  • Great

    Zack and Cody try to keep Tippy, the horse from being sold to a mean lumberjack, so they try to hide him in the Tipton. Meanwhile, London loses Maddie's favorite brooch. This was awesome and I liked London's green dress and alligator boots. A+. Solid.
  • "Free Tippy" is FREE gold!

    I loved this episode. The plot was very strong, as was the subplot of Maddie losing her broach. In this episode, I began to feel for Tippy. Great episode, perfectly placed and with great acting.

    Some memorable moments in this episode! I loved it!
  • Free Tippy is a very funny episode. When Zack and Cody find out that Henry is being forced to retire and Tippy is being sold to some really mean guy they deside to steal Tippy and hide him in the hotel.moreless

    The fact that Tippy is a horse makes this whole thing even more hilarious. Mr. Tipton is forcing Henry to retire. He sold Tippy to a guy who plans on making Tippy do some really hard work. Zack and Cody hide Tippy in the hotel but Tippy gets away and wanders around the hotel. Zack and Cody run around trying to find him. The thing that I found interesting about this episode is that Henry and Tippy were never mentioned before this episode and they are never mentioned again after this episode. It doesn't matter though because the whole episode was very funny. It's a very good episode and a favorite of mine.moreless
  • A hilarious episode!

    Free Tippy was the 5th episode of Season 2 to air in the US, but it was the 2nd episode of Season 2 to be filmed. This episode was very adventurous. The Tipton has a rule that any employee that's over the age of 65 has to retire, so Henry and Tippy have to leave. Zack and Cody want to save the horse, so they hide it in Arwin's room, but it goes somewhere else. They get caught, but then Henry and Tippy don't have to retire. All thanks to Mrs. Delacourt. So all in all, a hilaious and great episode that's worth watching.moreless
  • Funny

    When Zack and Cody find out that the hotel horse Tippy is about to be sold, they try and do everything that they can to get the horse back. When London shows some interest with Maddie's sentimental jewel, she borrows it from her for the night. But when she comes home, she finds out that she lost it. She goes to the trashcan and spend all night looking for the missing jewel with some help from Arwin. This episode is so funny. The horse does a lot of funny stuff throughout the show, it's so hilarious, I really cracked up watching this episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (15)

    • When the boys are going to bed, Cody's blankie is near the wall. When he says "I think he wants to play," the blanket is on the other side.

    • This is the first time Cody has cake on his face.

    • When Moseby is talking on the phone and gives it to Mrs. Delacourt, it appears to be off.

    • Towards the end of the episode, when everyone is talking about Tippy and Henry, we can see that Arwin is no longer carrying all the metal he brought from the dumpster with his metal detector, which he was just carrying a few seconds ago.

  • NOTES (17)

      This is an allusion to the 2003 film, Seabiscuit, which was based on a true story about a famous race horse.

    • Carey hands Zack and Cody two rocks and says, "Here, pet rocks." This is a reference to a very popular fad from the 70s in which people would keep rocks for pets instead of animals.

    • Zack: (whispering) Here, Tippy. Here, horsey.
      Cody: What are you doing?
      Zack: I'm horse whispering.

    • The retiring at the age of 65 is a reference to Disney's 65 episode limit.

    • Title: Free Tippy

      This is an allusion to the 1993 film, Free Willy; where a kid forms a bond with an orca whale.
