Monty Python's Fliegender Zirkus wünscht Ihnen ein Glückliches Dankfest!

In 1972, in an attempt to enter the German market, The Monty Python troop filmed two 45 minute episodes entirely in German. Except for the famous lumberjack skit, all the material was new, although some was adapted from At Last, the 1948 Show. Skits include Little Red Riding Hood and The Merchant of Venice performed by cows. One particularly funny installment is the Bavarian Restaurant Sketch (featuring "Soup a la Clown") which you can see subtitled and in its entirety below. However you spend your Dankfest, be happy you are not spending it in this establishment.
