Mr. Peabody is a dog. Mr. Peabody is a time traveler. Mr. Peabody has a human son. I’m betting drugs were involved when the creators of Rocky and Bullwinkle came up with Mr. Peabody and Sherman in the 60’s as an accompanying short to their show.

Flash to decades later and here we are, a dark dystopian future where no brand is safe from a family friendly re-imagining and the dark lord Dreamworks has hatched a nefarious plan to hoist upon the planet’s unsuspecting populace a new evil, from the past, reshaped into the monster that is…Mr. Peabody and Sherman.

Or, alternately, it might actually be really cool. Only Ashley, Beau and Chris know for sure. Better find out before this whole time-space continuum gets all wibbly-wobbly.
