We are big Phineas & Ferb fans and have invited 25 of our friends over to watch Phineas and Ferbs first original movie on the Disney Channel on Friday, August 5th at 8:00 PM called Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension.
If you haven't watched this show yet, let me tell you all about it. It is Disney's Emmy Award-winning animated series. It is #3 among Tweens for a little over 3 years. Phineas and Ferb are two stepbrothers who spend their summer vacations creating, inventing and building the most awesome contraptions. Their sister Candace is extremely jealous and always trying to "bust" them (according to Goddess). She wants to get them in trouble but Mom never sees what they are up to. The boys have a pet platypus named Perry who is a secret agent however, he fights crime as Agent P. Constantly battling Evil Dr. Doofenshmintz as he tries to destroy the planet!
“Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension” Synopsis
“The story begins on a summer afternoon in Danville. While celebrating the anniversary of getting their beloved pet, Perry, imaginative stepbrothers Phineas and Ferb are catapulted into Dr. Doofenshmirtz’s Evil Inc., where they encounter a machine that opens portals into other dimensions. Phineas and Ferb travel to Alternate-Danville, the eerily familiar dimension resembling their home in the Tri-State area. There, they come face to face with their alternate egos, while their faithful pet Perry reveals a secret of his own.
In Alternate-Danville they encounter the sinister Dr. Doofenshmirtz2, who has successfully managed to reign over the gloomy universe, forbidding all things summer. Phineas and Ferb team up with Isabella2 and an underground group called the Resistance, led by Candace2, who together help open up a window back home.
Unfortunately Dr. Doofenshmirtz2 and his sentinel of robots follow the kids back home and threaten to take over the real Danville. Phineas and Ferb get a resurgence of hope with help from Agent P and a key that holds the secret to usurping Dr. Doofenshmirtz2 and his army. Meanwhile, the Resistance seizes an opportunity to restore order, happiness and summer back in their home. Even though everything hangs in the balance, including Perry’s future fate with Phineas and Ferb, everybody must focus on the task at hand before Dr. Doofenshmirtz2 unleashes true havoc on the Tri-State Area.

The excitement has built all week as we have been preparing for our PJ Party. Parents have contacted me telling me their kids have been excited for over three weeks. In fact, one kid last week thought the party was on Friday and their parent had to disappoint them by telling them they had to wait another week. Kids have purchased new Phineas and Ferb PJs. We have decided on the appropriate snacks, purchased some plates and bowls along with some special pencils, pails and note pads from Target featuring Phineas and Ferb.
If you have a kid who is a fan of Phineas and Ferb, this is the year to grab some awesome swag for their Christmas Stockings (yes, I am always in Christmas mode!)
