Last summer they showed me how to enjoy summer. For which I am grateful. They are Phineas and Ferb. And they have a pet platypus name Perry.
For those not in the know (ha ha!) Phineas and Ferb is a most excellent toon about two stepbrothers who are bored every day in their summer vacation. So they set out to create the most incredibly bizarre over the top inventions to while away the time. Which causes their sister Candace to go out of her way to bust them. All the while, their pet platypus Perry is actually a secret agent in constant battle with the evil Dr. Doofenshmirtz (who has his own theme song). Got all that?
This epic movie has our heroes traveling to the, well, 2nd Dimension, quite by accident. This strange place is ruled over by a different, smarter, Dr. Doofenshmirtz and the Tri-State area is in chaos. Secrets are revealed, fights are fought, escapes are made, traps are sprung, and the Fireside Girls prove who rules the streets. But regular viewers knew that already, don't they?
The Phineas and Ferb theme song, coupled with Squirrels In My Pants ditty, both inhabit my ipod. This trip to the 2nd Dimension brings us the song Robot Riot, which plays during a great climatic battle at the end. Turn the volume up past 100 and enjoy the mayhem as our young heroes save the world. Or at least the Tri-State area.
So if you don't know what to do to pass along these lazy summers days, pop into the dvd player Phineas and Ferb Across The 2nd Dimension. And be prepared to party!
