Monty Python's Flying Circus

Trivia: The band "Toad the Wet Sprocket" took their name from a sketch on this show.

Trivia: The head of comedy at the BBC said that the title had to include the word "Circus", because the people at the BBC had referred to the six cast members wandering around the BBC offices as a circus, so added "Flying" to make it sound less like a real circus and more like something out of the first world war. And in front of that, added "Monty Python" because it sounded like a really bad theatrical agent, and also the large, constricting snake was also appropriate imagery.
