Main continuing story involved Rocky and Bullwinkle in conflict with spies Boris and Natasha. Other segments included "Fractured Fairy Tales", "Peabody's Improbable History" (smart dog Peabody and his boy Sherman get in the way-back machine), the "Adventures of Dudley Doright" (Canadian Mountie vs. evil Snidley) and "Aesop and Son" (odd telling of the famous fables).

In an episode not listed on IMDB, Peabody & Sherman join Cleopatra VII and Gaio Giulio Cesare to wage war against Ptolemy XIII, in "42 BC" according to the Waybac machine's clock. However, that war happened in 48-47 BC, Ptolemy died in a shipping accident on 13 January 47 BC, and Julius was stabbed to death on 15 March 44 BC. Since this erroneous chronology is not revealed in a humorous fashion, it counts as a goof. See more »
Bullwinkle, do you know what an A-Bomb is?
Sure, a bomb is what some people call our show.
I don't think that's very funny.
Neither do they, apparently.

You know, this is a real classic, they don't do cartoons like this anymore, is amazing the way they used the irony to make fun of the social and political situation of the years. The series has a real nice humor, it's not only funny, it makes you think about all that was happen in the early 60s, the cold war, the politic issues, all in a way not many people can do it these days. The cold war paranoid the country was living those years( even it's not explicit you know Boris and Natasha are Russians), they suppose to be the heroes but they are just accidental heroes, with a dumb moose and a little smarter squirrel, they just ruin the Boris and Natasha plains accidentally. Anyway for these and many other reasons Rocky and Bullwinkle is one of my favorite cartoons of all times.
