phineas and ferb

I’m fascinated by the fact that Phineas and Ferb is a show that actually exists

I can understand how someone could have come up with the idea of an animated show about stepbrothers trying to find cool ways to spend their summer vacation
And from there I can see how the characters of Candace, Isabella, Beauford, Baljeet, Jeremy, and Stacy came about
But at what godforsaken point in the thought process did someone go, “Hey, what if there’s an ongoing subplot about their pet who’s a secret agent trying to stop a German guy from channeling his anger towards his abusive parents into conquering the tri-state area?”

Best Cartoon Dad

The best cartoon dad and one of my favorite is Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz from Phineas and Ferb

Unlike most Dads where they’re, of course caring and loving to their child, give good advise, dorky jokes, cool and protective like 

Greg Universe from Steven Universe

What makes him stand out more to me is his backstories. Unlike the other dad’s I’ve mention, his is probably one of the most tragic stories I’ve ever heard.

His parents didn’t show up to his birth 

His father force him to be the gnome when his gnome were all gone 

Also been force to wear girls clothing for the his childhood so his younger brother could wear them

He was raised by Ocelot 

Bested by his younger brother 

His father name his dog “Only Son”… harsh 

Also he hated Heinz for shaming the family when he couldn’t dive in the pool 

He made his own surprise birthday party 

You probably think that his tragic story should make a true villain? Nope, instead he becomes a real dork and fun villain to watch.

And instead of ignoring his family and take them for granted like any other villain would do, he actually tries to be a good dad to his daughter, Vanessa. Although he’s an ex-husband, doesn’t mean he’ll stop trying to support her daughter. 

Like he set surprise birthday parties, even though she didn’t ask for them like a dorky father will do 

He cheered her on first swimming team 

Clapped the loudest on her school play 

He taught her how to drive 

Overprotective

And the best father moment is he didn’t stop to find a Mary McGuffen doll for the past 10 years for her 

Heinz Doofenshmirtz is without a doubt, the best cartoon dad ever in all of cartoon shows. Although he considered himself a evil scientist, he’s a good man in my book

Happy Father’s Day!

This might be obvious but i really love cartoons and I really love how much effort is placed into cartoons these days like its been a real golden age for cartoons these past decade and I hope that continues.
