    RIP, in addition to Monty Python and other comedies, he did a number of very good documentaries. They have a bit of comedic flare, as well as some of that classic Monty Python like animation from certain scenes.

    His best was a 4 part series on The Crusades, but I can't find it on youtube for some reason, used to be on there.

    Which member was everyone’s favorite?

    I’m a Michael Palin guy.

    RIP. Sad to hear.

    I’ll most remember him from that scene in Holy Grail where he is the prince who doesn’t want to get married but just wants to sing...

    With Palin as his father and Chapman and Idle as the two royal guards. For me, it’s the funniest sequence in the film and that’s saying something, as there are many hilarious moments.

    He was also great as the knight that Arthur first recruits. The guy whose insane pseudoscience is used during the witch trial.

    Didn't even realize he wrote Labyrinth

    When guys like him go I don't mourn much. They've made their mark and their work is timeless, they'll live forever. So celebrate.

    One of the things that bums me out is that Monty Python members will die in my lifetime. I've always like Jones. Underrated & outshone by his peers but he had a warm quality (Palin has it too) that Idle & Cleese lacks.

    RIP.

    Palin and Jones were writing partners so he had a hand in those characters.

    At the sillier end of Python but I always loved...

    I think actually Palin/Jones was a lot of what held Python together, not just Jones being the organiser(and going on to direct the films) but in finding the middle ground between the more Obxbridge Cleese/Chapman stuff and the broader Eric Idle stuff.

    RIP

    Really inappropriate time and place to name everybody else as their favourite Monty Python
