Top Gear may be the most-watched factual program in the entire world, but you know the show has really made it when its hosts are asked to make a guest appearance on the animated show Phineas and Ferb.
Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond will voice the characters of car race commentators in an upcoming episode of the Disney kids show called “Live and Let Drive.”
“I couldn’t say yes quickly enough. I did Phineas and Ferb as a way of impressing my children. They think I’ve done something cool for once!” Hammond said, according to a Press Association story.
“Impressing my girls as a bloke off a car show is impossible. They are not impressed by fancy cars or motorcycles or me flying a helicopter or any of the things I like doing,” explained the Hamster. ”They have grown up with having a dad on the telly, it has always been the case for them, so there’s little novelty in it for them, but when it’s a show that they watch independently of my being in it and then I crop up on it, that’s much cooler.”
Richard will also do a guest spot on the spin-off Take Two With Phineas and Ferb.
JEREMY, RICHARD and JAMES are in Africa with a simple mission: to find the definitive source of the Nile.
Over the years many explorers claim to have already done just that, but the TOP GEAR trio believe that they can do better by traveling further and faster than any exploration team in history using only grit, ingenuity… and three aging estate cars.
But you know it’s never a good sign when JEREMY is praying (even if it is for the raft to flip over with RICHARD & JAMES on-board!) and RICHARD’s already squealing in fear…
