"PHINEAS AND FERB: MISSION MARVEL," A FIRST EVER CROSSOVER TELEVISION SPECIAL FOR MARVEL AND DISNEY CHARACTERS, PREMIERES FRIDAY, AUGUST 16 ON DISNEY CHANNEL

Two iconic universes collide when Marvel and Disney characters team up in "Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel," a landmark "Phineas and Ferb" episode in which Marvel Super Heroes and the popular animated duo, Phineas and Ferb, defeat Marvel Super Villains and Dr. Doofenshmirtz, in an epic battle of good versus evil. This first ever crossover animated television special for Marvel and Disney characters premieres FRIDAY, AUGUST 16 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel.

Meanwhile, Phineas and Ferb do everything they can to restore the Super Heroes' powers before the evil villains take over the world.

Creators and executive producers Dan Povenmire and Jeff "Swampy" Marsh worked closely with Marvel's creative team to ensure the Marvel characters fit seamlessly into the Danville world of the Emmy Award-winning series.
