Hail Doofania! Is one of my favourite episodes because it shows how much of their identities and worldview teenagers attach to their clothing.
That’s why when Vanessa and Candace accidentally switch clothing, the other characters’ story arcs flip too.
There’s the obvious matter of Phineas and Ferb building an -inator, and saying how it will “cover the entire Tri-State area” with a rainbow.
Then there’s Doof building something ridiculously large that Vanessa considers “proof” to finally “bust” her dad for being evil.
Then there’s the entire thing disappearing indirectly because of Phineas and Ferb’s -inator; it caused a fisherman to get distracted and blow Doofania’s inner tube out.
There’s also the more subtle matter of Perry’s collar, which is essentially a trap that prevents him from doing what he needs to do.
Ultimately, Perry is the one who destroys Phineas and Ferb’s -inator by hitting the self-destruct button, with the boys questioning why they put in a self-destruct button in the first place- something that happens with Doof quite often.
There’s also the parallel of Doof saying “Look at who decided to show up”, which is basically a version of “There you are Perry”
What I found relatively more interesting was that the boys’ goal was fundamentally misguided, as Isabella meant that she’d never seen a unicorn before, not a rainbow.
This is an interesting parallel, which I think points towards Doof’s mission to take over the Tri-State area being misguided, and that what he actually wants is love and acceptance.
Another equally interesting observation is when Vanessa complains to her friend about her clothes being switched, saying “how many evil scientists’ daughters do you see...”, but being cut off by seeing that her father was up to something.
This is something that we usually see Candace do- complaining on the phone when she suddenly sees her brothers doing something bustable.
But what intrigues me is that Vanessa associates her clothing with being an evil scientist’s daughter, that she perhaps felt it was more appropriate to be goth if her father was already “evil”.
This hints towards how closely interlinked our identities are with our parents’, especially when we’re younger.
We also see Candace becoming more overtly confident with herself, something that is not usually seen, and implies that wearing different clothing makes her feel different too.
Overall, it’s an episode with a lot of fun and introspection and I love it.
if you wanted to know how we're doing in the UK, our piece of shit prime minister couldn't be bothered to spend 5 hours in a car, so he took a plane from london to cornwall for the g7 climate summit. this is comic book supervillain behaviour.
he has broken the law at least twice in post, and has said that he would rather 'let the bodies pile high' than introduce a new lockdown in england, despite the delta variant now running rampant here. cases are rising and despite having almost died from covid himself, boris and his corrupt friends don't care about the deaths they have already caused.
if the UK had locked down earlier, had a functioning test and trace system, but most importantly had politicians with some fucking integrity, we would not be in this mess. it feels like every day we hear about another illegal act a tory cabinet member has committed, and they always get away with it. there are no consequences for their corrupt actions. remember how boris johnson used taxpayer money to refurbish no. 10? he's the one who gets to decide whether or not he broke ministerial code. in what world is that fair?
and let's not pretend that labour is doing much better. starmer is a disgusting excuse for a leader of the opposition, considering he does no opposing of any kind. i hope everyone who ever wrote a smear piece about jeremy corbyn receives all kinds of bad karma, because he's just about the only politician here i trust.
if you live in the north, consider voting for the northern independence party next election. they have brilliant ideas and a very strong manifesto. i'm on the verge of calling labour a lost cause.
just please don't vote tory, ukip, or any other fascist bullshit party. over 100,000 people have died here already, and if your vote allows the corrupt to stay in power, i will consider their blood on your hands too.
The only people who are allowed to call Candace "Candy" are Jeremy, Stacy, and her mom.
Ferb was the first one to do it (good sounds 😏) but she hated it so now he doesn’t say her name or anything (Candace doesn’t mind him doing it anymore but absolutely hates Phineas doing it so uhhh yeah)
