    Ferb

    Post by Roy42 on Wed Mar 04, 2009 9:49 am

    First topic message reminder :

    Ferb is one of the main characters of the show, hence his name in the title of the show. In comparison to his step-brother Phineas, or anyone, or even when on his own, Ferb is fairly quiet, he is a man of action, who firmly believes that actions speak louder than words, though when he does, his cool, calm British accent only accentuates the intelligent and deep thoughts that emerge from his mouth. Despite his not saying much, he always proves that he cares for Phineas as he always is keen to put his hands to work on the latest plan for enhanced awesomeness. Ferb has 2 siblings, loving parents, the same close circle of friends as Phineas and the same fame that accompanies Phineas from the Tri-State area.

    Share your thoughts on this character.

    I like Ferb because he only speaks when it is absolutely necessary to, and in that way, he avoids making himself look like a complete idiot, especially in front of others. In addition, whenever Ferb speaks, he makes sure what he says makes sense. There are days in which I wish I could imitate Ferb in that way, as I have seen and heard many people say just stupid stuff in which they end up putting their foot in thier mouth not once or twice, but multiple times.......sometimes in one day!

    You mean, Dan and Swampy make sure what he says makes sense, yes? Ok ok, back to the show.

    Yes, that is always going to be a good quality of Ferb, because he doesn't speak as much as anyone else would, even if his voice is that awesome, if he speaks constantly and with full lines, it just ruins the magic.

    Yup, that is what I meant. Ferb only speaking one or two lines during the show is better than him yapping away. In fact, I do enjoy the contrast in personalities between Phineas as an outgoing person, and Ferb as a man of few words, as it makes the interaction between the two intersting to watch.

    I also like when Phineas says something like "blahblahblah Ferb says blahblahlblah." since it implies that Ferb might speak a lot more than we ever hear him, but only with Phineas' word for it.

    Hmm.....don't know what to say to that. Since Ferb rarely speaks (save for a line or two in every episode) it is pertty hard to know what he is thinking also. For example, in "The Lake Nose Monster" one can only guess what Ferb was thinking when Phineas was smashing his camera on the ground. If Ferb could speak, he would probably express his anger at Phineas for destroying his camera. Some people would say that Ferb does not speak because he has a hard time expressing himself. I seriously beg to differ.

    Oh, good point. Now that I think about it, I could talk in fluent sentences when I was a year old, and I'm certainly not as smart as Ferb is.

    BigNeerav wrote: Ferb's dad (Lawrence) still has a pretty strong British accent, even though it has been years since he married Linda and moved to the U.S. from Britian, and that would still have an influence on Ferb's ability to still keep his British acccent.

    Hmm... I don't think that Lawrence's accent would still have an effect on Ferb's. That person I know I mentioned before has two parents with accents, and yet the fact that the majority of people around him have an American accent is enough to overwhelm that.

    Just interesting to point out because I'm studying Linguistics and language acquisition for my exam tomorrow, and children at age 1 definitely cannot speak in fluent sentences (except for maybe some super-genius child). Between 12 and 18 months, most children are in the 1 word stage - where they are beginning to refer to objects and people by a certain sound - such as "baba" for bottle. By two years the average child is starting to construct two-word sentences. In this stage from two to three years, the ability to learn language grows at very different rates.

    I worked with 3 year olds for quite a while a couple of years ago, and most of them could speak words and full sentences, but they were very hard to understand. Still others used very short sentences, and some barely spoke at all. Pretty sure 99.9% of 1 year olds can no-way speak fluently.

    Off-topic and random, but any way to study for my exam and be somewhat contributing to the conversation is worth it in my eyes. Wink

    Well then, I guess Ferb and I were super-genius children.

    Though that was probably already established in the very first episode of the series.

    Well, eeemeee, what I am not sure is whether he might lose that British accent altogether, since he was born British. I was trying to see if possible that one's enviornment affects the person, including his or her accent, but that does not seem to be the case at all, it seems. For Ferb, I don't think it will happen, and will most likely keep his British accent like his dad. Ferb is pertty cool with his British accent when he speaks.

    Yeah, I did mention Ferb's environment, but... it seems my post was deleted. And so was ITP's.

    Erm, could somebody answer why? I'm pretty sure I didn't say anything wrong, I just responded to ITP about the speech age thing and Neerav about the relationship between Ferb's accent and parent's accent...?

    So... I know everybody's all worked up about Ferb and Vanessa after "Chronicles of Meap", but aren't there other characters who'd be better with him?

    Well... certainly an interesting theory... I've never really thought about it, but then, I suppose you have to consider every option.

    To be honest, because of the thoughts constantly spinning through my mind, what I write, even saying "consider every option" wouldn't be going as far as I have, so reading what you two wrote just then is the funniest thing of the week so far, although ZP hasn't come out for this week…

    Considering the constant factor that they are freaking 9/10 whatever years old, I highly doubt there will be anyone for Ferb, Vanessa is a thing to show his maturity, every other pairing has nothing to support it but photoshopped screenshots and dA pictures. Ferb is just Ferb.

    I also have to agree with what Roy said. Some things are best in thier original state and ferb by himself is definitely an example of this.

    Plus it's worth mentioning that if he wasn't British, the same thing couldn't have been said.

    I mean really, you can't have an American person in the show without a love interest, it just makes them look like an angsty prick.

    As an interesting note: I can't recall Ferb ever calling anyone in the show by name, not even Phineas. Anyone else notice this?

    I'm trying to work on a fanfic where Phineas gets a sore throat, and Ferb has to do all the talking for a day. Very Happy Can you imagine?

    1. Talk about fanfics in the fanfiction thread.

    2. I have noticed that, however he did say "Candace, we are just kids." in Out to Launch.

    Anybody seen the preview for tomorrow night's episode in which Ferb is all "We do it for the ladies! Rawr!"

    Hahahaha, I can't help LOL'ing every time I see it! I think Ferb's character is beginning to grow on me. XD I can't wait to see that line used in context.
