I love it when a cartoon show aimed at kids goes out of their way to get guest stars that most kids won’t recognize, but that their parents very likely will. The best kids’ shows are always the ones that are entertaining for young and
old somewhat less young.
Today’s new half-hour Phineas and Ferb, airing at 10:00am ET/PT on Disney XD, guest stars the always-terrific Simon Pegg, of the Cornetto trilogy and Scotty in the Star Trek reboot. Elizabeth Banks, known for many roles including Effie in the Hunger Games films and the voice of Wyldstyle in The LEGO Movie also guest stars as “Grulinda.”
The episode, titled “Imperfect Storm,” is described in the official press release thusly:
Phineas and Ferb create a wind amplification device, while Doofenshmirtz plans revenge on his childhood foe, Grulinda, by using his Sog-inator to rain out her garden tea party. Meanwhile, Mom’s backyard makeover gives Candace hope that her dream of busting her brothers will actually happen.
Watch a clip from the show – exclusive to GeekDad – featuring Simon Pegg’s character “Pierre” below.
“Imperfect Storm” airs today from 10:00 – 10:30am on Disney XD.
