This is a good character.

Mr. Sherman is a character created by Kiki. He appeared in the episode "The Tale of the Unexpected Visitor".


Mr. Sherman is the husband of Mrs. Sherman, and the father of Jeff and Bobby. He is a brilliant computer and software genius. He recently created a program called: The Peabody Project. It was a computer program that worked with a satellite system in space. In which a person could set up co-ordinance to any planet across the galaxy. Then send the planet a message. Then by seeing if anyone would reply back, it would prove that intelligent life really did exist on other planets.

During the events of the story, he and his wife were out for the evening. When his older son Jeff and his best friend Perch sneaked downstairs to the computer lab. His older son Jeff was a computer hacker. So Jeff wanted to use the satellite system to intercept a radio station and score he and Perch free concert tickets to the favorite band: World War 4.

Then when Jeff was busy making his younger son a banana split, Perch took an interest in the Peabody Project. Perch didn't really know what he was doing. But Perch inadvertently set up co-ordinance 456610237 to a random planet. Then Perch sent a random high note musical message to it. Perch immediately got a reply. Then a Yellow Light Alien instantly arrived to earth, from the contacted planet.

He soon found all of this out, when he saw that beings from the Yellow Light Alien's planet contacted them back. It sent about five replies. He was astounded and thrilled that his project worked. He may or may not have been aware, that the Yellow Light Alien that Perch invited to Earth was just a kid. Also that it captured his dog Montana, his younger son and Perch in yellow light spider webs. Then held them in containment in tubes on a spaceship. It also kept taunting Jeff, mimicking his voice and throwing balls at him. Jeff helped them escape by opening the tubes with a high musical note sound.

Soon the Alien's mother came to Earth. She informed his sons and Perch about what happened. The Yellow Light Alien's language was a series of high and low note musical sounds. So when Perch had sent them a high note musical message, it meant in their language: "We are toys". So her son came to Earth to try and play with them. The Alien mother apologized for the problems and inconveniences. Then she took her son and returned back to their planet.

Afterwards, he didn't punish Jeff and Perch for tampering with the Peabody Project. He was just so grateful and pleased that his project actually worked. Later on he may or may not have given Jeff and Perch permission to use it again. Since they used the program to send a musical message into outer space. It was to inform any listening life forms and extraterrestrials that planet Earth's life forms are not toys.
