Sir Michael Palin is the youngest Python, being born on May 5, 1943, and John Cleese is the eldest Python, being born on October 27, 1939. Palin was twenty-six when this show first recorded and aired, and Cleese was twenty-nine.
The Air Tube that operates Mr. Tree's mouth can be seen in the profile shot, when light starts glinting off it.
In Monty Python's Flying Circus: Royal Episode 13 (1970) John Cleese doesn't open with "And now for something completely different". Instead he says Queen Elizabeth II will be watching and the show begins with entirely different opening sequence and song. At the end the audience and characters stand as "God Save the Queen" is played over end credits.
The VHS and DVD releases by A&E contain the full-length versions of the shows. Several episodes run over 30 minutes, and were previously edited by PBS to fit into a 30 minute time slot.
