ok im gonna ramble so, under cut:
i really love phineas and ferb for multiple reasons, one of those being the sheer range it has. It has so many genres depending on the episode, its insane.
Hurt/comfort? the episode ‘Come Home Perry’
Apocalyptic? Night of the living pharmacist.
Angst? Doof’s childhood, the first movie, and multiple episodes.
Cool secret agent shit? OWCA Files, Sidetracked, etc.
Feels like your tripping on drugs? Remains Of The Platypus.
Medevial Fantasy? Excaliferb.
Historical? Doof dynasty.
Frankenstein? The Monster Of Phineas-and-Ferbenstein
Kidnapping and Attempted murder? Lost In Danville
Dystopian Dictatorship Angst? the first movie
Heartwarming with thrilling stakes? Last Day Of Summer
Awful Cishet nonsense? Act Your Age
and so many more. just look at that range! Most of the episodes are nice and happy, and then the movie comes along and smacks you in the face with serious stakes, even more amazing songs, great gags and jokes, and just overall awesomeness!
Maybe im just a sucker for dark alternate universes but its so cool! and the absolute heartwrenching emotional scene of the boys saying goodbye at the end was so well done! and the end credits scene was so heartwarming and emotional!!!
I have so many feelings for this haha
And even looking past the movie, just the entire show in general is so clever and amazing, and pretty dark in some areas (Doof’s entire childhood, the dream episode, Night Of The Living Pharmacists). And not to mention the characters!! Their all so well written and you can see them evolve and grow and learn over the 4 seasons!
Phineas goes from sarcastic, dark, and a bit rude to happy, optimistic, and still dark-humored. Ferb doesn’t change much but the show shows us that thats okay! hes never forced to speak or considered less important, literally in the first episode Phineas explains “ferb’s more of a man of action” and thats perfectly fine!
I just,,, AHH i love it!!
Plus the jokes are really good most of the time and the songs are immaculate!
Exceptions to all this: Irving, Albert, The Waggle Dance song, Act Your Age.
And since we’re here, i’m gonna give some suggestions for pnf songs i personally think are amazing and underrated:
1. Evil For Extra Credit
3. All of Heinz’ songs
4. Gimme A Grade
