"This time I know I've created something evil enough to catch your full attention on anger: The Concoction Brew-Inator!"
— Jekyll Doofenshmirtz

Jekyll Doofenshmirtz is Heinz Doofenshmirtz's great-great-grandfather.


Jekyll created a machine that could turn someone into either a fairy princess or a monster. When the angry Mob showed up at his house for their appointment, he drank the concoction the machine produced to show off the invention. However, the dial was turned to fairy princess, thus ruining his chance to be a real evil genius. The mob left, annoyed with the supposed failure of Dr. Jekyll's invention. Realizing the problem, he quickly changed the dial to "monster" and drank the concoction. Now a monster, he ran through the village spreading evil; however, during his reign, he ends up upsetting the platypus monster (A creation of Dr. Phineastein and Ferbgor). Later, at the monster ball Dr. Jekyll is back to normal but ends up meeting the platypus monster again; immediately, the monster begins to beat him up. After asking for a time-out to get a drink, Jekyll once again drinks his invention's brew but ends up turning himself into a fairy princess. The scene changes, but it is heavily implied that the Platypus monster has eaten him when the monster coughs up his fairy wand ("The Monster of Phineas-n-Ferbenstein").
