Show Summary

Welcome to the Phineas and Ferb page at TV.com! Looking for something to do when school is out for the summer? Then you should tune in to this hit animated series on the Disney Channels (including Disney XD) as this show can give you all sorts of ideas that two overly creative stepbrothers can come up with during each day to pass the time before school starts in the fall. Of course, in real life, all of them would be impossible to do in one day. But as the master builders they are, Phineas and Ferb are able to bring their grand inventions and structures to life within a few hours, have their fun, and prepare for their next thing to do the next day. In their blended family, Phineas and Ferb are stepbrothers and can come up with the ideas on what to build and do for fun. Phineas' teenage older sister Candace, regards most of what they do as dangerous and unsafe, and in most episodes, tries her best to bust them in their schemes to her mom, Linda Flynn, or occasionally, her stepfather Lawrence Fletcher. However, her efforts are mostly thwarted as the boys' grand structures or inventions miraculously disappear before either parent can see them before arriving home or wherever they're located. Most times, they disappear as a result of their pet, Perry the Platypus, whom unknown to anyone in the family is a secret agent. To the Flynn-Fletcher family, he's a simple-minded pet, but when he gets the opportunity and nobody is looking, he puts on his little fedora hat, sneaks into his secret lair under the family home via various methods, and gets his assignments from Major Monogram. Perry's nemesis is Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz, an evil, but goofy scientist who comes up with various schemes of his own in efforts to rule the tri-state area of Danville, hometown of Phineas, Ferb, and company. Doofenshmirtz's schemes are as outrageous as the boys, as are the reasons he came up with them in the first place. But unlike, Phineas and Ferb, Heinz's efforts are usually unsuccessful as Perry is able to thwart the scientist's, and most times, the boys' and Perry's stories intertwine, leading to not just success for Perry, Phineas and Ferb and Doofenshmirtz's defeat, but Candace being denied the chance to bust her brothers. The cycle then starts again the following day in the summer.moreless

    A mean sister trying to "bust" her smart and creative brothers? Seriously?
  • Deterioration in quality

    4.5
    At first this show was incredibly witty, smart and funny. But after a while it becomes boring cause every episode always has the same dull monotonic plot formula.
  • eh...

    Have you ever watched a show, and 2 seasons in, you expect stuff to change, but everything keeps going the same exact way? This is how I feel with this show. While far from the worst, it falls right in the buttcheeks of dissapointing. Why is that? It is disney channel's currently most popular cartoon, and its critically acclaimed! well, I dont care what they say, because this show has 3 issues that overshadow what I enjoy about it.



    1. the voice acting isnt very good. I hate ashely tisdale, and the voice of phineas is as irritating as having toxic waste poured in my ear. it also doesn't help that the characters themselves are bland.



    2. its formula. many shows like scooby-doo have a flowing, repeating formula that is followed the whole series. Some shows end up standing the test of time because people remember and love the characters, but once you know exactly what happens word for word before the episode even comes out, that becomes an issue. Phineas and Ferb plays it safe and has kept it safe for so long it's going to eventually bite back. even with the occassional what-if episode, it all feels the same, and by now, that's a problem.



    3. the songs.... not every episode needs a song.. even the marvel special acted like a musical (but to the special's credit, it was the closest it got to a new, different turn, and despite the songs, it was fresh).



    bottom line is this show is the least bad of the disney channel line-up. there are way worse shows out there, and this is half a step above new spongebob episodes. I dont plan on watching it since i get a bad taste in my mouth from the voice acting. That, and I know exactly what they will do and say when it reaches its next season. While its bad, its alright if you like it.moreless
