Monty Python's Flying Circus (TV Series 1969–1974) Poster

Alternate Versions

The VHS and DVD releases by A&E contain the full-length versions of the shows. Several episodes run over 30 minutes, and were subsequently edited by PBS to fit into a 30 minute time slot.
The A&E home video VHS & DVD versions, while restoring some footage, have eliminated some as well, including:
  • The word "masturbation" in the "All-England Summarize Proust Competition" sketch.


  • Graham Chapman's abbreviated rendition of "Tonight Tonight" from "West Side Story" in the "Funny Bus Conductor" sketch.


  • The ending "Dad's Pooves" film from episode 38.


  • Dialogue from "Biggles Dictates A Letter" sketch.


  • A&E explains that: "All of the Monty Python[videos] available at the A&E online store were produced directly from masters that we received." And that some "rights issues" were involved in some of the cuts.
