History of the World in Three Minutes Flat – Michael Mills Productions Ltd. – Michael Mills

This charming little short film reconstructs the history of the world as an ever rising building- generation after generation building on top of each other, with notable moments standing out (at one point during the Dark Ages section a man in a turban says “praise be to Allah! I’ve invented the Zero!” “What?” “Nothing, nothing.” and then rolling on instantly.) (Source: The Big Cartoon DataBase)
