Keyboard problems with Python shell over SSH

I'm not sure this is Python-related but it might be since Bash and vim
works perfectly.

I connect to my server using SSH and then run 'python' to enter the
shell.  I can't use the arrow buttons (up, down, left and right).
Instead I get this ^[[A , ^[[B,  ^[[C or  ^[[D.

How do I get my arrow buttons to work?

Sorry if this is offtopic.
