14. THE RABBIT OF CAERBANNOG IN MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL (1975)

To view the Rabbit of Caerbannog as “obnoxious,” one must put his or herself in the shoes of Monty Python’s King Arthur’s court. For anyone who watches the film with a sense of humor and/or a heartbeat, the British comedy troupe’s send-up of Medieval lore is altogether brilliant and never obnoxious.

In the story’s context, the rabbit isn’t just intolerable—it’s unstoppably homicidal. Step anywhere near it and the cute little slayer will fly up to your neck and somehow bite your head off, and that can get old real fast. Sounds more deadly than bothersome? You try walking around with soiled armor.
