Mr. Peabody and Sherman

Imagine a the smartest dog on the planet. Like smarter than Einstein, Newton and Steve Jobs combined. You’d end up with Mr. Peabody. When you are a dog this intelligent, well the courts will also let you adopt and that’s what he did. Sherman is the son of Mr. Peabody.  This is one area of the relationship between Peabody and Sherman that was expanded upon from the original Jay Ward cartoons Peabody’s Improbable History which originally aired in the 50s and 60s. I remember the reruns on Sunday mornings here in Southern California.


Ty Burrell (from Modern Family) is the voice of Mr. Peabody a super intelligent dog who is raising a seven year old boy Sherman voiced by Max Charles. Like any father, he wants his son to be smart and knowledgeable. The concept from the original show was that Mr. Peabody uses his WABAC time machine to  journey back in time and teach Sherman about history, or at least a slightly twisted version of history.  That premise lies in the background to the adventure in the new movie and leads to hilarious consequences.  However, the spin in the story comes when Sherman finds another use to Mr. Peabody’s invention, which wreaks some havoc across time.  The show pays homage to what made the original magical and includes plenty of humor to keep the adults entertained but without ever being inappropriate.


Ariel Winter plays Penny, Sherman’s rival and ultimately, travel companion. Winter and Burrell might seem obvious casting choices due to the popularity of Modern Family, but when they were initially cast over 2 years ago, Modern Family was only in it’s first season.  Winter has been doing voice work for cartoons since she was a young child. She currently also voices Sofia the First on television.


“Another talking dog movie” you might be asking? Mr. Peabody is not just any talking dog. He’s a brilliant one.  When asked about how they chose animation over live action for the film, Director Rob Minkoff (who directed The Lion King)responded, “I started to feel like the whole notion of a talking dog and a boy would be better in the kind of a fantasy world where you can accept a talking dog much more easily than if it’s a live action world. Because suddenly, there are a lot of questions about why does the dog talk. How does he talk? Is it weird? Do people think it’s normal? So, that’s really not the sensibility of the original show. The sensibility was that it’s an amazing character. He happens to be a dog, but nobody cares. Nobody bats an eye about it.”

Mr. Peabody and Sherman opens March 7th in 3D!

Islands Tasty New Menu Items

One of our favorite family restaurants is Islands. Have you been lately? They have revamped their kids menu to the new Gremmie Menu and added some delicious new menu items for grown ups. The kids menu has enough choices that even the pickiest kid will find something they like. Anything from mac and cheese to a hamburger, all with healthy side choices.

First off, there is the new Football Happy Hour Menu that includes new items like the pineapple-topped Hawaiian Sliders, which were awesome and great to share. It is easy to get filled up on just these great tasting appetizers and if you choose well, it might even me an inexpensive option versus entrees.  However, some of the new entrees are not to be missed.

The steak tacos were well seasoned and come with a side of beans. We fought over these! They are loaded with Grilled Steak, Caramelized Onions, Cotija Cheese, Cilantro-Chili Sauce, Lettuce & Pico de Gallo, and stuffed into Two Corn Tortillas.  photo 4

We don’t drink, but we brought friends that do.  They tried the new Makaha Maggie, a pineapple-infused tequila cocktail with Grand Marnier, Lemon-Lime Juice, Crushed Pineapple, Agave Nectar and a Cinnamon Sugar Rim. It was so good, they drank two!

 Classic starter items round out the happy hour menu including the Spinach Artichoke Dip.  The chips are light and flaky and this dip is to die for.  Nothing on the menu will run you over $7, with the majority of food coming in under $5.

My husband had the miso salmon veggie bowl.  He isn’t a person that eat a lot of vegetables, but he finished his entire bowl.

 Don’t wanna make dinner tonight? Take the family over to Islands. Odds are there is one nearby and if you hurry you can probably still make happy hour!
