According to John Cleese, when he and the fellow Pythons were pitching the show to the BBC, they went into a meeting having not prepared anything. When asked what the show would be about and feature, they reportedly stated that the show would be a "comedy, with some skits in it". See more »
In the "Royal Episode" John Cleese doesn't open with "And now for something completely different". Instead he says Queen Elizabeth II will be watching and the show begins with entirely different opening sequence and song. At the end the audience and characters stand as "God Saves the Queen" is played over end credits. See more »
"Monty Python's Flying Circus" is a blast. Plain and simple. Seeing an episode will cause the following symptoms: Laughter, tears, jaw aches, voice-loss(all of above caused by laughter). Most will laugh, some will just sit there at its silliness. Well whoever you are, give it a try. You either love it or hate it. Me? I love it.
