* HilariousInHindsight: Even though Billy West (who did voice work on this show) went on to play Richard Nixon on ''Futurama'' (a year or so after this show aired), he didn't voice Nixon on the sketch that centered on the Watergate scandal on the episode "20th Century Presidents." JeffBennett voiced Nixon.

* EnsembleDarkHorse: At least the writers seemed to think of Loud Kiddington as this.
** Even the show's detractors say Charity Bazaar is the best character.

* NightmareFuel: Josef Stalin's song about what he loves can ''definitely'' be seen as this.

* NightmareFuel: Josef Stalin's song about what he loves can ''definitely'' be seen as this. One of the lyrics is even "Turning your dreams into scary nightmares".

* TheyJustDidntCare: About historical accuracy, due to RuleOfFunny and the fact that some historical facts had to be toned down for the show's audience (it's kinda like what happened with ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad'', though ''Time Squad'' often got away with some historical facts that most educational kids' shows wouldn't touch).

* 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.

** Related to the abovementioned CrossesTheLineTwice, General Sherman's song "The Fire Keeps Atlanta Burnin' Bright". You WILL find yourself humming it years after listening. Sample lyrics: "Come with me, march to the sea, with my scorched earth policy. Burn down every bush and tree, leading me to victory!"

** One of the sketches they had depicted Abraham Lincoln as Jerry Seinfeld complete with his own sitcom. Years later on ''SaturdayNightLive'', one of their most popular sketches would be...a sitcom with Abraham Lincoln (only it would be based on the FX sitcom ''{{Louie}}'', based on the life of comedian LouisCK).

*CrossesTheLineTwice: "General Sherman's Campsite," a ''PeeWeesPlayhouse'' parody set during the American Civil War, depicting General William Temeusch Sherman as Pee-Wee Herman and turning Pee-Wee into a PsychoticManChild obsessed with setting fire to Atlanta, Georgia. A YouTube comment stated this as "the worst thing [he] could have imagined..." before adding, "I love it."
