Comic-Con: Phineas and Ferb

One of the fun aspects of Comic-Con is that you go into panels with certain expectations, but there's always plenty of room for surprises. For example, I went to the "Phineas and Ferb" panel expecting to see the creators and voice cast of that show. Which I did. But what I wasn't expecting was to see Damon Lindelof, co-creator of "Lost," moderating the panel. And since "Lost" events were always difficult to get into, it was nice to finally get a chance to see him.

But of course the real reason I was there was for "Phineas and Ferb." Obviously there were a lot of kids in attendance, so energy was high. The actors had fun popping in and out of character. Watching Dee Bradley Baker perform the Perry the Platypus chatter is somewhat disturbing... in a good way.

Show creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff "Swampy" Marsh prepped the audience for the upcoming "Where's Perry?" cliffhanger season finale. Then Marvel's Jeph Loeb and Joe Quesada stopped by to make the big announcement: next year, "Phineas and Ferb" will be joined in a crossover movie event with "The Avengers." When a new Doofenshmirtz "Inator" inadvertently zaps away the Avengers' superpowers, Phineas and Ferb will help them to get their powers back.
