“Phineas and Ferb” is getting into the Halloween spirit this weekend with a “Night of the Living Dead”-inspired special called “Night of the Living Pharmacists.”
Among the star-studded cast are horror heavyweight George Romero and actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, reprising their characters from Edgar Wright’s beloved zombie sendup “Shaun of the Dead.”
In this latest episode, Doofenshmirtz’s newest “-inator” machine accidentally turns the citizens of Danville into contagious Doof-zombies. Phineas, Ferb, Agent P and others must work together to save the city.
In the exclusive clip above, reporter Don Adaded (voiced by Romero) falls victim to the Doofenshmirtz disease.
The show has been on a roll with its special projects of late. “Lost” co-creator Damon Lindelof provided the plot for “Phineas and Ferb: Lost in Danville,” which aired Monday.
Earlier this year, creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh got to indulge a childhood fantasy when they brought the Disney Channel movie “Phineas and Ferb: Star Wars” to life on July 26.

The special included Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and other characters and paralleled the events from “Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope.”
“Night of the Living Pharmacists” also features guest voices Noah Wyle and “Blended” actress Bella Thorne.
Reprising their “Phineas and Ferb” roles are “Modern Family” actress Ariel Winter as Fireside Girl Gretchen and Cloris Leachman as Mrs. Feyersied.
The special, airing Saturday at 8 p.m. on the Disney Channel, is part of the network’s “Monstober” programming event.
