Phineas and Ferb just announced that it is ending this summer, making it the longest running Disney Channel original series ever. It has been on television longer than Kim Possible, That’s So Raven, or The All-New Mickey Mouse Club. There is a very good reason for that — it is smart, funny, and shockingly subversive and meta for a “kid’s show,” attracting an impressive list of guest stars including Allison Janney, Tim Curry, Tina Fey, and Michael Douglas. Its creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh previously worked on some classic animated shows including Rocko’s Modern Life, King of the Hill, Spongebob Squarepants, and Family Guy before teaming up to create Phineas and Ferb together.
In the show’s eight-year history, Phineas and Ferb has had a lot of moments that honestly should go over most kid’s heads. With hundreds of episodes, a movie, and Star Wars and Marvel cross-over specials, this is by no means a complete list, but here are some of the best moments that the kids won’t catch. Bonus — Seasons 1 thru 3 are available on Netflix Streaming so you can marathon it before the finale, and Disney XD will be airing every episode starting on June 9 and running up until the finale on June 12.
