A new animated series is coming to the Disney family. Hamster & Gretel is coming to us from Dan Povenmire, the co-creator of fan-favorite, Emmy Award-winning animated series Phineas and Ferb. This is great news for fans of Disney animated comedy.

Dan Povenmire has confirmed that Hamster & Gretel takes place in the same world as Phineas and Ferb. However, the two do not exist in the same town.


The idea behind the show is that 16-year-old Kevin and his little sister Gretel and their pet hamster experience car trouble one day. While they are checking on their vehicle, an alien ship visits and bestows superpowers upon two of the passengers.

Meli Povenmire, Dan Povenmire’s daughter, is breaking onto the scene as Gretel. The series will also star Michael Cimino as Gretel’s older brother, Kevin.

Additionally, Beck Bennett, who you may know as Launchpad from Ducktales, will provide the voice for Gretel’s pet hamster, Hamster. Their parents will be played by Carolina Ravassa and Matt Jones.
