Waiting for 2010 #40: Histeria! for Today

I really liked the cartoon show Histeria!. It was a great successor to Animaniacs, which itself was light years beyond Tiny Toon Adventures. The show had a great balance of irreverent comedy for all ages (in layers of humor) and relevant historical information. Anyhow, here's a clip of the Spanish Inquisition short (seriously, the Spanish Inquisition in a children's show), which is relevant for today in at least two ways:

1. The dangers of totalitarianism and theocracy (a lethal combination for many), no matter the political and/or religious starting point. (Ahem, Iran, ahem.)

2. Lucky Bob's homage to the recently-departed Ed McMahon (click here or go to about 2 minutes and 38 seconds in the above embedded video). R.I.P. You are correct, sir. Yes now. Hi-yo!
