King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table embark on a surreal, low-budget search for the Holy Grail, encountering many, very silly obstacles.
Michael Palin plays the most characters (12).
Before the black knight loses one leg, he is slightly taller than Arthur. After losing the leg, he is slightly shorter, due to being played by a one-legged stunt man rather than John Cleese.
On the Regions 2 and 4 DVD's (Europe and Australasia) release, the end credits are extended to three minutes (rather than 20 seconds) of a black screen with the intermission music.
Early home video release lack the Dentist on the Job (1961) false start scene that comes before the "actual" film. It is reinstated on later releases like the Special Collector's Edition DVD.
