Mr. Peabody & Sherman is a 2014 American 3D computer-animated comic science fiction film featuring the characters Mr. Peabody and Sherman of the 1960s animated television series The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show. Mr. Peabody & Sherman features the voices of Ty Burrell, Max Charles, Ariel Winter, Leslie Mann, Stephen Colbert, and Allison Janney. Mr. Peabody is an anthropomorphic dog who is the smartest being in the world. As a pup, he was rejected by every potential owner, leading him to devote his life to science, athletics, and technological discoveries. One day, Peabody finds an orphaned infant and legally adopts him under the name of Sherman (age 7). He tutors Sherman through a series of adventures throughout history with the use of the WABAC, a time machine. After narrowly escaping the French Revolution, Sherman starts his first day at Susan B. Anthony School in New York City, and falls into conflict with classmate Penny Peterson, who he innocently shows up in history class with his first-hand knowledge of George Washington. Penny bullies and humiliates Sherman, insulting him by calling him a "dog" for being raised by one, which provokes Sherman into biting her. Peabody visits Principal Purdy about the matter, but is confronted by Ms. Grunion, a bigoted child and family services agent who threatens to remove Sherman from Peabody's custody if an upcoming home inspection is deemed unsatisfactory.
