"It worked in Blazing Saddles!" was one of three phrases used by the Tirades hosts to describe how an unexplainable event that occurs in the Tiradesverse happened. (The others being Fireball and Orbital wobble.) There was no real explanation given. All that was said was "It worked in Blazing Saddles!" and the episode continued.

It was officially retired in Episode 21, when the Transformers killed Blazing Saddles along with half the population of New Santroitcagobergville during a careless robot fight.
