What does it take to animate a cartoon? Specifically, the extremely popular Disney Channel series, ‘Phineas and Ferb’? Just sit back, relax for a few minutes, and let series creators Jeff ‘Swampy’ Marsh and Dan Povenmire
tell rap you all about it.
This exceptionally funny and quite detailed video takes fans from start to finish in the animation process for the show, featuring plenty of actual footage from the Walt Disney Studios and Walt Disney Animation Studios, where the duo routinely ‘flash their badge’ and demonstrate how they roll, at 24 frames per second.
