If some of you thought that this show was similar to Hey Arnold! like I did, well, Dan Povenmire did work on that show a full decade or so before he co-created this one.

I question whether anyone in this show can really be classified as a Hypercompetent Sidekick. While there are those who take sidekicky roles, and they are indeed very competent, so are their corresponding main characters. Take for example Phineas (he has both Ferb and Isabella listed as these to him on their character pages).

I thought it was supposed to be for situations where the whole thing would fall apart if the sidekick wasn't there (like Shego -> Drakken in Kim Possible). In all of the examples for this show, that is simply not the case.

Awhile ago, I noticed that Ferb, Isabella, Baljeet, and Buford all seem to be in some way based off of Phineas, with Ferb having all the intelligence and creativity but not the ambition, Isabella having all the creativity and ambition but not the intelligence, Baljeet having all the intelligence and ambition but not the creativity, and Buford serving as Phineas's polar opposite.

Is there a trope to put this under, or do I stick it in the Fridge?

I had to hack through the Radar page with a heated machete because it was such a mess. You may contest specific items either here or on the Forums; I've got a thread for this specific page in the Special Efforts subforum and I'll be happy to talk it out with you here, there or by PM (although I prefer to do so where other tropers can see and have input.)

Before you contest something's removal, however, ask the following questions:

  • Is this something that would even run afoul of censorship guidelines?
  • Is there any possible way the censors could have missed this or misunderstood its intent?
  • Am I just gushing about how hot I think Vanessa is?

I think this show should get a Lampshadeing award.

Agree. Its humor is all lampshading or subverting tropes.

Where's the Nightmare Fuel page.

As far as I can tell, there never has been one. There is an entry for it on the YMMV tab.

There actually was one (see the page history); I've edited it myself. It was cutlisted during the site-wide purging of Nightmare Fuel pages. But given that Nightmare Fuel pages have been restored for quite a few works, perhaps it could be reinstated.

Two times in the series, as long as I know, was showd what would happen if they were caught, and one of those times it had dramatic conseguences. I think the second one was made for those people who where sympatethic with Candece. Good thing that in both cases there was a reset button
