Production Halted on 'Phineas and Ferb,' But Is It Permanent?

Production Halted on 'Phineas and Ferb,' But Is It Permanent?

Fans were concerned that the one-hundredth and fourth day of summer has arrived as production on the popular animated show was confusingly said to be on 'indefinite hiatus'... but what does that really mean?

It's been a rather busy back and forth day of answering the question: has Disney stopped funding its  popular cartoon Phineas and Ferb? Cartoon Brew has been on the story since it began when The Animation Guild started with a post that stated:

 

Most the Phineas and Ferb board artists are gone. It was a nice, five-year run but the series and the specials have wrapped and people are off to other jobs, looking for other jobs. A few artists are swinging to other Disney shows here, but others not.

 

Not soon after Phineas and Ferb co-creator Swampy Marsh tweeted and denied the claim:

 

So the story is done and over with right with Marsh calling Guild member, Steve H a liar? Well, yes and no. As a few hours after Marsh posted this tweet, show writer and storyboard artist  Aliki Theofilopoulos tweeted this:

 

So the current answer is yes the show is on the infamous indefinite hiatus. Of course, that wording can be scary, as it's a term shared with the rebooted Thundercats from two years ago and G.I. Joe Renegades. But as stated, there are quite a few episodes that need to be aired, including the Star Wars special, along with more specials, and this wouldn't be the first Disney cartoon that went on an indefinite hiatus and returned. The most recent one this reporter can recall is Kim Possible, which ended production going into a hiatus with an animated movie before Disney took it off hiatus to air new episodes. Even Aliki likened it to Sponge Bob taking a year off and nothing more:

 

 

We'll keep you updated on this developing and ever changing story, but we wouldn't be too worried. Phineas and Ferb is too good and popular a show to go away for good.

 

So have faith! Until then you can hum or sing this tune while you wait:
