Sheriff Bart

In Blazing Saddles, Bart (Cleavon Little) is a railroad worker who is about to be hanged, when he is appointed to become sheriff of a frontier town. As a black sheriff in the Old West, Bart faces hostility from the townspeople, but gets by with the help of his quick wits and the Waco Kid.


In Spaceballs, Barfolomew (John Candy), better known to his friends as Barf, is a mawg — half man, half dog. Captain Lone Starr’s right hand, he is his own best friend.
