When Charles and Charlie met the Smiths

Now this is genius: Charles Dickens giving us a potted history of his life in a note-perfect pastiche of the Smiths' 'This Charming Man', courtesy of Horrible Histories. And then there's This Charming Charlie, which finds characters from Charles Schulz's Peanuts strip quoting Smiths lyrics, sometimes to each other but often just to themselves. Both are all the more enjoyable for imagining how much Morrissey would hate them...
