Milo Murphy's Law[1] (titled Mikey Murphy's Law in production)[2] is an American animated television series that debuted on October 3, 2016 on Disney XD.[3] It was created by Jeff "Swampy" Marsh and Dan Povenmire, the creators of Phineas and Ferb. It focuses on the life of Milo Murphy, a 13-year-old boy whom is condemned to Murphy's Law: "Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong."

Plot

Milo Murphy is the great-great-great-great-grandson of the original Murphy of Murphy's Law. Born with Extreme Hereditary Murphy's Law (EHML), a condition that has affected the males in the Murphy family for seven generations, Milo is always expecting the unexpected. Together with his friends Melissa and Zack, they will learn to not sweat the big stuff — and it's all BIG stuff. No matter what goes wrong, (and something constantly does,) Milo is prepared for every possibility, armed with knowledge, a backpack of supplies, and an endless sense of optimism and enthusiasm that can turn any catastrophe into an adventure!

History

The first song about Milo Murphy's Law is "We're Gonna Do It Again!", sung by Dan and Swampy, when they present their new show. It can be considered their sequel tour, since they did a similar song for Phineas and Ferb.
