Skiddley Whiffers is too easy, I need to move on to a bigger challenge.

— Candace Flynn

Phineas, Ferb and the gang build a giant version of a childhood game, using Danville as the central location. Meanwhile, Candace, torn between busting her brothers and playing the fun game, ends up playing along with them so that she can carry on her title of "Skiddley Whiffers Queen." On the other side of town, Dr. Doofenshmirtz is trying to deal with Vanessa growing up and wanting to be a typical teenager. He drops her off on a camping trip with her friends, but can't cope with leaving her alone, so he disguises himself as a fellow camper, and along with Agent P's help, tries to protect her.

Episode Summary

Phineas, Ferb and Candace playing Skiddley Whiffers.

Candace, Phineas, and Ferb take a particular interest in "Skiddley Whiffers", a childhood game. Candace boasts of her constant winning with her brothers and asks for a greater challenge.

In the meantime, Major Monogram and Carl celebrate Perry's 999th entry into the lair. Monogram informs Perry that Dr. Doofenshmirtz went to Danville National Park. Doofenshmirtz is revealed to have taken his daughter and her friends camping in the forest. He is not, however, very keen on leaving his little girl alone, even though Vanessa keeps telling him that she is sixteen, which is almost adult. Eventually, he complies and leaves.

Phineas and Ferb present Isabella, Baljeet, and Buford their newest Big Idea, giant Skiddley Whiffers pieces that are to be used by everybody to move around Danville; the distance to be measured on the basis of the results of rolling an electronic die. Candace decides to join them in playing, even though at first she wants to bust them.

At the same time, Doofenshmirtz, disguised as an expert on survival in the wild comes to the youngsters' camp. He gets on to reviewing the camp's safety conditions, finding fault with several things. He goes back to his minivan for some life vests.

Doofenshmirtz promising not to overprotect Vanessa.

The gang continues moving around Danville, enjoying all the attractions the game provides.

Perry the Platypus finds Dr. Doofenshmirtz who explains to him that he has not prepared any scheme because he needs to protect his daughter. He remembers himself being chased by a swarm of bees while camping, back in Gimmelshtump, due to which he rolls down a cliff and a hydrant gets inside his leg. Eventually, Perry agrees to help him. Doofenshmirtz returns to the camp and continues protecting his daughter and her friends from all imaginable threats. After a while, Perry comes out of the woods, disguised as a bear. Vanessa is disappointed in Perry for participating in her father's idea. Heinz admits his over-cautiousness and leaves with Perry. The almanac he throws away while leaving hits a hive that hangs from a tree and causes it to collapse, thus unleashing a swarm of angry bees.

The gang is at the closing stage of the game, but Candace is left behind. She decides not to give up and demands that she be given the die. When she rolls it, she is declared the winner.

Candace admitting she had fun playing.

Back at the camp, Dr. Doofenshmirtz confides his parental problems to Perry when he hears Vanessa scream. She and her three friends are afraid and they all admit they are allergic to bees. Heinz rushes to save them by pouring all the honey from the hive onto him and jumping into the lake, thus distracting the bees' attention from the teens.

Candace boasts of her victory and rushes to Linda to bust her brothers. She, however, trips over a bell and accidentally sets the electronic die on "All move", thus making all the game pieces leave the backyard. Linda asks Phineas what they were up to all day, and he says that they were playing "Skiddley Whiffers" with Candace, who admits that she enjoyed it.
