Eric Idle's terrific Monty Python followup. RWT was shot on a very small (almost nonexistent) budget in 1975-75, but shows Eric Idle at his creative peak as a writer. The show features the music of Neil Innes, of the Bonzo Dog (Doo Dah) Band and the Rutles. The show isn't available on DVD, partly because Eric doesn't want it to be.
