Jeff “Swampy” Marsh, co-creator and executive producer of the Emmy Award-winning Disney series Phineas and Ferb, has boarded the show’s revival as executive producer and voice director.
Marsh and his fellow co-creator wrote more than 450 original songs for the series’ first run, and he voice directed performances by the main cast. He also voiced the character of Major Francis Monogram.
Phineas and Ferb, created by Marsh and his longtime producing partner Dan Povenmire, originally ran for four seasons between 2008 and 2015 on Disney Channel. In January 2023, Disney Branded Television revealed it would be reviving the series with 40 total episodes.
Marsh is also working with Disney on the preschool series Hey A.J., from his Surfing Giant Studios.
“Swampy is one of the brightest creators in animation and among his many passions is connecting and collaborating with creative people, whether it’s through writing, animation design, directing, music or acting,” said Meredith Roberts, executive VP of television animation at Disney Branded Television. “He continually elevates their artistry, as well as his own, to tell the bigger and more entertaining stories for global audiences. We’re thrilled to be continuing our partnership and look forward to a long and exciting road ahead.”
Alyssa Sapire, senior VP of development, series and strategy for Disney Junior, added, “Swampy is a multihyphenate talent bringing excellence to Hey A.J., a playful, music-filled series that represents what is most dear to him—family—and a relatable, positive portrayal of a child and her parents, a stay-at-home father and small business owner mother. With every step, we’re even more elated with the collaboration of Swampy’s creative team and look forward to delivering a show that will entertain our young viewers and their parents too.”
