Summer Belongs To Phineas and Ferb!

WARNING! SPOILERS! This post contains spoilers regarding the 1-hour special episode of Phineas and Ferb, "Summer Belongs To You". View at your own risk, or try not to look for that matter, if you wish to see the episode and find out for yourself what happens.

With the 1-hour special of Phineas and Ferb having come and gone, high-rated reviews as expected have come pouring in. So just you wait, Spongebob Squarepants! This show's gonna beat you out yet! Besides, who wants to keep watching a show full of idiots, money-grabbers, and cynics anyway? This show's way better, fans! And it looks like the episode packed a few hidden surprises Dan and Swampy kept from us. Phineas, Ferb, Candace, Isabella, Buford, and Baljeet all successfully traveled around the world in a single day arriving not a moment too late back in the Flynn-Fletcher backyard where they started. Of course, there were a few unexpected mishaps, snags, and twists along the way. One thing noticeable about this episode is that it seems to improve the relationship between Phineas and Isabella. And the puzzling irony is that while Isabella was devoid of Phineas giving her attention in Paris, they dance together in the final musical number, holding hands as well, while Phineas gives Isabella loads of attention. Maybe he was just happy that she got him back on his feet when he was feeling down and he managed to accomplish his biggest task ever.

But the biggest surprise of all is the significant improvement in Candace and Jeremy's relationship, the show's most anticipated pairing. That's right, fans! Your eyes are not deceiving you nor is this image false. Candace and Jeremy share their first kiss ever. THIS is the episode plot where Candace and Jeremy are officially boyfriend and girlfriend. They even say it, so it's official. It was originally supposed to happen somewhere in Season 3, so it certainly must have surprised Candace and Jeremy fans that Dan and Swampy decided to toss this in a little early. Also, many fans are agreeing that this episode marks the Season 2 finale, despite not all the episodes having aired yet. This television show is far from finished and it has the potent of beating out even the best shows from other networks, including Nickelodeon's Spongebob Squarepants. So what's taking so long?
