"Phineas and Ferb Christmas Vacation!" was broadcast on several channels during the month of December 2009: Disney Channel, Disney XD, ABC Family and some local ABC affiliates. This marked the first time Phineas and Ferb episodes were seen on ABC Family. While it is customary to edit a movie for the time alloted for a later broadcast on TV, this appears to be the first time that the editing was taken into account while the episode was still being produced, as many of the edits occur in the middle of a scene.
The full version was broadcast on Disney Channel and Disney XD. Differences in what was broadcast on other channels are noted here.
