WABAC to the Future Back Story

Postby Tetsuwan Penguin » 1 year ago

About 6 years ago I posted a story that was a crossover between Astro and 'Mr. Peabody & Sherman'. (viewtopic.php?f=10&t=9249&hilit=wabac)

AFAIK, neither the Cartoon nor the Movie ever gave a good backstory origin for Mr. Peabody, only that he was a dog born with an IQ of 240 who adopted a boy named Sherman. Back in the late 1970's I worked for Digital Computer Corporation. There was an amateur cartoonist in the software department who went by the name of 'Cosmic Charlie', who created a character named 'Digital Dog'. It seemed to me that 'D.D.' was inspired by Mr. Peabody, so when I wrote my fan fiction I adopted Digital Dog's origin story for Mr. Peabody. I mentioned that cartoon in the story, along with the business about a recombinant DNA bee that looked a bit like Richard Nixon. Well I finally found that cartoon strip and scanned it. So here it is, "Digital Dog and the DNA Monster that ate Cambridge Mass." Do you think DD was inspired by Mr. Peabody?
