I was RAISED on Python! I remember being 5 years old and haveing to close my eyes when the naked ladies came on the screen! LOL!
I have been introducing Python to friends for years and have almost started a CULT the responce has been so WONDERFUL!
You guys are THE Gods of Comedy! Because of you I now have Little Britian and other spectacular comedy that couldn't have been if you hadn't pushed the boundries of acceptable humor!
Adult Swim is a DIRECT result of you and yours!
I LOVE YOU!
3 David McWhinnie from Fife, Scotland: One of my favourite sketches was when John Cleese & Michael Palin were battling together after a TV chat programme. OH NO 6' 2" then climbs on top of other..oh 8'4" etc until three people on top of each others shoulders were fighting... a CLASSIC sketch..I burst out laughing just thinking of the absurdity of it.
2 Philippa from Shanghai: What to do if a person is attacking you with a raspberry! "Dinsdale..." and the joke warfare thing. Haha! These guys are so random, I love this show.
1 jacqui c-w from bournemouth: A programme way ahead of its time. I loved do not adjust your set as a child and python was a natural progression. They were never better than dressed as women(espessialy Jones) My favourite sketch is the fish slapping dance, dead parrot spam,oh! to many to mention. I adored the hells grannies, the gummbies and upper class twit of the year. I can watch every episode over and over and still guffaw. As fresh today as it was in 1969!
