To name but a few (t' is but a scratch):

How Not To Be Seen
Funniest Joke In The World
The Spanish Inquisition
Upper Class Twit Of The Year Contest
Flying Sheep

Erm... I don't know about you, ladies and gedderbong, but it's been about 15 years since I've last seen the series on television. Anyone know where I can buy the complete Flying Circus series on DVD (or video) in PAL format?

My five favourite sketches would have to be:

-Children's stories (episodes 3)(I had to reference that because it is rather obscure)

-The Communist quiz

-Cannibalism

-The Spanish Inquisition

-Today in Parliament

Incidently, I saw someone mentioned the Greek Philosophers vs. German Philosophers, I believe that's a Fliegender Zirkus sketch, are we counting those?

If you're going to split hairs, I'm going to piss off.

<font face='Comic Sans MS'></font id='Comic Sans MS'>What about the sketch at the start of episode 15 in one of the seasons i dont know. Where theres a guy running and he has wings, hes pedalling with his arms, then he looks like hes flying but the camera turns round and hes falling off a cliff, had me laughing for ages. I watch them on paramount. Plus i love the spanish inquisition

You must cut down the mightiest tree in the forest... With A Herring!!! Ni!

Right! I'll have a go at it!

1:Clocks smuggled from Switzerland.
2:Silly job interview.
3:Confuse a cat limited.
4:The argument sketch. "This isn't an argument! Yes it is! No it isn't it's merely contradiction! No it isn't!"

And number 5.
The great Karl Gambolputty de von Austern-schlplenden-schlitter-crasscrenbon-fried-digger-dingle-dangle-
dongle-dungle-burstein-von-knacker-thrasher-apple-banger-horowitz-ticolensic-
grander-knotty-spelltinker-grandlich-grumblemeyer-spelterwasser-kurtslich-himbleeisen-
bahnwagen-gutenabend-bitte-ein-nurnberger-bratwustle-gerspurten-mitz-weimache-luber-
hundsfut-gumberaber-shonendanker-kalbsfleisch-mittler-aucher-von Hautkopft of Ulm.

But it's my only line!
