  • Phineas and Ferb make some plans for their mom's birthday

    Candace plans a special birthday for Mom, and even a song, but Phineas and Ferb are always getting in her way of what she planned, unintentionally topping everything. Meanwhile, Doofenshmirtz creates a shrinking machine that will make whatever he hates implode. I thought this was an excellent episode of Phineas and Ferb. Of course, the reason why it's a 10 because no plot of Candace busting Phineas and Ferb. =) That's what I like to see. Anyway, I laughed/like Candace singing a song for Linda, flashbacks of Phineas and Ferb not forgetting their mom's birthday, all the parts with Doofenshmirtz, all the instruments that start with B disappear, and the song. Overall, a pretty excellent episode and one of season 1 in my opinion. 10/10
  • One of the worst I've seen of this series. I feel like a supreme pizza watching this.

    First of all, Candace is singing for Mom in the morning, and Phineas and Ferb are waken up by her. Phineas and Ferb give Mom some magazines to read. And when the boys suprise her, the entire gang is along. Mom is proud of what the boys did. Perry tries to stop Doofenzmirtz from shrinking every item he hates in the entire Tri-State Area. Two wax models of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Perry is caught by them. Candace tries to make a birthday card for Mom, but Phineas and Ferb's card was a big suprise. And Candace tries to get a cute little sundress for Mom, but a swarming crown of moths ruined it. Phineas and Ferb made a live stage. and Phineas, Ferb, and Candace sing for Mom. First of all, why did Mom discover Phineas and Ferb's plans without being busted?

    FINAL SCORE: 4.0 (Poor)
  • It's mom's birthday and the kids try to outdo each otehr with presents for her. Meanwhile, Doofenshmirtz plans to destroy things that annoy him all around the tri state area.

    Although this episode was out of character, it was still a great different kind of ep. They stayed true to the style of Candace fighting with her brothers, but managed to do in a completely new way, using a sibling rivalry style over who could impress their mom more for her birthday. The Perry / Doofenshmirtz story was nothing special, but it did occasionally connect to the main story, as it has in the past. I also thought it was interesting that Phineas and Ferb did a lot of big stuff in their backyard (the huge tv, the satellite uplink, ect), the kid of stuff Candace would use to bust them in other eps, but this time their mom sees it all and clearly doesn't care. Maybe it's because it was all for her, but this could also prove that, if Candace ever busted them, their mom wouldn't really care. Overall, a great episode. Grade : B+
