What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this non-religious holiday album features all the tracks from the holiday special Phineas and Ferb Christmas Vacation as well as 10 new yuletide tunes. The songs are still Phineas and Ferb-funny with a holiday twist. There are covers of some traditional favorites, so there's a little something for everyone, even family members who aren't fans of the quirky show.

What's the story?

"HOLIDAY FAVORITES" includes 16 tracks from the holiday special Phineas and Ferb Christmas Vacation as well as 10 new tracks. From classics like "The Twelve Days of Christmas," "Frosty the Snowman," "Run Rudolph Run," "Santa Claus is Comin' to Town," and a beautiful rendition of "The Christmas Song" (sung by Vanessa Doofenshmirtz) to funny P&F specialties like "What Does He Want?" and "I Really Don't Hate Christmas," this album is a sweet taste of the holidays with the trademark Phineas and Ferb humor and wit.

Is it any good?

If you or your kids are tired of the same Christmas tunes year after year, Phineas and Ferb: Holiday Favorites is an easy way to shake things up and get everyone into the holiday spirit. With snarky Dr. Doofenshmirtz admitting he doesn't hate Christmas and the whole gang repeatedly sharing their wish lists in "The Twelve Days of Christmas," this album keeps the right balance between silly songs and classic Christmas tunes. Big Bad Voodoo Daddy jazzes things up on "Christmas is Starting Now" and Olivia Olson (Vanessa) shines on "That Christmas Feeling."
