    KRIS, I think I’m also looking for the same movie, if I’m correct there was also a scene where the cowboy trying to stop the coach also swung from a rope and missed and hits a rock instead. And in another scene the one i remember most is the lone rider gets run over by a boulder and full smashes him into ground leaving his frame outline and all that was sticking was his nose which cracked when he wiggled it. The character was a clumsy, fail at everything cowboy. Please help

  2. Alan

    i am looking for a western, it was a comedy where one of the characters was called frog, it was a funny line where he said people call me frog, a bloke says really whats your real name, to which he replies frog, it was in the 70′s i think.

  3. Barry

    In this comedy there were two men in a little western town who were always fighting. One was a big man and the other, a little thinner. Their battles, about who was the better man, were ripping up the town. The sherif, having had enough, tolded them that the one who won a scavinger hunt, where one of the items to be collected was a feather from the headdress of Chief Crasy Horse, would be the better man. The smaller of the two men, in this super funny scene, came across a crazy old coot on the prairie and asked him, as they were walking leading there horses, if he knew where he might find Chief Crasy Horse. One momment the old man would say, “oooh! sure I know Chief CH me and him go way back”, and the next momment, at the other mans request as to CCH’s whereabouts, he would reply, “Who?”. Other man: “CCH”. Old Man: “Where! Where is he, that no good snake #&%!*!”, as he pulled his gun waving it around. He was loco! I remember him saying that people thought he was nuts, but he would just act that way because the indians believed that a crazy man was bad medicine. But, the resulting conversation, which was simular to “who’s on first”, proved him wacky!
    What was the name of this Film. I think I saw it back in the early eightys on either TBS,TNT,USA or something like that. Please help if you can, Thanks!

  4. Michelle

    Does anyone know of an old western comedy where the “bad guy” kidnaps a woman and the “good guy” is trying to get her back? The good guy had a funny horse who stole his blanket at night, would come when the good guy whistled, and pouted if he got in trouble. I don’t know what it was called or who was in it but would like to find out. Thanks!

  5. beau samson

    hey. i’m looking for a much more recently released comedy western. i remember hearing it’s by the directors of or writers of or producers of or something a long those lines of Airplane!

    it starts off with the main character as a kid, and in one scene he has to crawl up a horse or donkeys ass. in another scene later in the movie, one of the background trees is an actor in a tree suit who a bullet hits. the tree then dies in dramatic fashion. ring any bells, anyone? Thanks!!@$

  6. barnelly

    Can anyone identify a comedy western from around 1970′s. The plot involved a gold strike and at certain times during the film (e.g. when the cowboy kissed the saloon girl), cupids fluttered across the screen!? Please prove I’m not crazy, I know I saw this movie in Weymouth but no one believes me!!

  7. roberta Thames

    I am looking for a movie with a very famous actor that is saddled with a teenager. they are searching for gold,in a canyon, among others, And they finally get it.

  8. Mona

    who knows the name of a comedy in which a cowboy goes back in time as a roman. There is a scene where he is driving a car with horses, the two weels fell off and you see his legs running….
    Another scene is, he is standing in a saloon another man enters and wants to shoot him and he is faster because he shoot through his holster. I hope somebody remember this scenes.

  10. Hellothere

    Can anyone recognize the movie where two cowboys are traveling to do something, the memorable thing about it though is that the younger one keeps accidentally shootin his horses.There is a scene where this cowboy is told to keep his gun pointed to the sky all night to steady his aim, but he falls asleep and shoots his horse when his hand drops. Anyone remember what this movie was called?

  11. Chuck

    Hi everyone. Odd question, I know, but there is a western that’s a comedy where, at one point, one of the actors–every time he shoots his gun–two indians fall off their horse. He runs out of bullets, THROWS his gun, two indians again fall off their horse. Does anyone know which movie this scene is in? Thank you! Charley (

  12. GUS

  13. QuestFinder

    Includes some kind of hot lava like pond and robot type things near the end!! anyone pleeeees!!!

  14. zoie

    Dave Hazelwood, I can remember that movie. I sat in his hysterics at the point you have raised.
    At the start of the film the key characters save a girl from the local witch doctor I think. The Chief and warriors couldn’t get anything right and it was a very funny movie. Sadly even after researching still can’t find the movies name:/

  15. Dave Hazelwood

    Help ! Can somebody help me remember a movie?

    It was an old comic western.

    All I remember about it is this Indian they kept calling “Chief”
    and he would appear again and again riding on a horse and he or a cowboy chasing him kept riding into an overhanging limb of a true and being knocked off his horse. The first time it was funny. The second and third time, even funnier.

    No much to go on I know but with all the movie fiends here I
    am betting somebody will remember it.

    I recall it as being black & white but am not positive. Also remember a lot of dialogue in a saloon.

    Ring any bells for anyone?

    Mack Sennett made some comedy Westerns including two or three two reel talkies with his last sweetheart Marjorie Beebe. One at least of them also had a horse in a starring role. Madcap Beebe and her equally madcap filly run away to a circus where the filly falls in love with a big Arab stallion. When Beebe’s exasperated old father, played by the excellent Andy Clyde, catches up with them the horse tries to mediate between father and daughter. Clyde was about the first in a long line of wonderful old critters in Westerns, a line that includes Walter Brennan and my personal favorite Edgar Buchanan.

  17. maryanne

    hi can you tell me what comedy western this scene is from? three or four actors jump out of a window or maybe a roof onto the back of one horse and tear off. it was very funny. i had thought it was part of cat ballou but have just watched that movie again and found it wasnt part of that movie. any help appreciated cheerio maryanne

  18. Looking for old western comedy with indians and soldiers in it. In one scene the Chief tell the other indian to shoot and arrow on fire to burn a wagon and he sets the Chiefs headdress on fire. In another scene the Colonel tells the soldier to shoot at the idians and ends up shooting the Colonel in the butt. My Dad and Mom got up in the middle of the night to watch this because I was laughing so hard. He is really sick and I would like to find this to watch with him again.

  19. Please help me!!!

    Tal–the movie you want is “The Fastest Guitar Alive,” starring Roy Orbison (yes, the singer). It’s available on DVD; I think carries it.

  21. cino

    I’m curious as to the name of a western comedy I saw at least 15 years ago. Its about two brothers, in one scene, one is described as being the fastest gun in the west, and his brother is described as being the strongest man in the west, by one of the men’s children. Does anyone know which movie I am referring to? Thankyou

  22. I am trying to find out the name of a movie that was out around 1967 or 1968 . It was very funny, and it was about them bring alcohol across country and several groups were trying to get to the alcohol either to steal it or help it get to area, there was also a group who did not want alcohol and also the indians were trying to get the alcohol it would show a map of them all coverging on the train and it was so funny

  23. Miguel

    Trying to find this movie where the funniest scene is a gunslinger too drunk to stand but needed to help the main character in a shootout in some town. In order to make him look like he has it under control they bind him up on a plank or something and display him in a window as sober. I always thought this was in cat ballou but it is not. I do think it is Lee Marvin that plays the drunk. Anyone recognize this????

  24. Tal Blaiser

    Greetings. I am looking for an old movies that I watched when I was young, I can’t remember the names of the characters or the title of the movie.

    Thank you.

  26. Kris

    Anyone know what movie this is? I remember seeing this in the 1980s,but only remember two scenes in this movie. One scene was a man and woman in a horse and buggy (or it could have been a train) riding through some mountains and they could go through these black tunnel like doors, but when the people following them tried to go through it it was solid. The next scene was this woman kissed this guy and he started to go in really fast motion. Anyone know what I am talking about?

  27. klaus schmidt

    what about “the cockeyed cowboys of calico county”? If you left that one off you don’t need to be doing this anymore. that’s not only a top ten but also most memorable as well as funny, better than most of those you have listed in the top 10!
