** During the "Court Scene (Charades)" sketch in Episode 15 ("The Spanish Inquisition"), John Cleese as the QC (i.e. prosecutor) mistakenly calls for Exhibit Q. In 2002, Cleese would ''play'' the character Q in the 007 film [[Film/DieAnotherDay]].

** The idea of the "Wee-wee Wines" sketch i.e. urine being passed off as fancy wine, was nixed by either BBC management or John Cleese, depending on who you ask. This exact joke finally was aired in the ''[[Series/{{Blackadder}} Blackadder II]]'' episode "Potato".

* WhatAnIdiot: In the "Election Night Sketch", the unofficial "Very-Silly Candidate" gets two votes (presumably from people who would've voted for the official Silly Party Candidate), thus allowing the Sensible Party to take the constituency by a single vote. Also, the Slightly-Silly candidate gets zero votes, indicating that he didn't even vote for himself.

** Certain sketches fall under this as well. The Four Yorkshiremen sketch was originally written and performed for ''At Last The 1948 Show'', but the Pythons (two of whom, Chapman and Cleese, had been a part of said show) began performing it in their live stage shows, leading to its association with the ''Flying Circus''. The "Job Interview" sketch had originally been written by Cleese as part of a 1968 American television special, ''How to Irritate People'' (also featuring Chapman and Palin); Cleese's ''1948'' co-star Tim Brooke-Taylor played Chapman's interviewee role. It's worth noting the same special also introduced us to the [[GossipyHens Pepperpots]].

** "The Mouse Problem" satirized then current attitudes of homosexuality by replacing homosexuals with men who dress up like mice; today, we now have [[FurryFandom fursuiters]].

* WeirdAlEffect: Numerous bits of British pop culture are known in the US mainly because they were spoofed here, like ''{{Literature/Biggles}}'' and {{Pantomime}}. American fans have been known to regard things like that as AluminumChristmasTrees.
