The Disney Channel has renewed its Emmy-winning animated hit Phineas and Ferb for a fourth season.

The renewal of the No. 1 animated series in the kids 6-11 and tweens 9-14 demographics will keep Phineas in new episodes through 2014.

Created and executive produced by Dan Provenmire and Jeff "Swampy" Marsh for Disney Television Animation, Phineas has been a fruitful franchise for Disney Channel, airing more than 100 episodes and spawning a live-action/animated talk show, TV movie as well as video games, soundtracks, toys, electronics, apparel, books, comics and a magazine.

STORY: 'Phineas and Ferb' Duo Developing Feature Film, Possible Spinoff

The duo, who each signed multiyear deals with Disney Television Animation in August, are developing a feature film based on the animated hit and will develop a pilot for Disney Channel, which likely would be a Phineas spinoff.

This summer, Phineas and Ferb: Across the 2nd Dimension became cable’s top movie of the year in total viewers, drawing 7.6 million viewers on Aug. 5, topping all broadcast networks in the advertiser-coveted adults 18-49 demographic.
