Netflix has become an important player when it comes to TV cartoons. The streaming service / network has re-booted several TV cartoons, or adapted animated movies into TV shows. The New Mr. Peabody and Sherman Show, from DreamWorks Animation, is an adaptation of both the original TV cartoon and the feature film.

But this is Mr. Peabody and Sherman like you've never seen them before. Talk show hosts!

ICYMI, Mr. Peabody is the smartest dog in the world. His boy, or owner, is bespectacled Sherman. In the original cartoons, which were part of , they used their WABAC machine to travel back in time and meet important historical figures.

In The New Mr. Peabody & Sherman Show, they're now zany late-night comedy show hosts, who broadcast from their swanky penthouse in front of a live studio audience. In between juvenile stand-up routines (and I mean that literally, because this show is aimed at young audiences), Mr. Peabody and Sherman meet up with people like Cleopatra and George Washington.

The first thirteen episodes will drop on Netflix beginning October 9, 2015. Let's take a look at the historical figures who will be guests on The New Mr. Peabody & Sherman Show, the cast and whether or not it's worth your time.

Sherman has his own weekly segment on The New Mr. Peabody & Sherman Show, called "Sherman's Corner," where he talks about things that interest him. He invites poet and author Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849) to chat, and dresses up in his best Goth style for the interview. Because he's a young boy, he is frequently distracted from his original topic.
