  • My final review for 2011: This episode is awful (the main plot itself)

    When the daily crossword puzzle brings one of the worlds most useful, yet under-appreciated inventions to Phineas and Ferb's attention, the boys set out to bring the plight of the shoelace tip, the "aglet", to the worlds attention, with their only obstacle being Candace, who relentlessly wishes to convince everyone that it doesn't matter, even when she tries to use their campaign to become an insta-star. Meanwhile, Perry's new mission is to erase Doofenshmirtz' viral video, however this time, it seems both he and Heinz have the same goal, even if Doofenshmirtz wants to take it to a slight extreme. To make my final review for the year of 2011, I decided to review an awful episode of a great show. This episode, in my opinion, is awful and terrible. The plot for this episode is ridiculous. No offense to what an aglet means. Also, Candace was super annoying in this episode. She just makes rude comments. One of her worst roles ever. The song is ridiculous as well. One of the worst song for the show. :/ The only thing that made my score a little higher was Doofenshmirtz plot. OMG, his viral video is SO freaking hilarious so that's the reason why this episode is not abysmal/appalling. Overall, a terrible episode of Phineas and Ferb. I'm sorry fans, I like the show and all, but this episode didn't do for me. Worst season 2 episode ever in my honest opinion. Also known as one of the worst episodes I've seen from this show. (posted 20 minutes before 2012 arrives) 2.5/10moreless
  • I have just watched this episode and i thought how could someone make a whole episode about aglets! but it was really good. phineas and ferb try to get people to know the name of a tip of a shoelace(a aglet) and doofenshmirtz becomes a internet craze!moreless

    At the beginning Phineas and ferb try to get people to know what an aglet is so with isabella and thier friends they have a whole celebration about it.What i thought was the best part of this episode was dr doofenshmirtz's video that was spread around the internet due to him selling a box of junk with he tape in.He then has everyone talking about it even candice! so dr d hatches a plot to stop people from laughing by erasing it from peoples minds with his latest machine.perry helps him and also dosent bother to stop him,but suprize surprize he deletes aglets when he trips over.I thought this was a great episode! and thiers also in case you havent watched it a youtube video of dr doofenshmirtz doing the rollerskating into the toilet.moreless
  • One of my Least Favorites

    5.5
    This episode is one of my least favorites. It is my least favorite from season 1. To me, the pacing was weird, people were out of character {especially Candace}. The only things I liked were some of Doof's sub plot and the Aglet song at the end. The rest was very poor and boring. I can barely sit through this episode. It's not just that I found it incredibly dull, but Candace was acting weird. And the pace of the episode. I don't know. I just really do not like this episode, definitely a bottom 5 or so, I think anywaysmoreless
  • Good episode.

    This is the first episode of Season Two of Phineas and Ferb and as the first episode i am reviewing of this show i will try to be unbiased although Phineas and Ferb is one of my favorite shows at present.



    The theme of the episode, the aglet, is one of those interesting quirky elements of everyday life that usually go unnoticed until brought into the light by something such as this episode. It marks a stark contrast with earlier episodes and their focus on grand devices and expeditions, but after all Phineas and Ferb do host a worldwide concert, so even though the theme of the plot is very small and unimportant, at least to Candace, they use it on a grand scale.



    The writing, well i'm no expert, but i enjoyed the jokes and it seemed consistent with earlier episodes. Overall a good episode.moreless
  • Phineas and Ferb spread aglet awareness, while DOofenshmirtz tries to delete a viral video of himself.

    7.5
    This was a decent ep, but not as great as some others, though. It felt like the writers were low on ideas, low enough to dedicate 10 minutes to aglets. A few good moments were included, though, like a nice inventive way to ask “Where’s Perry” by their dad asking “where’s blank” as part of his crossword puzzle. Good consistency from Candace to never learn the word, also. No good montage of putting together the concert, or a real feel for the end of the aglet storyline. The Perry-Doofenshmirtz story felt like it wrapped up nicely. Overall, not that great. Grade : B-moreless

    • Dr. Doofenshmirtz: Did you ever had an old box of junk and it's just been sitting in the attic forever and you think "I bet I could just get rid of this whole box and my life could go on completely unaffected by the loss of whatever may be inside"?

    • Doofenshmirtz: That video was so humiliating! I can't even leave my own evil lair. (exits room)
      Person: Hey look, it's that doof from the video! Ha ha!
      Doofenshmirtz: (reenters room) And that was just my kitchen!

  • NOTES (1)

    • In this short, there's a slight change in the opening theme that indicates the new season. In the last part when Phineas and Ferb are dancing during Ferb's guitar jam, the pictures that pass by the screen are clips from previous episodes.
