(Organization Without a Cool Acronym) to get a mission briefing from his boss, Major Francis Monogram. After the briefing, Perry leaves and heads to Doofenshmirtz Evil Inc, where his assigned nemesis, Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz, lives and works. When he comes in, he is somehow trapped by the evil Dr. D. Then Dr. D tells Perry his plan to try to take over the Tri-State Area, almost always using a device ending with Inator. Later Perry escapes Dr. D's trap and stops the man before his scheme works. Sometimes, though, before Perry destroys Dr. D's machine, the Inator shoots out a beam that somehow causes Phineas & Ferb's inventions to disappear. After foiling Dr. D's plans for the day, he takes off his fedora and sneaks back to the Flynn-Fletcher household. When he sees him, Phineas usually says, "Oh, there you are Perry."

Not wanting his two best friends to be hurt, he sneaks off again and turns himself in.

Role in Take Two with Phineas and FerbEdit
Perry doesn't appear much in Take Two, but when he does, he usually walks past the screen and chartles.
As Agent PEditTo become the secret agent Agent P, Perry puts on his fedora and stands up on his hind legs, like a human does. As a secret agent, it's Agent P's job to foil the evil Dr. Doofenshmirtz's plans. But Agent P can never reveal to people like his owners that an innocent platypus can become a stealthy secret agent, so he always tries not to draw attention to himself when he becomes Agent P.
- While talking about the film, Dee Bradley Baker said he was selling a step-by-step instruction video on how to do Perry's chartle. He was probally joking, though.
