Theater Thug is the seventeenth episode of the third season of Drake & Josh. It aired on February 18, 2006.
Josh re-enacts a criminal called the Theater Thug on "FBI's Most Wanted" (a spoof of America's Most Wanted) at The Premiere, but ends up being mistaken for the real Theater Thug and gets arrested several times. Later on, the real Theater Thug shows up at the Premiere near closing time and robs Josh. After a fight, Josh manages to pin him down, but the cops arrive and mistake Josh for the Theater Thug, arresting him while accidentally letting the Thug escape.
- The Hippie disguise used by Josh, "Antoine" and his line "What it is?" was originally used in an episode of the Nickelodeon show All That (produced by Dan Schneider). Kenan Thompson played him.
- The second disguise Megan and Drake showed Josh is a morphed photo of Zoey Brooks from Dan Schneider's other show, Zoey 101. You see her dorm key on the necklace.
- During the reenactment at the cinema, Drake's shirt had the letters USSR on it, which is an abbreviation of The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, which is more commonly known as the Soviet Union.
