Overview
England was such a proper place — until the day the Python arrived. Monty Python, that is, a Flying Circus that slithered up the funnybone of an entire nation and gave it fits of laughter.

Here's Monty Python's first feature film — a hilarious collection of their very best twits, skits and bits from their popular TV series. There's "Hell's Grannies" and "The Cannibal Baby Strollers," "The Dead Parrot" routine (he's just resting!) and valuable tips on how to defend yourself against an attacker armed with a piece of fruit. And who will ever forget "The Lumberjack Song" ("I cut down trees, I wear high heels, suspenders and a bra…")?

And, of course, plenty of zany Monty Python animation. Absolutely the silliest stuff since the day Ernest Scribbler wrote the world's funniest joke and died (croak!) laughing.
