Description: Monty Python's And Now For Something Completely Different was first released in the US in 1973, but didn't really take off as a midnight-movie fixture until after the Monty Python's Flying Circus TV series began making the PBS rounds. Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Michael Palin and Terry Gilliam are the Pythonites in attendance, together with semiregulars Carol Cleveland and Connie Booth. The sketches presented include such classics as The Lumberjack Song, Hell's Grannies, The Upperclass Twit of the Year Race, and, of course, The Dead Parrot. Additionally, Terry Gilliam's animated-cartoon interpolations act as buffers between sketches.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
