I tend to think of these things as part of a lineage which to my reckoning starts with Edward Lear but maybe it goes back further than that. Swift, perhaps?
Another Goonite here (no surprise here!). I used to listen to it in the car with my Dad.

I think 'The Phantom Head Shaver' is probably my favourite.

As for Python? I've watched the films (obviously) but I've only ever caught parts of the television series. The Fish-slapping sketch is my favourite visual sketch in anything I've ever seen but I need to explore deeper.

EDIT:

I just remembered 'Cheese Shop'. That gets me into absolute fits of giggles.
