i've been watching this show with my kids the last few months andi have to admit i laugh every time i watch it. its pretty hysterical!

but...is anyone else totally bugged by the aloof mother who is always too busy getting a mani/pedi to pay attention to her kids. and does anyone else think that explains boy-obsessed, completely lacking self-confidence neurotic daughter ? LOL

theres also a bit of ethnic stereotyping which i also feel guilty for laughing at...

Bring back the old MDC

Candice annoyed me at first but there are enough episodes where she gets it that I've come to adore her. Have you seen the time travel one? How about the one where she wins the monster truck rally?

I love P&F. The music is great, and the boys are so kind.

I love Phineas and Ferb. My husband and I have even been guilty of watching when the kids aren't around.

Doodlebug recently stopped watching it, and we've been trying to encourage him to watch it again, LOL (when we watch TV as a family). I've listened to the soundtrack in my car without the kids on occasion.

I have several episodes on my iPod in addition to the entire soundtrack! I especially love the episode where the boys get the band Love Handle back together for their parent's anniversary!

We are big fans. Love love love "Bees burb" (as dd called it for the longest time). We listen to the soundtrack all the time in the car. I love Candace, she's a normal teen girl, just trying to figure it all out.

I think Come Home Perry is my favorite episode.

Dh and I often find ourselves quoting him.

We all enjoy P&F.

We love P & F here too. I think DH and I love it more than DS, lol. I love all the throwback jokes to the way cartoons were when we were kids.

Huge P&F fans here, too. I'm a big fan of the "Aglet" episode w/ Doofenshmirz as the star of the embarrassing viral video, as well as the "Squirrels in my pants" episode.

We love P&F as well. Candace was a bit irritating at first, but I've grown to love her. I particularly love when she says 'peace' all odd. :

This is the best cartoon ever. Baljeit (sp?) is my most favorite.

There are some minor aspects of it that I have slight issues with, but compared to most of the other junk we could be watching, P&F is pretty high quality.
I love that they spend time coming up with creative ways to pass the time and teach or learn something in the process.

"There's a 104 days of summer vacation and school comes along just to end it...." "MoooooM! Phineas and Ferb are making a title sequence!!!"

There are so many episodes that rock....and I love how several of them tie into each other and tell the back story of what you didn't see in the original.

S-to the- I-to the- M-to the-P!!!

Because of P&F we will never forget what the tip of a shoe lace is called!! That's priceless knowledge!!
