Phineas & Ferb meet the NHL in Merchandise Agreement

“Aren’t you a little young for an NHL spokesperson?”
“Why yes. Yes we are.”

That’s not a line of dialog from the popular Phineas & Ferb animated show on Disney Channel, but it might as well be. The brothers and their friends have been opted into a co-branded plan between Disney Consumer Products and the National Hockey League (NHL) to make exclusive 20111 NHL licensed products.

The Disney and the NHL collection will include apparel, headwear, house and home products and collectibles featuring characters from Phineas and Ferb wearing NHL and team-branded merchandise. NHL and Disney licensees will deliver the new products to retail stores throughout North America in fall 2011, just in time for the new school year and the 2011-12 NHL season.

“The Phineas and Ferb brand evokes creativity, youthfulness and high energy, not unlike the NHL brand,” said Jim Haskins, Group Vice President, Consumer Product Licensing. “The NHL is thrilled to be working with such a premier Disney property as nearly one third of NHL fans are between the ages of six and 17, and 65 percent of those fans watch the Disney Channel.”

Feld brings Disney’s Phineas and Ferb to the stage for tour

Like one of Dr. Doofenschmirtz’ quirky ideas, Disney’s plans for its Phineas and Ferb franchise are starting to spread like wildfire beyond the Tri-state area. Feld Entertainment, the group responsible for Disney Live!, Disney On Ice, and Ringling Bros and Barnum Bailey Circus will be bringing a touring stage show featuring the gang from the popular show to life.

Disney’s Phineas and Ferb: The Best LIVE Tour Ever!, brings Phineas, Ferb, Candace, Isabella, Baljeet, Buford and friends to the stage as they make the most of  the last day of summer by building an invention bigger, better and more amazing than ever. Before anyone can wonder “Hey! Where’s Perry?,” the pet platypus dons his Agent P fedora, and hilarious hijinks unfold as he battles Dr. Doofenshmirtz to save the Danville Tri-state area and audiences everywhere from the evil scientist’s most havoc-wreaking scheme to date.

Sound like fun? It’s definitely better than just a meet and greet at the parks. I’m glad to see Disney doing more with this property. Will you see it if it comes near you?
