Interview with Phineas and Ferb Composer Danny Jacob

The Examiner’s Mark Morton has recently managed to catch up with Phineas and Ferb’s music producer and composer Danny Jacob, for an in depth discussion on what goes on behind the Emmy Award-winning Disney show, particularly with regards to the music side.

In the interview, Jacob was asked where he fits in within the names associated with the show’s music, since there’s so many:

“Phineas and Ferb” is a really song-driven show. 90% of the songs are written by Dan [Povenmire, co-creator], “Swampy” [Jeff Marsh, co-creator], and people like Martin [Olson] and Aliki [Theofilopolous Grafft], and other people involved in the show, like storyboard artists.

Jacob also let slip that he gets funny looks from people when he describes the show that he works for, and likens it to another TV show:

[Laughs] I was just listening to myself say all that, and I was like, “Man, I must sound like an idiot. Goats and rabbits are powering electricity to a fictional European country!” Yes, but one of the things I think makes “Phineas and Ferb” so successful…have you ever seen the show “Fringe”? It’s one of my favorite shows out there. It’s almost the same thing as when you try to explain “Fringe”.

Mark’s interview With Danny Jacob also tackled more interesting details about Jacob and Phineas and Ferb, including his background and career before he found his way to the show, the influence of Phineas and Ferb’s music on kids, and many more. You can read the FULL interview at the Examiner.
