Episode Summary

In this special episode, the boys and their friends try to travel around the world in one day, which is on the summer solstice, the longest day of the year.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • This is my favorite episode of Phineas and Ferb

    This episode is my favorite episode of Phineas and Ferb. I liked that it was a hour long special. It was great to see them try and go around the world in 40 hours. One of the best parts of the episode in my opinion was when Candace and Jeremy called each other boyfriend and girlfriend for the first time. I was excited when that happened because I was waiting for Candace and Jeremy to officially become boyfriend and girlfriend. The best part of the episode in my opinion was when Candace and Jeremy kissed for the first time. When I saw Candace and Jeremy share a kiss, I went yes, yes, yes! I had been waiting for that to happen too and was very happy to see Candace and Jeremy finally share a kiss. Because of what happened with Candace and Jeremy in this episode, it made this episode my favorite Phineas and Ferb episode ever.moreless
  • Awesome

    A perfect and wonderful episode. And the theme song is the best phineas and ferb song ever
  • I am truly sorry to say this because I know alot of users love this TV movie but I didn't like it so much. WARNING: PLEASE DON'T READ MY REVIEW IF YOU LOVE THIS 1-HOUR TV MOVIE "SUMMER BELONGS TO YOU".moreless

    I know alot of people love this TV movie but I didn't like it so much but don't get mad at me if you read this long review because I did warn you not to read it and I was being generous. Although, "Phineas and Ferb" isn't mean't to be an animated comedy cartoon and the writers do try too hard to make this cartoon to be funny, in my opinion, but this TV movie did have some funny moments which I'll get to in a little bit in my review. I respect everyone's opinion and if you love this 1-hour TV movie, that's okay and I'm not getting mad especially if you truly are a "Phineas and Ferb" fan because I am one of those users that do respect people's opinions. Now to get to my review, I didn't like this 1-hour TV movie too much and because I'm not that big of a fan of "Phineas and Ferb", I honestly wasn't so hyped up about this TV movie. Here is why I didn't like this TV movie too much and I did warn you not to read this so if you are don't get mad at me because I did warn you. Okay, first of all, there were WAY too many songs in this TV movie, it's already bad enough that every Phineas and Ferb episode has one song each and that's what annoys me about this show. The other thing that lowered my score was that while Phineas and the gang were in Tokyo singing that song "Welcome to Tokyo", it was so horrible when they all turned anime (ugh, I can't stand that). I love cartoons that are classical but this show just isn't a classic. Also, Stacy should have gone with Phineas, Ferb, Candace, and the others to the around the world adventure but she only talked in the beginning and they showed her again at the end but she didn't talk. Also, come one, another Candace wanting to be with Jeremy plot. I don't mind TV shows having that relationship stuff because I do like it but in a cartoon is not right especially if the kids watch this cartoon, that's another thing that doesn't make this show a classic. If only "Phineas and Ferb" was just a kids cartoon for all ages to enjoy instead of a kids and teens cartoon for all ages to enjoy. If "Phineas and Ferb" was like that then I would actually be a fan of this show. The song with Clay Aiken and Chaka Khan was all good until the ending, the ending was just horrible and plus my smile went away after that. What were the writers thinking of having Clay Aiken and Chaka Khan voice as themselves instead of just a cartoon part, should you really call this cartoon a classic?. What really offended me about this TV movie was when Phineas found a sponge and a starfish when him and the others were stranded in a desert which obviously it references "SpongeBob SquarePants and Patrick Star" and I love "SpongeBob SquarePants" in the whole wide world but I wanted to punch the writers so much for putting that on "Phineas and Ferb" and you call this cartoon a classic, I wanted to cry so much and it really offended me. I hate you for doing that to me "Phineas and Ferb". I didn't find that was funny at all and it made me cry for a while, yeah that's how much of a "SpongeBob SquarePants" fan I am because "SpongeBob SquarePants is actually a kids cartoon for all ages to enjoy and he is also my hero and I just love the adventures he has with his friends. Anyways, now that I got all of that of my system because I really had to let it out, I'll get to why this score isn't as low as I should make it due to that sponge and starfish gag. I thought it was funny with that Himalayan pants in the mountains, It was cool that Ferb and Vanessa were together and it wasn't the whole episode so that's why I kind of enjoyed it, it was funny when Buford thought Candace called him a "big fat ox" when it was actually the ox next to Candace, it was when Isabella's head exploded (that was probably the most hilarious scene I saw in this TV movie), and when Buford was speaking a language that I can't remember but Baljeet was shocked and then Buford said "Don't tell this to anybody". Aside from those funny moments, this wasn't very good "Phineas and Ferb" 1-hour TV movie in my opinion. I also didn't like it when Buford just kept laughing at Phineas because they were stranded in the desert and he said "I don't care, I'm gonna win", I wanted to punch Buford for that. My final complaint about this TV movie was Candace and Jeremy kissing while the gang was singing "Summer Belongs to You". Come on!!! the writers of "Phineas and Ferb" call this a kids cartoon and I bet you there some kids in this world that say "yuck", that's why I only watch this show when Disney Channel airs new episodes. Overall, not the worst but I just didn't like it too much. If you are mad at me because you read my entire long review about this show when I just warned you not to read then I'm not sorry because I did warn you and I didn't want to hurt anybody's feelings because I'm not the kind of person that does that but I had to put this on my review so I can let all of the disappointment on my review especially that sponge and starfish gag. 4.5/10moreless
  • Before I watch Across the 2-D Dimension in August,I'll review this.

    So basically this is my 3rd time reviewing a Phineas and Ferb episode,But this time,it's a movie. So it's about Phineas And Ferb going around the world with their friends around the world. They go on a rubber ball,but end up on an island. There was a part that spoofed Caramelldansen,which I thought was super hilralious,and the Spongebob reference with a starfish and a sponge making Phineas confused was also hilrailous. However,that "Boing boing" song was just stupid and horrendous. At the end,they sing a ending musical number which I enjoyed. But however,something annoyed is the fact that Candace and Jeremy became boyfriend and girlfriend in this episode,but after that,they were friends. Why? I don't know,but this episode was awesome,I loved it,and was basically one of my favorite episodes of Phineas and Ferb.moreless
  • Perfect, just perfect

    It the most significant episode I have seen. Bufords doubts made it much interesting and the fact that Paris was meant to be a stopping point,(for refueling), gave Isabella a chance to make Phineas see her emotions for him. It is also fun to see that while HE dosn´t understand ANY hint Isabella gives him in Paris, and there were a lot, he has deffendly understod that Ferb has fallen for Vanessa.

    Also Vanessa shows her love to her father by saving him from being arrested by Perry and Major Monogram.

    The island scene was also fun. Phineas finally runs out of ideas and gets a peptalk from Isabella, which gives him the will to continue, I also think that Isabella NEVER has been more close to reveal her true emotions for Phineas for him.

    It is also on time that Jeremy and Candece officially becomes boy- and girlfriends. That kiss was also certainly on time

    So Perfect.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (12)

    • In a flashback, Buford is shown to have stolen Phineas' bike when they were both barely able to talk, but in "Voyage to the Bottom of Buford", we learned that Buford became a bully when he was forced to protect his pet goldfish, Biff.

    • This episode shows that Stacy has many cousins in Tokyo, Japan.

    • When in Japan, Phineas, Ferb and the gang start to do the Caramelldansen, a looping flash animation showing anime characters Mai and Mii from the Japanese visual novel Popotan.

    • While on Mount Everest, Vanessa asks Candace what Ferb is short for and Candace says "I have no idea". This refers to the episode Vanessassary Roughness, where Ferb had mentioned to Vanessa his name was short for something, but was interrupted.

    • We learn Ferb can speak Japanese and Buford can speak French.

    • The slingshot the kids use to get back to the Tri-State area is a likely reference to a previous short, Swiss Family Phineas, where Candace suggests, "Why don't you build a giant slingshot and fling us back to the mainland?" and Phineas replies, "Not bad. Mind if we use that someday?"

    • We finally see Phineas do two things he doesn't normally do; get angry at someone, and go crazy on the deserted island.

    • It's established that Buford stole everyone's bikes. If you look closely, you can see some missing bike posters throughout the episode. A "Missing Bike - Call Rob" sign appears in China on a pole in the foreground as the plane bounces through a street scene. A "Stolen Bike - Call Rob" sign appears in Paris on the pole next to Candace when she first sees Jeremy. Whoever Rob is, he sure gets around!

    • Jeremy and Candace share their first kiss in this episode.

    • Goof: When the group passes a ship in the Atlantic Ocean, one sailor says he sees 5 kids on a baguette boat. However, there were 6 occupants.

    • Goof: When Isabella is looking at the sun setting, it is partially under the horizon. Then when Phineas comes, you can visibly see the bottom edge of the sun rise up above the horizon again, before rising away from the horizon line when they are about to launch.

    • Goof: When Phineas and Isabella run onto the stage during the song "Summer Belongs to You" Phineas runs to the second mike and Isabella to the third, yet in the next shot Phineas is now at the first microphone, Isabella at the second, and Ferb at the third.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Isabella: Phineas, what are you doing? You're putting your entire world view on the line. And for what? A bunch of bikes?
      Buford: And a bug!

    • Chaka Kahn: (bursts through fence in Ferb's outfit singing along with Clay Aiken) I believe....I believe we can! That's the measure of a man...
      Phineas: (to Ferb) Chaka Kahn. Nice!

    • Phineas: Hey, Ferb. Where's Vanessa?
      Ferb: She went off with someone else.
      Phineas: That's too bad. I thought the two of you...You know, a boy, a girl, alone, in the City of Love. I thought romance was a foregone conclusion. (Isabella becomes increasingly angry to the point of crushing her pencil) Isabella, did you say something?
      Isabella: I need a new pencil.

    • Isabella: (about Candace nearly kissing Jeremy) Don't worry, Candace. The week will be over before you know it. At least you got a love scene on a bridge.
      Buford: Love is a canvas furnished by nature and embroidered by the imagination.
      Baljeet: Voltaire, Buford? Really?
      Buford: Oh, I can't help it. Paris does it to me every time.

    • Isabella: (about Phineas' unexpected pessimism) That's not the Phineas Flynn I fell in- (stops herself) -to this particular situation with!

    • (After the kids fold Ferb's map into a giant paper airplane)
      Candace: Phineas, it's made of paper!
      Phineas: So is the Declaration of Independence.
      Candace: Yeah, but it wouldn't fly over 2000 miles of water!

    • Candace: Okay, I missed one musical duet between Clay Aiken and Chaka Khan, so could we please stop using that as a reference!
      Baljeet: It was very inspirational.

    • Phineas: (to Candace about bikes) There's one right there!
      Candace: Phineas, there's no way I'm getting on this silly, little tricycle!
      Phineas: Candace, we're in a hurry. Just get on the tricycle and...
      Candace: There's no way I'm...
      Phineas: GET ON THE TRIKE!!!

    • (Phineas and the gang make it back home)
      Linda: Candace, so responsible. Not a single call about the boys.
      Candace: Well, I didn't have international coverage.
      Linda: What?
      Candace: Nothing.

  • NOTES (3)

    • This episode is done without any version of the opening theme song. It simply starts with a zoom-in on the show logo (colored in red) and the episode title, which is colored blue with a brief singing of said title.

    • The agency Major Monogram runs is called the O.W.C.A. (Organization Without a Cool Acronym)

    • Songs: I Believe We Can, JPOP (Welcome to Tokyo), Rubber Bands, Rubber Balls, Bouncin' Around The World, City of Love, Summer Belongs to You, Follow The Sun, and The Ballad of Klimpaloon.


    • Back to the Future
      When the plane takes off from Danville, theme music from the 1985 time-travel comedy starring Michael J. Fox can be heard in the background.

    • Leekspin
      When everyone is dancing in Japan, Isabella dances while holding a leek, which is a reference to Leekspin (A.K.A. Loituma Girl).

    • Spongebob Squarepants
      When Phineas is looking for something to use to escape the desert island, he finds a yellow sponge and a pink starfish. He says "Look! A sponge and a starfish! There must be something we can make out of this! Oh no! That's ridiculous!!" This is likely a direct reference to Spongebob and Patrick Star on the above-titled series that Dan Povenmire previously worked on as writer, director, and other roles.

    • E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial
      The scene where Phineas, Ferb, Isabella, Buford, Baljeet, and Candace are flying over the neighborhood on bicycles is similar to the climatic scene from the hit 1982 film.
