The Walt Disney Studios has updated its movie release schedule for announced movies releasing over the next couple of years. While most of the movies haven’t changed, there are a few that have moved, and we now know when Ant Man will arrive.
Anyone who listens closely will know that I am a fan of the cartoons, dating back to the days when I would come home from school to Woody Woodpecker and Scooby-Doo’s Mystery Movies on Channel 41. To this day, I still number Danger Mouse among my favorite television programs, but the more recent cartoons have things going for them as well. I still can’t believe that the surrealism of Higglytown Heroes never had a brony-like stoner fanbase, while the genius of Phineas and Ferb is undeniable, starting all sorts of fascinating trains of thought about life, science, and the can-do spirit.
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as Ferb would, “…”) reveals that there’s a platypus controlling it, asking:
Would you rather be a Phineas (the frenetic, irrepressible idea man) or a Ferb (the reserved scientific guy who makes it all possible)?
With Disney’s purchase of Marvel some three years ago, fans have been waiting for a cross-over between each companies wide range of properties. Coming next summer will be the first such event broadcast to your television screen, and I don’t think it was possible to make a better choice.
Phineas Flynn and Ferb Fletcher really know how to make the most of any summer day. The stepbrothers have some of the biggest and baddest adventures in animation, and they are so popular, they even pushed Thor 2′s release date.
But who is the real genius between the two?
I know what we’re going to do today!
When it was announced that Disney was moving ahead with a full length Phineas and Ferb movie to be released in theaters, the one thing that didn’t catch many reader’s attention was the fact the movie was going to be a mix between live action and animation.
Hey! What’cha doin’? It’s that time of the week where go link baiting for eyeballs and click-throughs in an attempt to get more of you to visit the website. Today, it’s another round of guest stars lending their voices to animated television shows.
If you haven’t seen Disney Channel’s Phineas and Ferb, you are missing out on one of the best produced, best written, best scored, best use of continuity in a series, and really any other category you can think of show. It’s that good. There isn’t a day that goes by that my son and I aren’t rolling on the floor laughing at the antics of two step-brothers and their summer adventures. And every once in a while, I stop and say “That voice sounds familiar… maybe too familiar…”
Fire up your Top Ten-inators, cause I know what we’re going to do today!
(I know what you’re thinking “Aren’t I a little old to be watching a cartoon show?” No. No I’m not.)
