** The "Blood, Devastation, Death, War & Horror" episode had a [[AnagramBin Fun With Anagrams]] RunningGag, and the closing credits had the Python members in anagrams (Rice Lied, Torn Jersey, etc.), as well as the crew's titles.

* AluminumChristmasTrees: [[http://blog.modernmechanix.com/fabulous-new-sauna-belt-trim-jeans/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+ModernMechanix+%28Modern+Mechanix%29 Trim-Jeans]] were real.
* AlwaysABiggerFish: A literal example occurs in one of the animations, when the victim of the Fish Slapping Dance is eaten by a German fish that apparently doubles as a submarine. That fish is then eaten by a larger British fish, and then ''that'' fish is eaten by an even larger Chinese fish.



* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Pick a character. Any character. (Averted with Arthur Putey.)

* ExperimentalArcheology: "Mr. and Mrs. Brian Norris's Ford Popular".



* ForgotToPayTheBill: In one episode the BBC runs out of money, and the gas and heat get turned off in the flat they use as their studio.



* GoingDownWithTheShip: The S.S. Mother Goose, the captain is on the intercom announcing that women and children are to get on the lifeboats first. Inside the cabin, the crew is dressing up like women and children, but they run out of costumes and some of the crew dress up as other things to avoid their fate.
-->'''Captain''': This is your captain speaking, do not rush to the life boats, women, children, Red Indians, spacemen and sort of idealized versions of the complete Renaissance man first.



* NonAnswer: "How to Do It" shows us how to play the flute and cure the world of all known diseases.



* SpontaneousHumanCombustion: Mrs. Niggerbaiter
-->"It's funny, isn't it, how... how your best friend could just... blow up like that. I mean, you wouldn't think it was medically possible, would you?"

Added DiffLines:

* EpicFail: In the Election Sketch, Kevin Phillips Bong of the Slightly Silly Party gets zero votes. Presumably, he even neglected to vote for himself.


Added DiffLines:

* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: Hank and Roy Spim kill a mosquito with a shoulder-fired rocket and belt-fed machine gun, with a ''coup de grace'' from a Lanchester machine gun at point-blank range.
--> There is nothing more dangerous than a wounded mosquito.

** Also, in the Chemist Sketch:
--> It is against the policy of the BBC to get cheap laughs with [[InherentlyFunnyWords words like knickers, bum, or wee-wees.]]

** One filmed segment of an official ceremony, complete with grandstand full of dignitaries and ribbon-cutting, to dedicate...a postbox. Including Michael Palin reading out a speech, [[GratuitousFrench repeating the speech in French]], and ''[[GratuitousGerman starting to repeat it in German]]'' before the sketch [[OverlyLongGag finally ends]].

-->'''John Cleese:''' Graham Chapman, co-author of the Parrot Sketch, is no more. He has ceased to be, bereft of life, he rests in peace, he has kicked the bucket, hopped the twig, bit the dust, snuffed it, breathed his last, and [[WentToTheGreatXInTheSky gone to meet the Great Head of Light Entertainment in the sky]]. And I guess that we're all thinking how sad it is that a man of such talent, of such capability for kindness, for such unusual intelligence, a man who could overcome his alcoholism with such truly admirable single-mindedness, should now so suddenly be spirited away at the age of only forty-eight before he'd achieved many of the things in which he was capable, and before he'd had enough fun. Well, I feel that I should say, ''"Nonsense! Good riddance to him, the freeloading bastard, I hope he fries!"'' And the reason I feel I should say this is he would never forgive me if I didn't. If I threw away this glorious opportunity to shock you all on his behalf. [[RefugeInAudacity Anything for him but mindless good taste.]] I could hear him whispering in my ear last night as I was writing this, "Alright, Cleese," he was saying, "You're very proud of being [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar the very first person ever to say 'shit' on British television]]; if this service is really for me -- just for starters -- I want you to become the first person ever at a British memorial service to say [[PrecisionFStrike 'fuck']]."
