Attached to "Mr. Peabody & Sherman" in theaters, DreamWorks' short "Almost Home" is a prologue to the studio's upcoming holiday feature - "Home". If the goal was to familiarize audiences with the lead characters, it would appear their hard work has paid off.

Bringing Jay Ward's Mr. Peabody - a TV cartoon classic - to the big screen had to have been daunting.

There’s no denying it - from the banquet of production art, concept sketches, backgrounds and other details that festoon this tome, Dreamworks' latest animated feature is sumptuous indeed. The Art of Mr. Peabody And Sherman explains what Lion King co-director Rob Minkoff saw in reviving these classic Jay Ward characters. And it looks pretty cool.

Sounds ridiculous, right? Well Steven Mallas at business website the Motley Fool doesn't think so, and he outlines his reasons why the information-obsessed Google should buy a hit-making Hollywood animation studio. Good idea? I don't think so.
