Time Machines

WABAC Machine - Time traveling machine ("the WABAC") featured on the animated cartoon PEABODY'S IMPROBABLE HISTORY and first seen on THE ROCKY AND HIS FRIENDS/ABC/1959-61.

Mr. Peabody, Sherman and the WABAC Machine

The WABAC Machine was a large cluster of blinking lights and funny sounds with a central time portal entry/exit. It was created by a bespectacled, white dog with a bow-tie named Mr. Peabody (voice of Bill Scott) who with the assistance of his boy, Sherman (voice of June Foray), traveled back into an "improbable past" to help move along history.

Each episode began with Mr. Peabody saying, "Hello, out there. Peabody here" then asking Sherman to "set the WABAC for the year..."

At the end of each journey Mr. Peabody would tell Sherman some terrible pun. For example, while visiting Isaac Newton, we discover his brother Figbey Newton invented the "Fig" Newton; and on visit back in time to William Tell, we learn that William Tell's eye trouble inspired "TEL-evision"
