In Mr. Peabody & Sherman, Mr. Peabody (voiced by Ty Burrell) is a highly successful entrepreneur, inventor, Nobel laureate and father, not to mention talking dog who invented a time machine known as the WABAC (way-back machine). Mr. Peabody adopts a son, Sherman (voiced by Max Charles), who is seven years old. Sherman mistakenly tells classmate Penny (voiced by Ariel Winter) about the time machine sending them on a history-changing adventure.
When Mr. Peabody learns of this happening, he springs into duty to take Sherman and Penny back to revert their changes before the space-time continuum is irreparably destroyed. What follows is a comical adventure back in time to meet a number of colorful characters like Sigmund Freud (voiced by Mel Brooks), Leonardo da Vinci (voiced by Stanley Tucci) and Mona Lisa (voiced by Lake Bell), among others. Stephen Colbert, Leslie Mann, Allison Janney and Patrick Warburton also provide voices in the animated film.
Mr. Peabody & Sherman joins theaters already buzzing about other films such as The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Lego Movie, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, and Frozen.
Don't Tell Her About the WABAC
Mr. Peabody: Share your interests, tell her about the woody antidote. Make it work! Don't tell her about the WABAC!
Sherman: "Sigmund Freud says if you don't like a person, they remind you about something you don't like about yourself."
Penny: "What do you know about Sigmund Freud?"
Sherman: "More than you think"
Penny: "Sure, just like you know all that stuff about George Washington not really cutting down the cherry tree. Ugh, what a crock!"
Sherman: "But it's true!"
Penny: "How do you know?"
Sherman: "I just know!"
Penny: "Did you read it in a book?"
Penny: "So how do you know, Sherman? How… Do… You… Know?"
Sherman: "He told me!"
Penny: "Who told you?"
Sherman: "George Washington"
Penny: "George Washington?"
Sherman: "He calls it the WABAC. Uh, well, now that we've seen it, maybe we should go back."
Penny: "Are you kidding? Where should we go first?"
We Must Rewrite History
Mr. Peabody: "You've used time travel improperly! We must rewrite history in order to save the universe!"Mr. Peabody is startled to learn that Sherman and Penny used the WABAC and changed history. They must fix things ASAP before there are serious consequences.
Sherman: "Who's that, Mr. Peabody?"
Mr. Peabody: "King Tut"
Penny: "My boyfriend"
Sherman: "What?! His name rhymes with 'butt!'"
King Agamemnon: "Odysseus, what news do you bring?"
Odysseus: "Someone left this for us."
King Agamemnon: "A present! Nice! It looks just like our horse."
Odysseus: "Should I bring it inside?"
King Agamemnon: "It'd be rude not to."
Mr. Peabody: "Peabody here"
King Agamemnon: "I did not see that coming!"
