Item details



Paper, Brads

This paper doll is based on John Cleese's sketch "The Ministry of Silly Walks" from Monty Python's Flying Circus.

The original design is scanned and then laser printed on heavy 140# index paper (cardstock). He is cut and assembled by me with tiny brads to make him posable. This ministry worker has a lot of joints! His briefcase and umbrella move as well, but the umbrella is very delicate and you should take great care when moving it into silly walk positions!

He is about 12 inches tall and about 3 inches wide. He has 12 articulating joints.

"lt's not particularly silly, is it? I mean, the right leg isn't silly at all and the left leg merely does a forward aerial half turn every alternate step."

"Yes, but I think that with Government backing I could make it very silly."

The perfect gift for any Python fan.
