Gibby! was a cancelled spin-off of the hit Nickelodeon sitcom TV series iCarly. The pilot was focused on Gibby, who gets in detention after bringing a Weasel to class. There, he meets 4 children that are getting bullied by a mean kid. Gibby helps them, and they start to hang out at "The Bixby Rec Center", and there, they also befriend Flip, a Bixby employee.[1]


After iCarly ended in 2012, Dan Schneider, the original creator, had the idea for two spin-offs, Sam & Cat, a series focus on Sam (from iCarly) and Cat (from Victorious) being babysitters in LA. The other one was Gibby!, a series focus on the silly character of the same name. Both series had their pilots shoot, but Nickelodeon only greenlighted Sam & Cat, so the Gibby! pilot never came out to the public.


In the following years, only a couple of images had surfaced online, like cast photos and the official logo. In 2019, DanWarp Shows shared a full script description, and three pages of the script.[2] But in 2020, a Twitter user named "LAAAARRRYYYYY PhD," made a Tweet claiming to own the script to the pilot episode​,[3] after winning it in a "Nickelodeon Trivia Contest," but he didn't want to share it for fear of copyright issues. So, user "CINE DOCS" started searching for the script, and after posting about it in the official iCarly subreddit, user "Baylwhore" contacted him and sold the script to him. This script matched with the pages posted by DanWarp Show, and with behind-the-scenes photos. Baylwhore told that got the script from a friend (Sklapre), that got it from a "Nickelodeon Trivia Contest." CINE DOCS has since shared the script with the public.

In 2022, Quinton Reviews posted screengrabs of the Gibby! pilot on his Twitter[4]. He claims that a subscriber, who had a mom working on the pilot, sent him those screengrabs. Quinton will share even more screengrabs on his upcoming video The Scandal of Sam & Cat.
