Time to go way back again Sherman, I still don't get it...

Tuesday afternoon or evening is date night for my wife and I, and we are fortunate to be close to a movie theater that right now has quite a selection of good movies.

In the past two weeks we have seen both "Divergent" and "Mr. Peabody and Sherman."

Now, for those of you who are not familiar with "Mr. Peabody and Sherman", this came from a two hour cartoon series that ran on Saturday mornings in the early 1960s"  The series features "The Adventures of Rocky the flying Squirrel" and Bulwinkel Moose" Fractured Fairy Tales, Aesop and Son and of course Peabodys' Improvibal History.

The movie is well done, the animation is crisp and nearly 3D without the glasses and the story moves quickly.  As with the original series, Mr. Peabody and Sherman find themselves traveling through time to such events as meeting Leonardo Divinci and finding out why the Mona Lisa did not smile and why Divinci could not capture her smile, the Trojan Horse and Penny, Shermans' love interest, nearly marrying King Tut.

Things go wrong and the world faces total destruction, can Mr. Peabody and Sherman save the future and what do George Washing, Abe Lincoln and Bill Clinton have to do with this movie?

Here are two clips one from the original and one from the movie.  Enjoy
