Dead Parrots Don't Lie, is an original painting commissioned for the release of Monty Python's Flying Circus video collection by Paramount Studios for the comedy troupe's television show. Selected as one of the most absurd sketches ever performed by John Cleese and Eric Idle. This piece was recreated as static image for print as inspired by Terry Gilliam's animation for television. It could never be seen on television in this form because all the elements were in motion in the rather square aspect ratio of the old PAL/NTSC broadcast standard.
