"PHINEAS AND FERB"
"That’s the Spirit!" – It's Halloween night and the kids encounter a strange boy and his father who are convinced their house is haunted. Meanwhile, Dr. Doofenshmirtz's disdain for grass causes him to invent a "mind-transfer-inator" enabling him to merge minds with a cow and destroy all the grass in the Tri-State Area. Unfortunately, his plan backfires and he transforms into a scary "were-cow" that wreaks havoc any time there is a full moon. It's now up to Agent P to stop him and save Danville. Guest starring are Michael Douglas and real-life son Dylan Douglas, as father and son residents of the haunted house.
"The Curse of Candace" – Candace is bitten by a bat after watching a popular vampire movie and worries that she is becoming a vampire. Phineas and Ferb's latest gadgets lead Candace to believe that she has indeed made the change from teenager to teen vampire.

Fox, Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer as the cast of the teen vampire movie.
