Phineas And Ferb Biography
The show is the fifth Disney Channel show to have more than 65 episodes. The first was That's So Raven, the second was Kim Possible, the third was The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, and the fourth was Hannah Montana.
Creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff "Swampy" Marsh worked together on the Nickelodeon series Rocko's Modern Life. Phineas and Ferb was conceived after Povenmire sketched a triangular boy - the blueprint for the titular Phineas - in a restaurant. Povenmire and Marsh developed the series concept together and pitched to networks for 16 years before securing a run on the Disney Channel.
The series is also known for its musical numbers, which have appeared in every episode since the first-season "Flop Starz". Disney's managers particularly enjoyed the episode's song, "Gitchee, Gitchee Goo", and requested that one appear in each subsequent episode. The show's creators write and record each number, and vary musical tempo depending on each song's dramatic use.
