Monty Python's Flying Circus
Episode 29: The Money Programme

By: Monty Python


You are hereby charged that you did willfully take part in a strange sketch. That is, a skit, spoof or humorous vignette of an unconventional nature with intent to cause grievous mental confusion to the Great British Public. Stavro Arrgolus 
Recorded December 4, 1971, first aired November 2, 1972.
This show gave us "The Money Song", the Church Police and, of course, "Argument Clinic", one of the signature Python sketches.

  • In the early '70s, it was still possible to get away with ethnic humor. This episode features a running gag in which the police are pursuing a rogue director (played by Terry Jones) who impersonates more successful directors - 'ethnically diverse' ones. The character is Japanese, but tries to pass as Michelangelo Antonioni and later in the episode actually appears in blackface- something that would get you shot repeatedly these days. Africa features prominently in this episode, so he wasn't the only one. This is an instance in which they get a pass because they're Python. (Stavro Arrgolus)
