** Irving is sort of a BaseBreakingCharacter in the fandom; some find him annoying, while others identify with him ''because'' he's an AffectionateParody [[LoonyFan of the viewers]].



** Is Candace a JerkAss who deserves all what happens to her for trying to bust her brothers or do we feel sorry about her life where FailureIsTheOnlyOption because she is the [[OnlySaneMan only sane girl]] who realizes that building impossible things in a backyard may end very badly?

* SelfFanservice: Candace Flynn (and sometimes Stacy) gets a lot of fan-art who portrayed good-looking and with curves as Vanessa. Dr. Doofenshmirtz and Perry gets a lot of these, too. To a lesser extent, Phineas, Ferb, and Isabella also get some.

** Phineas and Ferb themselves. Part of the fandom love them, another part find them the weak part of the show because they are (most of the time) two boring StaticCharacter compared to rest of the cast.
** Candace. She has enough fans to be popular, but also some people who see her as TheScrappy. To elaborate, many people hate her for wanting her brothers to get in trouble, even if their project isn't dangerous, blaming them for things that weren't even their fault, and whether or not she's a good friend towards Stacy and Jenny is questionable. Other people don't see anything wrong with Candace busting her brothers since the things they build and the activities they partake in are dangerous and she's just doing it because she fears for their safety and also point out that she can be fun when she wants to be and there are moments when she's actually nice to Phineas and Ferb like a normal sister towards a normal brother. Part of the fandom love her so much that consider Candace (and Doof) the real star of the show.
** Baljeet has his fans for being {{Adorkable}}, however he is seen as TheScrappy to those who view him as a one-joke character and an ethnic stereotype.

** Many lines in the song "Glitchi-Glitchi-Goo" can sound rather... Sexual.
---> "Never gonna stop/Glitchi-Glitchi-Goo means I love you!"
** Doof's line from Phineas and Ferb Interrupted: "...new partner, now if you'll be kind enough to point it to my face and blast me, I'll be the most fascinating and charming person in the Tri-State area! And then maybe we'll go to a movie or something."

** Some think the O.W.C.A. are a [[BigBrotherIsWatching Big Brother]] analog. Doofenshmirtz can't even go to the ''park'' without the agency sending Perry after him! Not to mention they give Perry very few days off or vacations, not even on Christmas.

* BetterOnDVD: Though plenty of entertainment can still be drawn regardless of what order you watch the episodes, watching multiple episodes in a row, especially the earlier ones first, will allow you to understand more of the jokes made in the show, since a huge chunk of its later humor is based on [[LampshadeHanging lampshading]] and [[SubvertedTrope subverting]] the {{Running Gag}}s and making [[BrickJoke Brick Jokes]] and [[ContinuityNod Continuity Nods]] to other episodes. It ''would'' be, if there were more than a dozen episodes (of the over 150 made) available on DVD. Although they ''are'' all available on Netflix, it's only in America. Outside of the US, they can be bought on iTunes.

** The popularity of the "Gitchie-Gitchie-Goo" song in "Flop Starz" led [[ExecutiveMeddling the higher ups to decide]] to make the musical numbers occur OnceAnEpisode. That includes when it really doesn't make any sense to have a musical number whatsoever. The writers do their best of course, but sometimes there's just no way to work a song into the plot of an episode. And yet there's one there anyway.

** All of the Time Shift Weekend episodes [[note]]Tri-Stone Area, Doof Dynasty, Excaliferb, and Phineas and Ferb and the Temple of Juatchadoon[[/note]] as well as Steampunx, The Monster of Phineas and Ferbenstein, and Phineas and Ferb Star Wars all count as this for starring alternate dimensions and/or time periods of Phineas and Ferb. But bonus points go to Tri-Stone Area for having no discernible dialogue, and having stop motion of Dan and Swampy explaining/critiquing the episode.
** Mission Marvel establishes them as being part of one of the Marvelverses. Like any true bizarro episode, this is never mentioned again.

* CrossesTheLineTwice: For an animated program on Disney Channel, this happens with startling regularity— mostly in HarmlessVillain Doofenshmirtz's [[ImagineSpot Imagine Spots]]. An obvious example is the time he planned to found a college of Evilology and, among the projects, the audience was shown the (smoking) skeletal remains of an infant. Another can be found in the episode where he planned to use a space laser (inator) to destroy stuff. Including morning talk show hosts. After (theoretically) using it, the host's arms are still intact, clutching at his mug of coffee. The rest of him is nowhere to be seen.
** From Phineas and Ferb Get Busted. The duo getting squirted with water every time they try to pick up a tool is nothing much. This happening to them while Phineas tries to finish his catchphrase becomes funny. The sergeant doing this '''9''' times before they can do so much as ''breathe'' is hilarious enough for even the most hardened viewers to fall out of their seats laughing.
