** In "How We Found Your Sun", it is revealed that the Propulsions found Earth by picking up a radio signal that was playing a 1950s rock 'n' roll song called "Jet Propulsion".

-->''Jet Propulsion, he found our star. Jet Propulsion, we met him hot. I'm on fire, baby give me some room. E=[=Mc2=]''

* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' has an odd example. While the song doesn't come up, the stuff mentioned/shown in the theme does. They've checked "finding a Dodo" off of a list with several things mentioned in the theme, Buford one time complains that they should have given a monkey a shower (which they actually did early on), and "Painting the Continent" appeared in one of their first episodes ever.
** They eventually make up for this in the BigDamnMovie - namely, the song "Summer (Where Do We Begin?)" briefly segues into the opening theme.

They've checked "finding a Dodo" off of a list with several things wild activities mentioned in the theme, lyrics or shown onscreen, but direct humming/singing of the song is rare. For example, in "Last Train to Bustville", Ferb takes out a list with items like "Frankenstein's brain" and "Climb Eiffel Tower" and checks off "Find Dodo bird". Buford one time complains that they should have given is liable to [[BreakingTheFourthWall break the fourth wall]] about it; he'd much rather give a monkey a shower (which they actually did early on), (which, for the record, they've already done) than build a robot dog, and "Painting just mumbles "main title, whatever" when Phineas and Ferb show off the Continent" appeared nanobots they've created.

** In their MayTheFarceBeWithYou [[WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerbStarWars special]], they appropriately get a ''Franchise/StarWars'' spin: an instrumental version of a few lines plays as Phineas and Ferb's speeder horn, and they tell their mother that they plan to give a Bantha a shower later that day. They receive their CallToAdventure as they [[BrickJoke return home from said Bantha-cleaning.]]
** "Doof 101", the very rare episode set during the school year, has Doofenshmirtz point out that "There's 261 days 'til next summer vacation".



* Played with in ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'': the alternate Weirdmageddon version of the main theme song is just the standard one with the main characters (Dipper, Mabel, Soos, Grunkle Stan, and Wendy) replaced with [[spoiler:Bill and the henchmaniacs]], and the scenes of Gravity Falls replaced with [[spoiler:upwards-falling [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar red waterfalls]], a giant murderous Paul Bunyan, the few survivors huddled around a campfire, and so on]]. But then the final title screen has Creator/AlexHirsch's name replaced with [[spoiler:Bill's]], implying that TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou. [[spoiler:Given Bill's reality-warping powers, this isn't too far-fetched.]]
