|~ The Tower being rude to Phineas and Ferb.|
The Tower is the main antagonist of the Phineas and Ferb episode "Escape from Phineas Tower". It is a giant computer-controlled escape tower created by Phineas and Ferb until it rebelled against them (due to being hit by a Rude-inator created by Heinz Doofenshmirtz).
It was voiced by Malcolm McDowell, who also played Alex in A Clockwork Orange, Caligula in the 1979 film Caligula, Colonel F. E. Cochrane in the 1983 film Blue Thunder, Lord Maliss in the 1990 animated fantasy film Happily Ever After, Tolian Soran in the 1994 film Star Trek: Generations, Kesslee in the 1995 film Tank Girl, Gangster in the 2000 film Gangster No. 1, Marcus Kane in the 2008 film Doomsday, the Shaman in Disney's Aladdin TV series, Sinclair in the 2012 film Home Alone: The Holiday Heist and Geoffrey Tolwyn in the third and forth Wing Commander videogames.
Phineas and Ferb built the Tower in order to create the most complicated traps for them to overcome for fun. Phineas also informed that the Tower is designed to improve its intelligence as it learns every move anyone makes.
At first, the Tower compliments the boys for their strategic moves during the course of the episode, but it was not until Doofenshmirtz accidentally fired his Rude-inator, and the beam hits the Tower, who starts to become more rebellious. To that end, the Tower starts putting the boys in a log-splitting machine, to which they managed to evade before realizing that the Tower has become extremely rude in general.
Phineas and Ferb continue to struggle through different rooms inside the Tower, which have become more dangerous than ever. Eventually, they manage to dig themselves out from the Tower before reuniting with Isabella, Baljeet and Buford. Unfortunately, the Tower declares that he's not done with them yet and traps Phineas and Ferb with a dome.
Despite their friends' attempts to free Phineas and Ferb, the dome is too strong to break, and the Tower decides to cut off their oxygen and trap their friends to raise the stakes. Phineas and Ferb suddenly get an idea: they trick the Tower into expanding itself as they have multiple friends around the galaxy. This prompted the Tower to escape from Earth and expand the dome around the galaxy. Ironically, this action managed to stop an imminent alien armada from invading the galaxy, and the kids decided to live with it as they do not have to worry about dealing with the Tower anymore.
