"Self Defence Against Fresh Fruit" is about an RSM-type instructor (John Cleese) who is teaching a class about self-defence, but all he teaches is how to defend oneself against an assailant "armed" with a piece of fresh fruit. The sketch first appeared in "Monty Python's Flying Circus" Series 1, Episode 4 - "Owl Stretching Time" - which premiered on 26 October 1969. The first part of the sketch was also remade for the Pythons' first feature film "And Now For Something Completely Different", released in 1971.
