Parents to young children often come to despise the programs that our offspring love. Teletubbies. Barney. The Wiggles. They have their time and their place and that time was not now and the place was not on your TV/tablet/phone. But then there are the rare TV shows made for kids that aren’t just great for kids, they are all around great shows.
Phineas and Ferb is one of those shows and it’s all about to end. Read more after the break.
Disney has announced that the end of Phineas and Ferb’s long-running fourth season (which it has been in since 2012) will come to an end with a series finale on June 12. It has been an amazing run for such a compelling show: 126 episodes, 5 one hour shows (including an amazing Marvel cross-over), and a fantastic original movie. The fact that the show has only won three Emmy Awards is a crime.
Although the series finale airs next month there will be another standalone special focusing on Perry will premiere this fall, so at least we have one little adventure to look forward to.
If you haven’t seen this show, watch it. If you have kids, let them watch it with you. If they can be quiet.
I’m both dreading the series finale and dying to see it. Will Candace bust the boys? Will they actually go to school after summer vacation? Will they discover Perry’s secret life (without a memory wipe)? Hard to imagine what they’ll do, but it should be pretty amazing.
