Registering a quality and dependable viewership immediately following its premiere just a number of weeks ago, Phineas and Ferb seems to have already earned a long-time place in Disney Channel programming. The series has already been renewed for a second season and will likely continue to bring audiences Phineas (the talkative one with the triangle-shaped head) and Ferb (the quiet intellectual with green hair) to those cartoon fans never wanting summer to end. Phineas and Ferb has accordingly performed as one of televisions highest rated programs with the Kids 6-11 and Tweens 9-14 demographics.
In an all-new episode scheduled to air this coming Saturday, May 10th at 8:30pm (ET), Phineas and Ferb will be joining the rest of television in their own unique salute to their mother as Mother's Day approaches. As is the case with much of the two boys' games and events, things get a little out of hand, Candace becomes jealous, and somehow somewhere, Perry the Platypus goes undercover to foil another evil scheme of Dr. Doofenshmirtz. In the a-part episode "Mom's Birthday," the boys are doing it all for their mother: breakfast in bed, awesome gifts, a flashy fashion show, everything.
In the b-part of the episode, "Journey to the Center of Candace," Phineas and Ferb construct a shrinking submarine so they can dive inside Isabella's dog and retrieve a sash the canine ate, but accidentally end up in Candace's stomach instead.
Also on tap is the May 24th, 2008 scheduled airing of a Phineas and Ferb co-marathon (which will run in conjunction with Disney's live-action kid sitcom The Suite Life of Sack & Cody).
The programming event will be called "If its' not one thing, it's your brother," and will span a day's worth of television to bring viewers "18 brother-themed episodes in alternating one-hour blocks."
The marathon will end with a brand-new episode of the animated television series Phineas and Ferb called "Crack That Whip." The episode will find the two boys and their sister Candace learning that old Grandma Betty Jo is a word-class roller derby skater. In the truest spirit of caring for one's elderly, Phineas and Ferb build a roller derby rink in their backyard so that Grandma Betty Jo can once again try to take out her much debated rival: Gretchen.
But as things turn out, Gretchen also happens to be the grandmother of Jeremy, Candace's much-attempted teen sweetheart. Meanwhile Doofenshmirtz wants to destroy a statue of a bearded man because it's apparently mocking his inability to grow facial hair.
The b-part of the May 24th installment will find the two step-brothers doing pretty much the opposite of what they've done all along: a day where they do absolutely nothing. In "The Best Lazy Day Ever," the boys decide to spend the day doing absolutely nothing, but Candace doesn't believe them, naturally, and ends up constructing something of her own. Also, Doofenshmirtz invents an ugly-inator in order to become more handsome than everyone else.
on Phineas and Ferb: Co-created and executive produced by Dan Povenmire and Jeff Marsh, the TV animation revolves around Phineas Flynn and his stepbrother, Ferb Fletcher, who set out with their seemingly do-nothing pet platypus to conquer boredom and make every day of their 104-day summer vacation count. Of course, while the boys are out having endless fun, older sister Candace does her best to get them busted.
