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 »

Sure you watched it when you were a kid, but chances are you didn't get the subtle jokes for the adults, interspersed with the bad puns for the kids. Revel in Mr. Peabody's demented version of history once more. Wonder why Dudley prefers to kiss his horse over Nell, and ponder why Snidely Whiplash is so green. Look out for subtle Cold War era jokes. Let's face it, you missed it the first time around. Now's the time to catch up with Bullwinkle, a true American cartoon classic, terminally underrated, but saved from oblivion at last.
