1A web series from [[Creator/RoosterTeeth the guys]] who make ''Machinima/RedVsBlue''. Historical figures talk about [[DepartmentofRedundancyDepartment history]]. Has since been discontinued. Can be watched [[ here]]----!! Provides examples of:%% * AffablyEvil: UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler.* AmericaSavesTheDay: {{Averted}}. Russians are quite distinctly named as the people attacking Hitler's bunker.* AnachronismStew: In the Julius Caesar episode, Julius has ordered and begun eating some Little Caesar's pizza. By extention, the entire series qualifies for this since every individual featured wouldn't have even known what the Internet is since it didn't exist in their time period.* ArtisticLicenseHistory: The Lincoln episode has Lincoln celebrating the end of the war, and talking about viewers supporting him for reelection. Lincoln had already won a second term by the war's end.* BadBoss: Hitler screams at some poor soldier who sacrificed his life for him.* CreatorBacklash: Burnie confessed at RTX that the group did not like this as much as their previous projects.%% * CuteMute: Pocahontas.* DawsonCasting / YoungerThanTheyLook: Pocahontas is only [[spoiler:twelve]], and played by a woman in her late 20s. This is, of course, [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]].* DiggingYourselfDeeper: John Smith's attempts to placate Mr. Hontas with a feast is not going well...--> '''John Smith''': *after sneezing into a blanket and handing it to Mr.Hontas* I'm sure we can work out this smallpox-- Small problems...* DirtyOldMan: John Smith.* DrivenToSuicide: Hitler, obviously.* DoubleEntendre: John Smith fails at these.-->'''John Smith''': I'd like her to land on my Plymouth [[{{Pun}} Cock]].-->'''John Smith''': I'd like to poke-her-hotass, if you know what I mean.* HypocriticalHumor:-->'''UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler''': Who would not want to work for such a nice person as me?* OffhandBackhand: Abraham Lincoln does a firearm variation of this to a would-be assassin. This is ironic, [[FridgeBrilliance considering how he]] [[BoomHeadshot died...]]* StupidSexyFlanders: UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler, as a result of being played by Joel Heyman.* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: Lincoln, after taking out an assassin with a rifle: "THAT'S RIGHT, BITCH! I'M PRESIDENT!"* WhamLine:--> '''"Mr. Hontas"''': How.--> '''John Smith''': [[ValuesDissonance Oh, look, one of the savages is trying to speak! You know, they only have brains the size of dogs.]]--> '''"Mr. Hontas"''': How can you do this?--> '''"John Smith"''': Every position possible.--> '''"Mr. Hontas"''': Do you know how many summers have passed since her birth?--> '''"John Smith"''': No, but I've seen [[UnusualEuphemism her full moon.]]--> '''"Mr. Hontas"''': [[spoiler: [[PaedoHunt Twelve.]]]]--> '''"John Smith"''': [[OhCrap Uh oh.]] This is new information. *to Pocahontas, offscreen* [[spoiler: TWELVE]]?! YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!
