** The fact that, much like ''TinyToonAdventures'' and ''{{WesternAnimation/Animaniacs}}'', this show once again pisses off the censors with as much radar-dodging crap as possible (some of which is pointed out by Lydia Karaoke). Added bonus for the fact that the censor character here is often treated like a ButtMonkey (read: ignored, injured, and overall defied).

Added DiffLines:

* FlatCharacter: Most of the cast, really. As opposed to ''Tiny Toons'' or ''Animaniacs'', the leads on this show usually had only one side, one joke, one reaction to anything, though, for this show, it was more about making fun of history than developing characterization.

* HistoricalVillainUpgrade: Napoleon is run through a ringer in this one, to almost impossibly inaccurate levels.



* ShownTheirWork: The series has its moments, it's an amusing show that is all about bringing a subject that is typically perceived as stuffy and irrelevant to younger people. In particular the series does a good job on the Second World War, giving a basic (it is a kid's show after all) outline of the lead-up to Nazi Germany and doesn't particularly gloss over the less-mentioned parts of the war (i.e. alliance with the most assuredly non-democratic Soviet Union and the postwar Europe debacle) that often escape mention in other sources.

Their sketch on the New Deal is a fairly well researched snapshot on FDR's programs.

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 {{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.

Added DiffLines:

* FanDisservice: The World's Oldest Woman as Lady Godiva and Cleopatra in "A Tribute to Tyrants". When portraying the former, she is seen following the famous legend of Lady Godiva riding on horseback naked, while her portrayal of Cleopatra depicts her in the tub a couple of times while wanting Julius Caesar or Mark Antony to scrub her back.
* FateWorseThanDeath: In "A Tribute to Tyrants", Julius Caesar and Mark Antony are both so horrified by Cleopatra's affections towards them that they find being faced with their historic deaths to be more pleasant than Cleopatra flirting with them. Unfortunately, [[spoiler:Cleopatra reunites with them in heaven after she dies.]]

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: All in all, not so much "getting past" the radar, as running over the radar dish with a bulldozer. Lydia Karaoke was created to often step in to tell the characters that what they're doing is inappropriate for TV. Because she's an AcceptableTarget, she either gets ignored or injured.

-->'''World's Oldest Woman''': I dated the missing link. Lemme tell ya, [[GagPenis he wasn't missing much]].

** The ''PinkyAndTheBrain'' theme music can be heard when Chit Chatterson mentions brain removal in a sketch about mummification.

** 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 doll based on 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), 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).
