In the Tudor court of Elizabeth I, Lord Edmund Blackadder strives to win Her Majesty's favour while attempting to avoid a grisly fate should he offend her.
This is the only feature to actually use a snake to symbolize Blackadder: the snake in the title sequence, the "B" of "Blackadder", and an embroidered snake on the upper sleeve of his costume.
In the opening credits, a snake (a Mexican black kingsnake) slithers across a marble table (in a homage/parody to I, Claudius (1976), a historical/political drama series which starred Patsy Byrne). However, the snake doesn't go the way it should, and at the end is removed and replaced with an object (the object varies depending on the episode).
