* {{Bowdlerise}}: Creator/{{AMC}} censorship ruins two of the film's best jokes.
** Original joke:
--> '''Dole Office Clerk''': Occupation?
-->'''Comicus''': Stand-up philosopher.
-->'''Dole Office Clerk''': What?
-->'''Comicus''': Stand-up philosopher. I coalesce the vapors of human experience into a viable and logical comprehension.
-->'''Dole Office Clerk''': Oh, a *bullshit* artist!
-->'''Comicus''': *Grumble*...
-->'''Dole Office Clerk''': Did you bullshit last week?
-->'''Comicus''': No.
-->'''Dole Office Clerk''': Did you *try* to bullshit last week?
-->'''Comicus''': Yes!
** TV version:
-->'''Dole Office Clerk''': Oh, a *bull-
-->'''Comicus''': *Grumbles*...
-->'''Dole Office Clerk''': Did you bull- last week?
-->'''Comicus''': No.
-->'''Dole Office Clerk''': Did you *try* to bull- last week?
-->'''Comicus''': Yes!
** Original joke:
-->'''Leader of Senate''': All fellow members of the Roman senate hear me. Shall we continue to build palace after palace for the rich? Or shall we aspire to a more noble purpose and build decent housing for the poor? How does the senate vote?
-->'''Entire Senate''': FUCK THE POOR!
-->'''Leader of Senate''': Good.
** TV version:
-->'''Leader of Senate''': All fellow members of the Roman senate hear me. Shall we continue to build palace after palace for the rich? Or shall we aspire to a more noble purpose and build decent housing for the poor? How does the senate vote?
-->'''Entire Senate''': (raise arms and grumble to themselves)
-->'''Leader of Senate''': Good.
** Arguably, Bowdlerising actually makes one moment ''funnier'':
*** Original version:
-->'''Roman Soldier''': Moooove that miserable piece of SHIT!
*** TV version:
-->'''Roman Soldier''': Moooove that miserable piece of SHOOOIIIT!

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'.
