From the Phineas & Ferb wiki comes the following quote by Doofenschmirtz from the season 4 episode Chears for Fears: Dr. Doofenshmirtz: Alright, so what are you afraid of, where is it? (looks around) What the hay? Nothing? (A business card slips through the ropes. Doof takes the card and reads it.) "Perry the Platypus: O.W.C.A. agent - Fearless.&...

Because that's what Chihuahuas's actually do Chihuahuas are notorious for shaking and shiver more than other dogs. So much in fact that inexperienced owners oftentimes believe a more serious health issue is causing this behavior. Source One of the most common reasons why Chihuahuas shake and shiver is simply because they are cold. With an average weight of ...

From the Phineas and Ferb wikia: It is currently unknown why the Talking Zebra calls Candace "Kevin". Although, as revealed in the Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension, Kevin may actually be the Candace of the Zebra's dimension. However, how, or even why the zebra seems to cross dimensions is unknown. Notice the silhouette of the image ...

Because Chihuahua do that in real life too and mostly there is no serious concern there. From petchidog.com: It is not uncommon for a Chihuahua puppy or dog to shake. Some refer to this as trembling or shivering. In fact, so many Chi's shake that some mistakenly believe that it is a trait or characteristic of the breed. It is very common, however there is ...

As answered on the relevant Wikipedia page: Ferb was named after a set-builder named Frank Leasure, a construction foreman on several Star Trek properties and a friend of Povenmire and Marsh. His wife Melinda, an artist on The Simpsons and King of the Hill nicknamed him "Ferb". In "Vanessassary Roughness" Ferb explains that his name is short for something,...

Very unlikely. We only know about one date which didn't even end well: Doofenshmirtz then tells him about one of his first dates. It was with Linda Flynn and they were in a drive-in theater, going to watch a film. Linda says that she would like to be a pop star one day. Doofenshmirtz sarcastically replies that he will take over the world, and she suggests ...

Depending on how you weigh bits of evidence, Danny, Swampy, and Bobbi could easily be anywhere from their early 50s to early 70s - but they're probably supposed to be about as old as Linda and Lawrence. Danny, the lead guitarist of Love Händel, sings a song about the History of Rock music. The very first verse of this song is: When I was a boy, down in ...

They are pretty aware of it. The fourth wall is broken many times in Phineas and Ferb. Here is a list with scenes and episodes and quotes when they did it. Here are some of the best ones that really show it: In "Agent Doof" when everyone gets turned into babies except Candace, Candace says it had "better wear off by the next episode." In "...

Going down the rabbit-hole of the Phineas and Ferb wikia, the song is inspired by Ievan Polkka The anime-inspired dance sequence in Tokyo parodies two popular internet memes, one which involves various animated characters dancing to a sped-up remix of the Swedish pop song Caramelldansen, and another which uses the Finnish song Ievan Polkka called "Loituma ...

Before the days of Amazon, when items were advertised for sale on the TV with a "call now! Our operators are standing by" number or on the back of a cereal box, typical shipping was 6-8 weeks.

One commanding officer has multiple animal agents under them and it has been shown multiple times. Even Major Monogram in epilogue of episode Traffic Cam Caper, make a song with many of his agents: But there are more agents than that under Monogram which we see in many episodes like Agent W (whale) and Agent E. But for ...

Phineas and Ferb wikia lists them quite well: Throughout the accompanying video, Phineas and Ferb parody well-known musicals. This encompasses Cats, The Phantom of the Opera, Oklahoma!, Singin' in the Rain, Fiddler on the Roof, West Side Story, The Music Man, Les Misérables, The King and I, Chicago and finally, Cabaret. Here are all those references ...

It sounds like it is a reference to a bunch of fastfood-(related) chains. Slushy the Clown is the mascot to Slushy Burger, which seems to be a reference to McDonald's: Mr. Slushy Dawg may be a reference to Slush Puppy, a popular brand of slush in fastfood restaurants. The clown resembles the Big Boy mascot with his signature "holding the hamburger in hand" ...

As mentioned by DustinDavis in comments, it is a universal symbol for "bad guy". Or in the words of TV Tropes Skeleton Motif: This trope can take many forms. While some characters may use real bones, photographs, or detailed drawings of bones to construct their motif, something as subtle as a pattern on a T-shirt or a piece of jewelry that vaguely ...

There are multiple references. We can say Easter Eggs. Candace's last name is Flynn. Zebra calls her Kevin every time which makes her Kevin Flynn. There are some famous people with the same name. Kevin Flynn is the main protagonist of Tron franchise. Kevin Flynn is a Canadian politician. (This could be a reference to "I voted for you Kevin" in Nerds of a ...

Disney Wikia gives a statement what was the inspiration for designing Ducky Momo character. From Ducky Momo Ducky Momo was directly inspired by writer Jon Colton Barry's younger sister, Kristin, who looks very cartoony/anime-like. She has extremely giant eyes and big, pouty, lips that give her a "duckfaced" appearance. In gradeschool children would often ...

Because they are special animals - ones that are anthropomorphic (have human-like skills). Working in special forces requires quite a bit of intelligence after all! It seems that in the Phineas universe it is rare but not unheard of - when Stacy finds the truth about Pery she is surprised, but not shocked. Out of universe: it is quite common that in ...

A second possibility from a theoretical point of view. The show hinges so much on surreality and breaking standard animation conventions. For example most of the music on the show has been shown to be diegetic. (Intentional and of origin within the story). Example: Doofenshmirtz' theme being recorded by him. As a result it is possible that Perry's theme is ...

My assumption would be either a) Because she's in charge and can add personal flair to her outfit. or b) Because she's in charge and it's to identify her as in charge.

No specific basis, but Japanese animation in general. I tweeted at Dan Povenmire and Swampy Marsh, asking if there was any specific inspiration: @tombquestwiki: Hey @DanPovenmire and @mmonogram - is there any specific inspiration for everybody's favorite duck, Ducky Momo? I see a lot of speculation, but nothing official, and it'd be nice to know and not ...

As of my Knowledge, this question makes little sense and is hypothetical, because there exists no Universe where the summer holidays never end!! Although after surfing on the net, I found a descriptive answer (though not fully satisfying). Money for inventions , its safe to assume that they get some sort of Pocket Money and also they don’t waste that ...

He is following the stereotype that mothers are generally more concerned about safety and fathers are more frequently absent-minded and willing to participate in their child's shenanigans. Molly and Arthur Weasley follow a similar pattern - when Fred, George, and Ron steal their father's flying car, Mrs. Weasley gives them the lecture of a lifetime, whereas ...

Probably they sold all their inventions as prototypes/finished products. We never see them permanently possessing any of their highly expensive and extravagant inventions. Also, they are not always destroyed. So it is safe to assume that someone anonymous pays them for all their inventions. Someone they themselves didn't know about. It might be Doofenshmirtz,...

Another thing detracting credibility from your theory is that not only is the head-shape thing not shown to be hereditary in-universe (Candace and Isabella both have semicircular heads, and they're clearly not related), but Phineas Flynn and Heinz Doofenshmirtz also have different variants of triangular head shape. Phineas, for example, has a long pointy ...
