    Another good episode, although for me there was nothing in paticulair that stood out as a classic sketch. The sheep stuf was funny enough, and I loved the news for various animals here as well. The final sketch involving a blow on the head for Mrs Scum was a nice way to end the show. besides that though there's nothing to really go out of your way to see. Overall you can watch this and enjoy it, but it's not an episode you'll be going back to watch again unless your a diehard fan.moreless

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Cricket Announcer: The Green Chesterfield is coming in at number three to take guard now!

    • Urban Idiot: Father was Home Secretary, and Mother won the Derby.

    • Interviewer: What kind of money is there in idiotting?
      M. Brando: Well, nowadays, the really blithering idiot can make anything up to 10,000 pounds a year if he's the head of some big industrial combine. But, of course, the more old-fashioned idiot still refuses to take money. He takes bits of string, wood, dead budgerigars, sparrows, anything.

    • Ratcatcher: I'm Leslie Ames, the chairman of the test selection committee and I'm very pleased to be able to tell you that your flat has been chosen as the venue for the third test against the West Indies.
      Mrs. Concrete: Really?
      Ratcatcher: No, it was just a little joke. Actually, I'm the council ratcatcher.

  • NOTES (2)

    • "The Attilla The Hun Show" title sequence is a direct parody of the opening title of "The Debbie Reynolds Show", a short-lived situation comedy she appeared in for NBC during the 1969-'70 season.

    • John Cleese's quiz show emcee asks Mrs Scum the question "Which great opponent of Cartesian dualism resists the reduction of psychological phenomena to a physical state?" On Monty Python's Live At Drury Lane album (1974), the same question is asked with the additional material "...and insists there is no point of contact between the extended and the unextended?"
