Rocky and Bullwinkle is a 2014 direct-to-video CGI animated short film on the Blu-ray 3D release of Mr. Peabody & Sherman. This short was directed by Gary Trousdale.


For 50 years, Fearless Leader and his top spies Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale have been trying to “keel” their archenemies Rocket J. Squirrel and Bullwinkle Moose, and for 50 years they have failed. At last they have the answer: to catch moose, you must become moose! Fearless Leader has created a Lady Moose-Bot that Boris will “drive” (from within!). He will woo Bullwinkle, get him off guard, and when the moment is right, take him out. Then it will be Rocky’s turn. Unfortunately for Boris, Bullwinkle is as hard to do away with as ever, and every attempt on his life ends up boomeranging back on poor Boris. At least the romance goes well, and soon Bullwinkle and the Moose-Bot are getting married on a cruise ship. When Rocky discovers that his best friend is about to marry Boris, he tries to put a stop to it but Natasha stands in his way. Will Rocky warn Bullwinkle in time? Will Boris finally do in his old nemesis? Tune in next time for "Another Fine Moose You’ve Gotten Me Into, or The Man In The Iron Moose!" At Bullwinkle's poetry corner Bullwinkle was going to read us a poem (which is really a rap song.) by Marshall Bruce Matters the 3rd also known as Eminem called Superman. He reads it but stops himself to find out it had a swear word in it so then Bullwinkle skips the rest and said next time he'll read the complete works of 50 Cent.

Back at the wedding on the cruise ship Rocky found out Boris was in the Lady Moose-bot all the time so while Bullwinkle dances with Boris in the robot to Jimmy Soul's song If You Wanna Be Happy Rocky fights Natasha with a sword knife battle. And Rocky asks her Why does Fearless Leader wants to kill us anyway? and Natasha said If he saw his rumpus room with all dead animal heads then he'd get it. When Bullwinkle dances with the Lady Moose-bot Boris gets into some trouble by getting hurt with a bowling ball. Finally he gets out of the robot by pressing a self destruct button and he and Natasha land into the ocean and Rocky sends the Lady Moose-bot into the ocean where it explodes and Boris and Natasha get eaten by a shark. Finally Rocky and Bullwinkle win and nothing would ever come between them again. Until Rocky sees a female squirrel robot with a lighted fuse on it's head and Bullwinkle says Hey Rocky I think she likes you. Back at Fearless Leader's head quarters Fearless Leader tries to find his bowling ball. He asks his mother where it is and she replies Did you look in your killer robot? ending the short.
