Only good thing on Disney Channel
I've watched this channel since I was a kid, and still do. And I'm not embarrassed by that considering it's mostly for Bile Fascination now. I used to like it. There were always bad shows, but back then there were way more good shows (which in fact were mostly cartoons.) Eventually there was a decay in quality that lead to cartoons that only relied on crude humor, much like the worst shows on Cartoon Network. I don't have a problem with that, so long as they don't overdo it and rely on it beyond anything else... which they did. And unfortunately that's still happening. And the same time led not only to more bad sitcoms, but also to some of the worst sitcoms, like Hannah Montana and... THAT show. I eventually watched it just to see how godawful they could make it and how much more they could shame the name of Disney... until this show came along.

Phineas and Ferb wasn't a great show at first, but gradually got so much better. The reason this show works is that it's ridiculous... and takes advantage of that. The writers went all the way with how silly the universe is, such as the numerous times that Candace can't bust her brothers because so many weird things happened. It's basically satirizing itself. The jokes are usually enough to at least get a grin or snicker, then you'll get a few that are downright hilarious. The songs aren't great, but I'm willing to look past that. This is one of the few cartoons where I always make sure to see the new episodes and especially look forward to special episodes. So there... I like a current show on Disney Channel and I'm not afraid to admit it.
