Disney's Emmy Award-winning Phineas and Ferb, TV's #1 animated series among kids 2-11, kids 6-11 and tweens 9-14, will put the summer spotlight on the hugely popular character Perry the Platypus -- in a two-part cliffhanger on TV and online in which the boys' domesticated pet/secret agent really goes missing.
"Phineas and Ferb" builds out with 2-part special
In Disney Channel's cliffhanger storyline, "Where's Perry?, Part One" premiering at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Thursday, July 26, Phineas and Ferb embark on an African safari vacation while their loyal pet platypus Perry stays back in Danville to handle a Dr. Doofenshmirtz emergency. As the story unfolds, Dr. Doofenshmirtz tries to take over the OWCA with his Ultimate Evil-inator, but it inadvertently zaps Carl the Intern, turning him evil. Several of Dr. Doofenshmirtz's "-inators" hit Perry, causing him to disappear and quickly prompting the question: where's Perry?
Meanwhile, in Africa, Candace frantically searches for a cell phone signal to get through to Jeremy back in Danville while Phineas and Ferb build a highly unconventional vehicle to explore an unchartered gorge.
Guest-starring are Vanessa Williams (ABC's 666 Park Avenue) as the flight attendant, Harold Perrineau (ABC's Lost) as the Maitre D, and Edi Gathegi (X Men: First Class) as Iggy, the safari guide.

The episode will also be available on DisneyChannel.com, WATCH Disney Channel and iTunes following the linear premiere on Thursday, July 26.
