    the part where whiskers glues the rabbit ears on lola was wacky and everybody mistakes whiskers as lola and lola as whiskers. over all a great episode and a must watch for all you fans who enjoyed the movie "Freaky Friday"moreless
  • The Worst Episode of 1 of My Favourite Shows

    3.1
    Brandy and Mr.Whiskers go to Dr.Phyliss a Relationship Doctor and Tries to Cure Them by Making Them Be each Other Which Good News for Whiskers But No for Brandy and Me.The Exsitance of my Brain Some of the Worst Episode in history was Just Cruddy Where Whisker's Brian Leaves Him
  • This episode wasnt the best but IMO, it wasnt the worst either. Freaky Tuesday had a happy ending so it was saved.

    7.0
    Freaky Tuesday wasnt the best segment in the series but I didn't think it was as bad as some people made it out to be. Sorry if I offend your feelings. I believe Brandy was entirely abused in the episode by everyone and I was happy when she and Mr. Whiskers went back to normal. The flaw with the episode was Brandy farting. Now, when boys fart its funny but when girls do it, its just wrong. And the characters were dumb especially Margo. Only Ed and Brandy were good charatcers in the episode.



    The Brain of My Existence was IMO, not as good as Freaky Tuesday but I liked it. Mr. Whiskers climbing down the steps was character development in th eepisode. I feel Ed was so good in this episode with his lines and I feel as much as this episode was not good for many people, I seemed to like it.moreless
  • Sorry, guys. You've made better episodes.

    I've been trying to record the different episodes of Brandy and Mr. Whiskers whenever I see either a new episode or one I hadn't seen before. But 'Freaky Tuesday/The Brain of My Existance' is a pair of episodes I can just ignore.



    'Freaky Tuesday'--Setup to act like a spoof of Freaky Friday, the movie which was recently remade in 2003, this episode was about Brandy and Whiskers seeing a relationship counselor about how they can't seem to get along and she suggests that they roleplay.



    A lot of this short I just did not enjoy chiefly because the writing in this episode made it hard to decipher wheter Brandy and Whiskers truly did swap bodies or Brandy was only dreaming. It was like 2003's Anger Management all over again. Mainly because not only do Whiskers and their friends go along with the roleplay, but other minor characters...appear to go along with it as well. Unless it's another case of the characters 'just not paying attention to details' (which is something against some characters' natures, Lola and Ed being primary examples, as they have proven to be keen on details in earlier episodes), something tells me Whiskers is not high enough on the social ladder to get the entire Amazon to play along.



    Some other things that irked me included that to go along with the ruse, someone...must have undressed Brandy in her sleep (!!!) (I'm sure that's not a good message to send the kids!).



    Another part was the humor. As I said before, the writing made it confusing. Brandy was not buying that she was actually Whiskers, and Whiskers was now acting like her in every way. When she did go along with it, it didn't improve. Another thing was that before Whiskers cracks, Brandy makes a fart joke, which I thought was much more odd than funny. That type of humor only seems funny if the character making it is a guy. Girls don't strike me as funny in that way (much like how nobody appears to like a movie like 'The Sweetest Thing'), and it seems strange when a girl does it for comedic value.



    This episode did have a few good lines, but not enough to make it worthwhile.



    'The Brain of My Existance'--Whiskers fell out of the tree one too many times, and his brain has had it with not being listened to and leaves. As time passes, Brandy tries to talk his brain into returning to Whiskers.



    Well...it was not the best episode either, but a lot better than 'Freaky Tuesday'. I enjoyed seeing Brandy studying French, which gave it some intellectual value, but the episode was still really strange. Someone's brain just deciding to leave their body is a little eerie, and renting out your head to insects doesn't help. Regardless, Brandy did everything possible to ensure they'd be reunited, which I enjoyed.



    One factor I knew I didn't like was the fact this episode's central focus was not on our leads, but Murray, Whiskers' brain. A body part with a Yiddish-sounding voice, he doesn't appear to have much in terms of personality. I don't tend to like episodes based around characters other than the leads; often, they're not strong enough to be the central focus. He is best left as a minor character (like how he explained how he framed Brandy for the thefts in 'Paw and Order'). Then again, I was willing to buy Whiskers getting a second (and third) head in 'Two Heads Are Not Better Than One'...go figure.



    I did enjoy some parts in the episode, namely the nightclub sequence, and Brandy helping Whiskers in any way she could, and a few solid lines here and there. Them choosing against making Brandy's brain a character helped as well. It was by far the superior episode.



    'Freaky Tuesday/The Brain of My Existance' would not be a pair of episodes I would initate someone into the series with. They struck me as very strange, but not in a good way. They're episodes I can sit down and actually watch, but I will agree that 'Freaky Tuesday' currently stands as the series' worst episode. There are better episodes in the series.
