Megan's First Kiss
Really Big Shrimp
Battle of Panthatar is the sixteenth episode of the fourth season of Drake & Josh. It aired on April 15, 2007.
Drake and Josh are invited to their friend Thornton's 16th birthday bash, which will air on MTV. However, their invitations are revoked after Thornton catches Drake kissing his girlfriend. To get into the party, Josh pushes Drake into giving Thornton his autographed Abbey Road album. Even though he accepts the gift, Thorton still does not welcome them into the party. As a result, they invade the party dressed up as the Red Skynauts from Galaxy Wars (parody of Star Wars) to get the album back. Megan gets into the party because Thorton's brother has a "thing" for her. Drake and Josh get caught after they have to take place in the Battle of Panthatar and can't.
- 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, and Victorious.
- Fans of Drake & Josh find it completely unfair how Thornton uninvited Drake and Josh to his big Sweet 16 party because Drake was making out with his girlfriend Maria and he didn't know; they considered Thornton a big jerk.
- Fewer fans think it is Maria's fault calling Drake a better kisser than her own boyfriend, especially when she said it to him.
- Drake claiming of what reminded him of a funny story is a reference to We're Married?, where after the girl that Drake tried to get a date with found out that he was "married", she knocked him out with her purse.
- Nathan Kress, who played Thornton's little brother, Toplin, made a cameo, but his scene was cut.
- 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, who is also played by Nathan Kress, has a thing for his neighbor Carly, who is also played by Miranda Cosgrove.
- In reality, if Thornton reacted the way he did due to incidents such as an affair with his girlfriend, he would be extremely unpopular and friendless.
- It is unknown how Drake and Josh were able to get the Red Skynaut costumes off of the actors
