Trivia: Drake & Josh

  • Adored by the Network: When this show started airing, it quickly became Nickelodeon's top dog in terms of live-action shows - therefore one of the network's most popular shows. The series' popularity resulted in it being run a lot by Nickelodeon even after the show had ended and lead way to similar shows on Nick.
    • And now five years after it's ended, TeenNick seemed just as infatuated with this show as their parent channel once was. Try turning on TeenNick any given hour of the day, chances are this show or Zoey 101 will be on. On October 28, 2012, TeenNick finally realized people were likely annoyed with the constant re-runs so it was taken off the schedule. Then the show returned to TeenNick's schedule that December, though only in the overnight hours, showing the network has moved on...to milking other shows.
  • Billing Displacement: In airings of the Christmas Special, Miranda Cosgrove and Jerry Trainor (Carly and Spencer from iCarly) are emphasized more. Some commercials will actually say "Starring Miranda Cosgrove and Jerry Trainor", even though Jerry Trainor is at most an Ascended Extra.
  • The Danza: The eponymous characters.
  • Directed by Cast Member: Drake Bell directed the first part of Really Big Shrimp, while Josh Peck directed the episode The Storm (part one of a hurricane-themed crossover with Zoey 101 and Unfabulous).
  • Hey, It's That Guy! / Retroactive Recognition: A lot of then-obscure teenagers who appeared as one of Drake's girlfriends and/or as one-shot characters are presently well-known stars in various shows. Good lord, where to start...
  • Schedule Slip: Drake Bell's December 2005 car accident caused production of the fourth season to be postponed for three months, with three episodes short before hand.
