Baljeet Rai (Maulik Pancholy) is Phineas and Ferb's friend who helps them with their Big Ideas.
Baljeet is a kid who is perceived as always getting good grades and being bullied by Buford. He is from India. He is considered a nerd and thinks that getting an F on a math test is the scariest thing known to man ("One Good Scare Ought to Do It!"). He has moved here from India for his education. He can play the drums, and the guitar. Although it seems like his feelings make him want to do math, he actually just does a lot of math, "the feelings come and go ("The Baljeatles"). His friends have nicknamed him Jeet.
Baljeet is great at math, passive, and very polite. He enjoys trivia, learning, and has a compelling need to get good grades ("One Good Scare Ought to Do It!", "Tip of the Day", "Unfair Science Fair", "The Baljeatles"). Baljeet is also the leader of a group of science fiction fans,as he is the only sixteenth level Space Adventure Trivia Master in the world ("Nerds of a Feather"). He speaks without contractions, perhaps because of his studious background or because English is his second language.
During the group's activities, he is often paired with Buford. While Buford often bullies him by taking his underpants, there is also a protective nature between the two of them ("Get That Bigfoot Outa My Face!", "The Ballad of Badbeard"). He also learns things he never knew he could do ("Tip of the Day", "The Baljeatles", "Unfair Science Fair").

- Baljeet can sing very well. ("The Baljeatles", "Picture This", "Gaming the System" "Unfair Science Fair", "Christmas Vacation", "The Wizard of Odd")

Baljeet always gets Phineas' help when he needs help with something. ("Unfair Science Fair Redux (Another Story)", "Attack of the 50 Foot Sister", "That Sinking Feeling","The Baljeatles ")
Baljeet always gets Ferb's help, too. ("Unfair Science Fair", "Attack of the 50 Foot Sister", "That Sinking Feeling") He once stated to Phineas, "Can I borrow Ferb sometime?" ("Attack of the 50 Foot Sister")
As one of Phineas and Ferb's friends, he is automatically classified by Candace as a bother, but she has never had a direct conversation with Baljeet. However, Baljeet seems to pay more attention to Candace, stating to Phineas that she had missed the song Believe We Can before they took off on their journey together around the world ("Phineas and Ferb: Summer Belongs To You!").
Baljeet might have a crush on Isabella, as evidenced when Phineas and Ferb require two people to play a couple on a date, so they can test the machine. Baljeet says it was fate that he and Isabella were picked, while she says Baljeet charged to the dinner table like a crazed bull. Or he may, quite simply, be desperate.("What Do It Do?")
Baljeet has hinted also in ("Not Phineas and Ferb") by saying "Was I a good actor of Phineas?", implying he wanted to know how she felt about it. She replies with "No. No you weren't."
Even though Buford is the local bully who always terrorizes Baljeet, they are often seen together, especially when they are involved Phineas and Ferb's Big Ideas. They seem to have formed a like hate relationship and are considered as frenemies. Though Buford uses Baljeet as a punching bag, Buford also confides in Baljeet with some of his secrets, like that he can speak fluent French. (Phineas and Ferb: Summer Belongs to You!) Like a good frenemy, Baljeet doesn't mention this to the others, or perhaps Buford is too intimidating to him to cross.
Baljeet's childhood friend from India, and they had such a good time as young kids. She visits him in "That Sinking Feeling," during which time Baljeet is shocked to discover she has "turned into a girl." It is implied the two like each other, though Mishti seems to prefer a friendly relationship compared to Baljeet's attempts at a bit of romance, figuring that is what girls like. It seems that Baljeet has a little crush on her.
Baljeet does not know about this yet, but Ginger has a crush on him just like how Isabella has a crush on Phineas. ("Isabella and the Temple of Sap")
Baljeet seems to be friends with Wendy Stinglehopper, as they know each others names and like math. Baljeet may even have a crush on her, because he risked his life to save her present and acted shy around her. After she and Baljeet noticed the mistletoe above them, he kisses her very tenderly, leaving her surprised and says "Later", definitely confirming he likes her. ("Phineas and Ferb Christmas Vacation!")

- Baljeet's last name has not yet been revealed in any episode or any press release.
