Phineas and Ferb Main Characters

The following Phineas and Ferb characters appear in every espisode of the series.

Phineas Flynn

Phineas Flynn

One of the show's titular characters, alongside his step-brother strives to make every day of summer excellent.

Phineas Flynn, also known as Dinner Bell by Buford, is a boy in the Flynn-Fletcher family. He is the son of Linda Flynn and stepson of Lawrence Fletcher. His sister is Candace, and his stepbrother is Ferb. He is friends with Buford, Baljeet, and Isabella, who has a strong crush on him (if he returns it is so far unknown, although, he was shown to enjoy Isabella kissing him). He has a strong bond with Perry, their pet platypus, and he always wonders where he is.

Phineas Flynn is always thinking up ways to squeeze more fun out of every summer day and helps Phineas stay entertained. Unfortunately, it also gets him into trouble with his sister Candace.

An incurable optimist, Phineas constantly looks on the brighter side of things. He is as well extremely smart, creative, and persistent, causing him to build immensely large inventions and activities with the help of his stepbrother. His hospitality often affects his plans.
Ferb Fletcher

Ferb Fletcher

The other titular character. He speaks very little, but is a master of engineering. Alongside his step-brother, he strives to make every day of summer vacation an adventure.

"Ferb" Fletcher is a British Fletcher child currently living in Danville. He is the stepson of Linda Flynn and son of Lawrence Fletcher. He speaks with a British accent. He has a stepsister named Candace, and a stepbrother named Phineas. He is friends with Buford, Baljeet, and Isabella. Also, Ferb has a crush on Vanessa. "Ferb" is short for something which has not yet been mentioned, with the exception of when Ferb was about to say, he got the Pizzazium, and said "Oh, here it is.".

Ferb is the brains behind Phineas' gadgets and contraptions. He builds the stuff that makes summer fun last longer and throws in a few choice words along the way, if he feels like it.

Ferb almost never speaks, but is not actually shy like one would assume. He is very courageous and clever. Quick thinking and on his feet about things, Ferb is a mechanical and technical genius, Ferb has built a plethora of things, from a roller coaster to a rocket to robots.
Candace Flynn

Candace Flynn

Older sister of the titular characters, her main role in the series consists of busting her brothers, though on several occasions she has instead focused on being a normal teenager or even helping her brothers in their Big Ideas. She is madly in love with Jeremy who recently became her boyfriend.

Candace Gertrude Flynn is the 15-year old sister of Phineas and Ferb, the eldest child of the Flynn-Fletcher household. Her day usually consists of attempting to get her brother and stepbrother in trouble with her mother, Linda Flynn, but by the time she arrives to see what they are doing, they always look perfectly innocent and normal. She is usually seen talking on her cell phone to Stacy Hirano, or less often Jenny and acts much like a stereotypical teenager when not trying to stop her brothers' antics. As the quirky older sister, Candace thinks it's her job to keep mom up to date on Phineas & Ferb's antics. Juggling her brothers and teenage life is difficult, but Candace is always finding new ways to make it work.
Perry the Platypus

Perry the Platypus / Agent P

Pet of the titular characters, he is a secret agent under the guise of a mindless animal that foils the schemes of Dr. Doofenshmirtz. Also known as Agent P.

This pet platypus hides a secret life as crime- fighting agent p! Looking simple and innocent is just Perry’s way of keeping his cover as he fights against Dr. Doofenshmirtz.

Perry the Platypus, codenamed Agent P, is Phineas and Ferb's pet platypus, who, unknown to his owners, lives a double life as a secret agent for the O.W.C.A. (The Organization Without a Cool Acronym) (a.k.a. "The Agency"), a government organization of animal spies. In the Agency, his immediate superior is Major Monogram.
Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz

Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz

Nemesis of Perry the Platypus, he often has plans to take over the Tri-State Area.

Always up to evil tricks, Dr. Doofenshmirtz is determined to cause all kinds of mayhem. His wacky schemes and contraptions keep agent p on his toes.

Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz, or Doof for short, is a mad scientist hailing from the country of Druelselstein. He is the head of Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated. He tends not to be evil in the traditional sense, but rather overly dramatic, eccentric and generally clueless. His usual lair is an office building that he apparently owns, though he's worked from other locations when necessary for his plans. He attempts to wreak generally "evil" havoc and assert his rule across "the entire Tri-State Area and the world!" Despite true dedication to this mission nearly all of his plans have been thwarted by his nemesis Perry the Platypus. (Doofenshmirtz has become so used to this foiling that he tends to feel empty or upset on the few occasions where Perry does not stand in his way.) Dr. Doofenshmirtz seems to quite enjoy musical numbers, and has performed songs about "impressing his professor" and how he hates his brother among other subjects. Though his plans are frequently clueless at best and his doctorate was purchased off the internet, some of his inventions (almost always suffixed with "-inator") have been fairly impressive. Online, Doofenshmirtz goes by the name of StrudelCutie4427.
Major Monogram

Major Monogram

Agent P's boss at The Agency.

Major Francis Monogram or, as he likes to be known, simply Major Monogram (due to the fact that people often tease him about his first name) is Agent P's commanding officer, and gives him his mission in each day. Helping him transmit his daily messages and do general things around the Agency is his intern, Carl.
