I was completely unaware of the number one animated series for the past three years among kids and tweens until a few months ago. While in a hotel room in San Antonio, Texas, I had the Disney channel on for Riley while we were grabbing a bite to eat and freshening up.
That's when I saw Phineas and Ferb for the first time. Even though the plot is much too complicated for a toddler, even Riley seemed to find this show entertaining. Well, if you or your children are Phineas and Ferb fans, keep reading to learn more about how Disney is cranking Phineas and Ferb mania to a fever pitch this summer!
Phineas and Ferb is the animated series that follows two stepbrothers, Phineas Flynn and Ferb Fletcher, as they happily set out to conquer boredom and make every day of their 104-day summer vacation count. Throughout the escapades, they're accompanied by Perry the Platypus, their seemingly mindless family pet who, unbeknownst to all, has a double life as suave secret Agent P, deftly battling the evil Dr. Doofenshmirtz to save the world.
Meanwhile, older sister Candace is aghast at her brothers' bold antics and makes it her life's work to tattle on them to Mom and Dad, though somehow she can never seem to catch the boys red-handed.
In the Disney Channel Original Movie, "Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension", Phineas and Ferb go on their biggest journey yet, into another dimension! When the boys finally discover that Perry is in fact a secret agent who battles the forces of evil daily, they join him on a grand adventure that blasts them to another dimension where Dr. Doofenshmirtz has taken over an alternate Tri-State Area.
When they uncover his ploy to travel back to their dimension to take over their Tri-State Area, the gang, as well as their alter-egos, must band together to stop him.
So, how can you see this hair-raising movie for yourself? Be sure to tune in for the premiere of "Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension" on Friday, August 5th (8:00 PM Eastern) on the Disney Channel and Saturday, August 13th (10:oo AM Eastern) on Disney XD.
