Michael Palin and Terry Jones of Monty Python fame collaborated on Ripping Yarns, a half-hour comedy series from the BBC. In true Python style, each episode is a send up of old-fashioned boys adventure stories with fantastical settings and improbable characters. The cast varied from episode to episode but featured such notable actors as Denholm Elliot and Ian Ogilvy, as well as Palin himself.
