Stump the King: Histeria - VIDEO

Some of the cast of HisteriaI finally got a question I can answer this week.

Monica writes...
"My friend used to watch this cartoon, but all he remembers is this one character. He says he was a small small guy with a really tall hat. He wore a black robe. He was some kind of emperor..Hm..He was somewhat Asian looking. He thought the name of the show might be hysteria, but i can't find anything on that. anything you can think of will be greatly appreciated. It's one of those i have to figure it out or it'll kill me things. Haha. Thank you."

Well, Monica, if you take a look at the picture, I think it's clear that your friend was indeed talking about the animated series Histeria. The reason you couldn't find any information on the show was, as you may have figured out, the spelling.

Histeria was a great animated show that gave the kids a lesson in history with every episode. Each episode was liberally peppered with pop culture references that made the lesson a little more fun.

Here's a clip...

Now for this week's question...

On Histeria, many of the President's were given the voices of famous comedians (for instance in the above clip, Woodrow Wilson sounds like Woody Allen). Which comedian's voices were used for George Washington and Abe Lincoln?

Congratulations Toby OB. You got the right answer!
