Do you think that in "Fly on the Wall" Perry actually committed a crime helping Doof? Let me explain: unlike other episodes where they collaborated in which Doof, technically, did nothing illegal and dangerous, in the aforementioned episode, Perry was helping him to overcome a block, but with the result of helping him to create an inator with potentially disastrous consequences. I mean, even though Perry would eventually destroy the inator as always, he still voluntarily collaborated on a crime
Hmm, while at least some of the things Doof does have been considered a crime in-universe, i’m not really sure whether you can apply real-life laws/legal issues to the PnFverse (and the Tri-State Area in particular). Despite being connected to the government, O.W.C.A. does seem to allow agents to assist their nemeses as long as they stop their plans in the end,
but then again that could just be how Major Monogram handles his division since he’s not above things like bending rules to be petty.
Overall, results appear to be inconclusive regarding the legality of aiding and abetting when concerned with the PnFverse’s Good/Evil dynamic.

In whose episodes (That are not specials) Phineas ends angry/aggravated/stressed out/irked? Some of the episodes I remember where that happens are No More Bunny Business and Fly on the Wall (Sorry for bad english).
Hmm, adding “stressed out”/”irked” to your criteria broadens the findings a bit. I believe Phineas does tend to become aggravated solely in special episodes and, yes, “No More Bunny Business” and “Fly on the Wall,” but he does also seem to appear stressed regarding Baljeet in “The Baljeatles”/“Bully Bromance Breakup” and openly states that Buford’s annoying in “Voyage to the Bottom of Buford”/seems vaguely annoyed with Candace in “The Best Lazy Day Ever.” (It’s fine!)

okay so, in a human au *all* the agents would be human, yes? so, what about agent turkey? as carl says in the episode Traffic Cam Caper "Sir, we lost Agent T last November.", insinuating he got eaten for thanksgiving. so, if he's a human in this au, what happened to him? did he still get eaten? (and side note, was perry a close friend of agent turkey's?)
in reference to 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Okay, I desperately need to know the answer to this too so I gotta defer to th expertise of @sallytheweirdperson for that one fjkdhalkfda

Sorry if this has been asked before, but do you know what episodes are more OWCA based? (ex: “Undercover Carl” “Where’s Perry” or that one where Perry was a butler) Love this blog btw!
The butler episode was “The Remains of the Platypus,” and here are some more O.W.C.A.-centric ones: “Thanks But No Thanks,” “Sidetracked,” “I Was a Middle Aged Robot,” “Minor Monogram,” “Agent Doof,” “No More Bunny Business,” “Sipping with the Enemy,” "Druselsteinoween," “It’s About Time!” “Misperceived Monotreme,” “Perry the Actorpus” “Traffic Cam Caper,” “Excaliferb,” “Phineas and Ferb: Summer Belongs to You!” “Phineas and Ferb Save Summer,” and “O.W.C.A. Files!” I’m glad you like the blog!

Norm’s first frown - from “Traffic Cam Caper.” But it’s okay! Guess he’s walking!

Let me see if I got Norm right. He was Doof's inator in 'Greece Lighting' cause he watched a documentary that said The Enemy of the Platypus is man. Then he appeared next in 'Traffic Cam Caper' for Perry to get the disc without being seen. In these eps, he was much bigger than he is now. It wasn't till 'Hail Doofania' that he was as we uncommonly know him today, because they needed someone to be Doofs sidekick for that episode's joke to work,right
I’m not quite sure what you’re asking--if you’re talking about his size, it tends to vary between episodes/scenes!

Hey Wanderers, I know what we’re going to do today! We’re going to give the last Throwback Friday of July the greatest send off ever!
That’s right, you herd it folks! Today marks the final Throwback Friday of July 2020. Man, I sure had a blast showing you a bunch of old drawings and toys I had over this month but now that it’s coming to close, I wanted to make sure it go’s out with a bang. Since August is coming this weekend, that means summer will be over and everybody will be starting school but I decided to take a tiny trip down memory lane with my two old pals, Phineas and Ferb. Starring in their very first chapter book I had of them, Freeze Frame!
When I was ten years old, there was no doubt that when I discovered Phineas and Ferb I fell deeply in love with it! Especially the boy’s pet platypus, Perry. Because as a kid, I was used to loving characters that didn’t talk. I didn’t know they had chapter books for the show until I discovered this one at my elementary school's book fair and I knew I HAD to have it! My dad bought it for me and ever since then, I took this book everywhere and read it for hours and hours!
Freeze Frame retells two of Phineas and Ferb’s endless summer’s adventures, Traffic Cam Caper and Bowl-A-Roma Drama. It also includes a lot of pictures from the TV series too. As you can tell from this book, it has been really, really well loved. I still have memories of taking this book with me in the living room sitting down while watching the actual episode, following along with the book. Speaking of which, I also remembered that when I had this book, I didn’t really have a Perry plush at the time so I decided to sleep with the book open to a picture of Perry on the staircase. I know, it was a bit crazy but that’s just the way I roll in 2010.
As I started getting older, I would usually take this book with me throughout middle school and read it again after all these years. Trust me, reading this chapter book was like going back into my nostalgic memories I had with this show and my obsession with it still continues to this day.
Phineas and Ferb was one of the great Disney Channel shows ever! I’m so glad to be apart of the fandom for it and even in this new year, I’m rewatching the series on Disney+. Trust me, watching it again sure dose know how to hit me with loads of memories I had with all of my friends from Danville!
I wonder if there might be a junior novel for the upcoming movie, Candace Against The Universe coming out soon? Guess will have to wait and see...
are there episodes where perry and doof work together?
Yes, Perry and Doof chose to work together in: “Dude, We’re Getting the Band Back Together”/“Thaddeus and Thor”/”Unfair Science Fair Redux (Another Story)”/”Run, Candace, Run”/“Meapless in Seattle”/”Phineas and Ferb: Summer Belongs to You!”/”Skiddley Whiffers”/”Agent Doof”/Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension/”Road to Danville”/”Fly on the Wall”/”Sidetracked”/”Primal Perry”/“Phineas and Ferb Save Summer”/”Druselsteinoween”/”Father’s Day”/”Last Day of Summer”/”Doof 101”/”Act Your Age!”
Some more dubious ones (episodes where the working is more brief/incidental or non-voluntary) are: “Rollercoaster” (they were both trying to stop the Magnetism Magnifier at the end), “Put That Putter Away” (they were just chilling for a fair portion of the episode), “Traffic Cam Caper” (Doof lent Perry Norm so he could accomplish his goal), “Oh, There You Are, Perry” (Doof installed a release button inside Perry's trap), “Robot Rodeo” (Doof threw Perry escape plans so he could buy more time for him to finish his entry), ”Phineas and Ferb Interrupted“ (Perry was using Doof to restore Phineas and Ferb), “Brain Drain” (Doof was controlling Perry’s volition), “The Remains of the Platypus” (Doof brainwashed Perry into being his butler), “Just Our Luck” (Doof was carting around a sleeping Perry until the end of the episode), “Cheers for Fears” (after Perry saved Doof from the vending machines, Doof willingly destroyed his inator), “Where’s Perry?” (Doof helps out at the end), and “Night of the Living Pharmacists”/”Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel” (they both independently fought against the Doof zombies/Marvel villains).
Even more dubious ones (episodes where they’re not actively fighting against each other, but technically aren’t working together, either) are: ”Face Your Fear”/”Oil on Candace”/”Nerds of a Feather”/”The Doonkleberry Imperative”/”Lost in Danville”/”Love at First Byte.”

Phineas and Ferb Episode Order
Hi! I’ve been sorting Disney Channel shows by production code since both Disney Channel and Disney+ had them aired/listed out of order. Since this is based solely off of production code it may not be 100% in chronological order but in my opinion it’s better than any of the orders Disney has currently.
The episode number used is what they have the episode listed as on Disney+ so it might not be the same number it is listed as somewhere else.
I will also include any movies/crossovers that go along with the show.
I’ll be tagging them as #disney ep order
Also, if you find any mistakes, please tell me so I can fix them! And let me know if there’s a show you want me to do.
Under the cut you will find all the episodes of Phineas and Ferb sorted by production code.

sorry for the long post, i'm on mobile and cant put a read more but.... drumroll please.... due to popular demand here it is! Phineas Has ADHD: The Essay.
Hyperfixation on building/inventing things: Even more specifically amusement park rides ("Rollercoaster", "Rollercoaster The Musical", "One Good Scare", "Leave The Busting To Us", "Don't Even Blink", "Cheer Up Candace", "Delivery Of Destiny", etc.) Now, you can argue that he's a kid, and rides are fun, so of course he likes them, but if you look at it from a building standpoint, from an engineering standpoint? Phineas' interest lies in fun, of course, but he also must have an extreme interest in the engineering aspect of a ride in order to be skilled and knowledgeable enough to build them, and to be able to focus on the task so wholly.
He also gets incredibly attached to very specific things that some people often find strange, which seems like evidence of hyperfixation to me. (E.g.: aglets in "Tip of the Day", dental hygiene in "Bully Bust", Bulgarian folk dancing in "The Beak", detective movies in "Finding Mary McGuffin") hot tubs in "Bully Bromance Breakup", "Lotsa Latkes", "Swiss Family Phineas")
HYPERFOCUS: He and Ferb will dedicate their whole day to just one idea that they have. Phineas is able to weaponize his hyperfocusing talent incredibly well and stick to one task, but only if it is something he is extremely interested in — for example: In "Bully Bromance Breakup", he becomes almost unable to function without the stimulation of inventing, to the point where climbing a mountain with his friends—something he, by all accounts, should enjoy—becomes a difficult task for him.
He displays forgetfulness: In "Mom's Birthday", Phineas forgets it is his mom's birthday until he hears Candace mention it, and then he feels extremely guilty. We then see a montage of him, during various situations from the previous episodes (on the rollercoaster, etc.) telling Ferb: "We can't forget mom's birthday." Even though this was of course, a bit, if you take this as being canon (which there's no real reason not to), it means Phineas was constantly talking about their mom's birthday for weeks leading up to the event because he really didn't want to forget it and he was worried that he would (and in the end, he did), implying he may have a consistent tendency to be forgetful.
Phineas has an intense love of summer, and is implied to have a dislike for school— which is natural for any kid his age, but it's not hard to imagine that he might feel cooped up and creatively stifled during school. Especially if we put his attitude towards school next to that of Baljeet, with whom he shares a love of learning and knowledge, it's hard to ignore the difference. Being as we've seen Phineas get agitated when he's not able to build and invent freely and on his own terms ("Bully Bromance Breakup", "Summer Belongs To You"), it's easy to imagine he may struggle in a public school environment.
He has impulsive and thrill-seeking tendencies, which are evident in many of the big ideas. ("Escape From Phineas Tower", "Rollercoaster", "Ain't No Kiddie Ride", "The Beak", "One Good Scare", "Phineas and Ferb-Busters", "Leave The Busting To Us", ETC.) Adrenaline-seeking behaviour is common in individuals with ADHD and goes hand-in-hand with a low tolerance for boredom which Phineas explicitly states himself to possess in the very first episode of the show. ("Rollercoaster")
However, on the flip side to his aversion to boredom, he can also spend literally hours just standing in the backyard, not even talking, if that's just what he feels like doing that day. ("Best Lazy Day Ever")
He is highly energetic and is the most talkative one of his friends. He has also suggested having an awareness and perhaps an insecurity that he talks too much in some situations. ("Misperceived Monotreme")
He sometimes has trouble with listening, and interrupts people, especially when he's excited: in "Ready For The Bettys", when they stumble upon Perry's lair, Phineas assumes Ferb built everything and doesn't listen, constantly interrupting when Ferb tries to protest; in "Hail Doofania", he assumes that he knows what Isabella is talking about (not having seen a rainbow before) and makes it his mission for the day to do what he thinks she means, and doesn't take the time to hear her out when she tries to explain otherwise because he's too invested in/excited about the project he has in mind.
Obliviousness / missing of social cues: The most obvious example is Isabella's crush on him, which he consistently fails to notice. ("Chronicles of Meap", "Meapless in Seattle", "That Sinking Feeling", "Happy New Year", "Summer Belongs To You", "Happy Birthday Isabella", "Doofapus", "It's No Picnic") He also seems not to understand that Candace wants to get them in trouble, nor that he actually probably would get in trouble if his mom knew what he and Ferb were doing. In fact, he gets excited about sharing their endeavors with Linda, clearly oblivious to the potential repercussions. ("Traffic Cam Caper", "What'd I Miss", "Suddenly Suzy")
Highlighted Episodic Evidence
Chronicles of Meap/Meapless in Seattle
Phineas's dismissal of Isabella's "cuteness" comments shows again his difficulty picking up on social cues, especially when distracted by a mission. He does not seem to understand, or at least does not acknowledge, Isabella's clear frustration with him. He does not understand that he is dismissing Isabella's feelings, because to him it feels obvious that she is cute and he doesn't think he needs to say it. Followed up in "Meapless in Seattle" with the "You think I'm cute?" "It's a scientific fact!" interaction—Phineas is not understanding that this isn't really how to give a compliment; he does not seem to realize that by not acknowledging Isabella's cuteness he could be hurting her feelings/nurturing her insecurities.
That Sinking Feeling
Once again, he misses cues from Isabella about her feelings for him, or if he understands them, he does not outwardly acknowledge them. He also tries to create romance for Mishti and Baljeet by taking "scientifically" romantic things, based upon his research (mostly the movie Titanic): candles, live music, the situation of a sinking ship... He over-does these things in a calculated way to try and curate the most scientifically romantic situation possible. This also mirrors Candace's opinion about his cold, calculated methods in "Perry Lays an Egg".
Cheer Up Candace
Phineas cares about Candace and when he sees her upset, he wants to help her, and he makes it his goal to do so. He hears the first step from Isabella's magazine is a makeover and he immediately thinks of a clown. He sets off to execute his plan without consulting anyone (except Ferb) and after it goes, as you can expect, not well, he realizes in hindsight that his impulsive idea was built on flawed logic. However, rather than dwell on this, he decides to dive right into the next step and he continues to do wildly over the top, fantastical versions of the magazine suggestions. I think this demonstrates a lack of understanding for social cues as well as impulsivity and impatience. Furthermore, he doesn't even wait to hear step two before setting out to achieve step one, and he doesn't ask Isabella her opinion or even listen to her suggestions once he has entered his own Idea Zone. Also, the Mix 'n' Mingle Machine is a great example of his unconventional and greatly efficiency-focused thought processes—
he thinks of it as the most efficient way to meet as many people as possible in a short time, demonstrating a clear misunderstanding of what the actual intent of "meeting someone" was in the magazine. He is also basing this idea on his personal notions of what he finds fun, not what Candace would necessarily want.
Summer Belongs To You
When stranded on the island, Phineas shows an intense frustration when he's unable to put an optimistic spin on things. He also has a clear discomfort when he is without any tools to build with. Again, we see his hyperfocus on inventing (in this case: fixing the plane) get in the way of Isabella trying to have a romantic moment with him, and in the way of relaxing in general. She sees the sights of Paris, alone time with him, and chances to enjoy themselves, whereas Phineas sees things he could use as airplane parts, single-mindedly focused on his mission. And again he misses or does not acknowledge Isabella's frustration with him in the "It seemed like romance was a foregone conclusion" scene. This is strong evidence for Phineas' hyperfixation because he gets so caught up in his own world when it comes to inventing/building/working that he doesn't even notice what's going on around him, then he fails to see the irony of him identifying Candace&Jeremy and Ferb&Vanessa as romantic interests while entirely missing the fact that Isabella & him are also "a boy and a girl, alone in the city of love."
Also of note is his complete focus on completing the Summer Solstice goal. Because, despite the fact that they made it back to Danville safely after being in a pretty perilous situation—which should have become their main concern being as they were just stranded on an island with no food or way to call for help—he cannot be satisfied with that. Needing to get home before the sun sets for the sake of winning his bet and symbolically representing his worldview, he yells at candace when she doesn't want to get on the trike, because he's determined to still get there on time, intensely focused on both proving a point and upholding his personal values.
Happy Birthday Isabella
Isabella does not want an over-the-top surprise party, all she wants is to spend time alone with Phineas, but Phineas is so focused on his idea of her perfect birthday party that he does not seem to realize what her wishes are. He sends her away from him so that she won't know about the surprise, and does not even do so very gently (getting Buford to carry her away in a sack) instead of even asking her what she wants.
Bully Bromance Breakup
In this episode, Phineas is shown to get extremely distressed when he has to go even a short period of time without building/inventing anything. This is representative of a need for constant stimulation (which would explain why he is so adamant that he cannot put up with boredom). This also evidences his hyperfixation on building/inventing. The whole time that they're climbing the mountain with Baljeet, Phineas is completely preoccupied by his ideas for inventions, and after Baljeet rejects his ideas a few times, he gets increasingly agitated, eventually gets to a point where he is unable to climb anymore and has to get pulled up by the others, and he is shown rambling to himself about all of the invention ideas he has.
This is by no means a definitive list, and I'm sure there are many more moments in the show that provide evidence of these ideas, but this is the ones that stood out to me. Anyway, in conclusion, Phineas has ADHD. If you're still reading this incredibly long post by this point: uhh, thank you, I guess! Have a nice day. 💖
