Horrible Histories is an animated series based off the book series of the same name, running from 2001 to 2002.

The Animated Series shows examples of following tropes:

  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: From the Lewis and Clark's Expedition episode:
    Random Character: You guys must be the new CIT's, right?
    Mo: What's that, Cartoon's in Time?
  • Elmuh Fudd Syndwome: Mo in the UK version.
  • Field Trip to the Past: The entire premise of the series. In each episode, Stitch and Mo would be transported to a different historical era, which would help them learn a lesson or solve a problem in their everyday lives.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Mo.
  • I Need to Go Iron My Dog: Chickening-out version: the animated program featured a smart-mouth jerk attempting to get out of Grecian-style wrestling by claiming to have sprained his oesophagus.
  • Interactive Narrator: The narrator constantly talks to the characters, and appears to be responsible for the time travelling.
  • Lame Excuse: The animated series featured a smart-mouth jerk attempting to get out of Grecian-style wrestling by claiming to have sprained his oesophagus.
  • Limited Animation: One of the most severe cases of this. Characters move very non-linear and choppily. The ditial ink and paint is the only thing that has you convinced that this show was actually produced from 2000 to 2002.
  • Meadow Run: Starts when Mo and Stitch are reunited in the American Revolution episode. They decide against it at the last second.
  • Red Shirt: A generic man dies in every episode.
  • Same Language Dub: Mo and the narrator were voiced by different actors in the UK, US and Australian versions.
  • Wheel o' Feet: Used in the animated series.
  • Who Names Their Kid Stitch?
