- One of the promos for the show used Edvard Grieg’s “In the Hall of the Mountain King,” instead of either Richard Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries” or Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s “Romeo and Juliet.”
Milo Murphy's Law includes allusions to Phineas and Ferb:

- In "The Doctor Zone Files" several of the fans in line outside the theater also appeared in the same costume as Finkies or Speckies in "Nerds of a Feather".
- The armored kid with a staff was also at Vanessa's party in "Druselsteinoween".
- In "Smooth Opera-tor" the woman sitting behind and to the left of Melissa, was at the New Year party in "Happy New Year!" and was one of the people Dr. Doofenshmirtz said, "That's what you think" to.
- In "Worked Day", Cavendish has a Danville map when he and Dakota try and make sure a shipment truck full of pistachios make it to the pistachio warehouse.

- In the same episode, before the episode cuts to credits a girl in the background with brown hair and glasses can be seen.
