  • A very funny show

    I am a very big fan of Phineas and Ferb and I think it may be one of the best animated shows of all time. This show is VERY hilarious and VERY original. I like the animation, it's well done. All the characters are likeable and have their own personality. Phineas and Ferb is definetly the best show on Disney right now and it will make you laugh everytime with it's smart and clever jokes. But dispite all of these good qualities, the show is too repetetive. The show is getting kinda old now and since season 3, it has been losing it's hilarious jokes. Most of the funniest episodes are found in the first two seasons. But I guess the third season is still watchable and it's definetely better than Fish hooks. All those people who say it's a bad show obviously have no taste in humor and have no respect for clever jokes and would rather spend their time on dumb humor rather than smart humor.

    So if you want to see a smart, funny and well developed show, Phineas and Ferb is the cartoon for you.

  • Worst Disney Channel animated show I've ever seen

    Okay, this show used to be great back when it was Season 1 then my opinion lowered down to okay when Season 2 came and now my opinion is officially changing to bad. Season 3 has been started out pretty good but now the season is really starting out to get worse. These writers are seriously running out of ideas. Seriously? an episode about potatoes invading Danville. There was also mess of a Christmas episode "Phineas and Ferb Family Christmas". Man, Season 3 is just getting worse and worse. Even a few of the people that love this show agree that this show is going downhill. Candace is BY FAR the worst part of the entire show. She annoys the living' heck out of me and I seriously want to grab a bat and smack her to make her shut up. Now Candace wasn't that bad in Season 1 but once it got to Season 2, oh my gosh... it makes me want to eat ear plugs and shove them in my ears to stop the annoyance. This show is NOT very original either... there are WAY more original ideas than this show. My score is still a little high because Season 1 was actually a good season, Season 2 had some good episodes while it also had some bad episodes... Season 3 is the same as Season 2 but not it's starting to go horrible. Writers, do me and the others a favor and cancel this show already. Come on, we already know you're running out of ideas... you've pretty used every idea in the idea book for this show. There really isn't more ideas for this show so just accept the fact that this show needs to end already. Unless these kids go back to school where you can get more ideas, just put this show to rest already. Probably the only original thing about this show is the Doofenschmirtz/Perry plot but that's it. The only time I watch this show is when Disney Channel airs new episodes. Sometimes I watch reruns but that's only if the episodes I love are showing. My favorite episodes are "Undercover Carl", "Nerds of a Feather", and some more. I also have to admit that the movie "Phineas and Ferb: Across the Second Dimension" was awesome even though it had a few flaws. So yeah, I really will never understand why people actually like this show but this show just needs to end now. I'm sorry fans uut I just think it's for the best before this show suffers even more. Overall, it used to be good back in Season 1 but now the show and Season 3 is starting to suck even more now. 3/10
  • good but it could be better


    good but it could be better. Phineas and Ferb used to be the best show on Disney Channel, but now it's getting old. Everything is getting old. The old thing that isn't becoming old is Dr. Doofensmertz he is still hillarious no matter what. But Candace is getting old by coming so close to busting Phineas and Ferb and she never does, and Phineas and Ferb's inventions always disappearing right before their mom sees it. And the worst thing about this show is the songs. Oh my gosh their are so annoying. and that's why the worst episode is Rollercoaster the Musical. overall Phineas and Ferb could be better..

  • Rockos Modern Life meets The Replacements meets Family Guy an American dad meets Dave the Barbarian meets Johnny Test meets Drake and Josh meets ......... (see full review for more details)

    Fairly odd Parents meets Billy and Mandy meets Jimmy Neutron meets Brandy and Mr.Whiskers meets meets Kim Possible.

    I just watched the pilot,preview episode and I had to say it was just a bit time wasting. The plot really says it all. They just build a rollercoaster. Oh and everyone else is doing basic things. Such as the mom goes shopping, sister watches the phineas and ferb, some platypus goes and meets a bad guy. So plain that all the writers must of been tired from working on their other shows. The characters are well not really put to good use. The animation is nice, I like how vivid the colours are and they do use some cgi. But there heads are creepy. Phineas head is a full triangle. And the sisters head is the worst. The mom is ok and same with ferb but everybody must look so strange.

    Meh, I dont know what to say. The show really isn't that impressive. I'm sorry but bringing together writers from different shows really wasn't a good idea. Maybe they got into some feud and thats why. the plots were gosh awful.

    Mindful the undercover platypus is really what keeps the show going. I would rather watch a spinoff of him then this show.
  • this show is very funny but at the sams time childishod

    i think this is a good cartoon show especially for disney channel standards. not as good as cartoon networks shows and of coarse not as good as spongebob. good show though watch it but i would recommend spongebob as a better show for those who like phineas and ferb.

    i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i i
  • And the point of this show is?

    Ok, I gave this show a try because I heard Ashley Tisdale was in it. I tried to keep an open mind, kept reminding myself that it was meant for a younger audience.

    BUT... What are they showing the new generation? I was hoping to watch something like the "Anamaniacs" you know, funny and wacky but with a moral in the end... But instead had to indure 20 minutes of this pathetic excuse for a show, it's nothing more than pittiful...

    It clearly has NO morals, shows kids how NOT to behave, storylines that make NO sence, unoriginal and down-right mind-boggling characters... Not to mention the atrocious script and voice-acting...

    I am NOT and will NOT give this show a second chance, I'd rather watch paint-dry... I still cannot believe how bad tv-programming has become...
  • A boring,unrealistic show that's on Disney Channel.

    Phineas and Ferb is basically about two kids named Phineas and Ferb built spome wacky thing,like a roller coaster.I first saw it on Youtube and guess what it was boring.Nothing funny or exicting happens during the episode.

    Plot:Phineas and Ferb was sitting in a shady tree bored as heck with noting better to do.The mom leaves and the sister(Candace) is in charge.Phineas though this idea to build something fun like a tree house.Candace get supicious and she calls her mom that Phineas and Ferb shouldn't have been doing,and Perry the Platypus is doing his mission is the sub-plot of this show.The climax of every episode is this Phineas and Ferb is building thier attraction and Perry got caught by mega-lame bad guy named Dr.Doofinswartz(sorry if I misspelled it).Perry defeats the bad guy and Phineas and Ferb atracction became popular quickly.The sister tries to tell her mom that Phineas and Ferb did something they did wrong.Their atraction gets destroyed and Phineas and Ferb went to their backyard.The mom dismissed her daughter like,she was crazy was making a lie,infact Candace was telling the truth the whole time.

    My Thought of the show:It's a bad influence of kids.It's one of the worst Disney animated shows I've ever seen.It's repetitive like FOP.

    This is LSUstinks11 telling you have a good night.
  • What was Disney Channel thinking when it replaced two good shows with this madlib?

    This show is definately one worth missing. Every episode is the same basic thing: Boys get bored and do something behind their mother's back, their sister tries to bust them and fails, everything disappears, the platypus defeats the same badguy and his lame-brain schemes, THE END.

    Disney has lost it's edge, I wouldn't be surprised if the script for each episode was just the same madlib sheet with something different in each box. The only reason I believe that people watch this show is because it is overadvertised and shoved down our throats, it's anoying. Newsflash Disney Channel, just because you advertise something too much, that doesn't mean it's good.

    Some of the character designs are far from original
    Phineas: Spy vs Spy
    Candace: Jazz Fenton (Danny Phantom)
    Lindah: Dexter's mom (Dexter's Laboratory)
    The Father (I forget his name): Jonathan Long (American Dragon: Jake Long)
    Vanessa: Cliche
    Doofenshmirtz: I don't know who, but he reminds me of something

    This show is by far the biggest waste of fifteen minutes since cafeteria lines.

    By the way, what is up with the Platypus? why on Earth would an agency train a bunch of mindless animals to be agents? HOW on Earth could an agency train animals to become agents? and don't get me started on foiling the same villain every time. This show lacks thurough background, it lacks variety, it lacks logic and reason, it lacks conflict, and it lacks morals; Even "American Dragon: Jake Long" had more logic, and it had magical creatures in it.

    All in all, If Disney Channel is going to make an animated series, they might as well not waste their time with this piece of garbage. By the way, I think that Disney Channel has lost all knowledge to the meaning of the word "originality"
  • the only good on disney

    this is the best show on 4 kids and the only good on disney channel this show is about An animated comedy about two-step brothers who find inventive things to do on each day of their summer vacation such as building a roller coaster out of materials you would find in your everyday home like popsicle sticks, indoor plumbing, etc. Unbeknownst to them, their pet platypus, Perry, leads a double life as a secret agent It even took creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff "Swampy" Marsh 16 years to get "Phineas and Ferb" on television go Phineas and Ferb phines and ferb 4ever
  • A platypus? PERRY the platypus?! I love this crazy cartoon!

    OK, OK. I know I'm way too old to be watching cartoons on Disney Channel. But Phineas and Ferb, the newest animated hit on the network, is truly great, considering they do pretty much the same thing every episode. Phineas and Ferb, the ambitious stepbrothers on the show, want to have the best summer ever. Every day they do something wacky and fun. One day it's building a roller coaster, the next it's carving their sister's face into Mount Rushmore. And of course, they always bring along their pet platypus, Perry.
    Their teenage sister, Candace, wants nothing more than to get her brothers in trouble. She's the only one in the family that knows about the boys' crazy plans, and every time she finds out about their latest idea she runs to Mom and attempts to bust them, only to have whatever they did mysteriously disappear somehow. But when she's not busy getting Phineas and Ferb in trouble, she's flirting with her crush, Jeremy, which is cute.
    But where did Perry go? He's off on a secret agent mission as Agent P, to stop Dr. Doofenshmirtz's latest plan. (He even has his own theme song: He's a semi-aquatic egg-laying mammal of action!) Agent P's arch-nemesis's evil schemes always involve wreaking havoc on the tri-state area and destroying Perry. But the good guy always triumphs in the end, of course, and then gets back to Phineas and Ferb's house to continue his role as a 'mindless domestic house pet'. (Hey, whaddya expect? It's Disney!)
    Ahh, Phineas and Ferb--why I still watch Disney Channel. It's funny, original, crazy, clean, and definitely worth seeing.
  • A mess

    Phineas, a show that reminds me of dung. A show with former Spongebob and Rocko workers who lost their sense of humour somewhere between 2001 and now. My blame is Dan's work on that crap on Fox. Phineas is a desperate attempt by Disney (who at one time aired classics such as Ducktales,Rescue Rangers and Darkwing Duck) to replace Kim and challenge that yellow nerd on PS3 it's failing in all areas. Phineas uses actors from popular Disney shows in order to trick people into thinking they're watching Suite Life and Camp Rock. instead of the mess that's really on. Phineas is an insult to Disney and animation. With hit or mis humour Phineas hit's your nerves and misses your sense of humor on the way out.

    Unlike most Disney cartoons this show won't be airing in 5 years. Someone needs to call Fleemco and replace Phineas with the good day's of talking ducks and Bear Pilots.
  • Disney needs to work on its story more, because every episode seems to be the same.

    I liked the old Disney, back before Hannah Montana and High School Musical took over, and I guess you can say Phineas and Ferb fits into the new Disney category. I have to say that this is definitely not their finest work, and that statement puts it mildly. Even with their attempts to make each episode different and unique, they still seem to be carbon copies of each other in some way. The simple storyline is that Phineas and Ferb think of an idea which is followed by "Where's Perry?" and it shows Perry going off to fight evil, which is a cruddy side plot. Candace tries to call her mother to bust the boys, but always fails. As it so turns out, the enemy of Perry as a secret agent/platypus destroys the evidence in some way. Apart from a few alterations, the episodes' plots barely change. In conclusion, this show is just like any other new Disney installement, except catchy songs occupy nearly each episode.
  • This show is too repeative.

    This show is about 2 boys named Phineas and Ferb who do a lot of fun things during their summer vacation like they built roller coasters or some other crazy things. But I don't really get how the heck can they actually get all the equipment to make those things. This show gets repeative because it is like the same thing in every episode, like Phineas and Ferb think of something to make, then their sister, Candace sees what they did but she mostly complains and tries to get her mom to come and see what are they doing but she never gets the chance because Phineas and Ferb manage to somehow hide their inventions. The humor in this show is alright but it could use some improvement.

    Overall, this show is repeative and should at least change but I still would reccommend this show to anyone who watches the Disney Channel mostly and never saw this show but seriously Disney Channel is starting to go downhill especially with Hannah Montana and this concludes my review.
  • I can only give this show a 4. Read why.

    Phineas and Ferb are about two brothers who do all sorts of wacky things and as much as they can before it is time to go back to school. They work on all sorts of projects while their pet platypus needs to stop an evil scientist from causing destruction to the planet. Now here's the things about this show that need fine-tuning: Okay first off, the intro music sounds kinda creepy. Who thought of that music? *Shudders.* The animation for this show is also pretty bad, and has freaky designs! Phineas's head is a triangle! I don't see anything too pretty and shiny about the animation in this show. And absolutely WORST of all: The plots for each episode. It is clearly a plot recycled for every episode. This show has poor effort and creativity, if the plot is the same with only some minor alterations in each episode. Its like Disney are not even trying anymore, they need to go back and try again. Here's my guess on what the script is for this whole show: Phineas and Ferb have a new idea, it is ____ and they are gonna try ad make it successful. However, Candace tries to bust them for ____ and Perry must stop Doofenshmirtz from ____ and defeat him. At the end, Candace always fails at showing her mom their project. The end. So this show can get rather stale after a while. I give this show the Stale Plots penalty (which is a spoof of the Stale Moves penalty in Super Smash Bros. Melee.) Well that's it, poor show. This review is now over.
  • The show is incredibly ferbtastic.

    I like how the story usually goes by, there are many situations I liked the most that's why I love that show. The show also is like a musical it presents a song for almost every episode, the song so far is really catchy and harmonic. Just like the song titled Gitchi Gitchi Goo, that is really catchy, mom its your birthday, Love Handel's songs, etc. I'm looking forward for a brand new season of this show and I know there will be a brand new season of it because the show is one of the most leading cartoon show on Disney channel. For me, the show is incredibly ferbtastic.
    The show is great series for kids and also for teen like me. Keep on producing brand new episodes of Phineas and Ferb. Let us support this show for its superb genre of a cartoon show.
  • SOS! This is my sister's favorite show!

    This show has a formula for every episode that causes it to be annoying! Every episode seems to have the same three sub-plots. One of them involves Phineas and Ferb doing something that your average kid would never be able to do. The second involves Perry the platapus and some evil guy who never gets anything done. The third and most annoying is the childish brat Candace who acts like a little sister, even though she's older than Phineas and Ferb. She feels the need to spoil their fun all the time by trying to tell their mom, but luckily it never works. She also obsesses over that stupid Jeremy kid. The worst thing about this show are all the musical numbers the creators feel the need to shove into the show. Cartoons should leave stupid music out of it. It's just a turn-off, like the Fairly Odd Parents and Chip Skylark, or this show and "The Bettys."
  • The difference between this and all the other shows on Disney Channel is that this is actually relatively good.

    This wouldn't be so bad if Candace wasn't so annoying. Seriously, why does she even care what her brothers do? Oh well. However, I think Disney Channel has been lying to us! Ever since that Christmas episode of Phineas and Ferb was made, they've just been advertising episodes that were already made as new. And now, thanks to that stupid Winter Break episode, they can't make any new episodes of Phineas and Ferb! Gaaah! *sighs* Oh well. It was funny while it lasted. It's sad because this is the only surviving cartoon on Disney Channel. That's just my opinion. Eh. I hope I haven't offended anyone.

  • Phineas and Ferb might not be the best for few people, but it's perfect for people with intelligent sense of humour.


    Phineas and Ferb are obviously repetitive in plot-end, Doofenshmirtz losing and Candace failing, but there are always wonderful variations to the story, and funny jokes that's not neccessarily repeated. Some jokes are oriented for people with higher intelligence, which are the part I like. So far I have never seen a show with clever jokes like this. Though more crazily, it is still amusing for young audiences!!! It's just ENTERTAINING. The repetition just makes it better, instead of making it boring.

  • This has a cool plot. This is better than the stupid show named ed edd n eddy.


    This show is about two boys named phineas and ferb, phineas is 10 years old, ferb is 11 years old, and they do smart stuff like build stuff. But, meanwhile, candace comes, she reminds me of the devil. She tries to tell on mom. Then, phineas says: "hey, where's perry?". Then, perry goes in his secret lab with monogram. Then, monogram orders perry to stop doofenshmirtz from doing evil stuff, then perry goes and does what monogram says. Then, isabella comes and says: "whatcha doin?", then phineas tells isabella what they're doing, building stuff. Then, it cuts to a song that says: "DOOFENSHMIRTZ EVIL INCORPORATED!". Then, doofenshmirtz says: "ah, perry the platypus. What an unexpected surprise.", then he gets out his inator ray and fires perry to capture him or even defeat him. Then, doofenshmirtz gets perry to go defeat him or even have a fight. Then, it cuts to candace going to tell mom something about phineas and ferb building something that she doesn't like. But, mom never actually sees what phineas and ferb were doing, then perry tries to defeat doofenshmirtz, and then he finally defeats doofenshmirtz. Then, perry comes down and phineas and ferb sees perry is finally here, then phineas says: "oh, there you are, perry.". Then, ferb finally talks at least once. Then, candace gets upset and goes in the house with phineas, ferb, and mom.

  • This is one of the best cartoon series on TV at the moment. Its pitched at kids but adults can enjoy it as well, in fact sometimes I think the jokes are aimed at the parents. A real family show, with positive role-models, that is funny! That's a rarity.


    This is one of the best cartoon series on TV at the moment. Its pitched at kids but adults can enjoy it as well, in fact sometimes I think the jokes are aimed at the parents. A real family show, with positive role-models, that is funny! That's a rarity.

    The show is criticised for its repetitiveness, but actually for most people it adds to the charm. There is nothing edgy about this cartoon, which I think is where it gets most of its criticism from. Also a lot of people seem to dislike the songs from the series, but in my family we love the songs.

    Everyone - "Bow chika bow wow, That's what my baby says!
    Mow mow mow and my heart starts pumpin'
    Chika chika chu whop
    Never Gonna Stop Gitchi Gitchi Goo means That I Love You"

  • Horribly underrated!

    Phineas and Ferb has to be one of the most unappreciated shows on television. When this show first aired, I found it to be a huge deal. This is because that back when it was first on, the cartoons ranged no longer than for 10 minutes, and for everyday that it was on, I was dying to see if I could squeeze out at least five minutes from at least one episode. Unfortunately, I was out during most of the year of the show's premier and every attempt I made to get home from wherever I was, I failed. Now that the show's pushing its third season, I just simply can't get enough of it. With the writers at their peak and the show still going strong, I prayed for them to come back with a third season, and guess what? I got my wish and I must say that in comparison to all the garbage that's on t.v nowadays, I feel compelled to tell you guys that this show is seriously lacking in the appreciation that it deserves. Sure, the show's got a basic format. In other words, it's repetitive. But what show isn't? Many shows today rely on running gags and simple format to get their points across (maybe some more than others), but it all depends on how and when you use it. I seriously think that some of you guys aren't giving this show enough of a chance. But if you say you already have, then I believe you and I respect that opinion. But please don't go knocking this show, because really, it's not as bad as you make it out to be. Trust me, there's worse. Much, much worse.
  • Very Creative, one of the best cartoons of all time!


    Phineas and Ferb is an incredible cartoon. It shows that you can make everything fun in your life. It's creative, and it is truly an 'all ages show.' It has enough little gags to entertain kids, and enough smart's to entertain adults. It's another win for Disney.

  • Perfect

    I love this show, and I found it by total accident/out of boredom. But I think it is a great show. People who complain about the repetitiveness of episodes, each episode having the same plot, that's the point, so they can have running gags in each episode. It doesn't seem creative but In my Opinion it is.

    I love Doctor D {however you spell his name}. He is really funny and his voice makes me laugh.

    So basically one of Disney Channel's Best Shows. It easily beats out almost anything else on the channel. My final grade for this would have to be a A-
  • Hey Ferb, I know what we're gonna do today! Review out show!

    Okay, I know the sentence before was incredibly lame & stupid, but I dont freaking care. So, I love this show cause of 2 reasons: 1, it's freakig awesome and 2, it inspired Disney to make more cartoons, and I'm really grateful for that.

    So, it's summer vacation, and the last thing Phineas wants to do when they go back to school is to say they didn't do anything, even if that means building 2 rollercoasters, a rocket, a circus, a mind switcher, a device to pass thorugh solid objects, etc. Ferb, his bor, is basically who makes it happen. Candace, their sister, s constantly trying to "bust" them cause he thinks her mom will ground them.

    We also have their friends Isabells (with a crush on Timmy), Bajeet (obilgaroty black kid) & Bufrod (the bully not so bullyish). And also, Perry the platypus, their dull pet who has a double life as a freaking agent who twarts evil Dr. Doofenshmirtz everyday (to be fair, it's not that hard, a plant thwartd him once).

    OVerall: It's a great show, rerally creative, with great characters and musical numbers. Watch it. 9/10.
  • Phineas and Ferb is Ok show

    Phineas and Ferb is a show thats has and shares the same style of humor of Family Guy and SpongeBob(Well the guy who made this show,Did use to work on FG and SB before PandF)The shows give us the of watching a good cartoon shows from the the 90's with a tiny mix of todays cartoons.The show is better than Disney's fail shows like Kim possible,American Dragon,and the Replacements.Phineas and Ferb is about Two sept-brothers and there secret agent pet platypus whos everyday tires to haves the best summer ever all summer long. Pros Great storyline: Great Voice Acting. Cons: Annoying characters like Isabella and Candace(and Fred) The reuse of the same formula over and over again:Songs on almost every episodes. Overall I rates this 5.5 stars
  • The show suffers from a number of issues, not least of which is the fact that every episode is practically the same.

    My main issue with Phineas and Ferb is that every episode has pretty much the same plot. What's even more annoying is the fact that the series constantly pokes fun at this. It's as if the writers think that it's okay to be lazy if they constantly acknowledge it.

    Another huge problem with the show is the characters, who are completely one dimensional. Everyone in the show can pretty much do anything. No one ever gets so much as a scrape, everyone can sing, and there seems to be no limit to what they can do. This is very annoying because it makes the characters completely unrelatable, and it means that there's never any sense of danger. You never find yourself interested in what's going to happen next because it always plays out the same. Phineas and Ferb's mom will never find out about their crazy schemes (despite the fact that everyone in town could vouch for Candace) and Doofenshmirtz will never take over the Tri-State area. There's no suspense, no drama, and there are no surprises.

    The humor itself is minimal. Every episode recycles the same jokes and lines, such as characters acknowledging strange events with comments such as "yes, yes it is," or Doofenshmirtz naming all of his inventions "something-inators". The jokes are tired, unoriginal, and completely predictable.

    A big focus of the show is music. As I mentioned earlier, it seems that every character can sing with ease. This makes for a lot of cheesy musical numbers that feature bland lyrics and tunes that aren't afraid to completely rip off real songs. The show would be much better if less time was spent on these overdone musical numbers featured in every episode (sometimes multiple times) and more time was spent developing the characters, plots and humor more.

    The animation is, at best, sub-par. The colors, shapes, and character designs all have a "been there, done that" feel, and artistically there's nothing that pops. Shows like SpongeBob feature cool painted backgrounds and interesting character designs, but Phineas and Ferb is perfectly content with using rudimentary shapes and basic colors for its look.

    The characters are unlikable. Phineas is too happy, but will occasionaly, for no reason, start acting sarcastic for no real reason at all. Ferb hardly ever talks, and the humor that stems from his deep English accent wears thin after he's muttered a few words. Candace comes off as a total jerk, who acts almost psychopathic and is completely intent on busting her brothers for no reason other than to get them in trouble. The rest of the characters are all forgettable, with the exception of Perry the Platypus.

    Perry's scenes are probably the only decent ones, with some funny lines coming from Doofenshmirtz. There's a humorous villain/friend relationship between Perry and Doofenshmirtz, with them mostly fighting each other but occasionally hanging out and doing stuff like watching fitness tapes together. If the whole show was about Perry the Platypus then it could be a lot of fun, but instead his plots are reduced to side stories that only serve to break up the main plot.

    Phineas and Ferb is not an enjoyable show for anyone over the age of ten. You may get a kick out of the first few episodes you see, but it's not long before it grows tiresome, and the laziness of the writing starts to show. There's nothing here that hasn't been done much better on other shows, and it doesn't have the charm or artistic flair to make up for its dull storylines and bland humor.
  • Phineas and Ferb is a good show...

    This is a pretty good cartoon. I like how every episode has the same formula: The boys invent things and Candace tries to bust them. Then Perry and Doofensmertz(did i spell that right?) battle and always get rid of the boys' inventions before their mom can see them. I thought that was pretty funny, but that can get repetitive. I used to watch this show all the time, but it just got old. I think I've seen almost all of the episodes since every time I go to the show, it's an episode I have already seen. This show rips off Spongebob, Jimmy Neutron, and Dexter's Lab though, so I think this show is unoriginal. But that doesn't make the show bad. One thing that annoy me is that Perry the Platypus is overrated. I constantly see someone wearing a shirt of Perry, and that annoys me. Also, Perry is just a rip off of Monkey from Dexter's Laboratory. Phineas and Ferb is a pretty good show, but it gets old, it gets repetitive, is overrated, and is unoriginal.
  • Phineas and Ferb is an actually pretty great show. This is my review on it.

    Once when I was watching Family Channel, me and my sister were about to watch a movie. Right before the movie, the first episode of Phineas and Ferb was on. I was like "Hey, what's this? Is this like a flashback in the movie or something??" Then I saw it on the next day and that's when I started to like the show. The show, after the song "Gitchie Gitchie Goo" which I'd say was a mediocre song, apparently that's when they started to put a song in every episode. At first I've seen every episode so far, but then once when I took a nap, I woke up during a new episode "Crack That Whip". That's when I started losing track of the episodes. I'm looking forward into the movie "Across the Second Dimension" on Aug. 5th. Anyway, this has been my review on Phineas and Ferb.
  • Very good show for today's standards, but the plot kinda become repetitive after the 2nd (or 3rd?) season, let me explain...


    Phineas and Ferb, aired around 2007, seemed to be the long waited return of Disney Channel's former glory.

    At first, it was very fun and amusing to find a show on Disney without the "I've got a huge secret I can't spill!!!" plot. Phineas and Ferb's anatomy in the show is unique and creative, the personalities of the characthers have been barely or not used in any TV show I've ever seen.

    The main plot is about two kids in a normal neighborhood deciding to do things to kill off summer time, but they do all sorts of massive stuff like roller-coasters, beaches and such, Candace is you typical teenager, but when she realizes her brothers are doing all sorts of crazy stuff, she goes for her one and only resource; Mom.Perry seems like your average stupid or dull mascot characther every fan-girl falls in love with, he has a double life becoming a secret agent in order to stop a semi-evil scientist which always has a rather hilarious backstory to begin with, the little musical scenes at first were very, cute fun and creative. The plot always bases around two or more histories.At the end of every episode, Agent P (or simply Perry) manages to destroy Doctor D's machine, wiping away what Phineas and Ferb do, making Candace look like a loonatic in front of her mother.

    Now I shall conitnue on with my review on how this show is getting bad:

    The plots at first were a little more variated, but then it all became the same plot over and over again, with the exeptions of Summer Belongs to You and the movie, as some others too.The once hilarious and cute musical shorts became boring, stupid and bad sounding, it seemed the writers were getting out of ideas for the rythm, because it started to lose it's peculiar "touch".Another thing I noticed is that Phineas and Ferb suddenly lost their innocence (in the way of not knowing what they were doing was "bad") in the episode when they split Candace apart in two personalities, even Phineas stated "Why hasn't it dissapeared like the other times?" when their machine didn't get taken.The movie and specials aren't very good now either, you won't really lose much of the plot if you lose them, by some reason they unlinked that stuff to the overall plot. The movie was mostly just Phineas being angry at Perry for discovering his alter-ego, and the extra-dimenssional Candace talking about protecting her family, the movie it's not linked with the show either.

    Overall: If they can get better inspiration to keep this show good, that's fine, but if they can't, Fish Hooks will then be the only cartoon in Disney Channel, and that would not look good. Sadly.

  • It's a very good show for what it is - good humour, characters, plot and animation. But it gets old fast.


    The show is good but it gets repetitive. It's the same story each episode. But each one has it's own unique twist to it, so they're not all exactly the same. The characters are likeable, some of them more than others. For example, Buford is basically ripped off from the simpsons, and Baljeet is an indian stereotype. Candace is the main antagonist of the show, aiming to 'bust' the boys. She can be really annoying though.One of my main gripes with the show are the music numbers. I can't stand them. They're unneeded. The show would have been much better if they scaled back on the music. It's every episode, some cheesy song plays. The animation is nice and smooth, and colourful. Nothing revolutionary, but acceptable.

    The Perry the Platypus shorts are the main reason why I watch this show. It's a nice change of pace from the Phineas and Ferb segments. Speaking of Perry himself, he's a very unique and original character. A platypus secret agent. You can't deny that sounds cool. Doofenshmirtz is hilarious, with his wide array of 'inators.'

    The show has more or less the same kind of humour for each show. It's the case of 'it'sbeenusedbefore' syndrome. But it's still funny. The jokes are clean and understandable for most children.

    The plot is largely the same each episode, too. Phineas and Ferb build something or go off somewhere, while he has his friends over and Candace tries to bust them. Doofenshmirtz comes up with a 'inator' and Perry is sent out to defeat him. He does, and the boys escape trouble. It's a neat formula but it does get a bit tiring.

    The voice acting is good. The characters come from all sorts of backgrounds and have fluid, true to their nationality accents. You have to admit, Ferb has a nice voice.

    Overall, this is a good show, but it can get monotonous after a while. Children of all ages will like this show, and it's got enough content to keep adults amused too.
