Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz latest invention: The BO-AT

Dr. DoofenshmirtzIf you have kids (and cable) there is a good chance that the Disney television show, Phineas and Ferb gets watched in your house. If you don’t have kids that’s ok; just know that you are missing out on the best cartoon television show that Disney has put out ever. It’s filled with weird looking kids, really funny adventures; and a secret agent platypus that fights his nemesis, Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz.

So why bring it up tonight? One of tonight’s stories involved Dr. Doofenshmirtz trying to take over the tri-state area with some evil scheme once again. His secret weapon this time? The BO-AT.

The Phineas and Ferb Wikia describes it best:
[blockquote]The BO-AT (pronounced:bow-at) or Buoyancy Operated Aquatic Transport was the "new" invention Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz wanted to market when he planned on flooding Danville. Described as being like a car that can drive on water, the BO-AT was really just a Motorboat. His scheme was to open the Danville Dam and create a city like Venice, Italy or, according to him, to a lesser extent, Venice, California so that people would have to buy his BO-AT.

The scheme was foiled when Agent P opened the M.O.A.T. also known as the Metropolitan Oval Aquatic Trench which then diverted all the water into going around Danville.[/blockquote]
You can watch the 10 minute episode yourself here. Dr. Doofenshmirtz comes on around the 4 minute mark but the whole episode is some quality kids television indeed.
