Phineus and Ferb...The perfect cartoon.

I always thought XKCD would love this show.

A story about Ferb and a former Hogwarts Headmaster (Phineus) wouldn't go over too well. The show Phineas and Ferb ,however, resembles the dreams experienced after watching Inspector Gadget and then drinking a NyQuil/Whiskey combination (The Inbreeding Cougher). Did I mention that I like that show?

I really like this show. It's so ironic and sarcastic, just the way I love it.

If you watch more than three episodes, they repeat the same jokes over and over again, and even the same dialogue. Maybe it's funny at first, but it gets old very quickly.

This show isn't meant to be watched in order, so much as, Oooh, it's on, I'll watch that. I really like the show because, unlike a lot of cartons, it's not dumb. It makes fun of itself, and it uses vocabulary and historical references that I find great (for example, listen to the song "It's a Charmed Life.")

I've seen it a time or two--having little brothers helps. I've enjoyed what I've seen, but I can't comment on whether or not it gets repetitive.

My step-sisters watch a lot of Disney and Nick and I can easily say this is my favorite. There are some really funny moments in there. I've seen more than a couple of episodes, and I don't think it gets too repetitive.

I find this show to be delightful. To be sure, it's the only thing I can stand to watch on the Disney Channel.
It knows not to take itself seriously, work within its constraints, and have a dang good time.

Never really thought about it, but when I think of all the other cartoons that are still under production, they all have those stupid "Potty Jokes." This one doesn't.

Also, I noticed that many of these other cartoons seem to be modeled after "Evil Con Carne" (if you remember that show) with their extreme detail to character appearances. ( For example, I don't want to see Billy's clearly defined rear every time he turns his back to the "camera.") And it doesn't rely on retarded sound effects (i.e. Random flatulence noises). It's been awhile since I watched cartoons, so things may have changed, but I doubt it.

This is the only cartoon that is relatively new that I would feel comfortable letting kids watch. (Aside from those brainwashing 'little kid' cartoons)

Definitely the best Disney show there is.
What I like is that it satires itself... and it acknowledges the intelligence of it's viewers, something most kid shows don't do.

This show is definitely the best comedy cartoon of the modern age. It's like the Animaniacs of the future, today!

I kind of want to see what Ferb could do without being bounded by the laws of science now.

...Actually, that may be too much for me to comprehend. Considering what he can do already, it would be like magic squared.

You are missing the point of the show entirely.

Its funny, but I noticed after catching a few episodes that I seemed to gravitate towards the spy sequences more than the rest. Call me simple.

I enjoy this show. It isn't my absolute favourite but I've watched almost all episodes. I wish I had a cool detective pet platypus :D

Well, aren't Phineas and Ferb a little young to be making a good show that I enjoy watching?

Why yes, yes they are. By the way, has anyone seen Perry?
yeah yeah yeah
