Background Information

Joel Grey and Jennifer Grey

Jennifer Grey and Joel Grey

  • Joel Grey is the father of actress Jennifer Grey. For Phineas and Ferb, she provides the voice of Dr. Gevaarlijk in "Oil on Candace".
  • According to the filmography list at the Internet Movie Database, their roles in "Oil on Candace" mark the first time that father and daughter have worked on a TV series or movie together. Voice actors usually record their lines separate from one another, so it is not known at this time if they were in the recording studio on the same day.
