Phineas and Ferb in “The Skateboard Ramp”
The villain Doctor Heinz Doofenshmirtz was quite complacent, far more so than usual, as he sat observing his latest creation- an army of robot men! These creatures, if they may be called by that term, were made of pure titanium, a substance renowned for it’s strength, and used in aeroplanes and such devices requring durability. They were of an average human size and weight, and their motion was similar, though with that robotic nature which is quite unavoidable if one is not to expend great time and effort producing those subtleties so wanted by us these days, and which gave the creatures a somewhat ungraceful walk. Their voice, for they communicated by speech as do men, was metallic and pure of any imperfection- but had a ringing- like that of a bell or an echo. Doctor Doofenshmirtz had not been foolish as regards weaponry either- for this army of cold metal men (cold of emotion for a robot, like any electrically operated device warms to some degree) were equipped with laser blasters on their right fingertips, and could shoot as fast as any bullet- and injure just as efficiently. So then, as this great villain contemplated his latest creations, standing still in neat rows like a freshly begun game of Chess- his mind turned from these to his enemy, Perry the Platypus- a secret agent who had been his undoing for many years… Yet now, armed with this great army, how could Perry defeat him? He was at last invincible. “Now” he said, arising and turning to face a control panel with many a switch and lever, a buzzing and a beeping as is a control panels nature, “Now to rid myself of that accursed Perry once and for all… To blast him from existence at last! Ah- what grand and beautiful thoughts are these- the final destruction of my longstanding arch nemesis… who has o’er a thousand times defeated me so blastedly successfully… But NO! Now i shall face him with confidence and with a knowledge i shall be victorious! A great triumph this will be!” Doofenshmirtz then walked to his balcony, and observed calmly his surroundings- downtown Danville. “Ah… this breeze is a great thing- i am very grateful for this bestowment… which allows my brain to think more clearly without the infernal confusing heat… Yes… now that i think clearly… yes… It seems Perry has not a single chance to defeat me- and… Hello! What is that on the horizon above that great skyscraper? It’s… No! It can’t be! A flying platypus! Flying by aid of a rocket and metal wings! Of Aluminium i’m sure… or perhaps Carbon Fibre, which is just as strong but twice as light, or thereabouts as good in it’s qualities relative… for the precise knowledge is vaguely in my memory… But let’s avert from all this rambling thought- to my present situation! Here at bullet pace comes my nemesis, that platypus who has so successfully defeated me… all these many times… But now! Now we shall see a new dawn, a new day, the Day of Doofenshmirzt! Ahahahahahahahaha!” Doofenshmirtz’s rambling thoughts came to a halt abruptly as he considered what was to be his next course of action. Certainly with one like Perry, with his wits so very much about him, and with his veritable army of gadgetry to assist him in his every wish and desire… to capture such a beast surely required another army… An army of robotic men! Doofenshmirtz activated his army by flicking a small red switch of metal on his control panel and the robotic men came to life instantly, activated by an electrical signal of the radio variety- such as a remote controlled car works. The men stood still but hummed a low hum, the hum of electrical fans cooling their inner parts. Doofenshmirtz, standing on his metal grated balcony, observed with great pride these beasts of metal. They observed directly in front of them their creator with cold indifference. But with another flick of a green switch Doofenshmirtz activated their main ‘brain’ unit, their CPU, and their hard drives which collected electrically stored memory information. Now, to give orders! Now, to war! To victory! Doofenshmirtz turned once more to Perry, now but fifty metres away flying at full pace by way of his two jet rockets. They both expired and he came to a stop, sliding to a halt before his enemy. “Ah, Perry the platypus… What an unexpected surprise! And by that i mean a completely expected surprise! Now to simply activate my trap-” But before Doofenshmirtz could activate his electric trap mechanism Perry threw a glass of water he had picked up from a table onto the control panel, causing it to explode, and Doofenshmirtz’s army of robotic men to shut down. “Curse you Perry the platypus!” said Doofenshmirtz with much anger, as Perry flew away triumphant yet again.
