Feature: Phineas and Ferb Agent P and Test Track Makeover
Mark shared three interviews from the Walt Disney World Summer to Remember press event:
Phineas and Ferb's Dan Povenmire, Jeff "Swampy" Marsh and Vincent Martella
Mark interviewed the creators of Phineas and Ferb, as well as the voice of Phineas.
First, Mark asked Dan and Swampy about where the idea for the show came from, and Dan said that the basis was that he and Swampy wanted to have a show that they could do together. Swampy said that the inspiration came from griping about how kids didn't play outside the way they did when he and Dan were kids.
They discussed some of the amazing guest stars that have been on the show (or the spin-off talk show), including Ben Stiller, David Beckham, Taylor Swift, and Slash.
Mark asked a question from The Kid, about how they got the voice of Perry. Swampy and Dan talked about the multi-talented Dee Bradley Baker, and how he came up with a "weird, purring, chirping noise."
Finally Mark posed questions about the new World Showcase Adventure to Swampy, Vincent, and Dan in their alter-ego personas as Major Monogram, Phineas Flynn, and Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz.
Mark couldn't bring himself to talk to Dan, Swampy, and Vincent about the Phineas & Ferb parody we did in Episode 404.
Agent P's World Showcase Adventure with Matt Beiler
Mark talked with Matt Beiler, Associate Show Producer for the Disney Phineas and Ferb: Agent P's World Showcase Adventure. While not as productive as Mark had hoped, he did get some interesting information from Matt, including the fact that Mexico will be the site of Dr. Doofenshmirtz' "Flashbackinator," which will turn everyone's hairstyle back to what it was in the 1980s.
Perry will make a number of appearances, including ziplining across rooftops at the France pavilion, popping out of a pot at Mexico, and escaping from a lamp at the United Kingdom.
Test Track makeover with Trevor Bryant
Trevor Bryant, Show Producer for the Test Track makeover, shared the fact that guests will be using a card to bring their car's design specs along with them through the queue and ride portions of the attraction.
There is a lot of interactivity coming in the attraction, with a possibility for extending the attraction's footprint beyond the berm.
We need more listener feedback, so hit the show notes, the email, the voicemail, Facebook and Twitter!
Mark will be going to Disneyland with his family at the end of August, so keep an eye out for him!
