Background InformationEdit

  • All of the songs choices are on the Phineas and Ferb Soundtrack, and as such also premiered on the 2009 Radio Disney premiere almost a month prior.
  • The logo being used is a modified version of the logo used for the Spot the Diff and Phineas and Ferb's Memorial Day Marathon.
  • The week leading up to the premiere has been titled "Phineas and Ferb Musical Cliptastic Countdown Week". The episodes broadcast during this time will be the ones featuring the songs being voted on.
  • The introduction reveals Major Monogram's first name: Francis.
  • Candace appears in the videos of all the top 10 songs except for Ain't Got Rhythm. Her voice appears in eight of the ten; all except Ain't Got Rhythm and Little Brothers.
  • Isabella's outfit keeps switching from her normal outfit to her Fireside Girls uniform during the Gitchee Gitchee Goo extended video. This is probably due to the fact that parts of the old video for the song was re-used in this extended version. Also, the background changes from "Phineas and the Ferb-Tones Reunion Concert" to "PFT".
  • When Doofenshmirtz holds up his hand to indicate the "final four", his hand is initially up with all of his fingers but his thumb. When he looks at his hand, he realizes that he's only holding up three fingers, so he adds his thumb. This is lamp shading the fact that characters in this show only have three fingers and a thumb on each hand.
  • Perry isn't in any of the clips (not including Gitchee Gitchee Goo)
  • This is the longest Monogram and Doofenshmirtz have been on screen.
  • For the Disney Channel US premiere, subtitles were shown so that the audience could sing along. This was also done during the voting period, with each song choice being shown as a separate commercial. For the Disney XD US premiere, no subtitles were displayed. A later rebroadcast on Disney Channel US did not include subtitles.
  • It is likely that the creators knew that Gitchee Gitchee Goo would win (or were expecting it would), since its position as the winning song is semi-crucial to the episode's plot. It is also possible that the writers were planning for or expecting Truck Drivin' Girl and/or the Perry the Platypus Theme to be in the top 10, since these songs were remotely referenced by the characters. It should be noted, however, that outside of Monogram singing along with Gitchee Gitchee Goo, none of the songs are referenced directly during the non-clip scenes. This was most likely the result of the creators animating these sequences first then spoiling the music videos in later, and for the dubbing in foreign countries to be compatible with any outcome.

ErrorsEdit

  • For the premiere with subtitles, the song that won eighth place, Ain't Got Rhythm, has a spelling mistake: The first "you're" in Phineas's subtitle "You're kidding me, right? You're—you're kidding me!" is misspelled as "your", making it "Your kidding me, right? You're—you're kidding me!"
  • In Gitchee Gitchee Goo, after Dr. Doofenshmirtz says " "No! Not the number 1 voted Phineas and Ferb song! New extended version, never before seen... NOT THAT!", The Ferbettes are in this order: (from left to right) Adyson, Gretchen, Milly, Isabella. However, after that, they are in reversed order.

ContinuityEdit

  • This is the second instance of Major Monogram and Dr. Doofenshmirtz working together in some fashion. The first was during the 2009 Radio Disney premiere to promote the release of the Soundtrack.
  • Doofenshmirtz says "I don't have to! I've got a monster truck!" when making no sense like Buck Buckerson from "It's a Mud, Mud, Mud, Mud World".
  • Irving makes a brief cameo in the in-between segments.
  • Doofenshmirtz tells Monogram that he can't pull off the street lingo, a running gag in "At the Car Wash".

AllusionsEdit

  • The introduction at the start of the show is similar to variety shows in the 70's and 80's.
  • Agent M on a typewriter refers to a famous expression, "A thousand monkeys typing on a thousand typewriters will eventually create Shakespeare."
  • "Say goodnight, Doofenshmirtz" is a tribute to George Burns and Gracie Allie's classic sign-off.
  • Times Square: The background in the beginning resembles Times Square in New York City.

CastEdit

SequelEdit

There is going to be a "Phineas and Ferb Musical Cliptastic Countdown 2" except with Season 2 songs instead of 1.Martin Olson, father of Olivia Olson (voice of Vanessa Doofenshmirtz), confirmed this special episode. However, he did not give away much info, so the complete list of songs votable is currently unknown. The sequel will air in Season 3.
