Monty Python vs. AM America

Monty Python group shot

From 1975, excerpts from an episode of AM America, where Team Python (without Cleese) were promoting Holy Grail. It’s a bit jumpy as we only get ten minutes of the program, but I’m sure this brings across the gist of how demented this show really was. I can only imagine the poor people watching this live on its initial airing.

A couple of questions: is it just me, or does the theme music seem a lot like a mashup of every 70s TV drama show?

Also, is it just me, or does Eric Idle, in that hat and overalls, look like some demented children’s show host?
