The program follows Phineas Flynn and his stepbrother Ferb Fletcher, who are between eight and ten years old, on summer vacation. Every day, the boys embark on some grand new project; these are usually unrealistic given the protagonists’ ages (and are sometimes downright physically impossible), which annoys their controlling older sister Candace, who frequently tries to reveal their shenanigans to her and Phineas’ mother, Linda Flynn-Fletcher, and less frequently to Ferb’s father, Lawrence Fletcher. The series follows a standard plot system; running gags occur in every episode, and the subplot almost always features Phineas and Ferb’s pet platypus Perry the Platypus working as a spy (named “Agent P”) for OWCA (the Organization Without a Cool Acronym) to defeat the latest scheme of Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz, a mad scientist driven largely by a need to assert his evilness (although he is not especially evil and has a good heart in some situations). The two plots intersect at the end to erase all traces of the boys’ project just before Candace can show it to their mother. This usually leaves Candace very frustrated.
