Tori Goes Platinum


The Blonde Squad

Crazy Ponnie is the 13th episode in Season 3 of Victorious. It aired on June 9, 2012. The episode premiered to 2.603 million viewers.


Trina has a head cold and has been keeping Tori awake with her endless sneezing, causing Tori to come to school looking tired and awful. After Trina sneezes on Tori in the hallway, Tori goes to the bathroom to wash her hands, when she hears someone crying in the nearby stall. Upon investigating, she discovers a girl sitting on the toilet, eating a sandwich and crying. This girl's name is Ponnie and is played by guest star Jennette McCurdy. Tori befriends Ponnie and invites her to eat with her friends. But as Tori shows up at the lunch table with Beck, Andre, Jade, Robbie, and Cat, Ponnie vanishes. Later, Tori bumps into Ponnie again and Ponnie explains that she chickened out due to her shyness and also explains to Tori they have Sikowitz's class together but Tori and her friends have never noticed her. Tori offers to walk to class with Ponnie together, but once Tori reaches the classroom, Ponnie vanishes again and Tori's friends begin to question Tori's sanity, as she insists there is a Ponnie, and Tori's friends and Sikowitz insist there's noone named Ponnie currently at Hollywood Arts. She shows them the contents of Ponnie's backpack(as Tori offered to carry it for Ponnie) to reveal inside: an ear of corn, a dictionary, and a doll made to look exactly like Tori. Tori runs out into the hallway to look for Ponnie, only to discover her locker has been vandalized, with it now saying "Make it Rot". Tori brings Sikowitz and her friends to her locker and to Tori's horror, the locker has returned to normal, once again saying Make it Shine. Later at Tori's house, Beck, Andre and Robbie try to calm Tori down, as she continues to persist there is a girl named Ponnie. The food the friends have ordered arrives at the door, and to Tori's horror, the delivery woman is Ponnie. She shows this to her friends, but the delivery woman claims her name is Linda, and Beck, Andre, and Robbie believe Tori is crazy. To prove Ponnie's existence, Tori goes outside onto the porch alone with the delivery woman, and the delivery woman reveals herself to be Ponnie after all. Ponnie kicks Tori in the shin and dumps the food onto her head. Tori rushes back inside to tell her friends, and Beck, Andre, and Robbie believe Tori has lost her mind. She kicks them out of the house. That night, Tori talks to her mother about the Ponnie incident and they set a trap with Tori's dad's partner in the police force.

The next day Tori wanders into the hallway alone, attempting to lure Ponnie out. She begins to buy a drink from the vending machine, only for a hand to grab Tori through the slot. Ponnie emerges from the vending machine and reveals to Tori her name is really Fawn Liebowitz. Fawn is angry because Hollywood Arts kicked her out to make room for Tori and Tori's locker used to be Fawn's locker. Tori calls for help and police rush out to arrest Fawn. Sikowitz rushes over and recognizes Fawn, explaining to Tori that they kicked Fawn out because she was crazy, not to make room for Tori. He explains that she kept strange things in her backpack, and called everyone Debbie for some reason. Fawn is led out of the school and Tori is relieved that it is all over.

But as Tori and Trina are driven home by one of the officers, the driving officer is revealed to be Ponnie in disguise as an officer, as an evil smile spreads across her face. 


Cat accidentally waxes Jade's eyebrows off, so Jade runs around trying to get back at Cat. Jade takes it so far as to actually attack an unknowing Cat in Sikowitz's class. When Cat falls asleep at study hall, Jade cuts off all of Cat's hair.

Second Subplot

Trina keeps on blowing her nose, into tissues that end up having a lot of snot. Afterwards, she starts to get a fever.


  • This is the mysterious Jenette McCurdy episode that was once thought to be Driving Tori Crazy.
  • Jennette McCurdy guest stars as Ponnie. She is the third iCarly cast member to guest star and the only one with speaking roles.
  • This episode was filmed the week of Martin Luther King Jr. Day (January 16th-20th, 2012).
  • Jennette stated before that her character is different and something new from what she usually does.
  • This is the second episode title to include the word Crazy in it, the first being Driving Tori Crazy.
  • Instead of Tori's locker saying "Make It Shine," it says "Make It Rot." The locker originally said "Make It Die" but due to the controversy over the topic of death, Dan may have decided not to put it in the episode.
  • The episode was promoted as a part of Just Jennette Night marathon on Nickelodeon, which also featured a new episode of iCarly and a new one-hour episode of Bucket and Skinner.
  • This is also the sixth episode to air immediately following a new iCarly, after Robarazzi, Helen Back Again, Who Did It to Trina?, Tori Tortures Teacher, and April Fools Blank.
  • This episode aired the same night the Victorious cast performed at Universal Citywalk in Orlando, Florida.
  • Ponnie may resemble Nora Dershlitt, an antagonist from iCarly.
  • The Talking Tori doll is a parody of the Talking Tina doll from the "Talking Tina" episode of The Twilight Zone.
  • Ponnie's real name is Fawn Libawitz.
  • Jade does not have eyebrows in this whole episode.
  • This episode marks the second appearance of the Hollywood Arts girls bathroom, after April Fools Blank.
  • This is the fifth time Jennette and Victoria have worked together. Once on Zoey 101, twice on iCarly: the episodes iParty with Victorious and iFight Shelby Marx, once on The Penguins of Madagascar, and now.
  • This is the fourth time Daniella and Jennette have worked together. Twice on iCarly: iPyscho and iParty with Victorious, once on FRED: The Movie and now.
  • This is the third time Leon and Jennette work together. Twice on iCarly: iCarly Saves Tv and iParty with Victorious, and now.
  • This is the second time the cast of Victorious works with Jennette. Once on iCarly: iParty with Victorious, and now.
  • This is the ninth show/movie Jennette has appeared on Nickelodoen. Zoey 101, The Last Day of Summer, iCarly, True Jackson VP, FRED: The Movie, Best Player, BrainSurge, and The Penguins of Madagascar. She then brought it up to 10 with Bucket & Skinner, which premiered after this episode. She also appeared on the new series Figure It Out, bringing it up to 11.
  • Ponnie said that she was in the spring showcase with Tori; however, considering the fact that she is crazy, this may or may not be true.
  • Cat wears the same blue dress she wore in The Gorilla Club.
  • Ponnie wore a Blonde wig in this episode, although this could very well be Jennette's real hair pinned up and put into a hat.
  • This is the second time Tori's hair is straightened, the first being the Pilot, however in this episode it is only straightened for the first half.
  • Ending Tagline: Lick my loafers, Debby!
  • Mrs. Vega owns a Brown PearPhone XT.
  • Mrs. Vega may be having an affair with Gary.
  • This episode features the first time that the kids "who sit in the back and just react to stuff", also known as the "reactors", actually speak.
  • The evil Talking Tori doll used in this episode is actually an American Girl Doll which you can buy here
  • Viewership: The episode received 2.603 million on its premiere night, which is a bit more than the 2.367 million its lead-in iCarly got. It also performed over a million better than it's lead-out Bucket and Skinner, making it the top rated show on Nick for the night. Still, the episode is the second lowest rated episode of season three, slightly ahead of How Trina Got In. [1] Competition-wise, it aired during a Boston/Miami NBA Playoffs game which was #1 on cable for the week.
  • When Cats hair grows back it would be brown since the actor is a brunnette and dyed her hair magenta-ish color.
  • This is the second time Tori has had a meltdown, the first being in Ice Cream for Ke$ha.
  • If you look closely at Robbie when Jade tackles Cat to the ground in Sikowitz's classroom, he is eagerly pumping his fist and appears to be cheering.
  • The ending to this episode (Ponnie driving the police car) is quite dark for a Nickelodeon show.
  • The title of this episode is VERY simular to Disney Channel's Jessie episode which is called Creepy Connie.


  • When Holly (Mrs.Vega) finds Tori downstairs, she says it is around 3:30 in the morning, but she looks like she just did her hair and makeup. Of course they look like this for the TV, but most characters of shows are depicted with messy hair like Tori's when they wake up or are tired. She probably looked like this because of the way she slept.
  • At the beginning of the episode, Trina's tissue moves about the locker between shots.
  • Cat is shown completely bald at the end of this episode, however in the next coming episodes, she has her hair back again even.
  • It would actually be illegal for Ponnie to dress up like an officer, and drive a registered police car, so if Ponnie tries to do something like driving Tori and Trina somewhere else than the police office, or home, the cops will notice, and come after the car (as that every police car is connected with the others).
  • Goof on TheSlap
  • Ponnie said she continued to eat her lunch in the janitors closet but she flushed her sandwich in the toilet and she was in the asphalt cafe with no lunch with her. She could have bought lunch in the grub truck but it is unlikely she did because she said its her first time in the asphalt cafe. Despite this, even though this may be unlikely, Ponnie may have had more food in her locker or her backpack.
  • Ponnie says "Your locker used to be my locker", But the locker that used to be there before Tori's is the one on the right of her locker.
  • Even though it's said Beck has never experienced true fear, he gives more of a frightened reaction than the easily-frightened Robbie when Jade jumps through the window and screams.
  • Jade can't possibly make Cat completely bald with just a pair of scissors. She will need a razor and wax to make her completely bald.
  • When Cat came to the classroom saying Jade is gonna kill her, you can see the door opened in one scene and when Jade came out the window the door was closed.
  • When everyone is outside having lunch, Jade reaches for Cat with the hadcuffs on, the camera cuts to Cat, when it cuts back to Jade her Jet Brew coffee is gone. The camera cuts to Robbie, when it cuts back Jade's Jet Brew coffee is back.

  • Ponnie disappearing when there are other people around.
  • Cat running and hiding from Jade.
  • Holly and Gary being way too nice to each other.

  • People saying "This stall is taken".
  • Cat saying "She's trying to kill me!".
