  • And it's a swing to the silly party.

    Yes, this is the episode with the Python's hilarious parody of the election night programmes, featuring the silly party and the serious party. I absolutely love this sketch, it's complete satire, but at the same time in the style of the Python's, which makes it something special. Other great sketches on this show include a school prizes sketch where imposters appear and steal the awards before it turns into a battlefield. We also see some people getting thrown into a lake and several other memorable skits. But you'll remember this episode for the election parody the most. Brilliant stuff.
