The lyrics of the woodpecker jingle sung at the bank go: "Oh!, you'll save money! Knock on wood! When you do what a good woodpecker should! Save for a horse or a brand new ranch, when you flock to the Glenboro Savings Branch! You can feather your nest with frills! Fill your garage with Coup de Villes! Just relax if you have a big bill! What you can do...be a smart bird too! Yout little pecker, you!" See more »

Many people considers Silver Streak as the best Pryor-Wilder movie. I don't think so. Silver Streak is Gene Wilder's movie, Richard Pryor didn't get much of the show. In Stir Crazy both of them get equally of the show. Both of them were very funny, though (as I noticed) they were a little different from nowadays comedians, maybe that was even better. I think at that time comedy makers knew what they are doing, because all of the jokes worked, not like in most of the nowadays comedies. My favorite scene was where Gene Wilder's and Richard Pryor's characters where pretending that they are bad, you won't see such a funny stuff in nowadays movies.
