  • In this case, nerve-wracking means a SCARY episode.

    8.8
    I know what you are all wondering, its that my classsification for the episode is "Nerve-wracking" even if mostly people use it for most disliked episodes.



    Well, in my case, this episode wasn't bad, in fact it was so scary that I almost fainted when I saw Ed "in a brain" eaten by the pirahnas.



    In "The Curse of the Vampire Bat", a new guy comes to the rainforest, and just like "Bunny on my Back" Whiskers is right that there is something wrong with the creature, it was all to predictable. It's a good thing that the vampire hasn't sucked their blood! This episode wasn't scary for me.



    But, "The Monkey's Paw" was scary. It also has that same 'Wish for it but there is a price', which we have seen in The Fairly Oddparents [Genie Meanie Minie Moe], The Simpsons [Every Treehouse of Horror] Spongebob Squarepants [You Wish] and the Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy [Wishbones] & [Dumb Wish].

    Anyway, when Whiskers takes the monkey's paw from the temple that looked like the one in "Lame Boy" and "On Whiskers, on Lola, on Cheryl, on Meryl". So, Ed tells them about the monkey's paw and he was right.

    I felt sorry that Brandy never got back to Florida and that Ed was eaten by the pirahnas. It's a good thing Wihskers saved them all by forgetting that this ever happened.



    But I was sad I never got to see Lola with hands, maybe I wasn't meant to see them!moreless

    • Won the "Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation" by Rossen Varbanov (Storyboard Artist) for 'The Monkey's Paw' at the 32nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards on May 15, 2005.

    • Tom Kenny plays another Vlad in the show called Xiaolin Showdown.

    • First Brandy & Mr. Whiskers episode to air during the new Magnet-Tude on Friday instead of the usual Saturday. It was moved to Friday starting at 4:00-6:00 on October 16, 2004 from that point on.

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • The episode 'The Monkey's Paw' is a reference to a 1902 short story by the same name, which even had a similar plot to the episode.

    • In the episode 'The Curse of the Vampire Bat' there was a character named Vlad. This may be a reference to "Vlad the Impaler" who is a very violent historic figure. His history gave Bram Stoker the inspiration for the creation of "Dracula."

      There is also a half-ghost character named Vlad from the Danny Phantom series, in which he is the main arch-villain of that show, though he does look similar to a vampire while he is in his ghost form.

    • Brandy made the same wish as Squidward from the 'You Wish' episode of SpongeBob Squarepants, but only on the alternate ending.
