My tribute to 'Phineas and Ferb' continues with a special edition of the short-lived revival of 'Press Your Luck', entitled 'Whammy!: The All-New Press Your Luck'. It'll be the same as when I did the 'Press Your Luck' special, except that it'll just be the characters competing. Since we're on a 'Phineas and Ferb' theme here, Alyson Stoner, the voice of Isabella Garcia-Shapiro and Jenny Brown, will host this special episode with Gary Kroeger reprising his role as announcer. ROLL IT!
(Whammy! The All-New Press Your Luck theme)
Gary Kroeger: The game with Big Bucks and Whammies is back, bigger and better than ever! It's time to Press Your Luck and play.....WHAMMY! Let's meet today's players!
Phineas: I'm Phineas and I know what I'm gonna do today! I'm gonna beat that Whammy and win some Big Bucks!
Jeremy: I'm Jeremy and I'm here to rock the Whammy's world!
Vanessa: I'm Vanessa and those little red punks are goin' down!
Gary Kroeger: And now, please welcome our host.....ALYSON STONER!
Alyson Stoner: Thank you, Gary Kroeger! Thank you, everyone! Welcome to Whammy! The All-New Press Your Luck! This is the game where you can spin your way to big bucks and some fantastic prizes! Players, are you ready to PRESS YOUR LUCK?
Phineas, Jeremy and Vanessa: YEAH!
Alyson Stoner: That's what I like to hear! Let's start you off by giving you each $1,000. And you can add to that by taking a chance at our Big Board. It's filled with thousands of dollars in cash and prizes. Let me show you how it works here. Ready.....STOP! There we go, PlayStation 4! That's worth $499. However, I must warn you about the dreaded Whammy. It's no fun to hit those guys. If you land on the Whammy, he'll take away all your cash, all your prizes and make a deposit into his own Big Bank. While we're giving this money away, let's stock the Big Bank with $3,000. And you can Whammy the Whammy by landing on the BIG BANK square. You do that, I'll ask you a question. If you get it right, you will have Whammied the Whammy! Also, you could win a Chevy Corvette! Gary, tell 'em about that car!
Gary Kroeger: Nice toss there, Alyson. It's the sporty new 2016 Chevrolet Corvette ZO6 Stingray, features 8-speed automatic transmission, 6.2 liter V8 engine, Apple Play and Android Auto capabilities, performance group 3LT, rear view parking camera and Magnetic Selective Ride Control, from Chevrolet!
Alyson Stoner: That is one cool car! All you have to do is hit both halves of the Chevy bowtie, win the game and that car is yours. The strategy in this round is to take as many spins as you dare without hitting a Whammy. The player that's in the lead after this round gets to go last in the final round. Before the game, we drew to see who would go first. Phineas, you won that draw. You have $1,000, let's see if we can add to it. Let's put the board in motion. Good luck to you, Phineas! Here we go!
Phineas: Stay out of my way, Whammies! STOP!
Alyson Stoner: STOP AT BIG BANK! WOW! Right out of the gate, Phineas lands on the Big Bank! There's $3,000 in the Big Bank and it's all yours if you can answer this question:
In what state were the most battles of the Civil War fought?
Phineas: That would have to be Virginia.
Alyson Stoner: For $3,000, the correct answer.....IS VIRGINIA! Nicely done, Phineas! Brings you to $4,000 as we come to Jeremy. $1,000 for you, here comes your first spin.
Jeremy: Here we go! Let's see the Big Bucks! No Whammy! No Whammy! STOP!
Alyson Stoner: Stop at NASCAR Racing School! That's worth $499, Jeremy. 2nd place for now at $1,499 as we come to Vanessa. Here's your first spin.
Alyson: Stop at half of the Chevy bowtie! She came to win the car! Pull out that top half, Vanessa! We've made it once down the line, no Whammies to speak of. You know what we're gonna do now? We're gonna add some more Whammies to the board! And at this point, you can freeze if you think you have enough to win the round or if you're just plain afraid of that Whammy. Phineas, back to you. You have $4,000. What do you want to do? Freeze or Press Your Luck?
Phineas: Gotta go with the name of the game! PRESS MY LUCK! STOP!
Alyson Stoner: Stop at an Elvis Collection worth $370! Jeremy, you have $1,499, 2nd place, Freeze or Press Your Luck?
Jeremy: PRESS ON! Big Bucks....Big Bucks.....STOP!
Alyson Stoner: Stop at $450! $1,949, still 2nd place as we come to Vanessa. You've got half of the Chevy bowtie, Freeze or Press Your Luck?
Vanessa: I'm Pressing My Luck, Alyson! STOP!
Alyson: Stop at $300! $1,300 for you, Vanessa. 6 spins into the game, still no Whammies, more are on the way. Phineas, $4,370, Freeze or Press Your Luck?
Phineas: PRESS ON! Big Bucks, let's see the Big Bucks! Big Bucks and.....STOP!
Alyson Stoner: Stop at BIG BUCKS! $1,500! $5,870 now for you, Phineas. We come to Jeremy. $1,949, Freeze and take that into the final round or Press Your Luck?
Jeremy: PRESS MY LUCK! And.....STOP!
Alyson: Stop at $300! Jeremy, you're now at $2,249 as we make our way to Vanessa. You have $1,300, half the Chevy Bowtie, she's pressing her luck!
Alyson Stoner: Stop at a Whammy that's cookin' something up for you, Vanessa.
(George Foreman Whammy)
Whammy: You can get this mean, green burnin' machine for one.... (coughing) easy payment of.....(coughing) ALL YOUR MONEY!
Alyson Stoner: That Whammy burned $1,300, deposited it and the top half of the Chevy Bowtie into the Big Bank. Big Bank now at $4,300. 9 spins down, 1 Whammy hit, let's add some more, shall we? Phineas, you're at $5,870. Freeze or Press Your Luck?
Phineas: I'm gonna Press! STOP!
Alyson: Stop at a PlayStation 4 worth $499! Looked so good to him when I landed on it that he had to have one of his own! $6,369 for you, Phineas. We come now to Jeremy. $2,249, Freeze or Press Your Luck?
Jeremy: Gotta go one more!
Alyson: I've heard that many a time!
Alyson Stoner: Stop at.....A WHAMMY! Here comes Don Whammy.
Whammy: Don't ever Press Your Luck with the family!
Alyson Stoner: Don Whammy had a contract out on your money. $2,249 gone, into the Big Bank it goes. Big Bank now at $6,549. You're out of this round, as is Vanessa. But before we go back to Phineas, we'll add more Whammies to the board! Phineas....you're not even thinking about it! You're freezing with $6,369. Consider yourself frozen right there. (Whammy! commercial cue) At the end of the first round, Jeremy has no money and a Whammy; Vanessa - No money and a Whammy; Phineas in the lead $6,369 and the Big Bank at $6,549 with the top half of the Chevy bowtie. When we come back, it's our question round! Stay with us here on Whammy! The All-New Press Your Luck!
(return from commercial)
Alyson Stoner: Welcome back to Whammy! The All-New Press Your Luck! Now it's time for our question round. I'll ask you a question, buzz in whenever you think you know the answer. That answer will become one of 3 choices for the remaining 2 players. A correct buzz in answer gets you 3 spins, correct multiple choice answer gets you 1 spin. Here's the first question.
If Whammy is in a state that was part of the Louisiana Purchase and is home to the Lewis & Clark National Forest, then in what Big Sky State is Whammy?
Alyson: Is Whammy in Montana, Idaho or North Dakota? Jeremy?
Alyson: And Vanessa?
Alyson Stoner: Whammy would be in Montana! Phineas gets 3 spins on the buzz in, Jeremy gets a spin and Vanessa gets a spin! Next question:
Caribbean Stud and Five-Card Draw are variations of what casino card game?
Alyson: Is it Poker, Blackjack or Baccarat? Phineas?
Alyson: Poker says Phineas. Jeremy?
Alyson Stoner: You copycats! It is Poker! Phineas goes to 4, Jeremy goes to 2 and Vanessa gets 3 spins, she'll go to 4! Next question:
In the Oscar-nominated film 'BIG', Tom Hanks dances on a keyboard in what nationally-recognized toy store?
Phineas: FAO Schwarz.
Alyson Stoner: Is it FAO Schwarz, K-B Toys or Toys R Us? Jeremy?
Jeremy: FAO Schwarz.
Alyson: FAO Schwarz....Vanessa?
Vanessa: Definitely FAO Schwarz.
Alyson Stoner: Definitely FAO Schwarz, that big keyboard is at FAO Schwarz! Phineas to 7, Jeremy goes to 3 and Vanessa goes to 5! 4th and final question:
Pink, Blue or Yellow? If you received a present from Tiffany & Co. in their trademark gift box, what color would it be?
Alyson Stoner: Is it Blue, Pink or Yellow? Jeremy?
Jeremy: I think I should know this one. I'll say Blue.
Alyson: Jeremy says blue. Vanessa?
Vanessa: I'll also say blue.
Alyson Stoner: Well, Tiffany & Co.'s famous box is colored blue! (Whammy! commercial cue) Phineas gets 3 more spins, goes to 10! Jeremy gets a spin, goes to 4 and Vanessa gets a spin, she's at 6! We'll be turning those spins into Big Bucks on our Big Board after this! Don't you go anywhere!
(return from commercial)
Gary Kroeger: Runners up will receive this Croton watch, specially designed with the Whammy! logo. Croton Watch Co. - Fine Watches since 1878.
Alyson Stoner: Welcome back to Whammy! The All-New Press Your Luck! Time now for the final round of our game! Take a look at our board, there's over $100,000 just waiting for you to take it home, along with some Whammies. You know what happens if you land on the Whammy. He'll take everything and deposit it into the Big Bank, which stands at $6,549. As if the Whammies weren't enough for you, the Big Board now features DOUBLE WHAMMIES! If you land on the Double Whammy, not only will they wipe you out, but they'll also mess with you a bit, so be careful. If at any time you land on 4 Whammies, you'll be out of the game. Jeremy, Vanessa, be careful, you each have one. Remember, only the player in the lead after this round gets to keep their cash and prizes. Here in the final round, you can now pass your spins! Remember that! We usually start with the player with the lowest score. Since we're tied for that, we go to the player with the fewest spins, that's Jeremy. You have 4 spins, let's put the board in motion!
Jeremy: Big Bucks! Let's see the Big Bucks and....STOP!
Alyson: STOP AT A DOUBLE WHAMMY, JEREMY!
Whammy: I better file these important financial documents! (green paper is dumped on Jeremy)
Alyson Stoner: Jeremy, what'd I just get through telling you about the Double Whammy?
Jeremy: I said No Whammies! No Whammies!
Alyson: You still have 3 spins to work with. Press Your Luck or Pass?
Jeremy: I came to PRESS MY LUCK! STOP!
Alyson: Stop at Move One Space to the Double Whammy, $1,750 or $700 and a Spin. Pick your poison, Jeremy.
Jeremy: $700 And A Spin.
Alyson Stoner: You got the $700 And A Spin! Still 3 spins, Press or Pass?
Jeremy: Pressin' My Luck! STOP!
Alyson: Stop at Move One Space again! You can either have Luggage, $1,750 or $750 And A Spin.
Alyson Stoner: Brings you to $2,450, 2 spins left. Press or Pass?
Jeremy: Press on! STOP!
Alyson: Stop at a SAFARI! That's worth $7,200, catapulting you into 1st place with $9,650, one more spin....he's pressing on!
Alyson: Stop at a trip to WAIKIKI! That's worth $3,499! $13,149 for you, Jeremy. We come over to Vanessa, 6 spins, let's hit the board!
Vanessa: Gimme some Big Bucks! That car would be nice! Let's see the Big Bucks, Big Bank, No Whammies.....STOP!
Alyson Stoner: Stop at a Whammy that's got a call for you, Vanessa.
(Verizon Wireless Whammy)
Whammy: Can you hear me now? Can you hear me now? You're out of range.....and money.
Alyson: 2nd Whammy for you, Vanessa, 5 spins left, Press Your Luck or Pass?
Vanessa: I want that Big Bank! I'm gonna Press My Luck! STOP!
Alyson Stoner: Stop at the bottom half of the Chevy bowtie! All you have to do is hit the Big Bank, win the game and the car is yours! And you have 4 spins in which to hit the Big Bank. She's pressing her luck!
Alyson: STOP AT BIG BANK! $6,549 could be yours, Vanessa.....but more importantly, the top half of that Chevy bowtie. Here's your question.
The Nile River is the longest in the world. Into what major body of water does it flow?
Vanessa: The Mediterranean Sea?
Alyson Stoner: For the car, the correct answer....IS THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA! That brings you to $81,848, Vanessa. 3 spins left, Press or Pass?
Vanessa: Pressin' my luck! STOP!
Alyson: STOP AT A DOUBLE WHAMMY, VANESSA!
(Dunkin' Donuts Whammy)
Whammy: One non-fat, double-tall, sugar-free latte with extra foam! (BOOM!) And absolutely no dough!
Alyson Stoner: Vanessa, you had it all! You had it all seconds ago!
Vanessa: I got coffee now.
Alyson: At least you got coffee now. Whammy dropped you down to 0, put the money and the car into the Big Bank, which is now at $84,848! 2 spins left.....and they're headed your way, Phineas! 2 spins you must take before we can deal with the 10 in your Earned column. Here's your first Passed spin.
Alyson Stoner: THERE'S BIG BANK! Phineas, this question is worth $84,848. Your question is:
Who originally presided over 'The People's Court'?

That $21,349, trips to Waikiki, China, going into the Big Bank, which now stands at $24,349. We move the 7 spins from your Passed column into your Earned column. You now have 8 spins to work with. You can pass those spins to Phineas in the hopes that he gets a Whammy.
Jeremy: And that's exactly what I'm doing!
Alyson: Phineas, 8 to you! Avoid the Whammy and you win! Here's your first passed spin.
Alyson: Stop at....A WHAMMY!
(Dollar Bill slides his card in and punches in his code)
(Whammy appears on screen)
Whammy: Sorry, you've got insufficient funds. (laughing as he takes Dollar Bill into the ATM)
Alyson Stoner: Phineas, that Whammy looks at you and sees dollar signs. You just put more money into his bank. Big Bank now up to....$213,783. We take those 7 spins from the Passed column and move them to your Earned column. Phineas, I take it you want to go back to the board.

Alyson: THERE'S BIG BANK!
