* Isabella's clothing is a very interesting Shout Out. Her clothing is reminiscent of another animated love interest, ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'''s Helga G. Pataki. In addition, both characters keep their emotions hidden from the main character.
* The time machine the kids use comes from the [[Film/TheTimeMachine1960 George Pal's 'The Time Machine' movie]].
* The Paisley Sideburn Brothers are a possible combination of this and a TakeThat to [[Music/TheJonasBrothers Disney's well known boy band.]]
* Aloyse Everheart Elizabeth Otto Wolfgang Hypatia Gunther Galen Gary Cooper von Roddenstein... [[Film/TheProducers Is he descended from a long line of British kveens?]]
* Danville was also the name of Rob Petrie's hometown in ''Series/TheDickVanDykeShow.''


[[folder:Season One]]
* A paraphrase of UsefulNotes/WinstonChurchill:
-->'''Phineas:''' ...and boredom is something up with which I will not put.

[[AC:Lawn Gnome Beach Party of Terror]]
* The bird flying flying past the sun and then [[IncendiaryExponent bursting into flames]] at the beginning ''might'' be a reference to the ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' episode "Brian, Portrait of a Dog".
* There's a quote from [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid "Under the Sea"]].

[[AC:Flop Starz]]
* Lindana is an apparent copy of Music/CyndiLauper.

[[AC:The Fast and the Phineas]]
* The boys' race car from "The Fast and the Phineas" is numbered with [[Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy 42]].
* Just as the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xknWZIAzBCc Doofenshmirtz blimp crashes into the broadcasting tower]] at the racetrack, the announcer gets cut off as he starts saying (presumably) [[http://youtu.be/F54rqDh2mWA "Oh, the humanity!", à la the Hindenburg disaster]].

[[AC:Lights, Candace, Action!]]

[[AC:Raging Bully]]
* It's possible that the A plot's resolution was a shout out to ''Dianey/LiloAndStitch''. To recap, Doof is holding an ice cream cone, Perry uses a [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext whale whistle to summon a whale, which somehow leaps up into the air, over the two]]. The most notable thing that the whale hits is the top of the ice cream cone that Doofenshmirtz was holding, which falls through the air and, eventually, lands on Phineas's head. There's a recurring character in ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'' who always loses his ice cream in a similar manner-- once even having it knocked down by the tip of a spaceship's wing, which is the most like this scenario.
* In fact, the title of the episode is a reference to the movie ''Film/RagingBull'', which is about a boxer. The fact that the climactic battle is a thumb war that takes place in mini boxing ring is a testament to this.

[[AC:Candace Loses Her Head]]

[[AC:I, Brobot]]
* The title is a reference to ''Film/IRobot''.
* The song "Phindroids and Ferbots" seems to be inspired by a [[Music/{{Kraftwerk}} certain German band which also features robots in their songs]].

[[AC:Run Away Runway]]
* The [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Triforce]] can be spotted in Doof's lair

[[AC:The Magnificent Few]]
* Perry has to swim past [[Film/AustinPowers a shark with a]] [[FrickinLaserBeams frickin' laser beam]] to get to his lair.
* The western-themed episode's title is also a possible reference to ''[[Film/TheMagnificentSeven1960 The Magnificent Seven]].''


[[AC:Jerk De Soleil]]
* Baljeet's magic words to "heal" his thumb are [[Film/CoolRunnings "Feel the rhythm, feel the rhyme, come on thumb, it's healing time!"]].
* Candace's song "E.V.I.L B.O.Y.S" - singing about her current predicament with a blues band - is VERY similar to what Chris Parker does in ''Film/AdventuresInBabysitting''.
* The title, as well as the circus group ''Cirque du Lune'' [[note]]lit. "Circus of the Moon"[[/note]] is a play on Creator/CirqueDuSoleil.

[[AC:Are You My Mummy?]]
* The titles "Are You My Mummy?" could possibly be a shout-out to the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episodes "The Empty Child"/"The Doctor Dances"

[[AC:Ready for the Bettys]]

[[AC:I Scream, You Scream]]
* Title is a reference to a well-known slogan of a certain ice cream brand.

[[AC:Toy to the World]]
* During one of the board meetings, there's a blink (or... stop-listening) and you'll miss it reference to ''Series/TheFastShow'' when one of the execs says [[CatchPhrase "suit you, sir!"]]
** The name is also a shout out to a famous Christmas carol.

[[AC:Get That Bigfoot Outta My Face!]]

[[AC:It's a Mud, Mud, Mud, Mud World]]
* The title is a reference to ''Film/ItsAMadMadMadMadWorld''.

[[AC:Mom's Birthday]]

[[AC:Journey to the Center of Candace]]
* Title is a reference to ''Literature/JourneyToTheCenterOfTheEarth''.

[[AC:It's About Time!]]
* This being an episode with dinosaurs, there are several ''Film/JurassicPark'' references. For example, when the kids first encounter the ''TyrannosaurusRex'', Phineas promptly tells everyone to stand still so the dinosaur won't notice them. Later on, they all encounter a group of sauropods in a swamp as a theme vaguely reminiscent of the film's main title plays in the background. Lastly, a non-Jp reference happens at the end, when Candace is chased by the Rex in the museum, the Leitmotif of Grumpy the ''Tyrannosaurus'' from the original ''Film/LandOfTheLost'' is heard.
* When Perry is replaced by a panda named Peter the Panda, there's a song called "Missing My Nemesis" that sounds and has similar clips to "And She Loved Me" from ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory2''.

[[AC:Dude, We're Getting the Band Back Together]]

[[AC:Tree to Get Ready]]
* Doofenshmirtz's song includes the line [[Film/AnimalHouse "Thank you, sir, I'll have another!"]]

[[AC:The Ballad of Badbeard]]

[[AC:Greece Lightning]]
* You can see [[Disney/{{Hercules}} the Muses]] on the vase Perry is hiding behind.
** Say the name of the episode. [[Film/{{Grease}} Then say it again. And again.]]

[[AC:Leave the Busting to Us!]]
* The tattoos on the TV show lady's hands, and her monologue with them, is very reminiscent of a scene in ''Film/TheNightOfTheHunter''.

[[AC:Crack That Whip]]

[[AC:The Best Lazy Day Ever]]

[[AC:Boyfriend From 27,000 B.C.]]

[[AC:Voyage to the Bottom of Buford]]

* The title of the episode is a reference to ''Film/AHardDaysNight.''

[[AC:Traffic Cam Caper]]

[[AC:Bowl-R-Ama Drama]]

[[AC:Got Game?]]
* Doof is trying to adopt a dog and Perry disguises himself as a dog to foil his plans. The pet shop owner tells him "I'm not even sure that's [Perry] a dog." It's entirely possible that this is a ShoutOut to ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'', where the woman in charge of the kennel Lilo is trying to adopt a dog from says pretty much the same thing about Stitch.
* Isabella's "I'm going to take that ball and shoot it into that goal" speech is based on Film/BillyJack's famous BadassBoast, right down to her assuring him "and there's nothing you're gonna be able to do about it."

[[AC:Comet Kermillian]]
* The title maybe a reference to [[Music/CultureClub Karma Chameleon]].

[[AC:Put That Putter Away]]

[[AC:Does This Duckbill Make Me Look Fat?]]

[[AC:The Flying Fishmonger]]

[[AC:One Good Scare Ought to Do It!]]
* The haunted house shows a reference to ''Franchise/TheHauntedMansion'' and Disney's WesternAnimation/{{Silly Symphon|ies}}y "The Skeleton Dance".
* The end of the song shows the rollercoaster in a fashion very similar to the opening credits of ''WesternAnimation/{{Beetlejuice}}''. The melody is also reminiscent of that show's theme song.

[[AC:The Monster of Phineas-n-Ferbenstein]]
* Apart from the obvious parallels to Mary Shelly's ''Literature/{{Frankenstein}}'' and ''Literature/DrJekyllAndMrHyde,'' one of the monsters hiding in the cave looks like Creator/RayHarryhausen's cyclops.

[[AC:Oil on Candace]]

[[AC:Out of Toon]]
* The Pinhead Pierre song has a Biblical reference PlayedForLaughs. [[http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2%20kings%202:23-25&version=NIV Read the story here,]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uLMMPdzdqPY and watch the song here.]]
* If you listen closely to the "dance music" that plays twice in -- [[ItMakesSenseInContext once when Perry's defeating evil while dancing and then when the animation studio dances away]]-- there are parts that sound an awful lot like [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid "Under the Sea"]].
* When Perry and Doof first get hit, the song is from the climax of ''WesternAnimation/LeroyAndStitch''.

[[AC:Hail Doofania!]]

[[AC:Out to Launch]]
* This episode's chock full of them. Most notably when Phineas quotes [[Franchise/StarWars Luke Skywalker.]]
* The music that plays during the trip through the asteroid field bears a striking resemblance to a song from the ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' soundtrack called "The Asteroid Field".
* Doof's robot is takes some cues from ''Anime/{{Gigantor}}''.

[[AC:Phineas and Ferb Get Busted!]]
* The brainwashing sequence might look [[Film/AClockworkOrange eerily familiar]] to older fans.
** This was lampshaded:
-->'''Baljeet:'''The book was so much better.
*** Assuming it's not referencing the movie they're watching in context, this opens a bit of FridgeHorror since the book version is rather notorious for its ending in which Alex becoming more civil, pretty much ruining what the book stood for.
* And the Sergeant has stepped right out of ''Film/FullMetalJacket''.
* The TV interviewer greatly resembles Creator/GeraldoRivera.
* The song that plays when Candace and Jeremy try to fly the Flying Car of the Future (Today) to the reform school sounds a bit like the theme from ''Franchise/BackToTheFuture''.
* When the boys are snapped out of their trance, [[Disney/TheLionKing light shines down on them on the cliffside.]]

[[AC:Unfair Science Fair]]

[[AC:Unfair Science Fair Redux (Another Story)]]


[[folder:Season Two]]
[[AC:The Lake Nose Monster]]
* There's a boat named [[Film/CitizenKane Nosebud]] and even has somebody drop a snowglobe towards the end of the episode.

[[AC:Interview With a Platypus]]
* The title is a reference to Literature/InterviewWithTheVampire.

[[AC:Tip of the Day]]

[[AC:Attack of the 50 Foot Sister]]
* Baljeet's holographic message to Phineas references [[Film/ANewHope Leia's message to Obi-Wan Kenobi]]:
-->'''Baljeet:''' Phineas and Ferb, days ago you helped me [[CallBack build a portal to Mars.]] Now I must ask for your help again. ... Help me, Phineas and Ferb. You're my only hope.
* The title is a reference to ''Film/AttackOfThe50FootWoman''.

[[AC:Backyard Aquarium]]
* Doofenshmirtz and Perry's fight is very reminiscent of the battle between Yoda and Dooku in ''Franchise/StarWars [[Film/AttackOfTheClones Episode 2]]''. Doofenshmirtz even pantomimes an attempt to Force Pull a nearby wall fixture.
** A blink-and-you'll-miss-it example from the same fight. At one point, Perry nonchalantly switches his hot-dog [[IAmNotLeftHanded from his right hand]] [[Film/ThePrincessBride to his left.]]

[[AC:Day of the Living Gelatin]]
* Title is a reference to ''Film/NightOfTheLivingDead1968''.

[[AC:Elementary My Dear Stacy]]
* The title is a reference to the [[BeamMeUpScotty inaccurate but oft-quoted]] Literature/SherlockHolmes catchphrase, "Elementary, my dear Watson."

[[AC:Don't Even Blink]]
* The title "Don't Even Blink" could possibly be shout-outs to the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "Blink". Of course, minus the creepy parts.

[[AC:Chez Platypus]]
* The heart-shaped moon in "Evil Love" could be a ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'' shout out... or even an explanation. (Phineas and Ferb in ''Franchise/KingdomHearts? Yes please!)

[[AC:Perry Lays an Egg]]
* The episode is full of references to ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'', specifically baby sea turtles, krill, and speaking whale language.

[[AC:Gaming the System]]
* When Doofenshmirtz traps Perry in the ball gown, the first few notes of the theme of ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' (notes of the line "Tale as old as time") plays.
** The digitizing ray is an obvious reference to ''Film/{{Tron}}'', but it's probably just a coincidence that their last name is "Flynn". The game that Buford has is also similar to a UsefulNotes/{{Nintendo DS}}i. Additionally, one of the sounds in Jump & Duck is the sound that plays in ''Franchise/SuperMarioBros'' when the player gets a coin.

[[AC:The Chronicles of Meap]]
* There is a rather subtle ''Series/DoctorWho'' gag in ''Out to Launch'', involving Ferb's ability to "maximize inside space."
* Candace [[Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial flies a bike with an alien in the basket]] to a space station that looks like [[Series/DoctorWho the Sycorax asteroid.]]
* Doofenshmirtz's childhood friend Balloony also being called Colin, which was the name of the dog of a girl that [[Franchise/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy Ford Prefect]] was implied to have liked and Ford later gave this name to a rather balloon-like security robot.
** Balloony (and his hairless 'head') may also have been a shout out to another [[Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway bald Colin]]...
* Isabella tells Phineas, "I'm endangering the mission. I shouldn't have come", a quote from Luke Skywalker when the ship Han, Leia, Luke and the droids traveled to Endor.
* When the villain advances on Meap, Candace points a gun at him and yells, [[Film/{{Aliens}} "Get away from him...]] [[ThisIsForEmphasisBitch Mitch!"]]
* This might be stretching it a little, but [[VideoGame/{{Gradius}} look closely at Mitch's fighter ship...]]
* And, of course...
--> '''Ferb:''' [[Film/ANewHope That's no cloud, that's a space station.]]\\
'''Phineas:''' I have a good feeling about this.\\
'''Mitch:''' [[Franchise/StarWars And just so we're clear, I am NOT your father!]]

[[AC:Thaddeus and Thor]]
* There's a ''[[Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus Pythonesque]]''-style giant cartoon foot stomping down.

[[AC:De Plane! De Plane!]]
* The title is a reference to Tattoo's catchphrase from ''Series/FantasyIsland''.

[[AC:Let's Take a Quiz]]
* "Let's Take a Quiz!" is similar to "Wordwang", a quiz show on ''Series/ThatMitchellandWebbLook''.

[[AC:At the Car Wash]]
* Candace's hair is briefly turned into [[Film/ANewHope Princess Leia's]] iconic hairdo.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YD_upnNA7bY&feature=related Doofenshmirtz mentions a site]] with [[WebOriginal/{{Lolcats}} funny cat pictures]], citing a picture with an [[http://cheezburger.com/jcampbell/lolz/View/2533630208 Invisible Cheeseburger]].
** The song in this episode is a pastiche of Music/TheB52s.
* The crowd recoiling in horror as the giant starnosed mole advances toward them is probably a shout out to ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}''. The man who cries "Oh no, it's a hideous giant mole!" is the most obvious indication.

[[AC:Oh, There You Are, Perry]]
* Doofenshmirtz exclaims "We did it! We did it! Lo hicimos! We did it!" This bit is very similar to the "We Did It" song from ''WesternAnimation/DoraTheExplorer'' (minus one "We did it").

[[AC:Swiss Family Phineas]]
* Lawrence remarks to Candace "Don't worry, it's only [[Series/GilligansIsland a three hour tour.]]"
* The title is a reference to ''Literature/SwissFamilyRobinson''.

[[AC:Hide and Seek]]
* There's a ShoutOut to ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' when Baljeet has to hide in the corpse of a fly to keep himself warm.
* When the music during the sewing supplies sword fight plays, is nearly lifted from ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean''.

[[AC:That Sinking Feeling]]
* The episode is one AffectionateParody to both ''Film/{{Titanic|1997}}'' and ''Series/TheLoveBoat''. Also, we see Major Monogram and Carl playing a game not unlike ''VideoGame/RockBand'' while waiting for Perry.

[[AC:The Baljeatles]]
* When Candace is listing examples of nicknames boyfriends give their girlfriends, she caps it off with [[WesternAnimation/MickeyMouse "Peg Leg Pete."]]
* Baljeet remarks that his life is a "Black cauldron of swirling failure,'' which is possibly a reference to one of Disney's most infamous [[Disney/TheBlackCauldron failures.]]
* Baljeet begins his song "Somebody Give Me a Grade" by shouting "I have got something to say!" Someone on the writing staff is clearly a Music/DefLeppard fan.
** Not to mention how the band's name is [[Music/TheBeatles The Baljeatles]].

[[AC:Vanessassary Roughness]]

[[AC:No More Bunny Business]]

[[AC:Spa Day]]

[[AC:Phineas and Ferb's Quantum Boogaloo]]

[[AC:Bubble Boys]]
* Perry's (and Candace's) [[Film/TheBluesBrothers skidding]] ParallelParking ...

[[AC:Isabella and the Temple of Sap]]

[[AC:Cheer Up Candace]]
* Perry's fight with his evil robot duplicates referenced the "Burly Brawl" sequence from ''Film/TheMatrix Reloaded''.

[[AC:Fireside Girl Jamboree]]

[[AC:The Bully Code]]

[[AC:Finding Mary [=McGuffin=]]]
* There's a montage that's also a tribute to [[Series/StarskyAndHutch several]] [[Series/MiamiVice detective shows]], including a riotous shout out to the ''Series/CSIMiami'' opening theme.
-->'''Manager:''' Aren't you a little young to be watching these old detective shows?\\
'''Phineas:''' Why yes. Yes we [''puts on shades''] ... ARE.\\
** The ''name'' is even a ShoutOut to Creator/AlfredHitchcock.

[[AC:Picture This]]
--> '''Doofenshmirtz''': (''sticks his head out the window'') Who's tap-tap-tapping? Is it [[Creator/EdgarAllanPoe that pesky raven again]]?
** Also, when the boys try to teleport Buford and a housefly using their transporter machine, they accidentally briefly end up with a [[Series/TheFly Buford-fly hybrid]].

[[AC:Nerdy Dancin']]
* Ferb's motion-capture suit looks like the ''Film/{{Tron}}'' [[MemeticMutation Guy]].
* It's possible that "the Ferbalistic Groovatron 9000" is a ShoutOut to the Future trilogy of ''VideoGame/RatchetAndClank'', which features a recurring device/weapon called the Groovitron. Coincidentally, the "Otherdimensionator" comes close to [[NamesTheSame sharing a name]] with ''[[VideoGame/RatchetAndClankFutureToolsOfDestruction Tools of Destruction's]]'' Dimensionator.
* Perry is strapped down while a laser cuts upwards, a reference to ''Film/JamesBond'':
** Also lampshaded:
--->'''Doofenshmirtz''': I saw this in a [[Film/{{Goldfinger}} movie]] once. I don't know how it ended [[BondVillainStupidity but it seemed pretty foolproof.]]
* The title is a reference to ''Film/DirtyDancing''.

[[AC:What Do It Do?]]

* When Irving's camera is stolen by an eel, Phineas suggests that he can take pictures in his mind and store them in his memory. Irving does this (or tries) by saying ''"Click!"'', like Cam Jansen of the titular children's detective book series.

[[AC:Just Passing Through]]

[[AC:Candace's Big Day]]
* When Ginger whip-cracking in the song "Wedding Adventures", she's wearing Franchise/IndianaJones's clothes.
** There is another one in "Wedding Adventures" right before the whip-cracking scene. Milly is doing the idol scene from ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk''.

[[AC:I Was a Middle Aged Robot]]
* The title is an allusion to the ''I Was a Teenage...'' series released in the 1950s.

[[AC:Suddenly Suzy]]
* The title may be a reference to ''Series/SuddenlySusan.''

[[AC:Undercover Carl]]
* The episode begins with Phineas saying "Ha ha, gravity." This is the exact same line that Aang from ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' makes in one episode. Just a few seconds later he says they're busy 'defying gravity', possibly a reference to the ''Theatre/{{Wicked}}'' song.

[[AC:Hip Hip Parade]]

[[AC:Invasion of the Ferb Snatchers]]
* There's a shout out to the original ''Film/MenInBlack'' movie and to Creator/DisneyChannel series ''WesternAnimation/DaveTheBarbarian'':
-->'''Linda:''' {{GASP}}! Candace! You scared the bejabbers out of me!
** The title is a obvious shout out to ''Film/InvasionOfTheBodySnatchers''.

[[AC:Ain't No Kiddie Ride]]

[[AC:Not Phineas and Ferb]]

[[AC:Phineas and Ferb-Busters!]]
* When Doofenshmirtz is going on about how great his other robot is, Norm says [[Film/TheWizardOfOz Now I know I have a heart, because it's breaking."]]
** Also, Baljeet claims that the name of his board game is called "Spinning Tops Of Doom". [[WesternAnimation/KimPossible Sound familiar?]]

[[AC:The Lizard Whisperer]]
* During Ferb's speech alludes to the famous "We Shall Fight on the Beaches" speech. It's not just Winston Churchill, though -- it starts like [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Aragorn's]] speech at the black gates and ends with [[Theatre/HenryV "we band of brothers."]]

[[AC:Robot Rodeo]]
* One of the villains attending the convention seems [[WebVideo/DoctorHorriblesSingAlongBlog Horribly familiar]]...

[[AC:The Beak]]

[[AC:She's the Mayor]]
* There're campaign posters with Candace's face on them, posters which have [[UsefulNotes/BarackObama a very familiar stylized look]].

[[AC:The Lemonade Stand]]

[[AC:Phineas and Ferb Hawaiian Vacation]]
* The episodes featured many shout outs to ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'', including a cameo by the Fat Tourist and Candace wearing Lilo's signature outfit.
* Candace has to get rid of a cursed Tiki charm, similar to the plot of ''Series/TheBradyBunch'''s Tiki curse problem when they were in Hawaii.
* Doofenshmirtz points out the crabs on the beach worshipping the Evolutionator, saying it was "Looking [[Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey Kubricky]]".

[[AC:Nerds of a Feather]]
* In Candace's dream, the zebra holds a poster, with a poster of her and the words "[[UsefulNotes/BarackObama Yes We Can]]".
* The fandoms in the convention alludes to ''Franchise/StarTrek'', specifically the whole "[[StarTrekMovieCurse even numbered movies are the only good ones]]" part. ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' is also shown.
* Unsure if this one is intentional or not, Buford's reaction to a holographic Phineas showing up is 'What trickery is this!?". ''WesternAnimation/SamuraiJack'' said the exact same line before he was flung into the future.
* Doofensmirtz pitching the idea for a TV show, only to rage quit after the producer asks for one small change, despite already approving of the show, has been done before in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy''. Almost word for word. To further elaborate, Jeff [=McGarland=] is voiced by Creator/SethMacFarlane, the creator of Family Guy.
* Buford references a "Hyborian Age", the place where Robert E. Howard's ''Literature/ConanTheBarbarian'' stories take place.

[[AC:Wizard of Odd]]
* The episode's name, as well as most of the plot, is a direct allusion to ''Film/TheWizardOfOz''.

[[AC:We Call it Maze]]
* The maze features a button that looks like the [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Triforce]].
* Ferb making the famous idol switch from ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk''.

[[AC:Ladies and Gentlemen, Meet Max Modem!]]
* Max Modem's name is a direct allusion to [[Series/MaxHeadroom MaMaMaMaMaMax Headroom]]. And his outfit looks like the one Riff Raff wore near the end of ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'', because Creator/RichardOBrien is Lawrence's voice actor.
* Doof mentioned that "You are being invaded, from space! By [[VideoGame/SpaceInvaders invaders!]] [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment From space!]]"
* Lindana sings that "I'm not [[Music/ThePolice Roxanne]], I'm not [[Music/DexysMidnightRunners Eileen]], I'm not [[Music/TheKnack Sharona]]"

[[AC:The Secret of Success]]
* A motivational speaker asks a girl if she knows what it takes to be president. She says "[[UsefulNotes/BarackObama Yes. Yes. I. Can.]]"

[[AC:The Doof Side of the Moon]]

[[AC:Split Personality]]
* Candace is cloned and runs around trying to find her clone. At one point when told that her clone has gone off with her mother, she does, of all things, an imitation of Donald Sutherland's famous howl from ''Film/{{Invasion of the Body Snatchers|1978}}''.
** Another from this episode is the outfit Linda is trying on in the dressing room is clearly the outfit Jesus wore in the [=GodSpell=] movie.

[[AC:Brain Drain]]
* The video game Phineas, Ferb, Baljeet, Buford, and Isabella are playing greatly resembles ''VideoGame/{{MUGEN}}''.

[[AC:Rollercoaster: The Musical!]]
* There was a pile of these right in the first song including: ''Theatre/{{Cats}}'', ''Theatre/ThePhantomOfTheOpera'', ''Theatre/{{Oklahoma}}'', ''Film/SinginInTheRain'', ''Theatre/FiddlerOnTheRoof'', ''Theatre/WestSideStory'', ''Theatre/TheMusicMan'', ''Theatre/LesMiserables'', ''Theatre/TheKingAndI'', and ''Theatre/{{Chicago}}''. All in less than about three minutes.
** "Permanecer sentados por favor" (Spanish for "Please remain in your seats") from the "Rollercoaster" song is a shout-out to the safety spiel at the end of the Matterhorn Bobsleds in Disneyland.
** At the end of the episode, they mention the phrase "Carpe Diem", which means "Seize the Day". Then they go into the last song, "Carpe Diem", choreographed by Kenny Ortega, who was the director and choreographer for the musical film ''Film/{{Newsies}}'', which had a song called "Seize the Day". What's more is that the set for "Carpe Diem" is reminiscent of ''Film/HighSchoolMusical'', another Kenny Ortega musical film.

[[AC:Make Play]]

[[AC:Candace Gets Busted]]
* Doof sometimes likes to [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 dub his voice over movies to make fun of them]]
* At one point during the chaos of Candace's "intimate get-together," she snatches a [[Film/RiskyBusiness large glass egg]] from the hands of a random party-goer and puts it back safely on a shelf.


[[folder:Season Three]]

[[AC:The Great Indoors]]
* When Phineas and Ferb are showing off their biosphere to the Fireside girls, Phineas asks, "Can we cook, or can't we?", a Shout Out to ''Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan'', were Dr. Carol Marcus asks "Can I cook or can't I?" when showing Kirk the Genesis Cave.


[[AC:Run, Candace, Run]]
* The title song which is a style parody of the music from ''Film/RunLolaRun'', stops very abruptly with [[WatchOutForThatTree "Nothing can stop you,]] [[WesternAnimation/GeorgeOfTheJungle look out for that tree!"]]

[[AC:Last Train to Bustville]]
* Candace's reaction to the train making it to the top of the mountain is to paraphrase ''The Little Engine That Could''. ("I knew we could, I knew we could, I knew we could!")
** Meanwhile, the episode's title references Music/TheMonkees song "Last Train to Clarksville".

[[AC:Phineas' Birthday Clip-O-Rama!]]
* Isabella recites a Fireside Girls version of Creator/AllenGinsberg's "{{Literature/Howl}}".

[[AC:The Belly of the Beast]]
* The episode eventually morphs into a ''Literature/MobyDick'' reference, guess which character channels Ahab and which two titular characters become the white whale. Also, the boat chasing the shark is named "Pea-quad" (the ''Pequod'').
* This episode also features a few references to ''Film/{{Jaws}}'', the most obvious one being when Phineas says, "we're going to need a bigger shark!" (Candace also uses the same line).

[[AC:Moon Farm]]
* During the song, streaks of light go past Isabella's helmet in the same way ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey'' ended.

[[AC:Ask a Foolish Question]]

[[AC:Misperceived Monotreme]]
* Major Monogram has security footage of Dr. Doofenshmirtz singing a song about Shangri-La, which may be a reference to ''Film/{{Xanadu}}'' (which featured a song of the same name sung by Olivia Newton-John and Music/ElectricLightOrchestra--the latter of whom, likely coincidentally, has a song called "Shangri-La").

[[AC:Candace Disconnected]]

[[AC:Magic Carpet Ride]]
* The song "Aerial Area Rug" is an obvious affectionate parody of the song "A Whole New World" from ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}''

[[AC:Bad Hair Day]]
* Candace's hair is a clear shout out to ''The Film/BrideOfFrankenstein''.
* Jeremy's mother is reading the manual for the tranquilizer dart, which includes the sentence [[Film/FullMetalJacket "there are many like it,]] [[http://web.archive.org/web/20070310183121/http://www.lejeune.usmc.mil/2dmardiv/aabn/Rifleman.htm but this one is yours."]] Her reading the manual in the first place may be a reference to Edmund reading the manual for a ''cannon'' in the final episode of ''Series/{{Blackadder}} the Third''.
* Doofenshmirtz can be seen playing an piano organ, he then plays a couple of familiar notes and you could have sworn he could have said [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight What is a Platypus?!]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRZbnfjk_N4 Start at 3:38]]

[[AC:Meatloaf Surprise]]

[[AC:Phineas and Ferb Interrupted]]

[[AC:A Real Boy]]
* The plot involves Norm wanting to becoming a real boy a la ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}''.

[[AC:Mommy Can You Hear Me?]]
* The ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey'' references are taken up to eleven:
** The transition from a bone tossed in the air to a space station.
** The use of "The Blue Danube" as background music.
** The wormhole sequence.
** And of course the entire ending scene with the creepy Ferb fetus.
* The episode's name is almost undoubtedly a shoutout to the ''Film/{{Yentl}}'' song, "Papa, Can You Hear Me?"
** It could also be a reference to Music/TheWho song "Tommy, Can You Hear Me?"

[[AC:Road Trip]]
** When Perry and Doofenshmirtz are fighting in the cab of Doofenzshmirtz's truck, the fight choreography is directly taken from Indy's fight with the driver of the German truck in ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk''.

[[AC:Tour de Ferb]]
* The title references the famous annual bike race, the ''Tour de France''.

[[AC:Skiddley Whiffers]]
* The titular board game is an amalgam of various board games, most notably ''Monopoly''.

[[AC:My Fair Goalie]]
* Candace's plot line, as well as the episode's title, is a reference to ''Film/MyFairLady''.
** To drive this point home, Ferb's cousin (who isn't named after David Beckham), is named "Eliza".

* The preview for the episode features [[CallBack the return of]] [[FanNickname "Doofenshmirtz is a Superstar"]], which includes Heinz running headfirst into a toilet. His cry of "It won't stop flushing!" might be a reference to the Super Toilet/"So much clogging!" gag from ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents''.
* There's also a literal shout out, right in line with the one from The Secret of Success. In the middle of the musical number, the L.O.V.E.M.U.F.F.I.N singers belt out [[UsefulNotes/BarackObama "YES! WE! CAN!"]]

[[AC:That's the Spirit]]
* You can hear a voice say, "I'm incorporeal. Isn't that scary?" in the haunted house. He's speaking in an impression of Creator/VincentPrice's narration of the ''Thriller'' music video.
** As is Russell's dad, Waylon's voice.
* Baljeet's costume looks an awful lot like the creature that [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Daffy Duck]] is turned into in one of the NoFourthWall episodes of ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' ("WesternAnimation/DuckAmuck"). In the preview Buford even calls his costume a ''daff''odil, despite looking nothing like one. Could be coincidence.

[[AC:The Curse of Candace]]
* It begins with one of the greatest parodies of ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' to date.
--> '''JARED:''' "I expect this from ''your kind'', Michael--football players, I mean--but Kristen, I mean, we were both--[[EmoTeen moody outcasts!]] We...we ''[[EternalLove loved]]'' each other!"
** Later, after the movie ends, when Stacey and Candace exit the cinema hall, there is a poster revealing that the movie is called "Early Evening".
** This is also coupled with an ActorAllusion, as the person who voices the Jacob Black {{Expy}} in the movie is Creator/MichaelJFox, who is known for [[Film/TeenWolf another adolescent-oriented film that involves lycanthropes.]]
* In that same episode, though, [[FunnyBackgroundEvent you can see posters]] for such fictional blockbusters as ''[[Film/{{Jumper}} Leap]]'' and ''[[Film/{{Australia}} New Zealand]]''.
* We get this gem from Lawrence ([[ActorAllusion played by]] Creator/RichardOBrien): "Well, this isn't much of a horror movie. Where are the [[Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow rock 'n roll musical numbers?]]"

[[AC:Escape from Phineas Tower]]
* The tower after being shot by the rude-inator starts acting like Hal 9000 from ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey''.

[[AC:Lotsa Latkes]]
* Buford has a sock puppet, saying, "Hey! Who turned out the lights?" in exactly the same inflection as Proper Dave in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS30E9ForestOfTheDead "Forest of the Dead"]].

[[AC:Ferb Latin]]
* The most basic formula of Ferb Latin is identical to "pig latin".

[[AC:Tri-Stone Area]]
* Many of the characters come off this way, being cavepeople, but Buford in particular looks like he walked right off the set of ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones''.
** Easily missed among the cave talk, Doofendung refers to prehistoric Perry as "Bunka da bunkakwunk." In the TV special, WesternAnimation/TheCatInTheHat claims that he's "a bunka in a bunkakwunk, in Eskimo."

[[AC:Doof Dynasty]]
* The training montage song "Way of the Platypus" contains multiple nods to ''Disney/{{Mulan}}'', and has this lyric:
-->You'll travel to a swamp planet\\
[[Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack Meet a little green man]]\\
[[Franchise/StarWars And move big heavy things with your mind!]]
** There's also a brief nod to WaxOnWaxOff (which Buford, of course, fails to grasp), and the giant terracotta warrior's opening move against Doofus Khan is the Crane Stance, also from ''Film/TheKarateKid''.
* The giant robots are a shout out to Japan's love of giant mech series. This is lampshaded by Regent Monogram. It might be taken a step further, with Doof's dragon referencing Godzilla, or Kaiju in general, and the terracotta warrior referencing SuperSentai (five pilots controlling a single humanoid robot) or Ultraman (a humanoid robot who fights kaiju) but it's hard to say.

* The title and the mystical sword are references to the Arthurian legend Excalibur. THe quest is given to them by the Lady of the Puddle, who mentioned the Lady of the Lake (the one who gave Arthur Excalibur) is her mother. Cuts to the Lady of the Lake who is in the middle of giving King Arthur Excaliber.
* There is a swamp in ''Literature/TheNeverendingStory''. In order to cross it, you must not think unhappy thoughts. "This swamp was made for me, Ferb!"
* Among the ten thousand monsters gathered by Phineas and Ferb is a WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyle|s}} resembling a green Goliath.
* The episode is loaded with nods to fantasy stories like ''Ltierature/TheLordOfTheRings'', ''Literature/TheNeverEndingStory'', and ''Film/ThePrincessBride''.
* Malefishmirtz's name and outfit is a nod to Maleficent from Disney's ''Disney/SleepingBeauty''.
* Strangely enough, the "Epic Monster Battle" song sounds a lot like Christian musician Carmen's "The Champion".

[[AC:Phineas and Ferb and the Temple of Juatchadoon]]
* The episode takes many homages from the ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' movies, including the title referencing the ''[[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheTempleOfDoom Temple of Doom]]'' movie, Isabella betraying Phineas and Ferb like how Elsa betrayed Indy in ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade'', and Doof lampshading when the temple is crumbling that [[Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk his face will probably melt off]].

[[AC:Monster from the Id]]
* The title is a nod to ''Film/ForbiddenPlanet''. The opening of the episode has the kids sharing their minds; besides the obvious ''Franchise/StarTrek'' mindmeld shoutout, the set-up also calls to mind ''Film/{{Inception}}'''s dreamsharing. Near the end of that adventure, while inside Candace's mind, all the kids have to give Baljeet a 'kick', by shocking him with grammatically incorrect contractions. It also appears that Buford remained behind with Candace's primal self, in her mind's limbo. The music during this segment also bears strong similarities to Hans Zimmer's score for Inception, particularly the use of electric guitar.

* Doofenshmirtz gets the turkey from the Turkey-inator [[Series/MrBean stuck on his head]], and also is a callback to a [[Series/{{Friends}} The One with All the Thanksgivings]] as well.

[[AC:The Remains of the Platypus]]
* The title may be a reference to ''Literature/TheRemainsOfTheDay''.
* We get a song about Perry's hat as it floats on the wind. We briefly pass a man in a white suit whose sitting on a bench, waiting for the bus. [[Film/ForrestGump I guess this show is like a box of chocolates; you never know what references you're going to get]].
* After Perry eats Doofenshmirtz's cheese, [[WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry his belly becomes cheese-shaped]].
* The entire episode is basically a Phineas-and-Ferbified version of the movie ''Film/{{Memento}}'', not so much in terms of the plot, but in the way the story is told: it starts at almost [[MindScrew the end]], and [[BackToFront works its way scene-by-scene back to how it all began]], slowly revealing more of the plot as it goes. This ''might'' just be seen as an unintentional coincidence, except that at the end, Perry [[spoiler:who is revealed to have had his memory stolen by Doofenshmirtz, finally remembers his mission because he had ''written a [[NoteToSelf message to himself on his body]] before his memory was erased'']].

[[AC:Mom's in the House]]
* The "Perrytronic" number is one big old nod to ''Anime/{{Gigantor}}'' and other old HumongousMecha anime from TheSixties.

[[AC:Perry The Actorpus]]

[[AC:Let's Bounce]]
* The B-plot involves a mad scientist using an experiment designed to cause chaos by exposing people's little white lies, which sounds suspiciously like the "Fibber" episode of ''WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries'', another Disney cartoon.

[[AC:Bully Bromance Breakup]]

[[AC:Quietest Day Ever]]

[[AC:The Doonkelberry Imperative]]

[[AC:Meapless in Seattle]]
* For another absolutely ''epic'' ''Franchise/StarWars'' reference, we are given the opening credits.
** In another ''Franchise/StarWars'' reference, Mitch's pod walker looks similar to an AT-ST, and is taken out by wrapping its legs, like an AT-AT in the Battle of Hoth.
* Also, in a very generous piece of ParentalBonus, we get Candace referencing ''Film/TheBlairWitchProject'' when she leaves the last message to mom on her phone.

[[AC:Delivery of Destiny]]
* Paul the delivery guy shifts his truck to "turbo," causing it to jump down the street like KITT's turbo boosts in ''Series/KnightRider.''

[[AC:Buford Confidential]]

[[AC:The Mom Attractor]]

[[AC:Cranius Maximus]]
* Perry's transit to his lair is an obvious reference to ''Literature/TheLionTheWitchAndTheWardrobe''.

[[AC:Agent Doof]]
* Doof references The Duck Song ([[OrphanedPunchline "And the duck says 'got any grapes?'"]]) while on a coffee break with Agent P and the other agents. Needless to say, the duck is not amused.

[[AC:Minor Monogram]]

[[AC:What A Croc!]]

[[AC:Sleepwalk Surprise]]

[[AC:Sci-Fi Pie Fly]]

[[AC:Sipping with the Enemy]]
* The title is a reference to "Sleeping With the Enemy"

[[AC:Tri-State Treasure: Boot of Secrets]]
* Phineas and Ferb's film ends with a ''TyrannosaurusRex'' [[Film/JurassicPark roaring while a banner falls down in front of the screen]].
* The title is a reference to the second ''Film/NationalTreasure'' film.
* The entire plot is a send up of ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' tropes. Most notably, the picking the right boot scrapper is based off the "cup of Christ" scene from ''[[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade The Last Crusade]]''.


[[AC:Norm Unleashed]]
* Some of Norm's weapons during his VillainSong sure do look a lot like [[WesternAnimation/TheIronGiant another giant robot]].

[[AC:Ferb TV]]
* Baljeet insists in being called "[[WebComic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja Doctor Ninja Baljeet]]".
* Cat Car is a reference to ''Series/KnightRider.''

[[AC:When Worlds Collide]]

[[AC:What'd I Miss?]]
* When Buford is questioned regarding him teaching squirrels to dance, he responds that [[WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}} "He's like an onion."]]
-->'''Baljeet''': Because you have layers?
-->'''Buford''': That too!

[[AC:Road to Danville]]

[[AC:This Is Your Backstory]]
* The title, as well as the format of Doofenshmirtz's plot, refers to the old TV series ''Series/ThisIsYourLife''.



[[folder:Season Four]]

[[AC:For Your Ice Only]]

[[AC:Happy New Year!]]
* About 40 seconds into the New Years song we cut to Phineas and Ferb doing the [[Music/{{PSY}} Gangnam Style]] dance.

[[AC:Fly On the Wall]]
* When Fly!Candace is caught in her mother's car, she smacks against the back window wailing [[Film/TheFly1958 "Help Meeee!"]]

[[AC:Bully Bust]]

[[AC:My Sweet Ride]]
* Doofenshmirtz's flashback to the Gimmelshtump car show depicts [[WesternAnimation/WackyRaces lots of strange vehicles moving from right to left in single file]].

[[AC:Der Kinderlumper]]
* Doofenshmirtz's musical number has him in a white tux accompanied by a jazz band dancing in a way remarkably similar to Music/CabCalloway. Heck, the song might even be considered a reference to 'The Old Man of The Mountain", famously used in a WesternAnimation/BettyBoop [[WesternAnimation/TheOldManOfTheMountain cartoon of the same name]].

* Doofenshmirtz suggests going to Niagara Falls. The scene then cuts to Him, Perry, Monogram, Carl, Lyla, and Peter the Panda [[Film/OceansEleven at the railing to the falls]] while [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qHn834Qg3q0 orchestral music plays]] before they each leave, passing by [[Film/OceansEleven eleven men]] as they [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=23dvaEwG-W0 go]].

[[AC:Primal Perry]]
* This has a clever ''Film/ArmyOfDarkness'' reference.
** May or may not be intentional, but the situation Perry and Doofenshmirtz get into (being handcuffed to each other and chased by a hunter) is ''extremely'' similar to the plot of one ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' episode. The hunter even mentions hanging them in his trophy room!
*** Probably not a reference to Danny Phantom; that situation is common enough to [[ChainedHeat have it's own trope name]].
* While Perry and Doof are preparing to confront Liam, the music imitates the ''Film/{{Predator}}'' theme.

[[AC:Mind Share]]
* The episodes includes several references to ''Film/TheShawshankRedemption'', including the drainpipe escape and the prison including an inmate named Red who knows how to get things, with his narration done in the stye of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjKF7aQthcQ Alice's Restaurant ]]..
** The basic plot is that the heroes are given the chance to vacation on an alien planet by swapping minds with its inhabitants, only to discover once the swap has taken place that they've been conned. This is very similar to the opening chapters of Creator/RobertSheckley's 1966 novel ''Mindswap''. In fact the phrase "mind swap" actually occurs in the episode.

[[AC:Backyard Hodge Podge]]

[[AC:Bee Day]]

[[AC:Bee Story]]
* Isabella gives [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7vtWB4owdE a Bluto-esque]] [[Film/AnimalHouse rousing speech]]. And Professor Poofenplotz channels [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Lady Galadriel]].

[[AC:Great Balls Of Water]]
* Title is a reference to a Creator/JerryLeeLewis song.

[[AC:Where's Pinky?]]
* Doofenshmirtz uses the password [[Film/{{TRON}} "reindeer flotilla"]] to get to the deed to the tri-state area.
* In the 'History of the Tri-State Area' song, the guide speaks of the Tri-State capital building being carried on the backs of giant sea-turtles, likely referencing Discworld.
* When Perry and Pinky catch up to Dr. Doof, Doof: " Perry the Platypus!?[[Film/{{TheWizardOfOz}} "And your little dog, too?!"]]
[[AC:Knot My Problem]]

[[AC:Just Desserts]]
* After the kids finish climbing their climbing-wall and are surrounded by stars and "getting light-headed".
-->'''Buford''': Oh I Get it. We are in space. AAAHAAAHAAAHAAA! [[Film/{{Alien}} I heard that.]]

[[AC:La Candace-Cabra]]

[[AC:Happy Birthday, Isabella]]

[[AC:Love at First Byte]]

[[AC:One Good Turn]]

[[AC:Thanks But No Thanks]]

[[AC:Troy Story]]
* The title is a reference to ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory''.

* Inside joke on Vanessa as a vampire queen for the Halloween party. Her voice actress, Olivia Olsen, plays Marceline the Vampire Queen on WesternAnimation/AdventureTime''.
* The "Vampire Queen and Scarlet Pimpernel" song is a play on the song [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Beauty And The Beast]], including the line "tale as old as time".

[[AC:Terrifying Tri-State Trilogy of Terror]]
* The third story about getting grape juice on a platypus resembles the plot from Film/{{Gremlins}}.
* When the first evil platypus clone escapes from the tent:
--> '''Isabella''': [[Film/{{Aliens}} I say we take off and nuke the entire place from orbit. It's the only way the be sure.]]

[[AC:Face Your Fear]]

[[AC:Cheers for Fears]]
* Monogram mentions that he and his friends have an event called "Horrific Movie Night", where [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 they watch and mock bad movies.]] Funny thing is that one of thr storyboard artists for the episode, John Mathot, has a similar thing called "Horrible Movie Night".
* The title is a reference to Music/TearsForFears.


[[AC:Live and Let Drive]]
* With a title that's a reference to ''Film/LiveAndLetDie'', it's no surprise that the first half of the story seems to be an exercise in "how many ''Film/JamesBond'' references can we squeeze in 5 minutes": Perry drives an [[WritingAroundTrademarks Olson]] [[Film/{{Goldfinger}} Martin 1963]], accompanied by a SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute of the Film/DrNo opening theme; Doofenshmirtz plays cards in a casino and tells a player who walked away in disgust at losing to [[Film/NeverSayNeverAgain never say never]]; a casino official who looks suspisciously like Oddjob tells Doof that no pets are allowed (Doof was holding a [[Film/YouOnlyLiveTwice white cat]]); Norm found [[Film/TheSpyWhoLovedMe metal teeth]] in the lair Doof is currently staying where there's also still standing a [[Film/{{Moonraker}} rocket]]; and Doofenshmirtz' new jingle is a straight-up Bond Theme (with strong influences of the Film/{{Goldfinger}} theme).

[[AC:Lost in Danville]]
* The episode was written by Damien Lindelof, a co-creator of ''Series/{{Lost}}'', and features Terry O'Quinn as the voice of Professor Mystery and a polar bear that turns out to be Lawrence from another dimension.

[[AC:The Inator Method]]

[[AC:Tales From the Resistance]]
* When the giant mechanical ants are destroyed, they make the same screaming sound that the ants in ''{{Film/Them}}'' made when they were killed.



[[AC:Spot the Diff]]
* WesternAnimation/KimPossible makes a cameo appearance.

[[AC:Phineas and Ferb Musical Cliptastic Countdown]]
* Major Monogram shouts "Great googly moogly!" Does that make him a Frank Zappa fan? (Who in turn took it from a doo-wop single, "Stranded In The Jungle" by The Vibrations.)

[[AC:Phineas and Ferb Christmas Vacation!]]
* During the opening for "Phineas and Ferb's Christmas Vacation", you can see the kids getting a yeti to decorate a Christmas tree, a likely reference to the ending of the classic Christmas special ''WesternAnimation/RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer''.
** Near the beginning, when Phineas is defending the existence of Santa, his evidence references in turn the Patterson Bigfoot footage, the Loch Ness "surgeon's photo", and the ShroudOfTurin.
** During the montage of everyone decorating the town, Ferb is seen imitating [[Franchise/SpiderMan a certain web-slinger]] while stringing up lights.
** During the credits, a blink-and-you'll-miss-it scene shows everyone recreating the dancing scene from the ''WesternAnimation/ACharlieBrownChristmas''.

[[AC:Phineas and Ferb: Summer Belongs To You!]]
* Near the beginning, the music while Phineas, Ferb, and the gang are looking at the giant map is an exact quote of a song from ''WesternAnimation/ChickenRun''.
--->'''Phineas:''' [[Film/TheBluesBrothers It's 4:00, we're in a baguette boat, with a fuel tank full of snail grease.]]
* When Phineas gives Candace a rousing speech in Paris in "Summer Belongs to You" he paraphrases one of the most famous lines in ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'',
--->'''Phineas:''' ...Which means you believed in us.\\
'''Ferb:''' And we believe in you.\\
'''Phineas:''' And therefore, through the transitive property of belief, you ''do'' believe in yourself!
* And ''yet again'', while in Paris and trying to get Phineas's attention, Isabella says, [[Film/{{Casablanca}} "We'll always have giant plastic baguels"]].
* Still again, an [[Film/BladeRunner origami unicorn]] is used as a throwaway gag.
* The jumping robot at the beginning gets all René Descartes when it says "I jump, therefore I am". Bonus points are gained for when Phineas meantioned earlier that the robot gained self awareness.
* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MgEbs4vu4_w J-Pop (Welcome to Tokyo)]]" features references to {{Caramelldansen Vid}}s and [=LeekSpin=] (specifically, the [[Music/{{Vocaloid}} Miku Hatsune]] version of Ievan Polka).
* At one point, Major Monogram says "Cheese and crackers!", which may be a reference to ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible''.
* When Phineas is digging out the sand, he takes out a [[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants sponge and a starfish]] that was buried in the sand.
* Given a [[VideoGame/KingdomHearts358DaysOver2 certain other role]] of Alyson Stoner's and said role's [[WatchingTheSunset hobby]], could we have ActorAllusion going on here?
* The whole plot is based primarily on ''Literature/AroundTheWorldInEightyDays,'' with everything depending on a wager to circumnavigate the world in a set amount of time and the race coming down the last possible minute.
* When Phineas is trying to explain the concept behind their trip and Buford doesn't get it:
-->'''Buford:''' "No, no; [[StarWars don't try to confuse me with your sorcerer's ways]]

[[AC:A Phineas and Ferb Family Christmas]]

[[AC:Where's Perry?]]
* Doofensmirtz asks if the plane him and Major Monogram are on board has a life-boat on board, a stealth reference to ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheTempleOfDoom''.

[[AC:Phineas and Ferb Musical Cliptastic Countdown Hosted by Kelly Osbourne]]

[[AC:Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel]]
* Ferb refers to the S.H.E.D. (a shed that's bigger on the inside) as using "a little [[Series/DoctorWho British Science Fiction technology.]]"
* When Dr. Doofenschmirtz meets the Red Skull, he asks him if his head bursts into flame or is he thinking of [[Comicbook/GhostRider that other guy]].
* Spider-Man and Hulk both confuse Perry with ComicBook/HowardTheDuck.
* When Candace is expelled from S.H.E.D., Buford says you shouldn't get Phineas angry, "you wouldn't like him when he's angry," as she slowly walks away to a soundalike of the music from ''Series/TheIncredibleHulk''.
* As the heroes get their powers back and prepare for battle, the camera does the 360-degree turnaround shot from ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', with Spider-Man and Perry the Platypus standing in for Hawkyeye and Captain America.
** Hulkjeet saves Iron Man from a fall to his death in a moment reminiscent of that same film, after which Iron Man paraphrases one of his famous lines from the movie as, "We've got a Baljeet."
* Creator/StanLee, granddaddy of the Marvel Universe and a frequent TheCameo in movies starring Marvel characters, voices an InkSuitActor version of himself as a hot dog vendor just like in the ''Film/XMen1'' movie.
* The final shot, as the gang walks away from a trash can where Perry has discarded his superhero disguise, is a copy of a famous image from ''Amazing ComicBook/SpiderMan #50'', in which the wallcrawler did the same thing.

[[AC:Phineas and Ferb Save Summer]]
* "Oh, great. [[Film/LordOfTheRings They have a cave troll.]]"
* When the characters are [[http://img4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20140610053329/phineasandferb/images/8/8c/Doctor_Who_reference_large.jpg in the UK]] in ''Summer all over the World'', they not only manage to reference Music/TheBeatles' Rooftop Concert, but the gang are also wearing outfits inspired by ''Series/DoctorWho'' characters. [[http://img1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20140530004006/phineasandferb/images/c/c6/Phineas_and_Ferb_doctors_concept_art.jpg Concept art]] shows that the reference was going to be even ''more'' explicit.

[[AC:Phineas and Ferb Star Wars]]

[[AC: Night of the Living Pharmacists]]
* Plays off the title of Creator/GeorgeARomero's famous 1968 zombie film ''Film/{{Night of the Living Dead|1968}}'' for laughs.
** Even better, Romero voices the reporter on the street, Don Adaded (which sounds like 1978's ''Film/{{Dawn of the Dead|1978}}'').
* Simon Pegg and Nick Frost do their ''Film/ShaunOfTheDead'' characters Shaun and Ed in this episode.
* A callback to ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'' in one scene where Phineas, Ferb, Candace, Isabella and Vanessa do the Janet-Dr. Scott-Janet-Brad-Rocky gag. Small wonder Creator/RichardOBrien, who created the film (and stage show) is Lawrence's voice actor.
* A reference to Sir Francis Bacon when both Buford and Doof make comments to "shaking bacon". Bacon died studying how meat would be in a frozen state.
** Another callback to ''Film/DieHard'' when both Buford and Doof yell "Yippie-Ki-Yay!" to taunt the "mindless repulsive pharmacists". Each time, Doof says in a TakeThat moment that it's a callback to something he didn't even hear.
* Buford makes a couple to ''Film/{{Aliens}}'', doing his best Corporal Hudson impression, such as "Game over, man! Game over!" And later, ranting about "They're gonna come in here, they're gonna come in here!"
* Isabella rattling the trap door to the Fireside Girl's cabin is a reference to the original ''Film/{{The Evil Dead|1981}}''.
* Candace says that she's gotten all the [[Film/{{Zombieland}} Cardio]] she needs for a lifetime.
* Ferb quotes [[Film/{{Ghostbusters 1984}} Egon Spengler]] when he says that he's "terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought."
* The ending [[spoiler: in which Danville is enclosed by a large wall that keeps the Doofenshmirtz zombies out]] is a clear reference to ''Manga/AttackOnTitan''.
** Alternately it might be a shout out to Land of the Dead, which is about a walled city to keep the zombies out.
* At one point Carl refers to Perry as the Omega Platypus, a reference to the 1971 film adaptation of ''Literature/IAmLegend'', ''Film/TheOmegaMan''.
* When a random citizen says 'Are you insinuating that my clothes are alive' it may be a reference to ''Anime/KillLaKill''.
* C'mon! Isn't anybody going to point out the truckload of ''Film/WorldWarZ'' shout-outs?!!

[[AC:The End of Summer]]
* One of the sneak peeks released shows the gang and Candace [[spoiler:in a washed-out and empty city with time-holes opening up. Dialogue indicates that they have to get back into the flow of time;]] this is reminiscent of the Creator/StephenKing novel ''Literature/TheLangoliers''.
* The effect of the Do-Over-Inator bears a striking resemblance to the 12th Doctor's new title sequence for ''Series/DoctorWho''.
** The holes in space/time that cause people to forget the people or things sucked through are similar to an overarching story arch for the [[Series/DoctorWho Eleventh Doctor.]]
*** Although that plot line has also been done in ''Franchise/StarTrek'' and in ''Series/{{Eureka}}'', so it's hard to know which one they are making a shout out too.
* One of the things to be sucked through the holes in time during the GroundhogDayLoop are [[Film/GroundhogDay the groundhogs]].

''Mom! Phineas and Ferb are editing Wiki/TVTropes!''
