Trivia

In the "kill the witch" scene, Cleese would vary his comic timing for each take. The final take used starts at 18mins 8secs. Cleese's pause is so long that it makes Eric Idle start to 'corpse' (break character). To fight this, Idle starts biting his scythe.

Crazy Credits

In the Special Edition DVD, when you play the film, at first a film called "Dentist On the Job" starts playing, and it goes up until the end of its opening credits, then you hear someone saying that they put in the wrong film. The film stops, a quick reel change slide is put up, then the real movie starts.


Alternate Versions

On all of the post-"21st Anniversary Edition" all of the film has been cleaned up considerably from the original to give a much clearer picture, also some "waste-of-time"s have been removed completely; Most noticable of this is: Before King Arthur looks up to speak to the French soldiers he looks to the left and says, (Very quietly, possibly muted in the fnal dub), what's the next line? and a person off camera tells him the line, as they are telling him you can see him moving his lips to help him prompt himself. This only happens for about 2 seconds, but happens every time that King Arthur looks up to reply or speak to the French soldiers at the Castle.
