  • Brandy & Mr. Whiskers delivers on comedy and great dialogue once again!

    7.0
    What can I say about such an original and hilarious series? This particular episode had me laughing so hard and so often...I don't think I could pinpoint a specific moment that I loved the most. I think the best part of the "Lack of Brains Vs. Brawn" Episode was when Mr. Whiskers tried to "outsmart" the Ape. Then, the Ape did one over on the poor bunny by showing his intellectual prowess! Hilariously unexpected! I am really impressed by this series, really I am.



    You don't really see such originality and knack for comedic timing in a series made specifically for kids. It's very bold, I think. I also liked the "No Sleep Over" Episode, although I felt it was more of a recycle from some other Disney shows, like Even Stevens.



    All in all, I give this particular episode a "7".moreless

    Lack of Brains vs brawns was a very intertaining episode that allowed me to see some great character development in Whiskers and Brandy's characters. Brandy shows that she really was insecure about her popularity status and that she just wanted to be accepted and to make some friends. However I feel she did the wrong approach to do it by dodging Whiskers and showing off, as well as bragging about herself. This shows a little more about Brandy's personality and makes you wonder of how many friends she had back home with the Harringtons.



    I also enjoyed the fact that Whisker's character involved himself in a real life problem with bullies and that he tried everything within his power to stay away from, and befriend Lester until they failed and he decided to stand up to Lester. His idea's were all pretty funny that got a good laugh out of me when it blew up in his face and Lester used him as a back scratcher than shot him back to the treehouse. I also believe that Lester was a very entertaining villain and that it was a unique twist that he knew about chess and the more advanced moves in the game that even the chess master has a hard time pulling off.



    This episode was really unique and was one of the better episodes in the first season.





    The nosleep over was the better of the two episodes since it involved mostly about my favorite character Brandy. It was sad however to see her kick Whiskers out with out trying harder to explain what the party was really about. This episode was not perfect and many of the jokes got a good laugh out of me including the turtle that passed out from exhaustion when crashing into Whiskers and Ed. Another memorible scene was when Whiskers exhaled out into the air and the flew burst into flames which made me laugh quite a bit and still does everytime I see it.



    Some of the jokes however were not that funny like the helecopter incident since the motor is supposed to be loud enough that Brandy could hear it yet she did not believe Whiskers since she thought he was pulling off another prank. The pranks were original like the white chilly pepper and the snake in the present, others not so much.



    In closing these two episodes are one of the better in the season and many of the fans should enjoy these episodes.moreless
