S.I.M.P. Squirrels in My Pants: Disney's Phineas and Ferb the BEST Live Tour Ever

What Does SIMP stand for? Ask Phineas and Ferb!

So, the show started out odd. I mean, way odd. We drove in only 45 minutes early and got a parking space directly across from the stadium for only $5, and it was nearly empty. That can't be good- right? I said nothing.

Banker's Life Fieldhouse.

My eight-year-old son feared Phineas and Ferb would just be people in costumes, so when the girl came out to prep the crowd he said, "Hey, this might not be so bad after all; I like it."  

I said nothing. 

She asked trivia, had them singing and dancing, and got everyone psyched- including Mr. Downer.

Getting psyched pre-show.

Then, a cartoon came on- Mr. Downer said, "Hey, this might be okay. I didn't know it was a movie."  

Again, I said nothing.
Phineas and Ferb for real.

Phineas and Ferb slid onto the stage straight out of the movie. Mr. Downer crossed his arms over his chest and said, "See! I was right after all. This is going to be dumb just like I said."

I said nothing.

We love Perry the Platypus.

But, when Perry and Dr. Doofenshmirtz hit the scene, I caught him leaning forward in his seat and smiling, of course; I said nothing.

Perry was a hit. Did I mention, we just love Perry?  Anyway, all was going well until a mash-up scene with giant beach balls golf balls. The entertainers actors tossed the balls out into the crowd. 

How fun! Everyone cheered and Mr. Downer smiled, but so did Daddy. He was having the best time; he sang all the songs; he batted the ball that finally came to our seats... did I mention he was having a great time?

Stupid Daddy, he batted the ball away. Mr. Downer was excited to hit it. It was clearly the highlight of the show. Little sister, Mayhem stood in her chair, and Daddy was oblivious. That was that; the ball never came back to us.

Sister cried and put her head under her chair. Brother crossed his arms over his chest and said, "That was the worst show ever!"

I said nothing, but I scowled at Daddy. He shrugged his shoulders, "What? I thought it was going to hit them on the head." Giant, cushy balloon Daddy, poor excuse.
Final Scene with lots of fun confetti.

Confetti, magical confetti. Did you know it has healing properties? Even as they tried to kick us out the kids collected confetti.

Oh, the confetti.
So, what was your favorite part of the show?  "I liked the confetti!"  Well, that's fair, I mean they spent a lot of money on the Monster Truck, performers, and those Squirrel Pants were pretty funny, (I'll be singing that song forever: "S-I-M-P. Squirrels in my pants. I've got squirrels in my pants.") but if you liked the confetti who am I to judge? 

Oh, wait. I only thought that; what I said was... 


Ringling Brothers Dragons.

Can't wait for Disney on Ice, Worlds of Fantasy with
Lightning McQueen and Buzz Lightyear.  

Bring a fat wallet for party favors.

The show was a little long for little ones, and it was a school night. Many seats were empty, but I think everyone must have been at the COLTS game. I mean, I liked the show. I thought it was fun. You should go- just don't let your Dad come.
