DreamWorks Animation SKG today announced that two-time Academy Award nominee Robert Downey Jr. will voice the iconic character of Mr. Peabody, headlining the cast of the studio’s feature adaptation of animation legend Jay Ward’s classic TV series, Mr. Peabody & Sherman.  Rob Minkoff (Stuart Little, The Lion King) will direct the project and Jason Clark (Monster House, Stuart Little) will produce.  Downey Jr. will also serve as  executive producer on the project.

Mr. Peabody & Sherman marks Minkoff’s return to animation after 15 years. “It’s great to come back to my first love, animation,” said Minkoff. “The opportunity to make another animated feature with Jeffrey Katzenberg and the amazing team he’s built at DreamWorks Animation is truly a dream come true. I’ve loved the time-traveling adventures of Mr. Peabody & Sherman since I was a kid. There’s something irresistibly charming about the idea that the world’s smartest person is a dog who adopts a ‘pet’ boy.” I used to love this cartoon when I was kid, used to watch it all the time on Nickelodeon along with Rocky and Bullwinkle and Aesop’s Fables.
