Drake and Josh is a sitcom that premiered on Nickelodeon on January 11, 2004, and ended its run on December 5, 2008. It was created by Dan Schneider as a spin-off of The Amanda Show, in which Drake Bell and Josh Peck originally appeared. Although the first episode of the series is known to fans as the pilot, there was, however, a real pilot of the show.

This pilot was produced in 2003 and was made before Nickelodeon officially picked up the show. Not much is known about this except that it supposedly used the same plot as the first episode of the show, and Walter Nichols (Josh's Dad) was played by Stephen Furst instead of Jonathan Goldstein.

The pilot remained in obscurity until 2013 when Dan Schneider posted screenshots on his DanWarp Twitter account, and a short video of footage from the pilot showing Stephen Furst that was soon privatized. Other than that, no other piece of info is available for this pilot and has yet to be released by Nickelodeon or by Dan Schneider himself. There are clips in the promo.
