Welcome to the Animation Monday segment! Each week here on Geek Alabama, Animation Monday will feature stuff from the animation and cartoon worlds. Animation has become an extremely popular format in today’s media driven world. And we here at Geek Alabama love to feature animation content!
I saw this infographic on Reddit. The infographic shows which cartoon is based in which state. Some are very obvious, like Family Guy based in Rhode Island, or King of the Hill based in Texas. You can see the infographic below!
As you can see, Alabama has no cartoon. But, as I saw in the Alabama Subreddit, there is a case to say Phineas and Ferb is based in Alabama.
For starters, creator Dan Povenmire is from Mobile, Alabama, grew up in Mobile, and went to school at the University of South Alabama. And in the series is based in the fictional city of Danville. Danville is in the tri-state area, and Mobile is in Alabama and near Mississippi and Florida.
Including Phineas and Ferb, the other series from Dan Povenmire called Milo’s Murphy Law and the newest series Hamster and Gretel are also based in the fictional Danville universe, so I would say those series could also be based in Alabama as well.
