~I received a copy of Mr. Peabody & Sherman as a Fox Home Entertainment Insider. Opinions and stories are my own.~
Last week DreamWorks Animation released an out of this century animation, Mr. Peabody & Sherman! This adorable film is based off the characters featured in the 1950s-60s “Rocky and His Friends Show” and “The Bullwinkle Show” and features an amazing voice cast! Ty Burrell (Modern Family) as Mr. Peabody, Max Charles (The Amazing Spiderman) as Sherman, Ariel Winter (Modern Family) as Penny, Leslie Mann (This is 40) as Penny’s Mom and THE Stephen Colbert as Penny’s Father!
Mr. Peabody and Sherman aren’t your average family. In fact, Mr. Peabody is a dog. Having been rejected as a puppy, Peabody went on to devote his life to science and technological discoveries; becoming the smartest being in the world. Along the way he came across an orphan who he adopted and named Sherman.
Things get a little crazy with this unique family when Sherman starts attending Susan B. Anthony School and meets Penny Peterson. As Mr. Peabody and Sherman can travel back in time to learn about history, he innocently shows up Penny in history class which results in her bullying and humiliating him at school. After Sherman retaliates against Penny and they have to make up over dinner with the families, everything starts to unravel. A wild goose chase through time ensues with various characters throughout history, such as: King Tut, George Washington, Leonardo Di Vinci and more!
I love this movie and not just because it has a splendid cast of my favorite actor/actresses. It is a wild ride through time and space with a lot of humor.
