Cat Detector Van

I recently recalled a notion called the “Cat Detector Van”. Here is a Cat Detector Van reference from the “Fish License” sketch of Monty Python:

Video of television version that segues into the rugby match:

Text of the audio, I think from the album “Matching Tie and Handkerchief” but maybe another which segues into “Eric the Half a Bee”:

I also recall a TV sketch with the actual van, but couldn’t find it on short order. Hadn’t seen this in decades. Amazing what’s on the net nowadays.

Addendum: Sorry. Bad memory. It wasn’t Matching Tie and Handkerchief (double-grooved vinyl, I’d forgotten that too), but “Monty Python’s Previous Record“. Double amazing what the net has. After recording and transcribing all the TV episodes, I’d taken to transcribing the albums too. Ah, the joys of youth. Forgot to mention that bit in my recent poem.
