List of Hannah Montana episodes

The third season of American Disney Channel teen sitcom Hannah Montana aired from November 2, 2008 until March 14, 2010. Filming for the season started a day after the 2008 Teen Choice Awards.[1] Season 3 of Hannah Montana focuses more on how the characters grow up than the previous seasons. Hannah has grown up into a new look. Different from the previous two seasons, she has shorter hair and an untraditional style which includes a lot of zebra print and unique boots. Also, Oliver and Lilly start dating starting from the episode "What I Don't Like About You". Later, Lilly moves in with the Stewarts. At the end of the season the Stewarts and Lilly move from Malibu while Oliver prepares to go on tour with a band. This is the last season to be broadcast in Standard Definition.

Opening sequence[edit]

For season three, the opening credits changed dramatically. The names appear on a scrolling marquee as you would see on a theater. The sequence then changes to full-screen episode clips, in which both season 2 and season 3 episodes clips are included. The new version of the song "The Best of Both Worlds" was performed at the Season 3 concert, and clips of that were added to the theme song as well. The creators' names appear in the second to last clip. A new version of the switch from Miley to Hannah is featured in the middle of the theme song and the second scene where cut, which is same as season 1 & 2 as Miley admires a hug between her and her dad in a clip of Hannah Montana.

Casting[edit]

The main cast of season 3 remained the same as the previous season. Hayley Chase, Romi Dames, David Koechner, and Cody Linley all reprised their roles as Joannie, Traci Van Horn, Uncle Earl, and Jake Ryan in at least one episode. Recurring character from the second season Mikayla, played by Selena Gomez did not make an appearance in any episode of this season. Also, Roxy Roker, played by Frances Callier, was omitted despite an episode in season 2 emphasizing her importance to Miley/Hannah after working for the president and a major part in the season 2 finale, "We're All on This Date Together". Aunt Dolly, played by Dolly Parton, also makes no appearances in this season. This is the final season with Mitchel Musso as a regular cast member.

Music[edit]

The new version of "The Best of Both Worlds" was used both for the movie as well as for the opening sequence, and was sung at the Hannah Montana season 3 concert in 2008. This version is extended to 59 seconds. The full version is featured on the Hannah Montana: The Movie soundtrack but is not featured on the Hannah Montana 3 soundtrack.[2]

Episodes[edit]

Hannah Montana Season 3 started on November 2, 2008 as part of Disney Channel's "New in November", celebrating Hannah Montana's third season premiere. Two specials were created for the season. The first is a 50-minute special starring Cody Linley as Jake Ryan called "He Could Be the One" which was first broadcast July 5, 2009. The second one is a crossover episode, "Super(stitious) Girl", which was first broadcast July 17, 2009 as part of Wizards on Deck with Hannah Montana.

"Uptight (Oliver's Alright)", the 23rd episode of the season, used elements of an unaired season 2 episode, "No Sugar, Sugar". "No Sugar, Sugar" had been intended as the season 2 finale, but was withdrawn from the airing schedule after complaints from parents who saw an on-demand version of the episode.[3] Parts of the episode were subsequently re-written and re-filmed and the modified version, which raises the issue of Type 1 diabetes, aired on September 20, 2009.

While in her cabin on the SS Tipton, Hannah loses the anklet that her mother gave her before she died. Lola (Lilly) helps her to try to find it, but with no luck. Finally, a maid shows the anklet to Mr. Moseby, but London takes it, seeing it as valuable. When Hannah and Lola find that London has it, Hannah tries to get London to give it back to her. London doesn't seem to take what Hannah says until Hannah tells her that the anklet has fake diamonds. Upon hearing this, London freaks out and inadvertently throws the anklet overboard. Hannah is depressed and wonders if anything else bad could happen: it does. A storm blows her wig away and her hair dye turns her hair green instead of blonde, a rat appears on her head, and a mirror breaks. Even Hannah's rehearsal goes poorly, so she tells Cody Martin and Bailey Pickett that her concert is canceled. Miley believes the anklet is the only thing that will help her, but her father Robby tells her that the spirit of her mother is in her heart, too. He tells Miley that he always has a back-up wig and gives it to her. Hannah then tells Cody and Bailey the concert is back on and that they are invited to the after-party. Bailey asks Cody if that was his plan and Cody talks about a good relationship needing honesty, but lies by saying yes it was his plan. Hannah's Hawaii concert goes ahead, and all is well.

Meanwhile, back in at Miley's house in Malibu, a package arrives addressed to Robby. Jackson and Oliver are desperate to open it, but without tearing the box so that Robby will never find out. They ask for Rico's help to open the package, and he cleverly opens it without tearing the box. The package turns out to be a bounce house. It inflates itself, getting the boys stuck to the window for quite some time, but Rico eventually deflates it with his fingernail.

Special guest stars: Dylan Sprouse as Zack Martin, Cole Sprouse as Cody Martin, Brenda Song as London Tipton, Debby Ryan as Bailey Pickett and Phill Lewis as Mr. Moseby, from The Suite Life on Deck

Lilly is invited to stay at the Stewart's house when her mom gets a job in Atlanta. Miley is at first happy that Lilly will be staying, as she sings "Roomies" to a conga dance with her, but gets annoyed quite quickly. This is due to many things. One is that Lilly is a restless sleeper, and another is that she talks on the phone with Oliver during the night when Miley is trying to sleep. The last thing is that her hamster runs on a squeaky wheel, slurps up water, urinates, then repeats this process during the course of the night. The next morning, Miley tells her dad that she doesn't like the sleeping arrangements while Lilly is supposedly at the beach, but Lilly hears this, as she came back to get her sunscreen. Sadly, Lilly moves to her dad's apartment, which is small and has only one room. Miley visits her, and tells her that she only said that because she was cranky, and the girls make up.
