Phineas: "What do you think the scariest thing was, Ferb?"
Ferb: "Definitely the giant floating baby head."
Phineas: "Yeah.....yeah, where did that come from?"
-Phineas and Ferb on the baby head.[source]

The inexplicable Giant Floating Baby Head is a mysterious being that appears very randomly. While they tend to appear in some of Phineas and Ferb's or Dr. Doofenshmirtz's Big Ideas, they are clueless as to where they comes from.

Victorian times

In Victorian times, an identical baby head entered the Best Monster Contest. It is not known if the baby head has been around for hundreds of years, or that was just a lookalike ("The Monster of Phineas-n-Ferbenstein").

Present life

The giant floating baby head first showed up when Phineas and Ferb tried to help Isabella get rid of her hiccups by building a haunted house in the backyard. After Candace went through the haunted house to find her brothers, she complained about how outrageous the house was and asked why the giant floating baby head was even there. The baby head cried after Candace told him/her to be quiet. They were also in the haunted house's elevator when Candace was going to use it and was abruptly told to leave the elevator. At the end of the day, Phineas and Ferb relaxed in the tree and thought about what the scariest thing they did was, and Ferb stated that it was the Giant Floating Baby Head. They both suddenly wonder where it came from anyway ("One Good Scare Ought to Do It!").

The baby head showed up again as one of the supplies being delivered to the Flynn-Fletcher house when Phineas and Ferb build the monster truck arena in their backyard to help Candace learn how to parallel park although it was not in the arena or in/on the monster truck. ("It's a Mud, Mud, Mud, Mud World").

They reappeared on a handcart behind the boys and Candace when they built the PF 5000 Animatron. The baby head was shown being lifted upwards ("Out of Toon").

The baby head was also one of Chez Platypus's customers and was allowed by Buford into the restaurant ahead of Candace and Jeremy ("Chez Platypus").

They were also behind Candace's window as Candace was talking to Stacy about her text message to Jeremy. The baby was being carried by a lever for unknown purposes ("At the Car Wash").

The giant baby head's message on Doofenshmirtz's cast.

They visited Heinz Doofenshmirtz when his foot was broken, and somehow managed to sign his cast. They were accompanied by Dr. Bloodpudding at the time ("The Bully Code").

They were among the various people in Phineas and Ferb building. Before the building's completion, Phineas mentioned putting something next to a giant gorilla head, which is most likely a reference to this ("The Doof Side of the Moon").

They are briefly seen in "Funhouse", in the line "The bathtub is your bed and a floating baby head" ("Misperceived Monotreme").

The baby head was also seen during the song "Carpe Diem" ("Rollercoaster: The Musical!").

Numerous giant floating baby heads of various sizes appeared in the 4th Dimension during "Brand New Reality". (Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension)

Then, the baby head, appeared as an implement for constructing the tower. ("Escape from Phineas Tower")
