Funny: Histeria!
  • Chit Chatterson plays a boat salesman to Ivar the Boneless, a viking who sounds like John Cleese, who is planning to invade England and has come to purchase a ship with a savage-looking figurehead. Chit shows him boats with figureheads of a kitten, a baby duck, a puppy, and a butterfly, claiming them to be a lion, a dragon, a wolf, and a hawk, respectively, and tries without success to convince his customer that these figureheads are anything but what they actually are.
    Ivar: There's nothing scary here at all, is there? It's like all your ship's figureheads are being designed by a three-year-old!
    Chit: Oh, that's just not true!
    Ivar: No?
    Chit: No! Actually, I don't think he's over twelve months. [camera pans to reveal that Big Fat Baby is designing the figureheads]
  • Froggo's reactions to not being given a bag of marshmallows and a crate of leeches, and then a tambourine and a vat of spam, in "The History of Flight".

    Columbus: What is it?
    Loud: GUESS!
    Columbus: Land?
    Loud: [imitates buzzer] OH, I'M SO SORRY, NO! IT'S WATER!! YES, WATER! MILES AND MILES OF WATER! BUT WAIT! WHAT'S OVER THERE?! OH MY GOLLY! MORE WATER! WAIT! HOW ABOUT THAT THERE!? GUESS WHAT! MORE WATER! [tosses periscope away] YESTERDAY, WATER! THE DAY BEFORE, WATER! FOR THE PAST 70 DAYS, WATER! NOTHING BUT WATER! [face turns red] YOU STARTING TO GET THE PICTURE, CAPTAIN!?
    Columbus: I think the crow's nest needs a little vacation.
    • Loud Kiddington's outing as Erik The Red also gave him a funny lookout job, demonstrating how vikings kept land in sight in order to navigate.
      Loud: (quietly as crew sleeps) See it...see it...see it...<gasp> DON'T SEE IT! <crew wakes up and rows frantically> DON'T SEE IT! DON'T SEE IT! <whew> See it...See it...
      • After their journey to North America, entailing WEEKS if not MONTHS of being out of sight of land with Loud's ceaseless screaming...
      Viking crew: (exhausted) We saw it...we saw it...we saw it...

    Lucky Bob: Chocolate!
  • Bill Straitman interviewing Hakon the Good about how vikings named their swords.
    Bill Straitman: Well, tell us, what is this one called?
    Hakon the Good: Oh, this one here? This is Bob! Bob the Sss-word!
    Bill Straitman: Bob?
    Hakon the Good: Right! And that's Timmy over there! And right here is Greta! Greta likes Timmy, don't you, Greta? [as Greta] "That's right! I want to marry Timmy!" [as himself] But not if Bob has anything to say about it! Right, Bob? [as Bob] "That's right! You can't marry Timmy; I want to marry you!" [as Greta] "But I love Timmy!" [as Bob] "Too bad!

    Toast: Well, I don't think I can get there in a half-hour or less.
  • "Hi gang, Pop Quiz here! We ask several historical questions for our players then act flabbergasted at their overwhelming ignorance!"

    Basho: It is still too long! [screams and slices Poe's book in half]
    • Not to mention Emily Dickinson summoning Death itself to dispatch Sappho. She then tells Death to get her some tea, and he complies!
  • "Super Amazing Constitutions":
    Andrew Jackson: Now listen up! I'm General Andrew Jackson!
    Aka Pella: Oooh, are you related to Michael Jackson?
    Andrew Jackson: No! Although I do have an uncle who looks a lot like Tito. Now clear out! This here's no place for children.
    Aka Pella: It could be if you put in swings and a jungle gym.
  • At the end of the sketch where Elmer Fudd, as Gutzon Borglum, and Loud, as his son Lincoln, build Mt. Rushmore:
    Elmer: Aah, finished! West and wewaxation at wast! And thanks to your help, it only took fouteen yeaws to compwete.

  • "Histeria Around The World (Part 2)" opens with a Teletubbies parody called "The Histera-tubbies" with Charity, Loud, Aka and Toast playing Skanky Wanky, Louh-Louh, Sassy, and Toe, respectively. Needless to say, their reactions to their surroundings are priceless, as well as their reaction to the sun-baby (played by Big Fat Baby).
  • The Green Eggs and Ham homage with Loud and George H.W. Bush.
