iTunes gets a head start with Phineas and Ferb

On iTunes, apparently a Volume 7 has started with the paired episodes "Lotsa Latkes" and "Ferb Latin", and yet their Volume 6 is still incomplete with only twelve episodes. It makes me wonder what the last episode or paired episodes are gonna get selected - possibly "Doof Dynasty" and "The Tri-Stone Area", paired episodes that take place in alternate worlds. Not to mention "Bullseye" and "Escape from Phineas Tower" have aired, yet the episodes they are paired with, "Perry the Actorpus" and "Remains of the Platypus" have still not aired, with no signs of air dates whatsoever. In cases like these, now we have to wonder... what's going on?

Exceed the Yu-Gi-Oh! Card Maker by making Xyz!

Yu-Gi-Oh! Card Maker, get ready to step aside! There's a new online card creator in town, and it can make new Xyz monsters! It's the Card Creator section of YuGiCo and like Yu-Gi-Oh! Card Maker, it requires users to make an account in order to save their work online, but if you're just visiting and want to make cards the easy way, just save the image when you preview your custom creation and it'll work out just as fine. It is recommended that your card image is no bigger than 288 x 288 pixels (an image can easily be fixed in an image-editing program), create your card as whatever tickles your fancy, preview, save the image to your hard drive and you're good! Finally, Xyz monsters can be created in a fancy new way! Sure, the card images you create are bigger in size and a few things still can't quite be modified, but at least the quirks aren't worth quibbling over. This card image is my example (I know it's the popular Miku Hatsune, but meh). What will yours be?

The Gentleman Treatment

Recently, a shortened recording of the Phineas and Ferb episode "Doof Dynasty" has surfaced on the Internet and even though it is not in English language just yet, it seems that fans were anxious to see it - and most likely for the anticipated P.I. business, which should be left to private investigators, by the way. The thing is, as fun as it is to get hopes up for Phineas and Isabella pairing up, time and time again I must stress that they put too much of their hopes on the line, so that when the great disappointment comes to pass, they will all be crushed and bummed out severely. Although, viewers who saw the episode, or the biggest chunks of it, have already expressed their delight over all the Phineas and Isabella stuff that apparently happens in the episode, which in my opinion I see as nothing special. This is, after all, another world, where anything is possible and does not stay true to the Phineas and Ferb storyline. So, canonically, the events of "Doof Dynasty" would be considered null and void, lest anyone can prove anything otherwise. Good day.

Comin' at Ya, Sonic Speed!

After a long absence, Sonic the Hedgehog returns to Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade with a new gigantic balloon. He appeared today in the 85th annual parade to celebrate his 20th anniversary and the release of his latest adventure video game, Sonic Generations. No surprise that this time, the blue blur was first in line ahead of the other giant balloons. He is the world's fastest hedgehog, after all.

Pinocchio's World At Last!

Pinocchio's real world, Prankster's Paradise, if you remember was cut from Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days due to data restrictions, but now it seems that in the upcoming Japanese game Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, the world is finally coming alive! Guess it still counts as a new Disney world. It's just that the characters will not be new of anything. And it seems that Pinocchio is still a wooden puppet instead of being a real boy like he was intended to be in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days and half donkey as seen in Disney's feature film. Guess there will be more on this as the game comes closer to its eventual release. Psyched yet?

Christmas Covers

Get ready for a third Phineas and Ferb Christmas, and this time it's not the original special that's gonna be the highlight. Instead, a new special episode, "Phineas and Ferb's Family Christmas Special", is set to air December 2nd on Disney Channel. Here's an article for a source. It looks as though Kelly Clarkson is set for a guest appearance as herself in the episode and the songs include three classic Christmas carols straight from the Phineas and Ferb Holiday Favorites soundtrack, "Let it Snow", performed by Isabella, "Good King Wenceslas", performed by Baljeet and Buford (although it's pretty much as good as Buford's version of the song, not at all like the original, which may explain how he ended up on Santa's naughty list), and of course "We Wish You A Merry Christmas", performed by the cast of Phineas and Ferb (again, some altered lyrics, Phineas and Ferb style). Hmm... who knew? I'm sure fans have been dying to see Isabella's cover of "Let it Snow" animated since last year, but chances are, it's not gonna be what we think. And even if it is, it'll probably be nothing more than a figment. Pfft.

So What's Wrong With Simple Distribution?

As you Pokémon fans may know, another Victini is being distributed via Wi-Fi, this time in light of the two movies, one with Reshiram and one with Zekrom. Now how are those without Wi-Fi gonna manage? I mean, it's not like everyone who has a DS has Wi-Fi. This isn't because the 3DS is about to take over, is it? There was one event where players could download via wireless connection with Black and White for the first time, so why not this time? Is Victini really that overpowered? I myself do not have Wi-Fi, so this is probably worth complaining over.

Go Fourth

Read this, fans!

Looks like there's just no stopping these stepbrothers now! Candace couldn't and now it seems like Phineas and Ferb are dodging a whole lot more and fighting their way to the top of their game!


Right, so how many of you went to this MangaFox and read the entirety of Kilala Princess, that manga that crossed anime/manga with the power of the original six Disney Princesses? You have to wonder how Kilala would react if she learned there were ten now, with an eleventh on the way. But never mind that. Here's the challenge I offer ye. How many similarities can you find between Kilala Princess and Kingdom Hearts? Name them and compare them and post them as comments on this post, if you please. This ought to be fun...

Waiting for the Feeling of Suspension

Good lord! What's this? Phineas and Ferb has now been said to join the number of shows that have had season finales ending on cliffhangers? Well, who'd have thought it? Whether this information has been leaked or not, according to sources, a Phineas and Ferb junior novel entitled "World Without a Platypus" is set for release midway through next year to coincide with the air date of the cliffhanging Season 3 finale episode, apparently sharing the title with the book. What could possibly be so suspenseful that events would have to carry on into a whole new season just to resolve things? Sure, we all knew that Dan and Swampy signed on to create a Season 4 for their show, but did that prompt them to do something like this? At least they won't leave fans in the dark this way. It is unknown if this whole matter could potentially break the show standards, but it should ultimately depend on the episode itself and the contents of its plot line. Like the summers of 2010 and 2011, this is yet another special that's surely gonna be the epic thing of the season! Long live Phineas and Ferb!
