The Monty Python gang want to work with South Park.
Terry Jones is reuniting with his old comedy collaborators John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Michael Palin and Eric Idle for the Monty Python Live (Mostly) show, and he claims the controversial American animation is the modern-day equivalent of their iconic British sketch show, Monty Python's Flying Circus.
"It's so successful and brilliant. It makes me laugh. We'd like to do something with them but I don't know yet because it's early days for the Python reunion. Besides, I'm just getting used to being in my 70s," the 71-year-old star told The Sun newspaper.
Terry credits South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker - who have admitted the show's style of animation is inspired by the paper cut-out cartoons made by Terry Gilliam for Monty Python's Flying Circus and have cited the group's work as a major inspiration - for making the Pythons' reunion happen in the first place: "They sparked it off when they said they'd like to do a show with us - they were big followers of Monty Python. That sowed the seed of the Python reunion," he explained.
