The subject of one of the most popular Monty Python sketches is headed to toy shelves in the form of the Monty Python Exploding Penguin Plush, available exclusively through Diamond Comic Distributors
Monty Python is one of the most popular comedy troupes of all time. Their British wit and dark, sarcastic edge paved the road for future sketch comedy groups and shows, such as Kids in the Hall and Saturday Night Live. The group reached heights of popularity like no comedy troupe before or since, with several hit TV shows, 5 classic movies, and a wide variety of collectible merchandise.
This new plush features the penguin from "The Death of Mary, Queen of Scots/ Exploding Penguin on TV Set" sketch from Monty Python's Flying Circus - Episode 22. It even features Velcro closures that can be opened to reveal the "explosion" inside! Following the success of the previous Monty Python Killer Rabbit and Monty Python Live Parrot plushes, this plush should prove to be a hit for fans of the group and collectors of unique merchandise. Scheduled to ship in November 2002, this is one plush that no Python fan will want to miss.
