Why did Drake & Josh get canceled?
Drake & Josh was never canceled. The term "canceled" usually applies to a network ending a TV show due to poor ratings. That never happened with Drake & Josh. In fact, Drake & Josh got its highest ratings during its final season. And the last episode "Really Big Shrimp" was the most-watched episode of the entire series' run.
Drake & Josh ended because we all felt it was time to say goodbye. Both Drake Bell and Josh Peck had been with Nickelodeon for nearly 8 years (Danwarp first hired them for The Amanda Show). They were ready to move on and try new things. Also, the network already had plenty of episodes of Drake & Josh for reruns, and they were excited about the idea of me creating a new TV series for Miranda Cosgrove(iCarly).
Where can I buy an iCarly Penny-Tee shirt?
Sadly, Nickelodeon doesn't make them so they're not for sale anywhere. Those shirts you see on iCarly are specially made. The writers and I come up with the words (that go on the chest) and our costume department makes the shirts. I don't know why Nickelodeon doesn't make and sell them. Fans tell me all the time that they wish they could buy them.===Spaghetti Tacos Sweep The Nation!... REALLY?===
===[http://danwarp.blogspot.com/2010/10/spaghetti-tacos-sweep-nation-really.html Holy moly. I'm kinda shocked. In season one of iCarly, there was an episode that called for Spencer to be making dinner.
If you watch my shows a lot, you know I always try to make even the simplest things – like making dinner – more interesting, different, or weird (in a funny way, hopefully).
Okay, so Spencer was making dinner. Spencer, this wacky character who's a cool artist… which is why I felt that he couldn't make something "normal" like hamburgers or chicken. I felt that Spencer should make something creative, fun, and original.
Two of my favorite foods are spaghetti and tacos. Boom! I had Spencer make spagehtti tacos. That sounded fun, inventive, and I wanted to eat one myself. And I thought it would sound appealing to the iCarly audience.
Later, I wrote spaghetti tacos into a few more episodes of iCarly. I even did one episode where the main story was a spaghetti taco competition against a professional chef from TV.
In the past year, on occasion, I get tweets and emails from fans showing me pics of spaghetti tacos they made at home. I thought that was pretty cool – that something I came up with and showed on TV actually motivated some fans try it themselves.
But I still didn't think spaghetti tacos were much of a big deal – just a little inside thing between me and iCarly fans.
Well, a month ago, I was contacted by a very nice woman, Helene Stapinski, at the New York Times. She wanted to interview me because (she told me) spaghetti tacos have become wildly popular.
Wildy popular? Really?
I was a little surprised to hear that. But I was happy to chat with her about spaghetti tacos, how I came up with the idea, and how I'd featured them in iCarly.
Next thing I know, there's this HUGE ARTICLE in the ]New York Times about how spaghetti tacos are sweeping the nation. The article appeared this past Wednesday on the COVER of the Food & Wine section – of the freakin' NEW YORK TIMES. Crazy!
Since then, the spaghetti taco thing has been everywhere. I gotta say, I find the whole thing very cool, fun... and it just makes me smile. (For a healthy recipe for spaghetti tacos – from the amazing Hungry Girl – CLICK HERE!)===

Dictionary.com – the hot word http://hotword.dictionary.com/spaghetti-tacos/ –––––––––––––––––––––––– Victorious: LOCKED UP –––––––––––––––––––––––– Victorious: LOCKED UP – This is a special one-hour Victorious movie that we think you'll love. First, the plot is outrageous, and just really funny (I hope you agree!) And like Freak The Freak Out… Victorious: LOCKED UP features TWO major music performances: One is a new original song called All I Want Is Everything, an AMAZING song by Victoria Justice.
When I first heard the song (a demo) I said to myself "Okay, that's a huge hit." Later, after Victoria recorded the song, it was even more incredible. And there's another awesome song that will be performed in Victorious: LOCKED UP – it's a POP CLASSIC, but I'll keep it a surprise for a while.
–––––––––––––––––––––––– iLost My Mind –––––––––––––––––––––––– iLost My Mind – This is the very exciting and hilarious "sequel" to iOMG. If you've been wondering, "So what happens now that Sam suddenly kissed Freddie" then you do NOT want to miss iLost My Mind. And... iLost My Mind will guest star the nuclear-talented star of The Big Bang Theory, Jim Parsons!
Also, iLost My Mind will lead to three more new iCarly episodes that we think you should put in the "MUST SEE" category. Their current titles are iDate Sam and Freddie… iCan't Take It… and iLove You.
These are the first four episodes we filmed of the new iCarly season. During production, the writers and I often heard the staff and crew say, "These may be the best iCarly episodes we've ever done." Of course, you guys (the fans) will be the judge of that, but we all feel great about these episodes, because we think you're going to laugh hard, and really enjoy the storylines.
Oh, and if you're a "shipper" – don't go freakin' out on us! Whether you're a Seddie or a Creddie, trust us – you'll have plenty to be happy about in the future of iCarly :)
–––––––––––––––––––––––– iStill Psycho –––––––––––––––––––––––– iStill Psycho – One of the iCarly episodes I hear about (from fans) most is iPsycho. For whatever reason, it got a huge rating and, to this day, when I meet iCarly fans, they often mention iPsycho as one of their favorite episodes.
It's one of my faves, too. I loved working with Danielle Morrow (a.k.a. "Nora Dershlit") – and the fight between her and Gibby was epic, don't you think? Anyway, I was thinking about iPsycho a while ago, and I said to myself, "Hey, why not make a 'sequel' to it?" – which is exactly what we did. It's INSANE! In fact, one scene is so intese and crazy, it took us a WHOLE DAY just to film the one scene. I feel almost positive you guys are gonna LOVE iStill Psycho.
–––––––––––––––––––––––– iMeet The First Lady –––––––––––––––––––––––– iMeet The First Lady – You've probably heard about this one. Very recently, we had the honor and pleasure of hosting First Lady, Michelle Obama at Schneider's Bakery, where we filmed an UBER COOL episode featuring Mrs. Obama, as herself. It was an incredible week of filming for all of us at iCarly.
And not only did we get to work with Mrs. Obama, I also cast my good friend Taran Killam as a Secret Service agent. I first worked with Taran when he played "Spaulding" in Moody's Point (The Amanda Show), and now Taran is one of the best players on Saturday Night Live. It was great working with him again.
ALSO… guess WHO ELSE makes a little cameo appearance in iMeet The First Lady. Can you guess? Hint: It's the FIRST time it's ever happened on iCarly. ;)
–––––––––––––––––––-------––––– NEW VICTORIOUS SOUNDTRACK ––––––––––––––––––-------––––––
Finally... this summer, the NEW VICTORIOUS SOUNDTRACK comes out! I think you're going to be blown away by it. There will be a total of 13 songs, and not even one is "filler". The soundtrack will include all of the best Victorious songs by Victoria Justice... and Leon Thomas... the complete version of "Give It Up" by Liz Gillies & Ariana Grande... and even a full version of "Broken Glass" by Matt Bennett. I've been listening to the whole album for the past few weeks, and I think it's amazing. Hope you do, too! ––––––––––––––––––––––––
Okay, that's enough for now. Keep an eye out for all these episodes over the next weeks/months. I think you'll be really happy and laugh a lot when you see them.
Until then, here are some cool pics I'm posting for the first time. Hope ya like 'em!
