View Full Version : Favorite Monty Python Skit

08-09-2006, 08:43 PM
A friend at work today asked me what my favorite Monty Python skit is. After some thought I said "Ethel the Frog" about Doug and Dinesdale Pirahanna. His is "The Upper Class Twit of the Year Race". What about the forum?

"Ministry of Silly Walks"? Don't know the name of the skit, but the one where John Cleese has double vision, and (Eric Idle?) applies for a mountain expedition. "The Lumberjack Song".

I like the one about the delivery of a new gas cooker, and the Crunchy Frog skit. The animation called Charwoman is pretty good too.

Dead Parrot, Camouflage, and Lumberjack, for me.
"The Larch."

Gee, by now I'd have expected "Spanish Inquisition."

Oh, wait, I forgot: NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

I'm not as familiar with the Flying Circus episodes, but I do seem to remember the dead parrot was pretty funny. Otherwise, the French taunters from Holy Grail are a riot.

"Your mother was a hamster, and your father smelled of elderberries!"

"He's pining for the fiords!" I rather like the dead parrot skit too.

Then there's the guy who "couldn't possibly eat another bite" even if it's a wafer thin mint... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Great stuff guys. Love all those ones mentioned. Was pretty sure dead parrot, silly walks,and Spanish inquisition would be at the top of most people's lists. Love the movies too, but didn't want to get sidetracked with them on this thread.
I'd like to see Grahm Chapman as Mr. Neutron again and Teddy Salad the beagle FBI man in disguise.

Many of those already listed plus the olympic race for incontinent athletes.

From Life of Brian the stoning scene, the latin graffitti scene, the stuttering scene "I have a friend called Biggus..." and "what have the Romans done for us" .

The 4 Yorkshiremen ("we lived in cardboard box in middle of road; you were lucky").

Also the sketch where Cleese is the Pope questioning Michael Angelo (Idle) why there were 3 Christs in his original version of the Last Supper painting; answer "the fat one balances the two thin ones". Because of that and the 28 disciples he renamed it the Penultimate Supper, as there had to of been one before the last one.

International hide and seek championships.

It's.....The Bishop! Don't say the kid's name, vic! We was too late. The Reverend Neuk saw the light.

I also like the Pirahna Brothers. ...he was very reasonable about it. I mean one Sunday when my parents were coming round for tea, I asked him if he'd mind very much not nailing my head to the floor that week, and he agreed and just screwed my pelvis to a cake stand.

Course, you gotta remember that while Dinsdale was a mean bugger who'd as soon nail your head to the floor as look at you, his brother Doug was an altogether bigger one. Because Doug knew how to use irony.

Classics....all of them.

How about the one where the aliens turned everyone into Scotsmen?

Seems like the gas cooker skit segued into the Ministry of Silly Walks, but I could be wrong.

There's also the episode titled Full Frontal Nudity...

Turned everyone into Scotsmen in order to win Wimbledon, no less! (because nobody from Scotland had won much in tennis, much less Wimbledon).

That is the Blomonge (sp?) skit.
There were so many good ones that its hard to pick one!
And now for something completely different... Mount Everest the mount ............

PS. How not to be seen was hilarious! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

08-13-2006, 01:47 AM
Has anyone mentioned International Hide and Seek Championship?

08-13-2006, 06:35 AM
For me it's the fish slapping dance. All are outrageously funny though.

08-13-2006, 07:17 AM
Have you seen the Faulty Towers series yet?
