Hail Doofania! Is one of my favourite episodes because it shows how much of their identities and worldview teenagers attach to their clothing.
That’s why when Vanessa and Candace accidentally switch clothing, the other characters’ story arcs flip too.
There’s the obvious matter of Phineas and Ferb building an -inator, and saying how it will “cover the entire Tri-State area” with a rainbow.
Then there’s Doof building something ridiculously large that Vanessa considers “proof” to finally “bust” her dad for being evil.
Then there’s the entire thing disappearing indirectly because of Phineas and Ferb’s -inator; it caused a fisherman to get distracted and blow Doofania’s inner tube out.
There’s also the more subtle matter of Perry’s collar, which is essentially a trap that prevents him from doing what he needs to do.
Ultimately, Perry is the one who destroys Phineas and Ferb’s -inator by hitting the self-destruct button, with the boys questioning why they put in a self-destruct button in the first place- something that happens with Doof quite often.
There’s also the parallel of Doof saying “Look at who decided to show up”, which is basically a version of “There you are Perry”
What I found relatively more interesting was that the boys’ goal was fundamentally misguided, as Isabella meant that she’d never seen a unicorn before, not a rainbow.
This is an interesting parallel, which I think points towards Doof’s mission to take over the Tri-State area being misguided, and that what he actually wants is love and acceptance.
Another equally interesting observation is when Vanessa complains to her friend about her clothes being switched, saying “how many evil scientists’ daughters do you see...”, but being cut off by seeing that her father was up to something.
This is something that we usually see Candace do- complaining on the phone when she suddenly sees her brothers doing something bustable.
But what intrigues me is that Vanessa associates her clothing with being an evil scientist’s daughter, that she perhaps felt it was more appropriate to be goth if her father was already “evil”.
This hints towards how closely interlinked our identities are with our parents’, especially when we’re younger.
We also see Candace becoming more overtly confident with herself, something that is not usually seen, and implies that wearing different clothing makes her feel different too.
Overall, it’s an episode with a lot of fun and introspection and I love it.

Wait but in Agent Doof, Linda doesn’t seem surprised by a picture of Ferb and Phineas together as a baby and even thanks Candace for showing her an old photo, and I always assumed they met at like. 4, but in that episode they seemed more like 2 (the song Little Brothers shows a picture that looks like them meeting when they look closer to 4) so they met a lot younger than I assumed.

Hi! Who's your favorite PnF character? And what headcanons do you have for them? x3
Oh ho ho ho my favorite character 😏
It’s fucking Ferb Fletcher
Alliteration at its finest.
First I’m explaining why because if you go through my blog you will find so. So much. Ferb content.
It’s not even my most liked content! That, my friend, goes to Perry the Platypus (my second favorite character, thank you very much). So, it isn’t about likes (like all good things are that aren’t about likes). So what is it?
Also side note I’ve already taken my sleep medication, one of which is an anxiety pill, so that’s why this is so. Hyper I guess is the word.
Scenario: you are a young, semi verbal, probably autistic kid. Your parents have already put you through speech therapy and blamed your sister when you didn’t want to talk, so help them. You also think 16 years old is the epitome of coolness and never want to be 16 You like TV, but more as a moron fascination. You don’t see yourself on that screen, just caricatures of what you believe you’re going to grow up to be (you won’t, btw). ￼￼
Suddenly, there’s a show called Phineas and Ferb. It’s animated (which is already proving to be a preferred genre for you) and the people have weird shaped heads. You’ve seen commercials about it’s premiere but you didn’t think you’d see it! Later you learn it was a rerun, but besides the point! The characters appear and the triangle boy (you don’t remember names, of course) seems like a bitch but you don’t know that word so you don’t think it. You think it’s funny instead.
Then you have a realization. The F shaped boy isn’t.... talking??? He was in the main title! Has as much screen time as the triangle shaped boy! Oh, and triangle boy works with it, not pushing it away????
Do you know how fucking humanizing that feels? I was a kid. I didn’t even know what ableism meant. I still thought that my speech therapist was a baby sitter that played games with my sister and I! Now, Phineas and Ferb is not a perfect show. However. That was the first AND best way I’ve ever seen myself in a character. I normally see myself in the aliens. The robots. The mole people. But there he was. Ferb Fletcher.
Now, you didn’t ask for that. I did. I wanted to say it. So, now onto what you did ask! Theories! What this blog was made for!
He and Vanessa never dated. They were just friends. Fuck that romance bullshit.
Sometimes he gets in moods where he doesn’t shut up. Most the time, these only happen around Phineas because he feels most comfortable around him, but it occasionally will happen around other people
He randomly gets noises stuck in his head but he never lets them out because that only makes them louder to him so they stay stuck in Ferb land
Never fought anyone, but would (for others, of course)
If you ever get into an argument with him, well. The best you can hope for is a soft defeat.
Collects stickers but never sticks them anywhere
Also marbles. Seems like a marble guy.
Doesn’t like water until he’s in The Mood (except water slides :))
Knows the difference between except and accept
Chaotic until lawful. No in-betweens
Random glow up either junior (16-17) or senior (17-18) year. No explanation.
Hates cleaning his ears
Hates having long hair or facial hair
Really likes sunflower seeds
Very picky about Mac and cheese
Actually hates eating a lot of stuff but doesn’t tell Linda or Lawerence cause he doesn’t want to seem ungrateful but, combined with what Lawerence already knew and Linda’s Mom Sense, eventually everyone who cooks for him knows what he does and doesn’t like
Hates the smell of bacon. Not meat. Just bacon.
Really likes muffins
Likes charms tho :)
Can’t stop itching mosquito bites (he puts band aids on them so they don’t bleed)
Never picked his nose. Like. Never (besides the nose picking machine, of course)
Likes turtleneck sweaters :)
Likes vests too :)
Has to get ripped jeans with rips below the thighs because he’ll pick at them otherwise
Actually, he really likes chains on pants as well, but only if they can be unattached
Hates that jumping raisin experiment. Absolute hatred.
It’s so hard to get him to hate someone but once he does :)))))))
Candace and him got along really well until she started hating on Perry and then he went :( and dipped until she stopped
Doesn’t like the number 5
Even though he’s a great editor, he loves shittily editing stuff just to fuck around
Brain goes 😐 sometimes and he can’t stop it
But then again sometimes it goes 🤩
Does NOT like snow
Rain is itchy
Likes Megamind but not as much as Phineas
He and Isabella are best friends
They shop together and talk shit >:)
Will creep people out randomly (sometimes on purpose sometimes not :))
Loves tattoos and he and Isabella get a matching one
Now, that is all for now because I feel sleep threatening to take over me. If you wanna see more Ferb theories well. Just. Look at my blog.

The only people who are allowed to call Candace "Candy" are Jeremy, Stacy, and her mom.
Ferb was the first one to do it (good sounds 😏) but she hated it so now he doesn’t say her name or anything (Candace doesn’t mind him doing it anymore but absolutely hates Phineas doing it so uhhh yeah)

The best part about the latter half of Phineas and Ferb is that Linda and Lawrence are shown to be progressively bigger and bigger weirdos. These two “relax” by sharing a sensory deprivation tank and eating pie.

83. "Another sleepless night, huh?"
Hey there here I bring you a request I got from a guest. I'm sorry it took me a lot of time to get this done, but here it is, and I hope you'll all enjoy it :)
Lawrence rolled on his bed with a soft moan. He smiled stretching out his arm with the idea of hug his wife. But he was surprised when all what he reached was an empty space instead of his lovely Linda.
Slowly, the man opened his eyes and saw how effectively, his wife wasn’t there. He sighed closing his eyes and shook his head.
“Here we go again…”
With a tired sigh, Lawrence stood up and took his dressing gown. He had an idea of where his wife was. Walking slowly, letting his eyes to adapt to the darkness, Lawrence walked out of his room and through the corridor direct to the stairs. He walked down and walked directly to the living room. There he found her.
Linda was standing – covered with her own dressing gown – next to the transparent sliding door that allowed to go to the garden. She was looking at the tree they had there with a sad expression.
Lawrence approached to his wife and kindly put a hand on her shoulder to let her know he was there, at her side, as he would always be.
“Another sleepless night, huh?”
Linda didn’t look at him, her eyes kept looking the empty garden with a terrible sad expression.
“I miss them Lawrence…”
The man looked at his wife with a sad expression. He knew it was that. Since Candace, Phineas and Ferb… well, it had been hard for Linda this big change in their lives.
“I know Honey. But… we knew this would happen… someday.”
Linda shook her head. She knew what her husband said was true, but still… it was too much painful… it felt like a thorn digging into her heart.
“It happened to much fast. I wish they would be still here.” Linda muttered with tears in her eyes. Just seeing this picture, instantly Lawrence hurried to hug his wife. He felt this is what most she needed right now.
“Yes Linda, me too… but our kids grow up… they have all their own families now…” Lawrence paused “Candace with Jeremy, and she’s pregnant of her first child. Do you remember what names had she chosen for them?”
Linda let out a soft laugh remembering how her oldest daughter always talked about the names she would put to her children.
“Yes… Xavier if she had a boy or Amanda if she had a girl.”
Lawrence smiled at his wife. It seemed his words to her were working, but he also knew it wasn’t enough, he must continue talking to her in order to cheer her up. That’s what husbands are there for – among a lot of other things of course.
“Yes, and soon she’ll find out if our first grandchildren will be a boy or a girl.”
Linda closed her eyes and let her husband to embrace her. She felt safe and sound with him… Linda thought on what her husband had just told her.
“Our first grandchildren…” she said almost in a whisper “Oh Lawrence, it seems it was yesterday when she called me every day, telling all the crazy things Phineas and Ferb apparently always build. She was just a teen trying to get her brothers busted.”
Lawrence smiled slightly. He remembered that, and he also remembered to have seen some of those… ‘crazy things’ his sons did. But he honestly thought it wasn’t something bad, quite opposite, Phineas and Ferb had an incredible imagination, like when they turned their family car into a Monster track to help Candace to learn to drive. They did it to help their sister. And candace… Lawrence had been always amused how his daughter was able to talk hours and hours, how could she always have the energy to literally took Linda from wherever she was and take her back home just to ‘show her what Phineas and Ferb had done.
“Yes, she had always been a very energic girl, and now… she’s going to be mom!” Lawrence sounded genuinely proud of Candace. Ans so he was with his two boys “And what to say about Phineas and Ferb? Oh Phineas… it took him a lot of time, but he finally realized Isabella was in love of him and he also was in love with her, and now they both are just married couple.”
“Yes… Phineas has a strong imagination, but it seems sometimes it’s hard from him to realize the most evident things.” Agreed Linda with a soft smile in her face.
“And what to say of Ferb? He’s like my father.” Lawrence was giggling while he said that.
“What do you mean?” Linda separated from her husband and looked at him with an amused expression. She sounded genuinely confused, and Lawrence couldn’t blame her. He cleared his throat.
“Oh, you know, my father didn’t care to wait – even if that meant to wait almost an eternity – to know the perfect girl who will be his wife.” He paused “Ferb is like him. He doesn’t care if he lives alone waiting for the one he’ll marry with,”
“But… to live alone… it would have been better for him to live here with us.” Tried to reason Linda. It was better to live in company of those you love than live completely alone “Who knows what is he doing living on his own?”
“Linda… you know Ferb has always been a very independent person.” Explained the man with glasses. “He decided to leave so we could have our privacy. Also, he wanted to learn to solve his own issues, even if I’m pretty sure he already knows how to solve them.”
Linda’s sad expression came back, as she looked again to the empty garden where her kids along with their friend played so many times. It was hard to see now this garden every day and see there was no kid there playing. Linda sniffed. She knew what her husband was saying was true, but it didn’t make it less painful. To have three extraordinary children living with them, and now… they had none left. They were… alone.
“Honey… I know it’s hard to live alone after years of having lived all together,” said Lawrence with the kindest voice he could put “but… things aren’t the same forever. Also… you know… our kids promised to visit us whenever they could.” He smiled at his wife to prove this was a reason for hope and to try to be happy “Give them a chance to do it, they’ll come, you’ll see.”
“I hope you’re right.” Said Linda sniffing again. Lawrence could do nothing else than hug his wife one more time.
“Of course, I am! Our kids won’t abandon us.” He kissed her on her forehead. “I think it’s time to go to bed. You’ll see how tomorrow you’ll see things in a different way.”
“Yes… let’s come back to sleep.”
Linda nodded and both headed to their room. Again, on their bed, Linda looked at her husband with a kind smile. He had his eyes closed and couldn’t see she was watching at him.
“Yes, Honey?” Lawrence opened his eyes and looked at his wife.
Lawrence smiled kindly at her
“You’re welcome Linda, you can always count on me.”

Wait okay since Phineas and Ferb both have the effect that gives them luck and it's equated to Murphy's Law, which is hereditary, does that mean Linda and Lawrence also have extreme luck?

We’ve seen her birthday, but GOD imagine the shit that Linda’s kids would do on Mother’s Day. Also Vivian? Treated like a queen. Mrs. Tjinder would get nothing but the best. Biffany? Well, it wouldn’t be other’s version of spoiled but it’d be amazing for her. All the kids in the Dwampyverse definitely make their moms feel like QUEENS!

Hi, I've never watched Phineas and Ferb, but I've seen the "doofenshmirtz is phineas’ dad" theory and I'm actually very interested in seeing it ripped to shreds if you're still interested in doing that
of COURSE i'm interested in doing it who do you take me for?
so the three big reasons for the theory are that phineas and doofenshmirtz both have triangle heads and similar hairstyles, that they're both inventors, and that linda and doof went on a date together at one point. these are shit reasons and here's why:
- they're literally cartoon characters. jeremy and candace have the same shaped heads and you don't see anyone saying they're secretly related. sometimes cartoon characters look similar. because they're cartoon characters.
- the fact that they're both inventors means nothing. not every inventor is related. they're so clearly grasping for straws with this one.
- linda and doof went on ONE date. they went on one date back in the eighties. it was one shitty date, and they didn't even end up seeing the movie they were supposed to because it was such a bad date that linda made him drive her home early.
- doof literally ends the flashback to the date with "And I never saw her again." this establishes that the last time he saw linda was in the eighties, and phineas is around ten during the show, which completely tears the theory apart. phineas' wiki page states that he was "born in America in the late 1990s," years after the one shitty date.
- dan povenmire has literally confirmed that the theory is bullshit.
- also! the fascination with finding phineas' "real dad" is so opposed to what the show is about!! P&F gave us such a lovely representation of a heathy blended family!! lawrence is candace and phineas' "real dad" and linda is ferb's "real mom"!!
