Horrible Histories

 (36)8.82010TV-PG
"Horrible Histories" is an energetic, surprising and unconventional take on history's most gruesome, unpleasant yet funniest moments. From the woeful World Wars, the miserable Middle Ages and the savage Stone Age to cut-throat Celts, groovy Greeks, rotten Romans, vile Vikings and awful Egyptians, history has never been so naughty.
