  • This second season of "Brandy and Mr. Whiskers" just keeps getting better! ^_^

    9.1
    This episode was very funny and had me laughing the whole way through! In "Auntie Dote", I enjoyed watching Brandy and Whiskers compete to win the "auntie's" love... only to come back to the realization that she loved niether one of them! She was hired by them! HAHA! "Curses" was very funny, too! I liked the part where Whiskers found a "square ball" and thought he had found a good deal! It tuns out neither Brandy, nor Whiskers found a good deal in this story! In the end, we find that Mr. Whiskers is stupid enough to "out-curse" a curse! ^_^ THAT was interesting to see.

  • A strong recovery after a few near-duds.

    9.0
    After the very pedestrian 'Pet Peeves', the good 'What Price Dignity?! (Cheap!)', the missed oportunity 'You've Got Snail', the good 'The Magic Hour', the fairly weak 'Net of Lies' and the good 'Dog Play Afternoon' (a series of poor episodes paired with a just 'good' episode), 'Auntie Dote/Curses!' is a nice rebound; they are both great episodes that I hadn't seen since 'Better Off Wet/Loathe Triangle'.



    'Auntie Dote'--Brandy and Whiskers abuse the help of a seeming sweet clean servicing anteater.



    At a glance, it looked as if this was going to be a 'Brandy and Mr. Whiskers' themed episode of the Teen Titans ep "Mother Mae-Eye" (regarded by many as a poor episode of that show), but I'm happy that wasn't the case.



    Auntie Marla proved herself to be a deep character; there is more to her than meets the eye (cue Transformers theme). While she appears kindly, we get a hint at the ending (where she says she was working for a price, not out of love) through the pie she left out to cool on the table. Brandy and Whiskers thought was for them and proceeded to fight over it, but in truth was for her nephew. She's no Mary Poppins, that's for sure.



    I liked Brandy and Whiskers' constant vies for her affections, through the constant 'syrup in the pants', the fancy outfits and the paint fight reference from 'Jungle Makeover'. All was for naught, though.



    I know that the message is 'Don't abuse others'. That, I know, is a good message, taking advantage of someone's good nature is a bad thing and can come back later on.



    Despite the somewhat slow start, I will finish by saying it is a strong episode.



    'Curses!'--Brandy buys a cursed amulet from Gaspar's close-out sale, which she regrets.



    It manages to stay on par with 'Auntie Dote' as a solid episode.



    The humor was a definite asset in this episode. All the different curses that Brandy and Whiskers had to avoid and the fact the curse even had a sense of humor made it a very funny episode.



    I felt the pacing was good and I thought that Kaley Cuoco and Charlie Adler did a bang-up job with the emotions Brandy and Whiskers had to have been feeling.



    If there were any flaws, I thought the shot of Brandy with a photo-realistic bloodhound's head can be seen as a little creepy. The secondary characters, namely Gaspar, Margo, Lola and Ed also could have had some more extensive roles, but I guess that is simply the limits placed on the 11-minute timeframe.



    All things considered, 'Auntie Dote/Curses!' are a superb pair of episodes that I would encourage viewers, both newcomers and veterans of Brandy and Mr. Whiskers to see; they are worthy additions in the show as a whole, with great humor and strong messages in both.



    'Well, how about that? Boy, we really should have read the whole thing. Or at least, looked at the pictures.'
