Tiffany Ward, daughter of Jay Ward, one of the creators of the original series, is the executive producer.
Mr. Peabody & Sherman are based on the characters from the Peabody’s Improbable History segments of the 1960s animated television series The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show. The Improbable History segments were created by Ted Key, and was voiced by Bill Scott, while Sherman was voiced by Walter Tetley.
I always loved the The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show and the Peabody’s Improbable History segments were some of my favorites when i was kid. I just hope they were able to catch the essence of the characters.
