As someone who really detested the film adaption of Peabody’s Improbable History, I will be the first to admit that if any good came out of it, it’s that new generations will have an introduction to these wonderful characters. Which is why it’s very nice that on October 14th DreamWorks Classics will release a DVD collection containing every single segment of Peabody’s Improbable History.
For all those old-school fans (like myself) who want to rekindle their love for the witty and wonderful misadventures of Mr. Peabody and Sherman. Now you can! With this two-disc DVD set containing all 91 episodes of the time-traveling duo.
However, if you happen to be one of those “old-school fans” who owns The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle box set (like me) there’s no reason to double-dip. This collection is meant for casual viewers of the series, especially those who favor Mr. Peabody over Rocky and His Friends. As such, this set contains no bonus features of any kind.
If you want more bang for your buck, I recommend picking up the Rocky and Bullwinkle box set instead. Which comes with a plethora of extra content.
Ordinarily I’d be giving a rating for picture and audio quality, but since this a DVD (a standard definition format) as opposed to a Blu-ray, it benefits as best as it can.
Thankfully Peabody and Sherman is a standard definition series, so the format works for the series in question. No need to worry about any visual or audio faults here.
