David Jason described his time on the show as "we were out, being paid to make films and behave like idiots, and wherever we went, the tab was picked up. I couldn't have been more blissfully happy, really. There was a wonderful freedom to it all. I was doing something I loved but under no pressure. I was an unknown actor, so there were no expectations. No one was expecting me to deliver. That came later. I was free to bury myself in work and enjoy it. I learned from this why so many people find solace in painting and drawing." See more »

There are very few comedy troupes that have had as long lasting success as Monty Python. But all great shows come from humble beginnings and this is one of them.
DNAYS was originally a children's program but it starred future Python members of Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin and Terry Gilliam as both performers and writers. And just like "At Last the 1948 Show" you can see a lot of the bits and bobs that would eventually make their way into Python including Terry Gilliam's animations. Joining them was the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band who would perform songs of a somewhat comic nature.
Like the 1948 Show there aren't a lot of these episodes that have survived to this day but a DVD is out there showing what is available.
