Bradley tends to have a negative attitude towards nearly everything, but it's especially evident anytime he's around Milo. He complains about Milo's very presence anytime he's forced to share a space with him, and he often attempts to persuade Melissa to spend time with him instead of hanging out around Milo.
He loves attention and occasionally tries to earn it by sharing his knowledge with his classmates, telling them random facts and scientific tidbits. He can be rather dramatic when it comes to complaining and has shown himself to be incredibly emotional upon losing something important to him.
It is revealed that Bradley has a somewhat malicious streak, as shown when he deliberately teased a giraffe by offering it carrots and then smirking as he pulled them away again and again.
Bradley is a fair-skinned teenage boy with dark eyes and jet black hair with bangs that parted to one side. He's often seen with an annoyed expression.
He wears a pair of nearly rimless glasses and a gray shirt with thin white plaid lines and white cuffs that end at his elbows. His shirt has two pockets set symmetrically on the front and a downturned collar. Bradley wears a pair of dark gray jeans with visible seams and lighter colored cuffs, and his sneakers are a dark gray, with lighter colored soles and laces. He also owns a burgundy colored bookbag.
As of "The Phineas and Ferb Effect", his right arm has become a brown vine. This is a paradoxical leftover from the second Pistachion Takeover, as he had been turned into a Pistachion before the takeover had been averted.
In first grade, Bradley had short black hair with straight-cut bangs, with a single tuft of hair sticking up at the back of his head. His front teeth stuck out, and he wore a pair of glasses identical to his current pair. Bradley wore a short-sleeved grey t-shirt with a downturned collar and a thin white grid pattern.
He wore a pair of dark grey shorts with notable seems on the sides and a pair of grey sneakers with lighter grey soles and laces over high white socks. Bradley had a red backpack with black straps.
As a young child in first grade, Bradley went to John P. Trystate Elementary school alongside Milo, Melissa, Amanda, Mort, and Chad. He was thrilled to begin his first day of school as he went to the bus stop for the first time. Upon arriving, however, he watched the bus rocket past. Horrified, Bradley had asked Milo and Melissa what happened to the bus, with Milo simply responding 'Murphy's Law!' while Melissa introduced him as Milo Murphy.
In response to this setback, Bradley immediately comes to dislike Milo and growls 'Ooooh, Milo Murphy'. He does so once more after arriving at the school just behind Milo, only to find himself locked out.
In "The Undergrounders", he lectures the class on the way to the museum and is excited when Milo disappears, as he is ignored whenever Milo is around. He is stuck in a stegosaurus rib cage when Milo does arrive.
In "Rooting for the Enemy", he tries to sit near Melissa but is detoured by Milo. He and everyone else move away from Milo when he comes to the football game. He bluntly states Milo is the reason their team is losing but is surprised when he caused their team to score by cheering for the opposing team.
In "Sunny Side Up", he works with Mort and Amanda on their science project. He names his team, Team Melissa in an attempt to get her to join them, much to his teammates' annoyance. He arrogantly proclaims victory when his team's egg only gets a hairline fracture.
In "We're Going to the Zoo", he is seen tantalizing a giraffe with carrots before a set of monkeys ride off on them, knocking him off the platform truck he was on.
In "Some Like it Yacht", he warns the faculty about Milo being on a boat. He later becomes entranced by an ice cream machine he names "Carla" and becomes distraught over its destruction.
In "World Without Milo", he is seen crossing the street to school. In the alternate timeline, he is dressed up as Milo by Elliot, much to his annoyance.
In "The Phineas and Ferb Effect", Bradley is one of the first victims alongside Irving of Derek's M.U.L.C.H. machine, which transforms humans into Pistachions. He and the other characters that had been turned into merciless Pistachions chase Milo and the remaining survivors onto a rollercoaster. Heinz's future self, Professor Time, reaches the remaining humans just in time to pick up Orton and defeat Derek in 1955, which turns everything back to normal, aside from Bradley's right arm, which has remained a Pistachion vine.
In "Snow Way Out", he makes a wager with Melissa to see if Zack and Milo make it to school on time with the loser shoveling out the winner's driveway. While he initially wins the bet, he loses when the two arrive on time via time travel.
In "Pace Makes Waste", he hands out rotten produce to spectaculars to throw at Zack and Melissa for their bad announcing.
In "Milo's Shadow", he is seen by a water fountain and sharpening a pencil near a mirror that reads "What a cute kid".
In "Dog Walker, Runner, Screamer", he and Chad are reprimanded by Elliot for throwing a football. Later that day, the two play catch with a baseball and Bradley throws the ball too hard when Chad mentions Milo.
In "Milo's World", when everyone is talking about Milo be states that he can control Murphy's Law and uses it to intentionally cause problems so he can fix them, all so he can look like a hero. He is also bitter about his vine arm.
In "Ride Along Little Doggie", He got jealous when Chad won 'Greenest Thumb' at the Winter Break Awards, feeling he's entitled to the award since having a literal plant for an arm is close to an actual green thumb as you can get.
In “The Speech and Debate League of Death and Destruction Cross Town Explosion Event”, he and Lydia participate on Melissa's team for The Speech and Debate League of Death and Destruction Cross Town Explosion Event. However, he and Lydia end up in the hospital after Murphy's law gets them and Zack and Milo take their place.
Milo Murphy (Frenemies/Rivals)
- Main article: Bradley and Milo's Relationship
Bradley can't stand Milo and goes out of his way to avoid him as dramatically as possible, often complaining about his proximity and berating him over every mishap. On top of this, Bradley is envious of the attention Milo receives for his condition and has claimed on a field trip that he was having his 'best day ever' until Milo inevitably returned. In spite of this, Bradley can be seen dancing to 'Just Getting Started' during a school dance. Bradley even says that Milo is a supervillain.
Melissa Chase (Frenemies)
Bradley is friendlier to Melissa then he acts towards any other student, often asking her to sit with him or join his group for projects. His disdain for Milo, however, leads him to avoid spending time around her, too, even though she's open to his friendship. He appears to have slight feelings for her, although he tries to play it cool - such as naming his team 'Team Melissa', only to claim it was named after a different Melissa. He was all too happy to make a bet with her that Milo wouldn't make it to school.
Mort Schaeffer (Best Friend)
Bradley seems to be on friendly terms with Mort and hangs out with him on more than one occasion. They worked on the same group project alongside Amanda, although Bradley pointed at Mort alongside the other students when mocking them for losing despite being on the same team. He often disregards Mort's beliefs, arguing against him about Pluto being a planet and questioning him over whether he really needs to collect so much rose quartz.
Amanda Lopez (Close Friend)
Bradley is classmates with Amanda and the two tend to sit together on occasion. They worked on a group project with Mort and were the most successful team just under Milo's group. When Amanda warned their substitute that she should take a step back because of Murphy's Law, Bradley reinforced her words, saying she should step back all the way to Canada.
Chad Van Coff (Good Friend)
Bradley and Chad are classmates. They often stand together at the bus stop when waiting for the school bus, and the two of them briefly played football together before Elliot confiscated the ball. They were later seen playing baseball instead. Bradley was caught off guard upon finding out that Chad had received a text from Milo, and accidentally threw the ball too far, much to Chad's annoyance.
He got jealous over Chad winning 'Greenest Thumb' at the Winter Break Awards, feeling he's entitled to the award since having a plant for an arm is as close to an actual green thumb as you can get.
Bradley is acquainted with Elliot, who is the school's crossing guard. He asked Elliot to fix a drinking fountain in the middle school and then went on to compliment his wordplay after he declined. In an alternate timeline, Elliot paid Bradley five dollars to dress up like Milo and act out a script. Bradley seemed annoyed at this, but he went along with it anyway, only drawing the line when Elliot tried to change his hairstyle.
He got annoyed when Elliot scolded him for playing football with Chad, and questioned his logic after he complained that they were going to hurt somebody with the ball.
The moment Bradley met the ice cream machine he became immensely affectionate towards 'her', promptly giving her a name and spending the rest of his time in her presence. He was devastated by her destruction and sat on the floor bawling as Mort hosed the ice cream off of him. This continued on to the end of the trip, where Melissa scolded him for crying and pointed out that there was a guy selling ice cream right on the beach, to which he responded that it wasn't the same.

“Sure you say that now, but then one geyser comes through the floor and suddenly Milo's the center of attention.”
“The one Milo free zone, ruined.”
“Who would have guessed that the game would be ruined. Color me surprised. Hmm. What's the one thing that's different at this game?”
“Yeah! In your face, other people!”
“Too slow! Too slow!”
“Hello, beautiful. I'm Bradley. What's your name? No, no. Let me guess. It's Carla, isn't it? Yes. I'm gonna call you Carla.”
“Oh no. I spilled my marbles all over the ground.”
