  • Trivia

    • At the end of the It's The Arts sketch, Johann
      Gambleputty- etc.'s name is repeated with a series of intercut Gilliam animations. Where the "bahnwagen-guttenabend-" part is, a portion of a painting by Agnolo Bronzino appears. This is a close up and recolor of a segment from "Venus, Cupid, Folly, And Time," animated by Gilliam to have Cupid, colored green, running his finger against Venus's bare breast. In the actual painting itself, Cupid's fully visible right foot, seen above a bird in the lower left, is the source of the famous Python foot that stomps at the end of the opening titles of the series.
