Characters: Histeria!

Father Time

"The year, ____________. The place, _____________."

The host of the show, who knows historical dates down to the second and wear watches from his shoulder to his wrist. Voiced by Frank Welker.
  • Mad Libs Catch Phrase: The above quote. Sometimes he switches it and says "the place..." first.
  • Mister Exposition
  • Shout-Out: Possibly unintentional, but he does resemble Maestro from thee french series Once Upon Time Man; both characters are wise, long bearded old men who apparently are omnipresent through the ages to narrate in their series.

Big Fat Baby

Father Time's sidekick, and the reason why Histeria! was considered a Gross Out Show. He is an egg-shaped parody of Baby New Year with a nasty habit of crapping his diaper. Voiced by Luke Ruegger.
  • Fartillery: The Kid Chorus uses him as this in "Big Fat Baby Theatre".
  • Infant Immortality: Seriously, look at what he can survive in The History of Poland sketch.
  • Running Gag: The kids request help changing Big Fat Baby's diaper, claiming the last time he had a clean diaper was before something that happened a long time ago.

"Ask me if I care."

A Native American girl with a huge gap between her front teeth, which gives her great difficulty in pronouncing even her own name correctly. Voiced by Tress MacNeille.

Other Main Characters

Mr. Smartypants

The smartest man in the world, but also so incredibly shy that he wears really tall pants with which to partially cover his face. Voiced by Rob Paulsen.


Loud Kiddington's pet dog who is so named for his love of fetching round objects. Voiced by Frank Welker.

Chit Chatterson

An egotistical salesman with some sanity issues. Voiced by Billy West.

Bill Straitman

Sammy Melman

A smarmy network executive. Voiced by Rob Paulsen.

Lydia Karaoke

The resident network censor who sometimes objects to whatever antics the rest of the cast gets up to. Voiced by Nora Dunn.
  • Designated Villain: invokedShe's pretty much the closest the Histerians have to a recurring antagonist.
    • Butt Monkey: Sometimes, she gets the worst treatment out of all the characters (particularly when she gets blasted by torpedos and discovers the real reason why "Damn the torpedoes" is an appropriate phrase, despite containing a word that's considered taboo on American children's TV). The treatment is justified as, in most of Steven Spielberg's cartoons, network censors (along with studio executives and lawyers) are Acceptable Targets to mock and make into villains and ButtMonkeys.
  • Go Karting with Bowser: The fact that she's the network censor doesn't stop her from occasionally taking part in the sketches.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Lydia Karaoke is voiced by Nora Dunn (a mid-1980s cast member of Saturday Night Live who was fired after season 15 [the 1989-1990 season] due to her boycotting an episode hosted by shock comedian Andrew "Dice" Clay)
  • Media Watchdog, Moral Guardian, Political Correctness Gone Mad: Her character and appearance on the show represents how network TV cartoons back in the mid-to-late 1990s were being subjected to censorship and Executive Meddling (and her comic abuse is basically the creators taking potshots at the powers that be).
  • Think of the Censors: Inverted; the main cast doesn't care if what they say or do is risqué, but Lydia does.

Molly Pitcher

Molly Pitcher was a woman who supposedly carried water to cannon crews during the American Revolutionary War. It's said that when her husband, one of the cannon crewmen, was wounded during the Battle of Monmouth, she took his place at the guns. Now, she tends to show up whenever anyone in the series needs or talks about water (It's either her or Montezuma, and you don't want that!).
