The Art of Mr. Peabody & Sherman by Jerry BeckMake way for Mr. Peabody and Sherman, DreamWorks Animation’s new comedy about a dog and his boy. Yes, you heard right—Mr. Peabody’s IQ is so high, this dog is actually the world’s smartest person! So smart that he’s even invented the WABAC, a time-traveling machine that he and his pet boy Sherman use to explore the world throughout the ages. Based on the beloved 1960s cartoon, Mr. Peabody and Sherman is a role-reversal reinvention like no other. Barreling through time, Peabody and Sherman explore the universe, crossing paths with the likes of Marie Antoinette and Leonardo da Vinci. But when Sherman uses the WABAC without permission and history starts to spiral out of control, the results are disastrous—and hilarious, thanks in part to a cast that includes such comedic stars as Ty Burrell, Stephen Colbert, and Mel Brooks. The imaginative spirit of the film is captured here from beginning to end with concept art, character backgrounds, design inspiration, and exclusive behind-the-scenes information. The Art of Mr. Peabody and Sherman is the ultimate keepsake for families and film fans alike.
Mr Peabody & Sherman, review
The super-intelligent beagle and his boy Sherman once rescued Ludwig Van Beethoven from the middle of a busy intersection filled with cars—in 19th-century Vienna! And Marie Antoinette giggles like a buffoon while stuffing her face with various fancy cakes. As a successful inventor, scholar, and business icon, Peabody smugly presumes it should be easy for a multitalented creature to raise a child. Sherman even informs his classmates about apocryphal stories, simultaneously debunking perpetuated historical myths while roving through wildly inaccurate scenarios. In trying to attach a moral arc to the story, the filmmakers pull focus from the whimsical disregard for actual events.
Witty enough for adults and fun enough for children, this time-travelling animated adventure proves a surprisingly enjoyable history lesson.

By David Gritten. Dir: Rob Minkoff. U cert, 91 mins. Preceding its US release by a whole month to capture that crucial half-term audience in Britain, Mr. Mr Peabody Ty Burrell is a wealthy dog, and a remarkable one: an inspired inventor, masterchef, multi-linguist and mathematical genius, with a patrician voice, a pedantic manner and a weakness for puns.
