DVD • Piggybacking on the impending release of the theatrical movie "Mr. Peabody and Sherman," a second volume of the original cartoons is being released on DVD. It will bring back great memories if you watched them when you were a kid; it will surprise anyone who isn’t old enough to remember them with their dry wit, charm and inventiveness.

They were, after all, produced in the late ’50s and early ’60s as the "Peabody’s Improbable History" segments of "Rocky and His Friends" and "The Bullwinkle Show." Mr. Peabody is a professorial talking dog; Sherman is his boy — his adopted son.

They travel through time in the WABAC (Wayback) Machine, encountering famous figures and getting into jams they must escape by returning to their present. Volume 2 features visits to Christopher Columbus, Captain Matthew Clift, Captain Kidd, Leif Ericsson, Ferdinand Magellan, Francisco Pizzaro, Marco Polo, Ponce De Leon, Vasco Nunez De Balboa and Zebulon Pike, and it’s great fun.
