But having come from the creators of ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' and ''{{WesternAnimation/Animaniacs}}'', this show, which centered on comedic sketches loosely based on historical events and topics, was actually pretty much the best show to come out of the CTA. Sadly, this went unnoticed in its original run, which had the bad fortune to debut just as the ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' anime came to America and destroyed all competition.

One season (52 of the planned 65) of episodes were produced before the show was cancelled over budget concerns (i.e. being $10 million over it), then were repeated numerous times for the next three seasons before being taken off the network in 2001. Unlike its predecessors, ''Histeria!'' did not reappear in syndication on Creator/CartoonNetwork or {{Creator/Nickelodeon}}. The show would've disappeared altogether if not for the fact that, in 2006, it reappeared as part of the initial lineup of Time Warner's [=In2TV=] channel until they were inexplicably removed in January 2009. After years of KeepCirculatingTheTapes status, a MOD DVD set of the complete series was released in July 2016 on Amazon.com and Warner Bros.' online store. Tom Ruegger [[https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/4ehhxz/iama_tom_ruegger_creator_of_animaniacs_ama/d20d9xu has expressed an interest in rebooting the show]].

** Clark Kent's appearance as William Clark, of course. Additionally, Superman made two other cameos as himself (one of which had his "S" emblem written as "F", which some have speculated is a nod to ''{{Freakazoid}}!'').

** The "Peace, Land, and Bread" song implies that Lenin seized power directly from Tsar Nicholas when he was actually removed by the advisory parliament and the Petrograd Soviet; Lenin took over six months after this. He wasn't even in the country at the time.

** Some of their sketches have the air of being on a sketch comedy show for adults (i.e., ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'', ''Fridays'', Creator/MontyPython, or ''Series/{{MADtv}}''), but is made all the more shocking by being in a sketch show for kids. Some examples include: "My Buddy Stalin" (a family-sitcom starring Joseph Stalin), "General Sherman's Campsite" (''PeeWeesPlayhouse'' set during the Civil War with General William Temeusch Sherman as Paul Reubens' hyper ManChild character Pee-Wee Herman, who is now obsessed with burning Atlanta, Georgia to the ground), and the [[BannedEpisode banned sketch]] "Convert or Die" (a game show set during The Spanish Inquisition where contestants have to choose between converting to The Catholic Church or being tortured for being a heretic).
