What's the origin of Oh No Gibbly Didn’t Like That?

The teen sitcom iCarly launched in 2007 on the channel Nickelodeon and saw 4 seasons, which were a huge success among teenagers, and is still held in high regard.

One of the iconic characters of the show was the two protagonists Carly and Sam’s classmate Gibby. He didn’t appear much throughout the series until season 4, when he became a breakout character and was given part in the main storyline.

The ever-growing iCarly fandom always had tendencies of creating memes with Gibby in the focus, so it is not a surprise that the Oh no, Gibby didn’t like that meme format only started to make appearances as late as 2019 on Reddit.
