He also holds the world record for the longest amount of time hopping on a pogo stick, a feat which earned him ,000."Me and Mr. After experiencing a flashforward in which he is an old man and still working at Rico's, Jackson's college ambition is reenergized.
In the episode "Judge Me Tender", he gets a traffic ticket and Robby Ray makes him pay for the ticket and he states he is not working at Rico's anymore so he has to clean up their upstairs attic. He enjoys playing basketball until learning his father only lets him win so he will feel happy.
When Jackson first attended school in California he was made fun of because of his accent, cowboy hat, boots, and large belt buckle with shining bright lights which he wore to school. Also he has a limited amount of friends, only showing two: Cooper & Thor.
Unlike his father and sister, Jackson seems to have no musical talent.
Even his own mother admitted that he sings like "a regular tone deaf walrus." During Miley's nightmare in "I Am Hannah, Hear Me Croak" he becomes a rock-star sensation named Bucky Kentucky. In "Debt It Be" he plays an old woman at a rest home, in "You Give Lunch a Bad Name" he plays a pot-bellied health inspector, and in "Knock Knock Knockin' on Jackson's Head" he gives a believable performance of having suffered amnesia.
He takes pride in his hair, and his shampoo collection.
Whenever one of Hannah's song becomes a hit, instead of attributing it to the singer, he, jokingly, takes the credit himself.
Jackson is a very regular character in Hannah Montana.
In the episode "He Could Be the One", Jackson does not take part in the actual story, but appears as a third-person omniscient narrator, although even in this role he appears in character.
Jackson and Miley constantly bicker and compete for their father's approval.
Miley often finds Jackson's antics disgusting and Jackson thinks Miley is too full of herself sometimes.
He moved to Malibu, California with his father Robby and sister Miley after the death of his mother. Jackson is a mediocre high school student, and has a rough time starting college in the third season. Jackson is often seen barefoot or wearing flip-flops.
In an off-handed remark in "Song Sung Bad," Jackson implausibly suggests the reason for this move involved an embarrassing incident with a Tennessean girlfriend. It is also revealed in the episode "Schooly Bully" that Jackson's bare feet are ticklish.
Yet on a deeper level, both Miley and Jackson privately express love and appreciation for each other like a normal brother-sister relationship.
