Houdini meets Mr. Peabody & Sherman

Houdini puts in an appearance on the DreamWorks Animation series The Mr. Peabody & Sherman Show. In Season 4, Episode 5, "Gone Comic Gone / Harry Houdini", Peabody and Sherman time travel to 1895 to "teach Houdini restraint."

The show is pretty manic, but the Houdini storyline is fun. Harry starts off as an unsuccessful and overbearing "show off" magician (who bares a striking resemblance to Criss Angel). With the help of Mr. Peabody and Sherman, he transformers into the iconic magician of history. We even get to see him do his thumb racket!

Houdini is voiced by Jeff Bennett. The show was written by Mike Leffingwell.

The series is now airing on the Universal Kids TV network, but all four seasons are available on Netflix where this episode premiered on April 21, 2017.
