Milo Murphy's Law: Upcoming Disney XD Cartoon series

    Yep, Povenmire and Marsh are back at it again. And here's the best part.

    You know how Weird Al has been guest starring in all these cartoons recently, counting but not limited to Word Girl, My Little Pony, Gravity Falls, Adventure Time and Uncle Grandpa? Well, good news because He's the main character's voice actor

    Seriously. Weird Al and the talent behind Rocko's Modern Life, Early Spongebob, and Phineas and Ferb. This already has me pumped. :electric:

    Weird Al's really been on a voice-acting kick lately, and I'm very happy with that.

    Not much to go on regarding the series itself, but since Dan & Swampy are involved, it sounds like it's going to be good like most of Disney's current animated shows. :)

    I'm glad to hear the creators of P&F are working on a new show.

    I'm just happy to know there are more animated series coming out of Disney. AS I always say, it's great that Phineas and Ferb have broken the barrier and brought Disney back to its television animated glory. P&F may be gone, and Gravity Falls might have one more episode before they're time passes, but as long as Disney makes more of these, their future is bright.

    I hear that Vincent Martella, the voice of Phineas, will be voicing a character in MML. If that's true, then it's great to see he'll be making a career in voice acting, and maybe he'll be a recurring actor in Swampy & Dan's shows, too. :)

    They showed the thinnest of sneak peeks during The Disney Channel rebroadcast of Weirdmageddon 3.



    I like the character design here. Also mentioning "Star vs. the Forces of Evil coming to Disney XD." Uh, wasn't that always there? But the preview animation shows her with the broken wand. So does it mean the next season's starting up shortly?

    Oh...You mean this theme song?



    The show already had me at Weird Al and Marsh and Povenmire. These visuals send me over the top. This show isn't on TV soon enough.

    Duude, the theme song is basically Weird Al singing a Phineas and Ferb song! I love it, I can't stop listening to it!

    I guess I never thought of it before but, it's Weird Al and the creators of P&F, of course their's gonna be music in it.

    Super excited though, maybe this show can help fill the void of P&F that i've been missing so much. Now all we need is a new Craig McCracken show.

    Looks pretty neat; I'll definitely tune in. P&F, while funny with really good music, was very formulaic. This show seems a little loose, story-wise.

    But it sure did twist that formula as much as it could, especially in its later seasons.

    True, but I think that's at least partly because after a while even the writers began to realize that Phineas and Ferb were no longer the most interesting part of the show. More and more, their parts of the show became the B plots, while Perry and Doofensmirtz's stories seemed to take center stage.

    Anyone else see this show yet? After seeing the first two episodes, I'm already hooked. I really enjoy how Milo is a jinx, yet everything works out for him eventually thanks to his optimism and over-preparedness. I also really like how his friends enjoy being with him in spite of this.

    No. I forgot all about it to be honest.

    I think it's fairly "meh" at this point. Can't judge much after one episode, but I kinda hyped for it and was a little let down.

    Finally caught the first episode and I'd say it met my expectations. I wasn't extremely surprised by it, nor was I disappointed. I had high standards for this show and they were met exactly. I mean, the first episode was very piloty, but not excessively so. I like how his female friend pretty much is that comfortable with Milo's bad luck that she was able to bet on him the way she did, yet was a little bit concerned about her grade point average when they had to build the egg cradle. Overall, I get a Phineas and Ferb (minus Perry and Doof) meets Eek the Cat vibe.

    I feel this show definitely has potential, and hopefully they can get a lot of mileage of Milo being unlucky without it getting repetitive relatively early. Sure, Phineas and Ferb had a formula to it, but it played with it and parodied it halfway through. I'm sure if they get stuck on this series, they can pull it out with a sarcastic nod to it's themes.

    The only thing I really didn't like was the whole "our new leader" gag from the "Undergrounders." Comedy is rule of three, not 20.
