Drake has great interest in music, playing the electric guitar in a band throughout the series and liking all forms, his favorite being rock.
He can also play several percussion instruments, shown in "Megan's New Teacher" when he tried to play drums and guitar at the same time and in "Josh Runs Into Oprah" where he played the bongos.
Drake Parker (Drake Bell) is depicted as a laid-back, charming, immature, and womanizing teenager.
Although he often appears unintelligent, his under-achievement seems to be caused by apathy and he has been known not to think before he acts (getting straight D's in school).
Because Walter is unable to discipline the boys, she usually has to punish the boys although these punishments are usually unfair because most are Megan's fault.
As stepmother and stepson, Audrey and Josh have a very fond relationship, and he affectionately calls her "Mom" or "Mama".
However, later, he begins to date Mindy Crenshaw, who is his academic rival.
She is a very generous and loving mother however a bit naive when it comes to her daughter Megan, especially when it is Megan's word against Drake and Josh.
Despite his arrogance and selfishness, Drake still redeems himself by doing the right thing. In 2010, Drake Bell made an appearance in the i Carly Season 3 episode "i Bloop" which stars his Drake & Josh co-star Miranda Cosgrove.
He reprised his role as Drake Parker to make an appearance in the episode, during which he seems to have stepped into the alternate fictional universe of i Carly where he recognizes Cosgrove's character as Megan Parker and follows by asking the whereabouts of Josh and the rest of his family.
A running gag involves a rivalry between him and Bruce Winchill, an unseen weatherman from another station.
He hates that Winchill is so popular, as he is always right with his predictions, and even forbids the use of Winchill's name in the family home.
