A good show is a good show. It doesn’t matter if it’s intended for children or for adults, if a show has strong writing and good stories it’s good to go. Take Phineas and Ferb for example; a show that is not only smart but pretty damned funny at the same time. And it’s a children’s show on Disney. The show is finally coming to an end on June 12 in an episode titled Last Day of Summer and while this may be a blow for fans it’s not all bad. The creators of Phineas and Ferb are moving on to their next show set for Disney XD titled Mikey Murphy’s Law.
Creators Jeff “Swampy” Marsh and Dan Povenmire will team up again for Mikey Murphy’s Law which is set to debut in 2017. The show follows Mikey, the fictional great-great-great-great-great grandson of the person that coined the term Murphy’s Law.
“Dan and Swampy are two of the most respected and proven show creators in the animation series business,” said Disney XD General Manager Marc Buhaj. “They are incredibly gifted storytellers who have a track record of creating smart, original and relatable characters that are universally appealing to both kids and families. It’s a coup for Disney XD to continue working with this talented duo on their latest creation, ‘Mikey Murphy’s Law.”
While not much is known about this new show it shouldn’t come to much of a surprise since it’s still got a long way to go. Phineas and Ferb however will still play through repeats after the show ends and an upcoming one hour special focusing on Perry the Platypus is set to debut this fall.
