Here's a scene from an episode of 'Community'. Pay attention to what elderly college student Leonard says....

"Where the white women at?" is of the many great lines from the Mel Brooks' classic comedy Western, "Blazing Saddles".

About a year or so after the movie came out, a pilot was produced and broadcast for a TV sitcom about the Black Bart character, and for some strange reason it was called... 'Black Bart'.

Within the TV Universe, that pilot became historical reality. The "Blazing Saddles" movie was then the cinematic recreation of the events in the life of that historical figure, Black Bart.

So in the real world, Cleavon Little came first as Black Bart in the movie, followed by Lou Gossett in the TV pilot. But in Toobworld, that's reversed.  Gossett's version was the "actual" cowboy, while Little was just a portrayal.......
