Catapult (Toy) Animals Into The Air With The 40th Anniversary Special Edition Of ‘Monty Python And The Holy Grail’

Monty Python has been known for its irreverent and insane humor for nearly a half-century now. And it has been 40 years since the comedy troupe’s first feature film — “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” — was released; an amazing film that made it OK for people to embrace their love of the weird ever since (thank goodness). And with such a landmark anniversary, the Pythons have gone incredibly silly, indeed with the special edition release of the film, which includes a tiny catapult to launch small, rubber toy animals into the air with.


The DVD/Blu-Ray, set for release on Oct. 27, set also includes:

  • Letters from co-directors Terry Jones and Terry Gilliam
  • New Q&A with the Pythons recorded at the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival, hosted by John Oliver
  • Commentaries by Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones, John Cleese, Eric Idle, and Michael Palin
  • Outtakes and extended scenes with introduction by Terry Jones
  • Lost animations with introduction by Terry Gilliam
  • How to Use Your Coconuts (An Educational Film)

To celebrate, here is my favorite scene from the film.
