My Opinions on Phineas and Candace's Biological Father


ATTENTION: FURTHER EDITS ARE IN THIS BLOG ENTRY.
Phineas reading his (biological) father's diary.


Apparently the post about the possibilities of who Phineas and Candace's biological father is gets many views by Phineas and Ferb fans. Sorry for the bad grammar there. I hope I'm better at it now.

Anyway, that post was based on other opinions. This post is based on my opinions. In my opinion their biological father is Perry the Platypus. The theory was first mentioned in the Internet by Bobtherandomguy from PnF Wiki. I know, it's weird, but I just think it's the best theory of their biological father yet.

I'm not just gonna talk about how Perry the Platypus lost his fatherhood. I'm gonna tell my theory on how their father (any kind of person, not just Perry or Doofenshmirtz) disappeared and what kind of problems he had with Linda. I will also going to tell you about his history. I'm still using Perry the Platypus as the "father" in this theory.

Here it goes.

During high school, Perry (it's most likely not his real name, but let's just call him "Perry", OK?) is an inventor/geek? and master guitar player, being part of a band. Eventually Linda got impressed by Perry's awesome guitar playing and wanted to learn how to play the guitar from him. Perry agreed. As he teaches Linda how to play the guitar, they eventually love each other, agreed to date and even marry.

They both became big stars, being famous and all. But a few years later they gave up on their star careers and settled for a simple family life. Except that... Perry is too busy with his job. He wasn't even there when Linda gave birth to Candace. (makes me think that Linda would most likely as "Hey, where's Perry?" LOL) Perry does take care of Candace (but rarely), and he really wants to, but he feels that his job is a must, and frequently leaves his family for his job... as a secret agent. Candace became lonely, not only because her father's very busy but her mother has her business too. Because of that she would usually play with an imaginary Zebra and Ducky Momo. (I think.) There's also a possibility that Perry wanted Candace to be a boy and occasionally called her "Kevin".

One day, Perry received an announcement from the boss (maybe Major Monogram, but probably not) that in order to disguise better, the agents must transform into animals. Perry had to think for a while, he's not sure if he's ready to turn into an animal. Then at home, he suddenly had a fight with Linda while she was being pregnant with Phineas. She scolded him badly about his absence for the family. It surely doesn't help that she's having mood swings during the moment.

Then came the tearjerker. Perry came close to Candace to say good-bye, wrote a "suicidal note" saying that he's sorry that he can't take care of the family because he's too busy for work, and left to change into... a platypus.

Well, the father doesn't have to be Perry. He could be replaced with some other guy who cares about work more than his family, and left them without trace, thus being "dead in absentia". The "preferring work over family" part is mostly inspired by Swampy Marsh's joke about Perry being married with his job. Seriously, it helped so much. Thank you!

OK, move on! After Linda found out, she went quiet. There's no sign of being sad or happy or angry. She just went to bed. The next days she tried to find a new love. That's when she found Lawrence. Apparently Lawrence has a scholarship to study in the US and brought Ferb (whom I think got pregnant with Ferb because of alien abduction, but he always keeps it a secret - even Linda doesn't know). They fell in love and got married. Somehow.

Oh yeah! Perry who was transformed into a platypus was soon Linda's pet a few months before Phineas was born. Perry's memory got a bit mixed up, and he kinda forgot his fatherly days, which is probably why he doesn't have any romantic affection with Linda. She got Lawrence anyway. When Perry was still human he regretted that he can't take care of his kids, especially Candace, so when he's a platypus, he has a sudden affection towards Candace, despite that they have a love-hate relationship.


My depiction of their dad holding Candace as a toddler.

EDIT: I'm gonna add some more because I have realized that Phineas had an experience with baby Perry. You know, in that episode where Perry had to be resigned to another enemy because Dr. Doofenshmirtz isn't much of a threat? Well, here's the addition.

Apparently before Perry became a platypus, his nemesis wasn't Dr. Doofenshmirtz. He goes against any enemy all over the world, like James Bond. He's also the best agent in his agency (and probably the only competent one). When he was in the agency, he also makes his own gadgets which he uses when he fights against evil. Because of this, he only appeared at home for once a year. The first time of the year is when Perry made Linda got pregnant with Phineas. A few months later, he came back, but was scolded by Linda.

Perry was pretty much banished from the house forever. Then the agency wanted Perry to be reborn as an animal to disguise better with a machine. With the machine, Perry became a platypus, but a mindless platypus. The agency got disbanded because they have destroyed their best agent and was replaced by the O.W.C.A. The organization thought that the platypus had some potential, so they figured out a method to make the platypus act like a human with multiple abilities. Then they figured out that they could also do it with other animals, and set them with their own nemesis, so they wouldn't have one agent trying to defeat many enemies.

EDIT #2: Editing again! Linda, Phineas, and Candace's last names were Flynn. Some would assume that their father's last name is Flynn, too. But since Linda's parents' last names were also Flynn, the father's last name would obviously be something else. And then, someone said that Linda and the father might have not been married yet. I think it's possible in the US to have kids despite not getting married yet, so maybe they haven't married yet and never divorced (in this theory the father "died", not "divorced").

EDIT #3: Some people were wondering if Phineas and Candace even have the same dad. Well, I think they have the same dad, since Candace's head is pointy like Phineas, though it may just be her hair. Though it's also possible that Linda was a *ehem* prostitute with men and had Phineas and Candace. And for those who thinks that Heinz Doofenshmritz is one of them, no. I do not think that Dr. Doofenshmirtz is the father of any of them. I've been convinced by the Doofenshmirtz Family Reunion and the episode What Do It Do? where Heinz had a (possibly blind) date with Linda and had never meet again until this day.

Yup, that's my theory. It's probably gonna be jossed by Dan and Swampy anyway. *whimper*

Candace and Perry

Perry the Platypus and Candace Flynn are my favorite Phineas and Ferb characters. And no, I'm not gonna pair them up just because they're my top 2. It's just a coincidence. I do like their connection, a special one that is.

I happened to be interested since Perry seems to be more involved with Candace than Phineas and Ferb (not counting the fact that his battles against Dr. Doofenshmirtz made most of their inventions disappear). The scenarios involving Perry and Candace that I remember are Perry appearing in Candace's bedroom in this episode where some of the big focuses are Candace hates Perry but actually shows that she loves him when he disappears, Perry and Candace switching brains, and Perry dreaming of Candace dreaming about Phineas and Ferb get busted.

There are some fan theories that says that Candace's dream from Wizard of Odd is also Perry's. There are some evidence of this, like the dream having Agent P, Dr. Doofenshmirtz and even Major Monogram. And it also appears that there's a Perry POV there too. I think every scene in the episode would have either Candace or Perry. Also, when Candace wakes up, there's also Perry lying beside her.

There are a few theories around this special relation ship between Candace and Perry. Some say that Candace and Perry are mind-linked, some may think that Perry is Candace, and I think it's that Perry is Candace's father who really care about her. Aww...

You: Hmm?
Stranger: You know, the violence.
You: What do you refer to when you mention "both sides"?
Stranger: Spongebob and phineas and ferb.
