Widower Steve Douglas raises three sons with the help of his father-in-law, and is later aided by the boys' great-uncle. An adopted son, a stepdaughter, wives, and another generation of sons join the loving family in later seasons.
Mister Ed is a horse who is owned by Wilbur Post. Mister Ed is not just any horse, he talks to Wilbur! But this gets Wilbur in all kinds of trouble because Mister Ed won't talk to anyone else, so Carol, Wilbur's wife, thinks that Wilbur loves Mister Ed more then he loves her, because he spends so much time with Mister Ed. Mister Ed also talks on the telephone and goes out of his barn to cause mischief, which Wilbur gets blamed for. Written by
The lyrics to the famous theme song ("A horse is a horse, of course, of course ...") played over the opening and closing credits were introduced in episode 8 of the first season. The first seven episodes used only an instrumental version of the song. See more »
I was a young child when the show was originally on the air and I was an avid watcher. I loved the show then and I love it even better now that it has been restored. The shows were first aired on the CBS television network and along with the Munsters and the Adams Family it was one show that I never missed. These shows allowed us to escape the reality of what was going on in our changing world and allowed us to laugh. I still watch the show and I am so grateful to cacle TV to allow my son to enjoy the same shows that I loved so much as a kid. THANKS!
