Phineas and Ferb try to prevent an out-of-control planet from smashing into Danville. Meanwhile, Doofenschmirtz attempts to steal the worlds largest ball of twine.
Phineas and Ferb are camping out with all their friends and of course Candace is trying to prove her brothers’ troublemakings but is under contract with her mom that she is only able to levy a complaint once a day. Having already forfeited her chance at spoiling the sleep over, Candace has to wait until the clock strikes twelve before she can tell her mom. From the looks of it she may get her chance because the kids build a giant telescope that is able to take a gander at a bunch of planets which gets Buford excited as he is looking for his long lost ‘Whale-mingo’ and with this machine he may just get to see it! Turns out there is a whole planet of “whale-mingos’ but there’s a slight problem as it is quickly headed to smash into Earth!
Meanwhile, Doof is building a machine so that he can get the world’s largest ball of yarn in hopes of spurning a new road-side attraction. Perry of course is trapped and Doof is able to beam the ball of yarn back to the evil HQ, only for it to get caught on Phineas and Ferb’s new giant spring that they are using to bounce the alien planet back to orbit. The yarn gets caught on the spring and shrivels up until its really small, then the planet gets sent back to orbit. Afterwards, Candace tries to show her mom of what’s going down, but with no evidence Phineas, Ferb, Perry, and the gang all get treated to late night snacks.
A pretty standard episode of Phineas and Ferb but it’ll have to make do as we don’t get another one for two weeks. That said I didn’t this week’s episode was all that great, the B-plot was very forgettable and seemed just thrown together at the last minute, and the A-plot wasn’t all that funny except Linda Fletcher and her contract. Even Perry didn’t really put up a fight tonight and as such it looks as the writers didn’t either.
