1[[quoteright:210:]][[caption-width-right:210:Even the studio audience was shocked seeing this scene...]]* A few of Creator/TerryGilliam's animations. Those expressionless faces of the people on the photographs can be quite terrifying. * The "Déjà Vu" sketch is probably what insanity is actually like.* The final season sketch involving Count Ferdinand von Zeppelin features a brief bit at the beginning where his brother, Barry (Creator/TerryJones), "the least talented of the fourteen Zeppelin brothers", tries unsuccessfully to blow up balloons. The final one, a ''huge'' balloon, ends up inflating ''him'' to the point where he floats away.[[note]]read: it was a specially-made balloon[[/note]] This in itself is more humorous than scary, but the quick cuts used to simulate Barry being blown up are ''very'' good at making it seem like Jones is ''actually'' being blown up... in a rather [[JumpScare startling]] manner...* "The Undertaker Sketch", where Creator/JohnCleese is suggested to [[BlackComedyCannibalism eat the corpse of his own mother]]. And he agrees!* Doug Piranha. Nobody wanted to see Doug. [[TheDreaded Everyone was terrified of Doug. Grown men would pull their own heads off rather than see Doug]]. [[EvenEvilHasStandards Even Dinsdale was frightened of Doug]].** He used [[SeriousBusiness Sarcasm]].
