"Phineas and Ferb: A Very Perry Christmas" comes with a slip over case.
At our home, somehow "Phineas and Ferb" has become my 7-year-old son's favorite animated series. Every day he watches the show and interesting enough, I can hear both he and my wife singing the show's theme song and even my wife has talked about how she enjoys watching "Phines and Ferb" alongside with him.
As for me, I knew nothing about the show and I felt like a kid asking my son many questions of who is that character and that character and what is the plot of the series? So, this DVD was actually my first foray into the world of "Phineas & Ferb" and for my son, this DVD was in his words..."Awesome!".
Because truthfully, I just thought it was a special Christmas episode and then when that episode was done, there were five more episodes to watch. And then you get to the main menu and there are Easter Eggs hidden throughout the menu, special features and you get another bonus episode of "Phineas and Ferb", how cool is that?
Although, I may not have grasped the concept of why Phineas and Ferb's older sister Candace is trying to bust her little brothers or why there is a secret agent platypus, I realize that this series is beloved by many, and my young son and my wife are among that demographic who love this series so much that I hear them singing the theme song nearly daily.
The episodes I did watch were fun but of course, my son can probably give the best description of this DVD and he just had one word to describe this DVD and that was "awesome"!
As a parent, the episodes were safe and fun to watch and I have to admit, for a children's DVD, Disney has definitely released an impressive package with six episodes of "Phineas & Ferb" and many special features to go along with this entire DVD. I was very impressed by this DVD and I can definitely recommend this to parents or grandparents who want to keep their children entertained during the holiday season or a DVD for them to watch during those long holiday commutes.
Overall, this is a solid release of "Phineas and Ferb" which fans of the series can't go wrong with it and really, there is nothing I can even fault or say anything negative about because you get so much in this DVD release. For fans of "Phineas and Ferb", "Phineas and Ferb: A Very Perry Christmas", my son gives this DVD five stars and a very big "AWESOME!".
The show is hilarious for adults and children with plenty of Pop culture references (Star Wars, LOTR, Wizard of Oz), but no stupid humor like Spongebob. Poop and fart jokes are fine, but the humor of P & F is sophisticated without alienating it's audience. The show is also very low on violence, which is refreshing nowadays. Even a big bully beat down turns out to be a thumb wrestling match.
The music in each episode is fantastic. So much that I have a 45 song CD in the car that I listen to even when my daughter isn't with me.
This particular DVD is great with lots of fun extras. Any fan of the show will be pleased.
Because it is such a great show, I would have bought this DVD solely for the Christmas Special alone. However, this DVD is packed with lots of great extras.
The DVD cover mentions that it includes a bonus, not yet aired on TV episode, the Doof Side of the Moon. But in addition to that, there are also 4 other episodes:
- Interview with a Platypus
- Oh There You Are Perry
- Chez Platypus
- Perry Lays an Egg
So that right there makes this a good buy. Add to that some interesting behind the scenes bits, the jukebox-i-nator with the Christmas music from this episode, and few ultimately unimportant but cute easter eggs in the menu. And the virtual fireplace is actually pretty darn cute! So all in all, it's a great show, a fun Christmas special, and you get a lot for your money.
This new DVD contains the recent PHINEAS AND FERB CHRISTMAS VACATION episode plus four more: Interview with a Platypus; Oh There You Are, Perry; Chez Platypus and Perry Lays an Egg. All are great examples of how this series weaves its storylines with grace and panache, loaded with lots of quick asides in the spirit of other great comedy cartoons like Bugs Bunny and Bullwinkle.
There's an extra episode in the Bonus Features called "Doof Side of the Moon" preceeded by a 12-minute feature about how the creative team writes and performs their original songs and how one of their favorite episodes "Spongebob"veteran Dan Povenmire, comedy writer/performer Martin Olson, Jon Colton Barry (son of legendary songwriter Jeff Barry) and Jeff "Swampy Marsh" whose is the grandson of bandleader Les Brown.
I mention the musical connections especially because Phineas and Ferb is very music-generated and again, not just by committee-engineered pop tunes by by comic effect, from rock to big band, Broadway to Bollywood. Many of the songs written for the show have been released on CD, including a new holiday favorites album. Most of the music and songs came from the above team, with the able help of musical director Danny Jacob.
The interactive menu is really interactive, not just called by that heavily-used term. Clicking various objects results in quick appearances by characters. One in particular takes you to a video in which the show staff conspire to cover a co-workers office with post-it notes.
You can tell from the bonus features on the new PHINEAS AND FERB: A VERY PERRY CHRISTMAS DVD that the creative forces behind the show are relatively free of the interfering words: "Well, I don't get that joke and neither do my associates, so the whole world won't so therefore kill it dead and let me watch is fester, rot and bleach in the sun." Well, maybe not in those words, but I can just imagine how a song like "Squirrels in my Pants" might die in a corporate approval process.
Let's hope the recent phenomenal success of Phineas and Ferb continues to thrive in relative autonomy. But somehow even if it does happen to a degree, we can probably look forward to a sly spoof of the internal ordeal, so veiled it may pass over the tops of the Herman Miller head rests.
