Earlier this month, Disney announced that Kim's final mission is coming to an end. This summer, the Kim Possible World Showcase Adventure will be replaced by Agent P's World Showcase Adventure at Epcot in Walt Disney World in Florida. Agent P is the agent name of Perry the Platypus, pet of the two stepbrothers in Phineas and Ferb.
For those who have somehow missed it or might not have been interested in the show, here's a summary:
- Two stepbrothers are determined to make each day of their summer vacation the best they possibly can. To that end, they build fantastic inventions that are not hindered by things like physics, time or money. For example, they made a rollercoaster that goes through the entire town and built it in a few hours, then later built the rollercoaster again, but did so as a musical. Their sister, Candace, certain she would get in trouble if she tried the same things, tries to "bust" them to their mother. Candace is based on Jeanie Bueller from Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and the actress that played Jeanie has guest-starred on Phineas and Ferb a couple of times.
- Unknown to them, their pet platypus leads a double life as a secret agent for the O.W.C.A. (Organization Without a Cool Acronym), which is made up of agents that are animals. He is assigned to Dr. Doofenshmirtz. Like the boys, he is able to build fantastic inventions ("inators") in his attempt to take over the Tri-State Area, the downtown area of the city. He was advised to start small and hasn't succeeded yet. The fight between Agent P and Dr. Doofenshmirtz usually cleans up the boys' invention, so Candace never succeeds in her mission, which frustrates her no end.
- The show is written so that anybody can enjoy it. It doesn't dumb anything down simply because this is a "kids show". I've seen a few other shows where I had to turn them off after only 3 or 4 minutes because they were doing exactly that. Add in the fact that there's a song in each episode, and you have an intelligent show that is worth watching.
So, while it's a bit sad that we will probably never see any new adventures for Kim and Ron, take comfort that Disney is replacing her last mission with something equally as good.
