Monty Python and the Holy Grail Scene 15

Scene 15

Scene 15

  • Here's another strange animation, this time about the weather. A scribe hears what sounds like thunder.
  • Investigating, he finds the sun and clouds jumping up and down making booming noises.
  • This somehow transitions us into a beautiful father-son moment.
  • The father and son live in a castle sinking into a swamp.
  • The father is forcing his son into a financially beneficial marriage to a wealthy landowner's daughter.
  • The lad protests; he just wants to sing but his father is having none of that.
  • Dad posts two guards to make sure his son doesn't run away, but they're a bit daft and it takes them a while to catch on to the whole "guarding" thing.
  • Herbert, the son, scrawls a quick note, attaches it to an arrow, and shoots it out the window.
