Why teach English through cartoons?

Children are very difficult to keep entertain, but there are many activities that teachers can use and that at the same time kids will enjoy it; for example some cartoons that they love can be used by teachers in order students learn or can practice vocabulary, listening, grammar, speaking activities, etc.  

The program “Phineas and Ferb” is an American cartoon television comedy series, which shows the adventures of two little stepbrothers. Originally broadcast as a preview on August 17, 2007 on Disney Channel. Each day the boys embark on some grand new project, which annoys their controlling sister, Candace, who tries to bust them. The series follows a standard plot system; running gags occur every episode, and the B-Plot almost always features Perry the Platypus ("Agent P"), acting as a secret agent to fight an evil scientist named Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz. The two plots intersect at the end to erase all traces of the boys' project just before Candace can show it to their mother.
