Here are the complete scripts for every one of the 45 episodes of Monty Python’s Flying Circus and some of the most entertaining writing to have gone into television anywhere; every silly set-up, every clever conceit, every snide insult and saucy aside from these now classic skits, including The Ministry of Silly Walks, the Dead Parrot, Banter in a Cheese Shop, Spam, the Funniest Joke in the World, the Spanish Inquisition, Argument Clinic, the Fish-Slapping Dance and The Lumberjack Song.  This celebration of Flying Circus covers the plethora of cultural, historical, and topical references touched upon by this landmark series and virtually every allusion and reference that appeared in an episode is identified and explained.

Sidebars and commentary include profiles of the principles and interviews with cast and crew. Each episode is highlighted with fascinating facts about technical concerns and shooting locations; insider stories from the set including arguments, accidents, practical jokes, goofs, gaffes and much more, including hundreds of photo-stills from the shows and Terry Gilliam’s artwork.
