Along with Disney Channel mainstays The Cheetah Girls, Chris Brown appeared on an episode of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody back in 2008. However, this episode is not available with the rest of the series on Disney+.

Over the show’s several seasons, its guest stars included Victoria Justice, Jaden Smith, Jesse McCartney, Zac Efron, Selena Gomez, and Kay Panabaker.
