Product Description

All 13 episodes of the CBBC series!

History with the nasty bits left in! Based on the bestselling series of books for kids (and for adults, but they just won’t admit it), Horrible Histories™ is an anarchic, surprising and unconventional take on history’s most gruesome and funny moments.

Foul facts, rotten rulers, beastly battles and evil inventions feature in horribly hilarious sketches, songs, cartoons and quizzes – all linked by the show’s host, a talking rat! From Woeful World Wars, Measly Middle Ages and Savage Stone Age to Cut-throat Celts, Groovy Greeks, Rotten Romans, Vicious Vikings and Awful Egyptians, history has never been so horrible!

DVD Extras
• Song Selector
• Quiz Time

Couldn't agree more with the other reviewers...this has got to be one of the funniest things on tv i've seen in ages. The series jumps back and forth thru different time periods so you dont get bored on one segment. The 'stupid deaths' bit always has me in stitches. This series is genuinely funny for both kids and adults and thoroughly recommended. My 5 yr old daughter loves it..and most of all....the information they get over thru the sketches, sticks in her mind. They really have tapped into a good way of getting kids interested in history. Favourite sketches...Stupid deaths, the 4 Georges boy band sketch, Henry VIII songs, Helen of Troy sketch, the Mummies sketch ("hello, I'm a shouty man")....there are just so many. Genius! Brilliant! Roll on the next series!

this is the most brilliant way to teach anyone history and to be able to retain the information. my family have enjoyed it and worth watching over. reminds me of the early days of monty python's flying circus but better. way to go bbc!

Well written jokes, puns and gags for all ages (I'm 24!), I've seen this twice and both times the jokes have brought a smile to my face, and occasionally full blown laughter. The cast is wonderful, excellent comic timing, a flair for slapstick as well as intelligent jokes, amusing songs, great costuming... can't wait for the next series to come out on DVD!

Quite simply, you have to buy this dvd. You really won't be disappointed. My 4 year old and 10 year old both love it (and i do too!) Hilarious and disgusting in equal measures, it's also really informative and educational. Can't wait for series 2 to come out on dvd, mainly as i'm hoping that it stop my youngest from playing the four Georges song 20 times a day.

I got this dvd pack for my sons birthday...he was over the moon with it! These dvds are the same as the programmes on cbbc...I nearly bought the other ones, thinking they were better value for money, but thankfully I realised! My son and all the family throughly enjoy these programmes, even my 18 yr old sits and watches them. A subject came up in conversation between myself and some friends the other week, and the only reason I knew the answer was because I had just watched it a few days previous on the Horrible Histories programmes!!It just goes to show that you never stop learning...I would highly recommend them!

I have bought this damn DVD TWICE...first time was for my Grand-daughter, an avid 'Horrible History' fan, TV, books the whole thing. Trouble was I larfed sooo much at this (childishly wicked) way of looking at things that when the DVD disappeared into her bedroom...(sulk, sulk...) I bought another copy for me...as ther missus would say, 'AT YOUR AGE!!!'. It's a brilliant way of depicting the past. Funny yet kinda accurate. A historical must for kids 6 to errrr..60......

My children (ages 5-10) all enjoyed watching the series on TV. It's informative and intersting but most of all very funny. By breaking each episode into various historical eras it never gets boring. The great thing is it spurs their curiosity and they are keen to learn more from alternative sources.
