    There is also a stop motion puppet film of the story, made by Jiri Trnka.

    I have the official DVD release but this print actually looks much better. Thanks RL!

  3. Helen says:

    Thanks very much! – this is an absolute chestnut which (hint, hint) you might follow with The Strange Case of the End of Civilization as We Know It (1977).

  4. Mr.G. says:

    Andrew Sachs (Manuel) on a serious role there, such a lovely humorous short only John Cleese (and wife) would deliver.

  5. Phaota says:

    Commentary is with co-producers David King and Ian Gordon.
