Geek Moments: Fellow Hatters, Here's a Name Drop from November 24, 1970

Updated: Jun 1, 2020

Ever since I'd discovered that Netflix had removed the film "Monty Python's: And Now for Something Completely Different" ( Boo! I love that movie, bring it back, Netflix! ) in order to replace it with EVERY SINGLE OTHER WORK ever conceived and made by Monty Python ( On second thought, yay! Totally worth it! ), I've been leisurely working my way through the show that started it all:

"Monty Python's Flying Circus"

20 episodes into the series, I made a startling discovery: my Canadian hometown is mentioned BY NAME!

*le gasp*

Well... Technically we're being excluded because the exact quote is "...anywhere BUT Medicine Hat", but hey, we're the ones being mentioned by name!


Don't believe me?

Enjoy this clip from "Monty Python's Flying Circus" Series 2, Episode 9 titled 'How to Recognize Parts of the Body' which originally aired November 24, 1970:


I also made a gif set which can be found here. Ya know, just in case YouTube takes the video clip down. ^^;;
