Heartwarming / Horrible Histories

  • The Frightful First World War being dedicated to Private John Condon, who was the youngest British soldier to die in the First World War, at fourteen years old.
  • The Horrible Christmas episode's sketch about the Germany/England football match on Christmas day.
    English Soldier: Great game, mate!
    German Soldier: Ja, ja! You want to change the shirts?
    English Soldier: That might not be such a good idea, under the circumstances.
    German Soldier: Aha! Hey, you a funny guy.
    English Soldier:: You're okay, too, chum. Happy Christmas.
    German Soldier: Happy Christmas!
    *they shake hands*
  • The Historical Dating Service sketch featuring the infant Mary Queen of Scots... as played by Mathew Baynton's own infant son, wearing a tiara and sitting in his father's lap.
  • Weaving in audio from one of Winston Churchill 's speeches at the end of the RAF Pilots song is weirdly heartwarming considering the actual song.
    • Also the fact that this song says "Some of the bravest men were Polish and Czech", giving a Shout-Out to some of the other nationalities that helped win the Battle of Britain.
  • The love ballad of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. After so many tales of royals marrying for power and money, it's nice to hear about a couple who really did care about each other.
  • Their sketch about James Hind manages to qualify. Hind was a royalist highwayman who refused to steal from fellow royalists, and in fact gave them money. The royalist couple's pleasant surprise never fails to make one smile.
  • Rosa Parks's song "I Sat on a Bus"; not only is it a great, uplifting ensemble piece, but it ends with a subtitle saying 'The Civil Rights Movement went on to end all segregation in America.'
  • The "Viking Land" Simon & Garfunkel parody song. Hearing about the peaceful things Vikings did to Britain for a change is very nice.
  • The series finale. (Warning: also counts as an epic Tear Jerker for fans of the show). "We're history... and we made it Horrible!"
    • In the final scene, the two Greek characters embrace each other as a sign of showing that they do care. Also, the two soldiers look at each other, knowing that they did well.
