I watched And Now for Something Completely Different for the zillionth time, and I think I noticed that Conrad Pooh's face is actually Terry Gilliam's face. Is that right? It has to be, for there are very few people with such a big dimple in their chin :)

yes, as the internet tells us so

'He was created and animated by Python member Terry Gilliam, who actually used his own face to create Conrad. '

I'd always thought it was Gilliam's face.

My 4-year-old nephew just loves that clip, he makes me play it over and over, and he cracks up!! Hopefully, he'll become a big Python fan too :lol:

i always knew it was gilliam too. i don't know how i just did! its weird. but i love that animation so much. i think its a combination of the music and the randomness of the teeth. but when i first saw it i cried laughing.

I knew it was Terry G, but it always makes me think of a friend who used to smile just like that and dart his eyes from side to side in a bit of a manic way.

P.S. My friends teeth couldn't dance.
