The Men in the Tiger Costume are two random men in a tiger costume that appeared in Monty Python's The Meaning of Life. They live in Africa and were framed for ripping off Perkins' leg while he was asleep. When the Military Doctor (John Cleese) finds out about this, he looks for a tiger and starts shooting at the costume wearers. They quickly tell them to stop and the Military Doctor asks them why they're dressed up as a tiger. They nervously babble and tell numerous lies. They were played by Eric Idle and Michael Palin.
