What is it about this movie that has kept the masses laughing for all these years? My mom says it’s because King Arthur was drunk while filming the movie. Anyways, the movie was released in 1975 by the group Monty Python, and is a parodied account of King Arthur’s search for the Holy Grail. The movie later inspired a musical, Spamalot, which debuted in 2005. The movie drips satire, and also gives insight on identifying witches. We recently discovered about these awesome Pop! figures available featuring characters from the show, keep scrolling to geek out with us!
1. King Arthur
My favorite King Arthur quote is concerning the Holy Hand Grenade:
King Arthur: How does it, um…how does it work?
Sir Lancelot: I do not know, my leige.
King Arthur: Consult the Book of Armaments!
2. Tim the Nchanter
Tim the Nchanter brought the lads to the “most foul, cruel, and bad tempered rodent you ever set eyes on!” But my personal favorite quote from Tim comes after the encounter: “I warned you, but did you listen to me? Oh, no, you knew, didn’t you? Oh, it’s just a harmless little bunny, isn’t it?”
“It’s just a flesh wound.”
This guy spit a lot of comedic gold over those stone walls, but my pick has to be this:
Sir Gallahad: Is there someone else up there we could talk to?
French Taunter: No, now go away or I shall taunt you a second time.
We were sad that there were only 5 Pop! characters available, but we were super glad they included Sir Bedevere. Not only was he kind of Sir Arthur’s side kick, but he also coined the phrase, “…and that, my liege, is how we know the Earth to be banana-shaped.”
