Show Summary

Welcome to the Phineas and Ferb page at TV.com! Looking for something to do when school is out for the summer? Then you should tune in to this hit animated series on the Disney Channels (including Disney XD) as this show can give you all sorts of ideas that two overly creative stepbrothers can come up with during each day to pass the time before school starts in the fall. Of course, in real life, all of them would be impossible to do in one day. But as the master builders they are, Phineas and Ferb are able to bring their grand inventions and structures to life within a few hours, have their fun, and prepare for their next thing to do the next day. In their blended family, Phineas and Ferb are stepbrothers and can come up with the ideas on what to build and do for fun. Phineas' teenage older sister Candace, regards most of what they do as dangerous and unsafe, and in most episodes, tries her best to bust them in their schemes to her mom, Linda Flynn, or occasionally, her stepfather Lawrence Fletcher. However, her efforts are mostly thwarted as the boys' grand structures or inventions miraculously disappear before either parent can see them before arriving home or wherever they're located. Most times, they disappear as a result of their pet, Perry the Platypus, whom unknown to anyone in the family is a secret agent. To the Flynn-Fletcher family, he's a simple-minded pet, but when he gets the opportunity and nobody is looking, he puts on his little fedora hat, sneaks into his secret lair under the family home via various methods, and gets his assignments from Major Monogram. Perry's nemesis is Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz, an evil, but goofy scientist who comes up with various schemes of his own in efforts to rule the tri-state area of Danville, hometown of Phineas, Ferb, and company. Doofenshmirtz's schemes are as outrageous as the boys, as are the reasons he came up with them in the first place. But unlike, Phineas and Ferb, Heinz's efforts are usually unsuccessful as Perry is able to thwart the scientist's, and most times, the boys' and Perry's stories intertwine, leading to not just success for Perry, Phineas and Ferb and Doofenshmirtz's defeat, but Candace being denied the chance to bust her brothers. The cycle then starts again the following day in the summer.moreless

  • WORST "SHOW" EVER

    1.0
    I retract anything positive I had previously said about this show. In my original review of Phineas and Ferb, I stated that the first season was good. Now, I am really convinced that NOTHING is even remotely good about this show. And here is why. I don't apologize for what I am about to say to any idiot Phineas nd Ferb fans out there who love this show, so I should get that out of the way first. As a fan of Disney classic movies such as Lady and the Tramp and The Lion King, it really is an insult whenever I see Phineas and Ferb and any other character from this fucking show on Disney-themed merchandise such as board games. Phineas and Ferb is not Disney, never was Disney, and will never be Disney. It's just a show created by people who previously were involved with Family Guy trying to make one of the worst kid shows ever. In fact, it is the worst. Shows like My Life as a Teenage Robot and Rugrats were not this horrible and wretched. The ONLY good thing about this show is that it has ended. All of the characters in this show (sans Perry the Platypus) are HORRIBLE, especially Candace, whom is WORSE than Jenny Wakeman, Angelica Pickles, Plankton, and Dora combined. Candace is the worst character I have ever seen in any media, and I think Ashley Tisdale should never voice another cartoon character again. I never want to see Candace's ugly face again, or Phineas', or any other character's for that matter. Thank CHRIST we now have an actual GOOD show like Star Vs. The Forces Of Evil playing on Disney, and we also have Girl Meets World, which isn't good, but at least it reminds me of the old days of sitcoms. So, yeah, FUCK PHINEAS AND FERB.moreless
  • Phineas and Ferb: The most amazing and underratd show in the history of Disney Channel!!

    10
    To all the haters: Here's why we love Phineas and Ferb so much:



    1- The writing:



    The writing on the show is just outstanding. Every joke hits, and there's not even one episode that doesn't make the viewer laugh just a little. Jokes often connect with others from the same episode, and sometimes with jokes from other episodes. The jokes and references aren't random, they make sense. They don't make the viewer cringe, and there was never, never a bathroom joke, while other shows have plenty of them. It always treated the viewer with respect, and because of it we treat the show with respect as well.



    2- The characters:



    The characters are very well written and far away from stereotypes. Their personalities, instead of being only one quality, have many. Phineas, for example, is always very optimistic, but we've seen him breaking down sometimes (Summer Belongs to You, Across the Second Dimension). Candace herself said that being popular and good-looking is not important (S'Winter), and she only likes one guy and one guy only. Lawrence is one of the only dad's of animation that is not stupid. He's pretty funny, but also seems very responsible, like an adult should be. Vanessa, even though gotic, is not a b#tch because of it, and she really likes her dad, even though he's annoying sometimes. Dr. Doof is a little dumb, but far from braindead or downright stupid. The best jokes of the show come from him the majority of the time, and every single time he and Major Monogram are together, you're in for a good laugh. Same with Perry and Doofenshmirtz. The female characters are very well written, because they have their own goals and objectives instead of always being linked with boys and only boys. No character is mean. Candace only want to bust her brothers because of fairness. She doesn't want to bust her brothers because she want to see them suffer, she want to bust them because she knows she would be busted if she was in their place. When she sees she can't bust them, she joins the fun (It's a Mud, Mud, Mud, Mud World, Wizard of Odd). Baljeat is very smart, but he isn't egoist nor he calls someone dumb. Buford is self-proclamed bully, but we see he has a lot of consideration for he's friends. Overall, the characters are very well written and likeable



    3- Actually Good Musical Numbers:



    The musical numbers are very varied and smartly written. For starters, there's a lot of Rock and Metal (Watchin' and Waiting Gimme A Grade, Bouncin' Around The World, Robot Riot, Kick It Up A Notch, Football X-7, The Way of The Platypus, Evil For Extra Credit, Hockey Z-9), great Pop numbers (Busted, Summer Belongs To You, Floor After Floor, Brand New Best Friend, Everything's Better With Perry, Summer (Where Do We Begin), Big Brain, My Sweet Ride, Un-Untiable Knot, Jump Right To It, One Last Day Of Summer, Tomorrow Is This Morning Again). Without mentioning this show has a lot of different genres. There's 70s pop (Mini-Golf Queen), 80s eletronic (Alien Heart), Jazz (Der Kimderlumper, Army Of Me) and even country (Yodel' Obey Me). There's a little of everything for everyone.



    4- It isn't repetitive because there's no build up:



    This show is not story driven, it's comedy driven. Because of that, it doesn't get repetitive because the focus is always the characters and the story takes a backseat. We don't go into an episode to see if candace will succed, we go to see how she will fail. We know that Perry's going to defeat Doofenshmirtz, so we want to see what's his new scheme is and how Perry's going to defeat him. It doesn't create expectations, so it doesn't bore us. A good example is the Roadrunner. We know that the Coyote will fail, but we still enjoy it imensely. We never expect the Coyote to win because we don't expect him to. Same with Phineas and Ferb, we know that Candace's going to fail, so we don't expect her to win. This, in turn, makes the show anything but repetitive, since the focus is always the intricate comedy.



    5- Good until the end:



    Different from what a lot of people think, the quality the show only decreased slightly. When you think about it, no other cartoon has managed to stay so tight and consistent after seven years in the air. The comedy was still great, and even when they were going trough a lack of ideas, they refused to give up, which gave us great episodes even towards the very end. The decrease in quality was natural and unevitable, and it passed trough the harder phases a lot better than others shows in their seasonal rots. Heck, the two last episodes are considered one of the best of the entire show. This show avoided seasonal rot entirely.



    So there it is. That's why we love Phineas and Ferb so much. It's a very consistent show that definitively left it's mark in the world of animation. I wouldn't be surprised if this show gets remembered as a classic in the near future. It's just that good.moreless
