Tirades of Truth: Phineas and Ferb - Summer Belongs to You

So I have already talked about this classic show awhile back, but this was only their second hour long episode, Christmas special being the first. Most episodes are 15 minutes long, expect for a few which have run 30 minutes. You can tell you are watching a good show when you don't realize you have been watching for an hour. In fact, I was watching the clock wishing it was even longer. So much to talk about, but I will just do some bullet pros/cons.

  • hour long (duh), but it didn't feel like the story would be out of place for a normal episode.
  • watching Doofenshmirtz interact with Major Monogram
  • Vanessa joining the gang for most of the trip
  • Candace and Vanessa talking about Ferb's name
  • Perry, Major Monogram, and Doofenshmirtz teaming up to find Vanessa
  • O.W.C.A., classic
  • JPop song with the cast drawn in anime was hilarious
  • watching Phineas give up. Seems simple, but it was really well done to watch him sort of break down and give up.
  • Isabella motivating him to get up and find a way out

  • Clay Aiken and Chaka Khan was kind of stupid, but it was nice that they kept referring back to it since Candace wasn't there
  • Rubber Band song was too long
  • Candace becoming Jeremy's girlfriend, not too bad but wasn't necessary
  • poor Isabella

All in all a great episode. It's hard to list cons because it was so well done. I am looking forward to the next special/movie where Phineas and Ferb discover Perry is a secret agent and have to help him out. Sounds awesome!
