Trivia

Arthur Ewing And His Musical Mice likely inspired Marvin Suggs, a Muppet character who plays a similar "musical instrument" comprised of several small, fluffy Muppets who shriek when hit with a mallet. Oddly enough, the original pilot for The Muppet Show (which does not feature Suggs) was called "Sex And Violence." See more »

Goofs

During the "Flying Sheep" sketch, two French experts on "ovine aviation" share one mustache between them, which is worn by whichever expert happens to be giving the lecture at the time. At one point, Michael Palin takes off the mustache and puts it back on John Cleese. In order to hide his laughter, he turns away from the camera immediately afterward. See more »

Quotes

Kargol: How many of us can honestly say that at one time or another, he hasn't felt sexually attracted to mice? I know I have.

Those poor mice!
22 August 2019 | by Stevieboy666See all my reviews

As the previous reviewer has said into episode 2 of series 1 we're now getting some familiar running themes, such as the scruffy old man at the beginning and end of each episode, but in different locations. Same joke really but being Python it never wears thin. Some classic sketches here - the musical mice (ouch!), the hilarious marriage guidance counsellor and the father/son poet/miner role reversal (genius!)
