Introduction

The Time Bandits, released in 1981, is a family film created by Terry Gilliam and Michael Palin, best known for their roles in the comedy group Monty Python. The film centers around a history-loving ten year old who is startled by the emergence of a knight on horseback from his closet one night and of six dwarves with a special map the next. The six dwarves, self-proclaimed robbers that are traveling through time in search of great treasures, are pursued by someone that they call the Supreme Being, and Kevin is caught up in the chase. They travel through Napoleonic and Medieval times, Ancient Greece, Sherwood Forest, and the Time of Legends, even spending a little time on the Titanic before finally encountering an adversary known as Evil Genius. Eventually, Kevin is returned home, where a chunk of evil that has gotten lodged in the family’s toaster oven evaporates his clueless parents.

Time Bandits Inspired Dog Name Considerations

There are a number of different methods that can be used to choose an appropriate name for your new canine companion, including honoring an individual, referring to a special place, or selecting a name based on a specific definition. Another popular source of inspiration can come from books, television shows, and movies. The movie Time Bandits, released in 1981, was written by two of the Monty Python group, Terry Gilliam and Michael Palin, and produced by Terry Gilliam and George Harrison of the Beatles. Some people use the names of characters for their inspiration, choosing a name like Strutter for a particularly smart dog, or Wally for a dog with a great deal of strength. Places included in the plot can also become a moniker for your dog, such as Castiglione, or places where the show was filmed, such as Raglan, for the Raglan castle in Wales. Inspiration can even be found with objects mentioned in the film, such as Bunkadoo, the six hundred foot high tree developed by the dwarves, or Champagne, which they enjoyed when travelling on the Titanic. Other individuals may choose to commemorate those who have something to do with its creation, giving your dog a name like Irene, for the casting director of the film, or even George, Terry, or Michael, honoring the writers and producers of the film.
