Monty Python's Flying Circus

Monty Python's Flying Circus (1969)

7 corrected entries in season 1

Full Frontal Nudity - S1-E9

Corrected entry: In the 'buying a bed' sketch, Mr Verity says that the couple "said mattress twice". Because of his affliction he should have said "20 times".

jle

Correction: No, he only has to multiply the numbers he says by ten. Twice is not a number.

How to Recognise Different Types of Trees From Quite a Long Way Away - S1-E3

Corrected entry: After Bicycle Repair Man gets on the bus, it drives off. In the next shot, it drives round a corner past some houses and parked cars.To the left of the bus, a little boy can be seen on the street (just walking past a car), and behind the bus, a man can be seen walking in the background. Neither of these people are wearing Superman outfits, like all the other characters in the episode are.

Correction: Later in the sketch it is revealed that "stockbrokers, accountants and church wardens" are all regular sights in J W Superman's world. Obviously there are some non-Superman people about, and you saw two of them. Not a mistake.

Sex and Violence - S1-E1

Corrected entry: In the Killer Joke sketch Eric Idle states that the English version of the joke was first told to the enemy on July 8th, 1944. Later on, as the German broadcast their 'V-Joke', the caption reads "1942 - Somewhere in Britain". Time travel, or a script mistake?

Correction: Neither. It's part of the joke. Already posted and corrected.

Sex and Violence - S1-E1

Corrected entry: In the opening scene, when Graham Chapman sits on a pig, the shadow of the microphone is visible on the wall behind him.

jle

Correction: The scene is set in a television studio and he is speaking directly to camera. A boom shadow is not a film mistake under these circumstances.

Sex and Violence - S1-E1

Corrected entry: When commentating on the artists' bicycle race, John Cleese says some more cyclists are approaching and rattles off a very long list of names ... but then only 3 cyclists pass.

jle

Correction: This is an example of pythonesque humour (pythonesque IS a word, look it up in the dictionary). Don't you think it a bit funny that he rattle off lots of names and have three riders go by? Maybe it's just me.

Wither Canada? - S1-E2

Corrected entry: In the 'Marriage Counsellor' sketch, the word on door to the office is spelt incorrectly ('councellor').

jle

Correction: This is the British way of spelling it. The spelling is correct.

Wither Canada? - S1-E2

Corrected entry: At the beginning of the 'Marriage Counsellor' sketch, Eric Idle shows the cards 'Marriage' and 'Counsellor' and they fall off of the front of the table. Michael Palin and his wife walk in and the cards have vanished from the floor.

jle

Correction: Actually, they fall onto the table itself. They are still there during the rest of the sketch.

Quotes

Kenny Lust: Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the refreshment room here at Bletchley. My name is Kenny Lust and I'm your compère for tonight. You know, once in a while it is my pleasure, and my privilege, to welcome here at the refreshment room, some of the truly great international artists of our time. And tonight we have one such artist. Ladies and gentlemen, someone whom I've always personally admired, perhaps more deeply, more strongly, more abjectly than ever before. A man... Well, more than a man, a god, a great god, whose personality is so totally and utterly wonderful my feeble words of welcome sound wretchedly and pathetically inadequate. Someone whose boots I would gladly lick clean until holes wore through my tongue, a man who is so totally and utterly wonderful, that I would rather be sealed in a pit of my own filth than dare tread on the same stage with him! Ladies and gentlemen... The incomparably superior human being, Harry Fink!
Man: [from offstage.] He can't come!
Kenny Lust: Never mind, he's not all he's cracked up to be.

Mistakes

In the Marriage Counselor sketch, Deidre Pewty is wearing such a tiny miniskirt that when she sits we see she is wearing white knickers. When she undresses behind the screen she throws a pair of black knickers out.
