This series was one of the first to deviate from the norms of television credits. Among the odd credits gags that were used were: an episode where the credits scrolled sideways; credits that used gag names for the cast & crew; ending credits rolled at the beginning of the episode (or the opening titles delayed until nearly the end); and credits that roll a few minutes early, followed by spoof versions of BBC broadcast announcements (even incorporating the BBC "rolling Earth" logo in use at the time).

You are Alexander Yalt?
[in a Derek Nimmo voice]
Oh I am.
Skip the impersonations.
Mr Yalt you are charged that on the second day of January 1970 you wilfully, deliberately and with malice aforethought published an English-Hungarian Phrasebook with intent to cause a breach of the peace. How do you plead?
You live at 46 Horton Terrace?
I do live at 46 Horton Terrace.
You are the president of a publishing company?
I am the president of a publishing company.

One episode omits the entire opening sequence of "Monty Python's Flying Circus" in favour of a simple title caption - "The Cycling Tour". See more »
Any episode of Monty Python will reduce one to fits of laughing that will produce bouts of tears that will render the viewer on the ground. Great physical comedy on all parts, but especially John Cleese in the Ministry of Silly Walks sketch, which is his least favorite sketch. Great writing that walks that fine line between genius and silly, and meshes the two. These guys also knew when and how to start end a sketch. Still funny thirty years later, wish the same could be said about Saturday Night Live. Too bad there wasn't some knight who could hit Lorne Michaels with a chicken.
