With E3 just around the corner, if we could ask Disney Mobile just one question, it would be ‘whatcha doooooo-in?’ But if we could ask Disney Mobile two questions, the first would be ‘whatcha dooooo-in?’ and the second would be ‘Hey, Where’s My Perry?’
We’re pretty sure both questions (and a whole lot more) will be answered next week, whether we ask them or not, so we’ll just use our handy cutoutthemiddleman-inator and offer up some possible evidence that a ‘Where’s My Water?’ and ‘Phineas and Ferb’ cross-over is about to surface.
It all began innocently enough with a tweet, as it usually does.
To us, that would suggest that everyone’s favorite alligator Swampy has a trick or ’2′ up his sleeve (notice I put ’2′ in quotes to suggest it could possible allude to something — and now we’ve done it ‘
On or about May 26, 2012 (but mostly on), Disney registered WHERESMYPERRY.COM, a clever play on both the ever Phineas catch-phrase (‘Hey, where’s Perry?’) and Swampy’s ‘Where’s My Water?’ but could it simply be coincidence? No. But in case you’re thinking it might be, just like #wheresmywater serves as the official Twitter hashtag for the popular mobile game, one might easily assume that #wheresmyperry would serve as the official hashtag for ‘Where’s My Perry?’ A recent search on the hashtag on Twitter has turned up many hits, all from a user named Andrew Jandas (@jandas1230), an account that appears to exist solely for letting SwampTheGator know his progress (or often lack thereof) in the game using its built-in tweet button.
Recently the account has been posting messages such as the following:
Although the content of the tweet is presumably still under development, the findings are hard to dispute. Linked in the tweet is a picture of a screen from ‘Where’s My Perry?’ featuring level pack, ‘Mission 1: An Agent I Can Trust’ in which the player has ‘tri-gnomed’ the level as opposed to tri-ducking in the original game. In addition, the tweet originates from a Twitter app called ‘WheresMyWater’ just as many of the actual game tweets do and reviewing the user’s twitpic timeline reveal several screens that look more like testing/debugging ones than final product, such as this one.
Only the details (and the game itself) remain to be seen. The tri-gnoming is likely to be an allusion to the second episode of ‘Phineas and Ferb,’ ‘Lawn Gnome Beach Party of Terror,’ in which Agent P/Perry the Platypus is tasked with recovering lawn gnomes stolen by Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz, but whether that theme continues on or each level pack ties into a different episode remains to be seen.
In any case, when E3 rolls around next week, we look forward to the moment when we can finally say ‘”Where’s My Perry?,’” what an unexpected surprise! And by unexpected, we mean totally expected.’
