Every heard of a talking horse? Well,listen to this........
24 September 2003 | by (Chapel Hill,North Carolina) – See all my reviews

This may have been one of the silliest shows of all time,but he spoke to a generation gap that continues to this day some 37 years after he went off the air,into syndication and this time around has found a new home with a new generation of people who can enjoy him today.........

The story goes like this:Married couple Wilbur and Carol Post buys a new home in the country and discovers a stall in the back yard with a lame horse named Mister Ed. However,the neighbors,The Addison's tells them that the horse was left behind by its previous owners,but this horse isn't like any other. You see,Mister Ed is owned by Wilbur Post,and when no one else is around he talks to Wilbur and does amazing things as well,but always manages to get Wilbur in trouble.

Mister Ed was one of the silliest shows of its day,but this show wasn't aimed at adults either. However,this show was aimed toward its targeted audience:CHILDREN since this show was designed for the kiddies,but the adults were watching it too. Based on the popular children's books by Walter Brooks,this show had it all even at times when Mister Ed always frustrate Wilbur to no end was fun to watch and getting into all sorts of mischief. It was crazy at times,but like the previous comment was made about this show may question the sanity of the TV executive who greenlighted this series about a talking horse was at the time just plain silly,since the executive producer of this series was no other than Al Simon,whom was behind the shows "The Beverly Hillbillies", "Green Acres","Petticoat Junction","The Addams Family",and so forth.

The show was very keen in having great guest stars on it as well including on episode where Clint Eastwood was out of character during a segment which was very silly,but to see Clint in a comedical role was to be seen,and the other was with two of the stars of "The Beverly Hillbillies",actors Max Baer and Irene Ryan was hilariously funny. The others were Jonathan Harris,Jon Provost,and many others. As for the stars of the show,only actors Alan Young and Connie Hines remained throughout the series' entire run which ended in the spring of 1966 after 143 episodes(including the lost episodes too which were in color during the show's final season). However,the show had some moments as well with the changing of actors whom played the Addison's(Larry Keating and Edna Skinner,however,Keating passed away on the set after the second season in 1963 from failing health),and the Post's new neighbors,the Kirkwood's(played by Leon Ames and Florence MacMichael) whom at times had to put up with some of the silliness the went on within the Post's residence,especially when Wilbur's wife Carol wasn't around.

These days,Nick-At-Nite's sister station TV Land has brilliantly restored these episodes to show to a new generation of individuals whom never got the chance to catch this seldom seen series,until now. Worth seeing.

THE THEME SONG: A Horse is a horse,of course of course and nobody can talk to a horse of course,that is the horse,unless of course is the famous Mister Ed.... Go right to the source,,and asked the horse,and this one will you endorse he is always on a steady course,talk to Mister Ed........

Thank you TV Land!!!
