When my youngest son, Houston, started watching Phineas and Ferb, I never thought I would be spending a day with the creators, to celebrate an end of an era. However, through the grace of God I received a lifetime experience, that I can not wait to share with my future grandkids, as they watch reruns. Before, I go into the story, I just want you to know Disney/Pixar, Disney Channel and Disney XD sent me to Los Angeles on an all-expenses-paid press trip, in exchange for my coverage of this and others, all opinions are my own.
As part of the Inside Out Event, 25 wonderful women and I were invited to celebrate the final episode of Phineas and Ferb with the shows Creators and Executive Producers Dan Povenmire & Jeff “Swampy” Marsh.
We started the day with a private screening the 1-hour special Phineas and Ferb “Last Day of Summer” which airs June 12, 2015 on The Disney Channel and Disney XD at 9 pm EST. My youngest son grew up watching the cartoon, so viewing the final episode was bittersweet for me. The story ends with a strong message about family, and you are going to want to watch it with the kids.
After the screening, we joined Dan Povenmire, Jeff “Swampy” Marsh Phineas and Ferb for a picnic, of course. The food was delicious, I loved the barbecued brisket and the corn bread, it reminded me of my moms. The experience was surreal and I just kept thinking how much of a blessing to be a part of this event.
Before we left to do our interview with Kyle MacLachlan voice of “Dad” in INSIDE OUT, I was able to grab a selfie with the show’s creators.
Phineas and Ferb “Last Day of Summer“
The summer season is coming to a close and it’s Candace’s last chance to bust her brothers. She is quickly foiled, but is presented with an opportunity to redo the day when she sets off Dr. Doofenshmirtz’s Do-Over-Inator, which results in other consequences like rips in the space-time continuum, the shortening of days and the disappearance of her brothers.
