Monty Python and the Holy Grail is a story about the famous knights of the round table; King Arthur (Graham Chapman), Sir Lancelot (John Cleese), and Sir Robin (Eric Idle), who decide not to go to Camelot, because it is a silly place. Instead, they are charged by God to find the Holy Grail, and they set off on foot (while clanking together two halves of a coconut to make it sound like horse hooves) to find it. Along the way they meet the Knights of NI (Micheal Palin), who won't let them cross the woods until they have brought back a shrubbery, which they do, but end up having to sneak away while the Knights of NI argue amongst themselves. They also come across snotty French knights who berate them and toss livestock at them, vixens which Sir Galahad the Pure (Micheal Palin) is reluctantly saved from by Sir Robin, a Black Knight who suffers a ghastly flesh wound yet begs for more sword fighting, a killer rabbit, and a bridge keeper who asks them questions before they are allowed to pass.
