Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • This episode is insane. And I mean that in the most positive way possible.

    In yet another brilliantly whacked episode of Phineas and Ferb, the two titular characters help their studious yet completely mechanically incapable friend build a portal to Mars for his science fair project, while Doofy presents the world's largest bicarbonate volcano at aforementioned science fair while, um, wearing lederhosen. Expect a lot of eye-openers, double takes, and uttering the word "What?!" out loud. Also expect your jaw to be tired because you were laughing so hard. The episode really is that amazing.

    Now, I command you to purchase 'The Daze of Summer' DVD as soon as it comes out in February 10 and watch this episode on it!moreless
  • a very weird episode

    This was a very strange episode, with a lot going on and not much stuff making sense (or being worth watching). Why we followed Candace and the other girl fight for a job at Mr. Slushy Dog is beyond me, because it only had 2 short scenes and neither were really that entertaining. I think more time spent with Phineas/Ferb/Baljeet and Perry/Doof would have been better, giving them more time to develop their stories and create an all around more solid episode. The only interesting thing to see was that Doofenshmirtz' obsession with "inators" started early. I wasn't too impressed by this one, or the redux. Grade : Cmoreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (6)

    • The girl that Candace competes with at Mr. Slushy Dog is voiced by Brenda Song, who co-starred with Ashley Tisdale (the voice of Candace) on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.

    • Musical Number:Destroyed Dreams

    • This episode is available on the DVD "Phineas and Ferb: The Daze of Summer"

    • Baljeet received an A+++ for the portal to mars, however when he held his paper up to Phineas and Ferb, it only showed an A++.

    • Phineas and Ferb's ideas for the day's activities were:

      Build an underwater skate park

      Fly with rocket powered bat wings

      Teach Perry tricks.

      The last one is a reference to the episode Rollercoaster, where Isabella suggested they teach Perry tricks, Phineas makes the same comment in both this and the aforementioned episode, "He's a platypus. They don't do much."

    • At the end of the episode, Ferb mentions that Phineas and Ferb going through the portal to Mars was "another story". This is the lead up to the next episode, Unfair Science Fair Redux (Another Story) in which Phineas and Ferb do go through the portal the previous day when they had created it.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Isabella: You might want to go and check up on Baljeet. I was walking by his house and heard him scream: "AYIEE!I'm doomed to be an incompetent monkey for ever! ...ever ...ever ...ever". I added the echo part.

    • Man: Aren't you a little old to compete in this Fair?

      Dr. Doofenshmirtz: No, I'm not; see I'm wearing lederhosen.
