Pferd aufm Flur - Fuzzy Filme

"There's a horse in the hall" in a famous (very tacky) German carneval song by Klaus & Klaus (sic!).
Another line goes:
...wohl zu viele Fuzzyfilme gesehn, wa?...
(freely: ...you must've watched too many fuzzy flics, haven'tya?...)

"fuzzy flics"?!?

I just found out that "fuzzyfilme" refers to cowboy movies from the 1940s featuring a certain Al St. John as Fuzzy Q. Jones. Maybe (just like Bob Ross) he may exhibit what I called "the David Hasselhoff effect" as only on German amazon you can get the Fuzzy Western Collectors DVD Box.
