Animation Monday: Meapless in Seattle

On Good Friday; fans of Phineas and Ferb got to see the sequel to the episode The Chronicles of Meap.  This episode called Meapless in Seattle was a very good episode.  The animators got into the act by the Star Wars themed opening.

A long time ago in a studio in Burbank, California. A ragtag group of animators made a fake trailer for a Meap sequel they never intended to make. Unfortunately, everyone wanted to see that episode so the animators were forced to write it and incorporate all these seemingly unrelated scenes. I guess the joke was on them, we now present… Meapless in Seattle.

Meap comes back to Earth and tells Phineas and Ferb to run from Mitch.  Isabella and Candace gets swooped up in the chaos and climbs into Meap’s ship blasting off.  Linda meanwhile was taking french lessons through a tape cassette.  Having the tape telling her to turn around and see her kids getting into the space ship was funny.

Meap had several emergency mustache translators including a southern one made in Georgia and a British one.  They go to Seattle which is raining to find a stash of Cutonium hidden underground.  At the same time Dr. Doof is in Seattle when Perry the Platypus meets him.  We also get to see the return of Peter the Panda as well.  Dr. Doof discovers the Cutonium and drinks it.  He then becomes a cute baby glowing in pink.

Mitch steals Dr. Doof and takes him to Meap’s home world.  The kids travel with Meap; and Perry and Peter travel together as well.  At Meap’s home world we get to see that Mitch is the same size as Meap.  Mitch drains the Cutonium from Dr. Doof; then Peter and Perry rescue him.  But then gets attacked by Mitch’s robots.  Then Mitch absorbs the Cutonium which mesmerizes Phineas in a hypnotic trance.  The Meap army breaks into the evil fortress but also gets mesmerized over Mitch’s cuteness!  The music from Meap’s world is very interesting by the way.  It’s kind of girlish.

Isabella pulls Phineas away from the hypnotic trance.  And he discovers that Isabella is the main source of the cuteness.  Isabella then rides down to meet Mitch and out-cutes him turning Mitch back into his original state and saving the entire Meap world.  I think many people thought Isabella and Phineas were going to have a love scene there.  At the same time; Dr. Doof, Perry, and Peter meet Balloony who is working for Mitch.  Dr. Doof convinces Balloony to destroy Mitch’s robots.  But one of the robots pops Balloony which saddens Dr. Doof.  That was one very funny scene!


At the end of the day; the kids are returned home.  And Perry fixes Balloony for Dr. Doof which makes him happy.  Overall this episode was a great sequel to the first Meap episode.  Lorenzo Lamas and Jeff Foxworthy provided great voice talents in this episode.  By the way the animators created another Meap sequel called Meap me in St. Louis.  Have a look!

The next Animation Monday will feature a new cartoon called The Legend of Korra; which premieres this Saturday on Nickelodeon.  Check out a sneak peek below!

Meapless in Seattle and Charity Auction

Well tonight at 9/8c on Disney Channel the sequel to the Phineas and Ferb episode The Chronicles of Meap airs called Meapless in Seattle.  If you have never seen the first episode; at the end they aired a preview on what this episode might have looked like.  Voiced by the late Don LaFontaine.  It was originally a teaser trailer and a joke but the fans thought this was going to be a real episode.  So the creators made it happen!

Tonight Lorenzo Lamas returns to voice Meap.  And this time a southern Meap voiced by Jeff Foxworthy is going to be in the episode.  Plus we will get to see what Peter the Panda has been up to.  So set your DVR’s tonight for this special episode!

Also this weekend; Bob Boyle from GeekLife put together a charity art auction.  Including art from many animated shows from My Little Pony, Ren and Stimpy, SpongeBob, Yogi Bear, The Flintstones, Dilbert, Phineas and Ferb, and many more!

The auction is in Los Angeles but for people here in Alabama who can’t fly out there; you are in luck!  The auction is also on eBay starting on Friday night!  This is going to a great cause as storyboard artist Joey Adams and his family really needs some help.  This is from the website:

To be brief, he nearly lost his twin boys over the Christmas holidays, due to a possible genetic illness. Two years ago, he and his wife Ginger, lost their daughter, under similar circumstances. The boys survived, but baby Ian is currently undergoing grueling chemo, while undergoing extensive genetic testing. He will need a bone marrow transplant, and his brother Henry may need one as well.

So everyone please head over to this link to see the great items that are available for bidding.

Please bid generously and good luck to everyone!  I wish I could bid on some of this awesome art but I have been unemployed for 10 months now and still searching for my 14th job in 6 years.
