“Peabody’s Improbable History” segments appeared on the classic Rocky and Bullwinkle Show in the late 50s and early 60s. Mister Peabody, a dog genius, would take inquisitive Sherman way back in the WABAC (play on early computer acronyms) machine to relive a moment in history. Comical tellings of real historical events always ended with a Peabody pun, to which Sherman would respond, “Oh Mr. Peabody!” (Word has it that DreamWorks Animation is working on a feature film to be released in November 2013.) Also in Rocky and Bullwinkle, were the Fractured Fairy Tales where familiar fairy tales and children’s stories were “modernized” for giggles.
Well, we’re introducing our own dorkish duo, the real JMan (Jonathan) and Mr. Reginald T. Hedgehog, the hosts and narrators of Dorktales: Classic Storytelling with a Geekish Twist. The two will soon be available for live performances! Jonathan has a background in performing for children on stage and at school assemblies.
HOT NEWS! TOMORROW NIGHT WE’RE RELEASING OUR FIRST DORKTALES AUDIO STORY at the Dandelion Moms/Penelope and the Purple Pirate Facebook Party for Geek Club Books. Come to the party where we’ll launch and provide details for your FREE download.
