Phineas and Ferb

Friday 13 March, 4.30pm on DISNEY CHANNEL

Phineas Flynn and his stepbrother, Ferb Fletcher, set out to conquer boredom and make every day of their 104-day summer vacation count, in Disney Channel’s Emmy-nominated animated comedy series “Phineas and Ferb”. However, their older sister, Candace, gets frantic at her brothers’ extraordinary adventures and makes it her life’s work to tattle on them to Mum and Dad… but somehow she’s never quite able to prove what the boys have done. On every adventure Phineas and Ferb are accompanied by their pet platypus, Perry, who seems to be a docile mindless family pet, but unbeknownst to everyone, including Phineas and Ferb, Perry has a secret life as suave Agent P, deftly battling the evil Dr. Doofenshmirtz to save the world.

In “Interview with a Platypus”, Phineas and Ferb wonder what Perry is really saying when he makes his little noise, so they build an animal translator. Perry, reluctant to reveal his secrets, slips away before they can test it on him. Word quickly spreads through the animal community, however, and soon every animal in the neighbourhood has lined up to air their grievances. Candace, upset that her date with Jeremy was thwarted by his sister Suzy’s mean dog, mouths off about how awful animals are just as she enters a backyard overflowing with agitated four-legged creatures. Across town, Dr. Doofenshmirtz plans to flood the streets of Danville so he can sell Buoyancy Operated Aquatic Transports to everyone.

Then, in “Tip of the Day”, when Dad needs to know the name of the piece of plastic at the end of a shoelace for a crossword puzzle, the boys are amazed to find that no one seems to know what it is called. After discovering the word “aglet” online, they decide to tell the whole world about it. Candace can’t believe what a pointless, asinine thing this is to do and is further appalled when she sees people are actually interested in this information. Phineas and Ferb go so far as to create Aglet Aid, a Live Aid-type event to educate the world. Meanwhile a video of Doofenshmirtz dancing in his underwear is a hit on the internet, and he wants to erase everyone’s memory so they won’t remember seeing it.
