Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Worst episode of Season 1

    This is quite an uninteresting episode and is probably the worst of season 1. It wasn't that bad but the standard for Season 1 was very high compared to Season 2 and 3 so its not the worst episode.
  • The family goes to England to visit Ferb's grandparents and put on a mideval tournament, while PErry fights Doofenshmirtz at an evil weapons expo.

    This was a great episode. With the characters visiting England, they didn't just copy and paste buildings from home, but took the time to do alot of good background art throughout the episode. The story workedwell too. Although it was pretty convenient for an English version of Jeremy to be there to distract Candace, it worked really well, with her getting into the story rather well. Candace, the gravy truck and the dogs combining to make her "the ghost of the black knight" was very creative, too. Perry and Doofenshmirtz' fight was good, as well. Good joke for Perry's ID to say "Not a playtpus" on the bottom, too. OVerall it was a great episode. Grade : B+moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • This is the first episode of the series Lawrence Fletcher's parents appear.

    • This is one of three episodes which do not feature any of Phineas and Ferb's friends (Isabella, Baljeet and Buford). The other episodes are Toy to the World and Elementary, My Dear Stacy. This is to be expected since both this and the latter take place in England, and in Toy to the World the boys are spending more time supervising the factory.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Phineas: Grandpa Fletcher, we should have a medieval tournament, like the knights did in days of yore! We can have jousting, a catapult, and not bathe!
      Grandpa Fletcher: Way ahead of you on the not bathing.

    • Doofenshmirtz: Perry the Platypus, your dragon robot is no match for my Queen Elizabeth the first... robot. Do you want to switch? Come on, be a sport!
