Body swap appearances in media

Body swaps have been a common storytelling device in fiction media. Books such as Vice Versa (1882)[1] and Freaky Friday (1972)[2] have inspired a number of adaptation films as well as television shows, some of which have used derivatives of Freaky Friday for its episode titles. In 2013, Disney Channel held a Freaky Freakend with seven shows that featured body-swapping episodes.[note 1]

The list focuses mainly on exchanges between two beings, thus it forgoes similar phenomena of body hopping, spirit possession, transmigration,[3] avatars and even brain transplants, unless the target being's mind is conversely placed in the source's body.[4] It also excludes age transformations as with the movie Big or 17 Again that are sometimes considered body swaps by the media,[4][5][6] and role swaps between twins, clones, look-alikes, doppelgängers and multiple personalities.
