I bet Mel Brooks will be absolutely tickled to be the subject of this Final Jeopardy! as he’s been a huge fan of the show for a very long time. The 2000th episode of the original NBC network run of Jeopardy! had Mel Brooks appear, in character, as the 2000 Year Old Man! I can’t find it on YouTube today, but footage definitely exists.

Instead, here’s footage of a 2014 category:

The three films from AFI’s list? Blazing Saddles (#6), The Producers (#11), and Young Frankenstein (#13).

Here’s the full “100 Years 100 Laughs” list.
