"Perry the Platypus" is a background theme song played as Agent P embarks on a mission to stop Dr. Doofenshmirtz. It was mostly run in small fragments until "One Good Scare Ought to Do It!" when it was run in the form of a full song with a montage. It was heavily voted for as a favorite to be showcased in "Phineas and Ferb Musical Cliptastic Countdown" but did not make the final cut.

He's a semi-aquatic egg-layin' mammal of action.
(Doo-bee-doo-bee-doo-bah, doo-bee-doo-bee-doo-bah)
He's a furry little flatfoot who'll never flinch from a fra-ee-ay-ee-ay.
He's got more than just mad skill,

Well he's lookin' real sharp in his 1940s fedora.
(Doo-bee-doo-bee-doo-bah, doo-bee-doo-bee-doo-bah)
He's got an iron will, nerves of steel, and several other metal-themed attributes.
His fur is watertight.
And he's always up for a fight.
So when evil hears this sound it shakes in its boots.
(Perry chatters)

He's Perry, Perry the Platypus
Perry, Perry the Platypus

He's got more than just mad skill.
He's got a beaver tail and a bill.
And the women swoon whenever they hear him say...
(Perry chatters and women swoon)

He's Perry (Perry), Perry the Platypus
Yeah, Perry (Perry), Perry the Platypus
Talkin' 'bout Perry

Major: I said you could call him Agent P

Background Information

Errors

  • When Perry is beating Doofenshmirtz with his own robot, the second time he doesn't even hit the button, but Doofenshmirtz is hit anyway.
  • In Phineas and Ferb and the Temple of Juatchadoon, when the song is sung, Isabella is seen trapped in a cage with Phineas, Ferb and Candace, despite the fact that she had been let out of the cage before the song by Doofenshmirtz, before being pushed into a pit. Moreover, as the song comes to an end, she is seen in the pit, with her mother.

Variations

Since its introduction, the short version of the theme song ("Dooby, dooby, doo-ba") has had many different versions:

  • Does This Duckbill Make Me Look Fat?: The theme music stalls multiple times as Perry in Candace's body repeatedly gets stuck going down a tube. In addition, a parody of Perry's normal theme song, "Perry the Teenage Girl", is also featured.
  • Ready for the Bettys: When Phineas and Ferb accidentally find Perry's lair and temporarily become secret agents, the theme song is changed to repetitions of "Phineas and Ferb", sung in the same style.
  • The Best Lazy Day Ever: When Agent P is struck by the Slow-Motion-Inator, his theme song slows down as well.
  • Bowl-R-Ama Drama: The "Perry the Platypus" part is changed to "Herman the Hedgehog" after the character pops out of the pipe.
  • Got Game?: After Agent P walks down a very long flight of stairs and sits down in the chair, the people singing his theme song also sound like they are worn out.
  • Hail Doofania!: When Perry cannot enter his lair due to the protective collar he is wearing, the song keeps repeating every time Perry tried to fit himself in the secret passage.
  • Put That Putter Away and Hide and Seek: Due to Perry being tired, both his entrance and the singers sound sleepy.
  • Oh, There You Are, Perry: Perry's theme song is used as a musical access code, played out when Perry steps on the stones in the yard.
  • The Chronicles of Meap: Perry's anthem begins playing as he approaches a lair entrance, but when he comes across Meap, he hides his hat and the music stops. Meap and Perry have a "conversation" ("Meap!" "chatter" "Meap!" "chatter" "Meap!"), then Meap walks away. Perry puts his hat back on and the music continues from where it stopped.
  • Phineas and Ferb's Quantum Boogaloo: The song is played very slowly and has a big gasp between it, as if sung by old men, because Perry is very old.
  • Phineas and Ferb Musical Cliptastic Countdown: The song is sung by the studio audience.
  • Isabella and the Temple of Sap: Perry does not have a B-plot, but it is revealed that Pinky the Chihuahua's theme song even as an agent is mariachi band music.
  • Atlantis: Perry goes to the deck and there's a man playing a guitar and singing "Dooby Dooby Doo-Wah" .
  • Phineas and Ferb Christmas Vacation!: The "Dooby Dooby Doo-Ba" is replaced with a more festive "Fa-La-La-La-La-La", as taken from the Christmas carol "Deck the Halls".
  • Suddenly Suzy: Carl plays the tune with his single facial hair. Major Monogram found it disgusting and fascinating at the same time.
  • Moon Farm: After Perry was zapped by the Moisturesuckinator, his theme sounded as if it were "dried out" just like Perry.
  • Phineas and Ferb Interrupted: Heinz Doofenshmirtz sang the first line of the song in his bathroom.
  • Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension: Perry the Platyborg's theme is heard every time he is seen when he's an evil cyborg just like Perry when he is a secret agent but in a lower scale.
  • Skiddley Whiffers: Perry plays the tune with a guitar to enter his lair.
  • Doof Dynasty: A version of the theme was played as Perry leaps away from the mechanical dragon and the kids eject from the giant terracotta warrior.
  • Phineas and Ferb and the Temple of Juatchadoon: Showgirls accompany Perry in his entrance, and sing 'in a fez' in the background.
