2 (who?)
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 as well as innuendo

"You gotta Bang you Betty Bongos"

I bet some of you know what that means XD

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.


WHAT?! Why is it banned?

Well Aliki posted the reason on her twitter. which you can find here:…

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.

Well that's all for now.
Until then, Kyle is out PEACE :peace:

WHAT?! I didn't know that episode was banned... but here in Latin America i think it's still airing... and it's one of my favorites too

And i didn't know too that there's a real Bettys band...
Yeah but it's banned in the US.

It is one of my favorite episodes of Season 1 as well.

Neither did Aliki and the others until the band contacted them about it. I have to admit, I didn't know the band existed until Aliki talked about it on her twitter.

I didn't realize that there was an actual Bettys band. But In a wild coincidence, I have added the Bettys in the big battle in My Version of Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension. Did you discover that I put in the Bettys there?

I have seen that scene. Good job :D

What are your thoughts on Ready for the Bettys Joe?

Did you also know that this episode marked the first appearance of Carl the Intern?

I liked it.

I didn't know that at all.
it's not among the best, but i find it very funny. PLUS FIRST APPEARANCE OF CARL!
i think it's remembered actually, /because/ it never airs, and cuz the song is on CD
Me personally, this episode in my opinion is one of the best episodes of the 1st season. But again, that's just me.

I do agree, this episode is funny. The humor in the episode is well done.

I forgot that Carl made his first appearance in this episode. ^^;

Perhaps your right about it being remembered. ^^;
best part? ferb getting angry!
