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.

AU where Doofenshmirtz is the one to teach Vanessa how to tap dance and it's really cute father daughter bonding stuff
We all saw that time he and Perry danced, this is now canon as far as I'm concerned

AU where Isabella and Vanessa have an episode together where they hang out and learn to appreciate each other’s differences.
Its criminal this didn't happen

Suzy: *playing with dolls* Now everyone: Mr. Fuzzy would like to share!
Vanessa : Oh, I just love playing with dolls!
Suzy: We aren't playing!
Suzy: We're in group therapy.
Vanessa: Ohhhhhh. Thank God, because, you know, I heard Ken and Barbie are on the skids.
Vanessa : I heard it directly from Chatty Cathy. It seems that Ken found out that Barbie had a fling with G.I. Joe right before Desert Storm.
Suzy: Poor Ken.
Vanessa: Poor Barbie! One little indiscretion in 30 years, and it cost her the dream house.
Suzy: Barbie never said a word! She must be in denial.
Vanessa: Sure. Look at her feet. That's all from frustration. Never trust a woman who can't wear flats.

Phineas and Ferb, S1E3: The Magnificent Few/S’Winter
Hello, and welcome to the Watchathon, a blog where I watch an episode of TV every weekday, with a blog post where I write down my thoughts afterwards.
And now, here’s my thoughts on Season 1, Episode 3 of Phineas and Ferb: The Magnificent Few/S’winter!
The Magnificent Few
This is the debut of Vanessa, and she’s introduced as Dr. Doofenshmirtz’s assistant rather than his daughter. The reveal that she is his daughter is actually played for laughs, being a humorous twist that she was actually there for Take Your Daughter To Work Day.
Another thing which feels weird in retrospect when you’re looking back on the series like I am now. I would imagine when this episode first came out, people were expecting a dynamic similar to Drakken and Shego from Kim Possible. Partners in crime who both work together to take down our hero.
Instead, what we would end up getting is a father involving his daughter in his work, even though she doesn’t really care, which later develops into a very wholesome father-daughter bond. But I am getting ahead of myself, aren’t I?
First thing that stuck out to me: This is in July?! We’re there already?! I guess we can chalk it up partially to continuity being fluid, partially to a difference between production order and broadcast, and partially to how they did not expect to have four seasons and two movies, but still. That line hit me like a truck…
Moving on, we see the first interaction between Candace and Vanessa. It’s only a couple lines, but it is the first ever time that these two characters met.
All in all, I’d say that this is a pretty fun time. I would say a fun winter episode, but for whatever reason I’m not really certain I should be calling it that. Maybe it’s the amount of references to it being summer, maybe it’s just my preference for their later wintertime specials… Whatever the case, that’s not a mark against the episode. It was still incredibly enjoyable, and I’d still be all too willing to rewatch it, whatever time of year it is.

Doofenshmirtz: All right, all right. Here's the checkbook.
Vanessa: Thank you, Dad. I will tuck this away in the gaping void that was once my soul.
Doofenshmirtz: Don't lose the pen this time.

Doofenshmirtz: *taking the telephone from Norm, and walking out of the room* Oh, thank you, Norm. I'll take her in the library.
Norm: *to Vanessa* Miss Charlene loves to be taken in the library.

So there’s a Bones reference in Phineas and Ferb
I’m watching Phineas and Ferb because a.) Vanessa is beautiful and so my type and b.) Dr. Doofenshmirtz is so lovely of a father and the show is just good. But anyway the first Vanessa episode has Dr. D talking about how the world’s largest chocolate bar is on it’s way to the Smithsonian, which is a real episode on Bones. If you don’t know, ‘Bones’ (aka Temperance Brennan) works at the Smithsonian to solve murders. It’s a good show. Watch it. But the specific episode is called The Babe in the Bar (Season 6 episode 7). I’m reeling everyone.
