As you can tell by the title, this liveblog is going to be all about..Phineas and Ferb. ///// Awhile back, one troper said that someone should liveblog Phineas and Ferb. I will be that someone.
Yes I've seen this show before. A lot of it actually. But there's still like 10 or 15 episodes I have yet to see.
So go to youtube, break out your Phineas and Ferb Merchandise, put on Quirky Worky Song and Let's Watch...Phineas and Ferb.
See you soon for episode 1!
So the show begins as the titular brothers are hanging out in their backyard. Phineas asks Ferb what he wants to do today but he just shurgs. Oh and then we see they have a pet..platypus...named Perry. Cool. /// Phineas:I, for one am starting to get bored, and boredom is something of up with which I will not put! The first thing they're going to ask us when we get back to school is what did we do over summer?. I mean, no school for three months? Our lives should be a roller coaster! And I mean a GOOD Rollercoaste. Not like the one we rode at the state fair.
Then we get an amusing CMOF where we see the Rollercoaster they rode at the state fair.
Phineas realizes that's what they should do today: build a rollercoaster
Their Mother, Linda tells them shes going to store to pick up a few things.
Then we meet Candace, their sister. Alot of people of noted that she is bit....unlikable. While I do agree somewhat I don't really think she's completely unlikable. I mean, sure she can be a bit..annoying at times but I've heard she gets better.
Candace: I'm in charge, right? You did tell them I'm in charge. Linda: Relax Candace. No one has to be in charge Candace: But what if theirs an emergency? Linda:Like What? Candace: What if...a satellite falls out of orbit and crashes into the house?! Linda: If that happens your in charge
Heh. That was funny. Also at this point I'd like to point out Linda is Aunt Hilda and Candace is Sharpay \\ A few minutes later, Candace founds out that Phineas and Ferb are building a Rollercoaster so she runs off to tell Mom.
After that we meet...
Isabella: Isabella Hey, Phineas. Phineas: Hey, Isabella. Isabella: Whatcha doin'?
Ah, Isabella, the neighbor with a pretty obvious crush of Phineas. Phineas tells her he's building a Rollercoaster then she leaves.
Phineas: Hey, Where's Perry?
Ok this where things get...weird. We cut to Perry as he..stands up, puts on a Fedora and goes through a secret door on the side of the house.
As you can guess, Perry is really a secret agent. That's kinda of cool. So he heads to his Hideout where we meet his Boss, Major Monogram. Ok they don't tell us his name but we find out later so I'll call him that now.
Monogram informs him that Dr. Doofenshmirtz has bought "80% of the country's tin foil". Makes Sens to me. Agent P heads out.
We cut back to Candace as she is at the store talking to Mom.
Linda: It seems like we've had this conversation before. Candace: What do you mean? Linda: I seem to recall you telling me the boys were training monkeys to juggle bicycles. And when I came home, there was a stunning lack of monkeys. Candace: I still don't know how they cleaned it up so fast.
Heh. That was also funny. Candace informs Mom that Phineas and Ferb are building a Rollercoaster. She understandably doesn't believe her.
Then we abruptly cut to a factory.
Factory Manager: Aren't you a little young to be a roller coaster engineer? Phineas: Yes, yes I am. Manager: ...Well, I must say I'm very impressed. The forms all seem to be in order, although I've never seen them filled out in crayon before. So, if there's anything I can get you, anything at all... let me know.
Expect me to say "That Was Funny" alot.
So we cut(we sure to cut to things alot) Agent P as arrives at Doofenshmirtz Evil Inc.
'''Dr. Doofenshmirtz:I, Dr. Heiz Doofenshmirtz have covered the entire Eastern Sea Bord in Tin Foil! And when I put my giant Magnet next to my ingenious Magnetism Magnifier I will pull the east in westerly direction thereby reversing rotation of the earth! You may well as your self "Why would he do this? What could he possibly have to gain?" Why let me just answer that by saying... I haven't really worked out all the bugs yet.'''
This guy is officially both awesome and lame at the same time. Mainly Awesome.
Back at the store, Ferb puts up a poster for the Rollercoaster and Candace goes to show mom.
Kid 1: Phineas and Ferb, built a Rollercoaster? Think we get a discount if we bring the flier?
Kid 2: Maybe we better take it
As you would expect, Candace brings Mom over to the Poster to prove she isn't crazy but of course it's gone. Candace screams.
Linda: I see your point, Candace. No crazy person would scream at a post like that. I'll be in the dairy section if you want to come yell at some cheese or anything.
Back at their house, Phineas introduces the Coaster to kids. The Coaster is insanely huge and looks scary as shit. And the kids all raise their hands to go first.
The ride starts and it's...awesome.
Anyway, we cut back to Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated as Agent P escapes from his trap and starts fighting Doof. Doof starts up his Magnet thing and...it doesn't work. Instead, theirs a 2 ton ball of Tin Foil heading straight for them. He obviously didn't think this through.
Perry shuts off the Magnet thing, saving them. But the Tin Foil ball hits Doofenshmirtz.
Doofenshmirtz: CURSE YOU PERRY THE PLATYPUS!
The magnet attracts the Magnetism Magnifier, which sends a magnetic ray at the track under it, picking up the entire roller coaster.
Perry jumps inside the rollercoaster and the ensuing scene is awesome. The coaster goes off course and goes all over the place ...even France.
Then they end up in space. What.
At that moment, the coaster plummets to the Earth.
Cut back to the House as Linda and Candace arrive. Candace takes her to show that Phineas and Ferb aren't their. But of course they are. The Coaster landed in the tree? Without breaking? Or Injuring anyone Ok calm down. Remember the MST3K Mantra.
Isabella: So What are you gonna do Tomorrow? Phineas: Don't Know yet. Isabella: Maybe you could teach Perry some tricks. Phineas: Well he is a Platypus. They don't do much. Ferb: They're The Only Mammals to lay eggs.
Woah. Ferb Speaks...and with a British Accent. No Wonder he never talks. Also, thats kinda incorrect as according to Wikipedia, long and short nosed echidna also lay eggs.
Phineas: So, Ferb what do you wanna do tomorrow? There's a world of possibilities... Maybe we should make a list!
Then the coaster explodes.
Candace: Mom! Linda: Give it a rest, Candace!
Once again, that was funny.
So that was Rollercoaster. My final Verdict?
Cons: Not that many to tell you the truth. This episode still seems not all that great when I think about. For a Pilot it's good but it's not as good as some later episodes.
Pros: There are some very funny gags(As if you couldn't tell, The coaster itself lead to some entrain scenes, and Doofenshmirtz Just..Doofenshmirtz.
Final Score: 8.7
Next Episode: Lawn Gnome Beach Party Of Terror.
See You Soon!

Note: I already typed up my recap of the first few episodes prior to making this topic so expect episode 2 soon.
CHARACTER LIMIT EXCEEDEDI just watched episode one for the first time today. One of the reasons this show is awesome: Phineas' line "...up with which I will not put" is an in-joke referencing Winston Churchill, of all things.
Logged: The commanding officer is aboard. XO Pressley stands relieved.
dy/dxI'll watch this blog. Tip: While the show does have a lot of potential CMOF, it's best to be conservative with dishing them out.
edited 15th May '10 6:26:37 PM by Tangent128
Conversation is a contact sport.
Thinks for the tip. If any CMOF's from the shows CMOF page show up, I'll point them out.
Episode 2:Lawn Gnome Beach Party of Terror
Ok The Title alone caught my attention.
So the episode opens as Phineas and Ferb are in thier backyard listento the radio.
Radio DJ: This is Stanky Dog, coming to you on the hottest day of the summer. Unless you live at the beach, I say take it easy and do nothing today. Yup, just find yourself a shady tree and maybe an aquatic mammal of some sort, and just blow the whole day off.
Phineas: Come On Ferb. If we let a little heat stop us from having the best day ever, then the morning DJs Win
Ok now that was a TRUE CMOF.
So Phineas and Ferb decide to build a beach. Yay.
Phineas: Where's Perry?
Right On Cue!
Monogram:Good morning, Agent P. Lawn gnomes across the Tri-State Area are disappearing, leaving gardens unprotected from the evils of black magic. We suspect Doofenshmirtz. Get right on it!
Lawn Gnomes. I've always hated those little bastards. But this neither time nor the place.
A few minutes later, Candace heads out to the backyard to discovers that Phineas and Ferb have built a beach in the backyard. A huge one at that.
Then we meet 2 other characters, Candace's freinds Jenny and Stacy. No one cares about Jenny but Stacy...ya.
Anyway, cut back to Agent P as he arrives at Doofs lair disguised as a Lawn Gnome. He gets trapped in a cage.
Cut back to P & F's beach as we cut the very first song in the series
This one is called "Hit The Beach". It's alright. Nothing much to say about it.
Moving on, Candace heads over to talk to Jeremy but is hit on the head by a falling coconut. She falls on top of a surprised crab, who then carries her off. The crab happens to carry her over to the limbo contest.
Guy: So THAT'S how low you can go. I've been asking that question for generations
And I've been not answering.
Limbo Guy: By winning the limbo contest you are now officially crowned "Queen Wahini of the Beach"! All Hail Queen Wahini!
Then we get...another song.
This song is called "Back Yard Beach. It's sung by Ferb(In a Different Voice). And It's AWESOME!
Back in Doof's lair, Dr. Doofenshmirtz has finally located the right remote.
Dr. Doofenshmirtz: And now Perry the Platypus, you will finally understand my pain. Back in Gimelschtump in the days of my youth, the Doofenshmirtzes were a proud family. But those were lean times for my father, and our beloved lawn gnome was repossessed. Who would protect our ancient garden from witches, spells, and wood trolls? From a tender age, my father decided that it will be me. While the other kids played kick the schumptel and ate doonkelberries, I would stand for hours. All through the cold night, as the spitzenhounds howled... My only companion was the moon. And my neighbor Kenny. So, since my lawn gnome was taken from me, I will destroy every lawn gnome in the whole Tri-State Area!
I don't know what to say that. All I can say is that I totally get where's hes coming from. I hate Lawn Gnomes too(For a completely different reason).
Back at the beach, we meet another character, Buford. He's obviously the bully. And he's pretty funny as well.
So Phineas and a bunch of other people enter a surf a contest and some funny stuff happens.
Announcer:Let's go to the judges. Ten to the fifth power, infinity, and oh! It seems that Phineas Flynn's radical surfing has made judge number three re-think Einstein's Theory of Relativity! Cowabunga, laws of nature!
Ok now THAT'S a true CMOF.
Linda calls and tells Candace she's coming home. Of Course, Candace is enjoying herself and Doesn't want her to know about the Beach.
Back at the Perry subplot, something happens that causes a volcano to rise of the water. And it spouts Lawn Gnomes. What.
Candace goes to stop Linda from coming. She ends up telling her everything...in a CMOF.
Some crazy stuff happens in thew Doof subplot which cause all the water to disappear.
Phineas and Ferb shut down their beach and Linda is none the wiser.
They sit back and listen to the radio again .
Radio DJ:Stanky Dog here with a special shoutout to my two new pals, Phineas and Ferb, for hosting a beach party that was hot, hot, hot. And speaking of hot, slather on the sunscreen listeners, cause tomorrow's weather calls for another scorcher.
Ferb: With a slight chance of scattered lawn gnomes
Another Classic Ferb Line.
That didn't take very long. 2 Recaps in one day. That's gotta be some kind of record.
Cons: Not one to found.
Pros: Almost everything. Much better then episdoe 1. The song=kickass.
Next Episode:Flop Starz.
edited 15th May '10 9:35:17 PM by SpongebobSquarepants
Episode 3: Flop Starz
The episode begins with Phineas, Ferb, and Candace eating some breakfast while watching a commercial for some American Idol rip off. Some dude says there will be auditions held for The Next Super American Pop Teen Idol Star at the Googolplex Mall.
Candace is super excited and runs off to tell Stacy.
Phineas: That Pop Star stuff might be fun at first but then you'd be stuck in a dead end job. Too bad you can't just do it once and then move on.
Linda: Well what your talking about is One Hit Wonder
Phineas: A One Hit Wonder? What's that?
I'd tell but I'll let Linda explain it.
Linda: Well, a musical act goes to the top of the chart with a catchy tune and meaningless lyrics. Then they throw a big diva tantrum, lose their label, then face obscurity. Before they know it, their song is... elevator music. Years later, they have a reunion concert, and after that, they never sing again, and no one remembers them. Not that I would know anything about that.
Someone's Got Issues.
So Phineas and Ferb decide to become a One Hit Wonder. After a little scene of Candace trying on clothes...
Phineas: Hey, Where's Perry?
So Agent P meets with Monogram then leaves. That was short.
Candace and Stacy arrive at the audition/ After a little pep talk from Stacy, Jeremy(Some dude who Candace has a crush on) shows up.
Jeremy explains that he is not there to audition, but to hear the hot new band called "PFT".
Jeremy: The 100th Contestant gets to sing on stage with the band!
Gee, could the 100th contestant be...Candace?
Yes. Yes she is.
3 Guesses to who, PFT is. The first 2 don't count.
Phineas:Candace? Your the 100th Contestant? How serendipitous! This will be like a brother-sister thing. I'm assuming you've heard our single I mean who hasn't right? Here's the words. Don't worry if you get lost. The lyrics are meaningless anyway.
Yes, COMPLETELY Meaningless...
This song is called "Gitchee, Gitchee, Goo". It might be the most popular song in the series. It's an awesome song but some the lyrics are a bit...odd.
Phineas: Bow, Chicka, Bow-Wow!
Other People:That's what my baby says! Phineas: Mow-mow-mow! Other People: And my heart starts pumping! Phineas: Chicka-Chicka, Choo Wap! Other People: Never gonna stop! All: Gitchee Gitchee Goo means that I love you!
Hmmm....Bow Chicka Bow Wow...That sounds familiar. I'm sure it's nothing.
Anyway, Phineas cues up Candace. She is furious that the boys have beaten her to her dream of becoming a pop star and refuses to sing. She then threatens to tell mom and storms off the stage.
Joy Killer. Where were we?
Oh ya. Some dude called Ben Baxter talks to Phineas after the song.
Ben Baxter: Hi, I'm Ben Baxter, Huge-O Records! Why don't you come by my office in 1 hour and we can talk about your future!
Phineas: Future? Cool. He must be a physic.
Oh Phineas, so young and clueless.
Meanwhile, Candace drags her mom back to the audition stage and points to shadows behind a curtain and tells her mom it's them.
Dude: Ladies and Gentle Men, once again..Marty The Rabbit Boy and his musical blender!
Back in The Perry subplot, Agent P arrives at Doofs building where we hear the Doofenshmirtz Evil Inc jingle for the first time.
Perry shows up wearing some Goofy Glasses and Doof think it's his new temp.
Doofenshmirtz: You see in a few minutes, I will unleash an unprecedented reign of Tower upon the ENTIRE..Tri State Area
Anyway, Doof turns his building into a Giant Robot and goes around town.
Meanwhile, Candace sees a PFT poster on the side of the building and takes Mom outside to show it to her. As it turns out, Phineas was allowed to put it up on the building for free because it was scheduled for demolition. It gets torn down and Linda doesn't believe Candace.
Anyway, Phineas and Ferb are over at Huge-O Records as that Ben dude is talking to them.
Ben offers them a contract and part of it is a follow up single.
Phineas:Follow-up single?! Who do you think we are, some two-bit hacks who will keep writing you songs simply because you pay us obscene amounts of cash? Phineas and the Ferb-Tones are strictly a one-hit wonder. Good day to you, sir.
Hmmm, why does that sound familiar. ?
So They've got the Diva Tantrum down. And The Elevator music.
Ben Baxter: Who needs them? I've still got that video tape of their performance. We could do Live CDs, DV Ds, Podcast. Heck we could digitally recreate their images to make our own sitcom. "The Phineas and Ferb Show"! We can squeeze 20 years of entertainment out of this one video tape!
Wow. What an evil bastard.
Meanwhile, Doof sits down for a Deli Platter and offers Perry some Pepper. The Pepper makes the Robot Sneeze and they get blown out. The tape ends up in Perry's hands and Perry uses it to grab hold of a flagpole and save himself.
Doof lands on the top of a truck with a mattress on top . Unfortunately it is from the Amazing Folding Mattress Company, which then proceeds to fold up with him inside.
Then the robot crushes him.
Doofenshmirtz: CURSE YOU PERRY THE PLATYPUS!
Back at the mall, Marty the Rabbit Boy has just been announced as the winner.
Jeremy talks to Candace and tells her something that amounts to "Just Sing you stupid bitch"
Then Candace joins for the last verse of Gitchee, Gitchee, Goo.
Candace: That Was Great! I've been thinking of my brothers all wrong. They're not a nuisance. They're my ticket to= Phineas: Thanks you've been great! That's the last time were ever gonna sing that song. We're Retiring. Good Night!
Take THAT Candace!
Final Thought: Better then the first 2 episodes. The song is really awesome and it has some funny gags in it.
Next Episode:The Fast and the Phineas
See You Soon!
edited 16th May '10 3:25:12 PM by SpongebobSquarepants
Episode 4: The Fast And The Phineas
The episodes begins when Phineas and Ferb hanging out in the backyard when they hear the sound of cars on a race track. Which is next to their house...for some odd reason.
So Phineas and Ferb turn their Mom's Car into a Race Car. As usaul Candace shows up and runs off to tell Mom who playing bridge at Mrs. Garcia-Shapiro's house.
Candace pulls Mom out to show her the race car but Phineas pushes a button which causes the car to fly up in the air. Ok.
Phineas: Hey Ferb, Where's Perry?
It's about time.
Monogram tells Perry that Doofenshmirtz is hanging out in his blimp and Perry leaves. That was short.
Back at the race, Isabella reports in with the Fireside Girls, who will be the pit crew .
Isabella: Okay, girls. We're dealing with a 426 cubic inch, fully-blown V8, with hypo lifters, radical cam and a limited slip differential. Gretchen: Would that be electronically fuel injected?
Once again, that was funny.
During her search for Phineas and Ferb, Candace meets up with Jeremy. and pretends to know about racing to get close to him. Jeremy comments that Phineas is gonna be on TV. Candace runs off and calls Mom and tells her to turn on the TV.
Linda: Candace, this is a Dandruff Commercial. Is there something your trying to tell me?
If I say "That was Funny" one more time...
Announcer: And With the Race about to start, there's the Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated Blimp!
Agent P arrives in Doof's blimp and gets caught in a trap. Doofenshmirtz introduces his newest invention, the Deflate-inator. After a test firing at the track, he will deflate everything in the Tri-State Area, forcing people to come to him if they want something inflated. O...k.
After a scene of taken of Picture of Phineas using a camera stolen form some Photographer dude, Doof fires his Deflate-inator.
The ray hits a beach ball and It falls onto the windshield of one of the cars, setting off a chain-reaction of collisions and damage to the stadium.
This logically leads to..a song!
This next song is called "Go Phineas". It' not that much really. Just repetitions of "Go Phineas Go! Go Phineas!" Still a Decent song I guess.
Back in Doof's Blimp, his ray is amost fully charged. It's being powered by a rat..whatever.
Perry pulls out some cheese and shoots one into the doctor's pants with a crossbow. The rat gets into his pants and Perry escapes an activates the ray which bounces off a Mirror and hits the blimp.
Meanwhile, Candace heads back to Mrs Garcia-Shapiro's house an shows Mom the picture. . It's the wrong one. She turns on the TV to show Mom that Phineas and Ferb are in the race.
But of course..
Announcer: Oh No! A blimp is about to hit the broadcasting tower! Oh, the hum-.
Then he gets cut off. Oh and that Hu(Manity) line is a reference to the Hindenburg Disaster. Awesome.
Anyway, Doof steals Phineas's car and a chase scene ensues. The car goes through a car wash and Doof gets defeated by One of the rotating car wash brushes.
Candace takes Linda home to show her the race car which has ended up back in the garage. And washed too. Mom is happy about the car being washed and offers Phineas and Ferb some snacks as Candace jaw drops and Linda tells tells her to close her mouth.
Final Thought: While not as good as the last 2 episodes, this was a solid episode.
Next Episode: Lights, Candace, Action!
edited 17th May '10 7:42:24 PM by SpongebobSquarepants
Episode 5:Lights, Candace, Action!
The episode begins with Candace quoting lines from her favorite play, "The Princess Sensibilities".
She hears some noise coming from outside and she walks in on some monster movie Phineas and Ferb are filming.
Linda: Sorry I'm late. They're filming down the street
Candace: Filming? What are they filming?
Linda: A movie version of the play "The Princess Sensibilities"
That was convenient.
Phineas: Hey, Where's Perry?
Monogram:There's something very strange going on with Dr. Doofenshmirtz. He's been very quiet lately, a little too quiet! I want you to find out what's not going on and, uh.. put a... stop...to it. I suppose.
I don't know what to say to that. Moving on...
Later on, Candace talks the producer of the film to see if she can get a part. After she hears that the lead actress just quit, she recites a couple lines.
Producer: That's not bad. And you know your lines. I don't know. Candace:I'll do it for free! Producer: Your hired
Heh. People will hire anybody if they don't have to pay them.
Anyway, The producers introduces her to the directors of the film. Guess who they are.
Phineas: Hi Candace!
Candace: Phineas and Ferb? What are you doing here?
Phineas: We're directing the movie!
What A Shock.
Candace: Wait! Don't you think they're a little young to be big-budget movie directors? Producer: With 176 million hits, they could be in diapers for all I care.
I don't care If I say it too much: That is a true CMOF.
Next scene and Candace is wearing a monster mask. What.
Candace: Phineas, I don't remember any Monsters In The Princess Sensibilities
Phineas: We just finished the rewrites this morning!
Candace: The Curse Of The Princess Monster?!
I think this may be the the first ever In Universe Example of Adaptation Decay.
he producer then explains that at end of the movie, the curse is lifted and this could make her a star.
Meanwhile, Agent P arrives at Doofenshmirtz Evil Inc. After a funny Little scene, Doof says has given up evil to pursue cheese making.
Doofenshmirtz: Do You like Stinky Limburger? It's a Doofenshmirtz family recipe. It's not ready yet. It still had to age for 58 and a half years. But who's got that kinda of time? Which is why I created...The Age-accelerator!...inator!
Anyway, Next scene and Candace is wearing a fruit hat. Once Again:What.
Candace:Wow! Am I doing some tropical dance number? Phineas: We're trying to get some good camera angles for the chase scene, so we put the camera on a starving monkey.
I've been handing out CMOF's to often. I'll double check to see if this is a real CMOF. Hmmmm, Yes. Yes it is.
Phineas: Okay, that didn't work out. This time we will have the camera on Ferb. Take this sub sandwich. But be careful, Ferb hasn't eaten lunch yet. '
Ok I was wrong before. This entire episode is a CMOF.
After another funny scene, Ferb cleans up Candace's performance in the editing room. And now her head is replaced by that Candace's voice actor, Ashley Tisdale. Awesome.
Later, a sneak preview is shown to some kids, who are the target audience.
We cut back to Doof as he successfully ages his cheese and gives the cheese to Perry. When Doofenshmirtz comes back with crackers, Agent P eats the cheese in one mouthful.
He gets pissed of and trys to zap Perry.
Naturally, the ray hits the movies audience, turning them into old people. Like many old people, they hate the film and go home.
Doof puts the ray on it's highest setting and it turns him and Perry into old people. Perry rips his old skin, revealing that he wasn't growing old after all. And Doof stays the same and doesn't turn back. Bet you 5 bucks that he'll back fine in the next episode.
Meanwhile, Phineas tells Candace they put the film on their website and they watch it.
In it, they feature Candace, in a slowed down version of earlier when she yelled at them saying they ruin everything, followed by a globe on a string breaking into a ton of pieces.
That was the best movie I've ever seen.
Phineas: Enjoy it while it lasts Candace. Fame is fleeting.
Ferb: But The Internet is forever
That's True. Very True.
Final Thoughts: This might be the best episode in the sereis so far. Like I said before, the entire thing is a CMOF. My only problem? No Song. Other then that, I liked it.
Next Episode: Raging Bully
edited 19th May '10 6:30:49 PM by SpongebobSquarepants
Episode 6: Raging Bully
So this one opens with, the kids and Candace going to the mall. Candace give Phineas and Fer some Money then she goes to talk to Jeremy.
Phineas: Hey, Where's Perry
That was almost inhumanly quick.
Monogram tells Agent P that Doofenshmirtz has bought some Helicopter Blades, Balloons and Lightbulbs and then he leaves. Whatever.
So Phineas and Ferb are at the Food Court where meet yet another Character....
Baljeet:Excuse me, but Why are you not studying?
Phineas: It's Summer vacation!
Ah, Baljeet, the Indian Nerd who study's during Summer vacation.
Phineas: You know, No School, Where No Teachers are around and all you have to worry about are Bullys?
Then Buford shows up, right on cue.
Phineas accidentally drops his last scoop of ice cream on Buford's pants, making everyone in the food court laugh.
Naturally, Buford is pissed off and wants to beat up Phineas.
Isabella: World heavyweight Boxing champion Evander Holyfield? \ How..awesome.
Phineas: Aren't you a little old to be a professional boxer? Evander: Yes, yes I am. Phineas: Cool.
So Evander offers to train Phineas for a fight outside the mall at three o'clock.
Wait, Train? You know what that means.....TRAINING MONTAGE!
And by Training Montage I mean "Song Time"
This song is called "He's A Bully". As you can imagine, It's really awesome. It's got a great beat and some cool lyrics too. I love this song.
So one of The Fireside girls passes out some flairs to advertise the fight. Candace gets sees one and unsurprisingly, she tries to bust them.
Agent P arrives at the abandoned Cake Factory and Doof traps him in some Cake Fix. Doof tells him that Today is his Birthday.
Doofenshmirtz: Unfortunately, My Birthday has always been the lousiest day of the year. It all began, on the day of my actually birth. Both of my parents failed to show up
That...makes no sense. But it's funny so who cares?
Doofenshmirtz: But this year I won't be celebrating my Birthday Alone. Behold, The Slave inator! You see the crowd will do whatever the Salve Inator tells them to!
This would be the most evil thing He's done...if he wasn't using it to make people party.
So we cut back to the mall as the fight is about to begin.
Referee: Okay, boys. Let's have a fair and square fight and in no way should this ensuing fight contain the image of a potentially harmful, hurtful, or psychologically disturbing physical act that could be imitatable by an impressionable child viewer.
Crap. So as a result they have to...Thumb Wrestle. As long as TWF isn't involved, I'm game.
So the fight starts and...Phineas is getting his ass(Or Thumb) handed to him.
Phineas: I don't think this is going so well.
Evander: Nonsense, kid! Go for the gold! Fight fire with fire! Oh, shoot. Shoot him the stink eye! Uh, grease the pig! Aw, I got nothing. Heh.
Meanwhile, Candace takes a picture of the fight with her phone and takes it to Mom but as irony would have it, her thumb is in front of the lenses.
Back in the Perry subplot, Perry escapes and makes it to Doof's helicopter equipped Slave-inator.
After a little fight, Doof is prepared to smudge his face with Ice Cream when perry uses his whale whistle(What.) and a whale knocks the Ice Cream out of his hand.
Before Phineas can get his thumb handed to him again. the Ice Cream falls on him.
Buford: Ice Cream fell on you! Now we're both humiliate in public. What do you say? Even Steven?
Phineas: Sure Buford. Even Steven!
That was....anti climatic. Also, they're gonna watch an episode of Even Stevens? JK I know what they mean.
Anyway, Doof is about to get away with his cake when some bats eat it. I guess that's the end of the perry subplot.
So the wrestle Arena is gone and Candace is once again not even close to busting Phineas and Ferb.
Buford: That was great. Same thing tomorrow? Phineas: Nah. I like to keep moving forward. Ferb: Sharks have to continue to move forward, or they'll drown. Buford: You callin' me a shark?
Then Ferb gets a CMOA where he give Buford a Vulcan nerve pinch...for some reason.
Phineas: Ferb! Ferb: Well, he was all up in my face.
Buford: What happened?
That took alot shorter then expected.
Final Thoughts? That was great. I don't know if it's better then the previous episode but I still liked it alot.
Next Episode: Candace Loses Her Head
Episode 7: Candace Loses Her Head
The episode begins as Phineas and Ferb wake up and realize it's Candace's birthday. ANOTHER birthday? First Doofenshmirtz, Now Candace. Who's next? Phineas: We've gotta do better then last year.
What did they do last year? They gave Candace a cake..with a gorilla in it. LOL.
Then we cut to Candace's dream where ....it's song time!
This one is simply called "Candace". Just a bunch of dudes singing about how great Candace is. It's an ok song I guess.
She wakes and we get the first appearance of their Father, Lawrence.
Linda and Lawrence tells her they have a surprise but have to drive to it.
Candace: Is it the mall? Linda: No. Candace: Okay..... But it's the mall, right?
So it turns out they're going to Mount Rushmore. So Danvile is close to Mount Rushmore? I guess it's in Virgina or something.
Candace is less than enthused but then she sees Jeremy at the Mr. Slushy Burger stand. Jeremy is there on the "Mr. Slushy Burger Worker Exchange program". I thinks he's stalker her(Or Vice Verse) at this point.
Phineas: Hey, Where's Perry?
I'll never get tired of quoting that.
Major Monogram informs Perry that Dr. Doofenshmirtz has a new lair inside Lincoln's head back at Mount Rushmore. Ok I guess Doof is stalking perry too.
After another scene with Candace, Perry arrives at Doof's lair.
What's his plan today? He's going to use his Drill-inator to tunnel to China, then charge tolls. Wow.
Meanwhile, Phineas and Ferb are doing some construction at Mount Rushmore What are they doing? I have no clue.
Isabella shows up and Phineas asks her to be lookout. A Park Ranger shows up to find out what the boys are doing. They confirm that they are too young to be restoring a national moment. This satisfies the ranger and he heads on his way.
Anyway, Agent P makes to the Drill Inator only for it to reach the Earth's core. Agent P takes over the controls of the Drill-inator and heads back towards Mount Rushmore. The lava flows up through the tunnel the Drill-inator is making as it goes.
Back on the surface, Isabella reports that Candace is coming. Phineas and Ferb are not ready yet so the cover up Mt. Rushmore with a Crappy Painting of it.
After Mom leaves, The Painting falls over, revealing that the kids have carved Candace's face into Mt. Rushmore. Awwww.
The Drill-inator comes out of the nose on Candace's statue, and begins falling towards Old Reliable Geyser.
Lava starts forcing its way out of the statue causing the entire statue to crumble. Old Reliable Geyser finally erupts and douses the lava, leaving Mount Rushmore exactly as it was before.
Phineas: Did you like your Birthday Present?
Ferb:Well, it was definitely better than the gorilla in the cake.
Oh that crazy Ferb.
Well that was...really short. Final Thoughts: That was....Decent I guess. I mean it was kinda short and not that interesting. But there some funy gags and some cool stuff so I'll let down easy.
Next Episode: I, Brobot

Better than a cross.Yeah, Virgina has Mount Vernon. Rushmore is in North Dakota.
Closet DCLAU fan.
Taller than ZimYou know, I find Jeremy and Candace really cute in a totally awkward and funny way.

dy/dxAnd the Dakotas have no geothermal activity as far as I'm aware.
Conversation is a contact sport.
To quote the P & F wiki:
There is a Maple Drive in the Danville of Virginia (near the border of North Carolina) suggesting that Danville is in Virginia. It also takes about 5 hours to get to Rushmore from Virginia and Virginia is a coastline state.Episode 8:I, Brobot
The episodes opens with Phineas and Ferb decided on what to do Today. Phineas notices that have too many things to do and not many days of summer do to them in.
Ferb hands over his plans for a robot, and that gives Phineas an idea: make Phinedroids and Ferbots.
Phineas: Hey, Where's Perry?
That was quick.
Agent P uses this Chimney Evaluator thing and runs into Santa. Ok.
Monogram:Agent P, Dr. Doofenshmirtz is up to his old tricks. He's made fifty-seven phone calls in the past hour. We don't know to whom or why. No, not to Santa!
Back in the garage, Phineas and Ferb are finishing up the robot-building device. Phineas places pictures of them on the scanner. Within moments, the robots are done in the device.
The Phinedroids and Ferbots exit the machine and Phineas welcomes them. He pulls out a Remote Control and pushes the "Dance" Button.
And as we all know Dancing leads to Singing. And you know what that means...song time!
This one is called "Phinedroids and Ferbots". And I freaking love it. I don't have that much else to say here.
Agent P Arrives at Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated. Doof tells Agent P that he isn't up to anything, just dealing with a "relationship bump" with his new girlfriend.
Perry glances over to the computer, where there's a plan for a crane-mounted magnet. Doof tells him he's gonna wave over his Girlfriends house to erases all the messages. Well it's better then the China Plan.
Meanwhile, Candace heads out the Backyard and sees the Phinedriods and Ferbots hanging around.
Candace is understandably freaked out by this and runs through the house and climbs down the ladder into her Panic Room.
She knows everything will be gone by the time Mom gets home so she decides to capture a Ferbot which she does successfully.
Behind her, a garbage truck has picked up the burlap bag holding the Ferbot, followed by a Fertilizer truck dropping off a bag of fertilizer.
Back in the Backyard, Phineas and Ferb check on the projects the Robots are building.
Phineas: That must have been fun to build. Ferb, even though these Robots were a success I kind of miss working on stuff. You know, just you and me.'
This is getting good.
Phineas: Oh no! The Phineadriods and Ferbots have run out of projects, so they're designing they're own! Look, they've started they're own Over Priced Coffee Franchise! That's So 90's.
Now that was funny.
Phineas: The coffee's making them go haywire! That's it! You guys are drinking way too much Coffee! I'm shutting her down!
Oh...The Phinedroids and Ferbots won't like that.
So Phineas tried to shut down the robots.
Phineas: Time to show these Robots who's in charge!
But alas, nothing happens.
Phineas: Ferb, I think They're in charge
Anyway, Doof makes it to his Girlfriends house. Perry has escaped from the trap and Doof is about to drop a giant Magnet of him. Just before the magnet lands on Agent P, Santa swoops by in his sleigh and catches the magnet on the sleigh's runners.
Doofenshmirtz: That doesn't even make sense it's the middle of July!
Santa: I'm on a summer run! Farewell, Perry The Platypus! Doofenshmirtz: Bah Humbug
Meanwhile, the robots are closing in on Phineas and Ferb. But before anything can happen, Ferb pulls out the remote. He pushes Dance button then we get the 2nd verse of that awesome song.
Mom comes home and Candace shows her bag only to find out its filled with manure. The robots are still there, so she tries to get her mom to see them. Neither of them see Santa flying overhead. As he flies over the back yard, the magnet lifts the robots out of the yard, leaving only Phineas and Ferb dancing like robots.
Candace: This time I can say with the utmost confidence that they're are Phineas and Ferb Robots in our backyard!
Linda: Yes Candace. There are Phineas and Ferb Robots in our backyard
Oh those crazy kids.
Final Thought? That was Pretty good. Better then the last episode. It's great to see Phineas and Ferb in danger for once. Great song too.

Episode 9: Run Away Runway
The episode begins with Candace watching some dude called fashion show on television. Phineas shows up and disses fashion until Candace tells him that Fashion is art that people live in and this gives Phineas an idea: He and Ferb are going to become fashion designers.
Candace finds out that Gaston Le Mode will be at the mall later on.
And for the first time ever, No one says "Where's Perry?". Kind of sad really.
So Monogram tells Agent P about Doofenshmirtz about buying some copy machines and thousands of ink cartridge. He tells him to find out and stop him.
Phineas and Ferb get a start on thier clothing line. They just got the perfect design when Isabella shows up and decides to help them out.
And in the blink of an eye...song time!
The one is called "Forever Summer" To be honest, this is my least fav song in the series so far. It's not that bad it's just...not very good.
Perry arrives at Doof's blimp and gets trapped. Then he explains his evil plan.
Doofesnshmirtz: There's nothing I hate more then waiting in lines! All the time wasted in stores in amusement parks when I could be spreading more evil in the Tri State area? I will make copy's of myself and they will do the waiting for me! I know it sounds a bit crazy but YOUR all tied up. And I'm stepping into a giant copy machine to make Duplicates of myself. Who's Crazy now?!
Now that's a real evil plan. Oh and you are the one who's crazy.
At the Googolplex Mall, Candace and Stacy sees the runway of Gaston Le Mode and thinking about becoming a supermodel as Candace daydreams about it. Well takes a look at that daydream, shall we?
Candace: Hi, I'm Candace. I'm sure you recognize me from my countless magazine covers. You know, being a supermodel is hard work: the bright lights, the deafening applause, and all those paper cuts from counting my huge stacks of money. That's why I start every morning with Candace-O's. Announcer: Candace-O's: Part of a nutritious breakfast. Stacy: Candace! Candace: What? Stacy: Candace-O's? Candace: Ugh. I really shouldn't fantasize on an empty stomach
Ok that was a CMOF.
Meanwhile, backstage, Gaston Le Mode is having a hard time looking for someone with such a long neck to wear his new design until His assistant finds Candace and shows her to Gaston, and he immediately hires Candace as a model for his runway.
Gaston: You are my cou de crayon.
Candace: Your cou de crayon? Cool!
To Google Translator away! Apparently it means "Pencil Neck"
Delivery Man: Pacage for Gaston La Mode!
Gaston: Is it a poster of Jerry Lewis?
No one obsesses over Jerry Lewis like Gaston!
As you expect, it's Phineas and Ferbs clothing line. Gaston likes it and tells Candace to cancel her design and to wear Phineas and Ferb's creation.
She refuses and runs out.
Before long, the whole Danville is sporting their fashions. Candace runs into Stacy is horrified to learn she is dressed like Ferb.
Meanwhile, Doof has just created many copys of him. He sends them all to the mall to get hims some stuff. Everyone sees the clones are wearing pharmacist clothes and immediately thinks is a new fashion that everyone bought the same pharmacist clothes. I will never understand Fashion.
Anyway, one of the Flawed Prototypes harasses Doof so tries to delete him but ends up deleting them all by mistake.
He blames Perry of what he did, but Perry ties his hand with the duck-tape and jumps out. Doofenshmirtz realizes what he did, but was pulled out of his blimp and got strap ed in the rudder of the plane with duck-tape and curses Perry the Platypus.
So Doof's outfit becomes a new Fashion Trend and everyone stops wearing Phineas and Ferb's clothes.
Candace is sad that her dreams were shattered.
Candace:Just remember, Gaston said I will always be his cou de crayon. Ferb: You do realize that's French for 'pencil neck'?
Final Thoughts? I like this. Not as much as the last one but It's still sold.
Next Episode: The Magnificent Few
Episode 10:The Magnificent Few
The episode begins with...SONGTIME! That was quick.
This song is called "On The Trail". It's song by some cowboy. It's a pretty good song.
It turns out the whole thing was just some movie Phineas was watching on his. portable video player. They are on a very tame horse ride called "Ride 'Em Cowboy!" at some place.
Phineas: Hey Isabella, what are you doing here? Isabella: I just earned my Milking badge, and it's was so easy. All you do is: squeeze and pull and squeeze and pull and squeeze and pull and squeeze and pull, and so whatcha doin'?
Phineas: We're riding ponies, but it makes a fella hanker for the real thing. You know, living out on the open range, riding, roping, branding, busting broncos and breaking wind with your amigos under the western skies. Heck, we could even ford a stream! I don't even know that that means, but it sounds fun. Oh, and spitting.
That was funny. So it looks like Phineas and Ferb are herding Cattle. Should be fun
Phineas: Hey, Where's Perry?
Stop doing that so quickly!
Major Monogram then begins the briefing. Dr. Doofenshmirtz has three overdue library books, a corner on the market for aluminum siding and a water fortress on Lake Winemahkateekihaha.
And then we cut to Doofenshmirtz Evil Inc. Glad I didn't have you wait for this part.
And then we meet a rather, interesting character....
Doofenshmirtz: Let me introduce to you, my Assistant! Vanessa! Vanessa: Whatever
Vanessa eh? File her under Lust, Perverse Sexual.
He then launches into the details of his latest plan: he's put helmets on termites so that he can control them with his own Termite-Controlling Helmet.After they eat all the wood in the Tri-State Area, everyone would have to buy aluminum siding from him. Termite, The Bugs Of Evil.
The termites end up at the Place Phineas and Ferb were hanging out and eat all the wood which cuses all the cows To Stampede straight towards town.
The boys grab some horses and head to town. The stampede continues into the mall where....it's songtime again!
It's called "In The Mall". It's good but I like the first song better.
Candace is heading their way on her bike and She loses control going down a hill and crashes into Haney's Cow Emporium.
She talks to the Owner to get something to stop the Stampede.
Candace: What have you got to Stop a stampede? Haney: Let's See...A Scary Wolf Puppet!.... Imagine your a cow. You there minding your own business chewing your cud with the other Heifers suddenly..."I'm A Very hungry wolf and I like to eat cows!"....Course not.
I can file that under CMOF.
The Silent Cow Whistle seems to be a different matter, so Candace buys that, forgetting the first word in its name.
She tries to use the whistle and complains loudly that the cow whistle doesn't work. She runs away.
Meanwhile, back at the water fortress, Agent P has been lowered ever so slowly towards the lava.
Agent P swings over to a control panel and then moves the ropes holding him close enough to the lava for it to burn through.
Now free, Agent P reaches over to a button and presses it which activates the self-destruct.
Vanessa: You put a self-destruct button in a death chamber? I'm so out of here. This is the worst 'Bring Your Daughter to Work Day' ever.
Wait, so what your saying is THAT girl is Doofenshmirtz'a...daughter?
The apple fell hard from that tree.
Agent P and Dr. Doofenshmirtz are flying back towards on Agent P's jetpack the place Dr. Doofenshmirtz lands on top of the carnival's roller coaster. Agent P puts the Termite-Controlling Helmet into reverse, drawing the termites towards the doctor. Since Dr. Doofenshmirtz cannot reach the switch, he is defeated.
The termites eat the coaster and the wood surrounds the cows, trapping them.
So Mom shows up to take them home.
Linda:Candace? Are you ok Sweetie? Candace: I SO don't wanna talk about it! Linda: Alright, get in the car, snappy pants. What was that about? Ferb: I reckon herding cattle ain't for city folk.
It sure aint
Final Thoughts? This episode was solid. I can't think of any negatives things to say about. The Positives: The song, funny joke, Haney, VANESSA.
dy/dxHave you seen much of Vanessa before?
Conversation is a contact sport.
Like I've said before, I have seen this show before. There's a ton of episodes I have yet to see. Thought most of those are in Season 2. There are some Season 1 Episodes I haven't but I'll point them out when we get there.
You see, sometimes, I'll Pretend I haven't seen certain episodes before just to make a joke. This was one of those times.

Episode 11: S'Winter
The episode opens up with Phineas and Ferb in the backyard. Lawrence shows up to ask them what they are doing. Phineas reply's that it's too hot to do anything.
So Lawrence breaks out an old snow cone machine to make some snow cones. Phineas realizes that snow in July would be pretty cool, which gives him an idea.
Phineas: Hey, Where's Perry?
Once again, that was quick.
Anyway, Monogram tells Perry that Doofenshmirtz has bought a bunch of Laser Pointers and then he leaves.
Isabella: Hey Phineas. Phineas: Hi Isabella. Isabella: Whatcha doin'? Phineas: We're making S'Winter. Ferb: It's a unique and logic defying amalgam of Winter and Summer.
Wouldn't that be Wummer? I mean they are trying to create a W intery-Summer.. So therefore, it's wummer.
They create a mountain of snow in their backyard. Candace is busy chatting to a friend on the phone , and then notices the lack of light. She struggles to open her window, and then succeeds, but also lets quite a lot of snow into her room.
Phineas tells Candace whats going on then....song time!
Much like the episode, this song is called "S'Winter". I really like this song but I think songs He's A Bully or Backyard Beach are better.
Phineas: Some people call it Wummer!
Candace then Sees Jeremy with some Swedish exchange student named DD.
Candace gets jealous and runs up the mountain and trying to make her way on the ski lift.
Then she runs into someone....
Candace: Ugh. My brothers are just driving me crazy! Vanessa:You should try spending an hour with my dad sometime
Hey! Fancy see you again! Then Candace forgots to jump off and Vanessa jumps off making her appearance...*Sigh* Entirely Pointless.
Meanwhile, Perry shows up at Doofenshmirtz's lair and he traps Perry in quick hardening chocolate.
He starts to talk about how the Melt-inator 6-5000 came to be, and what it does-Melt chocolate for him to use to create the most irresistible confection in the Tri-State Area. Cool.
Candace arrives at the top of the mountain and sees Jeremy talking to D.D. slips on the ice rink she was foolishly running on, causing her to fall off the mountain of snow and She gets caught on Phineas and Ferb's snowboard and goes through a series of obstacles which mysteriously avoid the boys, but hit Candace instead.
After a really cool scene, They then take their rightful place on the first place podium, winning the snowboarding competition. Jeremy compliments Candace and introduces her to D.D., who turns out to be a boy.
Anyway, Doof activates his machine but it takes up too much power and and ends up using all the power in the Tri-State Area.
Phineas and Ferb's machine breaks, causing all the snow to melt. Of course taken Mom and Dad to the backyard.
Candace: Mom! Dad! Hurry Up! It's a Mix of Winter and Summer! They call it S'winter.
Lawrence: I think that would be wummer wouldn't it?
You see, he gets it.
Of course all the snow is gone and Linda is clueless once again.
Phineas: Today was the best S'winter day ever! It was the ONLY S'Winter day. Unless they make a sequel episode anyway.
Final Thought? Good Episode. Not as good the last one but I enjoyed it.
Next Episode:Jerk De Soleil

Episode 12:Jerk De Soleil
Ok I actually haven't seen this one before. This should be fun.
The episdoe begins at Phineas and Ferb's as they are apparently gonna go to the circus.
But as it turns out, the leader of That Circus has had a allergy and is canceling the performance.
Linda: If it's anything like Candace's Parsnip allergy then I don't blame for not wanting to appear in public
Gee, will we see said allergy in this episode?
Phineas knows what they're going to do that day. They'll make a backyard circus and each have a part of the act.
Phineas: Hey Have you seen Perry? I put on his Costume?
Costume? Oh this should be good.
As you can well imagine, Monogram finds Perry's outfit verry amusing and Perry leaves.
Back in the backyard, Buford has brought the props for his act.
Phineas: Buford, what exactly is your act? Buford: I fly into mud...with a Paper bag on my head
BEST ACT EVAR.
Candace sees this and of course wants to bust them but Jeremy shows up with a basket of vegetables from his mother's garden.
Candace: Say are there any wild Parsnips any here? Jeremy: I think that's all thats in there.
Wow I SO Didn't see that coming!
Meanwhile, Perry shows up at Doof's place.
Doofenshmirtz: You see, ever since I child I had a high squeaky voice. But not anymore! Behold, The Voiceinator! It bio-mechanically transforms regular air into doofelium. It will make everyone elses voice higher, making my voice lower by comparison.
So your gonna do what any 12 year old kid with a youtube account can do?
Anyway, Candace's allergy takes effect, making her voice much lower. It actually sounds kind of cool.
With no more allergy pills, Candace puts a paper bag over her head.
Perry escapes from his trap and heads back to Phineas and Ferb's Circus to do his act.
After that's over, we cut to Candace as she arrives at the mall to tell Mom what Phineas and Ferb are doing.
Candace: Mom! Linda: Candace, have you been near the wild Parsnips again?
Candace: Yes but you have to see what Phineas and Ferb are doing?
As you would expect this leads to...a song!
So this one is called "E.V.I.L.B.O.Y.S." and Candace sings it in her awesomely deep voice. Now this is fucking awesome song.
Anyway, at this circus Buford is really for act. Candace shows up wearing almost the exact same outfit Buford is wearing.
She is mistaken for him and and is shot out of the tent instead of Buford, but Buford jumps into the mud to get the glory, which makes Phineas wonder how Buford got there so quickly.
Back to the Doctor, he and Perry still fighting.He breaks the controller, which lands into the boys' cirque in the whole cast part which makes the cast members' voices higher. After the performance, the cheering was high because of the voice-inator and blows the tent off, hitting the voice-inator and make Doofenshmirtz's voice even higher.
So Phineas takes the Circus down and everything seems to be back to normal.
Jeremy: Hey Candace. My Mom played me some of their CD. Your singing is awesome! How did you get your voice to sound like that? Candace: Oh Same as all great blues singers. Wild Parsnips!
Inert Witty Comment Here.
That really short. Final Thought? While it was a solid episode, It's not all that memorable. I can't even pronounce the title. But the song was awesome.
Next Episode: Are You My Mummy?
dy/dxYeah, E.V.I.L.B.O.Y.S. is very memorable.
Conversation is a contact sport.
All hail Pinkie PeixesI agree. BEST. ACT. EVAR.
