Mr. Peabody

It is hard enough to believe in a talking dog, but a canine that created his own time machine just so that he could give his adopted 7-year-old human son Sherman a firsthand look into history, is nearly impossible.  I guess it becomes a bit more believable if you take into account that Hector J. Peabody is the most accomplished canine in the world, a Nobel Prize-winning scientist, a world-renowned explorer, and an Olympic gold medalist in the long jump and the decathlon, but in reality, he is just an anthropomorphic cartoon that lives in a penthouse in New York City.  Peabody and Sherman go on time traveling adventures together in the WABAC machine, sort of like Bill and Ted did in their most excellent adventures, but without getting stoned.

  1. We never had this show on TV over the pond. We had Doctor Who and the Tardis (time machine) instead. I watched the latest Doctor Who series just recently and didn’t have a Flux as to what exactly it was all about.

  2. I remember watching that cartoon of a Saturday morning when I was a child. They always seemed to have a science or history ‘lesson’ buried in the show too. I had to snicker when I saw “Fandango Family” on the vid clip. You suppose Mr. Fandango is a member of that movie clan? 😉

  3. This reminds me of the books with Ike La Rue. Really probably has nothing in common except the dog thinks he is human and lives in a city. Lol. Thanks for sharing! And, who knows what will be possible…didn’t a monkey go out in space?
