1 1 "Pilot" Virgil L. Fabian Dan Schneider January 11, 2004 101
Drake Parker (Drake Bell) is a cool and popular teenager while Josh Nichols (Josh Peck) is a geeky teenager whom Drake describes as unusual. Drake's mom Audrey Parker (Nancy Sullivan) and Josh's dad Walter Nichols (Jonathan Goldstein) have been dating and announce to Drake, Josh, and Drake's devious little sister, Megan (Miranda Cosgrove), that they are getting married. Josh is thrilled about having a new stepbrother, but Drake is not. Drake is even less excited when he finds out that Josh is Miss Nancy, the anonymous advice columnist for the school newspaper, and that Josh believes he must dress like a woman to adequately write his advice. Drake then uses this to get a date with Tiffany Margolis (Julie Gonzalo), who wrote to Miss Nancy. But Josh gets in trouble when her angered boyfriend Buck (Joey Mendicino) thinks she is on a date with Josh instead and challenges him to a fight. Josh trains all day under a karate instructor but still ends up getting knocked out with one punch. Drake eventually apologizes and helps Josh realize that he can give good advice without wearing his Miss Nancy dress. Both make up and accept each other as brothers.
2 2 "Dune Buggy" Virgil L. Fabian Dan Schneider January 18, 2004 106
Drake and Josh are excited to receive a dune buggy from his friend Trevor (Taran Killam), only to find it is broken down. Later, Drake convinces Josh to try out lying after Josh accidentally breaks the TV, but Josh is grounded for doing so. Drake and Josh then fully repair the dune buggy, to the surprise of their parents, who forbid them from driving it. Drake secretly drives it with Trevor anyway and crashes. Drake attempts to conceal his bruises and the damages to the dune buggy, but Josh eventually finds out when he gets a call from the emergency room and confronts Drake about it, angry that all Drake cares about is keeping the accident and his injuries a secret from their parents. Racked with guilt, Drake confesses to Walter and Audrey, and they ground Drake for two weeks, much to Josh's delight. However, due to Drake's injury, his "grounding" is simply staying home from school, resting, and making Josh be his servant.
3 3 "Believe Me, Brother" Virgil L. Fabian Dan Schneider February 1, 2004 102
Josh has suspicions that Susan (Ashley Drane), Drake's new girlfriend, is flirting with him behind Drake's back. Drake laughs it off at first, but then becomes angry when he catches Susan kissing Josh and believes Josh is trying to steal Susan from him. Josh tries to explain his innocence to Drake, but Drake ignores him and the two become increasingly distant. Drake eventually learns the truth when Megan inserts a video of Susan flirting with Josh (along with many other embarrassing shots of Drake and Josh) into their music video project. Enraged and betrayed, Drake dumps a horrified Susan, and the two boys then thank a stunned Megan for her prank, and get even with Susan by putting purple paint in her locker.

When Audrey and Walter go out to dinner with Mr. and Mrs. Galloway, Josh offers to babysit Mr. and Mrs. Galloway's son Max, much to Drake's dismay. After Drake and Josh struggle to get Max changed and then put to sleep, Drake leaves to play at a concert. Josh panics when Max disappears and ends up getting stuck on the roof looking for him. However, underlying loyalty compels Drake to return and help Josh find Max just before Audrey, Walter, Mr. and Mrs. Galloway return.
5 5 "First Crush" Virgil L. Fabian Steve Holland February 15, 2004 104
Josh gets his first crush on Kathy (Erin Chambers) but cannot stop saying ridiculous things such as "Spoons" to her. While trying to impress her, he accidentally says that he can play the guitar, which he cannot. Kathy wants Josh to play her a song at her birthday party, which is at the coffee shop not only run by Josh's former karate teacher, but the same one Drake just got banned from because of a prank involving Megan's pet snake.
6 6 "Grammy" Virgil L. Fabian Andrew Hill Newman February 22, 2004 105
When Megan, Audrey and Walter leave the house for the weekend, Drake and Josh's dreams of a parent-free weekend are dashed when Josh's grandmother and Walter's mom Grammy (Randee Heller) comes to babysit. Josh is glad to have Grammy around, but Drake does not like her. Drake wants to attend a concert with his friends, but Grammy forbids him from going and his friends also cannot go, because the tickets are sold out. However, they make a deal in which Drake can spend time with his friends if he beats Grammy in a basketball game, as long as he does not attend the concert. Drake wins the game, but is forced to break his promise out of peer-pressure when his friends are able to get tickets for the concert. Once there, they find out the tickets they have are actually counterfeit, and are detained at the venue until Grammy pays a $200 fine to release them. Grammy then reveals that she let Drake win so he could go with his friends. Drake does not believe her and decides to play again, under the condition that if he wins, no one tells his parents about the concert. Grammy agrees on the condition that if he loses, he will tell his parents about the concert. Drake loses the game, but when his parents come home, Grammy stops him from telling his parents, seeing as he paid back the $200 and was willing to tell them, and that was a good enough punishment for her (Grammy instead tells Drake's parents that she beat Drake at basketball). Drake finally accepts Grammy and they hug each other goodbye, with Grammy secretly sticking an envelope onto Drake's back paying him back the $200 he gave her.
