What Is The Real Story Behind Phineas And Ferb?
What is the real story behind Phineas and Ferb? The Phineas and Ferb real story is based on the life of its creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff Marsh.
The theory that the cartoon show is about a Russian Schizophrenic girl named Candace Flynn is still not verified. There have been narratives that suggest Candace was a real person with a dark truth. Here are all the facts you need to know about.
Phineas and Ferb is a show that won the hearts of many kids and adults. We all wanted 104 days of summer vacation and a good way to spend it like Phineas and Ferb did.
Their inventions were something that we could only dream of. We wished to ride the rollercoaster with loops, drops, a mud bath, rubber snakes, and even a car wash or spend our summers in an extravagant treehouse that turns into a giant fighting robot with just a press of a button.
The show is incomplete without Perry the Platypus stopping Dr. Doofenshmirtz from using his evil Inators and Candace trying to bust Phineas and Ferb for the inventions.
Is The Show Phineas and Ferb Based On A True Story?
The show Phineas and Ferb is loosely based on the summers Dan Povenmire and Jeff Marsh had growing up, according to Okay Bliss.
The creators Dan and Jeff used to spend their summer vacation in mobile and the cartoon was sort of inspired by that, Dan mentioned in an interview with Al.com. His mother always tried to get him and his siblings to do creative things rather than watch TV.
Dan's mom would always have different creative projects for him and his siblings. Their summer vacations included building forts or doing several bizarre activities. His passion for creating films and television shows also sparked during one of those summer vacations.
His mother would drape dark-colored materials across the living room so that he could use it as a space field. Then Povenmire would add miniature model spaceships for the movies he filmed with a Super 8 camera.
Jeff and Povenmire have also mentioned that the series was also inspired by two classic TV series such as The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle and Sesame Streets.
The creators' inspiration for the show sound fun and light-hearted, but an eerie story circulating on the internet claims to be true.
The Internet Claims Phineas And Ferb Is Based On The Imagination Of A Russian Girl
The Phineas and Ferb dark story is about a Russian girl named Candace Flynn. It is said that Candace imagined all the crazy adventures of her brothers in order to gain her mother's attention after her parents separation.
Her brother Phineas was said to be born with hyperactivity and her half-brother Ferb couldn't talk due to mental illness.
Concerned for her daughter's well-being, Flynn's mom sent her to a doctor named Heinz Doofenshmirtz. Candace's condition got even worse after consuming the medicine prescribed by the doctor.
When Flynn was unable to get her mother's attention as she wanted, the young girl began to write her brothers' adventures stories in a diary.
In 2007, Flynn took her own life. After her demise, her parents found the diary and sold it to Disney. Many fans of the show believe that the story is fake since the timelines do not add up.
Fans Debunk The Narrative Of The Russian Girl's Imagination
Several fans of Phineas and Ferb are unhappy with the fake stories that have been circulating on the internet. They believe that it is overshadowing the fact that it is actually the creators Dan and Jeff's idea.
There is no evidence of who published the story claiming that the cartoon is inspired by the imagination of the Russian girl. One user on DeviantArt listed the facts and lies about the story.
Here are the facts presented by the user named TarzanSimba on DeviantArt regarding the fake narrative of the show.
- As per the narrative, the Russian girl's parents sold her diary to Disney in 2007. In reality, the show was already on TV around that making it impossible for Disney to create something that big in a short time.
- The real creators of Phineas and Ferb are Dan Povenmire and Jeff Marsh, not Disney. Dan and Jeff had created it way before the girl was born (1993). The creators had spent 16 years trying to their idea on TV.
- There is evidence or record of a girl named Candace Flynn and a slim chance for the names of the family members to be exactly the same.
Audiences are mad that people are unnecessarily creating fake stories and ruining the hard work of the creators. Nowadays, people on the internet are sharing dark truths or narratives of children's shows such as Teletubbies, Smurfs, Winnie the Pooh, Peppa Pig, and more.
Phineas And Ferb Dark Truth
In recent times, a narrative suggested that Candace might have Schizophrenia. The story has gone viral on several social media platforms.
The audience of the program is familiar with Candace's catchphrase "You guys are so busted, I'm telling Mom." The catchphrase has been used every time before she tells her mother about Phineas and Ferb's inventions. There is even a song titled "Busted" that Candace sings in the episode I Scream, You Scream.
Whenever Candace tries to show the inventions to her mom, it always gets destroyed by Dr. Doofenshmirtz's evil Inators. Their mother Linda or their father Lawrence are never aware of the boys' creations. Even the episode where they are busted was all Flynn's dream.
After several years the audience of the show came up with a theory that believes that Candace is Schizophrenic and inventions are all her imagination. Some fans agreed with the theory while others thought it was an unnecessary stretch for a cartoon program.
The theories include Flynn being a Schizophrenic girl but due to different tragic incidents revolving her brothers.
Was Phineas And Ferb Based On A Schizophrenic Girl?
There are many fan theories that suggests Phineas and Ferb is based on a Schizophrenic girl. But the real truth is still not uncovered.
According to a Reddit user, Phineas and Ferb's creations are all part of Candace's imagination since the brothers' inventions are never caught by Linda. It is said that Flynn is in denial regarding her brothers' demise which took place prior to the events showcased in the series.
The user also mentioned Dr. Doofenshmirtz being Flynn's therapist and her imagination made her believe that he is evil.
The theory has been debunked by other Reddit users, stating that there is no hard evidence backing the theory. They also pointed out that if she had Schizophrenia then every shot in the series should have been from her perspective. The boys are still shown even when she is not present.
Another theory on Reddit suggests that Phineas' childhood demise and Ferb's disability became a traumatic experience for Candace. So, creates a world inside her head where the boys play together and create new things.
The last episode of the series showcases Phineas and Ferb headed off to college which represents Flynn's acceptance of her brother's demise.
Another theory suggests that Phineas' passed away as a bully punched him hard on his head. The theorist thinks that Phineas got bullied because others thought he was too nerdy.
A Theory Also Suggests That The Mom Knew About The Inventions
A Redditor named CandyDrugLord shared a personal theory stating that Linda secretly knows about the boys' creations but doesn't confirm it to Candace as there won't be any inspiration for her writing that is based on her daughter.
In some episodes of the series, Linda is seen talking about writing a book about dealing with teens. Linda is also seen writing down what her daughter says to use as comedy in her book.
The Redditor also highlighted that Linda's husband (the monster truck episode) has been part of the adventure and also the entire town during the S'winter and beach episodes.
So, it is impossible for her to not be aware of the boys' adventures.
