Kid History is a Web Video Series on YouTube created by various members of the Roberts family — most notably, the children. In each episode, the kids tell their own Very Loosely Based on a True Story version of something that happened in the lives of the adults. While their narration and dialogue plays, the adults then act out whatever their children said happened, usually playing their younger selves, and matching their actions and dialog with the kid's version. Hilarity Ensues.
Another series hosted on their YouTube channel called Kid Snippets features a similar premise where a couple of the kids act out a purely fictional story based on a prompt, again with the adults acting out the result.
Kid History contains examples of:
