Growing up there was one cartoon that I can remember watching religiously, and that was The Rocky & Bullwinkle Show. After the painful The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle, to the equally agonizing Boris and Natasha, down to the Dudley Do-Right movie there hasn’t been a single film based on the classic cartoon series that did justice to the source materials wit, satire, or charm.
Now here we are again and another film based on one of the shows many supporting segments has been picked up by a major motion picture studio. That film is, of course, Peabody’s Improbable History.
DreamWorks Animation has announced plans to bring the time-traveling adventures of Mr. Peabody & Sherman to the big screen. The classic stories of the beloved, bespectacled dog and his pet boy will be updated for the 21st Century as an all new computer-animated comedy feature.
Directing the film will be Rob Minkoff, who hasn’t helmed an animated feature since 1994’s The Lion King . The only down side is that the script will be written by Andrew Kurtzman, the guy who penned the screenplay for Down Periscope and Camp Nowhere.
