Mr. Peabody and ShermanThe movie version of the classic cartoon, Mr. Peabody and Sherman was beloved by critics and moviegoers when it hit theaters, even though DreamWorks was disappointed with the film’s $110.7  million box-office performance.

Based on characters who first appeared in the late 1950s and early 1960 animated TV show Rocky and His Friends and The Bullwinkle Show, Mr. Peabody and Sherman tells the story of an advanced dog, Mr. Peabody (voiced by Modern Family‘s  Ty Burrell) and his adopted son Sherman (Max Charles, The Amazing Spider-Man 2). While on an adventure in their WABAC time machine, the pair accidentally cause a rift in time and must go on other adventures to fix it.

The cast also includes Allison Janney (Bad Words), Stephen Colbert (Company) and Leslie Mann (The Other Woman).

Rated PG, the family film was directed by Rob Minkoff (Stuart Little 2) and got a tidy 79% approval from critics when it was in theaters. Entertainment Weekly‘s Owen Gleiberman wrote, “Back in his day, Mr. Peabody was a dog whose over-civility had bite. Now he’s a genius you want to cuddle with.”

All the home versions are packed with special features. Here are the lists:

Mr. Peabody and Sherman DVD boxDVD:

● Tour of the WABAC Machine – Mr. Peabody, himself, takes us on an in-depth tour of the WABAC machine. He explains what many of the WABAC’s knobs, buttons, and gizmos do. Exactly what is a Pneumatic Dressilator? A hemidemisemiquavatron? And, those windshield wiper controls…how exactly do they help while speeding through the space-time continuum? Mr. Peabody explains it all!

● Time Travel: Mad Science – We talk to real physicists Kenneth Wharton and Anthony Aguirre to find out if there is any possibility of time travel, and if so, how it would work. We explore the two time travel theories of the Block Universe and the Multi-Verse. We also learn why scientists think only forward time travel is possible, and how Einstein’s Theory of Relativity still determines how scientists imagine the possibilities of time travel.
