Did You Know?

Ten of the 13 episodes were accidentally erased. By 2003, six complete episodes existed. Film extracts from six of the seven missing episodes were made into compilation episodes that were sold to Swedish TV. In 2014, two episodes were found among the collection of executive producer David Frost. They were on 16mm film and had been filmed directly from a television screen. Complete audio recordings exist for all episodes.See more »

Proto-Python, 5 August 2005
Author: craigjclark from Haddonfield, NJ

Believed lost for decades, this series is finally available on DVD (well, five episodes of it, at least), and it is definitely one of the great comedy finds. Written by and starring Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Tim Brooke-Taylor and Marty Feldman, it is one of the clearest forerunners of "Monty Python's Flying Circus" (along with "Do Not Adjust Your Set," which has also been given an archival release). Not only that, it shows four bright, young comedians clearly having fun with the medium and producing some high-quality comedy.

The series even features Eric Idle in various bit parts, so some of the cross-pollination that lead to the creation of Python was already taking place. Pity the other eight episodes are still lost.
