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.

For more than 30 years, devout fans of Monty Python have tortured the rest of us with endless repetition of the “Dead Parrot Sketch,” “The Spanish Inquisition,” “Spam,” “The Lumberjack Song,” “Nudge Nudge” and more.
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.

From the box:

The Future Is History

Cole (Willis) arrives at a mental hospital, claiming to be a time traveler from the year 2035. His mission: to save humanity from a killer virus that will devastate the future world population. A beautiful psychiatrist (Stowe) initially classifies Cole as delusional, but she soon joins him in an adventure that will take them to the limits of human comprehension. As they race to unravel the secret of the 12 Monkeys, their paths cross with a one-card-short-of-a-full-deck mental patient (Pitt) and a renowned scientist (Plummer). Before long, Cole begins to question his own sanity in a chaotic world that offers many questions but few answers.
