Looking for a show (series) you can watch with your kids,
Try the BBC's Horrible Histories (streaming on Hulu and Amazon Prime)
In the vein of Monty Python's Holy Grail & Life of Brian and Black Adder series and certain SNL sketches.
It is a Childrens' BBC comedy series based on the best-selling books written by Terry Deary and illustrated by Martin Brown.
Starting out in the Savage Stone Age, Horrible Histories progresses through the Awful Egyptians, Rotten Romans, Vicious Vikings, Measly Middle Ages, Terrible Tudors, Gorgeous Georgians and Vile Victorians, right up to the Woeful Second World War.
Covers mostly UK history, but also has sketches of USA pioneers.
Liberally splattered with guts, blood, farts, poo & pee, Horrible Histories romps through the ages in a collection of sketches, cartoons and quizzes.
Each episode features a mixture of sketches from different ages, played by the ensemble cast,
and commentary from the show's host Rattus Rattus - the talking rat.
The show also includes pastiches of some familiar TV formats such as
Historical Wife Swap, Historical Hospital, Historical Celebrity chef, and Ready Steady Feast;
and various spoof songs, for example a musical journey through 18th Century British history in the style of a Westlife ballad, sung by four King Georges.
All in an attempt to be humorous and educational.
I found it to be very fun and informative.
Discovered it initially when I was living in the UK about 9 yrs ago.
