Phineas and Ferb is an American animated children’s TV show created by Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh that follows the outdoor adventures of a boy named Phineas Flynn and his English stepbrother Ferb Fletcher on summer vacation. Since its Disney Channel premiere on August 17th, 2007, the show has been met with high ratings and critical acclaims, as well as a large fan following on the Internet.
Taking place in the city of Danville, each episode usually contain 3 intertwining stories. Part one follows the daily lives of Phineas and his step brother Ferb as they spend their summer vacation inventing contraptions for having fun with their friends. Another storyline follows their older sister Candace, who constantly attempts, and fails, to thwart or "bust" her brothers' shenanigans.
The third part follows Perry, Phineas and Ferb's pet platypus, who is secretly an agent of O.W.C.A. ("Organization Without a Cool Acronym"). Under his codename Agent P, he is assigned to battle Doctor Doofenshmirtz, an evil and rather pathetic scientist who repeatedly tries to take over the Tri-state area; he's either defeated by Perry or his own stupidity. Usually, the outcome of the battle between Perry and Doofenshmirtz indirectly causes Phineas and Ferb's inventions to disappear.
The show is also notable for having a musical number in each episode, beginning in the first season with the episode "Flop Starz".
The show was created by veteran animation directors Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh, who previously worked on Family Guy and The Simpsons, respectively. Disney Channel aired the pilot episode "Rollercoaster" as a one-episode preview on August 17th, 2007, followed by an encore broadcast on September 28th, before officially premiering in North America on February 1st, 2008. The series ran for 222 episodes over the course of four seasons, with the last episode aired on June 12th, 2015. The show also had a direct-to-TV film titled Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension, which was aired on August 5th, 2011, as well as a theatrical film tentatively titled simply Phineas and Ferb, which is currently on production hold.
The show received 4 out of 5 stars with an appropriate watch age of 5 years old or above from Common Sense Media, a website dedicated to helping parents know if a cartoon is safe for their children to watch. The show also received an 8.0 rating from more than 16,000 users on IMDb and an 8.1 rating from 1,326 votes in TV.com. The show has also been nominated for 26 awards and has won 7.
Since its premiere, the show has gained a significant following online. The Phineas and Ferb Wiki currently contains more than 2,600 articles about the show. Fanfiction.net currently has more than 6,000 fanfics based on the show. The Phineas and Ferb subreddit, founded on February 27th, 2010, currently has more than 1,100 subscribers as of April 2015. On the artist Community site Deviantart, the key word "Phineas and Ferb" yields more than 71,000 results of fan art and cosplays.
Eyeless Phineas is a series of fan art which depict Phineas without his eyes. The fad originated in the episode "Excaliferb" in which, due to an error, Phineas's eyes disappeared for a few moments when he blinked.
My Name is Doof
My Name is Doof is a memorable scene from the episode "Phineas and Ferb Musical Cliptastic Countdown", where Doofenshmirtz tries to hypnotize the audience by using a video that is scientifically created by him to get stuck in people's heads. The scene has since spawn remixes and Youtube Poop type videos.
