Differences from the Book

  • The episode gives a bit of history behind the ghost dogs; they used to be robbers hiding from the law, but they were attacked by dogs and accidentally switched bodies with them before they died . The robbers now haunt the woods looking for humans to switch bodies with them.
  • In the episode, Cooper and Fergie are turned back to normal, but Cooper's older brother Mickey is mistakenly transformed into a chipmunk. In the book, Cooper and Fergie are the ones that switch bodies with chipmunks.
  • In the episode, the Changing Room is called the Changing Tree.


  • Blair Slater (Cooper Holmes) played Daniel O'Dell in Season 3's Night of the Living Dummy III.
  • Paul Miller (Mr. Holmes) played Dr. Harold Deep in Season 4's Deep Trouble.
  • Goofs: The small twig in Margaret's hair disappears and reappears randomly, after she and Cooper are pushed into the cave in the ground.
