"The Island of Lost Dakotas"

The Island of Lost Dakotas is a mysterious island somewhere in the ocean with a population made up entirely of hundreds of versions of Vinnie Dakota.

The Island

TIoLD (103)

The island is in the middle of nowhere, deep in the ocean. It features a massive, smoking volcano surrounded by thick greenery and jagged cliffs. The water around it is filled with treacherous rocks that make it impossible for a larger ship to approach.

The terrain on the island is quite dangerous, with rivers of lava and many cliffs. Part of it is covered in broken and rusted old boats.

The Village

The area where the Dakotas live is surrounded by a massive, sturdy wall of thick wood tied together with heavy rope, with the only entrance being a huge gate that opens in the center. The houses seem to be made of wood, for the most part, with metal roofs. Some are on the ground, while others are supported by the trees.

The Dakotas

There are hundreds of versions of Vinnie Dakota on the island.

Many of the Dakotas are wearing the outfits they arrived in, while others wear what is left of their tracksuits. Others still are wearing entirely new outfits, many of which are composed of leaves and other stuff found around the island. Likewise, while some keep their hair in Dakota's typical style, others have grown it out long, or have even grown out thick facial hair. They also have varying skin tones depending on how tan they've gotten.

Interestingly enough, however, every single Dakota on the island is still wearing his typical pair of shades.

Notable Versions of Vinnie Dakota

The Dakotas of the island keep themselves busy manufacturing and exporting products they make in the factories they built.


In "The Island of Lost Dakotas", a duplicate Dakota travels to the island by bus and by cargo ship after having gone back in time to save Cavendish's life. He meets many other versions of himself living there after previous rescue missions.

In "The Phineas and Ferb Effect", Cavendish, Dakota, Orton Mahlson, and Doofenshmirtz crash land on the island after pressing the emergency escape button to exit the timestream. Doofenshmirtz and Orton promptly get captured by the island Dakotas, having separated from Cavendish and Dakota.
