If you’ve never seen Monty Python’s Flying Circus, go watch it immediately. Like, right now. Then come back here with at least one dead parrot joke. For those of you familiar with the legendary British program, the animation style of this Terry Gilliam short from 1968 should seem familiar. Shortly before Flying Circus, Gilliam was a freelance animator and put together this eight-minute short about a friendly cockroach. At least, that’s what it was about… until he everything breaks down and starts again with….something completely different.

Directed and animated by: Terry Gilliam
