GREAT show!!! - suitable for children and adults alike, 2 October 2006
Author: Josephine Bonett from Australia

G'day

As a young girl, I used to see Mister Ed on free to air TV. Then as an adult, I saw the repeats and realised it was a fabulous show for all ages with it's excellent humour. Actually the humour would be more appreciated by mature people than very young children. Very clever scripts with witty dialogue.

I love horses but I'm sure Mister Ed wouldbe enjoyed by non-horsey people just as much as horse lovers. I would recommend the Mister Ed series to any age group. You grown ups out there, if you haven't watch any Mister Ed episodes, please do as it's definitely not just a show for children. Honestly!

Three examples of the humour:

(1) Kaye (with Roger behind her) runs in to tell Carol "Get your laundry, Roger is taking us to the cleaners". Carol says "That's nice of you Roger". Roger replies "That's the least I can do, she is always taking me to the cleaners".

(2) Mr Ed is listening in on the extension phone and Wilbur catches him and hangs up the phone, saying "That's the last time I'm telling you not to ears-drop". Mr Ed replies "Good, because I'm sick of hearing it".

(3) A new neighbour (who has been upset by Mr Ed but naturally he thinks it's Wilbur causing the problem) knocks on Wilbur's door. When Wilbour answers (Roger happens to be with him), the neighbour says with his fist ready to punch Wilbur "Do you want a punch". Roger says "The things they sell these days from door to door".

You will not be disappointed if you buy the Mister Ed DVDs.

(NOTE: I haven't made any spelling errors - we Australians spell some words different to how the USA spell them! Cheers from Josephine from Down Under.
