This animator may end up more beloved by adults than kids. With jokes for all ages, the puns are aimed at adults . It’s witty, smart, sweet and sentimental. For kids, it’s an entertaining history lesson as Mr. Peabody and Sherman time-travel, thanks to Mr. Peabody’s WABAC (way back) time machine. Adults will appreciate the sharp humor.
Sounding uncanningly like “Frasier” star David Hyde Pierce, it’s “Modern Family” star Ty Burrell who voice-stars as the bespectacled smartest/most accomplished dog on earth. Burrell’s tv daughter, Ariel Winter, also star-voices, along with Stephen Colbert, Leslie Mann, Allison Janney and as Mr. Peabody’s adopted son, Sherman, it’s the kid who played a 4 year old Peter Parker in “The Amazing Spider-man” in 2012, Max Charles.
The 3-D makes this already colorful animator even more lively. It’s an absolute joyride through history. I loved it.
