If you are a fan of the old Rocky & Bullwinkle cartoons, then I have a treat for you! Fans of the series will undoubtedly remember the Peabody’s Improbable History segments during the cartoon that centered around an uber-intelligent dog named Mr. Peabody and his adopted boy Sherman. My husband has always been a huge fan of this cartoon series and now thanks to the wonder of DVD, my daughters love it too. The Mr. Peabody segments are a favorite of my middle daughter. So she was super excited to learn about a new movie coming out that is centered entirely on the lovable dog and his boy.
The Mr. Peabody & Sherman movie hits theaters on March 7, 2014 and it looks like it will be great fun for all ages. Parents who remember the Rocky and Bullwinkle Show will enjoy it for the nostalgia alone. Mr. Peabody and Sherman is being made by Dreamworks, the same company that brought us Shrek, and features the voice talents of Ty Burrell, Max Charles, Ariel Winter, Stephen Colbert, and Leslie Mann.
About the Mr. Peabody & Sherman Movie:
Mr. Peabody (voiced by Ty Burrell, Emmy Award® Winner -Modern Family), the most accomplished dog in the world, and his mischievous boy Sherman (Max Charles -The Amazing Spiderman), use their time machine—the WABAC—to go on the most outrageous adventures known to man or dog. But when Sherman takes The WABAC out for a joyride to impress his friend Penny, they accidently rip a hole in the universe, wreaking havoc on the most important events in world history. Before they forever alter the past, present and future, Mr. Peabody must come to their rescue, ultimately facing the most daunting challenge of any era: figuring out how to be a parent. Together, the time traveling trio will make their mark on history.
You can watch the movie trailer below. Doesn’t it look like a great movie that the whole family will enjoy?
