Between December 1967 and May 1969, British TV channel ITV aired a show called ‘Do Not Adjust Your Set’ which many say was a precursor to 1969’s Monty Python’s Flying Circus. I only became aware of the show thanks to my love of Python and one particular character stood out for me – Captain Fantastic!
As the lyrics from this ‘fantastic’ song will tell you, he’s more super than Superman, more bat than Batman and he’s done more good than Robin Hood!
A mere song doesn’t do him justice though, what you really want is to see him in action:
If you’re a Python fan craving something similar, you can’t go wrong with a little Captain Fantastic! Where else will you find David Jason chasing around after a walking tree?
