"Where's Perry?" is a special two-part episode of Phineas and Ferb.
At the airport, Phineas, Ferb, Lawrence Fletcher, Linda Flynn-Fletcher, Isabella, Buford, Baljeet, and Perry are ready to board their plane to Africa, where they will be staying at a research station that is run by Lawrence's college friend, Ignatius Ukareamü. Betty Jo Flynn and Clyde Flynn are there to see them off. Perry receives a call from Major Monogram, telling him that Doofenshmirtz is up to something, and that he needs to miss his vacation to deal with it. To get out of the vacation, Perry pretends to be sick. Though it takes a bit of persuasion, the boys relent and sadly leave Perry home with Clyde and Betty Jo. Meanwhile, Candace is waiting at the front of the airport. Stacy Hirano calls her, and asks if she's ready to leave. Candace responds no, because Jeremy wanted to say something important to her before she left, but he hadn't arrived yet. A flight attendant next to her with a bullhorn tells her it is time to board the plane.
On the plane, Linda and Lawrence discuss their dinner plans at Chez Afrique, Buford forces Baljeet to sit in the middle, and Phineas says how Perry "would have loved sitting on the tarmac for no reason". He then sees Ferb with neck protectors around his neck, saying that Perry would have loved the visual gag. Baljeet complains to Buford that not everything can be solved with muscle. Isabella talks about the African chapter of the Fireside Girls Handbook, which features "Identifying Fauna and Flora", "Finding Water", and to her disgust, "Eating a Grub". Baljeet tries to console her by telling her she does not need every patch. She does not agree. Candace almost gets a call from Jeremy, but due to the plane about to take off, the call was cut. She then bemoans that she won't be able to use her phone during the eighteen-hour flight.
Clyde and Betty Jo tuck Perry into his bed and leave him so he can sleep. He then disguises the tissue box they left to look like him, then enters his lair. Major Monogram then tells Perry that the text he received from Doofenshmirtz didn't exactly warrant missing his vacation. He thought since the text was written in all caps, it was important, but then realized he accidentally hit caps lock. He tells Perry to check on him anyway. The Flynn-Fletcher's plane lands in Africa. Candace tries to call Jeremy, but figures out she has no international coverage. They then meet Lawrence's college friend, Ignatius, Iggy for short. He then takes them out to the research station.
Perry arrives at Doofenshmirtz Evil Inc., where Doofenshmirtz quickly gives (and foils) his scheme. When he was a child, he was flabby, which led him to create his Fitness Equipment Lock-inator. After making everyone fat, he would run to city hall and take over. He then tells Perry not to escape and not push the self-destruct button, which Doofenshmirtz does himself. Perry looks at Doof weirdly, with Doof admitting he's a loser. Perry then flies back home.
Doofenshmirtz pretends to curse Perry, then reveals that the entire plan was a fake to keep Perry away from his real -inator, the Ultimate-evil-inator. He then tells Norm his plan. He concluded that fighting underlings, such as Perry the Platypus, was a waste of his time. He decided to build the -inator so that he could have the ultimate prize on his side; Major Monogram. Believing that Monogram would then become his sidekick, Doofenshmirtz would have access to the O.W.C.A. computer network, thus assuring his domination. He knows that Monogram sunbathes on the roof every afternoon, so he aims the -inator at a satellite, which then bounces to the O.W.C.A. building. Monogram is there, examining his uvula with a mirror. He asks Carl, who was grilling, if it seemed unusually large. The beam from the -inator bounces off the mirror and hits Carl. Doofenshmirtz laughs, but only because his neighbor's cat is tearing her drapes. Since he can't see the results of his -inator, he decides to go to the Base and find out.
The Flynn-Fletchers arrive at the research station. After refueling the truck, they take a safari on the Savannah. They reach the "Uncharted Gorge", which is its name in English as well. Iggy states the only way to get down was to have a "highly unconventional vehicle". This gives Phineas the idea of what to do today. They go back to the station, where they go and do their own things. Phineas and Ferb plan to build an unconventional vehicle, and Lawrence and Linda get ready for their dinner reservation.
Doofenshmirtz arrives at the O.W.C.A., making Monogram very confused. Doofenshmirtz, believing Monogram had been hit, asks him to carry his things inside. When they get inside, they are captured by Carl, who is caressing a skull. Carl announces that he now plans to take over the Tri-State Area for himself. Doofenshmirtz then realizes that Carl was the one who was hit by his -inator. He then wonders whose skull Carl is caressing.
Isabella is being taught the Adumu, and she thanks the three demonstrators. They then thank her for teaching them the "Izzy's Got the Frizzies". She decides to return to the research center, and the people wish her luck with the "grub thing". The middle states that eating bugs is bad. The female at the end says she did not remember having to do that when she was a Fireside Girl.
Isabella then meets with Phineas and Ferb, as they are planning their "Highly Unconventional Vehicle". They are basing it off of animals, with cheetah muscle, gorilla hands, baboon adrenal glands, rhino horn, a giraffe neck, elephant trunk, and a monkey tail. Carl has imprisoned Monogram and Doofenshmirtz in a cell with a milkshake machine. After letting Doofenshmirtz out to help with "his -inators", Carl goes with Doofenshmirtz. Seeing the extra straws in the machine, Monogram gets an idea. Candace searches for a phone to call Jeremy, and she has no luck until she finds an old telephone, which has to be used in high, unobstructed areas. So, she takes it up a tree. As Doofenshmirtz shows an unimpressed Carl his -inators, Monogram calls Perry on the phone, using straws that have been stuck together. He tells Perry to come in, but only just before the straw line collapses.
Perry arrives at the O.W.C.A., and comes to the room to rescue Major Monogram. Before he can, however, he is captured by Carl, who says he left the straws on purpose so Monogram could call Perry, and get him out of the way. Carl reveals his plan; to use the O.W.C.A. supercomputer to bring the Tri-State Area to its knees. Doofenshmirtz tries to name the plan but is sent away by Carl. Angry, Doofenshmirtz accidentally hits the release button, freeing Perry. Carl then uses his Evil Flynn-Fletcher Robots to try and defeat Perry. Doofenshmirtz points out that he recognizes the Linda-bot, and remembers he once had a date with her, though he had "no idea she was a robot at the time".
Phineas vocalizes fanfare as he readies the vehicle to explore the gorge. The plan is to soar like a condor onto an outcrop, jump onto vines, and land on the bottom with cheetah-like grace. He states that doing it any other way would result in "instant death." Buford says that Phineas' plan is doable. Candace is in the top of a tree, trying to reach Jeremy. She finally gets ahold of him, but the signal is very faint. Carl orders the robots after Perry. After evading them, Perry locks the computer, forbidding Carl to be able to access it. Carl orders Doofenshmirtz to do something to stop Perry, and then Doof remembers his -inators. He then goes around the room, preparing them to fire.
Candace finally talks to Jeremy. Though faint and cutting phrases, she hears "Candace... I thought... we should... break... up." She then loses the signal. She fears that Jeremy is breaking up with her. Phineas tells Buford and Baljeet to man the legs. Baljeet tries to explain to Buford that he will see that brains will come in handy, but Buford pushes him aside, saying that it's a job for brash, unthinking muscle. He accidentally pulls too hard on the lever, causing it to break. This causes the vehicle to plummet into the gorge, with the five friends falling... possibly to their "instant death." As Doofenshmirtz turns on his -inators, Carl tells him not to use them all at once. He does not hear, and they all go off. In the center of their beams, stands Perry. Perry is hit by all of the -inators at once. In a flash, Perry is gone, and no one knows where he is. At the restaurant, Linda and Lawrence find out that they have no reservation. They gasp in horror. The first part ends with the caption, "To be continued..."
The second part opens at Chez Afrique, the mountaintop restaurant where Mom and Dad are sitting on a couch, having known they waited 30 years for their reservation to be fulfilled. The maître d' walks over and tells them that their reservation was made in the "Fletcher-Flynn" name by mistake. Relieved, they follow him in.
At the O.W.C.A. headquarters, the evil Carl Karl nags Heinz Doofenshmirtz about blasting Perry with all of his -inators at once, preventing him from being able to use Agent P's paw print to unlock the computer. Doofenshmirtz tries to figure out how Perry disappeared but admitted he was clueless, with Francis "Major" Monogram still in his jail cell. Carl uses his scientific equipment and the process of elimination, and decides that it was the Go-Home-inator that zapped the now-missing agent. Carl takes an O.W.C.A. plane and his evil robots, scanning each with a metal detector. While scanning the evil Lawrence robot, a pineapple gets no response, and Carl rejects it as the plane heads for the Flynn-Fletcher house. As Carl left, Doofenshmirtz laughs about Monogram about Carl calling him "Mono-grampa". Monogram tells hims that he was just using him and Doofenshmirtz won't believe it when Monogram point out that he was left behind.
Back in Africa, Candace is hanging by the top of a high tree holding an old-fashioned radio telephone, believing that Jeremy were broke up with her. Suddenly, the top bough breaks, and she falls down crashing into branches until she hits the ground. She checks on a monkey she met to see if it was okay, but is crying about losing her boyfriend, among other things, and decides after she says that she's out, peace, go native and runs away with her new primate pal.
At the same time, high on a cliff, Phineas, Ferb, Baljeet, Buford and Isabella are now holding on to some jungle vines. Isabella, Buford, and Baljeet are panicking, asking Phineas for help. Phineas sees his Perry beneath them and says that they need to get down. Suddenly, the vines begin to break and Phineas swings around, grabbing Ferb, Isabella, and Baljeet, but leaving Buford falling accidentally. Baljeet tosses another vine at Buford, who grabs it and they climb down to where Perry and their Highly Unconventional Vehicle were.
Meanwhile, in Danville, Carl and the Flynn-Fletcher robots break into the Flynn-Fletcher house while Grandpa Clyde is asleep on a chair. As the robots start scanning the house for Perry, the Candace robot walks into her doppelgänger's room and looks at a picture of Jeremy. The answering machine on the phone delivers a message from Jeremy and he is about to say what he was trying to tell Candace before. Carl was frustration realizing Perry is not there.
Isabella, Buford, and Baljeet start to think how can Perry be in Africa, but Phineas tells them that he saw him and decides to find Perry, as Ferb, Isabella, Buford, and Baljeet follows him. Perry sees them while hiding in the bushes but gets a message on his watch. Carl, who notices some rare flowers in the bush near Perry. As soon as Perry realizes it will give away his location, he rips off the watch. Carl then identifies the flower using his equipment and finds out it is only found in uncharted regions in Africa. He takes the robots to the plane, and they take off for the location for Carl gloating that once he gets the paw print of Perry, he can take over the O.W.C.A then the Tri-State Area with extra credit.
Back at the O.W.C.A., Doofenshmirtz is saddened that Carl used and abandoned him. Major Monogram snaps him out of it, and tells him they have to stop Carl and save Agent P. Doofenshmirtz tells him that with Perry out of the way, he can finally take over the Tri-State area. Major Monogram tells him that Carl will take over it first, and Doofenshmirtz slowly realizes it and screams. He decides to take out the key and free Major Monogram. They take Major Monogram's spare jet and use a GPS tracker to fly to Africa and stop Carl.
As for Candace, she's sad with everything left behind but is happy to live with monkeys, even though it's a little strange. She starts to get used to live with them, and at the end, she talks about the sunset in monkey language, while one of the monkeys says he's seen better.
Back to Phineas and the gang. Phineas is still tracking down Perry's footprints, but Isabella says they should head back. Phineas is upset and does not want to stop looking for Perry, as he's more than just a pet: a friend. Baljeet reminds him that they are in Africa but Ferb tells that Phineas has even been wrong before. Phineas sees Perry's footprints, and starts tracking him down again. Buford believes it's just a duck, though. Perry runs off, but he is stopped by a bunch of wild animals that surround him.
Carl finally arrives in Africa and ordered his robots to start tracking down Perry. Monogram and Doofenshmirtz on their way to Carl, Doofenshmirtz starts building a new -inator by using the parts in the plane that causes a short malfunction on the plane and if there are any lifeboats that Monogram reminds him that are on a plane. Carl sees the kids and decides to follow them to get to Perry. The Candace robot continues it search for Perry but finds her doppelgänger acting like a primitive monkey and wears a jungle outfit. When the robot Candace says "Candace loves Jeremy", Candace runs away.
Meanwhile, Buford and Baljeet are stilling arguing around brains and brawn is better to survive in Africa while tracking Perry. Phineas lost his tracks and Isabella sees some grubs since Perry's favorite food while mentioning Ferb likes haggis and Isabella wonders how can she get her Grub Eating Patch. Phineas sees Perry's fur that sees heading that direction and continues to track him. Monogram tries to maintain control of the plane since Doofenshmirtz taking important part to build the Re-Good-inator and worries that might crash land the plane.
The kids follow Perry to a river, and sees Perry on the other side and run toward a cave. The kids follow him by crossing the log over the river but Carl ordered the robot Lawrence to fire the log that the kid falls into the river, and Perry returns when he heard their scream. Carl appears and tells that did it to lure him out and he was evil. Perry sees Carl made more robot versions of Vanessa, Monogram, Doofenshmirtz, Norm, Buford, Isabella, Baljeet, Clyde and Irving that he had free time to make them. Perry then whistles to call a bunch of wild animals and now wearing fedoras that Perry made them new recruits. Carl ordered all of his robots to attack while Perry and the rest of the animals charge into battle.
Meanwhile, the kids still floating in the river and swims toward the rapids. Phineas tells them to get behind him to slide toward a branch and then catapults them out of the water and landed on a quicksand that Baljeet states that was it was lucky that it cushioned their fall.
During the fight, Perry sees Monogram and Doofenshmirtz crash-landed their plane in the middle of the fight. Doofenshmirtz tells Monogram they survived the crash and one day looks back at this moment but Monogram tells him that one day he will drive to his house and punch him. Candace saves a fellow monkey in danger and also joins with the animals in the fight. Monogram ask Doofenshmirtz if the Re-Good-inator was ready but Doofenshmirtz tells him that he still needs more parts that Monogram joins the fight and rips some parts of the robots to help Doofenshmirtz finishing building it.
Candace still fighting the robots until the robot Phineas has her in the corner and was about to blast her but the robot Candace sacrifice herself to save Candace and destroys the robot Phineas. Candace asks why her robot doppelgänger saved that the robot reply that she didn't have a robot Jeremy and played the recorded message from Jeremy. It reveals that Jeremy tries to call her but the signal keeps breaking up. He also apologizes for not getting to the airport and got caught up with his band for making a new song just for her and waiting to call from her and misses her too. Candace realizes that Jeremy didn't break up with her and the robot doppelgänger tells her to call him and gives her a new cellphone before shutting down. Candace thanks her robot doppelgänger and calls Jeremy and apologize to Jeremy that she tries calling him from a tree to get some cell service.
Phineas asks if Isabella she knows who to get out for a quicksand in the Fireside Girls manual that Isabella flatly tells him that she knows if she sees it. Buford calls them that he's on a ledge that he should come down that Baljeet tells him not to but to throw a vine. Buford was about to the whole vine but Baljeet tells him to throw one end of the vine, that he wonders if he's wrong or it was Buford. Phineas tells Buford to put but Buford was pulling something else that Phineas tells him to pull the vine and tells Baljeet it's Buford. As Buford them up, Baljeet's pants fell down due to the quicksand that Buford tells him he was going to do to him later when they leave the place.
Meanwhile, Doofenshmirtz almost finishes the -inator but needs a small piece of tape and finds one by taking the mustache of the robot Monogram while fighting his doppelgänger. Monogram tells Doofenshmirtz to fight it to Carl but has a problem that the -inator is mounted to the ship and can't turn it and was pointed to an x-shaped rock. Monogram tells Perry to lure Carl to the x-shaped rock to get him shot by the Re-Good-inator and admitting he wears a leotard under his uniform. Perry manages to lure Carl by showing his paw that he wanted for the codes. Carl follows him x-shaped rock to the x-shaped rock but Carl sees through to the plan and stops pulling Perry. Perry tells Doofenshmirtz to fire but Monogram stays it's out of range. When Doofenshmirtz fires Re-Good-Inator that Perry uses a picture frame of Phineas and Ferb to reflect the ray and hits Carl.
Monogram checks up on Carl and sees that he's back to being good. Monogram was happy and then ordered Carl to clean up the robot parts, then Monogram tells him that he was a great help to him that he decided to promote him to paid interim even though he will never get paid and it's just the title. Monogram then congratulate Perry and tells him to join him back to the plane to leave but hears Phineas calling for Perry. Monogram decides to let him go and have earned it that Perry quickly goes to them. Monogram tells Carl that they should leave immediately and use the giant magnet on the plane to put up all the destroys parts of the robots and Doofenshmirtz asks if he can get a ride back home with them that Monogram allows him but might end up in prison that Doofenshmirtz thinks he's joking.
As the kids climb up the mountain, they see Perry and was happy to finally found him and sees Candace still wearing her jungle outfit that Phineas thinks she embraces Africa and wonders how they gonna go back that Candace handles it by making a Tarzan-like call that summons two elephants and Perry tells one of the elephants to take off his fedora. The kids and Candace rides the elephant and starts heading back to the campsite. Meanwhile, Carl wonders why Perry ended up in Africa since he was hit by the Go-Home-inator that Monogram tells him that home is where the heart is and that his heart is to be with his family. They later felt a small shock in the plane that Monogram tells Doofenshmirtz to not touch anything but he tells them that he didn't.
At the campsite, the Flynn-Fletcher and their friends see the sunset and find Africa amazing. Phineas asks his parents about what happened in the Chez Afrique that they state nothing special had happened there. Baljeet tells Buford that it takes brains and brawn to survive in Africa that Buford agrees and takes his s'more. Isabella asks what in the s'more that Ignatius tells her that he adds his secret ingredient: grubs. Isabella was happy to able to eat grubs and thank Africa. Phineas asks Ignatius if he can have some grubs for Perry that Ignatius never studied a platypus before finds it interesting that Perry manages to follows them all the way from Africa. Ferb states that even George Shaw wrote the description of the platypus, and that platypus is a unique creature has become synonymous with the word "impossible". Candace was surprised that they all satisfied with that answer. As everyone decides to go to bed, leaving Candace telling them that how a platypus crosses the Atlantic Ocean and ended up in a vast continent of Africa and never wonders to have a longer discussion. Phineas and Buford tells her to go to sleep and will make sense tomorrow and Candace still laments that no one is with her in this discussion.

- The gate number the Flynn-Fletchers depart from switches between C29 on the outside, and 32B on the inside.
- When the Flynn-Fletchers are in the airport and on the plane, the sky changed colors.
- There are currently no Flights into Jomo Kenyatta International Airport that are eighteen hours in length.
- When Isabella is wearing her sash, the diamond patch is orange instead of teal, like in "The Great Indoors". Also, at the same time at one point, the highlights in her hair are gone.
- When Buford and Baljeet are complaining about who sits in the middle seat, Isabella's bow has another "beak" and her sash has no patches on it.
- Doofenshmirtz should have known about Carl being employed by the O.W.C.A., he has even referred to Carl as "the intern".
- Perry was on the other side of a cliff from Carl when the kids fell into the water, but seconds later Carl and all the robots are on the same side as Perry.
- After being turned good again, Carl stands up next to a piece of a robot arm. It's colored white, but when Carl picks it up its colored like Monogram's uniform. This is two errors, one being the color switch and two that Robot Monogram was shut off intact.
- When Perry hugs the photo after the battle, it is flipped.
- Ring-tailed lemurs were one of the creatures encountered by Perry in Africa. However, these species are only found in Madagascar.
- Major Monogram is not wearing a leotard as he stated, he was wearing a unitard because of the fact that it had long legs.
- Candace and the blonde girl arriving in Africa in the baggage receiver may be an allusion to a scene to the movie Airplane!, where many people are seen arriving in the bag area in a similar fashion.
- Major Monogram's mournful utterance of the phrase "Game over, man" when it appears that Carl has moved out of range of the Re-Good-Inator recalls Private Hudson using the same line in Aliens after the dropship has crashed, and the survivors of the first battle are stranded without hope of a quick rescue.
- When Buford is raising the sun, it reflects the beginning of The Lion King. Additionally, "On the Savannah" sounds a bit like the song "Circle of Life".
- Doofenshmirtz mentions a Deresinator which is a reference to Tron in which the phrase "derez" is used to describe the deresolution of a program.
