Worth more than the Emmy-nominated song.
11 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As Phineas and Ferb was making the transition from an interstitial animated series to a regular half-hour one, Dan Povenmire and the crew began transforming shorter episodes into segments and adding full-length episodes that pose as two-parters. The first was "It's About Time" and the second was this one. However there's much more that makes it great than it's Emmy nominated song "I Ain't Got Rhythm."

Lawrence Fletcher explains that he and Linda Flynn fell in love at the farewell concert for Love Handel, a leftover glam-metal band consisting of three members; Danny, Bobbi, and Swampy. Both were urged to kiss each other during the performance of their power ballad "Snuck Your Way Right Into My Heart." Here's where confusion might be sparked; Phineas and Ferb are step-brothers, yet it seems that Linda Flynn and Lawrence Fletcher fell in love apparently decades before any of their kids were born. However, in an interview, Povenmire made it clear that this was during the 1990's not the 1980's and they both already had kids. In any case Phineas and Ferb decide they're going to reunite the band as an anniversary present for their parents, and spread the word to all their friends. Needless to say Candace finds out about their plan, but this time rather than trying to bust her brothers, Phineas convinces her to help them.

The two boys find that Danny now owns a music store where he tries to teach music lessons. Upon their arrival, he sings about how the blues influenced his music and the history of rock 'n' roll in general. They join in, although they're puzzled by the psychedelic colors during his solo. When they ask him about it, his reply is "I have no idea." Sure you don't, Danny. :P

Bobbi Fabulous is now a hairdresser. Unfortunately, he's their Mom's hairdresser, which makes hiding the anniversary surprise more difficult than what's believable. His current music is much too disco for me, and Bobbi himself seems stereotypically gay, but the latter is less of an issue for me than the former.

Swampy, the former drummer is now a librarian. At some point he fell asleep in a metronome factory and is convinced he's washed-up, an assumption that anybody over five years old can figure out is dead wrong, and the two boys are determined to disprove. The song "I Ain't Got Rhythm" is more than just a catchy tune. It's a triumph, which is probably the reason it was nominated for an Emmy.

Oh, but what is an episode of "Phineas and Ferb" without the ongoing battle between Perry the Platypus and Dr. Doofenshmirtz? In this case, the doctor's latest "evil plot" is nothing more than a Sweet 16 birthday party for his goth daughter Vanessa, and the fact that her party is a little too childish for her is not as evil as the idea of tying Perry to a huge firecracker. Of course, they duke it out and Perry foils the Dr.'s plans. Vanessa's ad-lib of one of her dad's catch-phrases(among other lines) adds to the enjoyment. Because it's more than just the music that makes this episode good... it's the rest of the story.
