IFight Shelby Marx - S2-E20

IWanna Stay with Spencer - S1-E5

Other mistake: The "Fan of Hammers" has all the hammers pointed the same way. But when the hammer goes into the wall, it goes in backwards. It is also there through all the rest of the shows and even in season two, where in "iKiss" it has a black handle. (00:02:35)


IPromote Techfoots - S1-E18

Continuity mistake: Sam hires a personal chef, Sonia. When Carly, Sam and Freddie are sitting at the table and Spencer is talking to them, Sonia takes the blueberry muffins out of the oven and puts her oven mitts down. Next, Spencer starts walking away. Then Sonia is putting down her oven mitts again. There is no way she could pick up and put down her oven mitts that fast. (00:13:15)

IRue the Day - S1-E11

Other mistake: When the military barge into Nevel's house, Uncle Roger puts the camera down and you can see it not moving whatsoever, but in the shot from the POV of the unmoving camera the shot is moving.

Death Killer

ISaved Your Life - S3-E9

Revealing mistake: After Sam shoots Spencer with her blowgun, she lands on the ground after jumping from the ceiling. During this shot, you can easily see that it is a stunt double.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Season 1, episode 18 "IPromote Techfoots": When they have the first meeting with the techfoot people, Sam is eating a sandwich. Every time the shot goes back to her and Carly, the amount of the sandwich she has eaten changes. Sometimes there is a bite taken, and then the next time there isn't a bite taken out of it.


IFight Shelby Marx - S2-E20

Revealing mistake: Carly, Sam and Shelby all corner Nevel in the ring. If you look in the corner where Shelby shows up, she's not in that corner until the light flashes on her.

IQuit iCarly - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: Carly, Sam, Fleck and Dave are sitting at one table at the Groovy Smoothy sipping a new smoothy flavor with T-Bo standing next to them. Suddenly the smoothy gets too spicy so all four go to another table and gulp down other people's waters then sit back down. The waiter places two glasses in front of Dave and Fleck. The waiter starts to pass behind T-Bo with 2 more glasses of water, but the shot immediately cuts to Sam and Carly drinking water.


Show generally

Visible crew/equipment: In the iCarly TV movie "iGo to Japan," the gang is riding in Kioko and Yuki's car when the Japanese comedians start arguing. In the shot showing Freddie putting his camera away, you can see several reflections on the side of the car. They are hard to make out what they are, but these are obviously the reflections of the crew in the background. If you look out the window beside Carly and Sam in the same shot, you can see how fast they are going past Tokyo. If these reflections are reflections of things in the city, they would quickly move away as they speed past. However, they stay put.


IHave My Principals - S3-E5

Plot hole: Near the end, Sam locks Mr. Howard and Ms. Briggs in a closet. Sam and Gibby then put a heavy desk right against the door and leave them stuck inside. Then later the two teachers are seen frantically controlling the students. How did they escape? They were inside a closet with the door locked on the outside and with a heavy desk against it.

Suggested correction: It's clear that another teacher or teachers heard the announcement or heard them yelling and let them out... What we should be asking is why no other teachers helped them control to the students.

More trivia for iCarly

Show generally

Question: I need someone from across the pond to help settle an argument between me and my wife. In the episode "i Rock the Vote", Wade Collins repeatedly uses the term "hob knocker." My kids asked, "What's a 'hob knocker'?" I said that it was something they made up that sounds somewhat British, probably insulting, and possibly vulgar. My wife insists that she has heard it somewhere else. So, for the record, what, if anything, does "hob knocker" mean?

Answer: In direction translation it means 'Mischievous Spirit'. 'Hob' as in HobGoblin means clown or prankster, and 'Knocker' was an old age term for Poltergeists in mines. Miners would often complain of hearing knocking sounds down mines when there was no-one else down there, hence 'Knocker'. It's not a regular English expression though.
