The Suite Life of Zack and Cody follows twin boys (Cole Sprouse, Dylan Sprouse) who take up residence in the fabulous Tipton Hotel when their Mom (Kim Rhodes) is hired to sing in the hotel’s lounge. Spoiled heiress London Tipton (Brenda Song) also lives at the hotel and, along with her friend Maddie (Ashley Tisdale), causes plenty of trouble of her own. Their antics keep hotel manager Mr. Moseby (Phill Lewis) busy trying to keep everything running smoothly.
Zack and Cody ran for 87 episodes and three seasons on the Disney Channel. Though young viewers may have been upset that the series was coming to an end, The Suite Life on Deck was all ready to take its place. Most of the characters moved to life on the S.S. Tipton cruise ship and headed out to sea. New performers include Erin Cardillo, Matthew Timmons, and Debby Ryan.
