The movie's humor reminded producer Patricia Casey of the Keystone Kops: no holds barred, outrageous, preposterous, daredevil, zany, violent fun. Casey said: "It's the kind of thing the English do very well. They're so free, they create a fantastic situation, inject a few serious home truths about sex or pompous attitudes, then tear it down." Producer Patricia Casey, aka Pat Casey, was an American citizen footloose in London and had the time of her life making this movie: "We've nothing to compare with it in the States. It's so brilliantly 'visual' that anybody who enjoys laughing, anywhere in the world, will appreciate it". See more »
One of the segments of the film is the animated "Conrad Poohs and his Dancing Teeth." But in the scene that follows, Eric Idle's emcee-type character refers to it as "Conrad Poohs and his EXPLODING Teeth." 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.

Inspired Lunacy Of the Highest (or is it Lowest) Order!
AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. *** John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin. Raucous collection of skits and absurd humor by the master clowns of mocking mirth, Monty Python, from their iconoclastic television series that includes many hysterically funny moments especially The Twit of the Year bit. Inspired lunacy.
