"World Forum" was an interesting deviation from the usual sketches on 'Monty Python's Flying Circus' in that most of the actors were not members of the regular cast. Eric Idle plays the game show host of "World Forum" and Terry Jones appears as Karl Marx. But as for Che Guevera, Lenin, and Mao Tse Tung? I have no idea who the actors are. For today's "As Seen On TV" feature, here's Lenin as he looked in Skitlandia, the sketch comedy TV dimension where Python rules!

And here's the sketch itself:

When the Python troupe came over to America on tour to perform their greatest naughty bits, the roles were now played by the other Pythoners: Terry Gilliam was Mao, Michael Palin was Che, and John Cleese appeared as Lenin: BCnU!
