Panda in a Balloon, plus Peter Cook and Funny Face

In this unfinished sketch, Panda is traveling by hot air balloon.  Lucky Panda.
Inspired by the balloon theme I have added not one but two (!) Peter Cook clips.
One with Dudley Moore where Peter Cook plays Toulouse Lautrec.  In French.  You don't need to be au fait with francais to enjoy it though...
The second clip is from the Secret Policeman's Ball in 1979 with Eleanor Bron.
The final excerpt is from "Think Pink" from Funny Face.
There are balloons in this sequence.
I may be reaching just slightly to include a clip by one of my favourite directors - Stanley Donen.  He directed Pete and Dud in Bedazzled.  (Bears only the slightest relation to the later Liz Hurley vehicle - more of a rickety old cart than a balloon, if you want my opinion.....)
