Phineas and Ferb (also known as Disney's Phineas and Ferb) is an American animated television series. Originally broadcast as a preview on August 17, 2007 on Disney Channel, the series follows two suburban[1] stepbrothers[2] on summer vacation. Each day the pair devise ambitious, involved plans and inventions to stave off boredom, often bringing them into conflict with their snoopy sister, Candace. The series follows a standard plot system; running gags occur every episode, and the B-Plot almost always features the boys' pet platypus, Perry, acting as a secret agent to fight an evil scientist named Heinz Doofenshmirtz. The two plots intersect at the end to erase all traces of the boys' project just before Candace can show it to their mother.



The show follows the adventures of stepbrothers Phineas Flynn and Ferb Fletcher, who live in the town of Danville and are determined to pursue an active summer vacation and defeat boredom.[2] Their sister, Candace Flynn, is obsessed with "busting" their schemes and ideas, and usually calls their mother to report the boys' activities.[3] The boys' pet platypus, Perry, meanwhile, acts as a secret agent for an all-animal government organization[7][8] called the "O.W.C.A." (Organization Without a Cool Acronym), fighting the evil Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz.[9]
Much of the series' humor relies on running gags used in every episode with slight variation.[10] For example, several episodes feature an adult asking Phineas if he is too young to be performing some complex activity, to which he responds "Yes, yes I am." Other times, there are two adults, and one asks the question and the other one says, "Yes, yes he is". Also, Phineas and Ferb, before starting their inventions, ask "Hey, where's Perry?". [2] Perry and Doofenshmirtz's confrontations generally lead to the destruction or disappearance of whatever Phineas and Ferb are constructing or taking part in that day.[9][10] Other running gags include catchphrases, such as Phineas' line "Ferb, I know what we're gonna do today," Doofenshmirtz's "Curse you, Perry the Platypus," and Isabella's "Whatcha Doing?"and them never going to school even when new episodes come out when kids go to school.
