Mr. Peabody is a business titan, inventor, scientist, gourmand, two-time Olympic medalist and genius...who also happens to be a dog. Using his most ingenious invention, the WABAC machine, Mr. Peabody and his adopted boy Sherman hurtle back in time to experience world-changing events first-hand and interact with some of the greatest characters of all time.

Early in the film Sherman says that the Leaning Tower of Pisa didn't always lean (suggesting that he caused it to lean). In fact the tower of Pisa has always leaned ever since it was built, due to an uneven settling of the foundation. The lean got progressively worse until structural modifications were put in place to reinforce it around the year 2000. It is now declared safe for at least 200 years. However, Peabody cartoons often contain deliberate inaccuracies for the sake of a gag (in the original skit he explains that they're seeing history as it "should have been"), and this in particular is a subtle reference to the Galileo skit from the original cartoons.

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.
