Episode Summary

EDIT
The Chronicles of Meap (Parts 1 & 2)
AIRED:
It's another average, logic defying day for Phineas and Ferb, until a crashed space pod, carrying an unbearably cute alien, Meap, thrusts the boys into another adventure in space! Everyone has a different role to play, while Candace holds on to Meap by accident, Ferb is fixing up the ship, as Phineas uses the new cute tracker to find where their new friend is, to the slight irritation of Isabella, as he can't get what *cough* is causing cute interference, but of course, it all has to lead up to the big explosive finale in SPACE -ace-ace. Meanwhile, Doofenshmirtz has a new plan, simplistic in nature, but buried in an avalanche of backstory, oh dears.moreless

  • Great episode it has a little Star Wars and alien movie

    8.0
    An Alen name Meep comes to Earth just like that Alien Movie and Phineas and Ferb fixs his Ship and Candace gets the Alien and takes it some the toy are like parodies of Beanie badyies or Gremlins or something else. Freakin' Ferb trying to showoff at Doofenshmirtz's daughter Vanessa what the hell is his problem it's was so funny what he was doing to show off. And I like the part when Ferb said that no cloud that's a space lair that is so Star Wars then Candace and Meep do the same thing like that alien movie then something else happens and Meep talks why does Meep need a moustache to talk what the hell is up with that ?moreless

    When using their new Baseball gloves, Phineas throws a ball too high, and it hits an alien space ship, causing it to crash. A little cute alien named Meap comes out, and Phineas and Ferb decide to fix it.



    Meanwhile, Stacy and Candace go to a Bangaroo convention, but Candace's Bangaroo is ugly, so she takes Meap, thinking it's Phineas and Ferb's Bangaroo.



    Dr. Doofenshmirtz invents a machine to take all balloons out of The Tri State Area, becuase he lost his balloon as a child, so he wants it back.



    This was a great episode. There were so many funny parts, such as Ferb flirting with Vanessa, The Ride from Outer Space song, Doofenshmirt's backstory, and Mitch and the balloon.



    Overall Grade:100%/A+moreless
  • The best P and F episode ever. "Need a new friend it's: Bangaroo. Cuddly little round guy: Bangaroo." BANGAROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! P.S Bunny-bears are cool!

    A perfect episode. I wish there were more of the chronicles of Meap. You hear that Jeff Swampy Marsh??? I want more of Meap!!!!!!!!!!!!! This episode is hilarious and random but I like randomness. I loved this episode from the minute it started. I don't see why they don't make a sequence of episodes titled "The Chronicles of Meap". They could even make a Meap movie. Quite a lot of the reason I like this episode is that it brings a lot of the characters together and makes what I like to call a "Super Episode". Super Episodes rule!!!! And so does Meap.moreless
  • Seemed Epic

    This episode seemed more epic then it was. It seemed more epic because of the last half, when Phineas and Ferb and Isabella being abducted by Mitch. And then he plans to hold them prisoner forever. When all he wants is "Meap." This episode was different. It wasn't the funniest episode but it had a ring to it that not many episodes have. It seems far more epic then any other episode {at least any that has aired so far}. It also kind of seems like a different show, the whole sci-fi aspect of it. But I liked it too much too care.moreless
  • When an alien space ship crashes into their backyard, Phineas and Ferb decide to repair it in order to help its passenger, and incredibly cute alien they call Meap find his family.. but there's much more to this cute little guy than there first appears!moreless

    9.0
    I was pleasantly surprised by this episode for a number of reasons.

    For starters, I liked the sci-fi references (including Star Wars and even E.T.!), and Candice got a chance to shine here.

    The parts with Meap, including his battle with Mitch at the end were good too, and showed a bit of parallels with a certain platypus and mad scientist...

    Speaking of which, the usual sideplot with Perry and Dr. Doofenschmirtz was good too, and meshed with the main plot more than usual, but showed how Doofenschmirtz tolerates, and even respects his personal nemesis.

    I also enjoyed the "trailer" at the end, complete with voice over, which also doubled as a tribute to Don LeFontaine, the guy who did all those movie trailer voiceovers.

    All of this makes for one heck of an episode!moreless

  • TRIVIA (4)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Phineas: (as Meap's ship falls toward them) Hey Ferb, I know what we're gonna do today... RUN FOR OUR LIVES!!

    • Narrator: In a world... (slight pause) There. I said it. Happy?

    • (Doofensmirtz's machine attracts every balloon in town, which cause him and Agent P to cling to before floating off)
      Doofensmirtz: You know, on pape...(Sighs), this was the outcome too.

    • (Ferb flies past Buford and Baljeet in Meep's spaceship at superspeed, causing them to be reduced to their boxers)
      Buford: We must never speak of this again.
      Baljeet: Agreed.

  • NOTES (3)

    • This episode is in memoriam of Don LaFontaine (August 26, 1940 - September 1, 2008).
      "One man, in a land, in a time, in a world... All his own."

    • The episode is claimed to be The Chronicles of Meap: Episode 38. However, at the credits when they are showing the "preview" of another episode, it is claimed that it is episode 40. This skips episode 39 completely. It may be because of the fact this was a two-parter episode.

    • Vanessa Doofenshmirtz and Carl briefly appear in this episode, but have no dialogue.

  • ALLUSIONS (9)

    • Phineas: I can't define cute; I just know it when I pick it up on my cuteness meter.


      When Isabella frustratedly questions Phineas' definition of "cute", he explains that he can't define it, but he knows it when he detects it.


      This is a reference to a famous quote by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart who in 1964 during an obscenity trial, explained that he cannot define "hardcore pornography", but he knows it when he sees it.


      While the origins of the quote may be a bit racy and unexpected in a children's program, the quote has become ubiquitous and applies to all sorts of things.

    • Star Trek: Voyager
      The first tones of the opening music are the same as the ones of the theme of the science-fiction series.

    • Return of the Jedi

      Isabella: I am endangering the mission,I shouldn't have come.

      This is the exact same thing Luke silently says in the 1983 Star Wars movie when he and his friends gets near the command ship at the second Death Star (when he says that Darth Vader can feel that he is near).

    • Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back
      Mitch
      : ...and just so we're clear, I am NOT your father! (captures Meap in a small glass cage) All too easy!

      References to these situations:
      Darth Vader telling Luke that he is Luke's father.

      Darth Vader says "all too easy" when he thinks he has frozen Luke in carbonite.

    • "Meapless in Seattle" parodies the film Sleepless in Seattle.

    • The title "More The Meaps The Eye" parodies the tagline of the Transformers toyline: "More The Meets The Eye".

    • The opening music theme for "The Chronicles of MEAP starring..." is almost identical to the opening theme for Star Trek: Voyager

    • E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982)

      Scene: The scene during which Candace rides a flying bicycle with Meap in the basket is a reference to the scene in this movie in which Elliott and E.T. escape the authorities on a flying bike.

    • Star Wars: Episode IV, A New Hope

      Ferb: That's not a cloud, that's a space station.
      Phineas: I have a good feeling about this.

      Reference to these quotes from the classic 1977 movie:

      Obi Wan Kenobi: That's not a moon, that's a space station.
      Han Solo: I have a bad feeling about this!
