I decided to debate imabench on a topic i was arguing with my friend the other day. I am for the claim that the show "Phineas and Ferb" is not a very factual show and that it can't happen in real life. If imabench Accepts, he will take the opposing side to my possition.
RULES: No opinions from other people are allowed only your own.

You can only use facts from the show.

Every opinion that either person says has to be supported by reasonable evidence. First round is to be acceptance (and a reason why you accepted (this is optional)

one opinion per round and as many refuttals and evidence in a single round as your heart desires :D.
(it has been brought to my attention that this is a setup for me to win 100%, this is not true since this debate is based off opinions) GOOD LUCK.

Ive watched Phineas and Ferb for a total of 15 minutes now and I have already spotted numerous things about the show that can indeed happen in real life..... I believe that Phineas and Ferb is at the very least somewhat factual due to the numerous things in the show that happen not just in real life, but in fact happens to just about everyone when they are a kid.

List of things relatable to real life that are factual that take place on the show:

1) A guy-guy friendship dominated by one of the friends who always decides what to do in their free time when the other one stays out of his way and just goes along with whatever the other wants to do, which is very common in real life

2) The guy who always goes along with it rarely speaks and when he does speak his voice sounds really weird but cool in a way, something that also happens in real life.

3) The main character has an older sister who is a real dick, always is meddling with his business, and always tattles on him to his parents, something that thousands of little siblings know happens in real life

4) The main character has a group of friends that includes
- 1 - A girl who secretly likes someone in the group and nobody has a clue about it despite how obvious it is
- 2 - A big kid who is a bit of an idiot
- 3 - A foreign guy with a noticeable accent

5) The show is centered around the idea that its the last day of Summer and they have to do the craziest thing they can in order to celebrate their last day of freedom, something that millions of kids do every year.

6) The main characters have parents who are completely oblivious to the activities the kids are up to, something that everyone has experienced at one time or another

7) The main character's sister constantly strikes out with one guy she really likes, something that is also observed frequently in real life

8) Everyone on the show at one point is subjected to moments of awkwardness in front of their peers, which is something everyone has experienced at one point, and something that will inevitably happen to everyone in the future

9) The entire day goes by in about 15 minutes which is how EVERY DAY THAT IS THE DAY BEFORE SCHOOL FEELS LIKE

10) The main characters mimic the sounds their pet makes, which is something that happens in real life very frequently

11) Old lady's are obsessed with cats, something that is so common in real life its a stereotype

12) Theres always one guy who just wants to watch the world burn but inevitably never gets to do so, something that happens in real life and frequently on DDO as well.

13) The family home is located in the suburbs within driving distance of a major city or metropolitan area....

14) They rely on an indian guy to help them with their internet problems.... Anyone who knows anything about outsourcing knows that this happens in real life

15) Everyone in highschool is obsessed with viral videos... I personally can vouch for this one.

Evidence:
Season 2 Episode 1: The Lake-nosed monster parts 1+2
Season 2 Episode 2: Interview with a Platypus, Tip of the Day

Now sure there are some parts of the show that are very implausible..... Mostly the fact that the family has a pet platypus that fights crime in its spare time and has his own massive underground headquarters just beneath the house..... But that just makes the show unrealistic, which is completely different then not very factual...... There are still many plausible and factual elements to the show that people can relate to and stuff, making the show at least somewhat relatable and factual.....

(Back to you Pro :D)
