"Today is the day we reveal to the Tri-State Area the existence of the League of Villainous Evildoers Maniacally United for Frightening Investments in Naughtiness!"
L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N. (Full name: The League Of Villainous Evildoers Maniacally United For Frightening Investments in Naughtiness) was an organization dedicated to promoting evil. It was presumably founded by Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz. Another organization: O.W.C.A., is dedicated to stopping the evil scientists and their villainous schemes.
Foundation and First Act of Evil
L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N. made its on-screen debut in "Nerdy Dancin'", when its name was established by Doofenshmirtz. In that episode, a handful of them (all known members at the time) had a meeting in which Norm made a large amount of potato salad for a pot luck picnic and press conference.
When they realized that no press was present and they were at the Let's All Dance Until We're Sick filming in Danville, Doofenshmirtz resorted to redirecting them to the studios where the show was being held and take over the dance competition, seeing this as an opportunity to spread terror via television by announcing their existence. However, they failed on account of a combination of two things: their poor dancing skills and decisive intervention by Agent P, with the end result on their part was a disaster, as many of them - including Doofenshmirtz - were badly mauled and ended up in the hospital shortly thereafter, leading Doofenshmirtz to comment from his hospital bed that the show would be more apt if it was renamed Let's All Dance Until We're in Intensive Care.
Inator Creator competition
L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N. hosts a large meeting in which the members showcase their inventions. Rodney won the first annual Inator Creator competition and possesses a glamorous prize belt to prove it.
As the second annual Inator Creator Competition was being held, a number of O.W.C.A. agents, including Perry, were sent in for reconnaissance but were all captured and incarcerated. Dr. Doofenshmirtz was hoping to win the prize belt himself. However, his inator wasn't complete and he struggled to finish it in time for the presentation.
Intending to buy himself time, he activated a fog machine and hampered visibility in the convention, along with the whole of Danville. In the confusion, Rodney managed to activate his own invention, a Fog-Clear-Inator (which turned out to be an gigantic electric fan), which cleared up the room. Doofenshmirtz compensated for this by helping the O.W.C.A. agents escape and releasing them into the convention to destroy the competitors' inventions. At the end of the ensuing fight, the electric fan was the last invention standing.
By that time, Doofenshmirtz rolled his crudely-built invention out onto the convention floor. After setting it by the electric fan, he activated it. A fist with a boxing glove sprung out of it, called by Doofenshmirtz the "Eradicate Rodney's Inator-Inator", promptly smashing the electric fan to pieces, completely destroying it in the process, and forced Rodney to run off crying.
Doofenshmirtz was declared the winner by default. Although Heinz was delighted to win, exclaiming that default was "My favorite way to win", he was dissapointed to find out that the trophy belt was destroyed in the fight. The judge instead handed him a red balloon to substitute for the original prize. Just as Heinz dubbed the prize, "Balloony II", a herd of robotic bulls it drew in stormed into the convention center and decimated the Quanity Inn building. ("Robot Rodeo")
Pageant of Evil
L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N. later televised a competition in the Danville Arena where the winner would become the supreme leader of the organization. Agent P was also at the event, having been brought there by Doofenshmirtz after being captured in a bottle. For the opening, the dancers, including Doofenshmirtz, sang the song Evil Tonight on stage. This song was when many new scientists were introduced (as stated before, only a handful were seen in their first episode). Lawrence Fletcher, who arrived at the arena due to misreading the location of his speech, entered through a trapdoor in the stage and is mistaken as one of the top three contestants. The other two contestants were Dr. Doofenshmirtz and Rodney; Dr. Dimunutive was also a finalist, but was disqualified during the production number due to his height. They compete in various competitions, such as the Mechanical Mother competition and the Swimsuit competition, all of which Lawrence loses due to his politeness and also because he doesn't fully understand what the contest is for.
Backstage, Rodney attempted to use Doofenshmirtz's Make-Everything-Evil-inator, which he renames the Make-Everything-Evil-izer to make himself more evil and thus secure his win. Doofenshmirtz accuses him of stealing his idea and they both fight to be shot with the -inator first. The fight accidentally makes the -inator hit Lawrence, turning him evil and causing him to win the last round of the competition, where the contestants try to intimidate the others with their most evil glare. Lawrence wins by so many points that he is elected Supreme Leader of L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N. Major Monogram advises Perry, through Perry's wrist communicator, to remind Lawrence of who he really is to turn him back to normal. Perry uses his jet pack to escape and turn the dart that Phineas and Ferb are riding on towards the Danville Arena and land in the middle of the arena. Lawrence sees them and he goes back to normal. He tosses aside his Supreme Leader medal, thus resigning as leader. Lawrence, Phineas, and Ferb exit the arena, with Lawrence believing that he had just become the king of the pharmacists. ("Bullseye!")
First Annual Disservice Awards and Attempted Worldwide Domination
At the Knights of Danville Hall, Doofenshmirtz is hosting up the first L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N. Annual Disservice Awards. He is angry to hear that his robot assistant Norm have arranged the event to be taken place in a shared ballroom, but is relieved to find out that he also arranged a covert name ("The Hatfield Wedding") so that no one will find out. As soon as the members are finally in attendance, Doofenshmritz is about to give his introduction, but is rudely interrupted by the loud noise coming from the other side the ballroom. An angry Doofenshmirtz then yells out his introduction to silence the noise down, but this leads him and the villains to find out that the guests in the other side of the ballroom are none other than Major Francis Monogram and the O.W.C.A. agents hosting their O.W.C.A. Cadet Graduation party under a covert name ("Capulet Bat Miztvah"). When this was revealed, both the angry agents and the angry villains get into a nasty fight (despite Monogram's attempts to calm both organizations down), resulting the entire ballroom to be trashed. The fight was started by one scientist's parrot. The fight also ended up in stalemate, as the animal agents got worn out of their energy while the villains end up barely escaping with their lives after enduring the beating. This incident is what led Monogram to be fired from his position, since the security deposit of the ballroom was lost thanks to the fight.
Despite the failure of the Disservice Annual Awards, the members of L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N. later arrange a secret meeting inside an animal shelter warehouse after news reported that the Earth has moved away from the Sun to an early autumn, and City Hall and O.W.C.A. are in a state of panic because of it. Rodney suggested to the villains that it's the perfect time to play dirty and show themselves to the world. In addition to this, Doofenshmirtz confesses that he was the one responsible for successfully moving the Earth and changing the weather with his latest -inator, which shoots out a tractor beam at the planet of Jupiter and uses its mass the pull the Earth away from the Sun. Doofenshmirtz even showed the blueprints of his -inator to prove that he created it, and the villains are very impressed that Doof actually succeeded in a grand evil scheme for once. Upon learning this, Rodney sees this as a great opportunity to take in the role as the new leader of L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N. and enact his lifelong goal: to take over the world. To ensure of this, Rodney orders all of the evil villains of the organization to capture all of the disoriented O.W.C.A. agents and imprison them in the warehouse to keep them out of the way. Though almost all of the animal agents are captured, Perry keeps in his best avoid capture. The members of L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N. also hired five muscular goons to keep on watch for intruders coming to the warehouse.They later took over Danville City Hall (since the change in weather caused so much civil unrest, which forced Doofenshmirtz's brother Mayor Roger to evade from the madness by taking refuge on the top of City Hall's dome). During their press conference at City Hall, Doofenshmirtz and Rodney reveal the truth about the situation to the public. Just as Doofenshmirtz is about to present out the list of all of L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N.'s demands, Rodney cuts him off by taking over, explaining to the people that he himself have used Doof's blueprints of the -inator to create an -inizor ten times the strength and size, capable of moving the Earth away into a new Ice Age if the demands will not be met. As soon as this was spoken, everyone is horrified by this, even Doofenshmirtz start to realize that the whole thing is going out of hand.
This event allowed L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N. to finally get in contact with the world leaders (including U.S. President Barack Obama) in order to know when their demands will be met or not. After a couple of hours, President Obama and the world leaders inform Rodney and the villains (via televised broadcast) that all of L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N.'s demands are finally met except for one: the worldwide supply of pretzels. Taking no notice of this, Rodney activates his -inizor, which starts to move the Earth further away into perpetual winter. The members of L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N. celebrate their newfound success of having the world under their grasp, but Doofenshmirtz is very uncomfortable by this, as he hates worldwide domination in general. After taking a long walk in the snow, Doofenshmirtz decides that he finally has enough of this, seeing that the members of L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N. (mostly Rodney) have gone mad for worldwide domination, and decides to return the Earth back into its proper orbit. However, Rodney, still wanting to rule the Earth, engages into a fight with Doofenshmirtz over the -inizor's controls, intending to move the Earth even further away into a new Ice Age. As the two are fighting, the O.W.C.A. agents are released from their confinement (thanks to a street rat whom Monogram befriend) and they engage into another fight with the villains again. However, this was short-lived when both the agents and villains realized that they're just doing the same brawl they had done back in the ballroom. Seeing that it's not worth it, all the villains decide to flee from the scene (one scientist saying that "we'd better get out of here!", also helped). As such, all of the villains escape from the warehouse, except for Doofenshmirtz and Rodney, who are still fighting over the controls. To ensure that it won't be stopped, Rodney disables both the reverse switch and the self-destruct button, but this provokes an angry Doofenshmirtz to smack Rodney out with a mop. Doofenshirtz later destroys the -inizor by tilting it off the roof (with the help from Perry, Monogram, Carl, and Monty), thus allowing the Earth to be moved back into its original orbit. Afterwards, Rodney is placed under arrest for his crimes against humanity and taken into O.W.C.A. custody. With his work done, Doofenshmirtz leaves peacefully after Monogram thanks him for saving the world. The event also led Monogram to regain his job as co-leader of O.W.C.A..
