Audiences who missed the sneak preview of Disney Channel’s new animated series Phineas and Ferb a few weeks ago get another chance to sample the show on Friday, Sep. 28 at 10:45 p.m. The 2D animated series is co-created and exec produced by Dan Povemnire (Family Guy) and Jeff ‘Swampy’ Marsh (The Simpsons).
The first preview of the show (aired in conjunction with the premiere of High School Musical 2) received Disney Channel’s second-largest viewership ever in Total Viewers (10.8 million) and Kids 6-11 (4.2 million) and tied Hannah Montana as the second-most watched episode in Tween 9-14 (4.2 million).
The new episode (‘Lawn Gnome Beach Party of Terror’) finds the brilliant Phineas and his resourceful stepbrother Ferb creating a tropical beach paradise in their own backyard on the hottest day of the summer. Meanwhile, Perry the Platypus (aka Agent P) must stop evil Dr. Doofenshmirtz from stealing all the lawn gnomes in the tri-state area, leaving thousands of gardens unprotected.
The regular voice cast includes Vincent Martella as Phineas, Thomas Sangster and Ferb, Ashley Tisdale as Candace, Caroline Rhea as Mom, Richard O’Brien as Dad, Mitchel Musso as Jeremy and Dee Baker as Perry the Platypus. The series will make its official debut on the channel this January.
