Phineas and Ferb

Reddick's biggest project outside of Bowling for Soup is song writing and appearing as the lead singer of the fictional band Love Händel on the television show Phineas and Ferb. It started with Bowling for Soup providing the series' theme song "Today is Gonna Be a Great Day", and later Reddick's character Danny was introduced in the episode "Dude, We're Getting the Band Back Together". Reddick has since written several songs for the show and made a handful of appearances, both as Danny from Love Händel, and once with cartoon versions of the other members of Bowling for Soup performing "Today is Gonna Be a Great Day".

He also co-wrote a few songs on the show, including "Bouncin' Around the World", "Izzy's Got the Frizzies", "Robot Riot" and "Evil for Extra Credit".


Reddick's second recent project outside of Bowling for Soup is for guest appearing and song writing for the third season of Teletoon's original Canadian animated series Wayside. He and his band appear in the third season's Valentine's Day special as a fictionized version of the band singing for the Wayside ball. They also seemed to help Mr. Kidswatter (the principal in the cartoon) defeat Le Chef (a snooty chef) and Ivil Kessau (a European dance instructor). Reddick is also making some music compositions for the show due to production changes, as one of his biggest parts of the show.
