Battle of Panthatar is the sixteenth episode of the fourth season of Drake & Josh.


Drake and Josh are invited to their friend Thornton's sixteenth birthday bash which will air on MTV live. However, their invitations are revoked after Thornton catches Drake kissing his girlfriend. To get into the party, Josh pushes a reluctant Drake into giving Thornton his autographed Abbey Road (The Beatles) album which is what he had just received from an English man. Even though he accepts the gift and labels it as his best birthday gift, Thornton still does not welcome them into the party. As a result, Drake and Josh invade the party dressed up as the Red Skynauts from Galaxy Wars (a parody of Star Wars) with Lightsabers, to try to get the album back. Unfortunately, they are discovered but they are able to escape with Drake secretly getting the album back.



  • Audrey and Walter do not appear in this episode. Audrey was only mentioned at the end by Josh.
  • This marks the last episode since Football to feature just Drake, Josh, and Megan without Audrey and Walter.
  • This is the last episode that Audrey does not appear in.
  • This episode was directed by Josh Peck, who plays Josh in the show.
  • When Josh is watching TV (before the MTV crew arrive) the announcer on the TV says, "Coming up next on Susanna Louisiana...", which is a parody of Hannah Montana.
  • Dude, I'm 16. is a parody of My Super Sweet 16.
  • Galaxy Wars is also mentioned frequently in Zoey 101, iCarly, Victorious , and Henry Danger.
  • Nathan Kress, who played Thornton's little brother, Toplin, made a cameo, but his scene was cut.
    • He did appear in the background of a later scene.
  • It is mentioned by Megan that Thornton's brother, Toplin, has a "thing" for her. Since Toplin is played by Nathan Kress and Megan is played by Miranda Cosgrove, it is similar to iCarly because Freddie Benson, who is also played by Nathan Kress, has a thing for his neighbor Carly Shay, who is also played by Miranda Cosgrove.
    • Toplin was written to make an appearance in the episode, but was written out because it was confusing fans for Freddie Benson on iCarly.
  • It's possible that Thornton uninvited Josh even for nothing due to the fact that he uninvited Drake, as earlier in the episode he stated "if he has to invite Drake, then he had to invite Josh too".
  • Josh mentions B.F. Wangs from Steered Straight when he says both him and Drake cut through the parking lot.
  • This is the only episode featuring Club Diego as one of the places Drake and Josh go.
  • This is the last episode where the word "Evil" is used.


  • Drake says he went to Thornton's house to apologize after kissing his girlfriend Maria by accident. When Josh asks him what happened next, Drake says that Thornton's housekeeper kicked him out by hitting him with a broom and falling down some brick stairs. However, when Drake comes back telling Josh what happened, he's not shown to be hurt.
    • It is likely his injuries have already healed by then.
  • While Drake is beginning to eat the banana, it has no bruises, but then seconds later while he is eating it, it is covered in bruises.
