Premise

Main article: Timeline

Amphibia chronicles the adventures of 13-year-old Anne Boonchuy, who is magically transported to the fantastical world of Amphibia, a rural marshland full of frog-people. There she meets an excitable young frog named Sprig Plantar, his unpredictable sister Polly and overprotective grandpa Hop Pop. With Sprig's help, Anne will transform into a hero and discover the first true friendship of her life.

Production information

On February 23, 2018, Disney Channel greenlit the series, alongside The Owl House.[4] According to Matt Braly on a tweet, the development for Amphibia had taken "almost two years" before it was picked up in February 2018. [5] On March 27, 2019, it was announced that Brenda Song would star in the series as the voice of Anne Boonchuy.[6] In April 2019, Justin Felbinger was announced as the voice of Sprig Plantar. On May 15, 2019, Bill Farmer and Amanda Leighton, were announced as the voices of Hop Pop Plantar and Polly Plantar, respectively.[1]

Trivia

  • The show was originally titled "Amphibiland" but it had to be changed due to legal issues.[28]
  • "Grubhog Day" was the very first episode of Amphibia, written and boarded in production of the entire series.[29]

References in other media

  • In the Big City Greens episode "Present Tense", a Sprig plushie can be seen in a claw machine in an arcade along some other Disney Channel figures from other Disney Animation Shows. (like King from The Owl House, Wander from Wander over Yonder, Perry the Platypus from Phineas and Ferb, Rufus the naked mole-rat from Kim Possible, Bill Cipher from Gravity Falls, and Star Butterfly from Star vs. the Forces of Evil.)
    • This episode from Big City Greens premiered on September 12, 2020, along with the Amphibia episodes "Little Frogtown" and "Hopping Mall".
  • The Owl House:
  • The Ghost and Molly McGee
    • In the Chibi Tiny Tales story Scratch Haunts, Scratch is on the loose haunting various Disney Channel characters. When he tries to scare Anne and Sprig, he fails. He knocks on the door of the Plantar family door and is greeted by Anne and Sprig. He tries to scare them, but they are scared by a giant mantis that is standing behind Scratch, which results in them shutting the door. Scratch then scares the mantis instead.
