I guess a couple more questions...

1. What python are you using (MacOS bundled, python.org,other)?
2. What MacOS?

and just typing idle works for me as well.  On my system, it's running /usr/bin/idle
I don't have any anaconda installs, so not a good comparison, but definitely have more than just a bare-bones path
