Drake and Josh now live in the same house and are forced to share a room.
Drake is a relaxed, simple, lucky, lazy, popular, and attractive teenage boy. Drake's main talent is guitar playing, which he uses (along with his looks) to attract girls. Josh, on the other hand, is a diligent teenager concerned mainly with his grades and being a model citizen. His actions earn him a reputation as a klutz and a tattletale, although he is capable of having a good time.
