Mr Peabody & Sherman is based upon the 1960s classic ‘Peabody’s Improbably History’, by Ted Key. Mr Peabody is a super intelligent beagle who is a business magnate, inventor, gourmand, and two-time Olympic medalist. Mr Peabody discovers Sherman orphaned and abandoned in an alley. After successfully petitioning the court, Mr Peabody adopts Sherman.
The movie focuses on the relationship between Mr Peabody and Sherman. As Sherman begins school, he has a fight with one of his classmates. In an attempt to rectify the situation, Mr Peabody invites the girl and her parents over for dinner. Sherman ends up showing her the WABAC machine and wacky happenings ensue.
This is a very good movie for audiences young and old. The character development is good and the dialog is genuinely funny. I liked it.
