It was 1975, and Warner Bros. had to do SOMETHING with BLAZING SADDLES or else they'd lose the rights. Their solution: shoot four whole seasons of a sitcom spin-off called BLACK BART, starring future Academy Award-winner Louis Gossett Jr., and only air a single episode. Loopholes! You gotta love 'em!
