Robert Downey Jr. updates vintage time travel machine

January 24, 2011

You may have noticed at the bottom of my sidebar I feature a link to a vintage episode of the “Rocky & Bullwinkle Show” because I always had a fondness for Mr. Peabody , his boy Sherman, and the wacky adventures they’d have in their Wayback time travelling machine.  (I’ve since learned the correct spelling is “WABAC.”)

Now, it seems that Mr. Peabody has traveled all the way from those 1960s cartoons  to 2014 to appear on big screens nationwide — in 3-D no less.  Mark your calendars.

Robert Downey Jr. will voice the erudite dog.  Directing the computer-animated adventure is Rob Minkoff (The Lion King, Stuart Little).

Haven’t met Mr. Peabody yet?  Below he heads back to 1513 to meet Ponce de Leon.
