Historically speaking, it's been one of our favorite series on Funny or Die for as long as we can remember. And now that Drunk History—an inebriated look at some of mankind's most important moments—is moving to the small screen, a celebration of historic proportions is surely in order. An all-star cast of "reenactors" (including Maxim faves Jack BlackDave Grohl, and Adam Scott) will take on figures like Teddy Roosevelt, Patty Hearst, Lewis and Clark, Billy the Kid, Al Capone, and John Wilkes Booth. Before watching the entire first episode here, check out three of our favorite moments from the web series.

Subject: Benjamin Franklin's discovery of electricity



Subject: Oney Judge, George & Martha Washington's favorite slave


Subject: William Henry Harrison, our ninth president



Drunk History premieres Tuesday, July 9, at 10pm on Comedy Central.
