    supposedly built a wooden horse large enough to fit several of their soldiers inside. They tricked the city of Troy into believing that the horse was a gift so that the hidden soldiers were able to enter the city of Troy and attack. In the film, there is a Trojan Bunny which King Arthur and his men intend use to do the same thing as the Greeks did in history as they attempt to enter a castle. The familiarity of the story allows the audience to understand the humor in the plan that the men have. Another scene is when one of King Arthur’s knights, Galahad, enters Anthrax and encounters 150 virgins there who all quite intensely crave him. This scene depicts the women in an almost-pornographic way which is a familiar concept to many people. The 150 virgins make sexual comments towards Galahad and drape themselves around him in a sexual manner. The scene is therefore comedic to the audience because they understand the way the women are acting towards Galahad and can connect it to the way women act in pornographic material. The final scene that utilizes familiarity as…

Harry also bares similarities to Bors, in that Harry actually returns from the grail quest and has a scar on his head similar to Bors’. Both Galahad and Cedric are chosen to pursue the Holy Grail or the…

    “Don’t let it be forgot, that once there was a spot, for one brief shining moment that was known as Camelot.” These words were sung at the end of Camelot, a musical on Broadway during JFK’s presidency. It was one of his favorite songs, and Camelot has since been a term referring to his “reign.” It’s a beautiful metaphor for the family, as there are many similarities between the two.

    In the Arthurian legends Galahad is presented as pure and chaste. It's possible that this scene was meant to show him as Galahad "the chased" instead of "the chaste". Galahad is portrayed in legend as being the purest of the knights and once again we see his visit to the Castle Anthrax as being a way of the film makers ridiculing the idea of purity and chastity and the high ideal of his quest. The idea that Monty Python and the Holy Grail is a historically accurate portrayal of the medieval…
