“Phineas and Ferb” airs two story segments per episode. This story was paired up with “That’s the Spirit,” another Halloween-themed story. This made up a Halloween special for the program.
Michael J. Fox voices the character of ‘Michael’ who is a werewolf, alluding to his character Scott Howard in Teen Wolf. The character wears a t-shirt with the number 42 on it, which was Scott Howards’s basketball jersey number in Teen Wolf. (And also the answer to life, the universe and everything, in case that matters to you.)
This episode makes blatant references to the Twilight series including the subject matter of Early Evening and the female character’s name of Kristen. Kristen Stewart is the female lead of the Twilight film series.
References are also made to the series “True Blood.” Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer both star in the program and provided voices for the Early Evening segment.
Another horror movie reference is made when Lawrence Fletcher comments on the fact that the horror movie he’s watching contains no rock ‘n’ roll musical numbers. Lawrence is voiced by Richard O’Brien who wrote and starred in The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
