This dvd hits the shops today, and thanks to the lovely people at Disney & Porter Novelli my minions got to see it early. And they loved it. How cute are these little boys and their pet Platypus? I’ve not seen Phineas and Ferb before, but since the dvd arrived last week the kids have watched at least eight times over! The series is written by the guys who write for the Simpsons and directed by people behind Family Guy, so while it is very kid friendly there is humour that will make mum and dad laugh too. I quite enjoyed this, and for someone whose brain has gone numb due to having to watch ABC2 all.damn.day. that’s saying something. 😉 I found something appealing about every character in this cartoon, and I am sure you will too.
So a bit about the story… When evil scientist Dr Heinz Doofenshmirtz threatens to cancel Christmas by telling Santa that everyone in the wacky (yes I said wacky) suburban town of Danville is naughty and not nice, it is up to the step brothers Phineas and Ferb to set things right and restore Christmas cheer. So with the help of their trusty pet platypus Perry (who has my kind of attitude on him, I love him) and incidentally doubles as Agent P, a secret operative working for the OWCA (Organisation Without a Cool Acronym) the brothers set about saving Christmas from the evil Dr Doof. Tis the season to be naughty!
I think the DVD is good value as it includes more episodes along with the Christmas one, it also has lots of fun bonus features which my kids had fun finding and playing – especially the Dr D’s Xmas Jukebox. So if you are on the hunt for a stocking filler I think that this is a good buy. To watch a preview of the dvd click on the image above.
Now for some more good news, I’ve been sent two more Disney Christmas dvd’s to give away to my lovely readers – so very soon I will be promoting an awesome Christmas Giveaway of which these dvds will be a part of, so watch this space 🙂
