Phineas and Ferb

Review Time! For some, there are 104 days of Summer Vacation, and School comes along just to end it. So the problem that arises is how to spend it. For two young boys, step brothers Phineas and Ferb Flynn-Fletcher, there is tons of ways! From building the world’s best rollercoaster, going into outer space or even turning their backyard into a beach, the possibilities are endless! Their teenage sister Candace, however, sees their inventive shenanigans as dangerous and will stop at nothing to try and bust them (or lose her sanity in the process)! Unbeknownst to everyone, their pet platypus Perry is a secret agent whose mission is to stop the evil (but also quite bumbling and tragic) Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz and his endless Inators. All too often these two groups combine, often without the knowledge of either party and it all goes to making Candace’s life miserable! With great (often self-aware humor), lots of catchy songs (each episode has one!) and loveable characters, Phineas and Ferb is a delightful romp for everyone! The title bros are always fun to see what they will cook up next, and the rare moments that the usually taciturn Ferb speaks are always great. But the real star is Doofenshmirtz himself, who, aside from having an incredibly catchy jingle for his building, is as hilarious as he is pathetic. Every new backstory he rehearses just makes you feel bad for the guy, but then again, this is the man who insists on putting self-destruct buttons on everything, so…. If you got nothing else to do this summer, or winter, or fall or spring, there are a lot worse ways of spending it! Give it a watch, and I bet you anything you will soon be saying, “I know what I’m going to do today”! And also, “Hey, where’s Perry”?
