WABAC with Jimmy, Too!

Well, I was a tad surprised yesterday by how few people knew who Mr.Peabody was and how  I was trying to relate the two photos! I wish I had made a contest out of that one for sure! Jackie, you would have been the lucky winner..... I thought for sure my title of  .....Wayback With Wilson..... was a dead giveaway!

The cartoon show from the early 60's, was part of  the Rocky and Bullwinkle Show, known as Peabody's Improbable History. I think I knew it more as Mr. Peabody and the WayBack Machine. Reading through the Wikipedia page , I realized my memories where a tad off, but I was quite young when I watched those shows! Mr. Peabody created the WABAC time machine as a way to teach his young friend, Sherman, about history. I definitely didn't know it was called WABAC, which was a  take-off on early computer acronyms such as UNIVAC and ENIAC. I thought it was Wayback, but now as an adult, I can certainly understand the pun that would have gone over my head at the time.

Here's a picture of Mr.Peabody and Sherman as they enter the WABAC machine. Does it stir any memories?

While reading up on this topic today, I learned there is a new Dream Works animated movie coming out in the  spring of 2014, Mr.Peabody and Sherman . I guess that isn't surprising as Hollywood seems to love remakes!

At any rate, I took the WABAC machine to August of 2007 to bring you this shot of Jimmy on Day One with us.(Wilson's picture yesterday was his Day One as well!) Even at that young age, his intensity shows through!

Oh, Mister Peabody!!


  1. Oh, that Jimmy pup! Gorgeous! I'm sure another case of love at first sight.

  2. So knowing all about the show makes me old. :( But I love seeing little Jimmy! *SQUEEEEE*

  3. Hi Y'all!

    Oh he is so CUTE! Handsome really!

    Drop on by my blog and pick up an Award from us.

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  4. That explains it ....we never had that show over here. No wonder we were stumped. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly.

  5. Wow! Ears up! And Wilson and his ratty (day one) are squish-able cute!

  6. So adorable!!!!!

    I DO remember that even though I was born in 1970 - so maybe I saw it on reruns? I wasn't an avid watcher of that as much as I was of SuperFriends (remember the Wonder Twins?) and Mighty Mouse. It's sad that they don't make cartoons like that anymore, in my humble opinion.

  7. I win I win I win! I don't care that there was no contest! I'm super competitive so a shout-out and bragging rights alone are good enough for me! :) And, yes, I just got excited about proving that I'm old. I LOVED Sherman & Mr. Peabody - but I had no idea it was the WABAC machine. Learn something new (and super important) every day.

    Cute cute cute Day One pic!

  8. Yes, unfortunately I remember Mr. Peabody. I also loved Gilligan's Island.

  9. Oh, I loves that baby pic!! Sooooo cute!
    And, YES, I knew exactly who you were talkin' abouts....just don't tell anybody!

  10. Forgot about the WABAC Machine....just remembered Mr Peabody and his boy Sherman.

    Love that baby picture.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

    SHE's so old SHE remembers Crusader Rabbit!

  11. Yep, mum remembers Mr Peabody. She is pretty old though, hehehe. Jimmy looks soooo cute. NO worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  12. No, no memories of that at all! Pretty cool to read about though!

  13. I remember Mr. Peabody and Sherman, and I don't recall that it was spelled WABAC either. Jimmy sure did have focus and intensity as a puppy! So cute!

  14. He looks just like my Oliver.. :)
