See Long-Lost Animation From ‘Monty Python And The Holy Grail’

And there was much rejoicing. 

A video posted on Monty Python’s official YouTube channel this week shows 14 minutes of animation created by Terry Gilliam for the 1975 classic “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” that didn’t make it into the film.

The previously unseen clips will be included as bonus features in the upcoming 40th anniversary Blu-ray and DVD release. The video posted online features some narration by Gilliam, done in typical Python style: 

“This in fact is probably the only reason to buy this new Blu-ray version of the film, for the new animation. In fact it’s old animation, but it’s the animation that was cut out by the rather envious members of the group who were trying to restrain a young and talented animator — a man who could have gone on to be a great animator, but no, he was forced into live-action filmmaking to cover the scars.” 

Gilliam also talks about some of his influences and how the animations were created. He even takes a moment to launch a mock attack on the need for a re-release. 

“All you’re seeing now is a little bit more clarity,” Gilliam said. “Which in the case of my cartoons is fascinating, because I never understood what they were about until we’ve been able to sit down and watch in high-definition exactly the work we did.” 

He adds: ”Remember, I’m not getting paid for this commentary, so the low quality of the information you’re getting is a result of that.”  

Check it out in the clip above. 

The new edition of “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” will be released on Oct. 27, including one that comes in a castle package, which doubles as a catapult for firing rubber farm animals.

M.L.B.U.: Full Monty in Korea

M.L.B.U.: Full Monty in Korea

War is usually portrayed in the popular media as the firing of weapons and the movement of troops, ships and aircraft. Occasionally a movie such as M*A*S*H will show another side of war such as the medical. But we don’t often hear about the logistical operations: the furnishing of food, water, supplies, and laundry and bath facilities.Bob Ringma, as a Canadian officer in the army during the Korean conflict, was assigned to the Mobile Laundry and Bath Unit – the MLBU. It was his responsibility to move huge vans and personnel to locations near the Front where there was some form of running water, so he could provide weary troops with the luxury of a shower and clean clothing. The process of locating these sites was in itself an adventure.
