!!Regular Trivia:

* Both Marsh and Povenmire wrote for ''WesternAnimation/CatDog'' and ''WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife''. Both shows feature multiple minor characters with the name "Ferb."
* At least three different cast members from ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'' have starred or guest-starred in the series at least once. Richard O'Brien (Riff Raff) plays the father, Lawrence. Barry Bostwick ([[strike:Brad Majors]] [[FanNickname ASSHOLE!]]) plays Phineas's grandfather. And, Creator/TimCurry (Dr. Frank N. Furter) guest-starred as a MadScientist in one episode. However, none of the characters nor their voice actors have interacted with each other as of yet.
** As of "The Last Train to Bustville", Lawrence and Clyde, the grandfather, have had one, very awkward, conversation on camera.
* Also at least 3 ''Series/{{Lexx}}'' guest stars: Barry Bostwick (Thodin), Creator/TimCurry (Poet Man), and Creator/MalcolmMcDowell (Yottskry the Divine Cleric).
* Phineas and Ferb made a guest appearance in an episode of ''Series/ExtremeMakeoverHomeEdition'' in which they build a shrink ray to help Ty Pennington destroy a house. And yes, it is [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome kickass]].
* Unlike most other shows, the cast does not record the scenes in the same room or even at the same time. Vincent Martella (Phineas) claims to have waited 2 years before meeting Thomas Brodie Sangster (Ferb) in person. Part of the reason is that Thomas Brodie Sangster records his dialogue in England while the rest of the main cast is in America.
* Interesting parallel: Vanessa Doofenshmirtz is the non(or slightly less) evil child of a HarmlessVillain, who constantly snarks at his parenting attempts, similar to [[Film/AustinPowers Scott Evil]]. Fittingly, her boyfriend Monty is played by Scott's actor, Creator/SethGreen

!!Trivia Tropes:
* AccidentallyAccurate: That chattering sound Perry makes? Platypi really ''do'' make [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dsd7ZfdZcNU those noises]] in real life (though of course not with their teeth, which they don't have). Interviews have indicated that neither the show's creators nor [[Creator/DeeBradleyBaker Perry's voice actor]] were aware of this during production.
* ActorAllusion: Ferb's PrecociousCrush on Vanessa Doofenshmirtz is a callback to the actors' previous roles in the movie ''Film/LoveActually,'' where Thomas Sangster's character had a similar crush on Olivia Olson's character.
** Candace's voice actress Ashley Tisdale is Photoshopped over Candace for her part in "The Curse of the Princess Monster".
** When Candace competes against Wendy for a job at Mr. Slushy Burger, Wendy is voiced by Brenda Song, who worked with Tisdale on ''Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody''.
*** And, in "Phineas and Ferb Hawaiian Vacation" we have Phil Lewis voicing [[Series/TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody a hotel manager attempting to stop the brothers' antics]].
** "Picture This" introduces Baljeet's uncle Maulik, named after Baljeet's voice actor Maulik Pancholy.
** In "Phineas And Ferb Musical Cliptastic Countdown" the show was hosted by Major Monogram and Dr. Doofenshmirtz, who are both voiced by the creators.
** In "Nerds of A Feather", Doof pitches a show to a man named [[Creator/SethMacFarlane Jeff MacGarland]].
*** Which makes it even more funny to anyone who knows the creators well enough to get the "I got my own show!!" jokes. For those who don't, Doofenshmirtz's voice actor (the show's executive producer) used to work with [=MacFarlane=] on ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''.
** In "Ladies and Gentlemen: Meet Max Modem!", Linda mentions that she only lip-synced "I'm Lindana and I Wanna Have Fun". The person who actually sings that song isn't the same person who voices Linda. (it's Olivia Olson, who voices Vanessa)
** Richard O'Brien, who does the voice of the boys' dad, is best known for his role in ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'' and is very confused when the horror film he's watching has no rock and roll musical numbers.
*** In the same episode, the ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' parody Candace sees casts Creator/MichaelJFox as a [[Film/TeenWolf werewolf]] and Creator/AnnaPaquin [[Series/TrueBlood as the Bella analogue]].
*** In "Meet Max Modem", Lawrence sings a [[ShoutOut science-fiction themed song]]. His outfit is quite reminiscent of [[Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow Riff Raff's.]] He even comments "I feel strangely comfortable in this."
** [[LoonyFan Irving's]] brother is voiced by Diedrich Bader. This isn't the first time [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold he's dealt with a crazy fan]].
** In "Druselsteinoween", Vanessa attends her Halloween party [[WesternAnimation/AdventureTime dressed as a vampire queen.]]
** In "Phineas and Ferb Save Summer", one of the lyrics in Irving's song about why the woods are terrible is [[WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder "banjo-playing hicks]] [[SelfDeprecation shouldn't be trusted".]]
*** The same episode has [[Series/TheTonightShow Jay Leno]] playing yet another character with his giant chin.
* AdoredByTheNetwork: Good gravy! During the time it's been running, it has had the full backing of Disney and there isn't a day that it's not showing on the network.
* AscendedFanon: [[http://thieviusracoonus.deviantart.com/journal/Swampy-Sent-me-Email-305578605#comments Stacy and Ginger are sisters.]]
** Jenny and Django are also confirmed to be siblings.
* AuthorsSavingThrow: At one point in "Night of the Living Pharmacists" Isabella quickly changes into her Fireside Girl uniform by turning her clothes inside out, clearing up all the numerous animation errors where she can be seen wearing the wrong clothes.
* TheCastShowoff:
** Seemingly every post-"Busted" Vanessa sighting has resulted in her character gaining a song, apparently due to Disney realizing voice actress Olivia Olson has an excellent voice. She does the singing for a lot of other female characters as well-- "I'm Lindana and I Wanna Have Fun", for instance, and in "The Monster of Phineas-n-Ferbenstein", she voices the backup singers. AND according to her Wikipedia page, she's also written songs for the show.\\
\\
She also gets songs in several episodes in which Vanessa doesn't physically appear, such as the ChristmasEpisode. (The songs tend to be "no one's actually singing, just accompanying a montage" songs.) In addition, there are episodes where she does appear (e.g.: the ''Star Wars'' crossover) just for the sake of singing songs rather than to advance the plot. It helps of course that her father (Martin Olson) is one of the show's writers and does some of the music for it as well.
** Vincent Martella (Phineas) and Ashley Tisdale (Candace) get their share of time in the musical sun as well, though of course, they ''are'' the main (regularly speaking) characters.
** Let us not forget Alyson Stoner. Interestingly, at first it didn't look like this trope was going to come into effect for Alyson, since initially every song Isabella was involved in either kept her in the background or replaced her voice as a gag (S'Winter). However, as of the Christmas special she's been getting some really nice numbers and even sings the main part on two recent ones, and that's not even counting [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cpDvmkjn5E0 her rendition of "Let it Snow"]] from the Christmas album.
** Carl's Voice actor, Tyler Mann, is a talented singer, but he didn't get to show off his chops until "Where's Perry?" This is lampshaded by Major Nonogram who states "You may have some cleverly hidden singing chops."
* CastingGag:
** A recent episode features Lawrence singing a science-fiction themed song and wearing a costume that's [[ShoutOut quite similar to ]] [[Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow Riff Raff's alien outfit]].
** In one of the Halloween episodes, he's watching a horror movie and asks, "Where's all the rock and roll music?"
* ChannelHop: Sort of. From the second season onward, some new episodes premiere first on Creator/DisneyXD as opposed to Creator/DisneyChannel since the show skews more towards the former's demographic, and are then shown a week or so later on DC branded as "all new".
** Well, sometimes a week or two. Sometimes ''six freakin' months''.
** As of "The Wizard of Odd", new episodes premiere on Creator/DisneyChannel first again, but now they're labeled brand new when they premiere on Creator/DisneyXD. As of the middle of the fourth season, they've begun premiering on Creator/DisneyXD ''again'' and are aired on Disney Channel as part of an "Disney XD on Disney Channel" block.
** Another oblique example of Channel Hop, the series originally premiered on ToonDisney and remained when the network was transformed to XD in 2009.
* CrossDressingVoices: Allergic Candace in "[[Recap/PhineasAndFerbJerkDeSoleil Jerk De Soleil]]" is voiced by Dan Povenmire, one of the show's creators & the voice of [[MadScientist Dr.]] [[HarmlessVillain Doofenshmirtz]]. Also, the singing voices of female characters during a few songs are sometimes done by men.
** UpToEleven in the Japanese dub with the same character, since she's voiced by Taketora, aka ''[[VideoGame/StreetFighterIV Akuma]]''.
* DawsonCasting: The main group of kids have ages 15 or under, according to the creators (with Candace being 15). ''None'' of their voice actors have ages falling into that range, with one of them [Maulik Pancholy] being in his late thirties. Incredibly, he's not even the oldest - the winner of that particular honour is Kelly Hu, who was 39 when she '''began''' voicing Stacy!
** Jeremy and Vanessa were roughly the same age as their voice actors, Mitchel Musso and Olivia Olsen, respectively, during the casting.
* DescendedCreator: Creators Don Povenmire and Jeff "Swampy" Marsh both voice the major characters of the show's recurring B plot; Heinz Doofenshirtz and Major Monogram, respectively.
* DirectToVideo:
** "One Good Scare Ought to Do It!" made its US debut on the DVD ''The Fast and the Phineas'', over two months before its US TV premiere on Creator/DisneyChannel.
** "Unfair Science Fair" and "Unfair Science Fair Redux" (Another Story) made their US debut on the DVD ''The Daze of Summer'', around a week before their US TV premieres on Creator/DisneyXD.
** "The Doof Side of the Moon" made its US debut on the DVD ''A Very Perry Christmas'', three days before its US TV premiere on Creator/DisneyChannel.
** "Doof 101" and "Tales From The Resistance" made their US debut on the "Phineas And Ferb Star Wars" DVD, approximately two weeks before their US TV premiere on Creator/DisneyXD.
* DuelingShows: [[http://www.nytimes.com/2010/06/22/business/media/22ferb.html?ref=business This article]] says that Disney wants it to be the new [[WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants Spongebob]]. While the show has had a lot of success, it still has a long way to go to reach [[CashCowFranchise Spongebob's level]].
** There was a friendly jab to Spongebob in "Summer Belongs to You" with Phineas picking up a sponge and a starfish.
* DVDCommentary: "Attack of the 50 Foot Sister" and "The Chronicles of Meap: More Than Meaps the Eye" each have two: a standard one by Jeff "Swampy" Marsh, Dan Povenmire & Jon Colton Barry, and an in-character one by Dr. Doofenshmirtz & Major Monogram. The former episode's commentaries are on the DVD ''The Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension'', while the latter episode's commentaries are on the DVD ''A Very Perry Christmas: Bonus Disc''.
* ExecutiveMeddling: One of the best positive examples of this tropes. The producers of the show asked to have a musical in every episode. So far, many of them have been ''really'' catchy and memorable.
** Disney also suggested to create characters that would become Isabella and Baljeet, both of which are quite popular.
** One executive suggested that Perry should get a girlfriend, only for the creators to say that he is "married to his job". This was even made fun of in the episode "Nerds of a Feather".
* FakeBrit: Averted with most British characters.
* FandomNod: In "What a Croc" the fan ship of Ferb/Gretchen got a brief nod after three nearly three seasons of extremely minimal interaction between the two characters. Although the nod itself was very brief, featuring both sharing a jetski after showing Phineas and Isabella quite happily doing the same.
* GeniusBonus: In "Troy Story," Buford imagines the Trojan Horse and wonders how the Trojans fit it through the door. Baljeet tells him to just imagine a larger door. In ''Literature/TheAeneid,'' the horse really ''didn't'' fit through the door, forcing the Trojans to disassemble part of the wall.
* IKnewIt: "For Your Ice Only" confirms what many fans had been suspecting for a long time: [[spoiler: Stacy and Ginger are sisters.]]
* {{Jossed}}: A recent NY Times panel had Dan and Jeff finally putting the bed the identity of Phineas' real father...[[NoExceptYes kind of]]. They admitted that it was ''not'' Doof (thus throwing a loop in many a viewer's theory on the real parents).
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The extended version of ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerbChristmasVacation'' hasn't been made available to buy and can only be watched legally on television around Christmas.
* LongRunner: An interesting case due to ScheduleSlip, though the series qualifies as one no matter what at least by typical Disney standards. If going strictly by season count, then ''Phineas and Ferb'' is still the longest-running series in Disney history with four seasons - but stuck in a multi-way tie in such with multiple other animated and live-actions series. When going by the actual length of time elapsed between the premiere of the first and last episodes, it's far and away the longest-running Disney series running through ''eight'' years from 2007 to 2015 and multiple Channel Hops (from Toon Disney to switching variously with Disney XD and Disney Channel).
* MarathonRunning: In June 2015, DisneyXD re-ran all the episodes of the show leading up to the GrandFinale.
* MissingEpisode: "Ready for the Bettys" was pulled from the broadcast rotation in the United States after a band from New York with the same name thought they were copying them, according to [[https://twitter.com/alikigreeky/status/237977819576168448 one of the writers of that episode]]. This caused the episode it was paired with, "The Flying Fishmonger", to be removed as well. The episodes are still available on {{Creator/Netflix}}, iTunes, and Amazon Instant.
** The full episode was aired again on Creator/DisneyChannel on May 22, 2015 at 5:00am, and aired on Disney XD (for the first time) on June 10, during the marathon of every episode they aired in anticipation for the SeriesFinale.
** For whatever reason, the Musical Cliptastic Countdown Hosted by Kelly Osbourne is not available on Netflix.
* NamesTheSame: The fact that Vanessa shares her first name with Vanessa Paradis might be why her boyfriend is named {{Johnny|Depp}}.
** Plus, we're just waiting for Stacy to [[Creator/AyaHirano sing]] "[[LightNovel/HaruhiSuzumiya Hare Hare Yukai]]."
* NonSingingVoice: Played with in "Summer Belongs to You"; when the first song begins, we hear a voice that is obviously not Phineas singing as we pan up a body dressed in Phineas's clothes...and then we find out that it's Clay Aiken, dressed in Phineas's clothes. And then Chaka Khan dressed in Ferb's clothes enters.
** Played straight with Ferb, as Danny Jacobs, Dan Povenmire and Aaron Jacob have done his singing voice.
* OneOfUs: Dan Povenmire and Jeffrey Marsh are very aware of the large community/following that the show has. Marsh is a known contributor to the P&F Wiki, and they have confessed to at least being aware of this very site.
* TheOtherDarrin: Creator/JohnDiMaggio voices Johnny in "Dude, We're Getting The Band Back Together". In "Brain Drain", he's voiced by [[Series/ImInTheBand Logan Miller]].
** In the Russian dub, both Phineas & Ferb had their voice actors replaced twice. Once for the second season, and once again for the third season & onwards. The differences between season 1 Phineas, then seasons 2 & 3 is very obvious.
* PlayingAgainstType: Mrs. Johnson is pretty much the opposite of [[JerkAss the type of character Jane Lynch normally plays]].
** Creator/ClancyBrown as SantaClaus.
** Creator/MalcolmMcDowell (''Film/AClockworkOrange'') as sweet old [[CoolOldGuy Grandpa Fletcher.]]
* RealLifeRelative: Starting in Season 3, Ginger has been voiced by Michaela Zee, the daughter of Ming-Na Wen, who voices Dr. Hirano.
* ScheduleSlip: The show officially has four seasons - which have been stretched across ''eight years'' from 2007 to 2015. Going strictly by season count, it's in a multi-way tie with a number of other animated and live-action shows for longest running Disney series, but going by calendar year run it takes the prize by an almost insurmountable margin.
* ScrewedByTheNetwork: Despite [[AdoredbyTheNetwork the exact opposite]]. Phineas and Ferb are subject to frequent marathons and specials across both of Disney's major channels, and they play a big part in a lot of the channel bumpers and advertising, but during the middle of Season 2 new episodes were subject to some severe ScheduleSlip, to the point where they would air in other countries months before the US premieres, which are about a month apart from each other themselves. The premieres have since been getting more regular since the start of Season 3.
** Disney's adoration of the the show seemed to have run out during the final season, with the season airing and show ending quietly without much promotion like any other show Disney doesn't care about.
*** Actually averted, they re-ran the last few episodes on the regular Disney channel, including the finale.
* ShrugOfGod: The creators, when asked Phineas and Ferb's age; though the original pitch was to make them nine-year olds. this was retracted so that now they're merely "[[VagueAge less than fifteen]]".
** In "Quantum Boogaloo", however, they had to pick an age, so ten was given, as twenty years in the future. Future Linda says that the boys are thirty years old. However, she may have been rounding; WordOfGod was that fans shouldn't necessarily take her literally.
** "Act Your Age" takes place 10 years after the primary setting of the show, and Phineas and Isabella are getting ready to go off to college. This greatly suggests that they are only around 8-10 years old.
* TalkingToHimself: Linda and her mother, Betty Jo, have the same voice actress.
** Isabella and Jenny (one of Candace's friends) are both voiced by Alyson Stoner. She uses a variant of her natural voice for Jenny and pitches up her voice for Isabella.
** In the Russian dub, the titular duo in seasons 2, 3 & onwards have the same voice actor.
* [[NamesTheSame Title's the Same]]: ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipisMagic My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic]]'' and ''WesternAnimation/ThePenguinsOfMadagascar'' have episodes titled "It's About Time"; all three episodes deal with time travel in a sense.
* TooSoon: In-unverse. In "Let's Bounce," as his Lincoln robot betrays Doof, Doof cries out, "He's gonna John Wilkes my Booth!" Then he looks at Perry and say, "what, too soon?"
* TropeNamer: SquirrelsInMyPants
* RecycledScript: "Rollercoaster" and "[[MusicalEpisode Rollercoaster: The Musical]]," [[CaptainObvious obviously]].
** "A Hard Day's Knight" comes across as almost a remake of "Are You My Mummy?" with one stock adventure lit antagonist switched out for another.
* TheWikiRule: [[http://phineasandferb.wikia.com/wiki/Phineas_and_Ferb_Wiki The Phineas and Ferb Wiki]]. [[OneOfUs Jeff "Swampy" Marsh is a regular contributor]].
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The theme song's lyrics were the same but it was originally going to be [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bYiOdw6WZt0 sung in the style of upbeat, chorus-led Disney songs of the past.]] But it was changed to pop rock since the creators decided that modern audiences wouldn't get it.
** Jeremy was originally going to be an [[TheGhost unseen character]], with Candace and others only referring to him in conversation. Likewise, Stacy was going to be just someone Candace spoke to on the phone.
** Planty the Potted Plant was going to get more screentime, but most of his scenes ended up being cut for time.
** Carl was a completely accidental character: one of the writers just started having Major Monogram make aside comments to the guy operating the camera. The other writers loved it and began including Carl in the show proper.
** There was suppose to be a theatrical film of the series, but it fell through and the series was giving the usual MadeForTV one. It's unknown if ''Across the 2nd Dimension'' was to be that movie.
* WordOfGod: [[https://twitter.com/DanPovenmire/status/633114492788838400 "Ferb" is short for "Ferbs"]]
* WordOfSaintPaul: Long before Candace and Jeremy were an established couple, Jeremy's voice actor commented that Jeremy liked Candace back. Of course, it really wasn't all that hard to figure out, but still.
