Josh Runs Into Oprah
Vicious Tiberius is the second episode of the fourth season of Drake & Josh.
Drake and Josh volunteer to watch and take care of Mrs. Hayfer's house while she is on vacation. When they arrive at Mrs. Hayfer's house, they meet with Mrs. Hayfer's pet dog Tiberius. They find out that he is a vicious and dangerous Rottweiler. Drake and Josh lock themselves in the bathroom until they devise a plan to escape out of Mrs. Hayfer's house without getting killed by Tiberius.
Meanwhile, Walter is working out so that he can finally best his rival Bruce Winchill. After he is finished, he goes over to Mrs. Hayfer's house to look for Drake and Josh, but he ends up getting chased by Tiberius all the way to their house by the end of the episode.
- Drake Bell as Drake Parker
- Josh Peck as Josh Nichols
- Jonathan Goldstein as Walter Nichols
- Miranda Cosgrove as Megan Parker
- Julia Duffy as Alice Hayfer
- Buddy Lewis as Animal Control Guy
- Audrey is absent in this episode.
- This episode aired one year after Paging Dr. Drake.
- The song Walter was singing while working out is Highway to Nowhere by Drake Bell.
- It is hinted from this episode that Drake is horrible at geography, but this could be pretty obvious since Drake does really bad at school.
- In the book version, the Animal Control Guy's ID name is Stan.
- When Josh helps Drake from hanging on Mrs. Hayfer's ceiling fan, Drake is on Josh's shoulders, but they're not exactly doing it just like in the theme song as the camera is in another position and Drake says "over your shoulder" in the theme song.
- When the dog catcher runs in Mrs. Hayfer's bathroom first and then Drake and Josh running in the bathroom second from Tiberius, Drake's butt crack is briefly seen when they close the bathroom door.
- This episode is quite similar to "What's Bothering Bob" from Martha Speaks when Truman, Helen, Alice, TD, Kazuo, the pizza guy, and Bob's owner are trapped sitting in a tree's branch when Bob is a bit moody, barking a lot, and being a chaser, chasing anything and anyone.
- This is the first episode where Drake and Josh's bedroom is not featured.
- In Honor Council, Josh said that Mrs. Hayfer's full name is Alice Hayfer. But in the Search for the Star" video, it says that her full name is Linda Hayfer. Alice is possibly her middle name.
- Or it is likely she changed her first name from Linda to Alice.
- When Drake and Josh are trying to get through the door, but the stick Josh was holding was blocking the way, the camera shows the front of them and when it does, the stick is at an angle. However, the camera cuts to the back of them and now, the stick is straight.
- Mrs. Hayfer's porch looks very different from how it did in Mean Teacher.
- It's possible she moved since that episode.
- When Drake tells Josh to open the bathroom door on 3, the toilet seat is down but when Drake runs into the door and hit his head falling on the ground when Josh doesn't open it, the toilet seat is up but in the next scene where Josh finally opens the door and Drake runs out of the bathroom, the toilet seat is down again, it changes up and down in multiple scenes back and forth.
- The first time Drake runs to the door, Josh doesn't open it because Drake never said "go." However, at the end, when Drake runs to the door, Josh opens it even though Drake doesn't say "go".
