A short film starring Rocky and Bullwinkle was supposed to be featured along with the film, but wasn't. (It was said to be a test for a possible animated feature film starring the two.) The short was reportedly pushed back for a later DreamWorks release, so it could run as a candidate for the Academy Awards' Best Animated Short of 2014 category. The short film Almost Home (2014) was featured instead. See more »

Mr. Peabody & Sherman is a nice update on the classic TV cartoon series
Just watched this with my movie theatre-working friend. It's based on "Peabody's Improbable History", a cartoon that always aired in the middle of the "Rocky & Bullwinkle" show and had Mr. Peabody, a smart dog with glasses, and Sherman, his adopted human son-also with glasses, going to various important events in history ending with some kind of pun often said by Peabody to a bemused Sherman. This version takes some elements from the pilot episode (Peabody adopts Sherman amid some troubles) and also adds somewhat of a girlfriend from school for the boy. With that out of the way, I'll just say that I found some amusement at much of the humor concerning some historical figures and some modern lingo and I did laugh out loud a few times. There's even some heart rending scenes I liked. But nothing beats the charm of the old cartoons even though they weren't the best artistically in animation. Still, the computer-animation is visually pleasing so on that note, I recommend Mr. Peabody & Sherman.
