Phineas and Ferb (TV Series 2007–2015) Poster



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".)
Jump to: Spoilers (5)
As of 2015, it is the longest running Disney animated show, lasting from 2007 to 2015
It took creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff 'Swampy' Marsh 16 years to get Phineas and Ferb (2007) on television.
It is never explained who Ferb's mother is, or who Phineas and Candace's father is.
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.
The first drawing of Phineas was on a piece of butcher's paper, drawn with crayon in a restaurant.
Although Ferb rarely speaks, he has been shown to have a great singing voice.
Sometimes Jeremy works at "Mr. Slushy Burger", and sometimes he works at "Mr. Slushy Dog".
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.
It is hinted in the series that Dr. Doofenshmirtz's could be German, the word "Doof" his name is German for stupid or idiot.
Phineas and Ferb: Phineas and Ferb Star Wars (2014) has Ferb's most lines.
Ferb's "large eye" changes depending on what direction he's facing. The large one is always the one furthest away from the screen.
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.
Dr. Doofenshmirtz often refers to previous episodes.
Jaret Reddick, lead singer of the band Bowling for Soup which does the theme song for Phineas and Ferb (2007), is the voice of Danny, lead singer of the fictitious band Love Händle in the series.
The giant floating baby head, which was first featured in Phineas and Ferb: One Good Scare Ought To Do It!: Parts 1 & 2 (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."
Dr. Doofenshmirtz's robot-man norm was originally a robot to target platypuses. In later episodes he is seen as his servant.
Phineas and Ferb often give relevant facts.
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.
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.).
Dr. Doofenshmirtz's name was originally Dr. Meddleshmirtz. Both also have the exact same number of letters, 13.
Candace's best friend Stacy is sisters with Ginger, one of the girls in Isabella's Fireside Girl troop.
Major Monogram said "Great Googly Moogly" was a quote from Maggie and the Ferocious Beast (1998) and a 1957 song by Sid Bradley.
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 has been seen in several episodes that Ferb has a crush on Dr. Doofenshmirtz's daughter Vanessa.
The family's last names are Flynn and Fletcher.
There are 104 days in summer vacation yet the whole series has 160 episodes
Dr. Doofenshmirtz's inventions usually end with "-inator".
Phineas and Ferb are step brothers. Yet in an episode they are trying to help their parents celebrate an anniversary by getting love handel back together. Considering that love handel is meant to be an "80's" band from before the birth of phineas ferb or candace leaves me wondering what the filler should be in this plot hole.

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

In the series finale, while the kids are riding Phineas & Ferb's grand finale ride, for a brief moment they are transformed into versions of themselves that are animated in the style of a traditional Disney character. Then immediately afterwards into photo realistic versions of the actors voicing them. That is, with the exception of Buford, who is not effected at all and then transformed into an octopus before all of them are returned to normal.
Buford owns life sized molds of all his friends (including Candace)
In the episode Rollercoaster: the musical when Candace is showing her mom the rollercoaster you can see the 2 Candaces from the future hiding behind a car. Which means when the future Candace went back to the past she went back to the day of the roller coaster (the Musical) not the first day of summer

In the series finale, Baljeet is looking at a list of possible coordinates on a GPS device. Although the Northern coords are in the correct format, the Western hours are missing. If 00 are substituted for the missing numbers, the majority of the coords on the list would be in Northern Africa.
