The tale of two brothers spending thier summer day...Rating: 1 likes, 1 dislikes
I was all but giving up on Disney channel and then this show came on and I was given new hope with the first episode "rollercoaster" and I knew this was going to be big. Its the classic tale of trying to find ways to spend your summer vacation that isn't just the ordinary stuff but instead building a giant rollercoaster, creating a new season Swinter, or its less popular name Wummer, trying to find a mummy, or even trying to build a giant icecream sundae for a friend. Meanwhile as these things go on there are two side stories that sort of overlap with Phineas and Ferbs fun and that is Candace, thier older sister, trying to ruin thier plans by telling mom. Meanwhile, Perry, the family's pet platypus, leads a double-life as a secret agent who foils the evil plots of a mad scientist named Dr. Doofenschmirtz (Dan Povenmire). This provides a side story that runs along side the main plot. No one seems to be aware that Perry lives this double-life. The Agent P sub-plot usually serves as a running gag as Perry's missions intertwine with the boys plan which ends with Perry usually clearing all of the evidence of the boys activities.
I like this show due to the concepts that come along with it because this brings me back to the show Animaniacs and Rugrats.
Animaniacs because of the dog and baby skit in which the baby breaks free from her pin or her restraints and heads out on adventure while the dog keeps her from harm. At the end the dog gets the blame as the baby comes back right when the mom returns. Ok lady. Rugrats because of many of the same aspects of above in which the babies break free from thier pin while Gramdpa is aspleep and go on adventures. Returning before anyone is the wiser
There are a few negative aspects of this show and thats the fact that its only a filler show at the end or beginning of disney movies and that it only runs 10-15 minutes. It needs to have its own block on the lineup and consist of 30 minutes, 2 episodes.
That said its a great show and worth watching no matter what the age may be because everyone can relate to trying to find something to do to make the summer memorable.
Like it says:
"There's a 104 days of Summer Vacation,
And school comes along just to end it.
So the annual problem for our generation,
Is finding a good way to spend it." - words to live by.
Perfect 10 out of 10.
