‘Penn Zero: Part Time Hero’ is an animated series coming to Disney XD. And that’s pretty much everything we know — almost.
Attention was brought to the series by several recent domain registration of several names for it: PENNZERO.COM, PENNZERO.NET, PENNZEROPARTTIMEHERO.COM and PENNZEROPARTTIMEHERO.NET.
An extensive Google search for information on the series turned up only two mentions, one ironically enough right on Disney Channel’s media web site. The entry for Sofia the First: Once Upon a Princess mentions that voice director Sam Reigel worked on ‘Penn Zero: Part Time Hero,’ as well as another pilot, ‘Shred-Force,’ which was created by Matt Maiellaro, co-creator of Cartoon Network’s ‘Aqua Teen Hunger Force,’ et al.
Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment today confirmed our earlier report that the ‘Phineas and Ferb’/Marvel crossover special, ‘Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel‘ will be released on DVD on October 1, 2013 and is now available for pre-order. In addition, they have provided us with several stills from the episode, which have been made into a gallery below.
After Dr. Doofenshmirtz’s latest ‘-inator’ scheme accidentally removes the powers of some very well-known Marvel Super Heroes (Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor, and Hulk), the heroes enter the world of Danville and team up with Phineas and Ferb to relocate their powers, defeat the Marvel Super Villains (Red Skull, MODOK, Whiplash and Venom) – who have also shown up to steal Doofenshmirtz’s power-draining technology – and save Danville from ultimate destruction!
Ahead of any official announcements, Amazon.com has begun listing the DVD edition of the upcoming Phineas and Ferb/Marvel crossover special, ‘Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel‘ with a release date of October 1, 2013. No additional information has been provided at this time.
In ‘Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel,’ Spider-Man, Iron Man, Thor and Hulk stand powerless after being struck by Dr. Doofenshmirtz’s power-draining ‘inator.’ Once the Marvel Super Villains — Red Skull, Whiplash, Venom and M.O.D.O.K. — find out that Dr. Doofenshmirtz is responsible for robbing the Super Heroes of their powers, they seek him out and together create mayhem in Danville. Meanwhile, Phineas and Ferb do everything they can to restore the Super Heroes’ powers before the evil villains take over the world.
