Mr. Peabody and Sherman

Posted: Updated:

It's time to hop in the Wayback machine. Mr. Peabody and Sherman is an old school cartoon with a modern day reboot.

Mr. Peabody is the smartest canine in the world. He invented everything from the fist bump to Zumba to the Wayback, a contraption that lets him and his adopted son, Sherman, travel back in time to learn about history hands on.

Ty Burrell voices Peabody, the dog that knows almost everything.

Max Charles is Sherman, his son who teaches him about being a father.

Doing this movie taught the stars about old school cartoons.

Max Charles: "It was cool because you're like playing the role that you weren't even alive when it originally came out."

To learn more about their characters, the actors had to use their own Wayback machine; YouTube.

Ty Burrell: "Does it look so old to you because you've grown up watching all this fancy animation? Does that just look like paper cut outs?

Max Charles: "Yeah, it's cool to watch like what they had back then and now. Animation now, it's like, so great how they do it.

Back then? Geez, it wasn't that long ago.

Ty Burrell: "I have a peripheral memory of it. My older brother was still a little young for when the series came out."

The characters are the same as their old school versions, just this time they're modern and the old dog learns a new trick or two.

Ty Burrell: "The shorts was all about Peabody being witty and funny and right and in this one, he's not right all the time.

    I'll never forget the endless summers I spent on the coast of North Carolina. My shoulders were always kissed by the sun, my hair was continually salty from the ocean and my one-piece, bright blue bathing suit was my constant companion.

    I don't remember dying, but I did. Twice. It was a chilly Fall morning in October at a dentist's office in Santa Fe. My mom had escorted me to what was supposed to be a regular wisdom teeth extraction appointment.
