Lost Returns…in a Phineas and Ferb Cartoon



Synergy! Just as Disney’s Phineas and Ferb have helped to pimp recent corporate acquisitions Marvel and Star Wars, so now are they boosting subsidiary ABC network shows…though Lost has been off the air a few years now. Still, on the tenth anniversary of its debut, people are still talking about it, and still getting it wrong about the island being purgatory. (As everyone knows, the island in fact contained the power of Grayskull.)

In “Lost in Danville,” airing Monday, the duo won’t necessarily visit THE island, but they will be confronted by a mysterious hatch, a polar bear and a strange character played by Terry O’Quinn. Damon Lindelof came up with the story, so it probably won’t make a lot of sense – but in a cartoon, that’s okay.

Is this instant Dharma gonna get’cha?
