There’s something quite unique about the latest blast-from-the-past Dreamworks Animation entry, “Mr. Peabody & Sherman.” It’s humorous and fast-paced but, above all, it’s smart.

The history of Mr. Peabody (a dog) and Sherman (his boy) dates back to early 1960s television, as short cartoons within Jay Ward’s “The Rocky & Bullwinkle Show.” Those who remember it may recall dry humor, sarcasm and minimal action. These were certainly not your typical loud and outrageous cartoon types. The new film reawakens the old characters in a big, contemporary way that will satisfy the kids and entertain the adults.
