"Flip Flopped" was the tenth episode of season 2 and the final episode of Shorty McShorts' Shorts. It features adults in kids' bodies and kids in adults' bodies.


Andy, a married "man", and his “wife”, Taffy, are looking through the mail. Duke, their son, accidentally flies a remote-controlled toy airplane into Taffy.

Taffy asks, "Duke, what did I say about flying toys in the house?"

Duke says, "Sorry, mom."

Taffy tells him that one more thing, and he'll get a time-out. Andy is wearing a cloth business suit. Taffy is wearing dark green plaid pants, a matching-colored top, and dress shoes. Duke is wearing shorts, a red hoodie, and an orange shirt with a kids face on it. Danielle is wearing a white shirt with a flower on it, capris, tennis shoes and a vest. Taffy finds an invitation to the Codys' anniversary party (which, at first, Danielle thinks it’s from Jenny, while Duke thinks it is a paintball party invitation from Tommy) and exclaims, "Oh, I can finally wear that cute red dress."

She then says she needs to find a sitter. Danielle asks if she and Duke can watch themselves. Andy asks what they would do if: they smell gas, if there is a knock on the door by a persistent stranger, and if there is a fire.

Duke says, “Run for your life!!" twice.

Danielle says, "Don't be silly, Duke. We get out of the house as quickly as possible, and then call the police" for the first question's answer." Under no circumstances open the door, and then call the police" for the second answer.

Duke got the fire extinguisher for the final answer.

Andy says, "Danielle, you're in charge," much to her excitement.

At the party, Mr. Cody is gloating about his success.

Andy says, "Right", but then has a vision of Duke playing with a rusty and potentially dangerous-looking flashlight and tells Danielle the description (much to her lack of interest). He plays with it. Then in a flash the house blows up. Andy, alarmed, goes home on foot.

Taffy is present to Mrs. Cody's idea of sending her kids to summer camp. Taffy also has a vision that Duke is stair surfing with her best silver platter. He crashes into her dish cabinet, then the house spontaneously blows up, possibly due to a combination of dust and a friction spark.

Scared beyond reason, Taffy is in her car saying, "Mommy's on her way!” A baby is seen driving a car in front of her.

At the house, Duke and Danielle are having a good time. Then a squirrel bangs an acorn on the trash can. They freak out and set up a booby trap.

Andy arrives first, and stumbles upon the booby trap. He trips on the remote controllers, activating the toy planes and is bitten by the toy dinosaur. The planes shoot acorns/bullets at him and chase him down. He trips over a rope which pulls a bucket loose, that pulls the rope, causing a gorilla costume to fall onto him. Duke and Danielle discuss what to do. Andy is still fearful, running even as the planes have stopped firing upon him.

Taffy arrives, assuming it's worse than she thought. She parks her car and approaches Andy, saying, "Get away from my kids!"

Andy asks, "Honey?" He had no idea Taffy left for the same reason he did.

Unfortunately for Andy, Taffy has no idea he is in front of her. She believes he is an ill-intentioned person that is trying to invade their house and will hurt the kids.

From Andy’s point of view, we observe what he perceives: With her fists raised, Taffy struts towards him and angrily growls, "You no-good...!"

After closing the distance between her and Andy, Taffy hurdles her right fist at Andy’s face. The force of the impact presumably snapping his head back, causing him to see stars and perceive bird chips. In a blind fit of maternal rage, she mistakenly proceeds to beat him up, in an off-screen beatdown. Duke watches with amusement and Danielle repeatedly flinches, as pieces of the gorilla suit fly into and out of frame. Andy’s pained grunts can be perceived, along with Taffy commanding him to, “Take that!”

After Taffy has sent him to the ground, Andy pleads, "No more, I beg of you." Taffy realizes her mistake, but when she tries to help Andy, the police arrive and arrest them both, because the kids called them.

Duke apologizes to Andy, but brights it up by saying, "But I called the police!". Andy says, "Yeah, Duke, I know." The police drive off. Duke finally asks, "Maybe we should call a babysitter?" The squirrel throws an acorn at him, causing him to scream, "Ah! Run for...!!" But the rest is cut off by the credits.


  • This is the last Shorty McShort's Short in the series.
    • Many believe that this short was the reason the series was cancelled, due to controversy involving very young children, who are 12 years of age or less, being depicted as biological parents, which—due to its very implications—is deemed illegal. Further to that extant, Disney Channel consequently removed all suggestions of the show from their website, not having anything to do with the show again, leaving it abandoned ever since.
