The person who gave him that crayon created memories for a whole generation
@Nizami 3 how is that scary
I still watch it
only to find out that it's himself in the future.
"I didn't just trip and fall with a pencil"
Obviously.It was a crayon!
Nope with a crayon
Yeah it was a crayon
I tripped and fell with a pencil...It went up my foot and now I have a scar there.
I like to imagine Dan tripping with a pencil and catching himself with the pencil tip on a piece of paper, and then proceeded to draw Phineas in extreme detail
@Charlie Kowitt Music 🤦
@Orange Nostril Uhh.. I think you’re taking this a little too seriously kiddo.Peace lol ✌️
@Charlie Kowitt Music bruhh imagine making a joke and someone's like "incorrect, I didn't guess the punchline" 😳
@Orange Nostril In other words, hundreds of us expected the joke to end one way. And the OP veered at the last second. The other guy wrote what we were ALL thinking, Bruh.
@Charlie Kowitt Music "correct joke" bruh
I love the fact that Phineas just acted scared or anxious in one episode, and in Dan's napkin it looks like he's having a panic attack💀
You have to appreciate people like Dan. He's a real go-getter. While he was developing this idea that would become one of the best kid's shows of all time a lot of people were letting life go by day after day never reaching out for something better. I mean, myself for example, in 1993 I wasn't doing anything with my life. Heck. The only thing I did that year was be born. Man, if only I had that time back.
Same except i did not exist
I didn't do much either, except for not existing yet.
I wasn’t doing anything either. Because there was no me to be doing things in the first place.
Eyyy I was just like you in 1993… not doing shit with my life… except for being born lol
Aksjdjdjsjdjdjd YOU HAD ME IN THE FIRST HALF NOT GONNA LIE
I love when the artist/creator can debunk what people think they are soooo smart about and spit out these “facts” lol love your work Dan!!
I like the dark circles around phineas's eyes. It gives him a dark edgy look
@ElectrikStatik I see you like using question marks
I'm sorry, but your comment makes no sense????????
Look up phineas sing 21 guns
The fact he has that very doodle framed in his house is AMAZING. I love this guy.
Designs first started in 1993, The first episode aired in 2007. Never give up even if it takes years!
That would be 13 years, because it was accepted by Disney and officially began production late 2006.
@Wuvumgywgy ! right now, i do paper comics with this little dude, basically in the art style of object showshe's a pumpkin with limbs named Jack O. yes, Jack-O Landern. planning to make a game (first), then show (2nd) in like 2030 or some sh*t if we survive. Kinda like Cuphead.
@Eljay MenesesLeonardo DaVinci took a whole 12 years or 4 years to complete Monalisa, not because procrastinating but because he was a slow worker and put effort on thought. A prove that art need time not to rush.Edit: idk who i originally wrote this for.
@NicDoesDumbThings I mean im making little comics in my sketchbook with those characters, so thats practice ig. But thanks for the advice.
So glad you created these characters! My children have enjoyed this show immensely and it has become a huge part of their happy childhood memories 🥰
I'm really convinced everyone has great ideas throughout there life that could make a significant impact on the world but the difference between people who are successful and notable and those who aren't has mostly to do with follow through and commitment. Just imagine how easy it would've been for him to be like "huh cool charactr" then throw it away and proceed about his day. That great series would've never been born and we'd never know who he is. Imagine how many great concepts, stories, and ideas are thought up and thrown away.
Well said Mr. Reese
Wow, Dan is really trying to cover up how he tripped and accidentally drew Phineas on the ground as he tried to stand up
you're such a wholesome guy! thanks for making everyone's days brighter!
I love how some of the best cartoons in history came from this man, and they all come at unexpected times
I LOVE that you have that first conceptual doodle framed, that’s such a timepiece
A great childhood based around a doodle, amazing show and it will always hold a place in my heart
When you randomly draw geometric shapes then they sculpt an entire generation
I love this, thank you for sharing this with us !!!
Hands down one of my family's favorite shows of all time as a parent I can sing these songs 😂
Hey Dan I've always been curious. How did you come to the color scheme for Phineas and Ferb as characters?
OMG that tutorial is SO OLD!!! I stumbled upon it when I was a child and tried to learn how to draw Phineas from it!!! You unlocked a memory I forgot I had!!
"He drew him by accident"Dan: "OH FUCK I did it again"
@MA9009 (ALERT: Boring Videos) Por qué?
"help i accidentally drew a phineas"
Thank you for creating these characters! I still love that show and I'm almost 40
Phineas and Ferb is one of my favorite shows, thanks Dan
Absolute legend. Im sure I owe this show all my creativity
You truly created one of the best childhood cartoons of my life. Thanks to you.
Thank you for debunking these "fun facts" tiktokers. They barely do any research and spitball Wikipedia at people.
it was semi an accident
@Verified You can't. Try doing it yourself, and see whether your edits are ever even published.
@Verified People can counter edit for false information. It's meant to be an overview for basic information.
All it takes is a person giving someone a crayon and it'll make memories for future generations
"So how did you create this fantastic show?""Oh, it was an accident!"
I just love how you made the show and yet you voice the villain
i hope you know, that this show was my childhood. i appreciate you so much dan!
Im glad he was doodling those characters cause if he didn’t we wouldn’t have such a awesome/amazing show
Love coming across this.. this show was one my favourite shows as a kid 👏
This guy made my childhood. And made me the person I am today. Thank you.
That's incredible! 1993! I wasn't even born yet! Honestly, I'm sort of glad the show wasn't aired until so much later because then, I was able to enjoy it during my childhood!
@Rowan404 just kidding but seriously, I’m not that old..I’m on the youngest side of that spectrum but I’m far from being a kid anymore. I suggested you have some alternative to make money because I was like you too, and if I had gotten used to doing uncomfortable things like working retail instead of telling myself I was too good for any of that, I wouldn’t be in the situation I’m in now, which is unemployed and still living off my parents. There were a lot of painful years where I had basically no money. You should avoid that lol.
@Unit 02 My parents are my benefactors. I don't really care about financial independence as my parents are still alive and well and I have a good relationship with them. They had some money set aside for me to go to college, but, since I'm not going to, that's just more for my inheritance! They'll even let me inherit my childhood home once I save up $10,000. Speaking of inheritance, my great grandma died when I was 4 and left me $5000, and I'll have access to that and interest when I turn 18 in about 3 months.However, I am still working on a temporary way to make money. As I said, I don't like being bossed around, so I wouldn't want to work a traditional part-time job (customer service in particular would be a nightmare for me as I would then be bossed around by customers too), but I'm working on a demo reel in hopes of landing a few small voice acting gigs.Anyways, I'm curious: What do you do for a living? Do you have a college degree, seeing as you're a millennial?
@Rowan404 I would recommend you get a part time job at least just to help you like, survive…unless you have a benefactor in which case, great. But the sooner you have financial independence from your family the better
@Rowan404 I didn’t say you were, just people your age. And it’s not a recommendation either. If you have the vision to make your dreams come true then go for it. There are so many ways to go about it nowadays.
If I could time travel, I would love to see him doodle this out, the birth of one of my fav tv shows as a kid, life is getting harder and sometimes I wish I could go back, I never will but this reminds me of simpler times
I like how the first few expression you decided to give Phineas was “WAAAAAAAH!”
Any words in any language can express my gratitude for what you did. You made my childhood wonderful. I absolutely loved the new movie. Wonderful.
Wow, it's interesting to know that the idea of Phineas and Ferb came around over 10 years before the show came out!
The coolest part of this is knowing you frame your doodles that inspire these amazing things. It’s cool to know that history is preserved somewhere
It’s awesome to see this stuff…. Your show was a big part of my childhood….
I like how he framed and kept his own original drawings of his own show’s characters …
It's absolutely insane to me how long Phineas and Ferb existed as a concept before becoming a real show. The show premiered when I was 9, but these drawings were done before I was even born
your show was literally my childhood. keep up the good work!
I love how the first guy just dismiss all your process of creation by calling it an accident! Some people baffles me!
I mean it wasn't on purpose I guess lol But I dislike those kinda videos so NO POINTS!
I don’t think he was intentionally dismissing it, I think it likely wasn’t worded the best. I took it more as “one of the most recognizable cartoon characters of our generation wasn’t originally drawn with that purpose” which is pretty rad, and makes me slightly more hopeful about projects I’ve got laying around I don’t really have a plan for - some of the best things weren’t made with a clear plan.
Yeah.Its like saying Einstein came up with his theory of general relativity by spilling his coffee on a chalkboard or something.
@automatic captions The prevalence of "tik tok experts" sets a terrible precedent in just about everything they do.
Tbh, the best artwork ive ever created was in those resturant papers, they always looks awesome
the way that one drawing of phineas expresses more emotion than he does in the whole series
I could never tell you enough how much I looooooved "Phineas and Ferb"💕💕💕
Respectfully debunks false information, also gives out legitimately interesting insight. Good Video!
Tbh dan should have made that skit him tripping and falling and make like some really good art
He would trip on a perry plushie like when candace tripped on perry
@High Definition a triangle boy who was a main character in one of the most iconic cartoon shows
When you roll a 20 on a fall
It's alright, I mean it's just a triangle boi
I watched every episode and movie of this and I loved it so much I would always run home after school and watch it when ever it’s on!
"Hey bro, what do you wanna steal in this guy's house?""Oh, THIS MASTERPIECE""W-what?!, A Drawing that is 20% broken?"
"There's no such thing as mistakes, just happy lil accidents~"Dan: It was not an accident, I didn't trip, I didn't fall...Me: :v ok sir
I've always thought that design looked like a corn chip. I knew the creator was hungry.
Dude I love your profile pic
D00000000000000d. Hahaha yes!
@Gergana Kuzmova I swear this person is everywhere-
Dan I hope you know how much we all appreciate you
Thank you for made my childhood memorable ❤️❤️
I love the show I have watched over 100 times. I went to sleep to it every night during elementary school. So thank you for making a great show. 😊😊😊
"That was like 1993 so that was a while ago."Doesn't that mean he spent 13 years pitching the show before it got accepted by Disney? A lot of online sources say it was 16 years. (Of course, that could be another online theory that Dan is debunking.)
That truly is a “hey Ferb, I know what we’re gonna do today” moment.
"... we are going to exist"
*_"Hey bro I this is gonna make us famous I swear!!"_*
"Hey Swampy, I know what we're gonna do today"
There's a hundred and four days of summer vacation, and school comes along just to end it! so the annual problem for our generation is finding a good way to spend it, like maybe!Building a rocket, or fighting a mummy, or climbing up the Eiffel Tower. Discovering something that doesn't exist, hey! or giving a monkey a shower. Surfing tidal waves, creating nanobots, and locating Frankenstein's brain, its over here! Finding a dodo bird, painting a continent, and driving your sister insane, PHiniaS! As you can see, there's a whole lot of stuff to do before school starts this fall, so stick with us cus Phineas and Ferb are going to do it aaall.So stick with us cus Phineas and Ferb are going to do it aall. "MO-OM, Phineas and Ferb are making a title sequence!"
I heard the jingle too I can’t-
This man is just an absolute legend he is so talented like jeez
So you created my whole childhood from a doodle? Thank you.
The perspective is insightful, thanks man. I’m not an artist in that way. But sounds like sometimes your work can take time to flourish and sometimes ideas simply flourish. While waiting for food sometimes, hmm. Back to cutting. ;(
Thank you for creating this master piece
You know I got it sir I have a lot of respect for you I watched your show going up a lot as a kid I was born in 2004 and you know as a kid and the show was pretty dope and going back and watching it now that I'm older it's still pretty awesome he's 104 days and summer vacation I'll tell you how I'm spending them I'm binge watching all the original seasons of Phineas and Ferb you remind me of a modern Walt Disney just want to thank you for all the awesome memories and have a chill summer vacation dude
That’s awesome that you still have the original drawings!!
Thank you sir you literally made my childhood with this show
This man is cool. Almost feels like my granpa telling me stories ..
I love how Dan gives us these insights on his creative process.
So glad you created these characters! My children have enjoyed this show immensely and it has become a huge part of their happy childhood memories
Thank you. You made my childhood better. ❤️
Took 14 years for it to get the pilot out? That’s some discipline and dedication on the creators side of the show. Aka this guy, Dan Povenmire.. Nice work brother! I love this side of social media, how these “creators” can go onto make these small clips, now we have this clip to have Reference as to when how and even wear that it was created, so we got it from the horses mouth as they say.
The funniest part to me is that there’s a restaurant that gives out crayons and paper to their adult patrons. Honestly a pretty cool idea I wish more places did that.
You where like:" Dan, i know what we're gonna do today!"
Love how animators will tell the real story lol
I like thinking about stuff like this when I see people being so gatekeepey on how you have to plan and structure your stories and develop your characters. You don’t need to pull out a character template every time you create a character if that doesn’t work for you. Sometimes great ideas come from unexpected places like this.
This cartoon didn’t come out in 1993 it actually taken that long for a show to get approved
By far my favorite show growing up my man... super underrated show
I love it when you create a character design and then end up liking the design so much that they somehow acquire personalities.
O7 thank you for saving our childhoods you’re a legend
Thanks for a sweet ass show to grow up on, ur the man we all didn’t know we ❤️
I love Dan Povenmire so much. He's so wholesome.
Thank you for giving us a fun fact about our childhood!
It’s always funny when people that make the “fun facts” get completely destroyed when the actual creator proves they were wrong
This guy MADE my childhood. Thank you
Imagine if they didn't gave him a crayon, the show would've likely still came out, but the possibility of the characters designs being altered are high.
THANK YOU TO THE PERSON THAT GAVE HIM THOSE CRAYONS YOU MADE MY CHILDHOOD
I love Dan and his passion for Phineas and Ferb . I grew up watching Phineas and Ferb in India and I still watch it occasionally .
this man needs a new show
Just think that if he didn’t decide to doodle that day then this legend of a show would never have been created
does he voice some of the characters as well? the doofensmmhmirtz bit was pretty accurate
I love the character designs in Phineas and Ferb. Milo Murphy's Law characters look like extras tbh
That’s super cool thanks for making our childhoods great
OH MY LORD I BEEN WATCHING THIS GUY FOR A WHILE NOW AND JUST REALISE HE DREW MY CHILDHOOD CHARTOON SHOW
Well, you can technically call that an "accident" because it wasn't your intention to draw the specific character.You were inspired by your doodle to create a show. Sounds fair.
I love that Dan does TikTok/RU-clip shorts it’s like I grew up with his show and now that I’m an adult I get to enjoy the mind of the creator of one of my favorite childhood shows kinda the same thing with Hank Green
He drew them in 1993 and we didn't get the show til so many years later. I had no idea. Worth the wait though! The show is now a classic!
wait so y’all had this show just sitting, and chillin for over 10 years before it got released..? wow, that’s insane
In 1993 I was 5 and you were creating legendary characters that would help raise a generation.
