Revision as of 03:32, January 19, 2012

In order to wash their house quickly, Phineas and Ferb build a contraption that spins it around, causing Candace to become so dizzy, she collapses. She soon finds herself in the magical land of Odd where their friends Isabella, Dr. Doofenshmirtz, Jeremy, Buford and Baljeet are remarkably like the characters in L. Frank Baum's book The Wizard of Oz. When Candace follows the yellow brick sidewalk to Bustopolis (to find the Wizard who can help her finally bust her brothers), things aren't what they seem.

Summary

Good Witch Isabella 4

"What'cha doin'? I'm the Good Witch Isabella. Welcome to Patchkinland."

Candace is in her room, utterly bored so Mom suggests helping Phineas and Ferb clean the house, or at the very least, read a book. Candace chooses to read the book Mom gave her: the Wizard of Oz. Candace, reaching the part of the book where the tornado hits, gets trapped in the house, sprayed by the hose and passes out. When she comes to, she finds Perry lying on her, and the house has landed in Patchkin land, inhabited by Patchkins who bear a strong resemblance to the Fireside Girls. They also tell her that she squished the evil witch Suzy (although she's still alive, just trapped underneath). Isabella the good witch then comes down, floating in a giant eyeball. She gives Candace Suzy's Red Rubber Boots instead of letting Doofenshmirtz the evil witch (warlock) get them. Candace blames the whole affair on Phineas and Ferb, and asks Isabella how to bust them. She suggests following the Yellow Sidewalk, in song form.

Down the road, Perry and Candace run into Baljeet, hanging as a "nerd"-crow. When she mentions she is going to see the Wizard of Bustopolis, he gets excited and expresses his own wish, to be cool, also in song form. Candace cuts him off part-way, reluctantly dragging him along. Over the next hill, Phineas and Ferb suggest a more fun way to Bustopolis: by riding unicorns through a sugary-treat wonderland! Candace turns them down, insisting on staying with the Yellow Sidewalk.

Meanwhile, Doofenshmirtz the witch/warlock traps Agent P in a spider web. He wants to get hold of Candace's red boots, and sends flying squirrels to capture her. Sadly, they don't fly very fast. He has his pet monkey-spider (or spider-monkey) guard Perry while he plots.

Candace flirts with Tree-Jeremy

Candace flirting with Tree-Jeremy

Over the next ridge, Candace finds a rusted tin lumberjack. Remembering this part of the book, she initially looks for an oilcan, but gives up as soon as she learns that Jeremy plays the part of a tree in Patchkinland. She shamelessly flirts with him, asking what his wish is, and allowing him to come along. Baljeet gets upset that Jeremy can sing a song but not him, but Candace shushes him. Phineas and Ferb show up again, presenting a new split path of the Yellow Sidewalk. Instead of walking down a road that leads to a terrifying beast-bog with slime-breath, he suggests to skate down an ice-cream canyon. Despite Jeremy and Baljeet's insistence, Candace sticks to the road.

Our crew comes to a dark, scary forest, where Candace gets scared by a hooting Stacy-owl hoot. Buford appears, dressed as some weird mix between a lion, a tiger, and a bear. Stunned by his appearance, Candace is initially willing to just walk by him, but she asks him about his wish. Buford insists he wants nothing, but follows the group anyway. Phineas appears again, offering one more split from the bog; this time, the road leads down a bouncy blue sidewalk, but Candace sticks stubbornly to her choice. Shortly after this, the squad of squirrels arrive and attack the foursome, and Candace is captured.

The squirrels returns to Doofenshmirtz, and puts Candace on the spider web with Perry. The witch tries to get Candace to take off her boots, but the shoes have grown up her legs, making them nearly impossible to take off. The witch decides to remove Candace from the boots by vaporizing her. Candace tells Perry to leave without her, which he does easily by using the saw in his hat. Perry comes across the rest of the traveling squad and tries to bring them to Candace. They can't understand him, so Agent P gets out his phone and Major Monogram (the fairy) tells them to save Candace.

The group dress up as witches and knock on Doofenshmirtz's door, offering him a witch makeover. They distract him as Perry goes upstairs to free Candace. The vaporizer goes off, prompting everyone to look inside his magic ball. They see Candace and Perry running down a hall, which prompts Buford to knock the orb over. The witch calls the guards to surround the group as they take off their costumes. Candace throws a bucket of water at the witch in self-defense and his clothes shrink. He tells the guards to destroy them as he changes into his tracksuit. Candace asks if they really want to do that, to which they say "No", and that no one ever asked them what they wanted. She asks what they want, which they reply to in song. Doofenshmirtz returns soon thereafter, finding that the prisoners have escaped. He orders the drawbridge raised, but they escape on Perry's grappling hook, which has caught a blimp. Doofenshmirtz curses them as they leave.

As it turns out, Phineas and Ferb are driving the blimp that the grappling hook had caught. They ask if Candace is having fun, which she denies. A squirrel flies his plane through the rope, causing them all to fall into the inappropriately named Sea of Razor Sharp Rock Spires, which is actually a bunch of throw pillows. They find themselves quite close to Bustopolis, and rush to meet the wizard. Phineas offers a fun way up, an elevator like a slide, but Candace chooses the yellow staircase; the other three choose Phineas's method. Candace gets there first but the others land on top of her. To Candace's shock, the Wizard turns out to be their mom, who leaves to get a cake out of the oven, and asks the boys to hand out the gifts.

Red Rubber Boots

Doofenwitchwarlock singing My Red Rubber Boots.

Baljeet gets sunglasses to fake coolness. Phineas tells Jeremy that he's just a boy dressed up as a tree, allowing Buford to undo a zipper at the back of his costume which leaves Jeremy in his underwear. Then, Phineas asks Buford if he really wants nothing. After much insistence, Buford reaches into the bag and pulls out a ham sandwich, which was something that he really did want. Phineas says there was one more wish to grant, and Candace had thought they were trying to bribe her so she wouldn't bust them. In actuality, Phineas was referring to granting Doofenshmirtz's wish. They remove Candace's red rubber boots with a rubber shoehorn and gladly give Doofenshmirtz the boots. He starts to sing a song about the boots, but gets hit by Dorothy's house.

Have fun, everybody

Phineas and Ferb ending the episode.

Wizard Mom returns, and Candace tries to get her to bust her brothers. Mom wants to know why, because she thinks that everything Phineas and Ferb did sounded like fun. She suggests that Candace should have had fun with them instead, and that summer doesn't last forever. This causes the dream to end, with Candace in her bed. Phineas and Ferb are outside her window riding a giant unicycle with Buford, Baljeet, Isabella and Jeremy. Phineas finds Perry and asks Candace if she wants a turn on the unicycle. She refuses until she realizes that it sounds fun. She joins in, sitting next to Jeremy. He says that it's better than taking the sidewalk, to which she strongly agrees. The screen then comes down like a curtain and shows Phineas and Ferb saying "Have fun everybody!" to the audience as the episodes ends.

Memorable Quotes

In reference to the house

Baljeet: Do you guys always wash the house like this?

Phineas: Sometimes we give it a bath, but the city's using the tub as a reservoir.
While Candace is passing out.
Baljeet: Water-proof undergarments! Wheeeeeee!
Dream Fireside Girl: (spits) I have saliva!
Candace: Gross.
Patchkins: Witch! Witch! Witch!
Doofenshmirtz: Not Witch, Warlock! It's a robe, not a dress!
Doofenshmirtz: Give me those boots!

Isabella: She doesn't have to give you anything. You have no real power in this part of Odd.

Doofenshmirtz: Wrong! I have the power of positive thinking! True, it doesn't really help me in this instance, but you can't stay in Patchkin Land forever!
Doofenshmirtz: Now check me out as I disappear into an evil cloud of black smoke!

(Black smoke surrounds Doofenshmirtz. Smoke disappears, and reveals a charred and withered Doofenshmirtz)

Doofenshmirtz: You know, I'm just gonna use my bus pass.
(Referring to her journey to Bustopolis)
Candace: I hope there's not gonna be a lot of singing in this thing.
Candace: Oh hi! I couldn't help notice that you were, um...

Jeremy: A tree?
Candace: A-ttractive.

Jeremy: It's OK. I know I'm a tree.
Phineas: From this point, you have two routes to Bustopolis. On your right is a yellow sidewalk through a terrifying beastbog.

Large amount of water comes out of bog
Beastbog: We have saliva!
(Candace, Jeremy and Baljeet look in shock)
Phineas: And on the left, Ferb and I have built a frozen non-dairy treat sidewalk through an ice-cream canyon. You can skate it and lick it for the ultimate favorable fun.

Jeremy and Baljeet: Ice cream, ICE CREAM!
Candace: This is a better than the ice cream canyon, isn't it?
Baljeet: Oh, yes, I much prefer rotting vegetation and blood sucking demons.
Jeremy: There sure are some creepy looking trees in here.
Creepy Tree: Hey, we can't all be movie stars!
Candace: Okay, kidnapped by flying squirrels and stuck in a web that came out of a monkey's butt. Hm... I guess I have had weirder days.
Candace: Perry, I'm sorry I got you into this mess. Forget about me, save yourself if you can.

Perry cuts the web in front of him with a saw in his fedora

Candace: Well if it's that easy...
Buford: Whats he want? (Perry chatters) Could be rabies.
Major Monogram: Gentlemen, we're on to stop Doofenwitch you want to rescue the girl. I see an opportunity for some inter-agency cooperation, now here's the plan. Wait, why am I a fairy?
Doofenshmirtz: I want....those red rubber boots!

Phineas: Sure. Candace won't mind. Right Candace?
Candace: Well, yeah. But they won't come off.
Phineas: Ferb?
Ferb takes out a red shoe horn
Doofenshmirtz: A red rubber shoe horn? Why didn't I think of that? That's it?

Phineas: Yep. Have fun!
Candace: Did you say fun?

Ferb: Often, the most fun you can be found in your own backyard.
Candace: And the joy...is in the journey... Okay! I'm in!
Phineas: Cool!
Candace: Oh Jeremy! Hi! Let's go!
Jeremy: Way more fun than taking the sidewalk, eh?
Candace: You have no idea.

Phineas: (From the back of the screen) Have fun, everybody!


Background Information

  • This episode shows Candace as the main character instead of Phineas and Ferb.
  • A male witch is generally termed a warlock, hence Doofenshmirtz's insistence throughout the episode, including the credits.
  • Candace has only seen Doofenshmirtz 4 times in real life ("Tip of the Day","Fireside Girl Jamboree", "The Ballad of Badbeard", "Chez Platypus"), and she doesn't even know his name. A speculated theory of why she dreamed with so many details of Dr. Doofenshmirtz is her subconscious remembering the events she thought she was hallucinating in "The Ballad of Badbeard".
  • "La-la-la-la-la-la-la" is sung a lot throughout the episode, although mostly they were interrupted by Phineas and Ferb in order to offer shortcuts to Bustopolis.
  • Birds are present in all three songs that counterpart "If I only had a __" (I Wish I Was Cool, Tree-Related Wish, and I Want Nothing).
  • If you look really close you can see Suzy during the entrance sequence.
  • This is the first episode where Dr. Doofenshmirtz interacts with Buford, Baljeet, Suzy, and Isabella, Phineas, and Ferb. Although this may be unofficial, since it was in a dream.
  • Buford was described as being a mix between a lion, a tiger and a bear. In the 1939 film, Dorothy, the Scarecrow and the Tin Man walk through a dark forest which is said to be home to lions, tigers and bears.
  • During the credits, Dan Povenmire is credited with being the voice of "Doofenwitch Warlock" as a reference to Doofensmirtz continually insisting he is a warlock throughout the episode.
  • Although using less energy, the tube to the top actually takes longer than the stairs.
  • Phineas and Ferb break the fourth wall at the end by actually talking to the audience.
  • The Coolest Coaster Ever makes a brief appearance when Candace is going to Odd for the first time. ("Rollercoaster", "Rollercoaster: The Musical!")
  • The Fourth Wall was broken many times in this episode.
  • When Candace woke up from her dream, she was on her bed with Perry the Platypus besides her, despite that Candace fell on the floor without Perry's presence before she had the dream.

Errors

  • When Phineas and Ferb lift the house, no basement is present.
  • When Doofenshmirtz sings/says "I have one splash of color," he's wrong because he has a pink track suit. Also, when Doofenshmirtz started to sing, he was wearing his regular robe instead of the track suit.
  • Perry is shown wearing his fedora when going up "the fun way" to see the wizard. However, in the previous scene he had taken off the fedora and gone back into "pet mode".
  • During the song "The Yellow Sidewalk":
    • Candace's eyes change color from blue to brown.
    • Isabella sings "The sky is blue" when the sky is actually purple.
  • When taking the "fun way" up, Baljeet asks for "Three please." However, four took the "fun way": Lion-Tiger-Bear Guy, Jeremy Tree, the Nerd-Crow, and Perry.
  • When Buford and Baljeet come to tell Candace that they're going to clean the house, the camera zooms in on Buford and Baljeet a pole is showing but in wide screen, it's not there.
  • When Candace fell at the "Sea of Razor Sharp Rock Spires" and running to Bustopolis, she had her regular shoes on but not the red boots.
  • When Candace is talking to the wizard after she comes back from the kitchen, the stand on which the phone was and the phone, are gone.
  • When Candace gets knocked out when Phineas and Ferb were cleaning the house, she was lying on the floor, but when she wakes up she was lying on the bed. However, this could be explained if the washing the house part was part of the dream.
  • Isabella seems to want to help Candace bust Phineas [and Ferb] despite her love for Phineas.
  • The vines that had grown from the boots and attached to Candace's legs disappear in the proceeding scene.
    • Later, when the boots are removed, they are completely normal with no trace of the vines.

Continuity

Allusions

  • The title and premise of the episode are obvious references to the The Wizard of Oz, in particular the famous 1939 film adaptation. Certain parodies within include:
    • The red rubber boots on Suzy (red ruby slippers). Also, Doofenwitchwarlock wanting the boots, such as how the Wicked Witch wanted the ruby slippers.
    • Isabella arriving by eyeball (Glinda by bubble).
    • The famous oilcan scene with the tin lumberjack.
    • Flying squirrels instead of flying monkeys, although the spider-monkey may also reference the flying monkeys.
    • Candace says "Perry, I don't think we're in Danville anymore," instead of the famous "Toto, I don't think we're in Kansas anymore."
    • The Patchkins (munchkins)
    • Talking trees (Jeremy Tree, unnamed tree in the forest)
    • The Yellow Sidewalk (Yellow Brick Road)
    • The Sea of Razor Sharp Rock Spires (the poppy field)
    • Doofenwitchwarlock saying "I'll get you my pretty!" as he crashes through the ceiling.
    • During Tree-Related Wish one can see something in the background when it zooms out. This could be a reference to the famous "Munchkin suicide" urban legend that is actually a bird inside the film.
    • Candace tries to melt Doofenshmirtz using a bucket of water.
  • This episode also contains references to The Wiz, a broadway musical and movie retelling of the story of The Wizard of Oz set in African American culture:
    • Baljeet (the nerdcrow) singing with crows.
    • The commercials on Disney Channel advertising the episode include the phrase "ease on down the road", which is a song from the musical and movie.
    • One line in The Guards' Wishes is "We haven't had a chance to dance since we were on Broadway!", possibly referencing this.
  • During the Tree-Related Wish song, a bear can be seen sitting next to a tree and reading a newspaper. The bear is seen again during the end credits after Rusted, saying, "Yes. Yes, I do." The two appearances are a combination allusion to the "Charmin Bears" series of commercials for Charmin toilet paper and to the sarcastic/rhetorical question about what bears do in the woods.
  • At the end of the episode, Isabella instructs Abraham Lincoln, Santa Claus, an astronaut and Pinocchio to follow the yellow sidewalk, among others.
  • In the German version of this episode, when the Baljeet puts on the sunglasses, he says "Hasta la Vista, baby" like Arnold Schwarzenegger. However he doesn't say this in the English version.
  • Doofenwitch getting burnt in his attempt to exit in a burst of smoke, may have been a reference to actress Margaret Hamilton, the original Wicked Witch of the West, who was severely burnt during the filming of the scene of the Witch's exit in a smoke burst.
  • Candance asking Perry, "Hey, weren't you taller?" when he comes to rescue her from the spider web is possibly an allusion to Princess Leia asking Luke, "Aren't you a little short for a storm trooper?". Luke and Perry both remove their helmet/hat before continuing.
  • The guards' musical number is very similar to the Knights of the Round Table song from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
  • The original "Wizard of Oz" book had animals called kalidahs which were part tiger and part bear.
  • Jeremy is a tree, this could be a callback to the book's writter, L. Frank Baum, (Baum is three in German)
  • 'Sesame Street The scene where Candace climbs up the stairs and the friends take the tube maybe similar to a skit where Kermit and Grover demonstrate up and down while Grover exhaustedly climbed up the stairs and Kermit taking the elevator.

Allusion to other Disney Media

  • Doofenwitchwarlock insisting that his outfit is not a dress but, in fact, a robe, is very similar to something Kronk's "Shoulder Angel" said in The Emperor's New Groove.
