Idle upset over joke in Shrek the Third?

While visiting the Toronto radio station Mix 99.9, Eric Idle, who voices Merlin in Shrek the Third, revealed that he became “furious” upon seeing a scene in the sequel during its premiere and is supposedly considering legal action, according to Canada.com. The sequence’s joke involves Prince Charming, a horse and two coconut halves, which the actor claims has been lifted from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. When asked if he had considered that the gag might simply be homage, Idle reportedly answered, “Do you think if I stole your wallet that’d be an homage to your money?”
