One thing about the TV series is, that it is a little under-rehearsed, especially in the first series (from which the Parrot Sketch is taken).  They didn't get into their stride until the second series (which has some superior material:  Scott Of The Sahara, The Spanish Inquisition, etc.)

Terry Gilliam's sketches are some of the funniest parts of the series.

@Ghoolishmoose, if you want to try another sketch, I recommend the Argument Sketch, or the ever popular Lumberjack Song.

...or The Dirty Hungarian Phrasebook, The Ministry Of Silly Walks, Sir Philip Sidney And The Fight Against Tudor Pornography, and The Attila The Hun Show:

"There's a whole horde of them marauding Visigoths to see y'all."

There's too many to name.  Just don't download "The Cycling Tour", it's a whole episode, although one of my favourites.

I forgot about the Cycling Tour. That is also side splittingly funny.

Or the Whizzo Chocolate sketch.

I like the chrunchy frog flavour the best.

I have a couple of MP box sets from A & E.. The Ants episode is underrated but very funny. I wanted to tell you all, if it had not been mentioned before, that they're rereleasing Life of Brian for a limited run as a response to The Passion. Everyone who can, go see it!

I just watched some of the extras on my life of Brian dvd.  They included a documentary made about the pythons in 1979. It was great, but also tragic. Oh the hair!

I'll have to watch that one. I've already seen the follow the killer bunny feature.  <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/biggrin.gif">

Do they sell the meaning of life on dvd at all? I've seen it in a box set with the other two films, but I'm not buying both of them again just to get the other one. Stupid marketing scams.  <IMG SRC="http://peel.gotfuturama.com/ubb/mad.gif">

Is it just me, or did the brits have looser cesers back then?   roll eyes
I mean, I've seen several topless woman on the show.  also, they get bolder as the show goes on.  in the crunchy frog sketch, it starts out as "I don't care about your sales." to "I don't give a damb about your sales." to "f*** your sales!" and you actualy get to see the man vomit in a later one as oposed to the one where he just ran from the room.

P. S. someone asked why they don't get back together.  Well, for starters, isn't Grahme (spelled wrong) Chapman dead?   cry

The BBC did sometimes censor or try to censor Monty Python.  The most famous example is the sketch where a man says that one of his hobbies is masturbation.  The line was (badly) edited for the British broadcast, but aired intact in the USA.  And the version of the crunchy frog sketch in which the man vomits was done live and not made for TV, so they could do it however they liked.

The British Censors have always been rather strict, but who could ever try to mess with the wonder of the Monty Python team?

Kiffan: Graham Chapman is dead, he died in the late 80's of liver faliure... I think. But the Remainder of the Python Team have always denied any re-union.

But the Python team have kind of re-united now and again, not for sketches necessarily. The only example I can think of is the film The Wind In The Willows, which has Terry Jones, Michael Palin, John Cleese and Eric Idle in it.

That kind of re-union, yes. They have worked together on different projects, but have never performed any Monty Pyton sketches. I beleive there was a falling out between John Cleese and Terry Jones.

Oh, yes they have.  There's been at least one reunion, because I've seen one.  They said that they wanted to have all of the Pythons there, so they brought an urn that they claimed contained Graham Chapman's ashes.  Of course, they ended up spilling the ashes all over the stage.

That was in 1998, and it really was more of an interview and Python retrospective than a new comedy special.  However, after that, they considered doing either a new movie or a live stage tour.  The tour idea fell apart because Michael Palin and Terry Gilliam didn't want to do it.  I think Eric Idle was the driving force behind the idea of a movie, which would have been a sequel to The Holy Grail.  He talked to John Cleese about it and claimed Cleese was interested, but when the others got together to talk about it, Cleese said he didn't want to do it, so either he changed his mind or Idle exaggerated his level of interest.  Cleese said that he'd told Idle it was an interesting idea but never said he wanted to be involved.  The 30th anniversary special led to more disagreements between Cleese and Idle.  Idle ended up not doing much for the show because he thought the script wasn't in the Python style and that Cleese had given himself the best parts, leaving nothing for everyone else.  So maybe the falling-out Coilette heard about was between Cleese and Idle, not Terry Jones.

Ah, yes, I heard about that.    hmpf
It's so sad, I would love to see another Monty Python movie. My friends laugh at me because I can quote huge passages of Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and it would be nice to have another movie to quote...

figures I'd side with Eric Idle... I've always liked him the best.    big grin

You do know that there are other Monty Python movies besides Monty Python and the Holy Grail, right?  Try watching Life of Brian or The Meaning of Life.

Also, if you liked Monty Python and the Holy Grail, you'd probably like Jabberwocky.  It's not actually a Monty Python film, but Terry Gilliam directed it, and it stars Michael Palin.  Terry Jones is also in it.

true, it doesn't have to be a monty python film to see some of the ponty python actors.  good examples: "time bandits" and "the advenures of baron munchusan"
