Episode Info

The centerpiece of this November 30, 1972, episode of Monty Python's Flying Circus is a grisly slow-motion sequence from Sam Peckinpah's production of the musical comedy Salad Days, replete with tennis-racket impalements and blood-soaked pianos. Also on the docket is "The Adventures of Biggles," in which the aviator hero tries to dictate a letter to King Haakon of Norway and Princess Margaret during a WWI dogfight (or, in this case, a sheep fight). Bert Tagg leads a mountain-climbing expedition along the north face of the Uxbridge Road. The resident of 24 Parker Street insists that her house is not a lifeboat. A Good Fairy from BBC program control turns into a frog. And, in the episode's other "money scene," Mr. Mousebender tries to make a purchase at Mr. Wensleydale's cheese shop. Nicki Howorth was featured in the unusually large cast.
