For anyone hasn't watched episodes of the Disney animated series PHINEAS AND FERB, it's highly recommended. It is a Saturday morning cartoon comedy that stars two irrepressibly inventive, multi-talented mischievous nerd geniuses (who happen to be stepbrothers), their vain, hyperactive, scheming sister Candace, and their pet platypus that happens to be a secret agent fighting an evil scientist. The plots are standard, and sometimes so are the jokes, but the characters aren't. One of the show's highpoints is the music, from Bowling For Soup's theme song "Today Is Gonna Be a Great Day" (who can argue with a power pop punk song with a killer hook that states, "This could possibly be the best day ever and tomorrow could be a million and six times better..."?) There's also the dubby dancehall of "Backyard Beach," by Ferb, the electro of "S.I.M.P. (Squirrels in My Pants)," and the fingerpopping faux-doowop, hip hop of "I Love You Mom," by Candace. While it's true that all of this music save for the theme is done by Disney's stable of teen and young adult singers and session vocalists (Mitchell Musso is in the mix), there's something far more enjoyable about this stuff than standard kids music fare. You might even find yourself laughing and singing along with this set.
