If you haven’t seen the Disney cartoon, Phineas and Ferb before, a little intro…
Phineas and Ferb are brothers, stepbrothers actually. Ferb’s Dad married Phineas’ Mom. They have a sister, Candace. The show takes place over summer break, and the brothers set out each day to do something spectacular. These spectacular things often are truly amazing such as the time they built a roller coaster through the entire town. Mom and Dad are completely oblivious to their doings, which chaps Candace’s ass something fierce. They have a pet platypus, Perry, who is actually a secret agent and spends his days escaping the boys and trying to take down the evil Dr. Doofenschmirtz.
For a children’s cartoon, it is incredibly well done with writing that is smart enough that an adult, like myself, can watch without wanting to jump out a window of a tall building like pretty much every other cartoon geared towards children. It is actually quite entertaining and available on Netflix so if you were looking for another show to get sucked into, Phineas and Ferb is a good one.
All that being said, why on Earth am I writing about Phineas and Ferb here on Grizzly Bomb? Well, here’s the thing. Phineas and Ferb are teaming up with our favorite Marvel characters in Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel.
[box_dark]In Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel, Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor and Hulk stand powerless after being struck by Dr. Doofenshmirtz’s power-draining “inator.” Once the Marvel Super Villains – Red Skull, Whiplash, Venom and M.O.D.O.K. – find out that Dr. Doofenshmirtz is responsible for robbing the Super Heroes of their powers, they seek him out and together create mayhem in Danville. Meanwhile, Phineas and Ferb do everything they can to restore the Super Heroes’ powers before the evil villains take over the world[/box_dark]
Despite it being well over three years since Walt Disney Co. purchased Marvel in January of 2010, this is the first time the two franchises have met up on screen.
Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel will air on August 16th at 8 EST on Disney and Disney XD.
