    Norm The Giant Robot Man 


He's not quite the next Stormtrooper.
"We're all very impressed with your numbers, sir!"
Voiced by: John Viener, Joel McHale (prototype head)

A slightly scatterbrained android build by Dr. Doofenshmirtz to destroy Perry the Platypus in the episode "Greece Lightning", based on the Doctor misinterpreting an old film strip about how "the greatest enemy of the platypus is man". Norm eventually started showing up in later episodes helping out Doofenshmirtz with the occasional evil scheme. He has some of the personality attributes of an eerily-cheerful office-worker from The Fifties, with an occasional sarcastic streak.
  • Affably Evil
  • Anti-Villain
  • Beware the Silly Ones: In "Norm Unleashed".
  • Captain Obvious: "I'm drilling!"
  • Characterization Marches On: From one-off scheme of Doofenshmirtz's, to occasional Servile Snarker, to a full-blown character with motivations, his own episode, and his own song.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Especially in earlier appearances, when he could only speak in cliche sitcom phrases, but has been toned down somewhat since his character grew out of that tendency.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Retrofits himself with a massive arsenal of weapons in "Norm Unleashed", all of which are exactly what he needs to counter Perry's usual attempts to stop him.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He took down a much larger and more advanced robot with a cup of coffee once to save Doofenshmirtz.
    • And in "Norm Unleashed", he needs to take over Doofenshmirtz's role in conquering the Tri-State Area and does so in spectacular fashion.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "A Real Boy", "Love at First Byte", and "Norm Unleashed". "Phineas and Ferb-busters!" also focuses on him more than usual.
  • Deadpan Snarker: His prototype head.
  • Do-Anything Robot: Even Doofenshmirtz is not aware of his full functionality. And on top of that he can be retrofitted with new parts quite easily.
  • The Dragon/Giant Mook
  • Graceful Loser: "Ah, I see what you're going for. Well played, sir."
  • The Igor: In a few episodes.
  • Killer Robot
  • Mad Love: Norm has this for Doofenshmirtz in a "Well Done, Son!" Guy sort of way. Doof has no parental affection for him, but it doesn't stop Norm from trying.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: He does a very impressive job on the one occasion where he had to take over from Doofenshmirtz in trying to conquer the Tri-State Area.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Sometimes, like in "Phineas and Ferb-busters!"
  • Running Gag: Norm demonstrating an ability or attribute of his that happens to be just what Doofenshmirtz needs, and Doof remarking that he really needs to read Norm's instruction manual. Has only been used twice thus far, though.
  • Sarcasm-Blind
  • Servile Snarker: Rarely, but that just makes it funnier.
    • By contrast, his prototype head was nothing but a snarker.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With Chloe.
  • Stepford Smiler: Doesn't really show much expression sans that smile no matter what he's feeling (though his smile does flip into a frown on rare occasions, especially in later episodes). Justified, as he's a robot who can't show expressions.
    (big smile) "Now I know I have a heart—-because it's breaking!" (Single Tear)
    • Taken even further in "A Real Boy", when he's shown to have several backup heads meant to show different emotions... and they all have exactly the same expression as his normal head.
    • "Secretly I'm very lonely!"
    • "Space is cold and unforgiving. Just like my father."
    • "Why must I be alone?"
  • Sudden Anatomy: Grows a platypus-sized control station in his torso in "A Traffic Cam Caper", when Perry needs to use him as Powered Armor. Later, this spot is occupied by a squirrel on an exercise wheel, which, based on "A Real Boy", seems to have become a permanent attribute.
  • Sycophantic Servant
  • Took a Level in Badass: He nearly beats Perry in "Norm Unleashed".
  • Transforming Mecha: "Undercover Carl" shows that he can transform into a flatbed truck (though a special license is apparently needed to drive him in this form).
  • Villain Song: "Weaponry".
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: In his Villain Song he even calls Dr. Doofenshmirtz "father"

    Talking Zebra 

Talking Zebra

Voiced by: Jeff Bennett

A mysterious talking zebra who tends to show up whenever Candace is hallucinating or dreaming. He seems to think Candace's name is "Kevin".



Voiced by: Lorenzo Lamas, Jeff Foxworthy (while using the Southern translator mustache), Jeff "Swampy" Marsh (while using the British translator mustache)

A small, adorable alien who initially crash landed in Phineas and Ferb's yard and was nicknamed "Meap" based on his curious vocalizations. In spite of his appearance he is strong enough to defeat opponents many times his size and turns out to be an intergalactic security agent in charge of stopping Mitch. It has been shown that he belongs to a species whose language is composed solely of the word "Meap" and can shoot destructive rainbow-colored beams from their mouth.



Voiced by: David Mitchell

An evil alien poacher who cruises the galaxies looking for rare specimens and occasionally tries to take over his home planet. He turns out to be a member of Meap's species inside a mobile suit.

    Pinky the Chihuahua 

Pinky the Chihuahua

Voiced by: Dee Bradley Baker

Isabella's pet chihuahua, later revealed to be an O.W.C.A. secret agent. He works in a different division from Perry the Platypus, under Admiral Acronym, and is the nemesis of Professor Poofenplotz.

    Peter the Panda 

Peter the Panda

A secret agent panda from Seattle who temporarily replaced Perry as Doofenshmirtz's nemesis. It was later revealed that this replacement was actually part of Doofenshmirtz's plan to defeat the O.W.C.A., upon which Peter and Perry worked together to foil the scheme. Peter has since shown up to assist Perry on several other missions.



A balloon that Doofenshmirtz obtained as a child. He painted a face on it and considered it his friend, but one day it drifted away. Doofenshmirtz would learn as an adult that Balloony had floated into outer space and been captured by the alien poacher Mitch, but was disappointed when the balloon "refused" to follow him any longer. Later, Balloony became The Dragon to Mitch, until he met up with Doofenshmirtz once again under life-threatening circumstances and performed a Heel-Face Turn to rescue his former companion.
