We found it! It's the fabled temple of Juatchadoon.

— Ohio Flynn

After locating and retrieving the Amulet of Juatchadoon, adventuring archaeologist duo Ohio Flynn (Phineas Flynn) and Rhode Island Fletcher (Ferb Fletcher) set off to Central America to help Damsel in Distress Isabella find the Lost Temple of Juatchadoon and her missing mother. However, Dr. Doofenshmirtz has other plans for the amulet - to awaken the evil corn colossus to give him the power to destroy the world.

Episode Summary

During the summer of 1914, the adventurous duo of Ohio Flynn and Rhode Island Fletcher embark on their latest quest; to retrieve the lost Amulet of Juatchadoon from a cave in India. They complete the task with little effort, but as they make their escape, they are halted by Doofenshmirtz wearing a parka and his robotic henchman Norm. When an encounter with the abominable snowman interrupts the confrontation with their nemeses, Ohio and Rhode Island manage to flee in their biplane. Meanwhile, Doof and Norm do not catch them and gets chased by the abominable snowman instead.

They land in Panama, where they rest in a trading post to discuss their plans to find the Temple of Juatchadoon. There, they meet Isabella, whose mother had supposedly set off to find the said temple but subsequently went missing. She seeks their cooperation to find her. Though it is against Ohio's principles to help another adventuring archaeologist, he agrees to help her. At the same time, they attract the attention and interest of a journalist, Candace, who has been trying to document the duo for a story in the newspaper and she tags along with them.

Perry the Platypus puts on a fedora and meets with Monogram and Carl. After being told by the superior to replace his fedora with a fez, he receives his mission; to stop Doofenshmirtz from reaching the Temple of Juatchadoon.

Meanwhile, Ohio and Rhode Island with Isabella and Candace reach the vicinity of the Temple of Juatchadoon with the help of Madi Rose skipper Baljeet and his first mate Buford. The four disembark from the boat and after a short hike on foot they reach the temple.

After navigating around the temple's booby trap-riddled interior, they manage to reach its central chamber. However, they are captured by Doofenshmirtz. He lets Isabella out of the cage and she reveals herself to have been working for Doofenshmirtz, much to Ohio's disdain. She hands the Amulet of Juatchadoon over to Doofenshmirtz, who subsequently betrays her and pushes her into a trench at the bottom of the floor in which her mother (for whom she had begun working for Doofenshmirtz in the first place) is already trapped.

With the amulet, Doofenshmirtz awakens the Corn Colossus of the temple. Just then, Perry makes a dramatic entrance with a musical performance and background dancers. He frees Ohio, Rhode Island, Candace, Isabella and New Hampshire before turning his attention towards foiling Doofenshmirtz.

Doofenshmirtz scoffs at Perry's efforts at stopping him and sends the corn colossus his way. However, Ohio turns the colossus' attention towards his group by breaking a corn cob in half. He then makes a run for it with the rest of his group as it follows in pursuit.

Perry and Doofenshmirtz are left alone in the temple's central chamber. They briefly tangle over the amulet before Perry uses his gadget-rigged fez to snatch it from the rogue archaeologist.

Ohio's group finds themselves cornered on the top of the pyramid with the corn colossus (which is now on fire because of one of the booby traps) closing in on them. As all hope for their escape is lost, the fez/mini-helicopter delivers the amulet to the group in peril. For a moment, they hesitate to try to activate it before Ohio smashes it with a rock.

The corn colossus pops into popcorn and a massive crevice opens itself up through Panama, with the Temple of Juatchadoon itself in the center. The temple is shattered by the force and the group falls in.

They are later rescued by Baljeet and Buford with their boat. As they head back for civilization, Isabella solemnly apologizes to Ohio for double-crossing them. Candace discovers the photos she had taken of the journey with her camera along with the camera itself are destroyed. As Ohio summarizes what had happened, he remembers they owe their survival to the platypus who revealed itself in the temple, but is puzzled on the fact that the being who came to their rescue was a platypus. Rhode Island simply categorizes it as among the many mysteries they would encounter. Although, he is confused about the fez because "we're not in Egypt".

Running Gags

The "Too Young" Line

Isabella: Would this map she sent me help?
Ohio: Yes, yes it would.
Ohio: You fiend, you think we're just gonna give it to you?!
Doofenshmirtz: Yes, yes I do.

Rhode Island's (Ferb's) Line

Ohio: By the way, does anyone else find it weird that we were saved by an anthropomorphic platypus?
Rhode Island: The world holds many mysteries, but what seems strange to one maybe commonplace to another. The fez was weird though, I mean we're not in Egypt.

What'cha doin'?

By Lawrence:

Lawrence: Hello gents, What'cha fancy?
Ohio: Well fame, glory, money and preservation of semi-mystical historical treasures, but we'll settle for hot fudge sundaes.

By Isabella:

Ohio: Someone around here bound to knows something about the lost temple of Juatchadoon?

Isabella:(In the same tone as in her "What'cha doin')" line Juatchadoon?
Ohio: Exactly, we don't know if it really exists.

Isabella: It exists alright, and I know where to find it.

Perry's entrance to his lair

Perry walks through the trading post that's having an ice-cream fight, headed upstairs and goes to a curtain.

I know what we're gonna do today

Ohio: Rhode Island Fletcher, I know what we're gonna dig up today!

  • The map showing the location of Kathmandu depicts modern-day boundaries between countries; in 1914 Bangladesh, Pakistan and Burma were part of British India.
  • When Norm grabs Ohio and Rhode Island, he has his freckles, but when Ohio asks Doofenshmirtz why he was slow clapping, they were gone. When we came back to a full view of Norm, his freckles are back.
  • When everyone is running from the rats, Isabella's hair overlaps Ohio's nose.

322b - Can't Believe It.jpg

  • When the Perry the Platypus theme plays, Isabella is shown inside the cage with Ohio and Rhode Island while she should be trapped in the ditch with Vivian. When the scene shifts back to the ditch, she is there.
  • When the Perry the Platypus theme plays, the color order of the dancers on each side was red, pink, red, pink. When the song ends, the order on each side is pink, red, pink, red.
  • There's no door on the cage, just a lock and hinges attached to one of the bars.

322b - Ruined Film.jpg

  • When Candace opens the back of her camera to check the film, her arm goes behind her body.
  • When Perry puts on his Fez, he takes his fedora off and leaves it with Monogram. Later, when he uses the gadgets in the fez and it flies off, he's wearing his fedora underneath the fez. However, he could have had another fedora.
  • The Panama Canal is not a sea-level canal as depicted in the episode, but rather a multi-level canal with locks to move ships up and down.
  • Fezzes (plural of fez) actually originated in Turkey, not Egypt. However, the Egyptian Army wore fezzes at that time so it makes sense.
  • In the very last shot of the boat going away, Rhode Island is suddenly dressed like his present counterpart and New Hampshire's pith helmet is missing.
  • During the shot of Isabella running on the spike roller, her eyes are black instead of blue.
  • Candace takes several photos in rapid succession without winding the film on. If the film hadn't been ruined anyway, all the exposures would have been superimposed, resulting in a blurred mess. Also, since she opens the camera without making sure the film is wound onto the take-up spool, the film would have been fogged in any case.
  • Snowmobiles had not been invented in 1914.




  • Indiana Jones - The style of the episode is based on the Indiana Jones Series, and the title is a reference to the 2nd movie, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. The names Ohio, Rhode Island, and New Hampshire are references to the fact that Indiana is also the name of a state. Isabella betraying Phineas and Ferb is a reference to how Elsa betrayed Indy in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. The clothes Doofenshmirtz wears inside the temple are similar to those of Dr. Belloq from Raiders of the Lost Ark. Also Phineas, Ferb, and Vivian all have names that are similar to Indiana Jones (names of places). Perry's entrance with the "back up singers" is very similar to the opening sequence of Temple of Doom. Ohio and Rhode Island are also chased by a giant boulder, as Indy was in Raiders of the Lost Ark. As the temple is crumbling, Doofenshmirtz remarks "Probably my face will melt now, and for what?" which is a reference to the fates of Arnold Toht and Colonel Dietrich at the end of Raiders.
    322b - Insert Coin.jpg
  • The African Queen - Baljeet's clothing and tough-guy demeanor along with the boat he operates seem to refer to the Humphrey Bogart classic.
  • Pez - The "Fez Dispenser" is a parody of this famous candy dispenser.
  • Jurassic Park - The roar of the abominable snowman sounds like a T. Rex from this movie.
  • King Kong - Doofenshmirtz's idea to take the Corn Colossus to New York to perform on Broadway is what the explorers in the 1933 original and its 2005 remake did with the eponymous giant gorilla.
  • Men in Black - Ohio (Phineas) distracts the Corn Colossus by destroying an ear of corn, much the same way that Agent J attracts the attention of the Bug by destroying a roach in the final battle scene of that movie.
  • Hamlet - "The world holds many mysteries, but what seems strange to one maybe commonplace to another" may have been inspired by Shakespeare's famous, "There are more things in Heaven and Earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy."
  • The Separation of Panama from Colombia and Panama Canal - Panama separating from Central America is similar to Panama separating from Colombia in 1903. Also, this episode shows how the Panama Canal is being created.
  • Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure - The Corn Colossus is likely inspired by Zakelua, the ancient warrior golem from Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure.
