-- "A List" Celebrity Guests from Film, TV, Sports and Music are Booked --

In the footsteps of the talk show greats, genial stepbrothers Phineas Flynn and Ferb Fletcher will host their own animated/live action talk show, originating from a Danville set complete with a fake skyline, comfy guest chairs and the boys' longtime friend, Isabella Shapiro-Garcia, as the stage manager. The mash-up show has already booked real life "A list" celebrity guests, a list that will rival morning, afternoon and late night talk show rosters. Movie star Jack Black ("Gulliver's Travels") is the inaugural guest on the wonderfully playful "Take Two with Phineas and Ferb," premiering FRIDAY, DECEMBER 3 (between 9:00-9:15 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel. It will also air on Disney XD.

The two-minute interview segments will encourage guests to mix it up, do the unexpected, disclose their fondest hopes and deepest thoughts and debate the implications of myriad subjects from super powers to juggling. Some segments will include musical performances. Advanced technology is a vital component of the "Take Two with Phineas and Ferb" production, allowing others, including Dr. Doofenshmirtz, the opportunity to interact with the guests.

In addition to Black, the booked guests on "Take Two with Phineas and Ferb" are: actor/comedian Andy Samberg ("Saturday Night Live"), actor Seth Rogen ("Green Hornet"), legendary skateboarder Tony Hawk, Grammy-winning recording artist Taylor Swift, the dean of talk shows, Regis Philbin ("Live with Regis and Kelly"), star of stage and screen Neil Patrick Harris, actress Emma Roberts ("Scream 4"), Grammy-winning producer Randy Jackson ("American Idol") and talented comedian Cedric the Entertainer.

The Emmy Award-winning hit series "Phineas and Ferb" has ranked as TV's #1 animated series among Kids 6-11 and Tweens 9-14 for two consecutive years. It is TV's #1 animated series in fiscal 2010 among Kids 6-11 and Tweens 9-14, delivering 3.3 million Total Viewers on average.

"Phineas and Ferb" airs on Disney XD and Disney Channels in 158 countries and in 32 languages around the world. In the U.S., five new music videos and the cleverly comedic "Phineas and Ferb Christmas Vacation" holiday special will be presented on Disney XD, Disney Channel, ABC Family and the ABC Television Network this year.

The success of the series has created opportunities for other Disney divisions, including the recently released Phineas and Ferb: Holiday Favorites, an album that puts the popular characters' unique and humorous twist on holiday tunes. The release marks the second album from "Phineas and Ferb." Its soundtrack is a solid performer, having spent 28 consecutive weeks on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The album debuted at #1 and spent 50 consecutive weeks in the Top 10 on Billboard's Children's Top 100 chart. The soundtrack's Spanish language version peaked at #4 on Spain's Top 100 Album chart.

"Phineas and Ferb" has also inspired extensions via Disney Consumer Products (action figures, apparel and accessories), Disney Publishing (books, comics), Disney Interactive Studios (a fast-selling Nintendo DS game) and Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment.

Created and executive-produced by Dan Povenmire and Jeff "Swampy" Marsh, the series is a production of Disney Television Animation. The voice cast includes: Vincent Martella, Thomas Sangster, Ashley Tisdale, Dee Bradley Baker, Alyson Stoner and Bobby Gaylor. The short form series "Take Two with Phineas and Ferb" is a production of Hieroglyphic Productions in association with Disney Television Animation.
