    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • On A&E's DVD release, Episode 39 is called "Grandstand" on its main episode menu.

      • David Niven's fridge, voiced by Michael Palin, announces five nominees for Best Foreign Film Director: "Monsieur Richard Attenborough, Ricardo de Attenbergie, Rik Artenborough, Ri Char Dat En Bollo, and Pier Paolo Pasolini." So how did Pasolini finish sixth?

    • QUOTES (1)

      • (Begin with Thames Television opening identification. Music under is Salute To Thames by Johnny Hawkesworth. Cut to David Hamilton in their presentation studios.)
        David Hamilton: Good evening. We've got an action-packed evening for you tonight on Thames, but right now, here's a rotten old BBC programme.

    • NOTES (2)

      • This show was supposed to include the "E. Henry Thripshaw's Disease" sketch, but the BBC transplanted it to the last episode recorded (a show now titled, ironically, E. Henry Thripshaw's Disease) after the BBC editors threw out that episode's "Cocktails" and "Wine-Tasting" skits.

      • This was John Cleese's final episode on the Flying Circus (other than his appearance in the 2nd German show). He left feeling the show was no longer creative and was becoming repetitive.
