Emmy Award winner Ty Burrell voices Mr. Peabody, the world’s smartest person who happens to be a dog. When his “pet” boy Sherman, voiced by Max Charles, uses their time traveling WABAC machine without permission, events in history spiral out of control to disastrious and comical results.
Mr. Peabody (voiced by Ty Burrell) is a business titan, inventor, scientist, Nobel Laureate, gourmand, two-time Olympic medalist, and genius… who also happens to be a dog. Using his most ingenious invention, the WABAC machine, Mr. Peabody and his adopted boy Sherman (Max Charles) hurtle back in time to experience world-changing events first-hand and interact with some of the greatest characters of all time. But when Sherman breaks the rules of time travel, our two heroes find themselves in a race to repair history and save the future, while Mr. Peabody may face his biggest challenge yet – being a parent.
Mr. Peabody & Sherman is a 2014 American 3D computer-animated comic science fiction film based on the characters from the Peabody’s Improbable History segments of the 1960s animated television series, The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show. It is produced by DreamWorks Animation and distributed by 20th Century Fox. Rob Minkoff is the director, and Alex Schwartz and Denise Nolan Cascino are the producers. Tiffany Ward, daughter of Jay Ward, one of the creators of the original series, is the executive producer. Mr. Peabody & Sherman will feature the voices of Ty Burrell, Max Charles, Ariel Winter, Stephen Colbert, and Leslie Mann. Mr. Peabody & Sherman is the first DreamWorks animated feature to feature characters from the Classic Media library since DreamWorks Animation’s 2012 acquisition of Classic Media. The film premiered on February 7, 2014 in the United Kingdom, and will be released March 7, 2014 in the United States.
The film features Mr. Peabody, a talking dog who is the smartest being in the world, and his adopted boy Sherman. On his first day of school, Sherman comes into conflict with another classmate named Penny Peterson. The adoption agency informs Peabody that they will reclaim Sherman if any more incidents occur at school. To complicate this issue, Peabody invites the Petersons over to “break the ice.” After Sherman’s misuse of their time traveling WABAC machine to impress Penny has disastrous and comical results, it is up to them to put things on track before the space-time continuum is irreparably destroyed.

Tiffany Ward was astonished when she saw the penthouse apartment occupied by the erudite genius dog Mr. Peabody and his adopted human son Sherman in “Mr. Peabody & Sherman,” the new 3-D, big-screen adaptation of her father Jay Ward’s beloved cartoon. The building resembles the Seagram Building, her father’s favorite Manhattan skyscraper. The residence itself, down to the midcentury furniture and the art on the walls, reminded her of a beach house her dad built for the family in the Orange County coastal enclave of Corona Del Mar in the mid-1960s.
There is no way director Rob Minkoff, production designer David James or anyone at DreamWorks Animation could have known either of those things, and yet somehow they managed to capture the essence of not just the cartoon but of Jay Ward himself. For his daughter, it was just further proof that the faith she put in Minkoff and executive producer Jason Clark when they first pitched the movie over a decade ago was not misplaced.
“We had lunch and you could tell they were major fans,” Tiffany Ward remembers during a recent visit to the Bay Area. “That’s one thing I’ve always looked for. If you can tap into that fan base, where they get it, where they got the shows, you almost always come up with a successful property, because they get the original.
“It was almost an instant meeting of the minds. I could tell they really had the passion. They pitched a story that was different, but it was certainly time travel and the characters. It took a long time to flesh out the story we have now. They were 4 1/2-minute episodes, so to take it to a 90-minute movie – it sounds easy, but it’s not.”
Mr. Peabody and Sherman were introduced in 1959, their series “Peabody’s Improbable History” alternating with “Fractured Fairy Tales,” “Dudley Do-Right” and other cartoons and sandwiched between “Rocky & Bullwinkle” episodes. The dog and his boy, with their trusty WABAC machine, roamed through time, visiting important events in history.
