That's right, no fancy 3D glasses here - just the adventure of a lifetime as Phineas and Ferb tackle a whole new dimension," said Gary Marsh, president, Entertainment and chief creative officer, Disney Channels Worldwide. He added, "With the 'Perry the Platy-bus On Tour' and much more, we're looking forward to answering the perennial question, 'Where's Perry?,' and delighting fans driving on the highways and byways this summer."
