Disney Channel is launching a month-long Phineas and Ferb event leading up to its annual National Platypus Day celebration on Saturday, March 2 — in honor of the show's resident platypus, Perry.
This year, they've enlisted some unusual help: Good Morning America anchors George Stephanopoulos, Josh Elliott, Lara Spencer and Sam Champion can be seen in one spot dancing along to "O.W.C.A." (a riff, of course, on the Village People's "Y.M.C.A."). Phineas and Ferb fans know that "O.W.C.A." stands for Organization Without a Cool Acronym, the evil-fighting group where Perry the Platypus serves as his alterego Agent P.
The "O.W.C.A" song premieres on Radio Disney on Friday, the same day Disney Channel introduces the music video (which also includes a wide variety of Disney Channel stars dancing along).
The flagship episode ("Sidetracked") for this year's Phineas and Ferb "Platypus Day" will air Friday, March 1 at 9/8c. In the episode, Agent P teams up with his former partner, the human agent Lyla (voice of The Daily Show's Samantha Bee) to stop a hijacked train. On March 2, Disney Channel will air multiple episodes, while boy tween-centric Disney XD will run a five-hour marathon, starting with the new episode "Primal Perry," starting at 8 a.m./7c.
The forecast looks full of love for Good Morning America weatherman Sam Champion, who married Rubem Robierb Friday in New York, People reports.
