Everyone has their favourite Python sketches, which they can often quote almost verbatim, whether it is 'the Parrot Sketch', 'the Cheese Shop' or 'Blackmail' - amongst many. Likewise the Python films, the mere mention of which might solicit quotes like Tis but a flesh wound or He's not the Messiah, he's a very naughty boy. But what lies beyond these well-remembered favourites? How many remember the 'Fresh Fruit Self Defence' sketch, of 'the Fish-Slapping dance'? Or even such almost-forgotten curios as 'Blancmanges Playing Tennis', 'The Olympic Hide And Seek Final' and 'The Batley Townswomen's Guild Re-enacting Pearl Harbour'. This book will shine a light on all of these often hilarious but occasionally misfiring curios. As well as the films and all 45 TV episodes, the record albums will also be examined for their content and how it differed from the TV show.
