DIANNE BUT­LER OUT OF THE BOX

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Sunday -

OB­VI­OUSLY I don’t need to tell you this, but there’s ab­so­lutely noth­ing wrong with in­stalling your chil­dren in front of the tele­vi­sion for hours at a time. Es­pe­cially if they’re go­ing to be watch­ing a Phineas and Ferb marathon.

I love that a great slab of tele­vi­sion is called a marathon, and so is a long race. Take Two is the talk show spin-off from Phineas and Ferb, the fan­tas­tic se­ries that I re­ally need to spend more time in front of.

I don’t know how I’m go­ing to swing this, but I think I’ll start by record­ing these episodes to­day and sav­ing them for that week off I’ll have if I’m lucky enough to ever break my arm. Or hand. Some­thing like that. Some­thing de­bil­i­tat­ing but not ter­mi­nal.

Rea­son­ably im­pres­sive lineup for Take Two’s de­but. They’re only two min­utes long, scat­tered through­out the Phineas and Ferb episodes this af­ter­noon, so who­ever they went with was go­ing to have to give us some­thing and give it to us quick.

Neil Pa­trick Har­ris is an ideal choice be­cause he can do magic tricks. He al­leges. Well, he makes Ferb dis­ap­pear and brings back a car­toon blender in his place. Ev­ery­thing’s a car­toon here, ex­cept the celebs. I love Neil Pa­trick Har­ris, and he’s adorable here.

So is Emma Roberts, which shocked me. She’s in Scream 4, which gives her mas­sive cred­i­bil­ity as far as I’m con­cerned. They get her to do a hor­ror movie scream and it’s very good.

Less in­ter­est­ing was Tay­lor Swift. She seems te­dious. Jack Black is on at 6.30pm, the same time the Kids Choice Awards start. He’s host­ing this year, but watch Take Two first, it’s only a cou­ple of min­utes. He’s fan­tas­tic. In ev­ery­thing. Ever see that Tim Rob­bins film Bob Roberts? He was in that, a com­plete creep, still hi­lar­i­ous. Take Two Celebrity Talk Show With Phineas& Ferb Dis­ney Chan­nel, from 12.30pm Kids Choice Awards Nick­elodeon, 6.30pm

Hi­lar­i­ous: Jack Black
