Trivia

The Dennis Moore character, played in the Dennis Moore sketches by John Cleese never went on to have his own spin-off sitcom.


Quotes

Mr Smoke-Too-Much: I saw your add in the "Bolour" Supplement.
Bounder: The what?
Mr Smoke-Too-Much: The Bolour Suppliment.
Bounder: The Colour Supplement.
Mr Smoke-Too-Much: Yes, I'm sorry, I can't say the letter B.
Bounder: C?
Mr Smoke-Too-Much: Yes, that's right. It's all due to a trauma I suffered when I was a "sbool" boy. I was attacked by a bat.


Goofs

The Air Tube that operates Mr Tree's mouth can be seen in the profile shot, when light starts glinting off it.


Crazy Credits

In the "Royal Episode" 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 Saves the Queen" is played over end credits.


Alternate Versions

The A&E home video VHS & DVD versions, while restoring some footage, have eliminated some as well, including:

  • The word "masturbation" in the "All-England Summarize Proust Competition" sketch.
  • Graham Chapman's abbreviated rendition of "Tonight Tonight" from "West Side Story" in the "Funny Bus Conductor" sketch.
  • The ending "Dad's Pooves" film from episode 38.
  • Dialogue from "Biggles Dictates A Letter" sketch.
  • A&E explains that: "All of the Monty Python[videos] available at the A&E online store were produced directly from masters that we received." And that some "rights issues" were involved in some of the cuts.
