    Running Jokes 
  • What, you thought a totally reorganized Funny Moments page would fall out of the sky?
  • Any sentence on this show that begins with "in hindsight" is bound to be hilarious.
  • Everything Norm says.
    Norm: I run on squirrel power!
  • Ferb's one-liners.
  • Basically every scene where Doofenshmirtz realizes it's Perry (who's in a disguise at the time, then takes it off and puts on his fedora) who he's seeing/talking to. Now in compilation form:
    • Whether it be him playing a musical instrument ("Attack Of The 50 Foot Sister") ...
      Doofenshmirtz's Jingle Singers: Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporate—
      Heinz Doofenshmirtz: Oh, what now?
      (Perry staggers in, playing a banjo)

      (Perry puts on his secret agent fedora)
      Heinz Doofenshmirtz: PERRY THE BANJO-PLAYING PLATYPUS?!
    • ...Or him disguised as a worker ("The Lemonade Stand") ...
      Doofenshmirtz: What kind of a plumber are you?

      Doofenshmirtz: A platypus plumber?
      (Perry puts on fedora)
      Doofenshmirtz: Perry the Platypus Plumber?
      (Perry takes off his plumber belt)
      Doofenshmirtz: PERRY THE PLATYPUS??!!
    • ...Or him being in another person's body ("Does This Duckbill Make Me Look Fat?") ...
      (Perry, in Candace's body, busts into Doofenshmirtz's building)
      Doofenshmirtz: A teenage girl?
      (Perry puts on his fedora)
      Doofenshmirtz: PERRY THE TEENAGE GIRL?!
      (he presses a remote, a cage falls on Perry)
      Doofenshmirtz: Sorry about the tight fit, but you know, if I had known you were going to disguise yourself as a teenage girl, I would have set a bigger trap.
    • ...Or him disguising as a thing Doofenshmirtz is supposed to be stealing ("Lawn Gnome Beach Party Of Terror") ...
      Doofenshmirtz: (collecting his stolen lawn gnomes, gets Perry disguised as a lawn gnome next) Oh, this is a strange one.
      (Perry punches Doofenshmirtz)
      Doofenshmirtz: Wait, who are you?
      (Perry takes off his disguise)
      Doofenshmirtz: A platypus?
      (Perry puts on his fedora)
      Doofenshmirtz: PERRY THE PLATYPUS?!
    • ...Or him disguising as someone Doofenshmirtz hired ("Flop Starz") ...
      Dr. Doofenshmirtz: (when Perry comes in wearing Groucho Marx glasses) Oh, are you my new temp? Well, let me just get you up to speed; I know it's a bit of a piece of dirty mess. I'm just putting the finishing touches on my latest maniacal plan. You see, in a few minutes, I will unleash an unprecedented reign of terror upon the entire... (holds up magnifying glass to a map of the world behind him) Tri-State Area, and Perry the Platypus will never be the wiser! (Perry removes glasses) PERRY THE PLATYPUS?! You're a temp? Are times that hard?
    • ...Or Doofenshmirtz accidentally buying him and planning to use him on his schemes (Got Game?) ...
      (After Perry knocks Doofenshmirtz down and takes his Misbehavinator)
      Doofenshmirtz: Hey! What was that all about?
      (Perry takes off his dog disguise and puts on his fedora)
      Doofenshmirtz: Perry the Platypus?!? Uh, ha ha, I...I'm very embarrassed about all that 'coochie-coochie-coo' stuff...
    • ...Or Doofenshmirtz not being able to immediately recognize Perry ("Tree To Get Ready") ...
      Dr. Doofenshmirtz: Pretty good don't you think, Perry the Platypus? (spits out drink) PERRY THE PLATYPUS?! (screaming to pigeons) Get him!!! Stop him!!! He's headed for that clearly-marked exit!!!
    • ...Or Doofenshmirtz realizing that he brought Perry along when he tried to escape from him ("One Good Scare Ought To Do It!") ...
      Dr. Doofenshmirtz: Okay, let's make sure I didn't forget anything in my haste. Let's see, I've got my old basketball, the lamp, the Christmas lights, the umbrella, Perry the Platypus, the Disintivaporator, my golf clubs... PERRY THE PLATYPUS!? [Beat] THE DISINTIVAPORATOR!? [Beat] MY GOLF CLUBS!? I don't even play golf!
    • ...Or him trying to impersonate someone Doofenshmirtz idolized ("A Hard Day's Knight").
      Perry: (mouthing a CD recording) Upon an evil winter's heart, the heavy hand of regret infrequently alights. The malevolent part is one charm without the cumbersome shackles are sentimental intro (the CD begins skipping) spect spect spect spect spect spect spect spect spect spect (Perry whacks the CD player with the book)
      Dr. Doofenshmirtz: Hmm, that's funny. I don't remember you saying "spect" so many times. (Perry explodes out of his disguise) Dr. Wexler, you're a platypus. (Perry puts on his hat) PERRY THE PLATYPUS!?
    • ...Or Doofenshmirtz happening to bump into him and recognizing a resemblance from his disguise ("Vanessessary Roughness").
      • Actually a subversion; he didn't managed to fully recognize Perry since he didn't take off his disguise and put on his fedora.
        Dr. Doofenshmirtz: (crashes into Perry) Hey watch where you're... Say, you look fabulous! But haven't I seen you somewhere before?
        Perry: *chortles*
        Doof: No need to be huffy! You ran into me!
    • ...Or Doofenshmirtz happening to recognize an item which looks just like him ("Hip Hip Parade")...
      (Doofenshmirtz falls on the Perry balloon of the parade)
      Doofenshmirtz: A platypus balloon?
      (balloon hits a sign and the fedora from the sign falls on the balloon's head)
      Doofenshmirtz: A PERRY THE PLATYPUS BALLOON?!
    • Go to the movie page for perhaps the best example ever of Doof not recognizing Perry, even when he's looking right at him.
    • ("Mommy, Can You Hear Me?")
      (Perry is trapped. He shakes off his hat and enters pet mode)
      Perry: (chatters)
      Doofenshmirtz: Aw, poor little regular platypus. Did mean old Perry the Platypus put you in this trap?
      (he frees Perry who immediately attacks him and puts his hat back on)
      Doofenshmirtz: PERRY THE PLATYPUS? I don't know how you got free, or what you did with that other platypus, but it doesn't matter.
    • Or for that matter on All Hallow's Eve ("Druselsteinoween")...
      Doofenshmirtz: And what are you supposed to be? A kid in a sheet?
      (The "kid in the sheet" takes off the sheet to reveal...)
      Doofenshmirtz: A platypus in a sheet?
      (he puts on the fedora)
      Doofenshmirtz: PERRY THE PLATYPUS IN A SHEET?!?!
    • This is also extended to Major Monogram without his moustache in ("Save Summer"), and Monogram has to put his fingers beneath his nose for Doof to recognize him.
      • ...Doofenshmirtz will never be the wiser!!
    • Even eons ago this sort of thing was going on, as proved by "Tri-Stone Area":
      (Bunka crashes through Doofengunk's cave)
      Doofengunk: A bunka-gwunk?
      (Bunka puts his skull cap back on)
      Doofengunk: BUNKA THE BUNKA-GWUNK?!
  • Pretty much any of the Doofenshmirtz jingles, especially the fact that the jingle happens everywhere he happens to be. (Some of the more memorable examples being "Doofenshmirtz holding a bucket" from "Perry Lays an Egg", "Doofenshmirtz Evil is carpeted" from "The Chronicles of Meap", "Doofenshmirtz house in the suburbs" from "Put that Putter Away" and "Doofenshmirtz walks to the diner" from "Ain't No Kiddie Ride").

    • "Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated!"...after hours...
    • "Doofenshmirtz Evil Annex!"
    • "Drusselstein Department of Motor Vehicles and Goat Registration!"
      • "Looking for books at my dad's place!" "Why are you singing that?" "It's just something we do."
    • "Doofenshmirtz Abandoned Theater!"
    • The jingle on an organ. And a doorbell. And on horns.

    • "Doofenshmirtz on a Crab Boat!"
    • "Bunkalunk Bunkalunk Bunkalunka!"

      • Followed by "Bobblehead Perry the Platypus!"
    • "Doofenshmirtiz's Carbon Footprint"
    • “Fully operational Death Star!”
    • And of course.... "Doofenshmirtz in his underwear!"
  • Anytime the giant floating baby head shows up. Moreso since no one ever finds out where it came from.
  • Candace always seeing the talking zebra, especially when hallucinating.
    • "Oh, he always shows he up."
  • All the weird presents Ferb got on Bastille Day.
  • Perry's entrances to his lair have gotten so ridiculous that it's hard not to laugh at them.
  • The many unfortunate birds who encounter Phineas and Ferb's inventions.
    • Taken up to eleven in "Phineas's Birthday Clip-O-Rama," where Candace and Doof's efforts end up knocking an entire flock out of the air one-by-one.
  • Some of the cases of "Oh, There You Are, Perry" are kinda funny.
    • In one episode, Perry returns to Phineas, Ferb and their friends at a campsite and Phineas wonders why Perry is covered in lipstick.
    • Another time, Phineas and Ferb are rubbing platypus hair off of them and ask where Perry is. He comes up a mere second or two later. To boot, all the kids sans Ferb say the line.
  • Doofenshmirtz being mistaken for a pharmacist, something he finds increasingly annoying as the show goes on.

Take Two with Phineas and Ferb
  • From the Regis Philbin episode
    Regis: Do you have a special girl in your life?
    Phineas: Actually I do. (Isabella looks shocked) She's pretty, she's smart, she's the best (Isabella looks like she's gonna cry) She's our mom! (Isabella looks mad)
  • From the Emma Roberts episode, Ferb screams.

Character Commentaries

  • The Commentary on "The Chronicles of Meap" with Doof/Monogram is pure gold. Besides Monogram thinking Meap is Nightmare Fuel (he even outright calls Meap that) and Doof hating Ferb, there's these.
    Candace: (judging different books by their covers) Heavy-handed and derivative.
    Doof: Oh look, she's got your autobiography!
    • Dr. Doofenshmirtz doesn't like Ferb before he flirts with Vanessa. Yes, Dr. Doofenshmirtz instinctively knows Ferb likes Vanessa and hates him for it.
    • And later, when they lose track of the plot:
      Doof: I think that the triangle-head kid is uh... he's planning a bank heist, that's their getaway car.
    • Major Monogram lampshading the Cute Tracker's design:
      "It's a mechanical piece of toast that boy has there..."
    • And then the Major is kind enough to point out what we've all known the entire time:
      Monogram: Watching this cartoon, I think I can safely say that that girl [Candace] is a little unstable.
    • Near the beginning of the episode, there's Doof's confusion over Perry entering his lair with/without the fedora, wondering whether it really was Perry or if it was just a platypus. We're also treated to this exchange when Carl appears on-screen:
      Doofenshmirtz: It's Doctor Coconut!
      Monogram: ... Doctor Coconut?
  • The commentary on "Attack of the 50 Foot Sister" is equally as funny, especially considering they went up to eleven on the whole No Fourth Wall thing.
    Doof: It just amazes me that there's no adult supervision with these kids! I mean, this is a Disney show, right?
    • Monogram commenting on the calendar pages flying up in the Title Sequence ("Oh look at that, they're littering the sun. That's a shame").
    • Watching the scene with the "Baljeet signal":
      Doof: You know what that is? That is a reference to the 1970's movie Star...something. bar?
      Monogram: Are you sure it isn't Klute? I loved the movie Klute.
    • After Candace steals the growth elixir:
      Monogram: I think she just stole that. That girl stole stuff.
      Doof: She's a hoodlum too.
      Monogram: She stole a potion from the boys.
      Doof: The little green-haired boy is a hoodlum and this girl's a hoodlum.
      Monogram: One day, he and your daughter are going to get married.
    • Both lampshading the fact that Doofenshmirtz didn't notice the giant Candace climbing up his building.
    • And finally, this one:
      Doofenshmirtz: (sees Candace's Cheshire Cat Grin) What's that all about? Who does she think she is, Michael Jackson?
  • In Baljeet and Buford's commentary of "No More Bunny Business", Buford thinks that Major Monogram was shrunken down in order to fit in Perry's wrist communicator.
    • Baljeet complaining that he was not invited to hang out with Phineas and Ferb during the events of the episode.
    • Both of them pointing out every unrealistic detail in the episode.
    • When Doofenshmirtz appears in the episode, Buford claims that children will not be interested in a show with adult characters.
  • Doofenshmirtz points out while watching "Flop Starz" that the mall sells "yellow triangles" (the patterns shown on store windows in the show) and that the clothing store is called "Clothing".
    • Doofenshmirtz goes on a rant about how repetition does not make things funny about a show that runs on repetition and by constantly repeating the same sentences and words over and over.
    • Doofenshmirtz saying that the show is "very meta".
    • Doofenshmirtz remembering Jeremy's name as having "germ" in it.
    • Doofenshmirtz scoffs at the idea that anyone could be fooled by Perry's Groucho glasses disguise... then immediately falls for it himself.
    • When Candace's hair gets messed up after punching a purse, Doof mistakes her for Chupacabra.
  • Monogram never realizing that the egg in "Perry Lays an Egg" was not really Perry's.
    • Carl getting so excited about his voice cameo in the episode that he misses it.
    • "CAMEL LAMP!!!"
  • The commentary for "The Ballad of Badbeard" is done by Linda, Candace, Stacy, Doofenshmirtz, Perry, Norm, Monogram, and Carl.
    • Linda being unable to recognize the characters in the episode while they are wearing fake beards.
      • And yet she somehow recognizes the Talking Zebra!
    • Candace reciting the alphabet as a pirate from "R" to "U", and then Buford on screen says, "Me?", to which Candace says, "Yes, you."
Doofenshmirtz's Daily Dirt

Phineas and Ferb Chibi

  • The first one is a remake of the first episode, except for one small detail. Rather then using tinfold to reverse the planet's rotation, Doof instead has a ray that gives anything it hits giant hairy legs with socks.
    • Mom completely ignoring Candace's attempts to get her to see the Rollercoaster, despite Ferb having a giant wagon of material.
    • The fact that Candace actually does use a phone to try and get a picture...only for it to be smashed by Perry and Doof's fighting.
    • The reveal that Perry actually was hit by the ray and only Ferb notices.
  • The second one sees Doofenshmirtz create a Freezinator...because his air conditioning broke down. And then the sun makes it hotter to spite him.
    • When Doof first uses the Freezinator, he...freezes his AC in a block of ice so he can sit on it. Only after the sun melts it does Doof use it to freeze the sun.
    • The fact that the only reason Linda doesn't see the rocket the boys make is because Doof freezes her and a shocked Candace.
    • When Perry uses the rocket to free the sun, it makes a small rasberry noise rather then a giant explosion.
    • Doof's Overly Long Scream when the sun starts chasing him.
  • Finally, the third one sees the boys digging up a T-Rex, which Candace steals a tooth from. Why does this one fail? Because the boys revived it almost as soon as she left and they were off screen when Mom came home.
    • The many trials Candace goes through to show her mom the tooth.
      • Getting bumped into a carwash by another car.
      • Getting trapped in a treadmill.
      • When she seemingly finally corners Linda in the hair salon, she instead pulls back Doof's dryer, causing him to shove her into one.
      • Causing a good amount of food to fall on her at the store because she couldn't get the briefcase where she was keeping the tooth.


  • In the title sequence, when the boys get to fighting a mummy, the mummy visibly backs away.
  • There's this ad which is basically the cast singing about the Dodger Stadium's Code of Conduct. It's pretty standard...until Doof comes in and sings about the rules HE learned the HARD WAY.
    Doofenshmirtz: If you can help it, don't set Third Base on fire with your mind. Releasing monkeys in the dugout, is not considered kind. Don't build devices that will suddenly make it 1889!
  • The Phineas and Ferb Holiday Favorites CD is full of CMOFs:
    • The Twelve Days of Christmas song, where Dr. Doof starts out wishing for "THE ENTIRE TRI-STATE AREA" and finally settles on almond brittle. There's also one point in the song where he decides to sing the original lyrics in a particularly hammy manner ("FIVE GOLDEN RINGS!") just to "be traditional". Also, Candace getting more and more frustrated as her wish ("two busted brothers") repeatedly fails to come true and giving up on the twelfth day.
    • Major Monogram singing his rendition of "Frosty the Snowman" while getting tons of Snark from Carl, or Buford 's rendition of "Good King Wencelas."
  • The extended version of Perry's theme song, a cross between CMOF and CMOA.
    Well, he's lookin' real sharp in his 1940's fedora,
    He's got an iron will
    And nerves of steel
    And several other metal-themed attributes!
    His fur is water-tight
    And he's always up to the fight
    So when evil hears this sound, it quakes in its boots!
    *Perry's chatter*
  • If you don't mind spoilers, it can be rather hilarious to read the summaries for future episodes on the show's wiki. For instance, the description for "That's the Spirit!" (as of 9/21/11) ends with: "Unfortunately, his plan backfires and he transforms into a scary "were-cow" that wreaks havoc any time there is a full moon. It's now up to Agent P to stop him and save Danville." Is it even possible for plain old text to come across as a Deadpan Snarker?
  • Jon Colton Barry noticed Buford, Baljeet, Irving and dad were not in Rollercoaster. this is the result. The best part is the ending where Baljeet swears. Badly
  • This cast interview has many CMOFs, mainly down to the cast just joking around with each other.
    • Vincent Martella's story about meeting Slash definitely qualifies. Who described himself as "starstruck" first? Slash.
    • Vince and Alyson Stoner talking about doing their characters' voices in public areas so that they can get a reaction from kids. Vince also mentions that he recorded his family's home answering machine message in-character as Phineas; apparently, lots of people start their messages with an audio-only Double Take.
      • Dan too, who told a story about doing his Doof voice for a kid at Disney World, which the kid's dad complimented him on, thinking it was just a really good impression.
    • Baljeet's voice actor mentions how the voice came into being; he spent hours on the phone with Dan to get it just right. Then at the very end of the conversation, he was told he'd need to sing in that voice. You Have GOT to Be Kidding Me! doesn't begin to describe it.
    • The girl that mentions the Fridge Logic - Candace's favorite food is grilled cheese sandwich, but she is also allergic to dairy. The cast just burst in laughter. Then Dan saves it by saying it is Soy Cheese though admitting that it is a quick improvisation done at the moment.
  • Even if you completely botch the online game "Bot Thwack" and get a score of 0, the ending screen will still show Doofenshmirtz saying, "Curse you, Perry the Platypus! You thwacked 0 of my bots!"
  • During the premiere of "Mission Marvel" on Disney XD, Doofenshmirtz did commentary on the special in the style of his "Doof's Daily Dirt" videos, criticizing Red Skull's monologue technique among other things.
  • Dan Povenmire posted an outtake where he made Doof say something in gibberish instead of his actual line.
  • During a panel, an audience member asked about a Phineas/Isabella kiss...only he said Phineas/Ferb kiss by mistake. Cue Vincent Martella reacting in disturbed shock in-character as Phineas and remaining that way for a while, even to ask "What do you mean fairly sure?!" when one of the creators says he's fairly sure that Phineas and Ferb will never kiss.
  • Doofenshmirtz sings "Blackbird" by The Beatles with Stitch.note  He doesn't get some of the lyrics.
    Doof: Why would they use broken wings to learn to fly? Why doesn't he say "Take these fully-operational wings" and learn to fly with those? 'Cause it would be much easier.
    Stitch: Maybe they were inexpensive!
    Doof: Maybe that's it, maybe they were too cheap.
    Stitch: They're on sale!
  • At the start of the 2015 Comic-Con panel, all the panelists switched their name tags and were prompted to recite the catchphrase of the character they were given in their own character's voice. This included Perry saying, "Hey, where's Perry?" It has to be heard to be believed.
    • And Isabella yelling "Curse you Perry the Platypus!"
  • For an April Fools day prank, the official YouTube channel released a video of the theme song...sung by Grunkle Stan.
    Grunkle Stan: Mom! Why are Phineas and Ferb's heads shaped like that?
  • Another video from the channel involves Doofenshmirtz trying to make a reservation at a restaurant while Perry fights Norm and a bunch of Doof-clones.

Alternative Title(s): Phineas And Ferb Christmas Vacation, Phineas And Ferb Mission Marvel
