The Gurgy Hour
By StacyFan Hello, and welcome to the gurgy hour!
Today I present to you a..
PHINEAS AND FERB EPISODE REVIEW!
New episode came out. Let’s review it REMAINS OF THE PLATYPUS
This one is hard to explain. Let’s discus the basic plot lines and go from there.
Phineas and ferb create chees-topia. It’s utopia, with cheese! Monogram ends up going to it, even though he’s allergic to cheese. Candace busts, though nothing special happens in that plot. And doof makes perry his butter with an inator, and carl, who was at squirrel con, has to stop doof.
But here’s the thing…
The episode is done out of order.
Yea, you’ve ever seen that movie momento, where the movie has this thing of playing it’s events out of order? Yep, it’s like that.
Wait.. Last episode had a reference to inception. This one has one to momento. Both were directed by Christopher Nolan.. COINCIDENCE?!
Anyway, the episode starts at the climax (with the title card in reverse to boot!) and keeps going back until all if explained, and then it jumps to show us the end.
It’s a very fun way to play with the formula. The episode takes advantage of the fact that you have no idea what’s on, so they put as many odd things as possible
At one point I did wonder why they had the episode be out of order, since they could of done it with any episode. But I think it’s cuz it’s so odd, that seeing it out of order adds more comedy to it. There’s a lot of interesting things, and gags in this. For one thing, the new running joke of people not appreciating Buford’s comedy comes to a head when they actually laugh for once
And there’s a funny reference to agent T, first mentioned in Traffic Cam caper.
I also enjoyed the 2nd reference to “red herring” aka something you think is going to be important, but isn’t. It happens during a song with the line “is this herring red, or a plot point?”.
Gotta love how meta this show is. Also, this is the 2nd time in a row we’ve seen doof in his undwear. Make that of what you will.
Oh because I must mention this, stacy is MENTIONED in this episode. A step from not showing up at all!
I only have one small issue with this episode. Perry’s hate plays a large role in it. But for some reason it’s much small than it normally is. Just an odd thing I noticed.
I’ve run out of trivial things to point out, so I guess that’s it for the analysis!
SONG: two! Cheesetopia, a song about…well cheestopia. A catchy simple song. I like it. And theres “perry’s hat” a song about perry’s hat floating in the wind. Much cooler than it sounds.
MONOGRAM: hey look, it’s agent T! …what, too soon?

Baron Barbecues the Best: Platypus Day (No, not the holiday, the story by Peanutjon
(I must warn you, all reviews by Baron are in a negative light, and are still meant to improve your story. Baron will point out every flaw he can find, and purposely not find any good things. It is meant to be humorous and helpful at the same time. Do not assume you're bad, everybody has flaws. Baron is pointing out yours. --AgentGoldfish) There, if Goldy is quite finished after taking up FIVE LINES, I would like to get started. Basically, Phineas and Ferb make a holiday to celebrate Perry, but this causes Perry to not be able to fight Doofenshmirtz for the day, so Major Monogram has to hire the new agent, Steve the Chameleon to fight him instead. Meanwhile, Doofenshmirtz finishes off his Enlarge-Inator. It aired as part of the Platypus Day Weekend. Why he hired a new agent instead of sending another one, I don't know. Why did we not get the scene where he was hired? It opens up to Phineas, Ferb and Perry in the backyard. Phineas tells Ferb that Perry has to be the best pet ever, and wonders what it would be like if everyone knew how great Perry was It almost sounds like he's saying Perry needs to become the best pet ever... At DEI Doofenshmirtz asks himself where Perry is and Steve breaks through. You seem to be missing a comma. This episode reveals that Pedro's last name is Jackson and Arthur's last name is Kampbell, as well as Baljeet's last name being Jai. ...Jai is a stupid name. "Buford: Get a ride on the Perris Wheel, 10 dollars! (Enlarge-Inator beam hits it)
Buford: ...Get a ride on the Perris Wheel, 20 dollars!" Isn't ten dollars a little steep for a ferris wheel, especially for Phineas and Ferb? They never charge for anything! Also, your cast list is missing Baljeet, Steve, Pedro, and whoever that Arthur fellow is.
Behind the Scenes: As the Fanon Turns
By J. Severe
Behind the Scenes: As the Fanon Turns
J. Severe: As the Fanon Turns is essentially a hodge-podge of everything that I love. Action –
J. Severe: Humor –
J. Severe: And romance—
-J. Severe, Creator, Executive Producer, Writer, Actor
J. Severe: The idea for As the Fanon Turns came to me as I reading another of the Phineas and Ferb Fanon Wiki’s signature arguments.
J. Severe: I thought, “You know, this would be so cool if it was on a grander scale. If, like, someone took all the characters and placed them in an action-adventure setting.” And then I thought, “Hey, why don’t I do that?!”
-Total Drama Rox 97: Actor
TDR: I was actually one of the first people that JS contacted. He called me up and said, “Hey TDR, how would you like to play a deranged version of yourself in a show for me?” And I said, “Dude, why would you have me be a villain in your show, like, I’m not THAT evil…” But then, I thought of how cool it’d be to just let myself loose and be this epic bad guy.
TDR: At the time, it seemed pretty interesting.
-Agent Goldfish, Producer, Actor
Goldy: I always found the wiki arguments to be quite entertaining, so starring in an adaptation of it would be even better.
Goldy: It’s just that… I had a few issues… with the crew, so to speak.
TDR: I simply couldn’t work with Goldy. I mean, the guy’s a [censored]. The guy wants to take over the entire production, boss everyone around, tell us all what to do. I mean, what the heck, dude?
Goldy: He was quite uncooperative. I tried to negotiate with the man, but he just wouldn’t hear it.
J. Severe: Yeah, there was many a fight between the two on the set. Quite coincidental that they actually play rivals in the series.
Fossy: So, uh, like, I was, like, at home, like, one day, and, like, I was ringed up, like, by JS, like, and I was, like, like “Hey, what up, JS? Long time, like, no text and, like, stuff” and he, like, was like, “Hey Fossy, I’m making this mini-series-type thing, and I was wondering if you’d like to reprise your role as you” and I was like, like, “sure, as, like, long, like, my homie PLAP gets to come with, like, me” and he was like, “Sure.”
-Peace Love Agent P, Actress
PLAP: The whole thing was just so cool. It’s nice to be able to meet up with the whole gang outside of the internet setting, y’know? It was a really fun experience.
-The Regurgitar/StacyFan, Actor, Co-Writer
Gurgy: For the win.
Gurgy walks up to the group, holding a machine gun.
Gurgy: It was just so awesome and mind-blowing… The special effects work, the acting done by all of us, and the like. It’s all so masterful. I couldn’t have experienced a better… well, experience. It could have turned into one of those cliché action shows with a bunch of explosions and no character development whatsoever, but it didn’t, and I’m proud of that.
-Kuzlalala, Sound Chick
Kuzlalala: Speaking of explosions, I’m in charge of all that.
Kuzlalala: I also do all of the sound effects…
Kuzlalala: … and the songs, for which I draw inspiration from Danny Jacob, my idol.
-Team Doofenshmirtz, Actress
TD: I actually left the show mid-season, because I had other things to do in life, but then the crew begged me to come back for the season finale, and I decided to, just this once. Ah, how great it was. Seeing all of my pals again. As for the script, they did a sort of “return from the dead” sort of thing where all the other cast members that left were killed off in their final appearances, and have to be resurrected to help aid in the final battle with TDR.
-Not a Goth Chick 101, Actress
Goth: I was basically in the same predicament as TD, had to leave near the season’s end because my parents didn’t like what I was doing, but I was able to sneak out to film the season finale with ‘em and shoot a few scenes. Pretty fun.
Maddyfae: Eh, I left too, but mainly because I didn’t like how the writing was going, y’know? But after reading the script for the season finale, I thought “This is awesome!” and I got the same excitement I got when signing up for the show in the first place, so I think I’ll become a main character again, or at least a recurring one.
Scubadave: I had to take a break from my recently-acquired occupation as a detective (with my own theme song, “Scooba Dooba Doo”) which I got during the show – hence why I had to quit – but I decided to return for the season finale. While we were filming, Whitney Houston died though, so I guess I’ll have to go back to that.
-Nan the Cowdog, Actress
Nan: In the show, I’m about to leave the group because I have to go to private school (in real life, I’m trying to secure a homeschooling), but that’s put on hold, because of all the stuff that happens in the season finale – i.e., zombies, TDR’s force to be reckoned with, etc. So yes, I do beat up zombies with briefcases. And even though they’re CGI zombies added in post-production, I still enjoyed beating thin-air.
-Raging Blast, Actor
Raging Blast: Would’ve been better if it was anime, but eh, what are you gonna do?
-Dark Traveler, Critic
Dark Traveler: I got to see the ep before it premiered on TV. It sucked. Big time. What a load of crap. It was a waste of 45 minutes of my life that I’ll never get back. I hope everyone who was involved in this, sans me, dies a horrible death, and rots in [censored].
-PoptartPlus, Concept Artist, Voice Actress
Pop: Yeah, I drew the art for the characters, designed the clothing the cast would wear, and stuff like that. Oh, and I voiced a CGI poptart. Best role over.
-Ratluck1, Voice Actor, Stunt Double
-Walt Disney Company Representative
WDCR: We had to make sure that they didn’t mention Phineas and Ferb once in the show, otherwise we would sue their [censored] off.
J. Severe: Yeah, that representative was a mean [censored]. Wait, did you record that?
-Cupcakey, Actress, Shipping Enthusiast
Cupcakey: Baljinda – it’s the new frontier! Wait, that doesn’t even make any sense.
J. Severe: And now, to close this interview, singing chickens!
J. Severe: Lastly, if there are any members that I have failed to acknowledge in this interview, a free copy of my tour guide, surprisingly titled “J. Severe’s Tour Guide”, will be mailed to your house and arrive in 3-5 weeks.
-Daisy56, Who is She?
Daisy56: I like Mudkipz!
