Funny / Mr. Peabody & Sherman

Go To

  • When asked if he feels up to being a parent, Peabody merely says "How hard can it be?" The judge just peers at him for a long beat over his glasses. Any parent watching this is probably snickering at what Peabody is in for...
  • When the first trailer was used as a lead-in ad for YouTube videos, Mr. Peabody precedes the trailer by hypnotizing the viewer into not skipping to the main video.
  • That 'pop' sound when both Sherman and Mr. Peabody are literally shot out from The Sphinx's rear from the trailer.

  • On his first day at school, Mr. Peabody gives Sherman a dog whistle as an encouraging gift. Sherman tries it out, but claims that it's not working after he cannot hear it. Mr. Peabody sure does...
  • As well as the honking noise made by the mechanical child created by Leonardo da Vinci.
  • "If you think we're going to leave you here (in Egypt), you are most definitely in denial."
    "Haha Beat... I don't get it."
  • "You used the WABAC!?"
    "Yyeeeahh... she was into it..."
  • Both Penny and Sherman are on Leonardo da Vinci's flying contraption:
    Penny: How do we take off?
    Sherman: Just pull down that lever.
    Penny: (hand on said lever) This one?
    Sherman: Oh boy . . .
    (the look on Sherman's face as they take off and while he's screaming the whole time is epic)
  • When the Petersons arrive:
    Mr. Peterson: So he's literally a dog.
    Mr. Peabody: I prefer literate dog.

  • Mr. Peabody and Sherman have to navigate a series of tiles on an Egyptian floor. Peabody gets through using scientific details, while Sherman...just babbles his way through with scribbles.
  • Whenever Sherman gets jealous.
    • When he first sees Tut (trailer version):
    Sherman: Who's that, Mr. Peabody?
    Peabody: King Tut.
    Penny: My boyfriend.
    Sherman: WHAT!!! His name rhymes with "butt!"
    • When he and Peabody are trapped inside the pyramid:
    Sherman: Well, if you ask me, we should let her marry that guy. They deserve each other.
    Peabody: What's that, Sherman?
    Sherman: Tut? Give me a break. Bald, wears a skirt and make-up
    Peabody: If I didn't know you any better, Sherman, I would say you were jealous.
    Sherman: Jealous? Of what?
    Peabody: Tut's affections for Penny, of course.
    Sherman: You think I Like Penny?
    Peabody: Mmm-hmm...
    Sherman: Give me a break! It's not like I want to hold her hand, or go to the park... or watch her while she's brushing her hair...
    (Peabody looks slyly while Sherman daydreams)
    Sherman: ... or anything!
    • And then there's Sherman wiping King Tut off the WABAC with the windshield wiper.
  • When the original Mr. Peabody returns from the Trojan War to find that Sherman broke the Never the Selves Shall Meet clause:
    Peabody: "Sherman! I've got to get you out of here before you touch yourself!"
    (Penny's parents and Ms. Grunion stare back, horrified)
  • This:
    Police Officer: Step away from the futuristic orb!
    Robespierre: I take orders from no man! Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité!"
    (the officer rolls his eyes and tases Robespierre)
    Robespierre: Ooh la la! (drops to the floor)
    Agamemnon: Hahaha...don't tase me, bro.
  • Mr. Peabody getting a presidential pardon from George Washington, Abraham Lincoln...and Bill Clinton.
    Clinton: I've done worse.
    • While Clinton is a somewhat notorious president, he's still alive in present day. A possible implication is that he was just in New York at the time, and wandered into the movie's plot.
      • Though it's unlikely former-President Clinton would have tried to invoke pardon powers. More likely, this is Clinton from when he was President, as his term did end before Sherman was born in this movie.
  • The fact that Odysseus is a short fat guy with a gruff voice.
  • After the whole "I am a dog!" bit, Spartacus appears and cries "I am Spartacus!"
  • Agamemnon saying you do NOT want to be at Oedipus's house over the holidays. "It gets awkward."
    Odysseus: Should we bring it in?
    Agamemnon: It'd be rude not to.
  • When the historical figures are shown utilizing present-day culture in their own time periods, George Washington shows off the dollar bill with his face on it to the ladies. Benjamin Franklin shows him up by showing off the $100 bill with his face, and the ladies run to him. Especially funny in that Franklin was quite the Kavorka Man in his time, so it may not just be the $100 bill...
  • Stephen Colbert's description of the plot in the "There's Nobody Like Peabody" featurette.
    Stephen Colbert: It's a classic story of a dog who adopts a boy and then travels through time. We've all been there.
  • In Ancient Egypt, Peabody disguised in an Anubis statue informs the Grand Vizier that Ra wants the wedding between Penny and Tut called off. The Vizier says they already ordered the catering, to which Peabody in a booming godlike voice says, "Too bad, you're going to lose your deposit!" Cue the entire crowd screaming in terror.
  • Not even the real Albert Einstein can solve that confounded Rubik's Cube!
  • While Mr. Peabody and Sherman are running from Robespierre and his Reign of Terror, they both fall into an Absurdly Spacious Sewer. Sherman, unfortunately, falls face-first into a puddle, and then shouts "Aagh, this water tastes disgusting!" and Mr. Peabody quips "Interestingly, that's not water!"
  • Sherman tries to hammer in a loose part of Da Vinci's WABAC-recharging apparatus, which results in Mr. Peabody getting hit in the face... several times.
  • The beginning of the Reign of Terror, after Marie Antoinette says the infamous 'Let Them Eat Cake' line.
    Random Peasant: WAIT!!! What kind of cake? (Gets punched.)
  • The blooper reel. Even if it doesn't seem like a blooper reel at all, as they were played in some trailers and TV spots, and neither Peabody or Sherman appear to be flubbing anything from a script.
  • Everything to do with the Trojan Horse, from the Greeks dropping from the hole in its backside like the horse's own waste to the unexpected delivery of a smaller Trojan Horse.
    Agamemnon: A present! Nice.
  • Agamemnon's speech about fathers.
    My dad was a minotaur. Half-man, half-bull, all judgment.
