Blazing Saddles Inspired Mug - The Sheriff Is Near
Inspired by Mel Brook's satirical western Blazing Saddles, this pop art style design mug is the perfect expression of your appreciation for (arguably) Brooks' funniest movie ever. If you like Blazing Saddles then why not check out some of our related product collections such as those inspired by The Producers, Oh Brother Where Art Thou? and Spaceballs. In order to ruin a western town, a corrupt politician appoints a black Sheriff, who promptly becomes his most formidable adversary. In this satirical take on Westerns, crafty railroad worker Bart becomes the first black sheriff of Rock Ridge, a frontier town about to be destroyed in order to make way for a new railroad. Initially, the people of Rock Ridge harbor a racial bias toward their new leader. However, they warm to him after realizing that Bart and his perpetually drunk gunfighter friend are the only defense against a wave of thugs sent to rid the town of its population.
