Histeria!

Show Summary

Histeria was the short-lived animated show on Kids' WB! The show was a cartoon look at one of the most boring subjects of all: History. This show takes that boring subject and molds it into entertainment while still teaching the viewers something. This show was hilarious with its off-the-wall and slapstick comedy takes on the Civil War, the American Revolution, and many many more. Never before has President Washington been in such a compromising position as when the Histeria gang comes along! Histeria! had 52 episodes. Though this show lived a short but enjoyable run, it was canceled due to low ratings, which were more or less caused by hype in the new show Pokémon which was a much cheaper show to produce and had a much bigger following. Characters Father Time - Based on the mythological figure, he is pretty much the ringleader of the cast, as he is usually introducing the sketches. He is very very old and doesn't like to be reminded of it. Big Fat Baby - A baby with a bad habit of stinking up the place. The kids frequently ask historical celebrities to change Big Fat Baby's diaper, saying that the last time he had a clean diaper was before something that happened a long time ago. He is a parody of Baby New Year, because the sketches always begin with a shot of him wearing a ribbon dictating whatever year it takes place in. Miss Information - Usually shown leading three unnamed adults and two kids around, this ditzy tour guide believes the whole world is a museum she works for and often gets her facts wrong. World's Oldest Woman - An old lady who apparently pre-dated everything and tries to date every man she meets Loud Kiddington - The leader of the Kid Chorus, so named for his constant shouting. He often reenacts loud moments in history. Fetch - Loud's talking dog who loves chasing after his tennis ball. He bares an interesting resemblance to Hunter from Road Rovers. Charity Bazaar - A clinically depressed blonde girl ("I'm not happy") who is willing to take a stand for animal rights. Froggo - The Kid Chorus' frog-voiced inventor, who often borrows things to use for his inventions. Aka Pella - A sassy African-American girl. Pepper Mills - An obsessive autograph hound who is always mistaking historical figures for pop cultural celebrities. Toast - Pepper's absent-minded boyfriend who is completely sunburnt and hosts a talk show titled Ask Me If I Care. Cho-Cho - A Chinese girl who likes to persuade people into buying whatever it is she's selling them, ranging from candy to magazine subscriptions, and won't stop badgering them until they agree to her demands. Lucky Bob - Cho-Cho's mentally handicapped assistant (and possible boyfriend), who frequently quotes Ed McMahon's catchphrases. Pule Houser - An overweight kid who is always taking damage or whining about something. Susanna Susquahanna - A Native American girl with a big gap between her front teeth, which gives a humongous lisp that makes it difficult for her to say even her own name correctly. Bill Straitman - A no-nonsense interviewer. Mr. Smartypants - A genius who is incredibly shy and hides his face in his pants. Chit Chatterson - A crazy salesman of some sort. Lydia Karaoke - A network censor for The WB who tries to make sure the show doesn't overstep the network boundaries. Sammy Melman - A smarmy network executive. Nostradamus - The famous historical soothsayer, depicted as speaking like Jerry Lewis and constantly telling people to shut up.moreless
