshow.
Orenthal Cornelius "Gibby" Gibson (Noah Munck) is a friend and classmate of Carly, Sam, and Freddie and the show's breakout character. Due to his odd personality and chubby appearance, he is an outcast at school, although he does have a few friends. He used to be known for taking off his shirt in almost all episodes he appeared in. After season 4, he has not taken his shirt off and stated in "iStill Psycho" that he takes it off "less frequently now". He often appears on iCarly to assist Carly, Sam, and Freddie. Gibby started off as an occasional recurring character of the show, but was promoted to a main character by season 4. Gibby has a little brother named Guppy, played by Munck's younger brother. In "iMove Out", he has a pet bulldog named Grubbles. Gibby also has a pet cat which he apparently likes to film, mentioned by his girlfriend Tasha in "iEnrage Gibby". A running gag in many episodes usually has many characters yelling "Gibby!" to him, either when they are aggravated or annoyed by him. Since becoming a series regular, Gibby often announces his presence upon entering a room by saying his own name in a deepened voice: "Gibbeh!" It was revealed in the episode, "iStill Psycho", that his birth name is Orenthal Gibson.
Much like Freddie, he is often a victim of Sam's pranks, but she has shown to have more respect for him. In "iSpeed Date", his last name is revealed as Gibson on his house's postbox, which read "The Gibsons". The episode also reveals he has a girlfriend named Tasha. A very attractive girl, she only has a small part in the episode. This surprised Carly, Sam, and Freddie, because they feel that Tasha is somewhat out of Gibby's league. In "iEnrage Gibby", Tasha returns and has a larger role, showing much affection towards Gibby. In this episode, Gibby is shown to be ruthless and jealous, but in a comedic way. He is also shown to be a skilled kickboxer. Gibby is portrayed to be a very capable fighter, almost to the level of Sam, as shown in "iPsycho", where he succeeds in smashing down a barricaded door. In the episode "iCan't Take It", Gibby is shown to be a strong singer when he serenades Sam and Freddie after he has a change of heart about trying to break them up. He also reveals in "iMeet the First Lady" that he thought Spencer was Carly's father. He says this again in "iGoodbye".
His mother's name is Charlotte. His parents are divorced. He also has some emotional problems because he is the main target for most bullies (mostly Sam in the first three seasons).
He is a very good friend with Spencer. In "iKiss", he became Carly's replacement in Spencer's football training. In "iCarly Awards", Spencer gave him the awards and he gave them to Carly and Sam. In "iQuit iCarly", he became Spencer's "boat boy" and he helped him defeat the Pirates. In "iPsycho", Spencer finds out that Gibby is not allowed to go to the camp anymore, so he cheers him up by inviting him to "Camp Spencer". In "iGot a Hot Room", his grandpa gives Spencer a haircut. In "iOMG", Gibby felt bad about hurting Spencer in an experiment. In "iParty with Victorious", he revealed he is skilled in massage therapy by aiding Spencer, so Spencer refused to drive the rest of the gang to Los Angeles unless Gibby was allowed to accompany them. Gibby also hosts the show with Carly and Sam doing things with sets.
Gibby also proclaims in "iSaved Your Life" that he and his family do not have cable television. Gibby imagines his fantasy marriage to Cat Valentine as a rabbi-officiated culturally Jewish wedding ceremony, with Gibby's stand-in wearing a yarmulke and breaking the glass.
Harper Raines (Laci Mosley) is Carly's new best friend and roommate. She is an aspiring fashion stylist, and works as a barista at Skybucks Coffee Bar after her family lost their fortune. She quits her job in "iMLM" when it begins to interfere with her ambitions, and in "iCan Fix It Myself" secures a new job as a personal stylist for emerging popstar Double Dutch. In "iReturn to Webicon", while stranded on an abandoned outdoor retreat, Harper and Dutch inadvertently develop romantic feelings for each other. Though they try to keep things professional for the sake of their careers, they end up sharing a kiss.
Following Mosley's casting in March 2021, Mosley has been the target of racist attacks from fans who saw her as a "replacement" for Jennette McCurdy's Sam Puckett. Writer Franchesca Ramsey tweeted in response, "[Mosley]'s character Harper isn't replacing Sam [McCurdy's character from the original].
Marissa Benson (Mary Scheer) is Freddie's stereotypically overprotective, and sensitive safe-cautious mom, first appearing in "iWanna Stay with Spencer". She is very neurotic, worried about Freddie getting hurt or having relationships with girls and constantly treats her son, as well as Spencer, like a child. She wanted Carly to love Freddie in "iWill Date Freddie", but later came to resent her for changing Freddie's "boy chemistry". Marissa constantly embarrasses Freddie in public, often by making him follow all of her strange rules. She does not seem to care about other people's apologies as seen in the special "iSaved Your Life" where she blamed Carly for getting Freddie injured. In "iFence" she reveals she is from a long line of Olympic fencers and displays her swordsmanship skills in "iStill Psycho". She also has a fear of germs shown in "iToe Fat Cakes" and "iCan't Take It". In the revival series, after Freddie goes through his divorce from his second ex-wife Gwen, she takes him in along with his adopted stepdaughter Milicent, whom she bonds with over house-flipping TV shows. In "iLove Gwen", Gwen admits to being intimidated by Marissa's rules whenever Freddie brought her to the Benson apartment during their dates, but liking her anti-tick shampoo.
Lewbert Sline (Jeremy Rowley) is the rude and psychotic doorman of Carly's apartment. He has a large, noticeable wart on his left cheek. In "iFind Lewbert's Lost Love", he reveals that the wart developed from stress caused by his abusive ex-girlfriend, Marta. Her over-obsessiveness caused Lewbert to take her on a cruise and to jump overboard and swam to shore and make him change his last name, lose his good looks, his job as a supermodel, move to Seattle, and essentially lose his mind. He is later sent to jail for 30 days and 6 months (by smacking a police officer on the face and "admitting" that he was the one who was stealing TV remotes from the apartments) so he can escape Marta.
He is featured on the bit "Messin' with Lewbert" on iCarly, in which Carly, Sam and Freddie pull pranks on him, once going so far that they accidentally blew his wart off his face with an "exploding muffin basket", made to shoot confetti, but blew up as an explosive. Afterwards, he had a short-lived romance with Freddie's mother. However, this did not last because of his attitude after Freddie fell down the stairs while wearing "open-toed shoes", which was actually a ruse by Carly and Sam to end the relationship. Lewbert is loosely based on an enraged, psychotic customer Rowley played in a "Blockblister" segment on The Amanda Show. Lewbert appears throughout the first three seasons (he was not seen in "iEnrage Gibby" but his voice was heard, and is later mentioned in the Season 4 episode, "iHire an Idiot." He is not seen or mentioned in season 5 but he returns in the sixth-season premiere, "iApril Fools" and the series finale, "iGoodbye".
Terrence "T-Bo" Bo (BooG!e) is the manager at the Groovy Smoothie. He often hassles his customers to buy random foods (as well as smoothies), such as bagels, bell peppers, doughnuts and pickles. These foods are always skewered on a stick. T-Bo says he has a degree in "Smoothology". He is a close friend of Carly, Spencer, and the rest of the gang. After "iQ", he rents a room from Mrs. Benson. He first appears in the season-two episode "iWant my Website Back", and continues to appear throughout subsequent seasons. In iParty with Victorious, he is revealed to be stalking Kenan Thompson as "The Panda", swatting him with a tennis racket while wearing a panda suit.
Socko is a friend of Spencer who is mentioned in several episodes, though is never seen in person. He and Spencer were friends in high school. He is known most for making all of Spencer's brightly colored, light-up socks, first seen in "iWant More Viewers". All members of Socko's family mentioned have names that match their jobs or hobbies; such as Tyler, who makes ties; Otto, a used car salesman; Rob, a professional thief; Penny, who creates Penny-Tees; Isaac, an optometrist; Taylor, a tailor; Bernie, a professional welder; Boomer, who sells explosives; and Ryder, who is a motorcycle rider. Most of his family members have never been seen in the show in person except for Rob who stole back Carly and Spencer's couch and Bernie who burnt a pickle on iCarly.
In "iParty with Victorious" Spencer is seen at the doorway collecting keys from Socko, who is represented in the form of an arm that extends to hand Spencer the keys. Spencer then closes the door so no more of Socko can be seen.
Nevel Amadeus Papperman (Reed Alexander) is one of the most recurring villains in the iCarly series, running the popular review website Nevelocity.com and tending to have a "posh" personality which includes dressing formally all the time. First appearing in "iNevel", Nevel reveals to have a crush on Carly and initially offered to interview her in order to get close to her, but Carly resisted his romantic advances, eventually retaliating by angrily smearing tapenade on his face after he kissed her. He has since made it his goal to destroy the iCarly gang with complex plans that hide his involvement at first. Despite his intelligence, most of his plans fail with him suffering in some manner. It is revealed in the episode "iGive Away a Car" that his dream is to open his own haberdashery. While absent from season 3 except for archived footage from "iBloop", Nevel returns in the season 4 episode "iPity The Nevel" where he pleas the iCarly gang to restore his reputation after a video of him yelling at a little girl goes viral. They help him, but another video of Nevel losing his temper with a man in a wheelchair goes viral and ruins his image yet again.
Resurfacing in "iHalfoween", the iCarly gang not helping him with the backlash from the second viral video, Nevel exacts revenge by giving Carly and Sam candies that made their voices very deep, and later framed Freddie for it. However, after Freddie was punished, Carly states that she now acknowledges that Nevel's attack on them today was provoked, and after being nice to Nevel and making his two bodyguards disappear, he is finally punished himself. He also appears in the iCarly video game. He makes a guest appearance on Sam and Cat, having been placed in a psychiatric ward by his mom because he got Porcupox. He helps Sam and Cat find their friend Dice who got captured by iCarly's obsessive fan, Nora Dershlit. At the end of the episode, Nevel escapes the psychiatric ward and meets up with Gibby at a restaurant.
In the revival series episode "iRobot Wedding", Nevel sends invitations for Carly, Freddie and Spencer to attend his upcoming robot-themed wedding to Prunella Pitz. It is revealed that it is a ploy to trick Carly into marrying him, but Carly refuses and Prunella professes her love for him. Upon hearing this, Nevel realizes he feels the same way and marries her for real on the spot.
Chuck Chambers (Ryan Ochoa) first made an appearance in "iHurt Lewbert", when playing racquetball in the lobby, which Spencer got him grounded by his father for two days. Later in the episode, when Spencer is out of earshot, he uses the CB radio that Spencer is using to upset two truckers, and gives the truckers the location so that they can come and get Spencer. Since then, Chuck and Spencer became rivals and have clashed on several more occasions, each time ending with Spencer winning and Chuck getting in trouble with his father except in "iFind Lewbert's Lost Love". In "iReunite With Missy," he was grounded once again for trapping Spencer in the basement for two days and getting revenge. He also appears in "iTwins". He has a wide variety of what Spencer describes as "suspicious liquids" such as a substance he squirted Spencer with and a jelly-like goo which he put into Spencer's motorcycle helmet. He makes his on-screen final appearance in "iBeat the Heat", where he comes to the Shays' apartment with his dad and sister, Gia, who Spencer finds attractive. As revealed in "iBattle Chip", Chuck and some of his 8th grade thug buddies' latest prank on Spencer got him sent to military school and so he told his younger brother Chip to fill in as the secondary villain. His sibling appeared in "iBattle Chip".
Guppy Gibson (Ethan Munck) is Gibby's younger brother. He first appears in "iPsycho" when he visits Gibby, who is staying with Spencer and Carly. Guppy later frees the iCarly gang from a recording booth while Gibby distracts Nora (the girl who trapped the iCarly gang). Guppy is played by Noah Munck's real-life brother, Ethan. Like Gibby, Guppy likes taking his shirt off, but unlike Gibby, he rarely talks and is mostly shown speaking into Gibby's ears. In addition to "iPsycho", Guppy also appears in "iSell Penny Tees" when he was on the iCarly webcast, "iDo" when he was riding in his little flame car that is attached to Gibby's bike, and in "iStart A Fan War" in which he, Gibby, and their grandfather are driving to Webicon. His signature phrase (towards Gibby) is, "Happy birthday!"; when Carly, Sam, and Freddie are trapped in Nora's basement in "iPsycho", they make a code and send it to Gibby, in which "every fourth word" is a code phrase. He also appears to have psychological problems; in "iStart A Fan War" he says he "hears voices again". He reappears two seasons later in the episode "iBust a Thief".
Charlotte Gibson (Deena Dill) is Gibby and Guppy's mother. She dates Spencer in "iFix a Pop Star", but he breaks up with her because he thinks she looks too much like her son Gibby, which makes her become aware of his resemblance to Carly. She appears also in "iGo Nuclear" when Sam gives Gibby a wedgie and she needed to give him his new underwear, "iPsycho" when she takes Guppy to visit Gibby at Spencer and Carly's loft, and in "iEnrage Gibby" offering Gibby a snack while he is punching a punching bag.
Maeve (Lyric Lewis) is Harper's cousin who disappeared four years prior to the beginning of the revival series and had been presumed kidnapped. She resurfaces in the episode "iTake a Girl's Trip" to spend time with Harper. However, she meets Spencer and inadvertently upsets Harper by dating him and choosing to move into his apartment while she looks for a place of her own. In "iCan Fix It Myself", Maeve reveals to Spencer that she had faked her own kidnapping: she went into hiding on a cruise ship to escape the unwanted attention from her family's loss of fortune. The two struggle to find a way to tell Harper, and Maeve accidentally tells her believing Spencer had told her the truth. Harper is angered by her betrayal but eventually forgives her. In "iThrow A Flawless Dinner Party", Spencer and Maeve start disagreeing with each other multiple times. They later concur that their relationship has been progressing too quickly as Spencer does not have much experience in long-term relationships and Maeve has severe trust issues stemming from her disappearance and estrangement from her family, so they amicably decide to break up with the option of getting back together in the future.

She returned in season 3's episode "iHave My Principals" and makes a brief appearance in "iBelieve in Bigfoot". She plays the bagpipes, much to the hatred of the students, and feels that iCarly is bad for the young society. She has a bullhorn, and commonly uses it in the school hallways. Miss Briggs does not return to the series for seasons 4 and 5, but she returns in the season six premiere, "iApril Fools". As mentioned in "iTwins", she and Mr. Howard like to make out in the teacher's lounge in their spare time after school.
Mr. Howard (David St. James) is a mean math teacher and detention moderator with an extremely unpleasant personality. A vindictive, hateful, perpetually angry person that hates practically everything – laughter, children, and even his wife. Everyone at Ridgeway, including Carly and her friends as well as Principal Franklin, dislike him, and the feeling is mutual. In later episodes, however, he has shown some respect towards Carly, Freddie, and Gibby. As mentioned in "iTwins", he and Miss Briggs like to make out in the teacher's lounge in their spare time after school. He appears in "iParty with Victorious", in which he becomes impressed by Steven, Carly's boyfriend, for his high knowledge despite being homeschooled. He also caught Carly and Sam texting in his class. As punishment, he makes them read their text messages. He returns in the episode "iOpen a Restaurant" where he finds out about the secret restaurant Gibby had opened in the old school basement.

It is not until Howard leaves the basement that Franklin blind-sides his request and tells Gibby to keep it open.
Mr. Devlin (Adrian Neil) is a British history teacher at Ridgeway Middle School. He is known for being snotty and very strict to his students (according to Freddie), even in his former position as lunchroom monitor where he gave Spencer detention for playing with his fruit. He also despises 3-hole punched paper, as revealed to Carly in the episode "iPromise Not to Tell", when he gives her a "B" on a history paper instead of an "A" because it was written on 3-hole paper. He teaches very fast, and if ever asked to slow down, he says no and keeps talking. He also made an appearance in the episode "iKiss", when he tries to console Freddie on having never been kissed, but ends up embarrassing him in front of the entire school.
Miss Lauren Ackerman (Jessica Makinson) is an emotionally unstable, verbally abusive history teacher at Ridgeway. She appears in the episode "iHave A Lovesick Teacher", where she dates Spencer.

In addition to that episode, he was in "iLike Jake", "iDon't Want to Fight", "iGot Detention", "iMake Sam Girlier", and "iSaved Your Life".
Mr. Henning (Andrew Hill Newman) is a hippie science teacher at Ridgeway Middle School. Spencer once had him as a science teacher, but complained that Henning was like a freaky weirdo and smelled like rotting wood. Henning stresses the importance of being environmentally friendly, but does so in the wrong ways, and as a result, he tends to give the majority of his students poor grades because they were doing what is supposed to be correct, but not correct by his standards (e.g. in "iGo Nuclear", Freddie created a high-tech and expensive composting machine, but he received a "D minus" for polluting the air by importing worms from Portugal). He is later mentioned in "iBeat the Heat".
Superintendent Harold Gorman (Weston Blakesley) is a Superintendent at Ridgeway Middle School and Principal Franklin's boss, and appeared in "iHave My Principals". He has an abnormally low voice, which at first, stunned and impressed Sam. He also appears to have a strong hatred of fun, and fires Franklin simply for appearing on iCarly and playing one of their games, something he feels is below a principal. He rehires Franklin later in the episode.
Missy Robinson (Haley Ramm) was Carly's best friend, because both of their fathers were stationed at the same naval base at Seal Beach when they were 7, before Carly met Sam. In "iReunite with Missy", she returns and constantly tries to get rid of Sam so she can be Carly's best friend again. She gives Sam the address to a piñata factory while she and Carly went on a helicopter ride, and then gives Sam expired chocolates which makes her sick.

She was able to manipulate people; her actions were evident in attempting to use Sam as well for her webshow, and trying to get Carly to give up her show. At the end of the episode, on her webshow (called The Valerie Show), Valerie was supposed to show her recent trip from Idaho, but the television monitor fell on her head, and she said "I don't know what to do now." She was not seen after that, but was mentioned in "iKiss".

Sam did not like him at all and eventually grew tired of him, frustrated with his way of speaking. During their date, Sam shouted a nonsensical metaphor to mock him, saying that she was on a date with "an Australian Eskimo who's got ointment all over his bumbleberry". He then ran away while crying. He only appeared in "iWin a Date".
Officer Carl (Christopher Michael) is a police officer that appeared in "iWant More Viewers" and "iMove Out". He arrests Spencer in "iWant More Viewers" due to a bright billboard sign that he and Freddie made, which caused a series of automobile accidents. The sign also malfunctioned and spelled out "Pee on Carl", which Officer Carl thought was targeted at him. In "iMove Out," he refuses to arrest pet photographers for vandalizing the iCarly studio because they took pictures of his daughter's bunny for free.

It is shown in "iSam's Mom" that she is somewhat desperate since she asks a stranger if he would like to marry her.

Spencer discovers a loophole in the contract, which requires the iCarly gang to only say "positive" things about the Techfoots. The children then proceed to highlight all the shoe's defects on the show, in a sarcastic but positive matter. Realizing that he has been outsmarted, Horvath is forced to buy out the contract. If he refused, he would be countersued for tricking the children into advertising the faulty shoes.

Sasha Striker (Lorena York) is the world's best Pak-Rat (parody of Pac-Man) player who appeared in "iStage an Intervention". When Spencer becomes obsessed with Pak-Rat (not wanting to stop playing until he defeats her record), the iCarly gang track her down via their web-show. She is considered beautiful by the reporters who are covering Spencer's attempt to beat her score. After Spencer defeats her, they flirt briefly, and she is never seen in the series again.
Jackson Colt (Terrell Lee) is a top 10 MMA fighter and appears only in "iLook Alike". He has a son named Kevin Colt who introduced him to the iCarly gang. Although Jackson Colt is kindhearted, he is very sensitive when he does not get what he wants, and occasionally becomes unexpectedly violent. He is a fan of Carly's comedy on the show, especially '"Random Dancing".
Hazel (Sherry Weston) is an elderly woman that Gibby met while riding down the street on his bike in "iDo". Once he sees her, he asks her if she can help him retrieve a five-dollar bill that he spotted in a tree. She accepts the offer, but only after Gibby promises her they will go get coffee afterwards. She helps him get the bill by letting him get on her shoulders. After retrieving the bill, she falls down and Gibby drives off and forgets about her. She is last seen on the ground mumbling "Are we still going to get coffee?".
Cal (Jake Siegel) was Carly's assistant in "iGo Nuclear". He was helping her with a school science project for her teacher, Mr. Henning. Cal was actually a criminal because he built illegal nuclear projects using black market uranium. His criminal history is revealed at the end of the episode.
Mitch (Danny Woodburn) appears in "iChristmas." He is the guardian angel who granted Carly's wish for Spencer to become normal. When this affects her entire life, however, she soon regrets it and wants everything changed back. Having learned her lesson, Mitch returns Carly's life to normal. In the end, Carly sees a vision of Mitch earning his "wings" (in this case, a bucket of chicken wings).
Melanie Puckett (Jennette McCurdy) is Sam's identical twin sister who appears in "iTwins". According to Sam, she is a straight "A" student, follows all the rules, and goes to a fancy boarding school in Blandale, Vermont. Sam has a strong dislike of Melanie, who is the complete opposite of her. Melanie has a crush on Freddie, much to Sam's dismay. Freddie, however, does not believe Melanie is real and thinks that Sam is just pretending to be her, so he asks Melanie out on a date. Due to his beliefs no matter what anybody says, Sam and Carly eventually agree with Freddie, but Sam and Melanie are then seen in the loft elevator together after he leaves. She is mentioned again in "iThink They Kissed", when Freddie recalls their kiss, revealing that he might be accepting that she is real but is still unsure. In "iSam's Mom", during an argument, Pam asks Sam why she cannot be more like Melanie. She appears again in the Sam & Cat episode "#Twinfection", as part of a plan to help Sam trick her roommate Cat Valentine in a payback twin prank.
Fleck and Dave (Daven Wilson and Joey Luthman) are two teenage boys who cohost a web show, and appear in "iQuit iCarly." The two are good friends, but have very differing opinions, such as the personalities of Carly and Sam. Fleck believes that comedy is more important than safety, like Sam, and Dave is responsible and takes care of everything, like Carly. Their friendship is threatened when Fleck paints Dave's father's car purple for a bit in one of their shows featuring the iCarly gang. An argument breaks out which results in Fleck and Dave separating. Carly and Sam try to patch the problem, but Fleck and Dave both make Sam and Carly think about how the two treat one another. This results in the separation of Carly and Sam. When Spencer helps Sam save Carly's life, they all become friends again. In the end, the webshow hosts, along with Freddie, make a trailer for a fake movie called "The Blowing."
Cort and Ashley (Daniel Booko and Teresa Castillo) are two teenagers hired as interns in the episode "iHire An Idiot". Cort was hired by Carly and Sam without Freddie's approval. Ashley was another intern hired by Freddie without Carly or Sam's permission, and this leads to Carly and Sam trying to get him to fire Ashley. Freddie proclaims that Carly and Sam have to fire Cort first and then he will fire Ashley, but this does not happen until the end of the episode. At the end, it is revealed that Cort was kicked out of college because he was claimed to be dangerously stupid. It is also revealed that, unlike Cort, Ashley is actually intelligent and works at the Brilliance Bar at the local Pear Computers store (Freddie makes her act stupid to trick Carly and Sam into firing Cort). Cort is later mentioned in "iOMG". It is implied that Cort and Ashley dated after the end of "iHire an Idiot".
Steven Carson (Cameron Stewart) is Carly and Tori's ex-boyfriend on "iParty with Victorious." Carly searches Steven's name, and after she sees a picture of him with his arm around another girl (Tori Vega), Carly, Sam, Freddie, Gibby, and Spencer go to Kenan Thompson's party to find out if Steven is cheating. In disguise, Carly sees Steven give Tori a charm bracelet and says "It's one of a kind, just like you," then kisses her which is exactly what he did with Carly. After the iCarly gang take off their disguises, Carly explains the situation to Tori, and they agree to get revenge. When Steven walks into the closet where he and Tori are supposed to have their 100-day kiss, he is surprised to find Kenan Thompson who blows a loud horn in his ear. Meanwhile, Carly, and Tori are doing a live iCarly webcast and announce that Steven is a cheater.
Goopy Gilbert (Jeremy Dozier) is an extreme Seddie fan best known for shouting "SEDDIE!" He is first seen in "iStart a Fanwar" as a Seddier in the crowd. In "iLost My Mind", he is the second videochatter debating whether or not Sam and Freddie should be together. He loves spaghetti and his bedroom is decorated with pictures of Sam and Freddie.
Porkchop and Sledgehammer are two truck drivers who appear in "iHurt Lewbert". Spencer is seen talking to them on a CB Radio, while filling in for Lewbert. However, Spencer upsets and angers them repeatedly and they threaten to find him. When Spencer leaves the room momentarily, Chuck Chambers, seeking revenge on Spencer for getting him grounded, grabs the radio and gives them the location. However a few days later, Lewbert takes his job back and the truckers enter the building. Mistaking Lewbert for Spencer, the furious truckers beat him up.
