Random Thursday

So I'm getting my geek girl habits on as I watch episodes of Phineas and Ferb, what can I say, I like cartoons! I'm a very strange person, I like my vampires and werewolves (and more)--total scary, creepy monsters of the dark, I love the dark eerie fairytales meant for adults to strike fear and enjoyment in their hearts! 

But then I also LOVE Disney and yeah, cartoons! Mostly 90s ones from my childhood, but Phineas and Ferb is one of the "newer" ones I have come to enjoy!

You have to give Disney props too with the joining of families of this one! Ferb came along after his dad married Phineas and Candace's mom...but do we ever know what happened to Ferb's mom? Or Candace/Phineas' dad?

I read on Wikipedia while looking for the right image that the show creators used their own personal "blended-family life" as a basis for the show. And I have NO problems with that! I just wonder...what happened? Was it divorces or deaths? Disney is known for killing off the mothers, so I could totally see that happening with Ferb's mom, but what of Phineas and Candace's dad? 

I can't recall if there was ever any episode that had news of either missing parent. But it was just something I wondered while watching it at the time!

Like I said, I'm weird!

  1. Huh. I've watched the show before but never realized they were step brothers. I always thought they were just friends.

  2. I've wondered about that myself several times! I think many viewers either don't make the connection or have just accepted that they are a happily blended family living as a normal life as possible.
