Body swap appearances in media
Body swaps have been a common storytelling device in fiction media. Books such as Vice Versa (1882) and Freaky Friday (1972) 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.[a]
The list focuses mainly on exchanges between two beings, thus it forgoes similar phenomena of body hopping, spirit possession, transmigration, avatars, unless the target being's mind is conversely placed in the source's body. It also excludes age transformations as with the movie Big or 17 Again that are sometimes considered body swaps by the media; identity/role swaps, which are typically done between twins, clones, look-alikes, and doppelgängers; and characters with multiple personalities.
