Maps, globes, atlases , etc. and Michael

I know I can't possibly be the only one here who has noticed that there are a lot of pics of Michael with a globe, or a map, or an atlas or something else along those lines right? So I decided to start a thread in which we can all post any pics of Michael with maps, globes, atlases , etc.

If you've edited any pics or drawn any pics of Michael with Maps, globes, atlases , etc. feel free to post them as well, I'd love to see them :)

I thought I'd start this thread with an image I edited awhile back.

I was searching through the archives and found this and realised this picture would fit perfectly in here. :)

No prob. And searching the archives is a great pastime and a source of much information. :)

That's true, I like to search the archives of Pythonline sometimes as well :)

I think this might be an inflatable!

arkennedy at 3:30 pm December 08

I think your right. If I'm remembering correctly I read somewhere that he did have an inflatable globe that he took with him during his travels. It's been so long ago though that I don't remember where I read that.

You must have read it in the 80 days book or seen it on the DVD. He took it with him on the next journey Pole to Pole and gave it to children at a school in one of the countries he visited.

arkennedy at 4:05 pm December 09

It was the 80 days book then (I haven't managed to see any of his travels yet, because I haven't been able to find the dvds).

Have you tried Amazon? You must see them! Michael is the only person that has ever been able to make me watch a travel programme! You are in for a treat!

arkennedy at 4:12 pm December 10

I don't really like to order things over the internet but I may try that if I can't find them anywhere else.

Palins passepartout at 4:33 am December 11

Amazon are very secure and trustworthy and vey quick usually, at least, in the uk. I suppose it depends where you are. My family have been pleased with their sevice anyway. Good luck!


and some more :p

These pics are great additions to this thread :) Thanks for posting them. This is from the sketch about the artists trying to paint while riding bikes right?

Later, he starts singing the Spam song. :-D


Here he is standing in front of a map


I decided it was time to add more photos to this thread. Here is an animated photo I made awhile back that I had forgotten about until I found it just now. Please click the image to see the effect.

TheSister91: O.O that's amazing!!!

Fettle: oh i do like this thread!! I bought Michael a globe from France once, obviously with all the countries written in French and he loved it :)

arkennedy at 1:26 pm November 18

Thanks :) I'm glad you like the thread. I've been enjoying seeing the pics people post here too. I wonder if any of the pics of Michael with a globe are of the globe you bought him.


Here is an image of Michael with a globe that I'm quite fond of.

By way didn't Lemming_of_the_BDA once draw a pic of the Pythons as babies where Michael was holding a globe? If I remember correctly she had written "Baby Michael loves his globe" That pic would fit in well here.

Love his smile here.

arkennedy at 1:07 pm November 18

Looks like I was mistaken it was Mr. Nudge who drew the pic I'm thinking of: either way it's still one of my favorite Python Drawings :)

Palins passepartout at 12:14 pm November 18

What a lovely picture! What a lovely face that man has! He is so open, he hides nothing! He has really enjoyed every minute of his travels hasn't he!


Yet another one! Mike is all over the world!!!

arkennedy at 2:54 pm November 17
