In 1975’s Monty Python and the Holy Grail, King Arthur (Graham Chapman) and his posse from Camelot face a number of belligerent foes and fierce creatures, but none more monstrous or deadly than the rabbit guarding the cave that marks the end of their sacred quest. Sure, it looks like a harmless little bunny, but the knights foolishly ignore the dire warning of the wizard Tim (John Cleese) about the rabbit’s sharp teeth and “vicious streak a mile wide.”
The biting bunny slays three of Arthur’s finest before the crew manages to take out the creature by deploying the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch.Lesson learned, though the knights really should have known to avoid all things rabbit after their debacle earlier in the movie with the Trojan bunny they built to invade the castle of the taunting Frenchmen. See, you’re supposed to hide inside the wooden beast and come out fighting once you’re inside the fortress walls, not send in an empty rabbit and let the Frenchmen hurl it back over the wall at you.
