Buy it... if you easily absorb the positive energy that exudes from Danny Elfman's more mainstream children's music, this entry an entertaining diversion saturated with amusing in-jokes.

Avoid it... if you demand truly memorable moments of awe or a neatly sustained narrative, neither of their absence fatal to this work but both nagging flaws.

Mr. Peabody & Sherman: (Danny Elfman/Various) Performing well enough with family audiences to be a success but not really overwhelming either parents or critics was 2014's Mr. Peabody & Sherman, an animated take on the titular characters from the original 1960's "The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show" on television. Several production hiccups, the most major of which saw the film progress from live action to animation, and constantly moving release dates plagued Mr. Peabody & Sherman, but the finished product serves as an affable history and culture lesson that isn't particularly kind to the timeline of the world but still at least teaches kids some basics. The anthropomorphic dog Mr. Peabody is the smartest puppy on the planet and invents a time machine. When he adopts an equally shunned human baby and that boy eventually becomes old enough to travel through time and cause substantial disruptions to the space-time continuum, the adventurous chase is on. Throw in the obligatory young girl as a budding love interest, several humorous pokes at temporal paradoxes, and a range of cameos of famous historical figures ranging from baby Moses up to Bill Clinton (and Mel Brooks voicing Albert Einstein in between). Enthusiasts of the concept were supposed to be treated to a theatrical short film with Rocky and Bullwinkle attached to Mr. Peabody & Sherman, but it was withheld until the home video release. Director Rob Minkoff had worked with a wide variety of composers over the previous ten years, including Alan Silvestri and Mark Mancina, but he and Dreamworks turned to Danny Elfman for Mr. Peabody & Sherman, a relatively conservative choice given the composer's expanded forays into animated children's films in recent years. Elfman's approach to these kinds of assignments only varies to the extent that he allows the wacky mannerisms of his Tim Burton-associated projects to bleed through into his otherwise standard take on the animated realm of music. His just previous duo of Epic and Oz the Great and Powerful featured above average output for this lighter side of life, and along with Frankenweenie this body of music always seems to provide for a solid listening experience. While the score for Mr. Peabody & Sherman follows the same basic formula and has its fair share of highlights, its frantic and constant shifting of gears to account for the travels of the characters causes it to become a more challenging experience.
