Dr. Doofenshmirtz hasn't really seemed to have much of a problem with funding his plans for tri-state area domination before, but it seems as the alimony from his ex-wife isn't covering it anymore, as next month he plans to go to professionals for help. Must be the economy. Or the fact that his plans keep being foiled by a platypus.
Shark Tank, which has aired on ABC since 2009 (adapted from a Japanese concept called Dragon's Den which itself has various international versions), has given would-be inventors an outlet to show off their often bizarre inventions to the "Sharks", a group of tycoons who are willing to invest in the proposals that catch their eye. In a clever bit of corporate synergy of the sort Disney has made famous, Dr. Doofens…Read more >
The third annual Platypus Day celebration is upon us. Dubbed "National Platypus Day" this year (which I'm assuming means that Agent P was able to pull some strings after making friends with the First Lady during last year's celebration, this year's celebrations include a tie-in with a chain who has recently (and ludicrously) come under fire for some accounting problems in terms of sandwich size (which I'm blaming on Dr. Doofenshmirtz), a new take on a disco classic, and two new episodes that will pit Perry against an Australian platypus hunter and force him to reunite with a Canadian human agent whom he's not exactly on good terms with. Official press release follows.

Today, Majesco Entertainment, the makers of the Cooking Mama series as well as other popular video games, announced today their collaboration with Disney on a game based on the Phineas and Ferb franchise. No details have been announced as of yet, but here's hoping the game is somewhere more along the line of the movie tie-in game than the DS games. I'll be sure to keep up with developments as they, um, develop. Official press release follows.

Although the Internet has played host to a number of people claiming to be Drusselstein's finest evil scientist by default (or perhaps a number of rogue copies still out and about), the real Dr. Doofenshmirtz has been so far too intent on his plans to conquer the tri-state area to join the social networking field. Until now, that is. Last month, a Disney-run authorized Twitter account, @DoofDaily, gave the good evil doctor a place to give his thoughts on Internet trends as only he can. As you can see from his tweets, however, his ramblings more often than not get cut off by Twitter's 140-character limit- which perhaps isn't surprising given his tendency to ramble.
Perhaps YouTube is a better place for his signature style of commentary. Over a…Read more >

With the holiday season upon us and a new year on the horizon (unless the Mayans or Dr. Doofenshmirtz do something about it), this is usually the time of year where we reflect on the 12 months that have passed and prepare for a new year filled with opportunities and plans that will ultimately fail (of course, some of us will have more of the latter than others). Sadly, it's somewhat more difficult to do so than it has been in previous years due to the recent tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut that left 26 dead, 20 of whom were students aged 6 and 7. Perhaps those most affected were the over 400 students of the school. In January, school will reconvene for the…Read more >
