"Perry's Hat" is a song in the episode "The Remains of the Platypus". It is the first song in the episode by sequence and the second chronologically. It is heard as Perry's fedora, which Carl had lost grip of in the midst of scaling Doofenshmirtz Evil Incorporated, drifts around Danville in the atmospheric current before coming to rest at Linda's feet.
Perry's hat, floats on the wind
I wonder where it is going?
Is there a head, it will anoint
Is this herring red or a plot point?
- A "herring red", or "red herring", is a clue which is intended to be misleading, or distracting from the actual issue.
- Radiohead - the song sounds remarkably similar to English rock band Radiohead's Creep.
- Forrest Gump - Perry's hat floats around Danville just as the feather floats in Forrest Gump. Forrest himself even makes a cameo sitting on the iconic bench waiting for the bus, just as he does in the film.
