Trivia

The show has gone under several names. "Rocky and His Friends" was the name of the pilot produced by Jay Ward, "The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show" was the more popular title, but it is also known as "The Bullwinkle Show." See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

Bullwinkle: Got the wrong script from the teleprompter. As you know this is really the Humphley/Brinley report. No no. The Bullwinkle Show. And I am your moose-ster of ceremonies for the next half-hour: Bullwinkle his-self. As if you couldn't tell. I mean what other show has a host who sings, dances, recites poetry and has antlers? Well, on this network anyway...

A Great TV show for Kids and Adults, or Look What the Moose Dragged In
1 July 2000 | by (Cullman, Alabama) – See all my reviews

There was a station in Huntsville, Alabama that used to play Rocky and Bullwinkle early on Sunday mornings. The reception was poor, but I would wake up early, nonetheless. I never got the jokes, but I knew that there was something there that I was missing and laughed anyway (Remember the Ruby Yacht of Omar Kiyam? Hilarious! What kid gets that joke?). I loved the other shorts too--Mr. Peabody, Bullwinkle's Corner, Dudley Doright, Fractured Fairy Tales, Mr. Know It All--which all seemed to be just as funny, and in some cases funnier, than the moose and squirrel.

I am only 27, but the show reminds me of better times, and I enjoy watching it to this day, finally being able to get the jokes. I can never find it, but when I do, and I rarely do, I sit and watch and remember. I am not sure if I will ever see the live action/animated version of the film, however, because I hate what modern technology has done to the animated characters I grew up loving in flat monotone colors. Isn't this the only way to view Rocky and Bullwinkle, and if Peabody the dog and his boy Sherman ain't in it do I really want to pay money to watch? Oh well, maybe the film will make the TV show more available. One can only hope.
