Mr. Peabody & Sherman

As a big fan of the original Peabody's Improbable History segment featured on Rocky & Bullwinkle (Gamma/Jay Ward; 1959), I absolutely loved the new movie Mr. Peabody & Sherman (DreamWorks/20th Century Fox; 2014), which I saw on its opening weekend!  Not only did it respect its source material (while updating it to suit today's tastes), but the title characters look and act just like their original counterparts!  This is the film Underdog (Spyglass/Disney; 2007) should've been, and then some.

And so, I was finally inspired to do a drawing of Mr. Peabody & Sherman themselves, using an amalgam of the styles from both the original series and the new movie!  Drawn just now (March 30) on tablet in FireAlpaca.
