Slash Teams Up With Phineas and Ferb!
The cartoon’s characters are rockin’ out with Slash.
On August 2, Walt Disney Records will release the soundtrack to the original movie, Phineas and Ferb: Across the 1st and 2nd Dimensions (premiering on the Disney Channel August 5 at 8 p.m.). And for those of you who aren’t hip to Disney Channel, Phineas and Ferb has been rated TV’s No. 1 animated series among tweens ages 9-14. We have a funny feeling that more than tweens are catching this show, wink, wink.
The original movie’s end credit track, “Kick It Up a Notch” will include a bit of rock, and dare we say, roll from legendary, Grammy-winning Guns N Roses guitar player Slash. In the music video, stepbrothers Phineas and Ferb get onstage with Slash who becomes an animated character himself.
“Slash is a rock icon, he’s our hero,” co-executive-producer Dan Povenmire says. “We wanted a song that encapsulated the feeling of the series as well as the movie.”
The movie is said to be the duo’s biggest adventure yet, when they finally discover their pet platypus Perry is really a secret agent who must take down a sinister, alter-ego Dr. Doofenshmirtz from taking over the Tri-state Area. The original brothers and their counterparts from the other dimension join forces with Perry to stop Doofenshmirtz.
“I’m a big fan of ‘Phineas and Ferb,’ Slash says. “I watch a lot of cartoons and I think it’s one of the best shows. It’s well-written, very original and the characters are great”
