Anecdotally, I once found myself IN this pet shop. It was in the Caledonian Road, North London. I wandered in - I was passing and needed something or other - and realised it looked familiar. Then I saw the signed picture behind the counter. It was a still of John and Michael in that "very boutique".

The shop-owner explained that when they'd done the bit on TV, they'd HAD to do it in the studio - for the audience reaction. But since this was for the FILM ("And Now For Something Completely Different") there would be no live audience. And with the superior definition of a film, a set just wouldn't MAKE it. Real pet shops have CLUTTER. And so they'd gone and found one - HIS.

I don't know if the shop is still there - if it is, the guy has probably made more money letting people be photographed there (like on the crossing outside the Abbey Road studios) than he has selling Norwegian Blue parrots!

p.s. xmichelledd asked me if I'd post the following URL - for good karma! I've checked it out and it is what she said it was - a huge DVD set of ALL the Monty Python sketches, on Amazon - so fair enough.

The URL is: http://urlsnippy.com/CompleteMontyPyt...

But please note: Amazon are only able to ship to certain countries - however, if you live in one they DON'T ship to, you should still be able to find a NEW example of this set on EBAY - whose merchants can usually ship ANYWHERE. Just AVOID their "third-party" shipper - "Channel Advisor" - and use the merchant's OWN shipping service. Good luck.
