** The episode "Holiday" has Daniel Jackson and a dying old man named Machello swap bodies in a GrandTheftMe, while Jack O'Neill and Teal'c exchange bodies by accident in a more traditional Freaky Friday Flip. Unlike most versions of this trope, the actors totally nailed the impression of the other character. Teal'c-in-O'Neill and O'Neill-in-Teal'c are so obviously who they're supposed to be that it works beautifully, and is utterly hysterical - it's blatantly obvious that after having had to play TheStoic that is Teal'c for several seasons, Christopher Judge was having a lot of fun playing O'Neill.

* Played with on ''TheYoungOnes'', in a scene where the lads' ''actors'' are switched, trading costumes and personas. No reason is given for why each of the four characters looks different -- it's that kind of show -- and none of them actually ''notices'' the change, aside from Neil's remark that he's not feeling himself.

* Creator/RobertLouisStevenson's bookends cause this, in the ''{{Warehouse 13}}'' episode "Merge With Caution". First to a thief and a security guard, then Myka and Pete. Then the pairs merge into one that keeps switching. Then the first pair [[{{Squick}} explode]]. Thankfully, Myka and Pete prevent this last.

* Played with on ''Series/WorldsDumbest'' when a clip features a foul-mouthed old woman -- they act like she switched bodies with John Enos.

* Indeed. they used it in one episode of ''Series/Jessie'', where, due to an ancient artifact sent to Ravi, Emma and Luke, Jessie and Zuri, and in the end, Jessie and Mrs. Kipling swapped bodies. Main/{{HilarityEnsues}}

* Used in a ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' episode. Curiously, after the Blue and Pink Rangers switch bodies, the normally glasses-bound Blue Ranger, logic not withstanding, still needs them in his new body. Much like the ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' example below, the ramifications of [[GenderBender being stuck in a body of the opposite gender]] were barely touched. Nor was the fact that both characters should have been adjusting to temporarily having different powers.

* The ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' episode "Who Are You?", a typical example of the similarity between Freaky Friday Flip and NotHimself, due to characters in one another's bodies acting in atypical, often outrageous ways. It includes a scene in which Faith, now in Buffy's body, takes a long bath and [[FoeYay explores her new anatomy.]] And then a scene in which Faith enacts a most unusual version RageAgainstTheReflection, pummeling and shouting at her own body.

* In the ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'' episode "Quinceañera", Alex switches bodies with her mom to avoid her titular 15th birthday party. Which is okay with Theresa, who never got a Quinceañera and always wanted one.
** Twice: In the episode mentioned above, and the episode titled "Family Games Night", where Alex switches with Harper, and the body switching spell ends up going wrong in the end.
