Toon Tunes: Isabella (Phineas and Ferb)

words & mix: Sabrina Cofer

Known for her pink bow and “What’cha Doin’?” catchphrase on Phineas and Ferb, Isabella Garcia-Shapiro is one of the most famous characters living in the Flynn-Fletcher neighborhood. Although best remembered for her heart-breaking and mostly one-sided crush on Phineas, she is also an independent leader and strong counterpart to the orange-haired inventor. As troop leader of the Fireside Girls, she is their commander, confidant, and most importantly, friend who successfully guides them through all of the boys’ creations. Although some criticize her intense crush (obsession) on Phineas, through their bond she is able to show off some of her best qualities of loyalty, strength, support, optimism, and emotional depth. Here are a list of songs that celebrate the two brightest notes of Isabella: Intense emotion and grounded strength.
