Episode Summary

Curious as to what Perry's chirping sound really means, Phineas and Ferb create a "Perry Translator". But they soon find it's not just bound to translating platypuses, but other animals as well. Meanwhile, Perry himself is caught in another Doofenshmirtz plan involving a shark cage that is half price, a remote to open the dam to the tri-state area, and complicated acronyms, including a high-tech BO-AT.moreless

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Great

    Phineas and Ferb invent an animal translator so people can finally know what their animals are saying. Candace of course thinks it is stupid and tries to as usual, bust her brothers.

    It was alright, the plot was interesting but I do not remember a lot of funny jokes. I also do not remember much of the subplot with Perry and Doctor D. Overall, the main plot was great, but there was n ot enough humor in it, and the subplot was probably somewhat boring, and because of this the overall grade for this is in the "B" range for memoreless
  • Good episode.

    I liked the first act with the animal translator. The Perry impersonations were funny and the Doofenshmirtz/Perry subplot is throughout brilliant and a fine example. I didn't much care for the song but perhaps that's just not my style. It seemed a bit too pop music-esque (Although i enjoyed 'Busted!' which apparently is based on popular music of some variety) and weird. 'Perfect Day' seemed an ironic title considering Candace was being chased by wild beasts through the streets of Danville but whatever. Overall a good episode. The jokes were good, the writing consistent and the plots good. Shame Perry didn't speak but after all that would be like Candace finally dating Jeremy, now wouldn't it?moreless
