Potter Puppet Pals & More


JK Rowling's beloved children's book series Harry Potter is popular. Very popular. So it's no surprise that there's lots of Harry Potter-related comedy videos online. A lot of them aren't very well done. But have great Harry Potter jokes. Here are the 13 funniest Harry Potter comedy videos online.

1. Potter Puppet Pals in "The Mysterious Ticking Noise"

With over 66 million views, Neil Cicierega's Harry Potter hand puppet comedy video "Potter Puppet Pals in 'The Mysterious Ticking Noise'" is easily the most popular Harry Potter-related video online. And with a slew of great Harry Potter jokes, it's also very likely the funniest. Who knew hand puppets could be this hilarious?

2. The Half Blood Prince of Bel-Air is Harry Potter in the Hood

For some inexplicable reason, Harry Potter is the perfect subject for a comedy rap song; there are loads of them online, some of the funny, a few great. oMovies' "The Half Blood Prince of Bel-Air is Harry Potter in the Hood" is one of the great ones, packed with awesome Harry Potter jokes. Harry's G-Unit-esque, all-black entourage is a really nice touch.

3. Harry Potter with ADHD

Harry Potter IS a teenage boy. So the fact that in the books and movies he's completely focused on his school work and magic spells works great for the stories but isn't very realistic. Enter take180's Electric Spoofaloo sketch "Harry Potter with ADHD." And some truly exquisite special effects really aid the already-hilarious Harry Potter jokes.

4. A Very Potter Musical

Here's something REALLY special -- a fan-created full-length musical starring all your favorite characters from Harry Potter. The songs, the acting, the Harry Potter jokes and the story is all great in Matt Lang, Nick Lang and Brian Holden's "A Very Potter Musical."

5. Michael Bay Presents Harry Potter

The Harry Potter films are dripping with great stories, wonderful acting and loads and loads of care. The films of director Michael Bay are known less for that sort of stuff and more for explosions, guns, bad acting and lots and lots of slow motion. So Think Hero TV's pitch-perfect parody, "Michael Bay Presents Harry Potter," in which Hagrid wields a tommy-gun and everything is in suuuper sloooow moooootion. Hilarious!

6. Harry Potter, Bad Roommate: Episode #1

It's never fair when your roommate uses the upper hand he's gained from being a top-level magician to get out of doing household chores, which is exactly what happens in the hilarious Shake State sketch "Harry Potter, Bad Roommate: Episode #1" and is also what happened to me Sophomore year of college.

7. This Isn't Hogwarts! A Harry Potter Song

What if the adolescent complaints in Green Day's early songs were from the perspective of the characters from Harry Potter? Then you'd have something pretty similar to Hank Green's Harry Potter jokes-filled, rather wonderful pop-punk song "This Isn't Hogwarts!" And hey, did you know there's a whole sub-genre of rock music dedicated to Harry Potter stuff? It's called wrock, which stands for wizard rock. And it's great!

8. Water Glasses/Harry Potter Song

The composer John Williams' wonderful scores for the Harry Potter films get the musical water glasses treatment in this wonderful (and wonderfully funny) video.

9. Harry Potter and the Outcasts of Hogwarts

In the Harry Potter books and films, you get to see Harry, you get to see Ron Wesley, you get to see Hermione and you even get to see Draco Malfoy. But what about the outcasts at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizadry? They're not at all present in the films, but in Pistol Shrimps' wonderful sketch, you don't have to wonder what the outcasts are up to any longer; they're busy taunting Harry and his pals.

10. The Harry Potter Rap
