Gibby Gibson is the son of Charlotte Gibson and Mr. Gibson, and older brother of Guppy Gibson. He grew up in Seattle and attended Ridgeway Junior High School. He is friends with Carly Shay, Sam Puckett, Freddie Benson and Spencer Shay. He is slightly younger than the iCarly gang. He occasionally appears in segments on the iCarly web show.

Gibby was to have spinoff series named Gibby. It was never greenlit and was cancelled for unknown reasons.

As of the revival series, Gibby has yet to appear (although his return is unlikely). His whereabouts are currently unknown. He is, however, mentioned by his brother Guppy in the episode iObject, Lewbert!, and his photo is shown on a monitor. Carly and Spencer's cheerful reaction to seeing his photo also suggests that they miss him. Gibby also doesn't appear to attend the Ridgeway High School reunion as shown in the season 3 episode IReunited and It Felt OK.

Physical Appearance

Gibby has brown, spiky hair and has a somewhat chubby build. His fashion style varies.


Gibby is known to be rather eccentric. He was known for his peculiar habit of frequently taking off his shirt for no apparent reason. As Gibby got older, he grows out of this habit. Gibby also carries around a Gibby Head, an anthropomorphic model of his own head. He is often described by Sam as a "nerd" and is a recurring victim of her bullying. Although he is frequently pushed around, it's been shown that he can handle himself in a fight.


Carly Shay

(2007-2012 Former Friend, One date)

Cibby -4

Carly had known Gibby for at least four years. Gibby was a regular guest on Carly's webshow, and Carly often says nice things about him. In the episode iEnrage Gibby, Carly states that she thinks that he is sweet, cute, and fun. In iGet Pranky, Carly stands up for Gibby when Sam says pranking Gibby doesn't count, by saying "Gibby is a real person." Carly admits to Sam that she was thinking of asking Gibby to the girls' choice dance in iSpeed Date, unable to follow through to it. In iOMG, Carly and Gibby complete their project together, where Gibby tends to suffer testing it.

Once, Gibby accidentally chose Carly on the iWin a Date game show on the iCarly web show (set up so he could get a date with the girl he liked, Shannon), and they went on a "romantic" dinner at the Cheesecake Warehouse (along with Freddie, Shannon, Sam, and Reuben). Season 5 showed that Gibby liked Carly and wants to "hang out more as Sam and Freddie do." Gibby lost contact with Carly, Spencer and Freddie, over the years, as shown in the revival series. (See Cibby)

Sam Puckett


(2007-2014; Good Friend, Former crush)

Gibby and Sam first meet in the episode iDream of Dance, where Sam accused Gibby of booing a Scotsman. Gibby has shown some attraction to Sam, but Sam has shown very little feelings for Gibby. Gibby once stated that he asked Sam out to a dance and got his thumb broken in rejection. Sam later was forced by Carly to ask Gibby to dance, but Gibby rejected, only for Sam to find out he had another girlfriend, Tasha. Sam did seem upset that Gibby had turned her down for another girl. She once called Gibby a "loser" (which he agrees with), and she once said that she thought Gibby was a mermaid because he hates wearing shirts. He also once helped Sam out of bed when she jumped on it and landed on Freddie. She also forced him to massage her feet once, but she refused to massage his.

In iMake Sam Girlier it is revealed Gibby once had a crush on Sam Puckett and asked her to the dance. However, she broke his thumb. Despite having a girlfriend now, he does display some forms of attraction towards her, though he mainly shows fear. He doesn't like her dating Freddie Benson, mainly because, not picking on Freddie like she used to, she acts even more aggressive towards him. He tries to break them up but could be jealous. Sam seems confused, and maybe jealous, when she discovers Gibby turned her down for Tasha. They stayed in contact as revealed in Sam & Cat, but it is unknown if they stayed in friends after 2014, (See: Sibby)

Freddie Benson

Tumblr mbllnqHTmf1roqz5ao1 500

(2007-2012; Former Friend)

Both Freddie and Gibby have shown minimal interaction, though it has been stated that Gibby is in the AV club with Freddie. Freddie once made Gibby angry because Gibby thought Freddie and Tasha, Gibby's girlfriend, kissed each other when they fell by accident, and he trained for a fight he was going to have with Freddie. Soon, Freddie showed him a video of what happened, taped from the camera that was intended to record rotting peanut butter jelly, and he apologized to Freddie. They declared themselves "bros" afterward and have hung out together on several occasions since then. Later, in iGoodbye, Freddie goes with Gibby to get another scan of his head, as he lost his other one in iLost My Head in Vegas. When Gibby's head is stuck in the machine, Freddie appears to show concern for Gibby and continues to rage the man, who was scanning Gibby's head, to get him out. This shows Freddie is indeed a very close friend of Gibby.

Gibby lost contact with Carly, Spencer and Freddie, as shown in the revival series, although they still reminisce about him. In iReunited and It Felt OK, it's revealed that Freddie spent his senior year hanging out with Toby, Barry and Magic Malika, with no mention of Gibby. (See: Fibby)

Spencer Shay


(2007-2012; Former Friend)
Spencer Shay, Carly's older brother, interacts occasionally with Gibby. They are both excitable with a few things in common. They have had a couple of subplots together, one notable interaction between the two is the time he exercised with him, Spencer wanted to get on a football team. Also, when Spencer won a boat, Gibby became his "boat boy." When a baseball team called "The Pirates" took over the boat, they eventually had to drive the team away by shooting watermelons at them with a giant slingshot, soon succeeding. Gibby once stayed with Spencer at his apartment, along with his little brother Guppy Gibson, when he was too old to go to summer camp anymore. He lived with Spencer for part of the summer for a makes summer camp called "Camp Spencer". The only thing that they did was fix Spencer's kitchen counter. (Meanwhile, Carly was at Web icon with Sam and Freddie.) Another time in the series, Spencer has dated Gibby's mother, which didn't last because Spencer thought she looked too much like Gibby. At one point, Spencer gets a haircut from Gibby's partially blind grandfather. Gibby also helped Spencer with his scheme in iHire An Idiot. Gibby and Spencer did not stay in contact after around 2012, but Spencer did get excited when a photo of Gibby was shown in court, in the revival episode IObject, Lewbert! (See: Gencer)

Minor Relationships

Tasha (2009; Possible Girlfriend)



Tasha is Gibby's girlfriend, who loves and cares about him very much. Gibby and Tasha once broke up due to the misunderstanding involving Freddie but got back together soon afterward. Carly, Spencer, Sam, and Freddie think there's "gotta be something wrong with that chick!" for dating Gibby. In the episode iPity The Nevel, it is implied they have an open relationship that is not exclusive (See: Tibby).

Patrice (2011; Date) Patrice is Freddie's date in iPity The Nevel. He was dressed as a werewolf and steals Freddie's date because she claims she's now into the werewolf type.

Jenna Hamilton (2012; Date?) Although she was Spencer's girlfriend in iLove You, after she sent Spencer and Carly to bed, Jenna sat on the couch to watch the movie with Gibby. It is implied that evening became a romantic date between Jenna and Gibby and more may have happened, judging by the tone of "Gibbehh!"

Kirsten (2012, Date) Another one of Spencer's girlfriends usurped by Gibby, this time in iShock America, where he walked her home and they seemed to enjoy each other's company, but then Gibby tried to kiss spencer.
