Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. This comedian and world traveler met his future wife, Helen Gibbins, when they were teenagers on vacation with their families. Which man, known as the nice Python, married "the girl next door"?

Answer: Michael Palin

Michael and Helen met when he was 15 and she was 16, and they were married in 1966, after he graduated from Oxford University. Their long marriage survived the "Monty Python" comedy troupe years and Michael's multiple journeys as a travel documentary presenter, starting with "Around the World in 80 Days". During his "Full Circle" documentary, while he was in Borneo, Helen was diagnosed with a brain tumor and needed an urgent operation.

They decided there was no point in Michael coming home for the surgery, and he continued his journey while Helen made a full recovery.

In typical "Monty Python" style, fellow "Python" John Cleese quipped that Michael could have picked up another head for Helen while he was in Borneo.
