mom! phineas and ferb are making a title sequence...

Indeed, Povenmire and Jeff Marsh incorporate sophisticated one-liners that would once provoke winces from network executives, like the one about Existentialist Wacky Pack trading cards, in which one character remarks to the other, "I'll trade you two Nietzsche for a Sartre."

"They'd say, 'Is that joke too old for our audience?' " Povenmire said. "And we'd say, 'We don't care as long as that joke doesn't make the kids change the channel. There's a joke coming for them in five seconds. We're playing to the adults in the room.' "

The LA Times reports that "Phineas and Ferb" is about to have the full Disney marketing machine behind it, with more episodes, a full line of merchandise and maybe even a movie.

Two thumbs up from the Sippey household -- we (all of us) love the show; it's fantastic. If you haven't watched it yet, you should. Because if Disney has anything to do with it, you will be watching it soon, so you might as well get a head start.
