The Goozim is a hostile monster that appears in the Disney Channel hit series, Phineas and Ferb. It is a large, hairy brown monster that is known to resided in Drusselstein. It would later appear as the quaternary antagonist in the 2011 TV film, Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension.
It was voiced by Dee Bradley Baker, who also voiced Perry the Platyborg.
RoleIn the TV film, the Goozim appears as 2nd Dimension Heinz Doofenshmirtz's pet and executioner. It was used to execute most, if not all, of the 2nd Doofenshmirtz family's enemies, and it appears that 2nd Doofenshmirtz only uses the Goozim to execute his enemies to entertain himself. He also plays a game similar towards poking the Goozim with a stick, with several differences: the game occurs while surrounded by a hot lake of lava and it requires several Norm-Bots to poke it with multiple spears.
In the film, 2nd Doofenshmirtz attempts to have Phineas, Ferb, Perry, Candace, and even the original Heinz Doofenshmirtz to be fed to his Goozim, but was foiled by the arriving 2nd Candace, who tossed in a remote (that can open a new portal to another dimension) to Phineas before she was caught by several Norm-Bots. As a result, the five fall through a portal to another dimension, and the Goozim follows along, losing its limbs and much of its fur to the lava in the process. Though the Goozim survived the drop, it weakly scatters away from the five in fear after looking in its current state, never to be seen again.
- They are dangerous, but capturable. They are also used as a game where one is locked up and a Drusselsteinian pokes it with a stick. Whoever has the bravery to poke the Goozim earns a prize.
- It is possible that while Goozims look extremely tough, they are either are incredibly stupid or incredibly weak as one can't escape a wooden cage.
- However, in the alternate dimension, it is likely that the Goozim appears to be a lot more stronger, dangerous, and destructive, as it was locked inside an iron cage as opposed to a wooden cage.
- It is also possible that the Goozim is a reference towards the Looney Toons monster, Gossamer.
