The ranking is as follows:
Blazing Saddles
Spaceballs
History of the World Part I
Young Frankenstein
High Anxiety
The Producers
Silent Movie
Robin Hood Men in Tights

I’ve never seen any of the others and I’ve only seen Producers and High Anxiety once, so it’s possible I would rank those higher on second viewing.

Blazing Saddles with The Producers as second.
Life...life...I know it's got its ups and downs.

In the someday, what's that sound.

My order:

1 Blazing Saddles
2 Young Frankenstein
3 Spaceballs
4 History of the World part 1
5 High Anxiety

6 The Producers
7 Silent Movie
8 Robin Hood Men in Tights
9 Dracula: Dead and Loving It

I've never seen 12 Chairs and my bottom 4 I've only seen once each a long time ago -- so they might need a rewatch.

I’m watching Silent Movie now from the Mel Brooks BR boxset. I haven’t seen it since forever. It’s funny but it takes concentration. They say stuff on camera that is not what’s on the dialog cards and that’s part of what’s so funny about it. You read their lips and they say one thing and then the card says another.

One example

Lip read “you stupid son of a bitch!”

Card reads “you bad boy!”

It also has Marty Feldman. So NOT CRAP. Waffles for homophobic jokes.

Got through High Anxiety tonight. It’s clever but a slog. Hadn’t seen it in many years. Probably the last time was on VHS. Not his best film.

I got the blu ray box set for about $20. It’s only missing Producerrs, Dracula and Life Stinks.

I tried watching Men In Tights tonight but couldn’t make it more than 20 minutes. It’s fucking awful.

I watched that one a few years ago on Netflix. There’s maybe 10-20 good jokes in there but really not worth sitting through the whole thing.

Uncle Mel! America's sweetheart.

Blazing Saddles
Young Frankenstein
Spaceballs
History of the World, Pt 1
The Producers
Robin Hood Men In Tights
Silent Movie
To Be Or Not To Be
High Anxiety
Twelve Chairs

Those top 3 are damn near even. Biggest jump in quality is to Men In Tights, which I loved as a little kid but it'd probably seem ridiculously juvenile now.
Kerouacian as fuck.
