    If Doofensmirtz is such a menace, why don't they just throw him in jail?

    Two reasons occur to me


    1. Since every one of his -inators is obliterated (and thier effects usually nullified) they may not have any evidence to prosecute him. The onlypeople who could be brought in to testifiy to what he doesare Agents themselves, who are unsupoenable (it is a secret agency, remember) and his own family (whose testimony would be inadmissable).


    2. He is the mayor's brother, after all. No doubt being that gives him a lot of freedom. Everyone loves Rodger, and bringing his brother to trial is likely something none of them wants to do


    3. in the heirarchy of Supervillians, Doof is very much low man on the totem pole. Almost every other member of L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N. is probably a more competant evil genius than him. Quite simply the Agency has bigger evil fish to fry.

    Now, that you mention it, I agree. His actions don't cause a lot of trouble, and there's no one really who can prove he's been doing it all.

    Nonetheless, he and another evil genius (I can't remember his name) did get put in jail in "Norm Unleashed", although I'm unsure of the reason.

    You mean disrespecting the court, right?

    Part 1 of tonight's episode was interesting. I liked Carl's dance number. But the song kinda sent a wrong message. Not not really. But he said why he was being bad***. There were other things I thought about as well, such as how Candace was, etc.

    Well, he's about to beat most of the Avengers, so I doubt they'll even TRY to get him in jail now.

    There is also the fact that they have to put him on trial first, and who can testify against him, a platypus?

    Tonight's new episode was very interesting. The TV concept. Of course, there were some things I thought about as well. Candace is a LIL' hard to impress.

    It was the doofus playing the rat supervillain, right? And yeah, Candace is hard to impress, maybe too hard to please.
