the only positive thing I will say about Dan Schneider is that it's cool he coded characters on his shows to be LGBT+ despite Nick not wanting The Gay™ to infect their shows at the time. Sam and, to a lesser extent, Spencer from iCarly are good examples of this, but it's incredibly evident in Victorious.
Nobody on that show is straight. NO. ONE.
Jade's the most obvious, what with the tattoo/her interest in Tori and Cat/her disinterest in boys. But there's also Robbie, who's implied to be trans, and Tori, who doesn't seem to realize that women have eyes. Jade and Tori were literally meant to kiss at the end of the play in "Tori and Jade's Playdate", but Nick canned the script.
There's also Sam & Cat, which is the gayest show Nickelodeon has ever aired. They're literally just a married couple. Honestly it's so overt I'm not even sure you can call it coded.

Sklee approached......... Zim? He was different from the Zim she was used to seeing, but he was definitely still Zim. Deciding to be cautious, she called out first. "Zim?"
