I write a lot for kids, and let's face it, in many kid's stories the villains aren't that "villainous". My most favorite villain is Dr. Doofenshmirtz from the kid's TV show Phineas and Ferb. I love this show, and I love Dr. D. He may want to take over the Tri-State area, but he's a hoot! His wacky inventions are always thwarted, and you can't help but feel sorry for the poor evil scientist. Here are some of my favorite quotes of his.
"Curse you Perry the Platypus!"
"Lies are the glue that holds society together."
"If I had a nickel for every time I've been doomed by a puppet, I would have two nickels. That's not a lot, but it's funny that it happened twice."
"When I was a young boy in Gimmelshtump..."
"Perry the Platypus, I'm so sorry I hurt you when I wasn't actually trying to hurt you. If you give me another chance, I promise to hurt you in the right way with cartoonish physical violence and elaborate traps constructed out of strange things I purchased over the Internet. What do you say?"
