Summer fun lasts forever when you're with Phineas and Ferb, so pull up a beach chair and get ready to laugh yourself silly with 5 hilarious episodes from the smash-hit Disney Channel Original Series. Plus, get in on the fun with the exclusive Googolplex Mall Science Fair Games where you can create your own experiments! Super-smart and seriously funny stepbrothers Phineas and Ferb come up with unusually exciting ways to spend the lazy, crazy "daze" of summer -- like searching for pirate's treasure, traveling to Mars, building Greek chariots and hosting a Medieval jousting tournament! While the guys are cramming each long day with cool friends, awesome adventures and totally rocking music, their pet platypus, Perry (aka Agent P), continues to protect the world from the evil Dr. Doofenschmirtz. And, of course, their big sis, Candace, keeps busy texting her friends and trying to bust the bros.

When I need to do a little extra housework the kids don't mind to sit with Phineas and Ferb.
Cute and entertaining. Good for the whole family.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Comprised of shows selected from both seasons, almost every cartoon in the collection features a very impressive cast of voice actors and others known for their on-camera work. But series creators Jeff "Swampy" Marsh and Dan Povenmire (who also voices the neurotic, insecure Doofensmirtz) must be big-time Rocky Horror fans because the voice of P & F's clueless dad is none other than Richard O'Brien, one of the "Rocky Horror" creators as well as "Riff Raff" in "Rocky Horror" (and the Childcatcher in the London stage version of "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang"). Performing other voices in various shows are Rocky Horror alums Tim Curry and Barry Bostwick.
There are also many young actors from various Disney Channel TV series doing voices, most prominently "High School Musical's" Ashley Tisdale as the Dr. Bellows/Mrs. Kravitz-like Candice, the tattletale sister who is never believed my mom (Caroline Rhea). She even gets a solo song, "Queen of Mars," in a two-part episode. Other Disney Channel faves include Mitchel Musso, Alyson Stoner, Brenda Song and Brian Stepanek, as well as top Hollywood voice actors Corey Burton (narrating a film about platypuses) and Tom Kenny (best known as the voice of Spongebob).
Every episode of "Phineas & Ferb fulfills" the wishes of many pre-pubescent boys: it's always summer vacation, the two brothers can create practically anything, visit almost anywhere and always outwit their sister. There is always a parallel story in which their pet platypus, Perry, saves the world from destruction. Both plots usually somehow tie together. I know it doesn't make sense, but you have to see it to get it. The show's creative team really pulls off a rich, gag-filled maze of story in every show, which makes them fun to re-watch.
The episodes are as follows:
JERK DE SOLEIL
Candice's allergic reaction to parsnips gives her an "Audrey II" voice.
TOY TO THE WORLD
The boys create a new toy. There are references to Willy Wonka and searing, sad-but-true jabs at corporate "yessing."
A HARD DAY'S KNIGHT
The family takes a London vacation.
Phineas and Ferb create an army of Phinadroids and Ferbots.
IT'S A MUD, MUD, MUD, MUD, MUD WORLD
The brothers try to cheer up their sister with a monster truck show.
THE BALLAD OF BADBEARD
On a camping trip, the boys sail for adventure while Candice hallucinates after touching moss and becomes part of a Perry mission. (Parents note: Candice has the grooviest 60's-style psychedelic experience since Jackie Gleason in Skidoo.)
Candice is again compared to a hideous beast and Doofensmirtz unleashes an urbane robot monster named Norm.
LEAVE THE BUSTING TO US
Candice enlists a TV reality show crew to expose her brothers' latest creation: a theme park in the backyard.
UNFAIR SCIENCE FAIR / SCIENCE FAIR REDUX
Two carttoons edited together, with Candice eventutally being crowned Queen of Mars. A fitting finale.
The DVD also includes a series of interactive games themed to a science fair.
1. Jerk De Soleil
2. Toy To The World
3. A Hard Day's Knight
5. It's A Mud,Mud,Mud,Mud World
6. The Ballad Of Badbeard
7. Greece Lightning
8. Leave The Busting To Us
9. Unfair Science Fair
10.Unfair Science Fair Redux
The last two listed episodes( Unfair Science Fair, and Unfair Science Fair Redux) are two episodes which I had never seen before. The episodes are about Phineas and Ferb helping Baljeet build a Portal to Mars, meanwhile Perry is fighting Dr. Doofensmirtz as usual, but it is interesting, because they show Dr. Doofensmirtz first (inator) invention!
Also Candace is trying to get a job with Jeremy.
Also included as a bonus feature on this dvd is THE GOOGOLPLEX MALL SCIENCE FAIR GAME/ACTIVITY. If you are a fan of Phineas and Ferb as I am, I highly suggest that you purchase this AWESOME dvd!!!
This is a fun TV series, but it's too bad that Disney only has a handful of episodes available on DVD. We don't get cable, so for us it sure would be nice if they'd put out full "Season One" and "Season Two" collections, rather than just these semi-random DVD releases with only five episodes per disc. Sigh. I'm sure they'll get around to it someday in the distant future, but my kid'll have outgrow the show by then. (Axton)
The boys have two caring parents (surprizingly rare in kid's shows), a musically talented older sister, and a pet platypus - who doubles as a secret agent keeping the world safe from his evil genious nemesis. You can read other reviews if plot details, episode count and DVD contents are important to you.
If you know of the series, the best recommendation I can give is that this separates the kids from the endless barrage of commercials they are subjected to when watching these on the Disney Channel (not that there's anything wrong with that...). Since most kids in the target age group watch epidodes time and time again, you'll get your money's worth with these.
If you don't know the series, I highly recommend them to parents who care about what their kids watch; and DO watch them with your kids (at least the first couple of times). You'll enjoy them too.
This DVD contains close to 2 hours of entertainment. Although the format is somewhat repetitive (Phineas and Ferb build something ingenious and way-over-the-top item in their back yard while their sister Candace tries and fails to get the boys in trouble by squealing to their parents, while their pet Perry the Platypus, who lives a double life as a secret agent, foils the plans of evil-doer Dr. Doofenshmirtz), each show is inventive, fresh, and funny.
Other reviewers have listed and critiqued the individual episodes on the DVD, so I won't repeat that here. But I find that the best episodes are as funny as anything on television, and the episodes that are perhaps a little below the best are still extremely good. And the shows are easily watchable multiple times, and are still funny ... something that those of you with young children can appreciate.
While my kids are enthralled with the show, often one of my children will turn and ask me "What are you laughing at, Daddy?", so it indeed works for multiple audiences. Each show also features a song or two, many of which are so catchy that they could be top 40 pop hits (some even have my 5 year old son dancing, and he doesn't dance.) :-)
My more staid wife was getting a little concerned that I was happily watching a kiddie show, until she sat down and watched a few episodes. Now she's a fan, too.
Highly recommended for those with kids and even for those without.
