"Exploding Penguin on the TV Set" features John Cleese and Graham Chapman as 'Pepperpots' listening to Radio 4’s new drama series, “The Death of Mary Queen of Scots”, in their living room, at the end of which their radio explodes. On seeking alternative entertainment, they turn to see what is on the TV, on top of which is a penguin. A farcical conversation ensues about Penguins - where they come from, how they are labelled, what happens when it lays an egg. The conversation ends with the TV presenter (Terry Jones) announcing that it's time for the penguin on top of the television set to explode. This sketch, from "Monty Python's Flying Circus", premiered on 24 November 1970 in Series 2, Episode 9. The sketch was also featured in the 2014 reunion shows, "Monty Python Live (mostly) - One Down Five to Go", with John and Terry Jones as ‘Pepperpots’ and Michael Palin as the TV presenter.
