This exhaustive reference identifies and explains the cultural, historical, and topical allusions that surfaced in the Monty Python sketch-comedy television series. Virtually every allusion and reference that appeared in an episode - whether stated by a character, depicted in the mise-en-scene, or mentioned in the printed scripts - is identified and explained. Organized chronologically by episode, each entry is listed alphabetically, indicates what sketch it appeared in, and is cross-referenced between episodes. Entries cover literary and metaphoric allusions, symbolism, names, peoples, and places, as well as the myriad social, cultural, and historical elements (photos, songs, slogans, caricatures) that populate and inform the episodes.
