Phineas and Ferb Wiki

Love Händel (pronounced "Love Handle") was a 1980s American rock band. According to a "Behind the Music"-style documentary, they broke up due to infighting and an ever-dwindling fan base. Bobbi became a hair stylist, Swampy got a job at a public library, and Danny is still playing and has a store named Danny's Music Shop. Years after the breakup, they reunite for "one night only", thanks to Phineas and Ferb ("Dude, We're Getting the Band Back Together"). Despite this, they have been seen as a band at various other points, including in a parade and in a giant jukebox ("Hip Hip Parade", "Make Play"). They have also been seen in a tour bus, implying that they may have reunited and gone back on tour (Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension).

Background Information

  • Lawrence bought tickets for himself and Linda to attend the farewell concert of Love Händel, her favorite band. After they were featured in the "flaming hot spotlight of love", Lawrence felt brave enough hold her hand, which he had never done before. Danny yelled over to him to kiss her. Linda obliged and kissed him passionately; the two were later married. ("Dude, We're Getting the Band Back Together")
  • Bobbi and Sherman have seen the documentary about their band. During an argument, Bobbi stated that it was "slovenly behavior that ruined Love Händel", while Sherman quoted the "infighting due to pressure from a dwindling fan base" statement from the documentary.
  • In "Thaddeus and Thor", Love Händel helped Doofenshmirtz sing a song about why he couldn't play kickball.

  • In 1993 in Albuquerque, though unknown exactly what happened, it was either about robots and/or their bus being knocked over because Danny said "Great. Albuquerque '93 all over again." (Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension)
