From the VHS box cover:

You look like the type we’re looking for. Warm and breathing — a perfect customer for this hilarious 20th anniversary look back at the BEST bits, pieces and gags of Monty Python foolery.

Parrot Sketch Not Included features snippets of Pythonmania never before available in the USA. And it’s packed with unforgettable moments from longtime faves like the Fish-Slapping Dance, the Ministry of Silly Walks, the Argument Clinic, World Forum and the comfy chair torment of the Spanish Inquisition.

In nature, a snake cannot have legs. In show biz, an act that’s enduringly popular has legs. Monty Python’s got ’em. However, the lads do remind you that it’s impolite to stare.

They’re not all dead yet.

In a desperate attempt to shut them up, A&E presents this, the ultimate Python fanatic’s collection, chock full of interviews, new material, tours, new material, de rigeur “lost” episodes and bits, new material, shots of the old geezers sitting on their laurels, and, of course, new material.

The Man On The Moon

The year is 2087 and the future isn’t what it used to be now that mobsters (including Joe Pantoliano) are putting the squeeze on Club Pluto, the nightclub Nash runs.
