''History of the World Part I'' is a 1981 comedy film written, directed and produced by Creator/MelBrooks. He is also part of the main cast if not the main character. Starting out with the Dawn of Man, cavemen discovering fire, cave paintings, and the art critic, the film skips to various 'important' areas of history usually with a unique interpretation of the events. Following this, the film touches on Moses receiving the Fifteen... er, Ten Commandments then takes time to waltz through the Roman Empire and end up at the Last Supper. They then sing and dance during UsefulNotes/TheSpanishInquisition, [[Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus though nobody expects it]]. The French Revolution comes next with Brooks playing King Louis XVI and the piss boy, [[ItMakesSenseInContext don't ask]], that turns into [[PrinceAndPauper the Prince and the Pauper]] though it ends well through a [[LiteralMinded miracle]]. Before the credits are 'ComingAttractions'.

** The French Revolution section is largely a spoof of ''A Tale of Two Cities''.
