Kids today have so many choices for entertainment it’s like a vast wasteland of suck to sort through to find one gem of a program like Mr. Peabody and Sherman.
Back in the day when we had… omg… three networks and no Playstations to entertain, life and choices were so much simpler.
Saturday mornings were consumed with Rocky and Bullwinkle, Clutch Cargo and Thunderbirds. Joining the Moose and Squirrel was a very smart dog,Mr. Peabody and his pet boy Sherman. What a team they made as they stepped into the WABAC (pronounced way-back) machine and took us on a trip through history to meet some of the worlds most important figures from days past.
Oh, man, that was great television.
So now all these years after Rocky and Bullwinkle got edged aside for The Simpsons and South Park, Peabody and Sherman are getting an animated reboot in a 2014 feature with A-list actor Robert Downey Jr., providing the voice of the canine genius.
The role of Sherman has not been cast yet.
Most people under 30 will not know who Sherman is.
