Horrible History

YouTube has some amusing vignettes from a BBC series for kids, called Horrible Histories.

 

The Guardian, left wing socialist rag that it is, has this to say,

 

CBBC’s Horrible Histories is a wonderfully curious thing: wildly praised, yet woefully undersold as really funny … for a kids’ show. But Horrible Histories isn’t just the best show on children’s television – it’s one of the smartest comedies on TV.”

 

 

Some clips are annoying, but most have some redeeming humor quality, though surprisingly, the humor in a fair number is pretty pathetic. In the case of the Aztecs and their bean and corn diet for example.

 

Worth 20 minutes of sorting through.  The video embedded above to appears to have been a smash hit overseas.
