It was 2007-2008, when Hannah Montana
and High School Musical
were dominating the Disney Channel
. Having grown up with One Saturday Morning
, I wasn't pleased. Then I saw a preview for the show while I was in the movie theater (before-preview ad). When I heard "Disney Channel", I was extremely iffy. I decided to give the show a try.
It was great! And it still is. I was expecting something along the lines of High School Musical
, and I got something more along the lines of Recess
instead. Some people complain that the storylines are to repetetive, but at least they play
with them. It's not like an episode of [[Anime/Pokemon Pokemon]]
nowadays where you already know what's going to happen every episode.
I really like the characters. Finally, a TV show where not everyone's an idiot or jerk! Phineas is the cute, sweet Nice Guy
, and a cross between Doug Funnie
and T.J. Detweiler
. Ferb is really funny, and I love his voice. Isabella and Baljeet are really cute, and Buford's hilarious. Even Candace, who only wants to get her brothers in trouble, is nice. Aside from them, I love Perry and Dr. Doofinshmirtz. Actually, I don't even hate one character!
The music is really, really good. The songs are very nice to listen to, and doesn't insult your intelligence or make you want to scream.
The humor is also really intelligent. No fart jokes every two seconds or humor out of characters being jerks. Lots of Parental Bonus
jokes and jokes that even lampshade the show.
The only real "Disney Channel" thing about it is that Ashley Tisdale
, who was in HSM, is Candace. I don't have a problem with this; she was actually the only thing that made the movie enjoyable. Also, Mitchell Musso is Jeremy, but I'm fine with that. It's not like they got the Sprouse brothers/Jonas Brothers to voice the duo.
So check this show out, it's Disney Channel
's best show since Kim Possible
and Dave The Barbarian
