Victorian Dragon's Den, Historical Wife Swap and Ready Steady Feast are among the spoof shows in the second series. The comedy songs were back by popular demand too and included the toe-tapping number Spartan School Musical and a Charles II song (with a nod to Eminem). Those making cameo performances included David Baddiel and Alexei Sayle.
Christmas is a time for charity, hope and goodwill to all men - but for Horrible Histories it's a time of farting jesters, finding bacon in your Christmas card, and having your dinner confiscated by Oliver Cromwell!
The third series covered every era from the Stone Age to the First World War, with new additions including terrible tales from the Angry Aztecs, the Fabulous French and the Nasty Knights. The series also featured a devilishly difficult ditty which features every Monarch from William the Conqueror to Queen Elizabeth II; plus an Adam Ant style homage to Dick Turpin, and songs about suffragettes and bad emperors.
Find out how historical figures such as Dick Whittington and Robert the Bruce get on pitching movies about their life story, and which Historical Apprentice teams will find out they're fired. The stars of The League of Gentlemen guest star too!
The fifth series of Horrible Histories was broadcast from late Spring to early Summer 2013. At the time it was thought the show was going to stop there, so it ended with an epic final song.
