Dan Schneider Exclusive: Crazy Steve’s Bad Day on the “Drake and Josh” Finale

It’s only right that fan-favorite Crazy Steve from Dan Schneider’s “Drake and Josh” has a moment all to himself in the final episode of the series.

For those in need of a refresher, Steven William Upshaw, also known as “Crazy Steve,” is an employee of The Premiere Theatre who is, well, not entirely mentally stable, mentally. But don’t worry — Steve embraces it. He even has a custom license plate reading CRAZY1.

In “Really Big Shrimp Part 2,” Josh’s ex Mindy (who is promoted to assistant manager over Josh, to his dismay) schedules Crazy Steve to work on a Monday.

She immediately regrets her decision after Crazy Steve comes barreling through the doors swinging tennis shoes around on bras like nunchucks. You see, Monday is Crazy Steve’s bad day. You might even say he hates Mondays as much as he loves “Dora the Explorer.”

It’s hard to blame Steve: objectively, Mondays are definitely the worst day of the week. Most of us can suppress our Monday fury, but Crazy Steve, brave soul, acts the way we all feel.

Since Josh knows all about Crazy Steve’s case of the Mondays, he’s the only one able to step in to stop the madness. After yelling fan-favorite nonsense like “Cock a doodle doo the cow says moo,” and “You ate my enchilada,” Crazy Steve calms when Josh serenades him with a touching rendition of “She’ll Be Comin’ Round The Mountain When She Comes.”

Much to Josh’s delight, his tactic works. Crazy Steve comes back down to reality in a messy heap. “I’m sorry, I want to stop,” Steve exclaims.

It was a sweet, yet hilarious moment between the two — appropriate for the final episode of one of Nickelodeon’s favorite sitcoms.

“Really Big Shrimp Part 2” follows Drake and Josh as they get caught up in a legal battle with Spin City Records. In the episode, Josh makes a mistake with Drake’s paperwork, which in turn messes up the final version of Drake’s song set to air in a Super Bowl commercial.

Despite the series finale’s madness — and Crazy Steve’s Monday-induced breakdown — the gang manages to clear everything up. Josh gets back with Mindy, Drake’s original song gets played, and Josh becomes assistant manager of the movie theatre once and for all.

It was a beautiful send off for one of Nickelodeon’s most beloved shows.

What was your favorite moment from the Drake & Josh finale?

Dan Schneider Presents: Ask Ashley’s Best Advice Ever

Amanda Bynes’ classic “All That” segment, “Ask Ashley,” featured the then-10 year old giving advice to some, well, seriously troubled letter writers. Shouting at the top of one’s lungs might not be the best way to share wisdom, it sure made for great entertainment! And no matter how silly the questions asked were, we always found her advice pretty inspired. Even if it earned the camera person a smack on the head.

So here is the best advice given by Ask Ashley (Thaaaaat’s me!). May you never need it!


One letter writer expressed ire when her mom made her sandwich with the peanut butter and jelly on the wrong pieces of bread. Ashley immediately spots the flawed logic here, as simply turning the sandwich over would reverse which slice is which!

This might be more instructive than you think if you replace sandwich with pillow, and you find yourself warm at night. Turn the stinkin’ pillow over and you’ll be super cool.


When a letter writer expresses worry about breaking her legs after jumping out the window of her second-story bedroom, and wonders how to avoid such injuries when leaving the house, Ashley is not having this nonsense. “Take the stairs, Einstein!” she bellows.

This is actually pretty good advice for anyone: jumping out of the window is a recipe for disaster. FYI. If you didn’t know.


A very smelly letter-writer named Eugene is upset when he gets dirtier every day— so dirty, in fact, that his own grandmother can’t stand it! Ashley’s advice? You guessed it: take a bath, for Pete’s sake, Eugene!

This may seem like common sense, and that’s because it totally is. But even those of us that bathe regularly can impart wisdom from this advice, as bathtime can be a really relaxing way to stay clean and unwind after a stressful day.


A very thirsty letter writer named Emily seeks Ashley’s advice because, well, she’s thirsty and has been for weeks. No word on how she survived to tell the tale, but Ashley has fool-proof answerhydration! and some other choice words for the “dry-mouthed weirdo.”


When Reggie writes Ashley about an uncooperative pet fish, Ashley is (as usual) flabbergasted at his stupidity: he’s been trying to take his goldfish for a walk! “Fish got no feet!” she screams, “and you got no brain!”

Low blow? Maybe, but Reggie should have definitely known better. And for all of you out there with an uncooperative pet, friend, or partner, take note: forcing someone or something to do something they are not capable of is just not right! Sometimes the best place for a fish is in the water where it belongs.

Thanks for the stellar advice, Ashley! What would we do without you?
