NICKELODEON sitcom Victorious was one of the most popular shows on the channel throughout the early 2010s.
Cat Valentine was one of the show's funniest and most animated characters, sometimes so animated to the point that she didn't know if she was coming or going.
Why is Cat so crazy in Victorious?
Cat has a very big heart and is arguably the most loving and caring character on the show, but on the other hand she gets distracted easily and can be quite dim-witted.
We know that her brother suffered from mental health and her parents were not the most caring and affectionate people, which could explain Cat's erratic personality.
However, another reason could be that she is bipolar, as she does show traits associated with the disorder such as inflated self-esteem, being more talkative than usual and having racing thoughts.
Other reasons to explain Cat's animated nature could range from potential autism to suffering abuse from her unhinged brother.
Who plays Cat in Nickelodeon show Victorious?
Cat was played by Ariana Grande, who has gone on to be a very successful singer since her days on Nickelodeon.
After Victorious came to an end in 2013, she starred in a spin-off show with iCarly star Jenette McCurdy called Sam And Cat, which ended after just one series in 2014.
Ariana starred in Victorious alongside Victoria Justice as Tori Vega, Leon Thomas III as Andre Harris, and Matt Bennett as Robbie Shapiro.
Dynasty star Elizabeth Gillies played Jade West, Avan Jogia was Beck Oliver and Daniella Monet starred as Trina Vega.
What was Victorious about?
Victorious revolves around aspiring singer Tori Vega, who attends a performing arts high school while getting into wacky situations virtually all the time.
Along the way, she meets her friends including Andre, a talented musician who becomes Tori's best friend at Hollywood Arts High School.
She also meets Cat, who she is also quite close with and socially-awkward Robbie who carries a puppet around called Rex, who actually has his own voice in the show.
Tori also meets Jade, a "mean girl" who sometimes gives Tori a hard time and can be described as her frenemy, along with her down-to-earth boyfriend Beck.
Why did Victorious get cancelled?
Victorious was cancelled before season four was due to begin filming.
Nickelodeon then decided to split the third season in half, which enabled the show to run for four seasons.
Many believed the reason for its cancellation was due to the spin-off show Sam And Cat which aired several months after Victorious came to an end, but after the news broke back in 2012, show creator Dan Schneider indicated that the show had run its course and had nothing to do with the network's future projects.

He took to Twitter and wrote: "This was the network’s decision – not mine. Please understand: Almost all Nickelodeon shows have a life of about 60 episodes.
"I would love to have made more than 60 of Victorious, but that’s how it usually goes. We’re extremely proud of the show, and all we’ve accomplished.
"The network’s decision about Victorious had nothing to do with 'Gibby' or 'Sam & Cat'. I promise. Even if there was no 'Gibby' and no 'Sam & Cat' – the network still would have ended Victorious after its 60-episode run."
