Terry Gilliam is a filmmaker and member of the acclaimed British comedy group Monty Python.


Gilliam appeared in Trey Parker and Matt Stone's short film, the "Dead Friend Sketch", which is a homage to Monty Python's famous "Dead Parrot Sketch". In the sketch, Gilliam unexpectedly appears and manipulates cutouts of Cartman and two sculptures before being crushed by a giant foot. It is later revealed that Parker and Stone are holding his mother for ransom until Gilliam makes a cartoon for South Park.

Parker and Stone have cited Gilliam as an influence on South Park's animation style.


In the sketch, Gilliam appears with a real-life photograph cutout for a head, as well as realistic hands, of which he has three.
