    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.

It's one of those shows that reminds me TV is still somewhat alive. Seriously, thanks Phineas and Ferb, not only have you kept TV entertaining for me by actually being funny and clever unlike all the other crap on TV, but you have also inspired me with the optimism of Phineas. Detailing this season a bit more, it's a lot better than the first two, and the show keeps feeling greater! Expand

    This is simply great. Best animated show on Disney ever, sorry Mickey but you know Perry flyer. And is smart and good enough to make a songThis is simply great. Best animated show on Disney ever, sorry Mickey but you know Perry flyer. And is smart and good enough to make a song every episode and there usually catchy, pointless and sometimes stupid, but like super catchy. I will recommend this I mean they just showed an episode with the robot dog from the theme song in 2012 and we've seen it in the trailer back in 2007 they be making like 200 episodes in one year.

    Disney Channel is a synonym for bad tv in my book, but one of the few exceptions it this show.

It isn't on the level of south park, but it both an uplifting funny show that offers silly moments and the scripts are wonderfully creative. Expand

    alright, here it goes, a negative review of Phineas and Ferb, now, before you immediately press the not helpful button, at least listen toalright, here it goes, a negative review of Phineas and Ferb, now, before you immediately press the not helpful button, at least listen to what i have to say.
    This show was alright for a season or 2, but after a while this series just becomes repetitive and sometimes annoying, i can describe almost all of the episodes in 1 paragraph. the boys think of something to do, they ask where there platypus is, the platypus is actually a secret agent, the platypus is sent to foil an "evil" villain, and always beats him. goes back to the boys, there sister wants to "bust" them and frantically tries to contact their mother (with no luck) add in a montage of them building and or enjoying their creation with a song in the background about what there doing. their sister rushes their mom to the backyard when suddenly somehow the platypus subplot somehow intervenes making the creation the brothers make suddenly disappear just before the mother see's it, the platypus returns, end of episode.
    that's not an exaggeration, almost ALL of the episodes are like this, i liked the series for a while, but after the second season it just got to repetitive, there is no originality and they all have the exact. same. story! im sorry but i just don't find it enjoyable anymore, if you disagree with this that's fine, this is just my opinion
