Throughout the escapades, they're accompanied by Perry the Platypus, their seemingly mindless family pet who, unbeknownst to all, leads a double life as suave secret Agent P, deftly battling the evil Dr. Doofenshmirtz to save the world. Meanwhile, older sister Candace is aghast at her brothers' bold antics and makes it her life's work to tattle on them to Mom and Dad.

Together they experience the typical life challenges and triumphs, including friendship, dating and sports, along with more atypical situations such as giant lobster attacks and, with the use of special land suits, school field trips to the hamster cages.
