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 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.
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"
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.
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.
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.
Phineas and Ferb reminds me of a show from the 90's or early 00's. It's not as good as many of the classics from that back then, but it shares the same honest nature. Most of today's shows try to be as outlandish as possible and throw in as much potty humor and cheap gross-out jokes as possible. The writers of today's productions honestly seem as stupid as their shows. It's refreshing to see a cartoon that actually tries to be a good show.
Phineas and Ferb has good intentions and is a very well meaning series. The show is never hilarious, but it's usually entertaining and has a good sense of humor. Phineas and Ferb are both good characters that work well with one another. Some of the other characters, such as Perry the Platypus and Dr. Doofenshmirtz, are even more entertaining.
I'm glad to see that not all cartoon shows have gone to the dogs. Finally a decent show with good writing, decent characters and a good sense of humor. There is still hope for the cartoon world.
