DreamWorks Animation’s Mr. Peabody & Sherman is about a genius dog and his adopted son who travel back in time at their leisure using their own personal time machine, the WABAC. Sounds like pure nonsense, right? Well, not entirely. There actually is a WABAC out there — it just isn’t a flying red orb that’ll plop you down in ancient Egypt or right alongside the real-life Leonardo Da Vinci.
Mr. Peabody (voiced by Ty Burrell) likes to use his WABAC machine to teach Sherman (Max Charles) about history by physically transporting him to some of the most well-known historic events like the Trojan War, a Marie Antoinette-hosted party and more. The real-life WABAC is the Wayback Machine and it actually got its name from the fictional device featured in Mr. Peabody and Sherman’s portion of the Rocky and Bullwinkle Show.
