  • Great!

    After Drake & Josh's parents tell them they are forbidden to drive their new dune buggey,Drake drives it anyway. What happens next? Watch it and find out!

    A great 2nd entry!
  • Not my all-time favorite episode BUT it was overall superb in my opinion.

    I thought that this was a superb episode of "Drake and Josh". It was hilarious when Drake's friend Trevor brought in the dune buggy and it's all wrecked. Drake's friend Trevor is so freakin' stupid but hilarious in this episode. It was hilarious when Josh fell off the dune buggy and hurt himself. Drake destroying the dune buggy was so funny. Trevor patting Drake on the back and then Drake falls on the floor was hilarious. It was hilarious when the doctor told Trevor that he is worried about Trevor and that he needs to get his brain scanned. Drake trying to hide his injury from the dune buggy from Josh and his parents was funny. Drake trying to carry Megan upstairs without falling down was so funny. Josh getting a call from the hospital and finding out that Drake destroyed the dune buggy was very funny. Josh asking his dad if he could wrestle Drake to try to get him exposed that he is injured was hilarious especially when Walter threw Drake right on the floor. Josh doing his victory dance when Drake was finally busted about the dune buggy was funny. My score was just a little low because I didn't like that Drake would get away with everything and not get in trouble and I also didn't like the ending because Josh had to give Drake some things like pizza and all that while Drake is lying in bed. Overall, this was a superb episode of "Drake and Josh". 9/10

    Drake and Josh's friend gives them a dune buggy that is in terrible condition. They fix it up, but are disappointed to learn that their parents won't let them drive it. So, drake sneaks it out, and ends up getting in an accident. What will happen? Will their parents find out?

    Obviously one of the first episodes I saw, and I still like it. It's a pretty funny episode with a plot that has been done before (there was an episode of Malcolm in the Middle that had the same basic plot, except that was a mini bike). Still a good episode. A+moreless
  • A very good episode

    Drake crashes the dune buggy that he's not supposed to be driving, and ends up injured, barely able to stand. Josh finds out when he gets a call from the emergency room saying Drake left his wallet there. Furious with Drake for wrecking what he had spent most of his time fixing, he guilts Drake into telling their parents what happened.

    I liked this episode a lot, because it shows how honesty is a good thing, but to also listen to your parents once in while, because they might actually know what they're talking about. It also shows how not thinking of only yourself is a good thing.moreless

  • NOTES (5)

    • This is the last episode to be produced of season 1.

    • During the scene where Drake and Josh are in the living room you can hear the sound coming off the TV which is a "Tony Pajamas" skit on The Amanda Show which featured Drake Bell and Josh Peck.

    • The song that Drake and Josh heard in the dune buggy was "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous", by Good Charlotte.

    • The teaser of this episode shows Josh talking about how irresponsible Drake is and how he gets away with everything. Then, Drake hits Josh on the head with a pillow while Josh is playing with the TV. Josh steals the pillow and throws it at Drake, who ducks. Root beer spills on the TV and causes it to defuse.
      The tag of this episode shows Drake trying carry a bunch of things and dropping all of them.

    • Taran Killam played Spaulding on the skit "Moody's Point" on "The Amanda Show."


    • Music: "Life Styles of the Rich and Famous"

      When Drake and Josh turn on the radio of the dune buggy "Life Styles of the Rich and Famous" by Good Charlotte plays.
