He’s our closest look yet at the upcoming DreamWorks Animation Television series, The Mr. Peabody and Sherman Show. Starring Chris Parnell (Saturday Night Live, Rick & Morty) as Mr. Peabody and Max Charles (returning from the Mr. Peabody movie) as Sherman, the program debuts exclusively on Netflix October 9th.
The Mr. Peabody and Sherman Show presents the co-hosts interviewing a menagerie of historical figures, like George Washington and Edgar Allen Poe, as well as time traveling (as in their classic Jay Ward cartoons) via the WABAC machine to the days of history’s most prominent figures, who are bent on accomplishing anything but what they’re known for – if not for a little help from Peabody.
Historical figures Mr. Peabody and Sherman visit in the first several episodes include Napoleon, Cleopatra, Mozart, and Marco Polo. Peabody and Sherman is DreamWorks Animation Television’s seventh show under a long-term multi-episode deal with Netflix. Here is a first look at the opening title sequence – below that, a trio of exclusive photos.
