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

    • Started off clever and charming but got old

      Phineas and Ferb started off as a wacky offbeat show that got viewers hooked on it but it became repetitive with almost every episode and plot revolving around the two stepbrothers building some device, creating some invention, or going on some outlandish adventure just to annoy their sister/stepsister Candace who can't prove it to the mom and dad. (Yeah you can't do that forever unless your audience is either brainwashed or just a bunch of die hards for this It did introduce other fun and funny characters like Perry the Platypus with their own plot lines that gets other to watch for those reasons. Although I do admit some of the songs are catchy and fun to listen to which makes this show even more addicting. At least the creators don't treat all audience members as dumb which I have to give them points for that. Many of the jokes are funny but it was annoying that for a while that there seems to be no other cartoons on Disney Channel besides this for a long while.moreless

      This show is among the funniest, cleverest, most brilliant to come out within the last ten years. It appeals to a wide variety of people, it's catchy, the writing is smart and I really like all of the characters. This show is also so nice and pleasant to watch. Some of the jokes... Oh my god there's hilarious. I love it when they refer to the Wildebeest as agent silent G (Gnu is another name for Wildebeest). It's jokes like that, which may go over a child's head, which are the most enjoyable. And, maybe they don't. The creators don't treat children like they're stupid, and I really admire that. They know part of the fun is trying to figure out why something is funny in the first place. I would recommend showing this to your kids, if you have any. But honestly, it's even more enjoyable as an adult.moreless
    • I like it.

      Not that funny, but once you start watching it, it's addicting. It's doesn't make you laugh out loud, but the stories are really interesting, and although the plotlines are really childish (I mean come on. How lucky are they?) they are uniquely childish. They actually interest you, and the characters are great and steriotypical, which are the only way good kids show characters can be.
