Drake and Josh Wiki

Sheldon was a pet turtle owned by Josh Nichols when the latter was little.


Not much is known about how Josh obtained Sheldon, but Josh mentioned that he was very close to him. According to Josh, when Sheldon was scared he would pee in Josh's hand.

Eventually Sheldon passed away, it was mentioned in "Two Idiots and a Baby" that this occurred when Josh was in kindergarden and was the result of Josh forgetting to feed him, while the opening scene in Playing the Field mentions he died when he was in third grade.

To replace Sheldon, Walter bought him a lizard named Julio who Josh hated. Every instance of Julio's deranged antics only made Josh miss Sheldon even more.

When Josh was dangling off the roof in "Two Idiots and a Baby", he saw it as his comeuppance for letting Sheldon die.
