"Freaky Fry-day" is the ninth comic issue, which was released 22 May, 2002 in the US.

The Story

Act I

At the Mid-Galaxy Spaceship and Robot Bikini Wash Co. Bender and the Planet Express Ship get cleaned, while Leela has her hair done and Fry does some last minute shopping for a Great Nephew's Day gift for the Professor. The necklaces that Fry buys cause them to switch bodies during the night. The staff of Planet Express take Fry in Professor (FiP) to Taco Bellevue Hospital to see if they can figure out why he thinks he's Fry. Meanwhile, Professor in Fry (PiF) arrives at work, changes into his lab coat and slippers, then decides to head off and attack Wernstrom. At the hospital, the doctor determines that FiP is insane.

Act II

PiF spends some time at a bar and hooks up with a woman. After a delivery, with Scruffy filling in for Fry, the crew determines that the Professor and Fry have swapped bodies. Zoidberg comes in to tell everyone that the doctor is going to perform a lobotomy on FiP. They head off to find PiF, who is at The Hip Joint. Wernstrom abducts PiF with help from his Chinese grad-students, but Bender uses his "Fryjac" to find them. The staff of Planet Express scares off the grad-students and rescue him. PiF signs out FiP and gives Bender the necklaces before the Professor and Fry switch back their bodies with a new invention.
