Like ''{{Histeria}}'' and ''TimeSquad'', ''Horrible Histories'' was a kids' edutainment show that had a reputation for GettingCrapPastTheRadar, usually in the form of alluding to historical events that most history teachers and textbooks will gloss over or try to {{bowdlerize}}. Unlike the other two shows, ''Horrible Histories'' was live-action[[note]]though it had a short-lived animated series[[/note]], from the United Kingdom, and it didn't so much as ''get'' crap past the radar as it inundated the radar with the very crap it was trying to get it past, then danced on the radar's grave after it inevitably suffocated. The UK DVD version even has the show rated PG for its dark comedy (mostly comedic takes on violence, death, and historical atrocities), gross-out humor, and sexually suggestive asides and jokes.

* The Black Spot: A fearful pirate points out a black spot on the face of a nearby waitress. His friend assures him it's only Warty Wendy, who was "born like that", before adding under his breath "She's got another one..."



* Also the [[Film/SnakesOnAPlane Snakes on a Ship/Elephants on a Plain]] sketches, in which the word "Carthaginian" is substituted for... [[ClusterFBomb another word.]]



* The ''epic'' hair-sniffing scene--and later CallBack--in the Alexander the Great sketch; hinting hard at his rumoured '[[BiTheWay flexible]]' preferences.



* Throughout [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2O09WE2cH8c&feature=youtube_gdata_player the finale video]], there's two Greek bloked who keep hugging each other... Considering the Greeks in general were known for that kind of behavior, it feels like a case of [[MakesSenseInContext Make Sense in Context]].
* In the online game, they actually make mention to the ancient egyptian aristocracy's tradition of brother-sister incest.

* In classic British style, much of the verbal humour especially is likely to sail right over the kiddies' heads. The most audacious example is probably in the ChristmasSpecial, wherein a sadistic, whip-wielding prison guard tells Baynton, "I think I can speak for all the lads when I say, 'You're our favourite prisoner'." Yes, [[PrisonRape they actually went there]].
* There's a song set in a monastery featuring errant monks partying with a "funky nun" while the bishop isn't looking. Her closing thoughts? "Ah, men!" A cleverly PG presentation of what were basically orgies behind monastery walls between nuns and monks.
* The Black Spot: A fearful pirate points out a black spot on the face of a nearby waitress. His friend assures him it's only Warty Wendy, who was "born like that", before adding under his breath "She's got another one..."
* Bob Hale gets off a lulu in the Pharaoh Report: "Tutankhamen's daddy became a mummy, which is a very complex operation."
* There's also the wink and lip-bite George II gives the camera (and repeats in the the Prom special) while singing the line "I was the bad one..." Not to mention George I singing about how ladies "would do anything for me, or I'd have their husbands killed..." with a big eyebrow raise on "anything".

-->'''Charles II:''' Henry VIII's in there with his personal bottom-wiper. Calls him the Groom of the Stool. Very popular job in his day, apparently... ''[aside, to George III]'' Not my kind of party, but to each his own...
* Apparently, the Cash My Sin number (a riff on the medieval Church requirement that you pay to keep out of purgatory) is [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything 0800-I've Been Naughty.]] Dang.
* Also the [[Film/SnakesOnAPlane Snakes on a Ship/Elephants on a Plain]] sketches, in which the word "Carthaginian" is substituted for... [[ClusterFBomb another word.]]
* The visual for this moment in the 'Burke & Hare' song is kept tastefully vague, but:
