My Thoughts:

As I am writing up this review, the Phineas and Ferb theme sing is being sung in my head.  If you have young children and tweens who watch this show on Disney, then you have probably either heard them singly the catchy theme song, or have found yourself a time or two singing along to it when it plays.  As for the show itself, this is one animated series that my husband loves to watch with the girls.  While he is not a big fan of ponies and princess shows, he loves Phineas and Ferb, as it reminds him of shows like The Simpon's, Family Guy and a little bit like South Park.  

I usually end up watching this popular animated series with the girls after they finish their breakfast in the AM, and then my husband will watch the recorded version with them when he gets home, so that I can prepare dinner.  Even though the girls have already seen the episode, they love spending time with Daddy, as they snuggle together on the couch, to watch Phineas and Ferb.

So, when I was sent a review copy of  PHINEAS AND FERB: MISSION MARVEL on DVD recently, I knew three people in my house who would go crazy for it.  And, did they!  This past Saturday AM, while I was trying out a few new recipes in the kitchen, my husband and daughters, still in their pajamas, gathered up all the blankets and pillows that they could find and laid on the living room floor, to watch the seven episodes that make up this new DVD release.   Our kitchen and living room are one big open space, so I was able to watch them as I was cooking.  They kept letting out giggles and gaps as they watched their two favorite characters, Phineas and Ferb partner with popular Marvel Super Heroes, including Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, and Hulk, to help get their powers back.  While I would have thought this would have been more geared towards boys, as it dealt with Marvel superheros, my girls couldn't get enough of it.  And, that night, my husband surprised me and shared a few of his prized Marvel action figures with them.  Who knew he would be passing along these action figures to his daughters.  

The DVD was so good, that on Sunday, my husband and daughters sat to watch a few of their favorite episodes from this DVD, that was when they weren't reading the comic that came with the DVD. If you have a Phineas and Ferb fan in your house, or even a Marvel superheroes fan, you will want to make a point to pick up PHINEAS AND FERB: MISSION MARVEL when it arrives on DVD tomorrow.  And, with the holidays right around the corner, this would make for a great stocking stuffer idea. :-)
