Phineas and Ferb: “Last Day of Summer” Review - AVClub

AVClub: Phineas and Ferb has been television’s most underrated treasure trove. Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh’s hit Disney show sat in pitching hell for sixteen years while the two worked on The Simpsons, Rocko’s Modern Life, and Family Guy, honing their comic skills right up until the day Disney decided to give their plucky show a chance. The show debuted in 2007, after about a decade of bland(ish) animation entertainment, and pretty much jump-started the current “Silver Age” of animation that we’re going through (along with Adventure Time). Phineas and Ferb’s contributions to the medium are so often overlooked–the fusion of A and B stories within a scant eleven minutes, the deconstruction and decimation of formulaic plotting, the sporadic-but-intricate layers of continuity (that rival greats like Community or Venture Bros.), the use of genuinely-good songs within an episode–and I’m happy to at least attempt to give the show a proper and respectful send-off as “Last Day of Summer” ends the series for good.

The story is too old to be commented.
