The One Question About "iCarly" That's Been Bothering Me For 10 Years

It's not about spaghetti tacos.

Posted on

You remember iCarly, the brilliantly wacky Nickelodeon show about a group of teens who host a popular web series from their insane Seattle apartment.

Honestly this show was way ahead of its time with regards to trends in digital media.

You know Spencer. The wacky older brother.

Nickelodeon

He's an artist.

Nickelodeon

He is, generally, hilarious.

But there's one thing that always bothered me:

Nickelodeon

It's not that he can't keep a stable girlfriend.

Nickelodeon

It's not that he lives the artist's lifestyle.

Nickelodeon

Ding, ding, ding!

You hit the nail on the head, Gibby.

You hit the nail on the head, Gibby.

It's that he, an adult man, is always hanging out with a group young teens.

WHY DOESN'T HE HANG OUT WITH PEOPLE HIS OWN AGE??

Sometimes it's straight-up creepy.

He shouldn't be talking to them about panties.

Why is he always talking to them about underwear?

Nickelodeon

Why is he giving Freddie a noogie?

Nickelodeon

Why is Gibby his best friend?

Nickelodeon

Seriously, this relationship is not okay!

Because, though his exact age is unknown, he is believed to be between 26 and 31* years old.

According to the iCarly wiki.

It's not like there are no adults for Spencer to hang out with. He could hang out with Lewbert...

Nickelodeon

...or Freddie's mom...

Nickelodeon

...or T-Bo!

I bet he would be a great friend.

He supposedly has an adult friend named Socko, but we never see him!

Frankly, I don't believe he exists.

But no, Spencer would rather show his little sister creepy videos.

Who is the adult in this family?

I could go on, but honestly this whole situation is so suspect, I'm not sure if there's a satisfying explanation.
