After eight years of endless summer, Disney Channel’s hit animated TV series Phineas and Ferb will come to a close. To mark the end of an era, Disney Channel and Disney XD will air a special finale aptly titled “Last Day of Summer” and will run a mammoth 73 hour marathon featuring every single episode to date. It’s a proper sendoff, if we may say so.
Phineas and Ferb premiered on Disney Channel way back in 2007 and became an instant smash success. The recurring gags and punchlines such as “Where’s Perry?” and “What’cha doing?” have found their way into popular culture. Phineas and Ferb is arguably Disney’s most beloved animated TV series of all time. The show is also known for featuring musical numbers in each episode, which only adds to its lasting appeal (“Gitchee Gitchee Goo,” anyone?). The show has won three Emmy Awards and grown a multitude of devoted fans of all ages.
Although the show will end, fans of Perry the Platypus and Dr. Doofenshmirtz can rest easily. The creators of the show, Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh are creating a new Disney XD series. The series will debut in 2017, is titled Mikey Murphy’s Law, and is centered around the “great-great-great-great grandson” of the namesake of Murphy’s Law. Also, a special focusing on Perry will debut later this year. It will be titled The O.W.C.A. Files and will center around Perry’s fellow animal agents.
The “Last Day of Summer” finale and marathon begins June 9 (8 pm) and ends June 12 with the special series finale. The finale will air on Disney XD and simulcast on Disney Channel.
