Phineas and Ferb

From Mental Block

Phineas and Ferb is a 2007 animated show produced by Disney Channel. It follows the title characters: Phineas Flynn and his English stepbrother Ferb Fletcher on summer vacation. Every day, the boys embark on some grand new project, which annoys their controlling sister, Candace, who frequently tries to reveal their shenanigans to her and Phineas' mother, Linda Flynn-Fletcher, and less frequently to Ferb's father, Lawrence Fletcher. 

The series follows a standard plot system; running gags occur every episode, and the b-plot almost always features Perry the Platypus working as a spy under the name "Agent P" to defeat the latest scheme of Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz, a mad scientist driven largely by a need to assert his evilness.

Candace finally busts Phineas and Ferb, and as a result they are sent to Smile Away Reformatory School to have their imaginations stripped from them.

Candace sees Phineas and Ferb being subject to the torturous practices of Smile Away and feels like this punishment is too much, so she goes to break them out with her crush, Jeremy. They break into Smile Away only to see the results of the brainwashing - Phineas and Ferb are now imagination deprived zombies. Candace breaks them out, and when they're cornered by the drill sergeant, she has to plead them to embrace their creativity again. It works, however it all turns out to be a dream in the end.
