The celebration includes the introduction of “The Platypus Walk,” a catchy spy-surf-rock song and dance designed to encourage fun physical activity.

The day also includes 11 hours of “Phineas and Ferb” programming including two new Perry-focused episodes on Disney Channel and Disney XD, an interactive website dedicated to Perry the Platypus, a giveaway and special Platypus Takeover at all Disney stores in the U.S. and Canada, and events via local Radio Disney stations across the nation.
