  • Tales and laughes unfold....

    This episode was hillarious! Tales and laughes unfold, as the cast of the Suite Life dream themselves into everyone's favorat fairy tales! Snow White and the Seven Dwarves: Debby Ryan (Bailey) does really well in the role of the sweet and innocent Snow White, as Brenda Song takes the ecotistical side of London Tipton to the extreme when she plays the wicked, yet highly dim-witted queen. Zack, Woody, and Marcus as the three sloppy drarfes accept Snow into their home as long as she cleans up their messes. Then when the queen still seeks out to finish the deed, Snow Bailey gets knocked out with the regulair apple. She is only to be awakened by the dashing Price Cody, who gets hit with pepper spray when she wakes up from unconsciousness. (OH, that was FUNNY!!!). And they all, except for Queen London who bit the wrong apple... lived happily ever.... wait it's not done yet! Hanzel and Gretel: Hanzel (Zack) and Gretel (Cody) get lost in the forrest, only to find a cute, little house made of candy. It is owned by a witch (Ms. Tutwiller) who willing to have them for... oh, you know the pun. Hanzel is getting stuffed, but Gretel... I mean "Greg" still retains Cody's heathy habits. And while Zack is looking like Humpty Dumpty, the two learn from the kid in the pie (Bailey) that the witch plans to eat them! But instead of throwing her in the oven, they give her a makeover and set her up with the squirral who likes breadcrumbs (Woody). Jack and the Beanstock: Now, I didn't like this one as much because I thought the others were funnier, but it was still good. Zack sells his sassy cow (Bailey) and gets magic beans from a mysterious magician (Marcus), and they grow a bean stock. Zack goes up to get some food, but ends up in a doll house, where he meets London playing a goose (oh, that was good) and Cody as the enchanted harp (good choice). The owner of the doll house is Mr. Moesby the giant! And he doesn't like hulligans! Zack gets down the beanstock with the harp but somwhat of a "giant" is still there. And... well, Zack kind of wakes up. I wish I could have seen a better ending to that one. In the long run, this was a really funny episode, and it was good to see more of the comedic potential of these young actors... and Phil Lewis. I always love a good story, and I totally reccommend this to anybody.moreless
  • THE BOTTOM LINE: Once Upon a Suite life is a must see if you like The Suite Life on Deck, and if you've previously disliked the show, this episode may win you over.moreless

    This episode was very well done and filled with one liners and bad puns which will have you repeatedly rolling on the floor laughing and also smacking your forehead for both how great, and how corny, the jokes are! I mean this in the most positive way. I believe this to be the second funniest episode I've seen after Marriage 101 (which you should also see, and it may just be a matter of taste which episode you think is funnier).

    This episode is focused on three fairytale parodies cast by the twins and the other stars of The Suite Life on Deck. If you like fairytales, comedy, and pandemonium, you will love this episode.

    Every character in the show has their moment of hilarity! Each one has at least one great line or part.

  • Its good but it not bad.

    This episode is pretty cool and good. I just smiling and pretty interest about this because fairytale is more fascinating and made me more interest of something different. That's like it part of playing the performance in the stage audition. Bailey is acting like Snow White. Woody is acting like a Dwarf too, and Cody is acting like he became Prince Charming in "Shrek 2" movie. Ha ha! That's what I'm thinking. So... I'm curious about Miss Tuttwellier. Why Miss Tuttwellier talking way too much like about 25 minutes in history class when Woody, Bailey, Cody, Zack, Marcus, and London is catching some Z's without listening Miss Tuttwellier saying? That's pretty silly when actor members began filmed "Once Upon a Suite Life".moreless

  • NOTES (5)

    • Apparently Miss Tutweiller said that the school board would not allow her to hit Zack, but in "In the Line Of Duty" she let the other students in detention beat up Zack.

    • London's talking mirror, as seen in the The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, makes its first appearance in The Suite Life On Deck.

    • Mr. Moseby only appears in the fairy tale dream. He doesn't actually appear in the episode.

    • The pizza boxes in the Dwarve's house say "Pinnochio's Pizza" on them.

    • The little tune that was played when the scene changed in each fairy tale was Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy melody from Peter Ilyich Tchhaikovsky's famous ballet, "The Nutcracker".


    • Zack: (to Cody) It's you Dumbelina!

      This is a parody to the classic fairy tale Thumbelina.

    • Sugar Momma
      This reference refers to a older woman with a younger male, this is the case as Zack mentions she her "sugar momma."

    • Marcus: (to Ms. Tutweiller) Someday, your prince will come.

      This is a reference to the song Someday My Prince Will Come sung by Disney's Snow White.

    • Zack: (as Hanzel) "Old Women and Shoe Plus 8" is on.

      This is a reference to the reality show Jon and Kate Plus 8, as well as a reference to the nursery rhyme "The Old Women Who Lived in a Shoe".

    • Mr. Moseby: (as Hunter) You should hear the rest of the band, "Beauty and the Beasty Boys".

      This refers to the classic fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast.

    • Mrs. Tutweiller: (as Mother) Oh please, this is just like the time you cried 'wolf'.

      This is a reference to the classic fable, The Boy Who Cried Wolf, about a young shepherd who keeps tricking the nearby villagers by announcing an attack by a wolf, in which nobody believes the boy when a real wolf comes. The story has often used been used in English, as a way to teach people the moral about the wrongs in lying.

    • Mr. Moseby: (as Father) Hey look, the emperor has no clothes!

      This is a reference to the classic tale, The Emperor's New Clothes. Moseby is referring to the part of the story where the emperor's tailors trick the emperor into 'wearing' a suit that can't be seen by anyone who is a fool, and the emperor ends up parading around in the town not wearing any clothes at all.

    • The Seven Dwarfs
      Zack, Woody, and Marcus's dwarf look is based off of the character design of the seven dwarfs in Walt Disney's classic adaptation of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, in which they have large round noses and long beards. Even their dwarf names (ex. Lazy, Sloppy) which end with a "y" refers to the names of the dwarfs, such as Sleepy, Sneezy, or Dopey. Also, when Dwarf Zack, Dwarf Woody, and Dwarf Marcus leave for work and bye to Snow White (Bailey), their quote "Bye Snow, Bye Snow, it's off to...well, you know" refers to the song that Disney's seven dwarfs sing "Heigh-Ho", which often goes "Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho, it's off to work we go."
