Top 10 Best Phineas and Ferb Characters

These stepbrothers made summer vacation absolutely legendary with their big ideas and out-of-this-world inventions. But they weren't the only ones causing a stir in Danville. A secret-agent platypus, a scheming mad scientist, and an incredibly determined older sister... Phineas and Ferb's crew was one-of-a-kind.

So, who stands out for you? Was it Phineas's upbeat optimism or Ferb's quiet genius? Perhaps you always rooted for Candace and her hilarious attempts to bust her brothers. Maybe Agent P's double life stole your heart, or Dr. Doofenshmirtz's goofy "-inators" cracked you up.
The Top Ten
1 Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz is a fictional character and the main antagonist from the animated television show Phineas and Ferb. He was created by Dan Povenmire and Jeff "Swampy" Marsh, and is voiced by Povenmire.

If you think about it, Dr. Doofenshmirtz is what makes the show so special. It could have just been an ordinary show about two young boys who build these crazy contraptions, but it's the Perry/Dr. Doofenshmirtz side plot that really stands out and elevates the show for me. That side plot dynamic only works because of Doofenshmirtz. Also, not to mention, the guy didn't have a great childhood yet still does his best to be a good father figure for Vanessa.

Oh my, where do I start? He is amazing. That's it. That's all. He is just amazing in every way! His dynamic with Perry is awesome and so freakin funny, his voice is really over-the-top yet not obnoxious, and he delivers some of the best jokes in the show. I absolutely adore the dynamic he has with his daughter. He genuinely loves her and cares so much for her. However, sometimes he embarrasses her because of what he does to try and make her happy. Vanessa also loves her dad too, yet she is more reserved about that since she's a teenager with a bunch of cool goth teenage friends.

Doofenshmirtz and Perry have some of the best interactions in the series. No matter how many times Perry gets captured and Doofenshmirtz starts saying a monologue, it's fresh and unique almost every time.

Right now, I can't really choose between Candace, Doofenshmirtz, and Perry for my favorite character, so I think I love them all equally.

2 Perry the Platypus Perry the Platypus, also known as Agent P or simply Perry, is an anthropomorphic platypus from the animated series Phineas and Ferb.

Perry is just amazing. He has no words, yet he is just hilarious. He is such a great character. He loves his household. His interactions with Doofenshmirtz are priceless, and he just has some of the best facial expressions in the show, which is great since he doesn't even talk.

Right now, I can't really choose between Candace, Doofenshmirtz, and Perry for my favorite character, so I think I love them all equally.

Calm, respectful, and protective. He doesn't do much, but with actions. He protects the boys at all costs and is somehow able to understand Doof's crazy attempts to turn revenge on the world, despite knowing he has to stop him because of his maniacs. He and Doof share great character development.

3 Ferb Fletcher Ferbs "Ferb" Fletcher is a British character on the animated television series Phineas and Ferb. The character, voiced by British actor Thomas Sangster, was created by Phineas and Ferb co-founders Dan Povenmire and Jeff "Swampy" Marsh and first appeared in the show's pilot episode, "Rollercoaster."

Ferb and his stepbrother, Phineas Flynn, spend their days during summer vacation from school striving to have fun. They are featured in every episode's A-Plot, constructing large scale inventions or taking part in other outlandish activities. Ferb, an engineering genius, allows Phineas to do most of the talking for the pair and is "more of a man of action." When Ferb does speak, it is almost always a single sentence. In a conversation in the future time of "Phineas and Ferb's Quantum Boogaloo," it is revealed that he was at Camp David, intimating that he might be the current President of the United States, although his British background would probably rule that out. Also, in "Oh, There You Are Perry!", he smiled for the first time.

4 Phineas Flynn Phineas Flynn is one of the protagonists of the animated television series Phineas and Ferb. Voiced by Vincent Martella and created and designed by Dan Povenmire, Phineas first appeared along with the rest of the series' main characters in the pilot episode "Rollercoaster." Phineas, along with his stepbrother... read more

Phineas is the best character in the show. He's funny, smart, makes everyone feel included, not to mention, hot. People say he always never lets Ferb have a say in things, but Ferb has spoken a few times, and he likes to be a man of action. Phineas is an incredible and awesome person, better than Isabella. By awesome person, I mean me.

Phineas is the second-best character in the show, with his optimism, excitement, and smartness. His only bad trait that I know of is that he can't go long without building. So yeah, amazing.

My favourite character is Phineas Flynn because he is smart and can do impossible stuff.

For example:
When he was surfing on the beach he built in his backyard, he almost got bullied by Buford, but it was just a projection of Phineas surfing.

In other examples, he is a very good singer when he performs his song Gitchi Gitchi Goo.

5 Isabella Garcia-Shapiro Isabella Garcia-Shapiro is a major character from the Disney Channel animated series Phineas and Ferb.

I love Isabella! She is such a sweet girl! I love how she names all her things, like her bamboo plant, Bambino! How cute is that? Also, how she is such a great helper with Phineas and Ferb! Also, with the Fireside Girls, she is the leader, so she HAS to have done something good to get nominated! Anyway, she is my favorite character!

Isn't Isabella Garcia-Shapiro just the cutest little girl on this show? She is my favorite Phineas and Ferb character. But I really don't understand why she always wears a different bow on her head with everything she wears. But, the bow does look kinda cute on her. I really like her catchphrase, Whatcha doing? It's catchy. I really like Isabella's personality: cute, sweet, and friendly.

6 Candace Flynn Candace Gertrude Flynn is a main character of the Disney Channel animated television series Phineas and Ferb, voiced by Ashley Tisdale and created and designed by Dan Povenmire.

I love her. She's one of the best characters in the show. First off, she's hysterical. This girl makes me laugh so hard it's unbelievable. Ashley Tisdale does an excellent job with her voice work. She can go from sad to happy to mad to scared all in the same sentence. That's how good she is. Second, she has a wonderful singing voice. Ashley Tisdale sings beautifully and really has a great vocal range. Third, she has a good heart. She comes off as mean and selfish sometimes, but she is really just trying to bust her brothers to prove she's right, not trying to hurt them. She really cares about people and animals! Remember in Perry Lays an Egg when she watched that animal show and she felt bad for that baby turtle? See?! She's really good natured. This is why I love Candace Gertrude Flynn.

7 Vanessa Doofenshmirtz Vanessa Doofenshmirtz is a recurring character in Phineas and Ferb, and the daughter of Heinz and Charlene Doofenshmirtz.

I really liked Vanessa growing up. She was everything I wanted to be (I was going through a goth phase at the time), despite the fact that she is technically a rather minor character. Her relationship with Doofenshmirtz helped characterize him as overprotective in his attempts to give her the perfect childhood that he never had. Meanwhile, she portrayed independence as she fought him every step of the way, yet still loved him.

While rare, I really enjoyed her dynamic with Candace. At first, you think they're polar opposites and would never get along. However, you realize that while they are very different people, in the song "Busted" and in that one two-parter with a bunch of Doofenshmirtz clones taking over the Tri-State Area, they both show strong-headedness and thrive in a crisis. I kinda wish the show had them hang out more.

The one thing I didn't like about Vanessa had nothing to do with Vanessa! It still bothers me to this day that she ended up with Ferb. I didn't have a problem with him having a crush on her (like, who didn't?), and I thought it was cute and good development for Ferb, who tends to hide in the shadow of Phineas. But the fact that they got together in the end is just... weird? The age gap is larger than that of Ferb and Candace because Vanessa is a year older than her. Plus, I always thought she considered him as a friend. However, that really has nothing to do with her as a character and is just annoying shipping stuff.

In summary, she definitely deserves to be in the top five, at the very least, despite how little she appears compared to series regulars like Perry and Phineas.

8 Stacy Hirano Stacy Hirano, often nicknamed Stace by her friends, is a supporting character of Disney’s popular animated TV show Phineas and Ferb.

The reason why I liked her more than Candace is because she often sees the unrealistic creations of the boys but isn't obsessive at all. Candace's behaviour somehow always drives them into trouble, but she's a great friend for Candace to understand her.

She is awesome! She looks beautiful and she is a lovable person.

She is so good at singing! I honestly wish she sang more...

9 Baljeet Tjinder

Baljeet is portrayed in this cartoon as the perfect nerd. Everything he says or does is similar to a nerd's talk. I loved the Baljeetles. His Indian accent adds humor.

Kicked out of summer school because my grades were too high. Funny dude!

Baljeet is quirky and funny sometimes. I love when he sang "Frenemy" with Buford!

10 Major Monogram
The Contenders
11 Buford Van Stomm

GOAT CHARACTER. He's the epitome of humor. Matt Groening wishes he could be this funny. Seriously, compared to Phineas and Ferb, The Simpsons are garbage. Sorry, but it's true. Phineas and Ferb are in a league of their own.

This guy is hilarious. He's a bully on the outside, but he also cares about things like Biff and whalemingos. He has a funny sense of humor and is one of the most developed characters.

Despite having a tough guy demeanor, he's actually really sweet in his own way.

12 Norm

Norm is hilarious. Almost as funny as Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz. His songs Weaponry and A Real Boy were spectacular. He should be in the top 4 or 5.

Even as a robot, Norm has such great character development. He's very loyal to Doof and resembles a lot of Doof's personality.

13 Carl the Intern

Carl and Major Monogram should be higher on the list. They both have the funniest lines!
Example:
MM: What's with the banjo music?
Carl: I just thought since they were going on a quest to add some quest tunes.
MM: Where are they going, Alabama?
*My memory isn't perfect, so half of this is probably wrong.

His title is officially paid intern after season 3. Of course, that's just a title, because he isn't getting paid.

Sure, he's kinda pointless, but remember: He was evil for extra credit.

14 Jeremy Johnson

I like Jeremy because he's friendly, calm, mature, responsible, hard-working, and he never gets hung up on little details. He's a kind and laid-back guy, so polite. I would love to have him as a friend.

He is a good boy who always cares for his family and Candace. He is one of the best characters in Phineas and Ferb.

He's such a nice and chill guy. I would like to be friends with someone like him.

15 Meap

Meap is so cute and adorable. I wish he would move in at the Phineas and Ferb home.

It is cute when he tries to kill Big Mitch and his robots. Put Big Mitch in too!

16 Katie

Gretchen: In the guideline for the beekeeping patch, it says that a good beekeeper tries to think like a bee.
Katie: Bzzz...
Gretchen: What are you doing?
Katie: I'm thinking like a bee.

"I have my semaphore patch! Would that work?" She's a hilarious, lovable cloudcuckoolander.

17 Adyson Sweetwater

As if Fireside Girls get a much more major screentime, I would expect Adyson to be one of the most dominant characters in the group. She's hilarious, has a great personality, and yet, the only downside is that she's accident-prone.

18 Lawrence Fletcher

He's funny, nerdy, and hilariously absent-minded. And he's cool with Phineas and Ferb's adventures.

19 Roger Doofenshmirtz
20 Ducky Momo

Ducky Momo is awesome. He's super cute and makes Candace's obsession that much better.

21 Aloyse von Roddenstein
22 Balloony
23 Planty the Potted Plant
24 Django Brown
25 Linda Flynn-Fletcher

She is always calm, relaxed, and patient, in spite of Candace's constant tattling. She's also hilariously sarcastic.
