Terry Gilliam - The Christmas Card.
6 years ago
That is without question the best Christmas card I have ever seen. My favorite part in particular was the part where they shot the deer. It was so relevant to me this holiday season because my sister sent me a photo this morning that showed my eight year old niece smiling as proud and pretty as she ever has while she was propping up the head of a doe she had just shot.
These were always my favorite parts of the Monty Python show!
And shouldn't there have been some sort of giant foot stepping on the whole thing at some point?

I'm just glad I am not the only living human who remembers (fondly) "Marty Feldman's Comedy Machine" and Terry Gilliam's contributions to it. While not as good as Monty Python in any way, it was well-suited to prepare young Americans for what they would soon be exposed to on their local PBS affiliate. Also, Spike Milligan (formerly of The Goons) and Tim Brooke-Taylor (futurely of The Goodies). 'Nuff said.

These Monty Python Behind The Scenes Photos Are Delightful
Aw, bless. For each of those photos I can hear the lines that would have accompanied them, in my head.
