Western Animation: Phineas and Ferb
aka: Phineasand Ferb
"Mom! Mom! Phineas and Ferb are making a TV Tropes page!"note 

"As you can see, there's a whole lotta stuff to do before school starts this fall!
So stick with us, cause Phineas and Ferb are gonna do it all!"
Bowling for Soup - Theme song

Phineas and Ferb is an animated series which started in 2007. Phineas Flynn and Ferb Fletcher are two open-minded and kind-hearted stepbrothers who live in the town of Danville. Their family consists of their older sister Candace, Linda (Phineas and Candace's mom), Lawrence (Ferb's dad) and Perry the Platypus. Phineas is ridiculously smart and full of energy; Ferb is exactly as smart, although he's a little bit more quiet. Oh, and Perry is a secret agent for an international organization of super spies, but that's neither here nor there.

The brothers find themselves dissatisfied with just spending their summer vacation outside of school, so they pull off unbelievable and often outlandish stunts (i.e. visiting the moon, building a roller coaster, entering a race car competition, rediscovering the dodo bird, giving a monkey a shower, etc.) in order to make summer more exciting. They do a bit of charity whenever they can, and often even manage to make their school's resident bully and his victim work together. But don't worry — the show never gets preachy. It just has really cool songs instead.

Candace hates the fact that her brothers can get away with anything. So Once an Episode, she tries to tell their mom about what the boys have been up to. However, their actions are always covered up just in time, often due to Perry fighting an evil scientist named Dr. Doofenshmirtz, whose inventions have a tendency by sheer coincidence to erase whatever the boys built. This not only causes their mother to question Candace's sanity every time, but also neatly ensures the continuity of the series.

Dan Povenmire had been pitching early versions of this show even before joining the Family Guy crew, where he wrote and directed the first Road To episodes. Its fresh take on summer vacation stories, along with its numerous string of running gags, clever writing, and at least one new musical number per episode has made the show Disney Channel's most successful original animated series of all time. It has hit the 100-episode mark (rare for a Disney animated series) and is currently scheduled to air new episodes through 2015.
