"Moon Farm" is an episode of Phineas and Ferb.


Inspired by the lost verse from the nursery rhyme "The Cat and the Fiddle", the boys decide to take some cows to the moon to see if its low gravitational pull actually does produce the best tasting ice cream ever. Back at home, Candace decides to take advantage of the boys being gone and attempts to make a fancy dinner for Jeremy, but her lack of cooking skills don't add anything to the plate. Meanwhile, Dr. Doofenshmirtz attempts to use his 'Moisture Suck-inator' to turn his neighbor's plants brown, so that his plants will be greener by comparison.


Stacy comes by to the Flynn-Fletcher House and sees Candace camping out under the oak tree outside. Candace states that she decided to bust Phineas and Ferb early, since she had plans for the day. After driving away a group of people who had also been camping out in the backyard under the impression that she was waiting for concert tickets, she reminds Stacy of the time Jeremy prepared a microwavable pizza for her, then voices her intentions to return the favor by preparing her own meal for them to share. Although neither Candace nor Stacy have cooking experience, Candace is confident their combined knowledge on cooking (if any) would help them figure what to cook and how to cook it.

As they leave, a rocket raises from the ground behind Candace. Phineas, who is in the rocket, tells her that he and a group of friends are going to the Moon. He reminds Candace about the nursery rhyme The Cat and the Fiddle, which she vaguely remembers. Phineas says there was a lost verse that Ferb found in the Dead Sea. He reads the barely legible verse aloud, which states that because of the moon's low gravity, the cow produced the highest quality ice cream in the world. It failed to rhyme with the rest of the song, so it had been excluded from most versions. Although understanding the idea which they're planning to test out, Candace notices the absence of any cows anywhere, which is quickly answered to by Ferb, who uses a calling can to summon a heard of cows to board the ship. Candace threatens to bust them if they didn't cancel their trip by the ending her ten-second count-down, but they ignore her. As she reaches two, the rocket lifts off, leaving a singed Candace to finish in defeat, "one". On the already airborne ship, it occurs to Phineas that Perry is missing.

Through a log stash beside the fireplace, Perry enters his secret agent headquarters, where he is told by Major Monogram that Dr. Doofenshmirtz is up to something which as usual, has to be stopped. After being told to enter Doofenshmirtz's lair through a Central Access Threshold (CAT) door installed by a vague operative (who is shortly later revealed to be Carl), the agent leaves to carry out the assignment.

Meanwhile, the rocket ship arrives at its destination on the moon, and Phineas, the first to disembark from the ship, voices to everyone to take advantage of the reduced gravity to have fun. Buford does this by dropping Baljeet on the lunar surface, then painfully body-slamming on him, allowing his illogically added weight to crush Baljeet's body.

Perry arrives at Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated to get tied up by a trap and see his nemesis covered in green paint, as it is revealed. Dr. Doofenshmirtz tells Perry that he was stricken with envy after seeing a lush garden on his neighbor's balcony, compared to his own barely living potted plant he was struggling to take care of. In the flashback, the owner of the plant store answers Dr. Doofenshmirtz's questions squarely by saying he doesn't have a green thumb, which he takes literally and later pours a can of green paint all over himself. Despite this, the paint doesn't reach his thumbs because of how he was holding the bucket. With the flashback over, he reveals his latest invention, the Moisture Suck-Inator, which he plans on using to suck the moisture out of his neighbor's plants and render them dry and lifeless like his own. It's then when he realizes that 'Green Thumb' is actually a metaphor and he is stricken with the dismay of having spent unnecessary money on the green paint.

Candace and Stacy are in the kitchen, suited up in French chef uniforms and complementing each other's apparel when they hear Irving outside acting as mission control and communicating with Phineas and Ferb on the moon. Candace storms out and interrupts Irving, telling Phineas that he's busted. Phineas ignores this and asks how her cooking for Jeremy is going, which she hadn't started yet. As Stacy asks what they should cook, Ferb indirectly suggests Lamb Cobbler as a tribute to Jeremy's British background. Although Phineas willingly volunteers to relay the recipe step by step and help them prepare the dish, Candace persists to bust them. As they leave, he tells Irving they need a big bow, which he doesn't know the immediate use of, concluding that it would make the dish look pretty.

After managing to push the Moisture Suck-Inator onto the balcony, Doofenshmirtz fires the weapon at his neighbor's garden, which, to his shock, doesn't dry up as expected. He then tests it on Perry, on whom it works fine and dries him into a dry shadow of himself smacking his lips for moisture. As Doofenshmirtz wonders why it worked so well on Perry and not on the garden, he finds out that Perry, now out of the ropes, is aiming the weapon at him for revenge. The weapon fires, and Doofenshmirtz is also left a dehydrated shadow of himself also smacking his lips. Both feebly smack their lips for a few seconds until Doofenshmirtz offers for them to share a drink.

Stacy doesn't see how what they've made so far will ever be finished as lamb cobbler because of the ridiculous ingredients they had thrown in. Irving comes through the door, only to be ushered further back outside by Candace, and announces that they need three cups of 'self-righteous flowers'. Candace suggests that the 'self-righteous flowers' are roses, as they always seem stuck up in her opinion. Stacy forgets her claim and agrees with it.

Doofenshmirtz, fully re-hydrated by his share of iced tea, decides to jet-pack to his neighbor's balcony and ask how he keeps his plants so well-nurtured. Irving finally announces that they bake it for an hour at 350 degrees. He then tries to flirt with them, only to have the door closed on him by Candace. Worried that the dish wouldn't be prepared before Jeremy arrives in five minutes, Candace asks Stacy what they should do. Stacy in turn suggests that they cook it for five minutes at 9000 degrees.

Phineas tastes his ice cream and comments that it is the best he ever had. When Doofenshmirtz gets over to his neighbors balcony, he notices that the plants and man are plastic. A man walks out of the apartment and asks Doofenshmirtz what he's doing. Puzzled, Doofenshirtz asks why he has plastic plants. The man angrily answers that he likes plastic. Doofenshmirtz, unhappy, attempts to leave on the jet pack only to find out that it isn't working properly.

When Candace worries what the lamb cobbler might look like, she opens it and comments that it's beautiful even if they didn't put lamb in it. The rocket lands and Candace comes out of the house to tell Phineas that he's busted, but one of the cows in the ship accidentally pushes a button as it backs away from the door, causing the rocket to launch. Phineas wonders how the cows will do on the moon. Ferb answers that photosynthesis will create oxygen, then an atmosphere, saying that their friends will be fine.

When Perry drops Doofenshmirtz's Moisture Suck-Inator, the ray hits Candace's lamb cobbler. Candace looks at it and is surprised that it has so suddenly dried up. When Jeremy arrives, Candace hides it behind her back so Jeremy can't see it. Phineas and Ferb see what happened to it and switch it with their ice cream. Candace is surprised to see what her lamb cobbler was replaced with but along with Jeremy is satisfied with it. Doofenshmirtz is now stuck in the CAT door and calls Perry, saying he forgot his keys and is trying to enter his layer the way he did. Perry ignores this and leaves a "Do Not Disturb" sign hanging on his posterior before departing. Doofenshmirtz subsequently curses him.




  • Phineas explains about Ferb found something at the Dead Sea at the beginning of the episode, Ferb's bigger eye was in front and his smaller eye was at the back.
  • Because of the way Dr. Doofenshmirtz was holding the paint bucket, his hands and the outside of his arms shouldn't be green.
  • When Candace is seen in her chef outfit, she is wearing her trademark shoes but when she walks outside to Irving she is wearing black trainers.
  • After Dr. Doofenshmirtz pours green paint all over himself, his right arm changes to a lighter shade of green for a second.
  • Near the end of the episode, when the rocket comes back Ferb's big eye is facing the viewers.
  • When Baljeet, Buford and Isabella peek out of the rocket ship, Isabella's bow is purple. When they're inside the rocket when Phineas asks where Perry is, Isabella's bow is pink again.
  • Stacy states that instead of cooking at 350 degrees for 1 hour, they could cook at 9,000 degrees for 5 minutes. This is more than twice the "real" value of 4,200 degrees. If Stacy had mistakenly punched in 750 degrees for 350 degrees, 9,000 degrees would have been the result.
  • Doofenshmirtz does not know that having a green thumb is a metaphor, when he used the metaphor in "Atlantis", which he soon figures out when he states that " he'll have a green thumb. Not really, but metaphorically-". However, it is possible that this episode happened before "Atlantis", or that he forgot what it meant.
  • When Candace says to Irving "not in the house!" Irving doesn't actually step outside of the house.
  • After Doofenshmirtz uses the Moisture Suck-inator on himself, he leaves to go get "a glass of water", but later on, he and Perry are seen drinking lemonade instead.
  • At the Doofenshmirtz Evil Inc. building, you can see a sign saying "Secret C.A.T door" at the cat flap, that Perry uses to enter Doofenshmirtz lab. However, later in the episode, when Doofenshmirtz gets stuck in the cat flap, the sign saying "Secret C.A.T door" is gone.
  • When the camera zooms out at the rocket while Candace says, "You're going to be so busted", Isabella has no neck for a moment.
  • Both Phineas and Ferb state that through photosynthesis, the grass would create an atmosphere on the Moon. This would not normally be possible with the following problems:
    1. The grass couldn't survive extreme lunar temperatures.
    2. Carbon dioxide is required to create oxygen, therefore, photosynthesis alone would not create an atmosphere.
    3. The moon wouldn't be able to hold the atmosphere because the Sun's heat would literally bake it off.
  • Part of the cat and the fiddle (the part involving a dish and a spoon) was not mentioned.
  • When Stacy asked "What should we cook", her bracelet was there. However, it was gone for the rest of the episode.


  • Stacy says to cook the meal at 9000 degrees for five minutes. This could be a reference to the "ITS OVER 9000!" line from the famous anime Dragonball Z.
