"Back in Gimmelshtump", sung by Heinz Doofenshmirtz, takes place after Doofenshmirtz explains his scheme to Perry the Platypus in the episode, "Rollercoaster: The Musical!".
- Dr. Doofenshmirtz: I know you're probably expecting some tragic backstory to explain why I want to reverse the rotation of the Earth. But I'm not gonna go there, ya know why?...well, I'll tell ya!
- Back in Gimmelshtump!
- I always had to keep it real
- Cause when you grow up in Gimmelshtump
- Young Heinz: Your childhood is less than ideal!
- Heinz: So I don't plan on how I'll crawl my way out of a gutter
- No I don't!
- When people ask me what I mean, I say
- Di-Di-Di-Do I stutter!
- Heinz: But I'm no longer a hater
- Cause I got an Inator
- And a over-complicated scheme
- I get a couple of checks
- Every month from my Ex
- So I can finance my coming regime!
- And though my past was a wreck
- I won't let it affect
- My aspirations to cause mass hysteria
- Cause I'm as sure as can be
- That it's my destiny
- To be the ruler of the Tri-State Area!
- In a similar theme to History of Rock, more than one genre of music was heard.
- It is unknown how Young Heinz knew he was going to sing this song and say "Your childhood is less than ideal".
- Balloony and Norm can be seen in the background.
- Dr. Doofenshmirtz calls Charlene Doofenshmirtz his ex-wife again ("Hail Doofania!", "Thaddeus and Thor", and "Finding Mary McGuffin").
- The Background Dancer says she's "picking up my kid from school", while this episode takes place in summer (although this could mean summer school).
- The background dancers Doofenshmirtz is seen singing in front of constantly change between parts, including the same dancers from "Hey Ferb".
- Dr. Doofenshmirtz is wearing a WWI era German helmet, the pickelhaub.
- Dr. Doofenshmirtz's hat's stripe color is red, but in his early songs, it is colored green, except in Charmed Life, where it is colored purple.
- This song proves that Dr. Doofenshmirtz is from a country like Germany.
- In the album version of the song, the line "Your childhood is less than ideal!" is sung differently in a higher pitch, probably to make clear that was the young Heinz. (In the Spanish version also changed but less high pitched)
- This is the second time Doofenshmirtz has removed his turtleneck and lab coat ("Are You My Mummy?").
- This is Doofenshmirtz's last musical performance in Season 2. His next one wasn't for 14 episodes, until With a Dart in the season 3 episode "Bad Hair Day".
- Doofenshmirtz has a big belly, which means he still hasn't lost those ten pounds. ("Fireside Girl Jamboree")
- The tune of the second part of the song is similar to Impress My Professor.
- His backup dancers haven't seemed to change much but how he pays them enough is unknown.
- The background of a part on the rock part shows Balloony.
- This is the second song of Dr. Doofenshmirtz that starts with the word "back", the first was Impress My Professor in "Oil on Candace".
