Steampunk Addie's Improbable History

It probably will come as no surprise that Momma and I are both looking forward to the upcoming moving picture, Mr. Peabody & Sherman. 

Mr. Peabody & Sherman is a computer-animated adventure comedy film based upon the characters from the Peabody's Improbable History segments of the 1959-1964 animated television series, The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show

Although the television show ended days before Momma was born, watching reruns was an anticipated event in her life. 

The Rocky & Bullwinkle Show (known as Rocky & His Friends during its first two seasons and as The Bullwinkle Show for the remaining seasons) featured the serialized adventures of the two title characters, Bullwinkle the moose and Rocky the squirrel.

Supporting segments included Dudley Do-Right (a parody of old-time melodrama), Peabody's Improbable History (a dog and his pet boy Sherman traveling through time), and Fractured Fairy Tales (classic fairy tales retold in comic fashion), among others.

Rocky & Bullwinkle was known for its quality writing and wry humor. Mixing puns, cultural and topical satire, and self-referential humor, it appealed to adults as well as children.

That is why we are looking forward to the moving picture's (re)scheduled March 7, 2014, release.

Mr. Peabody, the most accomplished dog in the world, and his mischievous boy Sherman, use their time machine - The WABAC - to go on the most outrageous adventures known to man or dog. But when Sherman takes The WABAC out for a joyride to impress his friend Penny, they accidentally rip a hole in the universe, wreaking havoc on the most important events in world history. Before they forever alter the past, present and future, Mr. Peabody must come to their rescue, ultimately facing the most daunting challenge of any era: figuring out how to be a parent. Together, the time traveling trio will make their mark on history.

Are you ready to leave your mark on history?
