Greatest title sequence that never was

After a discussion about the great title sequences of shows from yesteryear.
I realised that this was one of the greatest marriages of graphic design and music.

The Bishop from Monty Python ep17 and a bit of true genius. One of those occasions where the parody is as good, if not better, than the original. See also Bitches Ain't Shit by Ben Folds
The graphics are by Terry Gilliam. The tune that defines the word rollicking, so driving, chaotic and brassy it almost collapses in on itself, is Superformance by David Lindup and His Orchestra. Huge thanks to Ocho from the CAB forums for fixing me up with a tune itself)
