Nor Leslie Nielsen, but that was the whole point of his casting in Airplane! For Pryor to have played Bart I think it would have to have been written much differently.

And… are we really discussing how Blazing Saddles should have been better?!?

True, it’s like talking about a 9.9 vs. a 10. But as good as the ‘96 Bulls were, we can always speculate about how they could have been even better with Hakeem Olajuwon at center; or the ‘76 Reds with Nolan Ryan on the pitching staff.

I really think that “Excuse me while I whip this out” would have been even more hilarious, almost surreal and subversive, delivered by Pryor. He probably wrote the line, so who better to say it? And he certainly had chemistry with Gene Wilder, as later films would show.
