Goofs:
Anachronisms: 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 »

"Now Here's Something We Hope You'll Really Like.", 15 November 2002
Author: (robocoptng986127@aol.com) from U.S.A

Probably one of the most famous cartoon shows in history. It stars a dim-witted six foot tall moose and his common-sense flying squirrel friend Rocky. These two get into all sorts of trouble! They always foil the evil plots of Boris Badenov and his assistant Natasha Fatale. Those two are from Pottselvania and are under the control of their fearless leader, Fearless Leader. Many memorable episodes here. How about the Pottselvania Creeper one where a giant plant tries to swallow the population. How about the Wottsamotto U epic? But who could forget the Mooseberry bush one. That took over 40 segments to complete because just as Rocky and Bullwinkle came close to getting the bush, something always happened! And no matter what, in each new episode, Rocky and Bullwinkle never recognized Boris and Natasha in their disguises! Another friend was Captain Ronway Peachfuzz, a bumbling sea captain who could never steer his ship in the right direction. There were other segments here too, like Bullwinkle's Corner where Bullwinkle recites some kooky poetry, or how about Mr. Know-It-All where Bullwinkle explains how to do something the right way but ends up demonstrating it the wrong way. Boris would often interfere.

Other stars of the show included Mr. Peabody, the brainy talking dog and his assistant, Sherman, a young lad Peabody had rescued. They always use Peabody's Way-Back machine to travel back in time to help historical people make their historical discoveries. Then there was Aesop and Son, where Aesop tried explaining virtues to his son using old fables. Then there was Fractured Fairy Tales featuring the fairy tales we are familiar with in versions we are unfamiliar with. My favorite was the Puss-N-Boots one where the cat granted a poor man's three wishes. He made him rich by getting him in a boxing match which he lost. He got him a big house by filling it with termites and so on. There were several versions of Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella as well.

A pretty good show. Like I said before, many memorable episodes like the counterfeit boxtops one, or how about the one where metal mice devoured everyone's television antennae. How about Bullwinkle's fortune- telling bunyon? Bill Scott is the voice of Bullwinkle. June Foray does Rocky and Natasha. Paul Frees is Boris. Edward Everett Horton is the Fractured Fairy Tales narrator. Scott, Frees and Horton are no longer with us, but June Foray is still around. She's still doing all kinds of different cartoon voices. Her most popular work is Granny from Sylvester and Tweety cartoons. Rocky and Bullwinkle got their own movie in 2000, The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle. Live-action actors Robert DeNiro played Fearless Leader, Rene Russo played Natasha Fatale and Jason Alexander played Boris Badenov. Rocky and Bullwinkle remained animated and were voiced by June Foray and Bill Scott's son, Keith. That movie really blew! It sucked! I did not enjoy it. Don't bother seeing it! But definitely check out the cartoon if it plays on TV again! And remember what Rocky always says, "Hokey Smoke!"
