Like so many things, the Chinese  had Monty Python well before the West.  My wife was looking through a book on Ming Dynasty Chinese ceramics, and look what she found:

Ming Dynasty monty python

The resemblance of this 1620’s era dish to the Rabbit of Caerbannog is uncanny.  While I am not accusing the Pythons of plagiarism yet, I consider it fair warning to reveal that I am currently looking into rumers of a early Qing dynasty dead panda sketch.
