In The Undergrounders he is jealous of Milo and the attention he gets. He also appears to have a slight crush on Melissa, though he attempts to play it cool.

Milo Murphy's Law

"Going the Extra Milo"

When Milo appears, Bradley and his classmates step away from him, but Zack stays where he is, unaware of Milo being jinxed. Bradley along with his classmates and Melissa Chase go onto the school bus whilst Milo and Zack are chased by a runaway concrete pipe.

During the bus journey to school, Melissa makes bets with Bradley and the other students on if Milo and Zack will make it to school before the bell rings. When they arrive in class, Bradley believes that he will win the bet as the bell is about to ring and Milo and Zack are nowhere to be seen. However, Milo and Zack, having been earlier captured by aliens, are beamed down into class just as the bell rings, much to the shock of Bradley.

On the day of the experiment, Bradley drops his egg container and the egg only gets a scratch, making Bradley the first winner.

Milo Murphy

Melissa Chase

Bradley seems to question why Melissa is friends with Milo. He also seems to have a slight crush on Melissa, but tries to play it cool.


  • Bradley is voiced by Vincent Martella, who previously voiced Phineas Flynn in Phineas and Ferb. Coincidentally, both Phineas and Ferb and Milo Murphy's Law take place in the same universe.
    • Ironically, Bradley is the opposite of Phineas - while Phineas is an optimist, Bradley is more of a pessimist.
  • In a promo on Disney XD Africa's YouTube channel, it states that Bradley feels he is the perfect soulmate for Melissa.
  • Despite his cold attitude toward Milo, he was seen dancing to him and his band in School Dance.
  • Much like Elliot Decker, his antagonistic relationship with Milo is one-sided on his part.
  • In early concepts, Bradley would have served as the total antithesis of Milo. While Milo was unlucky, but happy all the time, Bradley was going to be incredibly lucky, but miserable about it.
