Phineas and Ferb Final Episode

The Phineas and Ferb era has come to an end, and what a crazy and fun Summer it was, it was fun to see all of the cool inventions and machines that had all the geeks and nerds drooling!  The episode was called “Last Day of Summer”, and it began with Phineas, Ferb, and the crew flying some hoverboards.  They are just like skateboards, watch out for the rails!

ferb 1

In the entire series, you see Phineas so happy and optimistic.  If this was the last day of Summer before school began, I don’t think I would be this happy!

ferb 2

And of course, we see Candace who sleeps in, because she is a teenager, and teens love sleeping in.  And oh man, what alarm clock comes with the words “Bustin’ Time”?

ferb 3

And teenagers need to come with wagons, so parents can pull them around!

ferb 4

Because school is starting, OWCA is losing Carl, so Monogram has to do everything, including literally pulling the strings!

ferb 5

And we go to cue the jingle “Doofenshmirtz Evil Inc.”  And yes Dr. Doof, chocolate cake is good for breakfast!

ferb 6

Phineas, Ferb, and friends build everything, this ultimate amusement park ride that is mega and huge!  Remember everyone, do not ever end up in a mouth, unless you want to be chewed up and swallowed!

ferb 7

And good job Povenmire and Marsh saluting your voice talent!

So Doofenshmirtz builds this inator to give him a governor’s mansion so he can rule, begin the blow up sequence.

But before that, Candace discovers the do over inator, and Groundhog Day begins!

ferb 11

Both Doofenshmirtz and Candace have their days repeat.  She enjoys repeating her mother!

ferb 12

And she likes also going into song!  Boy, Candace would make a great villain like Dr. Doof, who tries so hard to be evil!

ferb 13

Anyways, the do over inator begins to cause rips in the space time continuum.  First to go, muffins.  Cue Derpy being sad!

ferb 14

And Dr. Doof’s inator works, how is this even possible?

ferb 15

Spoons and Capri pants are gone, so it’s time to eat like ponies!

ferb 16

And goodbye Phineas and Ferb, enjoy your cancellation!

ferb 17

Everything taken away in the space time continuum ends up in an alternative dimension.  Yes, those are spoons and pants

ferb 18

And cue the sad animal eyes, Perry the Platypus know how to act like a sad animal!

ferb 19

Dr. Doof moves into the mansion, and enjoys humiliating his brother!

ferb 20

And Vanessa and Perry are like pals.

ferb 21

This is what happens when any geek or nerd discovers something amazing!

ferb 22

Soon, Candace and friends joins the cancellation party!

ferb 23

See, Candace loves Phineas and Ferb, even though she wants to bust them so bad!

ferb 24

And this is how couples are like when they never have kids.  This was too funny!

ferb 25

The kids find a way to get out of that other dimension, this is what happens when a car is about to crush them.

ferb 26

Yep, Candace and Dr. Doof corrects the time problems, it results in some wacky animations!

ferb 27

And then, Summer is about to end.  Candace joins the younger kids to reflect on the Summer they had!

ferb 28

Dr. Doof and Perry reflects on their Summer as well!

ferb 29

The ending has the kids and main characters rocking out to the massive Summer they had, it was a good song to end with!  And yes, the show’s creators had to be in it!

ferb 30

OH NO!  Perry’s identity has been discovered, here comes the mind eraser!

ferb 31

The last shot of Phineas before his mind is erased once again.  In all seriousness, this was a good ending shot as Phineas was saying goodbye to the fans, what a good ending!

ferb 32

Well, that was a good last episode!  I will miss what Phineas and Ferb brings to the geek and nerd masses each week.  The show has been one of the top shows geeky and nerdy families watch.  The show has meant a lot to fans, including me!  I thank the show’s creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh for bringing us an amazing series and Summer!  Also thank you Disney for trusting the guys to make an amazing series!

The creators are now working on a new cartoon called Mikey Murphey’s Law.  I have full trust that this show will be like the style of Phineas and Ferb.  Heck, the creators have even said that there could be a brief crossover with Phineas and Ferb!  There is one more special called The OWCA Files coming this Fall, and I can’t wait to see that!  Man, 2017 will be a good year for cartoons!  Mikey Murphey’s Law, the Ducktales reboot, and the My Little Pony movie, I can’t wait for 2017!

My Little Pony 100th Episode!

Well, what a 100th episode! The popular animated series My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic just aired its 100th episode called “Slice of Life”!  And the episode was all about the background characters, that was it!  While the Mane 6 was dealing with a BugBear attacking Ponyville, all of the background characters were busy getting ready for a donkey wedding, with a wrong date! It all begins when Derpy Muffins got the date wrong, and all she had for an apology was of course muffins!

pony 1

Then we got to see the inside of what has to be an Equestrian version of a TARDIS. Yes, even Equestria has the TARDIS, and this episode gets more geekier by the minute! I loved seeing the inside of what has to be 1920’s technology.

pony 2

And I loved how Doctor Whooves was trying to get the attention of DJ Pon-3. I guess circles get the job done.

pony 3

Doctor Whooves is led to a bowling alley to try to get his shirt tailored. Rarity is too busy dealing with a BugBear you know. We see Doctor Whooves trying to do some math in his head about what is the best way to knock down bowling pins. The geeks and nerds were passing out at this moment!

pony 4

Another thing I liked about this episode was during the transition scenes, we saw the Mane 6 battling the BugBear. I think they needed some help! I mean, the other princesses were too busy with a wedding.

pony 5

And as a reminder, do not ever request flowers for a wedding on the same day as the wedding, it will result in passed out horses!

pony 6

Then, we got to see what has to be the Equestrian version of James Bond. We learned that Bon Bon or Sweetie Drops was a secret agent working for the Equestrian royalty. This really made Lyra Heartstrings upset. The technology in that briefcase was also like 1920’s technology in our world. I guess this confirms that the technology in Equestria is the same as what you found in the 1920’s here on Earth.

pony 7

And while Bon Bon was going to hide, what was Pinkie Pie doing?

pony 8

Then we were sent to the spa, and we saw Stephen Magnet the sea monster. We have not seen him since the very first episodes. We need to see him more often!

pony 9

And then we got to see DJ Pon-3 and Octavia Melody that actually live together at the same house. This had many in the My Little Pony fandom geeking out! I can see why they live together; they both make some really good music!

pony 10

DJ Pon-3 and Octavia go out flying on this DJ equipment machine, and they scoop up all the background characters in Ponyville. Hey, I guess Ponyville has electricity, even though you don’t see any power lines. I mean, how does a video game run without electricity, Button Mash would be sad!

pony 11

Then the background characters go flying in the air. OH MY GOSH, THE WRITERS AND ANIMATORS WERE FREAKING OUT! I loved this scene!

pony 12

While everyone was flying, we heard a narrator talk about the meaning of a cutie mark in Equestria. I thought this was a good transition scene while everyone was freaking out. I am guessing Gummy was freaking out in his head.

pony 13

Now we are at the wedding, everyone landed safety. And we saw even more background characters. Even with the Royal Sisters re-united, they still have their arguments.

pony 14

And Shining Armor and Princess Cadance look cute while Shining was crying like a baby!

pony 15

Before the wedding, Bon Bon and Lyra make up to each other. Remember kids, keeping secrets is not the right thing to do, always tell the truth!

pony 16

And to make sure only the background characters are the main topic in this episode, Derpy Muffins makes sure the Mane 6 are nowhere to be seen and locked out!

pony 17

I then loved how the Ponyville mayor talks about how the background characters are just as important in any situation just as the main characters are important. Remember, every pony person is the star of their own story. Man, Shining Armor and Cadance are lovely!

pony 18

And you can tell that the Royal Sisters love each other!

pony 19

And kiss donkeys! What a sweet moment!

pony 20

Even though the Mane 6 were locked outside, they saw the wedding. And I liked the ending, were Twilight says they are lucky to live in Ponyvile. Awww, cute friends hugging shot!  (except Rainbow Dash)

pony 21

Wow, I thought this was a great episode! The writers and animators did a great job incorporating all of the background characters to be the main characters for one episode. They did great with the transition scenes showing what the main characters were doing during this episode. And of course, all of the geeky and nerdy references in this episode alone topped everything!

For those of you who thinks watching a cartoon about colorful equines learning the lessons of friendship is stupid, give this episode a shot, you might be going back to see what the other 99 episodes were all about! Great job staff at Hasbro Studios and DHX Media!
