The idea of a piece of animation reﬂecting so strongly one individual’s aesthetic is not a new one. In the early years, animated shorts were each distinctly original and imbued with the sensibilities (in design, manner, characterization, poses) of its guiding creator, but as mediums shifted and a corporate model became the de facto production process, much of this originality was lost. That’s what makes this series so special. Bakshi made one brilliant decision when starting the series, which sealed the fate of the series and created a star.

It was the addition of this crucial piece that really brought about the birth of Monty Python.
