Ferb, voiced by Thomas Brodie-Sangster, has a crush on Vanessa Doofenshmirtz, who is voiced by Olivia Olson. In the film Love Actually (2003), Sam (played by Thomas Brodie-Sangster) learns to play the drums so that he can impress Joanna (played by Olivia Olson).
Director/creator Dan Povenmire and director Zac Moncrief both left Family Guy (1999), to work on this show.
It took creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff 'Swampy' Marsh 16 years to get Phineas and Ferb (2007) on television.
Although Ferb rarely speaks, he has been shown to have a great singing voice.
Dr. Doofenshmirtz's name was originally Dr. Meddleshmirtz. Both also have the exact same number of letters, 13.
According to creator Dan Povenmire, Phineas and Ferb's humor style is sort of a hybrid between Family Guy (1999) and SpongeBob SquarePants (1999), two shows that he had worked on.
Sometimes Jeremy works at "Mr. Slushy Burger", and sometimes he works at "Mr. Slushy Dog".
Each episode contains at least one original song. The writing staff sings the song into the answering machine of Danny Jacob on Fridays to have it be magically written each Monday.
Ferb rarely talks; in fact there are many episodes in which he has no lines at all. (According to Phineas, "Ferb's more of a man of action".)
It is hinted in the series that Dr. Doofenshmirtz's could be German, the word "Doof" his name is German for stupid or idiot.
Ferb's "large eye" changes depending on what direction he's facing. The large one is always the one furthest away from the screen.
Dr. Doofenshmirtz's robot-man norm was originally a robot to target platypuses. In later episodes he is seen as his servant.
As of 2015, it is the longest running disney animated show, lasting from 2007 to 2015
Dr. Doofenshmirtz often refers to previous episodes.
Phineas and Ferb: Star Wars (2014) has Ferb's most lines.
The giant floating baby head, which was first featured in Phineas and Ferb: One Good Scare Ought to Do It! (2008), has since become a running gag in the series. According to Dan Povenmire, the baby head came from "one board panel drawn by Michael Diederich and one of our directors, Robert Hughes thought it was hilarious and made a whole bit about it. Now it shows up all the time."
While other characters simply call him Perry, Dr. Doofenshmirtz always refers to Perry by his full name (Perry the Platypus). He doesn't abbreviate the names of his other nemeses either (Peter the Panda, Planty the Potted Plant, etc.).
The show takes place in Danville, which is in Jefferson County which is in the Tri-State Area. Danville is named after creator Dan Povenmire and Jefferson County is named after co-creator Jeff 'Swampy' Marsh.
Phineas and Ferb often give relevant facts.
Several songs have been reused, such as P&F's mom's one hit wonder song that was later played as elevator music, and the Love Handel hit playing on the radio for Dr. Doofensmirtz.
It is never explained who Ferb's mother is, or who Phineas and Candace's father is.
