Some years ago, I watched a series on Swedish television. I remember the show was NOT Swedish, but from the UK (maybe USA?).

I only remember one episode specifically and I can't get it out of my head.

It was a show about kids/teens and science. The episode I remember has a science person (not sure if it was a teen or adult) create a machine that can suck peoples' brains out with a tube and launch the brain (in this case, into an aquarium).

I remember it showing two perspectives. One perspective was from two brains that got launched and somehow ended up outside. They could talk and move (by bouncing around), and it was a girl and a boy. The other perspective was the science person using their bodies and turning them into remote controlled people through special hats.

I remember it ending with the a show and tell, where two kids had used the machine on their friend and put his brain in a jar and they showed the remote controlled body as a presentation.

I found this TV show, Round the Twist. Series 3 episode 8, "Brainless" matches pretty well with your description.

Bronson and Anthony's science project goes spectacularly wrong, sucking Pete and Linda's brains right out of their heads. With their brainless bodies running away, trying to reunite them with their brains isn't easy, especially when James and his friends start to interfere. Linda falls for Anthony after he reads from the Viking Book of Love.

This episode is available on YouTube :

    Just the concept. I was not brave enough to try the video.

    Thank you so much! Glad to know my childhood feeling of horror and dread watching this is still around. Watched all of it and feel sick. Wow.

    Round the Twist was an Australian show, of course. Mar 22, 2018 at 18:39
