As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end, and sadly, Phineas and Ferb is one of them. After an unprecedented eight years of adventures, the Disney/ABC Television Group officially announced the series is wrapping up, but also laid the groundwork for the future.
As reported by various outlets, including TVLine, GeekDad, and The Hollywood Reporter, Disney XD is set to run a 73-hour marathon of every Phineas and Ferb episode (which, if you're counting - which apparently Disney/ABC is - is 126 half-hours, five hour-long specials, and the TV movie Across the Second Dimension) starting on June 9 at 8pm Eastern and Pacific. The marathon will cap on both Disney Channel and Disney XD with the final episode - appropriately titled "Last Day o…Read more >
Almost here Phineas and Ferb: Star Wars is. Today, Disney announced the release date as well as some additional details for the long-awaited second crossover of the Boys of Perpetual Summer with an extended Disney universe (not to be confused with the Star Wars Extended Universe - or Star Wars Legends as it's now called since every tie-in media from now on is considered canon. Wait, does that include this special?). The information was first reported by the Hollywood Reporter. Official press release follows.

Summer has always been Phineas and Ferb's time to shine (although in their case they've perpetually had one for seven years straight). After a long drought, the boys are back just in time for summer with two months of new episodes on Disney XD (which Disney seems to be positioning as their new home for animated series and blue robot cats) filled with guest stars and other such nonsense including two hour-long specials, one of which is the highly-anticipated Star Wars special (poster seen at right). Press release follows...

Dan Povenmire, whom as most readers of this wiki probably know is the co-creator and co-executive producer of Phineas and Ferb, the voice of Dr. Doofenshmirtz, and so many other things that I would have no room for the rest of this blog if I were to list them, is welcoming a new addition to his non-animated family, as his sister Tiana (the namesake for Aunt Tiana from the episode "Candace's Big Day") will be having a new baby boy named Sullivan in December. Unfortunately, this is not as happy an occasion as it should be, as Sullivan will be born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, a rare condition which affects approximately 1,000 babies born every year in which the left side of the heart is underdeveloped during pregnancy, making it diff…Read more >
Yet another one of Phineas and Ferb's big plans has mysteriously vanished into thin air: Exhibitor Relations Company, which tracks the release dates and box office grosses of the American film industry, has reported that today Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture made a minor change to its theatrical release schedule, dropping the film adaptation of Phineas and Ferb that was previously set for an unspecified 2014 release. This move was also confirmed by Deadline Hollywood.
As disheartening as this circumstance is, I'm not really surprised by it, as not much has been announced on the feature film front ever since it was originally announced and later had its release date moved back (it was originally supposed to have been released last month). A…Read more >
