Hey guys Kyle here.
Today I want to talk about one of my favorite episodes of Season 1 of Phineas and Ferb, "Ready for the Bettys"
For those who don't know (And you will know why in a bit),"Ready for the Bettys" is an episode from Season 1 of Phineas and Ferb and in my opinion, the most overlooked episode in the series (again I'll explain why later).
In this episode, Candace and Stacy won a chance to meet their favorite band The Bettys, but things don't go well for them as the band treeats them like they are custodians. While this is going on, Phineas and Ferb uncovered Perry's lair, (Phineas thinking Ferb was responsible) so Perry must stop the boys' spy fun while trying to keep his identity safe.
This is a great episode of the series and the best of Season 1 in my opinion.
First off, one of the writers is Aliki Grafft who is my favorite writer in the show. She makes the great episodes to the series.
The episode also has some of the best funny moments in Season 1. Every joke in the episode works and is done well. From Candace and Stacy to the boys finding Perry's lair and Perry's and Monogram's reaction to Isabella literaly asking Phineas what they are doing? The humor of the episode is great xD
I also love the song. Aliki was also the songwriter for this song. It has a great beat, good and funny lyrics.
This song was so good that it made the Musical Cliptastic Countdown. It was Number 10 on the lost but still that is a feat.
Now some of you have noticed that this episode doesn't air anymore. Some people wondered why it is rarley shown.
But today, the reason why we don't see it on TV anymore has been revealed.
THE EPISODE IS BANNED IN THE US!!!!!
WHAT?! Why is it banned?
Well Aliki posted the reason on her twitter. which you can find here: https://twitter.com/alikigreeky/status/237977819576168448
It turns out that there is a band in NY also called "The Bettys" and they thought that the PnF team were copying them. To it's defense, Aliki and the entire PnF team did not know that the band actually exists. But because of this, the PnF team had no choice but to pull the episode off the air.
It's a shame because this is a great episode.
It may not be on TV anymore, but it is still available on other places. It is available on digital media places like the itunes, PSN, amazon and many others. The episode iss also on youtube.
The point is I recommend the people who read this and watch this episode. Trust me, you will not be disapointed. It is a great episode.
