Watch My Show: Phineas and Ferb's Dan Povenmire, Jeff "Swampy" Marsh Answer Showrunner Survey

There are 104 days of summer vacation, but Disney Channel's Phineas and Ferb has already been on many more adventures than that — nearly 175, and counting. The hit animated series' latest episode ("This is Your Backstory"), which premieres this Friday at 9/8c, explores the life of evil Dr. Doofenshmirtz via an odd reality show hosted by his giant human robot, Norm.

Phineas and Ferb has become a major franchise for Disney, spawning merchandise, theme park attractions, a TV-movie, soundtracks and soon (in 2014), a feature film. The brainchild of Dan Povenmire and Jeff "Swampy" Marsh, Phineas and Ferb balances the story of two young stepbrothers who go on adventures via their fantastical inventions with the tale of their pet platypus Perry, a secret agent who fights the bumbling Doofenshmirtz. The show's rich backstory, pop culture parodies and recurring irreverent gags have made Phineas and Ferb a hit with adults as well as kids. Povenmire and Marsh filled out our TV Guide Magazine showrunner survey to explain why watching Phineas and Ferb should be what we do today.

Comic-Con: Damon Lindelof on His Phineas and Ferb Obsession

After Damon Lindelof's 6-year-old son fell in love with Disney Channel's Phineas and Ferb, it didn't take long for the Lost executive producer and Prometheus writer to do the same.

"Up until then we had him on a very steady diet of Sesame Street and very small mellow shows like Little Bill and Caillou," remembers Lindelof, who moderated Saturday's Phineas and Ferb panel at Comic-Con in San Diego. "And then my wife just showed him an episode of Phineas and Ferb, I don't know how it happened. All I know is if I had done it, I would have gotten into big trouble. I came home and it was like he had been plugged into an electric socket."
