From the dawn of man to the distant future, mankind's evolution (or lack thereof) is traced. Often ridiculous but never serious, we learn the truth behind the Roman Emperor, we learn what really happened at the Last Supper, the circumstances that surrounded the French Revolution, how to test eunuchs, and what kind of shoes the Spanish Inquisitor wore.Written by

At the end of the movie there is a teaser-trailer for a (never to be released) History of the World: Part II, featuring a Viking burial, a "Hitler on Ice" number and a science fiction "Jews in Space". See more »
The Spanish Castilian video version didn't had the "critic scene" on the Stone Age segment. But it appeared on the DVD edition with subtitles. See more »

Mel Brook's best film, yet.
Classical comedy satire..Mel Brook's best film. Once you've seen this film, you will not forgot it. The punchlines keep rolling from the beginning of the film, and even past "the big ending". There is not much of a plot, but that is to be expected in a movie that contains a bunch of skits. If you like Monty Python, then you should love this movie. This movie is not for everyone, especially if you are easily offended. However the opening scene should tell you if you would have a problem watching the rest of the movie. This movie does currently rank in my top 10 comedies of all time.
