I had a lot of hesitation when it was announced that the beloved Mr. Peabody animated show was getting the 3D treatment in a new animated series.  The first trailer has arrived, and I’m still a little skeptical, but I do like the art style of How to Train Your Dragon, so maybe this won’t be the worst movie ever.

Mr. Peabody, the most accomplished dog in the world, and his mischievous boy Sherman, use their time machine—the Wabac—to go on the most outrageous adventures known to man or dog. But when Sherman takes the Wabac out for a joyride to impress his friend Penny, they accidently rip a hole in the universe, wreaking havoc on the most important events in world history. Before they forever alter the past, present and future, Mr. Peabody must come to their rescue, ultimately facing the most daunting challenge of any era: figuring out how to be a parent. Together, the time-traveling trio will make their mark on history.

Director: Rob Minkoff

Actors:Ty Burrell, Max Charles, Ariel Winter, Allison Janney, Stephen Colbert, Leslie Mann, Stanley Tucci, Patrick Warburton, Lake Bell, Zach Callison

Mr. Peabody and Sherman arrives March 07, 2014.

    Part of the charm of the Rocky and Bullwinkle show, as well as Sherman and Peabody and Fractured Fairy Tales was the low-budget, limited animation. Rendering Peabody and Sherman in 3-D really does the original a disservice. I suspect I will have the same reaction to the final film that I did to the 3-D Tintin movie. It was okay, but it wasn’t the Tintin I cared about. I prefer the 2-D animated cartoons which copy Herge’s original art properly. Speaking of 3-D versions of old cartoons, whatever happened to the 3-D Betty Boop cartoons they were supposedly working on a few years ago?
