Carly Shay (Sister)

Spencer Shay is the main character on iCarly.


Spencer is shown to have an eccentric, random fun and weird demeanor, but despite that, he isn't fooled easily, as seen in iLook Alike iDate a Bad Boy, and iGet Pranky. He once said himself, "I may be an idiot, but I'm not stupid". He's immature in some episodes but had a strict and mature side in iLook Alike and iDate a Bad Boy, where he grounded Carly twice. He is often called abnormal, weird, sometimes gullible and easily distracted, because he has a short attention span. According to his old girlfriend, Veronica, he has a "creative, fun spirit." He is frequently seen building strange sculptures on the show and most of his works are displayed in the apartment. Spencer may be eccentric and weird, but he really is responsible. He has kept Carly's asthma inhaler even though she hasn't used it since she was seven (iWanna Stay with Spencer). In iLook Alike, Spencer would not let Carly attend the MMA fight, because he said he's seen those fights get really rough and that it's not a place for kids, which is very true. He also said Carly was grounded for two weeks because she snuck out to see the fight.

Relationships with Other Main Characters

Carly Shay

Carly and her brother usually have a very strong relationship and often have fun hanging out together. Carly acts as the voice of reason or as an emotional support when needed. She is so used to him letting her have a lot of freedom that she gets irritated when he doesn't give her what she wants, as shown in iLook Alike. Their brother/sister relationship is very important to the show in many different ways.

Kayla Lee

Spencer and Kayla has hanged out before on iGoodbye with Sam and Kayla was eating fried chicken sharing with Sam while talking to Spencer once on this story online Kayla was dating Spencer on the show not really Kayla is to young to be dating Spencer.

Sam Puckett

Spencer and Sam seem to be very good friends, and whenever Carly isn't available, Sam enjoys hanging out with him. Occasionally, they seem as close as siblings, possibly making the Shay family a replacement for Sam's own dysfunctional one. It is revealed in iGet Pranky that Sam has a "little crush" on him.

Freddie Benson

Spencer seems to be something like a big brother to Freddie. Freddie usually asks him for advice (especially about girls) and enjoys hanging out with him when he needs "guy time" away from girls. We can also see that Freddie and Spencer work together as a team.

Gibby Gibson

Gibby and Spencer seem to enjoy each other's company and get together often when the others are not around. Both are rather eccentric, often serving as the ones to do some of the crazier things on the web show. Gibby frequently tries to help Spencer out, offering his Grandfather's services in iGot a Hot Room, rubbing Spencer's sore back in iParty with Victorious.
