This is just my contribution to a classic running joke, going all the way back to Mel Brooks’ Blazing Saddles who in turn was referencing the original scene in The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (with Humphrey Bogart). The original line involved ‘we don’t need no stinking badges’. It was voted 36th in the American Film Institute’s list of top 100 movie quotes. For all its uses, on TV, in films, songs, cartoons, radio and books check out http://www.rudebadmood.com/badges/index.shtml.
And this cartoon even appears on this list of great quote uses.
