Mr. Peabody & Sherman have been around for over five decades, entertaining people with their misadventures into the past exploring some of history’s greatest events and crossing paths with many important individuals. Thanks to the help of modern age technology, the old animated show has experienced an exciting revival.
In their most recent incarnation, the core mythos of the characters remains the same. Mr. Peabody (voiced of Ty Burrell) is a beagle that just happens to be the most intelligent being on the planet. His adopted human son, Sherman (voice of Max Charles) and their ridiculous time traveling exploits are the center of the story.
Mr. Peabody has devoted his life to educating Sherman in a way that no one else could with his invention of the WABAC, an incredible time machine. Together they have walked through Leonardo da Vinci’s workshop, witnessed the French Revolution and listened to the wise words of Gandhi. But there’s one place Mr. Peabody can’t go with Sherman, school. As Mr. Peabody realizes Sherman is growing up, he understands no matter how much he tried to prepare for school it won’t be easy to let Sherman go. As for Sherman, he realizes life without Mr. Peabody isn’t as easy as he thought.
The new age version of the old “Peabody's Improbable History,” definitely revitalizes the characters in modern fashion, making them totally accessible for new audiences and fans of the old show. It’s smart and the jokes roll out at a rapid pace. The film’s ideas thrive in a digital world, giving the characters to do things their cartoon counterparts only dreamed of.
“Mr. Peabody & Sherman” have a lot to offer for the whole family. It’s even better if you know your history.
