Baljeet Tjinder is a character from the Disney Channel animated series Phineas and Ferb. He is a timid yet intelligent Indian friend of Phineas Flynn and Ferb Fletcher who frequently takes part in their big ideas. He enjoys learning, and he has a compelling need to get good grades, to the point that he believes failing a math test is the scariest thing in the world.
Appearances in Christmas specials
In the series' second Christmas episode, "A Phineas and Ferb Family Christmas" (which actually takes place first chronologically), Baljeet sings "Good King Wenceslas" along with Buford Van Stomm. Later, he and the rest of the cast sing "We Wish You a Merry Christmas".
In Phineas and Ferb Christmas Vacation! (which was made first but takes place later in the series' chronology), Baljeet helps his pals decorate the city of Danville as a giant thank-you card to Santa Claus. He confides to Buford that what he wants most for Christmas is a kiss under the mistletoe from a pretty girl and is devastated when they learn that Santa is not coming to Danville. Later, as Phineas, Ferb, and their friends take on the duty of delivering Santa Claus's presents to everyone in Danville, Baljeet is given the task of loading the presents into the gift-shooter. During the trip, a present for Wendy Stinglehopper, one of Baljeet's classmates in the school's math team, gets stuck in the gift-shooter. When Baljeet attempts to free the present, he ends up getting shot out along with it, but luckily goes down Wendy's chimney safely. Upon seeing Baljeet having brought her present (a really big hat), Wendy gives Baljeet the kiss under the mistletoe that he wanted, and he responds by giving her a kiss as well.
