TV movies

Drake & Josh Go Hollywood
Drake and Josh are left at home after their parents go on a 10 day cruise. They are told to bring Megan to the airport to visit her friend in Denver, but accidentally send her on the wrong flight to Los Angeles, California. They go to Hollywood to get her back, and end up stopping a multi-billion dollar heist. Meanwhile, Josh becomes Drake's manager and gets Drake a gig on TRL. The movie aired on January 6, 2006.


Drake & Josh: Really Big Shrimp
Spin City Records is wanting to sign Drake for their label. He is on the road to fame and fortune, but Josh's inexperience as a manager (and his titular fondness) leads him to sign the contract without reading it, accidentally signing over creative rights for Drake's new song. The special aired on August 3, 2007.


Merry Christmas, Drake and Josh
Mall Santa Drake makes a promise to a foster child, Mary Alice that he must keep his Christmas promise to give her and her foster family "The best Christmas ever", but things go wrong when Drake has a party on the roof of The Premiere and Josh ends up mistakenly getting arrested. Drake then tries to get him out but ends up getting caught, too as the two stepbrothers are saved by Helen when the Judge makes a deal with the two to give Mary Alice and her foster family "the best Christmas ever" and if they fail they go back to prison. The movie aired on December 5, 2008 and is the series finale.
