Mongo Punching Horse Turns Fifty!

 January 2, 2024

   Well, it's hard to believe but it's been fifty years since Mongo rode in to town.

   And, perhaps you have forgotten that Mongo was played by Pro Football Hall of Famer, and defensive tackle for the Detroit Lions, Alex Karras.

   And, if you'll remember, in that same flick, some cowboys ate too many beans around a campfire.

"Beans, beans, the musical fruit. The more you eat, the more you toot."

—Old Vaquero Refrain

   Yes, get ready for some rootin' TOOTIN' fun, when True West magazine does a special tribute to the Mel Brooks classic movie that almost destroyed the Western.

   Personally, I'd like to see an entire movie with Mongo as the main character.

"Excuse me, while I whip this out."
