Perry has been found, and it could be at a Subway right near you!
Subway is following up it’s “Wreck it Ralph” promotion with Disney by pairing up with them once again for “Phineas and Ferb“. The new kids meal promotion will feature around the Disney Channel hit and feature the show’s characters on six reusable Fresh Fit for Kids bags. Each bag will include a download code for a “Phineas and Ferb” episode, app or song.
The promotion will run thru April 14th and will be available at Subway’s 25,000 locations.
“Phineas and Ferb” returns on March 1st with new epidsodes. March 2nd by the way is “Platypus Day”. Disney Channel, Disney XD and Radio Disney will promote the new episodes, debuting a “O.W.C.A” disco anthem, inspired by “Y.M.C.A.,” that includes two music videos with group choreography performed by Disney Channel and Disney XD stars. O.W.C.A. stands for Organization Without a Cool Acronym from “Phineas and Ferb.”
“Phineas and Ferb” creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh will also co-host a Top 30 Countdown and “Take Over” of Radio Disney on Feb. 24 and March 1.

In anticipation of the all-new Phineas and Ferb: Animal Agents—releasing to DVD on February 26, 2013—I had the opportunity to interview the show’s creators and co-executive producers, Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh.
Since it was a phone interview, they began by identifying themselves, so I would know who was speaking when. I told them if they would just speak in character, I’d have no trouble…so they greeted me as Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz and Major Frances Mongram! That set the tone for the very friendly conversation that follows.
Here’s what the guys had to say about the show in general, the new production, and what’s in the works.
JW: Good afternoon! Thanks for speaking with me today! My kids and my husband and I are all huge Phineas and Ferb fans, and it’s great to have this chance to talk to you. I have read that it took you guys 16 years of pitching the show to various producers before Disney picked it up? Is that so?
P&M: Yeah, it was about 13 years before someone finally took a look at it, and then another couple years of negotiating and working out the details before it actually aired, so yeah, about 15 or 16 years total—1993 to 2008.
