A man appears in She’s the Mayor who has quite a few lines and seems identical to Mr Garcia-Shapiro in appearance, can we confirm if they are the same character?

since the two never have birthday episodes here are my episode ideas for them
Ferb's birthday bash:the gang take Ferb to England for his birthday meanwhile Perry is helping Dr. Doofenshmirt find his way of becoming professor time.
Baljeet birthday surprise:Buford wanted to make a surprise party for Baljeet so the gang and Dr. Doofenshmirt helps him get ready while Buford keeps him busy.
I can't think of any birthday idea for Buford.
In the episode Primal Perry, Phineas tells Baljeet that "...college is like, nine years away." Keeping in mind that people are typically 18 when they start college, and assuming that Phineas and Baljeet have not skipped or repeated any years of school and that Phineas was completely correct in college being nine years away, that would make both Phineas and Baljeet both 9. And since all 5 main kids are starting college at the same time as seen in Act Your Age, Ferb, Isabella and Buford must also be the same age. But speaking of Act Your Age, it kinda throws a wrench into this theory. If Phineas and Ferb are starting college ten years after the series, that either means all of the main five kids had to repeat exactly one grade, or they're all 8 instead of 9. So which is it?
(I told you I'd do this)
When amazing inventions
get boring in summer
And your creative leaves turn damp
Just one change of setting
Can make it more funner
By going this summer camp
Making a portal
Or eating a blowfish
or climbing up a redwood tree
that doesn't exist
or just asking “hey, where’s Perry”
Winning canoe races
Digging with a mole machine
Or Bungee jumping from a plane
finding a dodo bird
I got stuck on this line
or driving our sister insane
(Candace: oh COME ON!)
As you can see there’s a whole lot of stuff to do
Plus camp actually starts in spring
So stick with us cause
Phineas and Ferb
Are gonna do this thing
So stick with us cause
Phineas and Ferb
Are gonna do this thing!
(Candace: COUNCILLOR! Phineas & Ferb are making a remixed title sequence!)
Basically, i was looking through some archives just in case, and i found this about the last days of the Ferb-ruary event in 2008.
In it, it says that there was a marathon on the last day with every episode that had aired thus far, ending with the premiere of "Journey to the Center of Candace".
Keep in mind that the dates there are accurate to what is listed on this wiki, with the exception of "The Best Lazy Day Ever"/"Crack That Whip", that is listed a day before. (though this could have been a mistake by the part of whoever listed this date here on the wiki)
So what do you all think, was "Mom's Birthday"'s date (and by extension "TBLDE"/"CTW"'s) a mistake here in the wiki, or is it the opposite?
One aspect I really like about Phineas & Ferb that I feel doesn't get brought up enough in discourse regarding this cartoon is how well it subverts/averts numerous tropes and cliches which are commonplace in other cartoons and other forms of entertainment mediums in general. The 2001 movie Shrek gets a lot of positive press for this aspect due to its unconventional presentation and Fiona's subversion of Beauty & the Beast, but Shrek still features a romance that feels rushed and forced rather than natural, and still features a villain without character development or any reason for the audience to care about him as a character other than being a plot device. (I did like Shrek as a kid, but its gimmick of trope subversion/aversion is not executed as well as people make it out to be). Phineas & Ferb is not in your face with it's use of trope subversion/aversion nearly as much as Shrek is, and that's perhaps why this aspect about this cartoon is so underlooked, yet it may have also allowed for this aspect to be executed more naturally in the show instead of feeling forced, which is perhaps why I feel it works so much better in Phineas & Ferb than it does in Shrek.
Here are a few examples;
Buford = Portrays the bully persona without serving as a casual antagonist. Doesn't target the titular characters minus a small handful of cases of unfriendly exchange with Phineas, and a notable one with Ferb that quickly backfired, but instead targets the supporting character Baljeet yet only going as far in a way that bends but doesn't break, and Baljeet's unconventional personality and unpredictable dialogue keeps this act from feeling too cruel or making you despise Buford out of sympathy for Baljeet.
Lawrence = Father character who is cool headed and easy going without falling into the dumb-old-dad cliche. He's an intelligent character with a fervor for history and antiques, and is a responsible husband and father who tries to maintain a good relationship with his wife and children. He does have his fair share of goofs, such as forgetting his wedding anniversary or lack of concern for Phineas and Ferb's projects, but he still stays well away from the bumbling dad mold of the Peter Griffins or Phil Dunphys, as well as away from the toxic strict dad mold of the Red Formans or the dads you see in numerous dramas. It's actually quite refreshing honestly, I think TV needs more dads like Lawrence Fletcher, where they are light-hearted and easy-going and still have their goofs, but are not portrayed as bumbling idiots.
Candace = Bossy big sister, but not really a "mean" big sister in the grand scheme of things. She's verbally brash and antagonistic towards her brothers, and she does try to rain on their parade in her attempts to get the boys in trouble with her mother, but compare her to the Darlene Conners, Shelly Marshs, and Lori Louds of the TV world, and you get a pretty large contrast. Candace is very gentle with her brothers and doesn't go out of her way to physically hurt or harm them, her antagonistic behavior is all bark and no bite. Not to mention that the boys are completely oblivious to her intentions and any sense of mutual sibling rivalry is absent, and her attempts to get the boys in trouble always backfires and puts bad juju on her instead. This allows Candace to still reflect this bossy big sister persona without becoming an unlikable abusive character or warranting sympathy for Phineas or Ferb as they don't suffer from her actions, and its actually a pretty cute concept, and is executed perfectly as well.
Doofenschmirtz = A bad guy but not a villain. This concept is honestly not that original in the scheme of things regarding cartoons, as Plankton from SpongeBob SquarePants is kind of similar in this regard. However, the final episode as well as Doofenschmirtz turning good in the end is what really sets him apart. Not that he turned good, but that he was never a bad guy to begin with, he just had a childish knack for being a bad guy without having the spirit for it. He also doesn't interact with the titular characters canonically throughout the series, nor are his schemes really threatening, not to mention his goal of control is not of the world, but instead the New York Metro, aka, the Tri State Area, which is a very creative concept. The slapstick between him and Perry is very akin to that of Tom & Jerry, albeit with modern animation, and there are numerous instances where he shares friendly ground with his arch-nemesis and is helped out by him. Plus, he tries to be a good father with his daughter Vanessa, and he undergoes numerous instances of character development, especially in the final episode, and all of this makes him a likeable character, and it really makes you forget he's supposed to be the "bad guy", he's definitely more of a villain parody than an actual antagonist, and it's brilliant to see, it doesn't take a demeaning approach that other cartoons and especially movies take where they just go out of their way to demonize the character just to make them fit the bad guy mold.
Voice Acting - This is more of a "me thing", but watching a few other cartoons I grew up with feels kind of painful as an adult, because the titular boy character is always made to sound like a child, either by a woman imitating a prepubescent male voice, or by a prepubescent child themselves. I understand why they do this, because they're trying to gear towards kids and feel more relatable to kids, but it makes these shows hard to go back to as an adult, and it makes you feel really childish watching it. Sure, Phineas's voice was way higher in earlier episodes, but even then it was still deeper than most others as the voice actor was already a teenager by then, and the higher pitch is only heard in the first few episodes, and after that you hear the more mature yet goofy voice he's more known for, and it allows for this character to stay relatable into adulthood and not make you feel childish in doing so, same thing with Ferb, Buford, and Baljeet, plus Isabella as a female example, and that takes me to my last point;
Lack of School - The summer setting of this show means that school locales are absent, and therefore school drama tropes that many cartoons focus on are also absent as well. Not only this, but the characters aren't spending their summers as typical children do, given all their inventions and projects and what not. This, combined with my previous point of the mature voice acting, makes it very easy to forget that these characters are supposed to be children, they feel very "anthropomorphic", like they're adult characters in the mold of child characters. It's kind of similar to South Park in a way, but that show is an adult cartoon, so its something to expect, whereas Phineas & Ferb airs on a children's TV channel and thereby you'd expect it to feel more childish, but as an adult, especially as an adult who unfortunately never watched this cartoon during its prime (was a Nickelodeon/Boomerang kid when it first aired and was entering my senior year of high school when it ended), watching it for the first time without any nostalgic bias to go off of, I was easily able to get into this show, find the characters relatable, get a few laughs, and not feel childish in doing so, I almost get a similar impression as to when I'd watch South Park or Futurama. Phineas still has a few childish moments, but they feel more like a cute contrast to his usual personality that reflects that Phineas is still a kid, despite how anthropomorphic he may seem at times.
What do you think?
I can see the things you're doin' and you think that I'm naïve
It's summer, it can't be more fitting than this.
Hot dogs, cotton candy
I have been looking for a while and I can’t find it so I’m wondering if it even is on Disney +
I think i already ask this
I’ve been saying this for a while because Phineas and Ferb had Mission Marvel when Disney bought Marvel Studios, the Star Wars episode when Disney bought Lucasfilm, and they even had Miss Piggy in an episode of Take Two because Disney owns The Muppets. So when Disney bought Fox I always thought it would make sense to do a crossover between Disney’s biggest cartoon (P&F) and Fox’s biggest cartoon (The Simpsons). Especially now that The Simpsons is already doing crossovers with other Disney properties. They did a crossover with Star Wars in a short called “Maggie Simpson in: The Force Awakens from its Nap” and now they’re doing a crossover with Marvel in a short called “The Good, The Bart, and The Loki”. I feel like the logical next step is to just have The Simpsons do a crossover with Phineas and Ferb. It doesn’t even need to be a 44 minute long episode like P&F’s other crossover episodes, it could be a 5 minute long short like these other Simpsons crossovers are. Or it could be anywhere in between, it could be an 11 minute episode, a 22 minute episode, or possibly even a 33 minute special.
I have question!
Is Memes Allowed?

Houston, we've got a situation!
@AdysonnS Isn't any 45 minute episode considered special? So isn't Christmas Vacation a special episode? That's the classification that was given by Povenmire, and it's even used in this wiki under Category:Special episodes, so why is there even debate over this?
He himself said: "It's a really sweet, warm special that we're really proud to have our name on"
