Ferb is in Phineas and Ferb

"Ferb" Fletcher is a British Fletcher child currently living in Danville. He is the stepson of Linda Flynn and son of Lawrence Fletcher. He has a stepsister named Candace, and a stepbrother named Phineas. He is friends with Buford, Baljeet, and Isabella.

Very laconic, Ferb is not actually shy like one would assume, but very courageous and clever. Quick thinking and on his feet about things, Ferb is a mechanical and technical genius, Ferb has built a plethora of things, from a roller coaster to a rocket to robots.

Early life


Ferb (right) with Phineas and Candace.

Ferb was born in England to Lawrence Fletcher and an unnamed mother. Eventually, Ferb and his father moved to Danville. There, Lawrence met a woman named Linda Flynn and fell in love with her at a Love Händel concert. ("Dude, We're Getting the Band Back Together")

Lawrence and Linda got married, and Ferb was joined by a stepbrother and stepsister, Phineas and Candace. Phineas and Ferb developed a very strong bond, making them more than step brothers, but also best friends. ("Mom's Birthday", "Rollercoaster")

Summer adventures

Beginning months

File:Phineas-roller coaster.jpg

Phineas realizes that summer doesn't last forever, and decides to make summer last by doing outrageous things. Phineas and Ferb decide to build a rollercoaster that extends from their backyard to all over town. Not only did they create a rollercoaster, but they created a beach in their backyard as well, where Ferb sang his first song, Backyard Beach. A short while after that, Ferb became a member of the Phineas and the Ferb-Tones, where they became one-hit wonders in just a day. ("Rollercoaster", "Lawn Gnome Beach Party of Terror", "Flop Starz")

Ferb helped Phineas remodel Mount Rushmore for Candace's birthday, carving Candace's face into the sculpture. Ferb was also a very successful time-traveler, since he and Phineas fixed a time machine at the local museum, traveling back in time to 300 million B.C. Phineas and Ferb accidentally brought Candace with them, breaking the time machine in the process. Together they took the time to practice patience while Isabella and the Fireside Girls created another time machine to retrieve them. ("It's About Time!")

Phineas and Ferb helped reunite Love Händel back together for their parents' anniversary. While Phineas was trying to talk the band members into getting back together, Ferb started making music with random objects to help start a song. Later that day, Love Händel was reunited. ("Dude, We're Getting the Band Back Together!")

Ferb and his stepbrother went into space to see the star his father had bought for them. Their sister accidentally tagged along though, and the three went on a perilous journey through the galaxy. Surviving an asteroid field and other dangers, they ran out of fuel and stopped at an asteroid where a milkshake bar stood. There, Phineas and Ferb found out that it was really a star and they owned it. Phineas and Ferb returned home and accompanied Isabella to the Night of the Falling Stars dance. ("Out to Launch")

Middle months

Phineas and Ferb were asked for help by their friend, Baljeet, to help him build a portal to Mars. They successfully built it, helping Baljeet get an A++ for his science grade. Ferb also received a camera and a chemistry set from Bastille Day. He used the chemistry set to help Baljeet grow his shrunken watermelon to be 50 feet tall, and the camera to make friends with Nosey, the Lake Nose Monster. ("Unfair Science Fair", "Attack of the 50 Foot Sister", "The Lake Nose Monster")

Heinz Doofenshmirtz once caused the entire universe to grow large, but everything seemed normal to Ferb and everyone else, as it did not look different. ("Attack of the 50 Foot Sister!")

Ferb and his brother met Meap, a cute space alien who was searching for his nemesis, Mitch. Phineas and Ferb accidentally knocked his spaceship into their backyard because they were playing baseball. Meap ran off with Candace to her Bango-Ru convention. While Phineas was busy trying to find Meap with his Cute-O-Meter, Ferb was repairing Meap's spaceship. ("The Chronicles of Meap")

Ferb tested Meap's spaceship out for a run when he was done repairing it. He stopped by Vanessa Doofenshmirtz, whom he was particularly fond of, and backed up a bit to flirt with her. ("The Chronicles of Meap")

Ferb eventually met his neighbors' relatives, whom were named Thaddeus and Thor. Ferb bears an uncanny resemblance to Thor, and sure enough, it turns out that the two like to build stuff as well as Phineas and Ferb do. They then compete on who can build the biggest backyard fort, and of course, Phineas and Ferb's fort wins. ("Thaddeus and Thor")


Main article: Fletcher family

Ferb's family dates back to the Victorian age, in Druelselstein, where his ancestor Ferbgor created monsters alongside infamous Dr. Phineastein. His grandfather also has a famous legacy, being the daredevil of his age, the "Flying Fishmonger", who jumped things on his motorbike, the Holy Mackerel. ("The Monster of Phineas-n-Ferbenstein", "The Flying Fishmonger")

Ferb is a very intelligent boy who rarely speaks. His intelligence and skill are tested every day in his and Phineas' nearly impossible plans, and he always succeeds. Ferb does not show much facial expression and only occasionally smiles or frowns. He is very focused, but he has once been distracted from his goals after seeing Vanessa at Blueprint Heaven. Although very young, Ferb occasionally demonstrates a mindset that is more akin to a young adult than a child. This is demonstrated especially in the case of Girls, even going as far as to say that he also takes part in these nearly impossible plans "...for the ladies." (Thaddeus and Thor, Chronicles of Meap). However, this doesn't stop Ferb from enjoying more juvenile activities. In addition Ferb enjoys participating in unusual and/or downright eccentric activities or antics; such as doing dolphin style swimming in the sea (Swiss Family Phineas) to going down a water-slide using butter as a lubricant (Elementary, My Dear Stacy). Ferb also has a huge appetite and even in Lights, Candace, Action reverts to a primal mindset when he hasn't eaten lunch. Although he rarely talks, Ferb demonstrates a wry wit (Lawn Gnome Beach Party of Terror, Dude, We're Getting the Band Back Together, Let's Take a Quiz) and isn't afraid to speak his mind when it suits him (Elementary, My Dear Stacy, At The Car Wash, Does This Duckbill Make Me Look Fat?) The only time Ferb talked the whole day was when they became secret agents, ("Ready for the Bettys") whilst the most he spoke was in The Chronicles of Meap and Thaddeus and Thor.

To see what lines Ferb has spoken, refer to List of Ferb's lines.

Like his step-brother Phineas, he is persistent in making summer great.


Ferb is good at playing the guitar, saxophone, trombone, synthesizer/keyboard, maracas, tambourine, bass, trumpet, bagpipes, harmonica and the drums. He is very intelligent and can think on the spot. He can ride and owns a bike.

Ferb has mechanical and technological skill. He has almost single-handily built a roller coaster and track, a real radio-controlled race car, several arenas and stadiums, a space laser (which was supposed to be an ice cream maker but the plans got accidentally switched), a monster truck, a shrinking submarine, and a time machine.

He can also sing and can change his voice to another amplitude (as seen in the Backyard Beach, Gitchee, Gitchee, Goo and It's a Spa Day songs, along with his participation in the haunted house). He has an expanded vocabulary, and is fluent in French as well as the Martian language. ("Lawn Gnome Beach Party of Terror", "Flop Starz". "One Good Scare Oughta Do It!", "Run Away, Runway", and "Unfair Science Fair")


Phineas Flynn

File:PF under a tree.png

Phineas is not just Ferb's stepbrother, he is also his best friend. Ferb always helps Phineas with their daily activities. If it wasn't for Phineas' creativity and Ferb's knack for inventing things, their daily activities would never happen. An infrequent running gag in the series is that Phineas accidentally causes Ferb bodily harm as a result of the latters obliviousness (One Good Scare Ought To Do It!, Chronicles of Meap).

The two have known each other for almost their whole lives, and spend every second of the day together. Perhaps the greatest example of the two's everlasting friendship is when Phineas states that he couldn't ever ask for a better brother than he.

Candace Flynn

Ferb helped Candace countless times, and loves her as a brother loves a sister. He helped build Candace plenty of things, with help from Phineas. Not much is known of Ferb and Candace's relationship, due to the fact that Ferb rarely speaks to her at all.

Perry the Platypus

Ferb is very close to Perry, and seems to care for him as much as Phineas does.

Lawrence Fletcher

Lawrence is Ferb's real dad. Ferb helps Lawrence out a lot and loves him very much.

Linda Flynn

Even though Linda is not Ferb's blood mother, he treats her with a lot of respect and loves her as though she is his blood mother.

Isabella Garcia-Shapiro

Isabella is good friends with Ferb, perhaps because he's the stepbrother of her crush, Phineas.

Isabella obviously does not have romantic interest in Ferb like she does with Phineas. However, when Candace implies to Isabella that she may instead end up marrying Ferb, Ferb responds by giving a winking look in her direction, implying that he may have some affection for her, in spite of his crush on Vanessa. ("Phineas and Ferb's Quantum Boogaloo")

Vanessa Doofenshmirtz


When Ferb was picking up plans for their latest contraption, he first meets Vanessa Doofenshmirtz. He develops romantic attraction to her, which leads to a mix-up between the plans he was picking up and those that Vanessa was picking up for her father. When later asked by Phineas how he got the plans confused, Ferb responds "I was weak." ("I Scream, You Scream")

Ferb encounters Vanessa again while test-driving Meap's spacecraft. When he sees that he passed by her, he backs up the spacecraft and looks at her as if he were trying to flirt with her. She responds by smiling at him in a way that suggests she may have some affection for him as well. ("The Chronicles of Meap")

During "Vanessassary Roughness", Ferb repeatedly offers his help to Vanessa, even though he is initially rebuffed. She learns his name, and calls it out when she was in trouble. She even kisses him on the cheek at the end.

Background Information


  • "Ferb" is revealed to be a shortened version of his actual name. The birthname of the man whom Ferb is named and based on is Frank, so it is likely the same goes with the cartoon Ferb.[1]
  • He has one eye that is larger than the other. The eye furthest away from the viewpoint of the audience is one that is always larger. When Ferb turns his head, the size of both eyes change, swapping sizes (the small eye enlarges and the large eye shrinks). However, his right eye is the larger of the two when he is viewed head on. This may be an homage to Bill the Cat, the feline from Berkeley Breathed's various comic strips. Bill's eyes also change size, with the larger eye always being closest to the reader's viewpoint.
File:Original logo.png
  • Ferb was named after a friend of creators Jeff "Swampy" Marsh and Dan Povenmire who knows everything about tools. Though, as stated by the creators, "Ferb is anything but quiet."
  • Ferb's voice is provided by British actor Thomas Sangster, who uses his same voice for Ferb. His singing voice is provided by other actors, and not necessarily the same one. (Backyard Beach, The Paper Pelican Floor Show)
  • In the Original Pitch, Ferb is one of the few characters to remain pretty much the same as his initial outcome. The only difference is that he doesn't speak at all. This could be that the creators didn't intend on Ferb ever speaking.
  • He has obtained 5 world records. 4 with Phineas (largest bowling ball, largest bowling game, 2 records in 1 day, largest paper-mache aeroplane) and 1 without Phineas (as shown, fastest flowing on a water slide). ("Bowl-R-Ama Drama", "Elementary, My Dear Stacy", "De Plane! De Plane!")
  • Due to old English phone booth with the name Chelsea on it in the back of his side of the room, it is possible he is from Chelsea, London.
  • In Rocko's Modern Life, a show that Jeff "Swampy" Marsh and Dan Povenmire worked on, someone with the name "Ferb" is mentioned many times.
