Historical shorts whose goal is to make Canadian history as boring, lame, and respectable as possible. The actors appear to be given about 35 seconds to rehearse the script, which usually appears to have been written in about four minutes (by a friend of the producer's). They are the quintessential product of upper-class Canadian culture -- a condescending attempt to interest the proles in "their" history.
"Oh, you crazy Canadian kids!" is an actual line from a Canadian Heritage Moment.
