In this parody crime investigation programme sketch, presented by Eric Idle, the Pythons (Mike, John, Terry J and Eric) play an unruly gang of reprobate grannies terrorising Bolton - tormenting "defenseless" young men, stalking the town, shoving people off the pavement, stealing telephone boxes, and riding around on motorcycles. The sketch premiered on 7 December 1969, in Series 1, Episode 8 of "Monty Python’s Flying Circus".
