Mark O'Connell recently had the opportunity to speak to Phineas & Ferb co-creator Jeff "Swampy" Marsh about the Mission Marvel special, which premieres on Disney XD this autumn.
Mission Marvel will assemble characters from Phineas and Ferb and Marvel’s iconic Super Heroes: Spider-Man and The Avengers (Iron Man, Thor and Hulk). The television event marks the first crossover animated television special for Marvel and Disney properties.
Over the past 20 years, Marsh has worked for many of the top names in animation. He worked for over six seasons on the critically-acclaimed series The Simpsons, including three episodes that won Emmy Awards. He also worked as a storyboard artist and designer for the Emmy Award-winning series, King of the Hill, and for four seasons as a writer and director on Rocko's Modern Life.
