"Not Yet, Ferb" refers to a memorable scene from animated series Phineas and Ferb in which Phineas stops his stepbrother Ferb from hitting another character with a spiked mace. Online, the image macro based on the scene has been used in reference to situations when a generally unlikable person or organization does something likable, as well as in other meanings.


On March 8th, 2008, episode 22 "Dude, We're Getting the Band Back Together" of season one of Phineas and Ferb animated series premiered in the United States.[9] In one scene of the episode, character Ferb prepares to hit a person with a morning star, with his brother Phineas stopping him.
