Phineas and Ferb, the series, is a cartoon containing the zany adventures of two slightly malformed but good-natured step-brothers/inventors/super- geniuses. The eponymous duo get into all sorts of wacky hi-jinks like hanging out with aliens, unfreezing cavemen and traveling around the world. Phineas’s older sister Candace, Ferb’s step-sister, serves as comedic foil. She is constantly thwarted in her continuing efforts to “bust” them. By the time she drags her mother to the site of one of their outlandish escapades, nothing appears out of the ordinary.
