Terry Gilliam's animation contributions for this series were the opening and closing credits. The opening was a production line making identical looking mannequins/men, one eventually gets Marty's head, and is ejected into a rubbish bin. (This sequence appears in Gilliam's "Animations of Mortality" book.). The closing credits were various people saying "Good Bye!" and having horrible things happen to them. (i.e. A train conductor pulls a level and gets run over by a train, Mickey Mouse-type thingy gets smashed in a rat trap, etc... ) See more »
I remember watching this show when I was in high school and thinking it was some of the funniest stuff I ever saw. This was about 3 years before Monty Python ever made it to this side of the Atlantic. When they arrived I assumed they were copycats of Marty Feldman! It is a shame that these shows are sitting idle and not being released.
