Forums: Index > The Backyard > Q&A with Dan, Swampy and others (replywatchpurge)

Since most of us will not have the opportunity to go to a convention like Comic-Con or another event that Dan Povenmire and Jeff "Swampy" Marsh are attending, there are very few opportunities to ask them questions about Phineas and Ferb. Occasionally they have stopped by here and given us some tidbits, which has lead to people asking more questions on their pages.

In order to try and give them some personal space so they can concentrate on making new episodes, we're going to move those questions to this forum. Please do not leave any more questions on their talk pages. Ask them here. Likewise, if you had previously received a response from Dan or Swampy in e-mail, please respect their privacy and do not send them any more questions that way. Ask those questions here instead.

Due to how busy they and the rest of the P&F crew are, we cannot guarantee that either of them will be able to stop by and answer questions. But at least by collecting the questions here, it will give everyone a common place to check to see if maybe they have visited recently.

The other purpose in posting the questions here is that maybe one of the other members of the wiki might already know the answer. Obviously, we won't know all the secrets like what Ferb's full name is, but perhaps we can answer some of the questions on behalf of Dan and Swampy. When doing so, you must provide a source for your answer so that it can be verified that the answer is accurate and was given in an interview or other article. If you are not sure of your facts, provide as much detail for the basis of your answer as you can. Another person might be able to find the correct source based on those details.

As the list of questions grow, the older ones will be moved to archives. If you don't see your question on this page, check the archives first to see if someone already asked it previously.

Please create new sections for each question. Please check the Answered questions page first to see if the question you want to ask has already been addressed.

Keep the Show Going

Do you plan to ever end making new Phineas and Ferb episodes, because I think it's such a great show it should last for years, maybe, you could eventually make the whole show about them as adults (after you do like 4 summers with them as kids), or show them going to school.--Ed

Isabella's outfits

Me and Bob and an anonymous IP user were wondering, in the "Ballad of Badbeard", is Isabella wearing her bow under her hat? and what about in "Got Game?", is she wearing her bow under her horse-head thingy? thanks! by the way, YOUR SHOW TOTALLY RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ~Bowserstar Talk to the new leader of ThunderClan 07:54, February 15, 2010 (UTC)

Who are this fireside girls in the right?


Who are the girls on the far right?

Hello Mr. Marsh. I do not wish to interrupt you in your work of Phineas and Ferb. I just what to know who are two new fireside girls in the far right? They first appeared in I Was a Middle Aged Robot, and later on one of them in The Beak. With the behalf of the members of the Phineas and Ferb Wiki, can you help us identify their names?

Future Soundtracks?

Hi Swampy my name is Kyle. I am a big fan of the show. Especially the songs. My question is will there be a soundtrack for the Phineas and Ferb Summer Belongs To You special just like you did for the Christmas special? Also is there any plans for a Season 2 soundtrack yet? Please reply as soon as possible. Knarrow02 06:55, July 3, 2010 (UTC)

Um, I have the Summer Belongs To You album on my iPod. It was released the day after Summer Belongs To You was. HiBy25 19:50, September 3, 2010 (UTC)


I didn't know you were actually on this wiki. But it's really cool that you are!

Don't worry, I'm not gonna ask you anything about future plots, in fact, I'm totally against spoilers. (Total Drama Island got spoiled for me, and I ain't going back!)

But someone on deviantArt said I should propose an idea for an episode to you. I write fanfiction, see. (and I must admit, I'm mostly canon) There's no better way to get my ideas out there than to ask you, the co-creator! Am I right?

Anyways, the idea comes my friend ( Sorry, I'm big on giving credit. I just wrote a story about it, but the idea is hers.

The idea is: What if Phineas and Ferb's invention goes horribly wrong, and Phineas loses his voice for a period of time?

Tell me what you think, please! I actually want to be a cartoonist one day, mostly inspired by your show!

Season 3 Start date

There has been a unusually large number of season 2 episodes and I'm wondering if you plan on starting a new season soon and I want to know what day.--Bowl108 14:31, August 13, 2010 (UTC)

Dear swampy,
Please send me your e-mail address i would love to tell you som e suggestions for the furture. Phineas1912 00:22, August 14, 2010 (UTC)
I too am curious about Season 3, unless I'm mistaken it has been stated in interviews that Season 3 would feature a rollercoaster musical, a Wizard of Oz parody and an episode in which Candace and Jeremy officially become a couple. Two of the three have already happened. Guess it's not too big of a deal or anything though, honestly I would just rather have more episodes.
Anyway, Phineas1912, I know you mean well but I doubt Swampy would send you his personal email address for suggestions. I mean just imagine how many people want to suggest something to the series his inbox would be too full and some of these suggestions would be really long, people want to convince him to use their ideas. If you have ever read a Phineas and Ferb fanfiction you can easily see how disastrous some fan ideas are. If Dan and Swampy read through all of these they will end up having less time to make the series and some of it will be a pain. EriktheEagle 14:43, August 14, 2010 (UTC)
true im just a big fan of phineas and ferb Phineas1912 16:08, August 14, 2010 (UTC)

As stated above by Swampy, he and Dan (and everyone else involved with the show) cannot accept story ideas.

What happens when Summer ends?

There's 104 days of summer vacation (lucky...) and school comes along just to end it. So what happens to Phineas and Ferb when summer is over? And by "Phineas and Ferb", I mean the show. Is it over? Do we move on to next summer? Do we get a new show along of the lines of "Phineas and Ferb in School"? I sure hope it's not over, despite wanting some closure I would sure miss this series, it's the only reason I watch regular Disney these days and, along with Naruto Shippuden, the only reason I watch Disney XD.

Alas, everything even things that are good, must end but I sure hope Phineas and Ferb last longer. I was feeling really miserable at the end of "Summer Belongs To You" just because it FELT like the last episode. I heard we may get a spin off of Isabella and Fireside Girls which is fine, but seeing how they nearly always with Phineas and Ferb, I doubt it would take place in the same summer. So the question remains: What happens next?EriktheEagle 00:59, August 15, 2010 (UTC)

Hi Major MonogramXD!

Sorry if that subject looked fangirlish but don't worry I'm not going to give you my ideas and show my fancharacters, I may mention my character's name but I know that you won't care, I'm just want to ask two short questions.

1. Is Carl ever going to have a crush (I want to know so I can get over using Carl as my character Bekah's crush.)?

2. What does Carl like to do when he is not an intern for the O.W.C.A. (I sound like such a nerdXD)?

As you can see Carl is my favorite character in Phineas and Ferb (Which is obessive, it's so obessive I think he is hotter than Jeremey XDDDDDD).

Yes, Carl is awesome! But I pair him with VanessaTpffan5196 01:16, December 12, 2010 (UTC)Tpffan5196 (The ultimate Phineas and Ferb fan!)

There is an episode (i forgot the title) where Perry the Platypus and Candace get their brains switched and when Perry goes into his headquarters and Carl sees Candace's body and obviously has an instant crush. ~pheaux 03:15, November 20 2011

Does This Duckbill Make Me Look Fat? is the episode. Hi, Phineas.Whatcha doooooooin'? 21:17, November 20, 2011 (UTC)

Movie is the end?

Would Phineas And Ferb Across The Second Dimension In Fabulous 2D End the show because they are not supposed to know that Perry is a part of The O.C.W.A?IMAWSOME 12:59, August 17, 2010 (UTC)Will,Age 8

I don't know myself but it's only a year away and they haven't even started season 3. You see it might be another "what-if" episode in which someone is dreaming. Or there is the simple possibility than Major Monogram demands that Phineas and Ferb have their memory erased.EriktheEagle 13:40, August 17, 2010 (UTC)
I think that since Perry isn't stopping normal Doofenshmirtz he is going to do something to delete it from their minds. Probably by accident. Pineco7 (Platypuspuspus) 15:44, October 3, 2010 (UTC)

Character Relationships

Good evening Swampy Marsh

First me and my little brother are a huge fan of your show, second I had a few questions about "Character Relationships"

1. Will Phineas and Isabella ever date/kiss?

2. Will Ferb tell Isabella how he feels about her?

3. In the epsiode "Phineas and Ferbs Quantum Boogaloo" (Great name for an episode), we see Candace's kids, Amanda, Xavier and Fred. Candace has fantisiced multiple times about marrying Jeremey and having two kinds, Xavier and Amanda. So if 2 and 2 make four, does this mean Candance will marry Jeremey, as we have now seen they have become boyfriend and girlfriend.

Thanks for reading. Oscar Gilmour 16:29, August 17, 2010 (UTC)

P.S. Can I have your email as I had a cool idea for a sixty minute special? :)

I don't want to sound rude but I HIGHLY doubt he can answer any of those questions, it would be giving away too much.EriktheEagle 22:21, August 17, 2010 (UTC)
Maybe so, but I would like as much info as he could give me Oscar Gilmour 10:50, August 18, 2010 (UTC)
I see...still I don't think he can or will answer any of those except MAYBE his email and #3, but it's still very unlikely.

1) I think Swampy said on this very page that he cannot reveal more about Phineas and Isabella

2) If he can't reveal anything about Phinbella, I don't think he can reveal anything about Ferbella...Ferbella might not even be canon.

3) Again, he isn't supposed (doesn't want) to reveal anything like this. Although he MIGHT cut you some slack because they have gone far enough to make Candace and Jeremy a couple and might never reveal on show whether they get married or not.

Unnamed Tina Fey Episode

What's the real name of this episode? Will Jane Lynch also be in it? You recorded these women on nearly the same time. Leave the answer on my discussion page or move the article to right name. I don't speak English very well, but I think you will understand me ;) Marekos1996 21:04, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

This episode will be "Run Candace Run". — RRabbit42 (leave a message) 06:16, October 12, 2010 (UTC)

Just another bothersome question...

So as I'm you receive these type questions often, I would be very flattered to get a response. I, as so many others, have written episodes that I would love to see make "Phineas and Ferb", but I know that you and Dan cannot accept these as you have said before, "No, I'm afraid we are not allowed to accept or even read any unsolicited script or story ideas at all." So I was just wondering what steps I would need to take in order for you guys to even be able to look at my scripts? Is it even possible? Many others seem to want to become animators like you, but I would much rather become a scriptwriter WITH you (I can dream, can't I?). I feel like you have probably answered questions similar to these, but cannot find it since my questions are slightly different. Thank you very much for your time! You have no idea how much I appreciate the help! 02:13, August 19, 2010 (UTC) joeman613

Wait...wha--? Dan and Swampy can't even READ anything fan made? Is it just ideas they can't read or any type of fanfiction at all?EriktheEagle 02:34, August 19, 2010 (UTC)
I know absolutely nothing about the industry, but I seriously doubt that any unsolicited scripts would be looked over even if you were a union writer (I'm guessing Phineas and Ferb writers are represented by the Animation Guild as opposed to the Writers Guild of America West, since the Animation Guild has a collective bargaining agreement with Disney), in part because of the potential legal issues that would come up over proper compensation combined with the fact that Phineas and Ferb is not "scripted" as most television shows are- rather, its stories are constructed in the fashion old cartoons were, where someone comes up with a basic premise (as Swampy himself told the McClatchy-Tribune News Service, "Some suggested dialogue. Some suggested situations. We never have an actually script [sic] until after the storyboard artist is done") and most of the actual dialogue and gag ideas are thought up during the storyboarding process. As for not being able to read any outside ideas, which would most likely include fan fiction, I would assume that is for legal reasons as well: if the writers were to adapt an idea from a piece of fan fiction, the writer of the fan fiction would most likely try to sue Disney for stealing their idea without credit or compensation (or at least Disney's legal department would fear they would). Mobo85 02:50, August 19, 2010 (UTC)


Will there be a Phinbella episode like how SBTY was Canderemy?

Oh and the Anonymus Poser of you was already revealed as Poptropica411's brother.

CandaceFan 21:21, August 30, 2010 (UTC)

Hey everyone who wants to know about relationship episodes, I feel obliged to tell you that I highly doubt Swampy can answer questions like these as it would give away too much. Also if you want to ask about relationships it may be better to simply say "Isabella's relationship with Phineas" or something along those lines as Swampy is more likely to recognize this than "Phinbella" or "Ferbessa" or "Canderemy". EriktheEagle 22:14, August 30, 2010 (UTC)
Ok. Will there be an episode about Isabella's relationship with Phineas like SBTY was about Candace's relationship with Jeremy? CandaceFan 03:42, August 31, 2010 (UTC)

Episode production codes

Can you confirm the episode production codes for Season 2? If you don't want to give names here are the episodes we know of. PFMuffinStrike455 Talk 02:31, August 31, 2010 (UTC)

more isabella

Hi ther Swampy!

I am an avid Phineas and Ferb fan, and my favorite character of all time is Isabella. If it is not a big deal, could you explainto me her relationship with Phineas and Ferb? In most episodes, it seems that she is their best friend, but in "Lizard Wisperer," Ferb refers to her only as a "girl from across the street." Also, if possible, could you include more of her in the show? She's just so awesome! Thanks, -Cosette

Season 3

I, also wanted to know when Season 3 would start, I just love PaF sooo much, I've seen all 108 episodes, I can;t wait until Split Personality and that other one I forgot the name of air here in the U.S, and Rollercoaster aired on my birthday, which was awesome. I have all three albums on my iPod Touch, as well as the PaF app, which is a lot of fun. I also have two episodes on my iPod. Maybe you could add some more characters to the show as well. I got a few names. Gary, Kevin, Philipp, Bill, Bob, Justin, Dylan, and Devin. That last one is my friend's name, and he loves PaF as well, so it would be cool to tell him that there's a character named after him. Wooooooo! Go Phineas! HiBy25 19:45, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

Phineas' and Ferb's Continuance

Hello Mr. Povenmire and Swampy. My question for you is how long you expect to carry on with P&F as they get older within the seasons, since they can't stay 10 years old forever. You probably won't carry on into their adulthood, unless you're planning another time travel episode. Pammazola 18:25, September 5, 2010 (UTC)

Next episodes

Hey, Swampy and Dan, after Wizard of Odd, when are We Call It Maze, Ladies and Gentlemen, Meet Max Modem!, Split Personality, and Brain Drain gonna air? Oh and The Secret of Success/The Doof Side of the Moon?

Bonus QA: What titles, and please only titles, are coming after those, and when will Season 3 start?

Most of us are very curious, and we hope you won't be givin' away too much info as per allowed. 20:01, September 4, 2010 (UTC) The Klimpaloon!

The people who help producing Phineas and Ferb have no air dates ("I can only confirm production numbers, not air dates. We really don't have a way to check that info.")

Help us, please.

Hello, I am Dr. Whatchamacallit, and I have a question regarding Isabella. Many episodes point to Isabella being at least part Jewish, but we are unsure if this is legit. Please help clear up this question so we can end this confusion. Dr. Whatchamacallit 21:27, September 9, 2010 (UTC)

Isabellas mother is definitly Jewish. She was part of the Mexican-Jewish festival. Isabella also celebrates Haneka. Although you could look deeper into this and question the defintion of "Jewish" and the fact that Isabella seems to also support Christmas and make this all debatable. But looking at it simply (and remember this is Disney, not all that complex), yes Isabella is Jewish.EriktheEagle 22:14, September 9, 2010 (UTC)

I assure you that I would never do such horrible things. I would never give fellow fans false information.

Gosh dude!!!! Best animated show on telivision!!!!!!!!

Hey, I would just like to say that you and Dan Povenmire are super creative and ingenious for creating such a great show. One may take a quick look at it and find it just your simply cartoon with rather interesting animations, but once you sit down and watch an episode, you will think it is the most clever TV show in the world. I LOVE Perry the Platapus and "Doof" (who I impersonate on a regular basis, my favorite line being "Perry the Platapus! You scared the Doonfilsthumphs out of me!") and all of the hilarius backstories surrounded his dark and perverted childhood and how "Drunfelsteinians" live in an almost medieval society. I am fourteen years old, and I believe that Phineas and Ferb is a show with comedy for all ages (my little brothers love it, my 16 year old friend loves it, and I know adults who love it as well.) What I really found histerical was that Candace is my female self (her anxiety level is exactly equal to mine and we both have similar personalities and we both have a thing for ducks because I mean, they are super epic)

I just want to say good job and that you have millions of fans who love what you are doing

TheNegativeKid: Intrigued by the Orgin of P n' F

Hello, Mr. Marsh!

I heard that originally, Phineas and Ferb was in the making for quite sometime. It was almost more than 15 years! So, how did your ideas for the series evolve over time?

From, The Negative Kid; World's Most Infamous 5th Dimension Traveler 22:59, March 7, 2011 (UTC)

A Couple Questions

First off, Phineas and Ferb has got to be the most brilliant, hilarous and unique show in the history of television. You, Dan and the crew are total geniouses. I could go on forever about this, but I have a couple questions to ask that you may or may not be able to answer. So here goes:

  1. Is Ferb's cousin ever going to show up again? I found him quite amusing, I named him Nigel in my Fanfic.
  2. Do the boys' friends (Buford, Baljeet and Isabella) have any siblings?
  3. Is Perry from Phineas's family or Ferb's family?
  4. Is Buford going to get a love interest? He's literally the only recurring character who doesn't have one.
  5. Are you completely finished with Across the Second Dimension? If you're not, how close are you?
  6. Are any other holidays going to be celebrated besides Christmas and Tri-State Area Unification Day?
  7. On a similar note to the above question, has it ever crossed anybody's mind to make an episode that takes place on the Fourth of July? I'm sure the bros could make an awesome firework show.
  8. Finally, is Major Monogram's wife ever going to make an appearance? She's been mentioned several times.

Again, you guys totally rock ;)

Questions by Trolypac

Hey Dan and/or Swampy, I'm User:Trolypac and I love your work, here on "Phineas and Ferb", and also your previous works, I have some questions:

  • Once you said that Carl is teenaged, but teenaged means between 12 and 20, How old is he? and what is he studying?
  • Talking about ages, could you tell me the age of: Dr. D, Francis, Lawrence, Linda, Phineas and Ferb and their friends?
  • In which year takes the series place?
  • There will be another comentary by Doof and Francis?

I would like to suggest ideas:

  • Another Christmas special would be cool
  • perhaps another musical

Ask me when you could, thanks Trolypac 06:48, July 4, 2011 (UTC)

Character Question

Hi Mr. Povenmire and Mr. Marsh.

First off, I just want to say that you've done an amazing job with the series.You and the rest of your team are geniuses in creativity.

There's just one question that has been troubling me ever since Season 1 ended, though:

Will Django ever make a non-cameo return?

Django was an excellent addition to the series, but after Season 1 finished, he only had cameo appearances in Season 2, and so far, he hasn't appeared anywhere in Season 3, not even in Phineas' Birthday Clip-O-Rama.

Do you have any plans in Season 3 for Django? Please reply if you get the chance.

Thank-you, and keep up the good work.

SonicStar23750 18:10, July 5, 2011 (UTC)

Just wanted to say...

Phineas and Ferb is blatantly awesome.

It's about two ingenious stepbrothers who can do ANYTHING, a stereotypical teenage girl and their secret agent pet platypus who battles an evil scientist every day. I mean, anyone that can make that work has got to be a genius.

I was wondering if the Across the Second Dimension Junior Novel corresponds with the upcoming movie. I'm not asking for any spoilers here. I would really appreciate it!

Thanks so much!

Just Curious...

I think every Phineas and Ferb fan secretly wonders...

In the Christmas special, what was Phineas so weirded out by when Ferb gave Phineas the blueprints upside down? I can't seem to figure it out...

It'd be cool if you answered... or not... 03:03, August 21, 2011 (UTC)

A Question on Phineas and Ferb

Dear Mr. Swampy Marsh,

Hello, my name is Danville. I was wondering about Phineas and Ferb's episode number. Is it true that Season 3 will be the last season? I started thinking about that after a press release said that "there will be enough days of summer left for a third season." PLEASE don't let the series end. Just in case, I'll give Mr. Povenmire the same message.



P.S. Will Doof's father be in Across the Second Dimension? I have a theory.

Danville 22:49, May 29, 2011 (UTC)

Another fan-message here! ;)

Hello Mr. Swampy,

First of all: I like your nickname. *small talk* XD Second of all: I guess, you already got alot of comments from fans who admire you and your show and stuff... Well, here is another one. XD

Phineas & Ferb is an awesome show. I adore the humor and the great ideas alot. (Especially the running gags. XD) But in particular, I'm impressed of the creative storys and how the two side-plots (Phineas/Ferb and Perry/Doof) are intertwining in the end of all episodes, in order to spoil the day for Candace. XD That's a complicated concept, but you guys make it so easy to understand. ;) Masterly!

Do you have some tips for a young enthusiastic author, who wants to become professional one day? (You sure noticed, but... I mean me!^^) I would so love, to hear your opinion about my idea for a P&F-Episode, but I have heard, you are not allowed to read it... so I won't trying.^^

BTW: I wonder what the IQ's of Phineas and Ferb are.^^ Could you reveal your guess? I don't know why, but that would be an interesting information somehow.

Greetings from Germany! - Drace 15:49, June 2, 2011 (UTC)

Movie Songs

Can you please put some info on the movie songs' pages? I Walk Away and Takin' Care of Things have no lyrics on them. As the movie comes closer, can you please add the lyrics or the demo versions of these songs to their pages (unless the songs have spoilers in them)? Thanks. P+F Joey 14:10, July 22, 2011 (UTC)


Will Isabella and Phineas Kiss?

If you do not want to answer, please say so. YOU ARE AWESOME!!!

They did in the Across the 2nd Dimension movie, but if you've seen it, you know what happened immediately afterwards. —RRabbit42 (leave a message) 00:32, September 26, 2011 (UTC)


I'm crazy about your show, God has definately given you guys a gift for creativiy. I look forward to seeing upcoming episodes and the movie. And I' love writing, and right now I'm working on a P'n'F story about Vanessa, and I feel He's given me other ideas, for stories, and I would love it if you guys could read my stories, it would just mean so much to me if you did,and liked them. How could I go about doing that? though I do understand if you are busy and can't thanks and God bless you Dan and Swampy. Your show is awesome! Pretty much the only cartoon I watch now. I will be praying that God blesses the show and your crew, and your future careers in Jesus name. He loves you. Again, God bless ApostolicPrincess 11:34, October 13, 2011 (UTC)

I fixed a typo: "defiantly" means something different than "definitely".
Please read the first message at the top of this forum, the "Story ideas" section. As much as they might want to, neither Dan or Swampy can read any story ideas. If you want to send a fan letter (without any story ideas) or fan art, I think you can send that to them in care of Disney. —RRabbit42 (leave a message) 04:53, October 14, 2011 (UTC)
Oh, okay, well thanks, sorry, and God bless you and this wiki in Jesus name ApostolicPrincess 00:13, October 23, 2011 (UTC)


It is a pleasure to meet you Swampy, but I have a small question. Some people were saying going on with some relationship growing with Phineas and Isabella on the episode Meapless in Seattle. I want you to sort out this thing to make it final. Robot Riot11 20:56, October 30, 2011 (UTC)

I was wondering

Hey Swampy, how are you? First I just want to say thanks for answering my first question. Second, my dad thinks that Doof is making up his backstories on the spot, and I think that according to the cartoon, he isn't, so I was wondering if you can help us out with this. Thank you and God bless. Again love your show praying God blesses you and the show so much in Jesus name

Hi Dan and Swampy!

hi sirs how are you guys? I'm a big fan of your show can you come here to the Philippines one day? lol just kidding I know that you guys are busy can I ask you guysb some questions?

1. What will Phineas say after Isabella kissed him cause I'm very curious about that.....

2. Does Linda has a neice from Tianna and Bob cause they got Married on the episode "Candace's Big Day" it'll be cool if they had another cousin visiting.....

3. Is there another Fireside Girls spinoff episode?

Thenk you all so much you guys are one of my Biggest Inspiratins God Bless you all!

Hi, I can help to answer your first question.

If we fans would've heard what Phineas was about to say, then we would obiously know how Phineas feels about Isabella. But a big part of this show is how Isabella is trying to get noticed by Phineas, almost as big part as Candace's "Busting"-part. So, to keep the show going on as normally, it is obvious we won't know what Phineas would have said. Maybe we'll know later, but only Dan and Swampy knows. Also, please sign your post with four tildes (~) or just click the "signature"-button. Amindis 13:51, October 24, 2011 (UTC)

Hello Again

Thank you for answering my questions. I have a couple more if you don't mind

1- There has been rumors about Pinky the Chihuahua's gender. Is Pinky a boy or girl?

2-Why does the talking zebra call Candace "Kevin"?

3-Are there going to be any more episodes featuring Vanessa's friends?

4-Is there a peculiar back-story to Doof and Monogram, like have they know each other prior to OWCA and DEI?

5-Speaking of OWCA, there is some speculation that some of the agents were once human. Is there any truth to that?

Thanks in advance.

A few questions for the boys(and Phineas and Ferb and Candace and Doof)

Hey Dan and Jeff/Swampy,

I would like to say thank you for making this terrific show! In this day and age, we need a cartoon like this, it feels like you've studied people in real-life and transformed them into these characters but making all of them extremely lovable(especially Candace)! I also love the witty writing and smart humour.

Can I ask you something? What is it like to work with Vincent Martella, Thomas Sangster, Ashley Tisdale, and Olivia Olson?! I assume it's nice because they all seem like very nice people, oh and Mitchel Musso too, he definitely adds to Jeremy's voice/charm/laidback-manner! And do you plan any more Christmas specials of the show?!

Oh and Phineas and Ferb, if you're reading this, hey, how are you?!(not to sound like an obsessive fan, x.x, lol!) You thinking of making new inventions yet?! Oh and Candace, I just want to tell you that you are my favourite character, you are definitely the female version of me, we're so alike in many ways, and I just love your passion to bust the boys(I know it's cause you care about them and you're being responsible)! How's things with Jeremy?! Oh and Doof, how's the evil schemes coming along?!


Some requests for the show

Hello Dan and Swampy I want to thank you guys for creating this awesome show it's very fun to watch with my siblings, just a little request for the show is there gonna be another episode where a very popular singer/band is a guest star and will sing in that episode? If there is I'm sure that'll be awesome. Is Candace and Jeremy gonna have another duet 'cause they're really good singers and I love their singing voice.

To Candace if you're reading this I just want to say that you're my favorite character we should hang out sometime.

God Bless All of you! and I hope that your show will be loved by millions of people by the way I really loved the PF2D Movie it's so awesome best DCOM Ever! and Ank-Therb Ou-Yerb

God Bless Again!

Internship/Address Question

Hello! My name is Chelsea, and I am a freshman at Elon University. After several years as a singer and actress, I am now considering a career in cinema or animation as a director. I am planning to take an animation course in the spring, but I would like to take my studies further. Does Phineas and Ferb have an opening for an intern? I don't mind if it's sharpening pencils, fanning computers, or being a gofer. ("Intern, go-fer' Starbucks!") I'd love to just be around, let alone work with, such a creative, innovative, and inspiring team. Alternatively, if this is something that you can't discuss online, may I have the address of the Phineas and Ferb offices so I can mail y'all a letter? Paid or unpaid, West Coast or China, I will do what it takes to make it work if the opportunity is available.

Thank you, and best of luck with the rest of the season! (I love the new Time Skip episodes, the backgrounds for "Doof Dynasty" were absolutely gorgeous!)

Another Phineas/Isabella Kiss

What episode will have Phineas and Isabella kiss again? (both real) --IanPlaystationNerd 01:26, February 17, 2012 (UTC)

Fireside Girls

Hello Mr. Marsh or Mr. Povenmire , I have a few questions about the Fireside Girls.

1 Will the other Fireside Girls last name be revealed?

2 Will you ever officalized the actually hieght of the Fireside Girls?

3 Will you ever state the chain of command of the Fireside Girls Troop 46231?

I know you both are very busy making the show. I honestly thought the commentary that Doofenshmirtz and Monogram made on "Attack of the 50 foot Sister" was pretty funny. You guys rock! Great work on this show and other shows you guys have done past (Wasnt one of you on Nick's Hey Arnold!?) and present! Thank you for stopping by and reading my questions. QuietThornberry26thTeenageRobotGretchen1-2DZ 07:44, February 27, 2012 (UTC)

Hello Dan or Swampy(whom ever is reading this)

I wanted to know if Buford has a precocious crush(tv.troeps I read you go on it, AWESOEM!) on Candace sorry it just the thing he says or does around/about her seem like it.-Joy

Anyone else feel bad for Candice?

I am a nanny and we LOVE watching Phinias and Ferb together! Their shenanigans are fun and, if I could add, impossible for my group to try and replicate! I do have one complaint though: Candice can't catch a break. We dont want her to succeed in busting the boys but we don't think it's fair that SHE does get busted for everything. We watched an episode where she threw a party and got busted even though it was Phinias and Ferb's doing somehow and one where she traded a bunch of stuff for a Ducky MoMo toy at a "swap meet" and Doof ruined it. We were so upset at those endings. Yeah she ruins fun for herself a lot but she obviously feels like the boys ruin her fun quite a bit too (and kids are noticing this).


Sara, Zach, Ella, Andrew, and Grace

Ginger and Stacy Hirano

Do you think there will be any episoes anytime soon that show how Ginger and Stacy treat each other? Also, why did you wait until now to reveal that they were sisters? Please, take your time when answering and thanks for understanding. —09MurphyM (talk) 00:33, November 1, 2012 (UTC)

Are you guys Whovians, New or Old?

I have noticed a lot of "references" on Phineas and Ferb that look like things from another favorite of mine, Doctor Who. For example: episodes "Are You My Mummy?" and "Don't Even Blink",  and Perry's fez in the episode "Temple of Juatchadoon" . Just wondering if these things are intentional, or coincedences.  By the way, this show is the best! You guys are amazing!  Phinfan123 (talk) 08:02, June 24, 2013 (UTC)

Timeline Question

Do you use a timeline to help decide when the episodes would take place chronologically in the show?

Will the show go for a 5th season or as long as spongbob squarepants lasted

Im a big fan of the show and plus. ALL disney channel shows only last up to 4 seasons.

A few questions

Hi Mr. Marsh,

I was wondering...

  1. WIll we ever see Balloony again, or is he gone for good since Norm said he popped?
  1. Is Norm an acronym? The R and the M perhaps standing for Robot Man?
  1. Will we ever learn the story of Jose Doofenshmirtz?
  2. If the Flynn-Fletchers are a blended family, then how did Linda and Lawrence fall in love in the 80s? Could Phineas and Ferb be Parent Trap style brothers biologically? (Sorry if this is confusing)
  3. Is Isabella half Mexican and half Jewish or a Mexican Jew?
  4. Does Major Monogram wear a wig and a fake mustache, as he was seen putting his hair on backwards once and he once tried on different mustaches?

Thank you. I hope Phineas and Ferb never ends.

Unnamed Pop Trio

I posted this on Swampy's talk page before I found this forum, but I felt I should do it properly. Can anyone tell me the name of that Pop Trio that sings "Nemesis", "Perfect Day", and "Evil Buddies and Me"? I feel that referring to them as "Unnamed Pop Trio" isn't that great. Thanks. StefCW (talk) 00:21, October 3, 2013 (UTC)

Isabella's Eyebrows

Hi. I know this is a weird question, but me and several other fans have been wondering if Isabella is supposed to have eyebrows. In Learn to Draw Phineas and Ferb, it says that Isabella doesn't have eyebrows and is sensitive about that fact. However, in practically every episode of Season 4, and several episode before that, Isabella has had eyebrows. Is it safe to assume that Learn to Draw was wrong? Your fan, StefCW (talk) 20:53, June 8, 2014 (UTC)

A little late as I just came across this question while doing some needed pre-spring "cleaning" in this forum, but here's a screenshot I took about Isabella's eyebrows from the aforementioned book:
Isabella no eyebrows note
