Johann Gambolputty is a sketch that appears in "It's the Arts," the sixth episode of Monty Python's Flying Circus.

SynopsisEdit

Arthur Figgis (Graham Chapman) introduces It's the Arts, in which the German Baroque composer, Johann Gambolputty de von Ausfern-schplenden-schlitter-crasscrenbon-fried-digger-dingle-dangle-dongle-dungle-burstein-von-knacker-thrasher-apple-banger-horowitz-ticolensic-grander-knotty-spelltinkle-grandlich-grumble-meyer-spelterwasser-kurstlich-himbleeisen-bahnwagen-gutenabend-bitte-ein-nürnburger-bratwustle-gerspurten-mitzweimache-luber-hundsfut-gumberaber-shönendanker-kalbsfleisch-mittler-aucher von Hautkopft of Ulm is to be discussed.

An interviewer (John Cleese) begins speaking to the composer's sole surviving relative, Karl Gambolputty de von Ausfern-schplenden-schlitter-crasscrenbon-fried-digger-dingle-dangle-dongle-dungle-burstein-von-knacker-thrasher-apple-banger-horowitz-ticolensic-grander-knotty-spelltinkle-grandlich-grumble-meyer-spelterwasser-kurstlich-himbleeisen-bahnwagen-gutenabend-bitte-ein-nürnburger-bratwustle-gerspurten-mitzweimache-luber-hundsfut-gumberaber-shönendanker-kalbsfleisch-mittler-aucher von Hautkopft of Ulm (Terry Jones). The elderly and visibly frail Karl recounts the first time he met the composer, but dies while the interviewer finishes repeating the composer's full name. The interviewer, dejected at losing the abortive interview entirely, throws down his microphone, produces a shovel and immediately begins to dig a grave for his interviewee.

Figgis proclaims it to be a tribute to Johann Gambolputty de von Ausfern-schplenden-schlitter-crasscrenbon-fried-digger-dingle-dangle-dongle-dungle-burstein-von-knacker-thrasher-apple-banger-horowitz-ticolensic-grander-knotty-spelltinkle-grandlich-grumble-meyer-spelterwasser-kurstlich-himbleeisen-bahnwagen-gutenabend-bitte-ein-nürnburger-bratwustle-gerspurten-mitzweimache-luber-hundsfut-gumberaber-shönendanker-kalbsfleisch-mittler-aucher von Hautkopft of Ulm. (During the name pronunciations, John Cleese as a viking, Michael Palin as a teacher, the knight (Terry Gilliam), and countless animation characters join in, saying a part of it, one by one)
