Mr. Peabody is a know-it-all dog – total jerk – who, with his pet boy Sherman, jumps around in time and meets all manner of historical figures. The duo, originally part of The Rocky & Bullwinkle Show
, are getting their own feature-length 3D CG-animated film, called Peabody and Sherman
, and Robert Downey Jr.
will voice the uppity canine. More than a marquee name will be required to train up this dog, however. Let us never forget The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle
, and the fact that it will always number among Robert De Niro’s film credits. --Adam Rosenberg
