Phineas and Ferb Get Busted! is an episode in the first season of Phineas and Ferb. It was aired on February 16, 2009.


Candace's dream comes true when Mom finally comes home. Phineas and Ferb are shipped off to military school, but Mom's surprised to discover she misses them.

Bad Qualities

  1. It is a Phineas and Ferb torture episode, it is basically what would happen if Candace and her mom finally caught her brothers in the act. But it ends up getting worse throughout the episode.
    • In fact, it’s also too dark for a light-hearted Disney Channel cartoon.
  2. When Phineas and Ferb's mother saw that they modified her car to a flying car, she gets upset at them saying that they never asked for her permission.
  3. After Phineas and Ferb forgot to add some bolts to keep the flying car center to be stable, it later falls and destroys their house causing their parents to send them to "Smile Away Reformatory School" which is a torture camp to brainwash Phineas and Ferb.
  4. The Drill Sergeant is a cruel character in this episode, as he tortured Phineas and Ferb to get them brainwashed to make them stop being creative.
    • He also tried to drown them, by using a firehose to spray them with water, which is child abuse, and that could get him arrested, or yet FIRED AND WITHDRAWN AS A SERGEANT BY THE OFFICIAL MEMBERS OF THE U.S. ARMED FORCES!
    • He also did a bait-and-switch with his camp claiming to be cute and fun, yet it is a prison so he can torture kids.
  5. There is also the "It's all a bad dream" cliché.
    • Speaking of which, if this wasn't a bad dream, the episode would have put an end to the entire overall plot of the show, considering that Candace would have finally realized that busting her brothers would have unpleasant results.
  6. There are 2 problems with Perry's nightmare.
    • During the SS SN raid, when Phineas is being dragged out the door by two SS SN soldiers, he yells "I haven't even finished my cereal!", when in reality, he and the rest of the family were having bacon and eggs for breakfast (which the animators of this episode mistook bacon and eggs as a cereal).
    • Speaking of which, when Ferb tells Phineas "Perhaps that's where he disappears to every day.", he has a spoon in his hand when he's eating bacon and eggs. So what, do you use knives to drink soup?

Good Qualities

  1. Amazing songs used for the episode, such as "The Good Life" "Chains on Me" and "Little Brothers".
  2. Candace later redeems herself, and later saves her brothers.
  3. Phineas and Ferb are still likable in this episode.
  4. After Phineas and Ferb were in the camp, Candace later got bored after she did so much and missed Phineas and Ferb building things. So she later goes to the flying car (that Phineas and Ferb got in trouble for) and went to save them from the Drill Sergeant.
  5. The Drill Sergeant got his comeuppance by being knocked off a cliff by Doofenshmirtz's spider robot and never appearing again.
    • Since Candace and Perry were dreaming, the Drill Sargeant and the Smile Away Reformatory School somehow doesn't exist and is just an imagination.
  6. Thankfully, it was just a Perry's dream despite being a cliché ending.


Despite having a 8.6/10 on imdb, "Phineas & Ferb Get Busted!" wasn't well received by fans and critics and is considered as the worst episode of Phineas and Ferb along with Candace Gets Busted, due to Candace being at her worst for busting her brothers, Phineas and Ferb being tortured non-stop, the cliched ending, and Drill Sergeant being very cruel and abusive to the titular characters.
