Thanks. You can see the entire video on YouTube, the miracle of flight.

I saw this when I was 12 or 13 on Marty Feldman's Comedy Machine. My kids learned that if I yelled the word "FLY!" they needed to scoot or get a foot it the bottom. Not enough to get them airborne, but the temptation was there many times

I used to watch Flying Circus at that same age on the local PBS station. It was on at like 11pm every friday and I would sneak into the den when my parents were asleep and watch it. Lol

Python hadn't made it to this side of the pond yet, but Marty Feldman snagged a contract with ABC to do a summer replacement show. Back then, it was raw numbers, not demographics, that drove advertisers dollars. It wasn't picked up for regular season.

A few years later, ABC tried with a late night special of clips from Python, but the way they did it was a poor imitation of the show. I liked the bits that I had seen, and when I got a chance to see the real show a year later, I fell in love with it. 1976.

i got hooked on it in the mid 80's. You could sometimes catch one of the movies on one of the canadian tv stations I could get cuz I grew up on the NY /Ontario border.

My kids grew up with it. My wife hated it and thought it was stupid, so naturally, the kids loved it. We gave our youngest girl our vhs taped. Went over to visit a few weeks later to watch her girls and the oldest one asked if we could watch the Python tapes. That kid is too much like me.
