A collection of re-filmed sketches from the first and second series of the cult TV comedy show "Monty Python's Flying Circus". Includes such classics as "Nudge, Nudge", "Hell's Grannies", "Killer Cars", "Dead Parrot", "Lumberjack Song", "Blackmail" and "Upper Class Twit of the Year". Written by
Mr and Mrs and Mrs Zambesi <email@example.com>
An obstacle course in the "Upper Class Twit of the Year" scene has the competitors jumping over matchboxes. Vivian Smith-Smythe-Smith is the only one who "refuses" (doesn't jump). In the series, Nigel Incubator-Jones was the one to refuse. See more »
In the animation following the "People falling out of tall buildings" sketch, when the caterpillar walks into his house and climbs into the bed the door to the bedroom is still open. Once the caterpillar falls asleep and the camera fades out, when the camera fades back into him, the door is now closed. See more »
In this picture, there are forty-seven people. None of them can be seen. In this film, we hope to show you how not to be seen. This is Mr E.R. Bradshaw of Napier Court, Black Lion Road, London, SE14. He cannot be seen. Now I'm going to ask him to stand up. Mr Bradshaw, will you stand up, please?
[Mr Bradshaw stands up and is shot]
This demonstrates the value of not being seen.

After the opening theme song, a "THE END" screen comes up, and stage manager Terry Jones apologises for the brevity of the film. See more »
Containing various skits from the first two years of their famous wacky show, "And Now for Something Completely Different" was Monty Python's Flying Circus' first movie. Everyone knows the Dead Parrot, the Lumberjack Song, and such things. They must have just cracked up writing this stuff.
If absolutely nothing else, this movie (or their show) reminds us what humor should entail. If you've never seen any of Monty Python's work, this should explain it all to you, although you ought to be prepared to die laughing.
So remember, always use Crelm toothpaste!
