|Mr Peabody Sherman |
Travel back in time 55 years to 1959 and the first series of the American animated show Rocky and his Friends, later to be called The Rocky Bullwinkle <a href=http://www.sacchanelpascher2014.com>sac chanel pas cher</a> show, and it included a short segment called Peabody Improbable History, starring a super intelligent dog and his pet boy Sherman travelling through time.
Fast forward again to 2014 and the characters have been revived for the big screen by DreamWorks in Mr Peabody and Sherman. This time, in the hands of The Lion King director Rob Minkoff.
star Ty Burrell provides the voice of Peabody a talking dog, business titan, inventor, scientist, Nobel laureate, gourmand, and two time Olympic medallist.
The cast also included the voices of Burrell on screen daughter Ariel Winter, Stanley Tucci and comedy stars Stephen Colbert, Leslie Mann and Mel Brooks.
"It was important to us from the beginning to <a href=http://www.tiffanyoutlet-2014.com>tiffany and co outlet</a> be as authentic as possible to capture the spirit of the original but for a new audience," says director Minkoff.
It was originally created by US television animation legend Jay Ward, who also came up with characters like George of the Jungle and Dudley Do Right.
Each <a href=http://www.saclouisvuittonparis.org>louis vuitton pas cher</a> short segment saw Peabody and Sherman use his WABAC (or Wayback) machine to travel through time to visit historical figures such as Napoleon, Lord <a href=http://www.cybermondaytiffanydeals.com>tiffany and co cyber monday</a> Nelson and Leonardo Da Vinci.
"I think Rob and DreamWorks have done a very good job in being very respectful to the original series," says Burrell. "We been working with Jay Ward estate and his daughter Tiffany and they gave us the thumbs up after seeing it which was a big relief."
Burrell, 46, is best known to TV audiences as the well meaning but clumsy "cool, dad" Phil Dunphy in the hit US series a role for which he has won one Emmy and been nominated for three more.
"I had done some TV voice work and I done some commercial voice work but this is my first feature film and I tried to enter into it with <a href=http://www.tiffanysale-uk.co.uk>tiffany jewellery uk</a> my ears and eyes opening in terms of learning," he explains.
The film sees Peabody and Sherman travel to ancient Egypt, and Italy and Troy
"I wanted to be respectful of Bill Scott who was the original voice and pay homage to him but also it important that I create my own voice.
"The first voice was essentially me imitating Bill which is completely unsustainable because he is in such a higher register than me, I have a very deep voice, so that was ill advised and then slowly it worked back down, still erudite but maybe less glib."
Burrell was not the first choice for Peabody, he took over from Robert Downey Jr who was announced back in 2011. But Minkoff has nothing but praise for his new leading man.
"It was the balance of his intellect and rationality but we also wanted to show his heart and warmth, even though it central to his character that he has trouble expressing his emotions," he says.
At the core of the story is the relationship between a father and his adopted son, albeit in this case a role reversal of the relationship between a boy and his dog.
A key scene shows Sherman, upon being told that, as the son of a dog he must himself be a canine, reacting by biting one of his school classmates.
Burrell says the story has resonance personally as the father to two adopted daughters.
"I have two young girls, I have an adoptive relationship which was another meaningful part of taking this job," he says.
"Their love for each other as father and son becomes the most important thing to both of them. Peabody wants to be a good dad and Sherman ultimately loves his dad and wants to be a good son."For his part, Mr Peabody and Sherman is Minkoff first full length animated feature since 1994 The Lion King still the second biggest grossing animated movie of all time, with takings of more than $422m.
The huge box office success of recent animations like Despicable Me 2 and Frozen, agrees Minkoff, is why we are in a "golden age" of animation.
Burrell won best male actor in a comedy series at the Screen Actors Guild awards earlier this month
"I think because the technology has raced ahead and made so many things possible," he explains. "But for audiences, animation is going through this era of being accepted. People are enjoying animated films in numbers that are unprecedented.
"As long as the audiences are there, more will be made," he adds.
In 2011, The Lion King was retro fitted in 3D and re released in cinemas. Mr Peabody and Sherman will be available to audiences in both 2D and 3D.
With recent evidence suggesting that 3D audiences in Britain are dropping off, Minkoff insists that animation in particular is almost always improved by the new technology.
"I really enjoy 3D, which is to say that it is a wonderful medium and certain films are fantastic to watch in 3D.
