The scene between Bart and Lilly in Blazing Saddles is a spoof of the scene between Gary Cooper and Marlene Dietrich's characters in Morocco.
When Boris the executioner attempts to hang a man who's sitting in a wheelchair, Hedley Lamarr refers to it as "the Dr. Gillespie case." At MGM in the late 1930's and early 1940's, they made a series of movies in which Lew Ayres played Dr. Kildare and his boss Dr. Gillespie was played by Lionel Barrymore. The character used a wheelchair because Barrymore's chronic arthritis had advanced so much the actor needed one in real life.
The movie's theme is spoofed, and the stagecoach end chase, when Bart tells of when his family met the Indians.
Madeline Kahn's infamous number "I'm Tired" is a direct parody - in subject, spirit, and staging - of Marlene Dietrich's performance of "The Laziest Gal In Town" in Alfred Hitchcock's Stage Fright (1950). The lyrics include the following: "Though I'm more than willing to learn / How these gals get money to burn / Every little proposition I turn it down / 'Way down / It's simply because I'm the laziest gal in town"

When Guybrush reads "Stinkbeard's Common Laws for Common Pirates" pirate code, he turns around and says, "Laws? Pirates don't need no stinkin' laws!", which is a spoof on the line, "We don't need no stinkin' badges"; which, in turn, is an adaptation of the line from the 1927 novel "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre"
In both films, a character punches an animal.
