The Mr. Peabody & Sherman Show is an American animated streaming television series produced by DreamWorks Animation and Bullwinkle Studios.[2] The series is based on "Peabody's Improbable History", the 1960s segments that aired as part of The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends, and the 2014 film, Mr. Peabody & Sherman, which was also produced by DreamWorks Animation.[2] The series premiered on October 9, 2015, on Netflix.[2] The second season was released on March 18, 2016.[3] The third season was released on October 21, 2016.[4] The fourth and final season was released on April 21, 2017.[5] The series was removed from the streaming service in April 2023 along with Turbo Fast.[6]

The series is digitally hand-drawn, with the Vancouver-based DHX Media providing the animation.[2] Mr. Peabody is voiced by Chris Parnell, while Max Charles reprises his role as Sherman from the film.[2] Originally, according to The Animation Guild, I.A.T.S.E. Local 839, 78 episodes of the television series had been ordered, but only 52 episodes were aired.

The series debuted in the United States on Universal Kids on April 8, 2018.


Mr. Peabody and his son Sherman host a live TV variety show out of their Manhattan penthouse, with various historical figures as their guests that are brought to them through the WABAC time machine.[2] Half of the show is in a variety show format, with the other half being time travel adventures formatted like the original "Peabody's Improbable History" segments from the 1950s and 60s.

This show also introduces new characters like the robotic Orchoptitron, the building manager Mr. Hobson, the notary Mrs. Hughes, and Peabody's downstairs neighbors Christine Bluestone and the Yakamora family. The janitor Old Bill also appears where he is mostly seen during the credits.

Chris Parnell replaced Ty Burrell as the voice of Mr. Peabody from the 2014 film Mr. Peabody & Sherman. He auditioned for the role about a year and a half before the series' premiere. Trying to replicate Bill Scott's voice from the original cartoons as close as possible, he prepared by watching the 1960s show, and ended up doing his own interpretation of the character.[7]
