The Best Blazing Saddles Quotes of all Time

These Blazing Saddles quotes will make you laugh the whole way through.

The Mel Brooks comedy, Blazing Saddles, is famous for one liners that toe the line. In the western parody, no one is safe from being burned as the jokes attack at everyone.

Despite the film’s intention of making fun of racists (and everyone else), the language in many of the quotes gave the film a reputation of being racist itself. While the language may have been in good nature at the time, a film like Blazing Saddles wouldn’t survive the box office in the modern era.

Still, Blazing Saddles is an outrageous film that will make you laugh the whole way through. These are some of the best quotes from the film’s best characters.

    The quote about “sucking on my arm” was not in the movie. In an interview, Mel Brooks said that they had a line like this (Excuse me ma’am, but you’re sucking on my elbow). But left it out.

    I love Blazing Saddles. I was stationed at Myrtle Beach and everyone in the office watched it. We used to shout quotes from the movie and someone in the office would finish the scene. Someone would yell “Candy gram for Mongo”, and 3 people would yell, “Me Mongo”. Part of the game was to find a line no one could reply to, we never did. I think we could have reenacted the entire movie.
