List of Phineas and Ferb episodes

The first season of Phineas and Ferb aired on Disney Channel from August 17, 2007 to February 8, 2009. The series introduces two step-brothers on summer vacation trying to make every day the best day ever, while their sister tries to bust them. The five main characters are brothers Phineas Flynn and Ferb Fletcher, their older sister Candace Flynn, secret agent Perry the Platypus, and the evil Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz.

Recurring characters are across-the-street neighbor Isabella Garcia-Shapiro, the boys' mom Linda Flynn-Fletcher, the boys’ dad Lawrence Fletcher, Perry's boss, Major Monogram, Jeremy Johnson, Baljeet, Buford Van Stomm, Stacy Hirano, and many more.


Writing style[edit]

The show uses four major writers to devise story ideas according to "strict guidelines", such as that the boys' schemes never appear to be "magical". Stories are reviewed at weekly sessions on a Monday, then simultaneously scripted and story-boarded. A very rough design is built before the storyboard, featuring little more than suggested scenes and dialogue, is drafted; the writers then gather for a "play-by-play" walk-through of the storyboard in front of the whole crew, whose reactions to the jokes are assessed before rewrites are made.[1] The writers as well include running gags in every episode, which are generally lines spoken by characters.[2] Almost every episode is set into two eleven-minute segments.[3]


Phineas and Ferb are voiced by Vincent Martella and Thomas Sangster, respectively.[4] Sangster was one of many British actors cast; Marsh lived in the United Kingdom for seven years, and developed a fondness for its people.[5] The rest of the cast includes Ashley Tisdale as their sister, Candace, Dee Bradley Baker as the secret agent platypus, Perry, Caroline Rhea as the mother, Linda Flynn Fletcher, Richard O’Brien as the father Lawrence Fletcher,[4] Kelly Hu as Candace's best friend Stacy, and Alyson Stoner as Isabella.[5] Creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff "Swampy" Marsh are uncredited as the voices of Dr. Doofenshmirtz and Major Monogram, respectively.
