Blazing saddles by Mel Brooks( visu )
56 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in English and Italian and held by 3,386 libraries worldwide
Never give a saga an even break! Blazing Saddles is an iconoclastic, not-politically-correct parody; one of the 1970s most successful and popular films. Every clichéd element from every Western ever made is turned upside down and inside out, while retaining all the familiar caricatures--eh, characters--of the genre: a dance-hall girl, a gunslinger, a sheriff, and a town full of pure folk. Mel Brooks redefined film comedy and proved that even sophomoric, scatological humor could be used to ridicule prejudice, injustice, and apathy

Fast food magnate Doc Hopper--who is determined to enlist Kermit as spokes-frog for his southern fried frog-leg restaurants--also follows him.
