Histeria! is an animated series created by Animaniacs creator Tom Ruegger and produced by Warner Bros. Animation. Like many of its predecessors, Histeria! derived most of humor from its slapstick comedy and satire, with the distinction of combining historical figures and events (as the show was made in part due to the FCC's demands for more educational programs on television). Episodes commonly featured a large cast of children and typecast adults in comedic skits and song parodies. 65 episodes were planned, but due to budget concerns, production was cancelled at 52 episodes.

The World's Oldest Woman and Lucky Bob, two characters prominently featured on Histeria!, notably debuted in Animaniacs segments that aired years before Histeria! premiered. A few (but not all) of the historical caricatures from Animaniacs were notably also reused for Histeria!
