For regular readers of my blog, you know I am a huge Phineas & Ferb fan. With that warning out of the way, this is possibly one of the most exciting DVD releases yet from the franchise, a TV series that I think is brilliant. A series that I think is fantastic for my son and his generation, 2 brothers and their diverse group of friends, 2 brothers who spend their summer vacation creating and inventing. I love these guys, they are great role models!
“After Dr. Doofenshmirtz’s latest “-inator” scheme accidentally removes the powers of some very well-known Marvel Super Heroes (Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, and Hulk), the heroes enter the world of Danville and team up with Phineas and Ferb to relocate their powers, defeat the Marvel Super Villains (Red Skull, MODOK, Whiplash and Venom) – who have also shown up to steal Doofenshmirtz’s power-draining technology – and save Danville from ultimate destruction! ”
Phineas & Ferb meet the Marvel heroes and some villains. OMG, this is brilliant!
And the all star cast of voices: Vincent Martella (“Everybody Hates Chris”) as Phineas Flynn; Ashley Tisdale (Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventure) as Candace Flynn; Thomas Brodie-Sangster (“Game of Thrones”) as Ferb Fletcher; Caroline Rhea (“The Suite Life of Zach and Cody”) as Mom Linda Flynn-Fletcher; Richard O’Brien (The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Ever After: A Cinderella Story) as dad Lawrence Fletcher; Alyson Stoner (Step Up 3D, Camp Rock 1 & 2) as Isabella; Dee Bradley Baker (“American Dad!,” Star Wars:The Clone Wars”) as Perry the Platypus; Jeff “Swampy” Marsh (“Phineas and Ferb,” Rocko’s Modern Life) as Major Monogram; Dan Povenmire (“James Bond Jr.,” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”) as Dr. Doofenshmirtz; Tyler Mann (“Modern Family” “Weeds”) as Carl; John Viener (Ted, “Family Guy”) as Norm; Maulik Pancholy (“30 Rock,” Hitch, 27 Dresses) as Baljeet; Bobby Gaylor (“The Bernie Mac Show,” “Phineas and Ferb”) as Buford; Jack McBrayer (Wreck It Ralph, Despicable Me) as Irving; Drake Bell (“Ultimate Spiderman,” High Fidelity) as Spider-Man; Adrian Pasdar (“Heroes,” “Ultimate Spider-Man”) as Iron Man; Travis Willingham (The Guardian, Secondhand Lions) as Thor; Fred Tatasciore (“Ultimate Spider-Man,” “The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes”) as Hulk; Liam O’Brien (“Marvel’s Avengers Assemble”, “Sofia the First”) as Red Skull; Charlie Adler (Aladdin, “Marvel’s Avengers Assemble”) as M.O.D.O.K.; Peter Stormare (Fargo, Armageddon) as Whiplash; Danny Trejo (Machete, Heat) as Venom; Chi McBride (I, Robot, Gone in Sixty Seconds) as Nick Fury & Stan Lee also guest stars as himself!
Phineas, Ferb, and their friends assist the heroes in a self-built shed, aptly titled the “Secret Hideout for Emergency Defense” (S.H.E.D.!). Spoiler alert, this SHED is a bit like the Dr. Who TARDIS, bigger on the inside! My other favorite part of this movie is when Baljeet gets Hulks powers. Of course the smallest friend gets the powers of the biggest hero! And do I need to share that most of the troubles after the super heroes power loss is from sister Candace? But we can’t hold anything against her, after all her “Squirrels in My Pants” dance from an earlier episode is a fan favorite in this house!
And of course, we can’t forget the silent brains of the operation (it was all I could do on my last Disney trip not to buy and wear a Perry the Platypus hat!):
