Phineas and Ferb: Animal Agents DVD Review
PHINEAS AND FERB: ANIMAL AGENTS coming to DVD February 26, 2013!
12 Adventures Featuring Perry the Platypus and His Animal Comrades
How well does anyone really know their pet…or ANY animal? Behind a cute and/or cuddly exterior there may lurk a cunning crime-fighter with a brown fedora, a top-secret identity, and a license to thrill!
Perry the Platypus, family pet of the Flynn-Flethchers, may seem like an animal who “doesn’t really do much,” but when no one’s looking and before anyone asks, “Where’s Perry?” he dashes down a hidden passage to answer the O.W.C.A. (Organization Without a Cool Acronym) call. In Phineas and Ferb: Animal Agents, Perry—aka Agent P—is joined onscreen by his fellow secret animal avengers in 12 different episodes of the popular animated television series.
- “Journey to the Center of Candace”
- “Traffic Cam Caper”
- “Bowl-R-Rama Drama”
- “Vanessasary Roughness”
- “Isabella and the Temple of Sap”
- “Cheer Up Candace”
- “Robot Rodeo”
- “Lotsa Latkes”
- “Agent Doof”
- “Where’s Perry Part 1”
- “Where’s Perry Part 2
- “What’d I Miss”
My kids were ecstatic when I told them, “Hey kids, I know what we’re gonna do today! Watch Phineas and Ferb!” They were thrilled to find some of their favorite episodes on the disc, like “Robot Rodeo,” in which many alter-egoed pets appear to thwart their nemeses at the evil scientist –inator convention, and “Isabella and the Temple of Sap,” in which we get the unusual opportunity to follow a minor character throughout her day. It’s also a bonus that my daughter’s favorite O.W.C.A. agent, Pinky the Chihuahua, is featured.
Also on the DVD are special bonus airings of the animated/live action “Take Two with Phineas and Ferb,” a talk show hosted by the inventive brothers that spotlights the many talents of their special guests (Cedric the Entertainer, David Beckham, Jason Segel, Shaun White, Miss Piggy, and Ben Stiller), and a few sneak peeks. And included with the video is a cool spy activity kit complete with paper binoculars, agent trading cards, an O.W.C.A. I.D. badge, and instructions on how to be a secret agent, all of which my kids promptly put to good use!
Disney’s Phineas and Ferb: Animal Agents (Rated TV-G in the United States and PG in Canada) will be available on DVD February 26, 2013.
