Final Episode of "Monty Python's Flying Circus" airs 1974
The end of an era: The last episode of Monty Python's Flying Circus aired December 5, 1974. John Cleese had left the show before the fourth (and last) season, saying the show had become repititious and had run out of ideas. He did collaborate with the other members and even appeared in one episode in the last season.
TV Guide has ranked it the 5th in the Top 25 Cult Shows Ever! and imdb.com has it ranked as #35 of the Top 250 TV shows.
Graham Chapman passed away in 1989, but the rest are still alive and kicking!
