  • I didn't like it

    Zack and Cody wish upon a star to become superheroes, and succeed, but find out that Moseby is their arch nemesis and his minions are Arwin and Esteban. And they capture Maddie. Lame. Now I know why people criticize Season 3.
  • Zack and Cody, the SUPERHEROES

    Why people hate this one so much, I personally thought it was another good one from the "downhill" Season 3. Zack and Cody. It was a great Season 3 episode. The story was interesting and as usual Phil Lewis was AWESOME as the super-villain.

    Funny episode- One of the few good ones from this season
  • stranded in dinosaur era

    am i the only one that thought when they ran back in time to the dinosaur era that they wouldn't have powers and would have been stranded there? and after zack rescued maddie the girls could have still tied her up and bury her in the ant hill

  • Bad

    OK, so this episode aired on "Wish Gone Amiss" weekend on Disney Channel, where this show, Hannah Montana, and Cory in the House all had a dream come true but stuff would go wrong. OK, Hannah Montana... wishes she were always Hannah Montana. Cory in the House... wishes he was President. The Suite Life Of Zack and Cody... wishes they were superheroes?! Sorry, it's too unrealistic. The other wishes actually made sense for their shows but this one was so out of the blue, which ruins it, and it simply was not funny with a lame plot.

  • Zack andy Cody make wishes to have sup powers, and get pulled into one of the most bizarre episodes in the series.

    This was one of three Disney crossover episodes where the stars of two of its top shows and one of its worst shows (we know which one) get wishes. Of them, Hannah possibly got the best one, but Cody and Zack had the funniest and most bizarre with every sort of stupid "super-hero" trait ridiculed. They get to be super-heroes, not realizing to be super-heroes they are required to have a villain, and Moseby's eccentric frustration with kids leads to him wanting to age all kids into mini-adults. Every superhero cliche is explored and exaggerated with Esteban and Arwin becoming inept minions, and Moseby getting even more frustrated. There is a nice touch where Cody has his mental powers increased to include telepathy and telekinesis and Zack has his physical ability increased to include speed but not superhuman strength (although he might have super-heling). Moseby gets various eye visions (red is heat, violet is tactile used for tickling, yellow is mind control, blue reverts kids to minor adults...). Shame Maddie didn't get to be a superhero; she'd been wonderful as a Supergirl-spoof having to save Cody and Zack from themselves and the idiotic plot, but she and Carey have to be victims. In all, it's not a great episode, but the cast seems to have fun.moreless

  • NOTES (7)

    • This episode premeired on Disney Channel Australia on April 25, 2008.

    • Zack claims that Moseby must have made a wish for powers too, but that is highly unlikely since Moseby in the past doesn't care for childish fantasies. It is far more likely his powers are a side result of Zack and Cody's wish for super-powers due to a cosmic balance to grant them a worthy nemesis.

    • Zack and Cody get powers connected to their personalities. While Cody's powers are mental (telepathy and telekinesis), Zack's physical strength increases, but only in his legs, not allowing him to have superhuman strength, but his leg strength should be able to kick things quite far. His mental acuity has obviously increased to be able to perceive his perceptions at high speed (although he claimed he still read at a third grade level) and he probably had superhuman hearing, since he heard a girl say he was cute when he should have been really far from Maddie's cabin.

    • Mr. Moseby has five laser powers when he supposedly wishes on the shooting star. He can create a blue beam as a freeze ray, a red beam as a heat ray, a purple beam as a tactile beam (used to tickle people), a yellow beam as a hypnotic ray (used to control and manipulate others to his wishes) and a green beam to age children into mini-adults or convert adults back to childhood.

    • London names her diamonds. Her favorite diamond is named Tina.

    • Holly's 4th appearance
      Leah's 3rd appearance
      Jasmine's 3rd appearance
      Amy's 3rd appearance

    • This episode aired as part of Disney Channel's Wish Gone Amiss Weekend.


    • Pinocchio

      When Zack tells Maddie "I've wished upon a star and got supersonic powers". This what Geppetto did to wish for a real boy on the 1940 animated movie Pinocchio.

    • Up, up, and... down

      Though this is an allusion to the Disney Channel movie Up, Up, and Away, it was used first in the old Superman Forties radio series to indicate to listeners when Superman was flying. Superman is a copyrighted character of DC Comics.

    • The plot where Zack spins around fast to make the world rotate backwards and turn back time is an allusion to the 1978 film, Superman, in which Superman flew around the Earth to make time go backwards in order to save Lois Lane.

    • Carey's line, "With super power comes super responsibility" is an allusion to the 2002 movie, Spider-Man, which had the line, "With great power comes great responsibility."
