Not only does “Weird Al” Yankovic voice the title character to Disney XD’s new animated series “Milo Murphy’s Law,” but he also sings the theme song.

The show, from “Phineas and Ferb” creators Dan Povenmore and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh, follows the exploits of 13-year-old Milo, whose great-great-great-great grandfather originated the phrase “Murphy’s Law.” Unfortunately, Milo – voiced by Yankovic – has inherited the misfortune that comes along with it.

In the show, Milo is the latest in a long line of Murphy boys who have developed “Extreme Hereditary Murphy’s Law Condition.” But he’s ready to combat any situation, turning each disaster into an adventure.

The half-hour show, comprised of two 11-minute stories, premieres Monday, Oct. 3 at 8 p.m. on Disney XD. But users of Disney XD’s app, YouTube channel or VOD platform will be able to catch the episode early, starting Sept. 26.

Sabrina Carpenter and MeKai Curtis star as Milo’s best friends, Melissa and Zack. Recurring characters are voiced by Ming-Na Wen (as time travel agent Savannah), Christian Slater (as school crossing guard Elliot), Vanessa Williams (as Zack’s mother), Sarah Chalke (as science teacher Miss Murawski), Jemaine Clement (as TV character ‘Dr. Zone’), Mackenzie Philips (as Principal Milder), Kate Miccuci (as Milo’s sister), Diedrich Bader (as Milo’s dad) and Pamela Adlon (as Milo’s mom).
