Fliegender Zirkus is a Python treasure that has been lost since it was first released in 1977 on German television and only one episode has seen the light of day in Australia. Now aren't you excited! Python team member, Graham Chapman had this to say about the show, "It was probably a stage further on than any of the TV shows we'd done in England up to that point, in terms of absurdity and peculiar starts, and it lacked any sort of thread to keep the audience sane." On a serious note, Fliegender Zirkus, Python's German version of the Flying Circus was produced as a 45 minute special for German television. It was later shown on English television when the most hilarious wacky subtitles were added.
