Recap / Phineas And Ferb The Magnificent Few

Doofenshmirtz uses mind controlled termites to devour all the wood in the tri-state area, thus making a boom for his aluminum siding business.

In the course of the wood eating rampage, the termites destroy a farm, causing the cows to stampede to the city. Fortunately, Phineas and Ferb are there, and decide stopping the stampede is what they are going to do today.

This episode is also the first appearance of Vanessa, Doofenshmirtz's daughter.


  • Mid-Battle Tea Break: Or Mid-stampede tea break.
  • Mind-Control Device: Doofenshmirtz made loads of small helmets that could fit on the termites.
  • Second Episode Introduction: Vanessa's first appearance, and Doofenshmirtz's first self-destruct button.
  • Soft Water: Well specifically soft waterslides, that catch the cows that fall of a cliff.
  • Wham Line: Vanessa seems like a generic, perpetually bored assistant for this episode only. Then, after Perry activates the self-destruct, she tells Doofenshmirtz, "This is the worst 'Bring Your Daughter to Work Day' ever."
  • What an Idiot!: invokedVanessa really calls out how stupidly her dad made the death trap, when Doofenshmirtz himself isn't calling out his own screw-ups.
