11: Horrible Histories
(Prefacing this post with a slight change to the previously established guidelines for this experiment: there are some days when I struggle to come up with something specific that made me happy. There are days when I struggle to come up with anything that made me happy. And there are days where I could make you a list. To reflect that, I'm eliminating the once daily posting, to hopefully be replaced with more frequent posts, even if they're just a series of embedded videos.)

I only discovered Horrible Histories a few days ago when videos began popping up on my flist. They're kind of awesome, pretty accurate to my eye, and fun to watch; take a look!

The shorts were shown between cartoons on Saturday mornings in the 70s, mostly covering grammar, US history, and science. They were revived in the 90s, so I more or less grew up on them. The sketches most people are familiar with (which also happen to be my favorites) are Conjunction Junction, I'm Just a Bill, and Interplanet Janet.
