Alan Young obituary

Actor who starred alongside Mister Ed, the talking horse, in the TV sitcom

To be remembered principally for playing straight man to a talking horse may not seem the greatest of show-business legacies, but it was one that Alan Young, who has died aged 96, was very happy to live with. For five years, between 1961 and 1966, Young starred in the extremely popular television sitcom Mister Ed opposite the titular horse. Part of the jaunty opening jingle ran: “A horse is a horse, of course, of course / And no one can talk to a horse of course / That is, of course, unless the horse is the famous Mister Ed.”

The programme’s unvarying format was established in the first episode, in which an absent-minded architect, Wilbur Post (Young), and his wife, Carol (Connie Hines), buy a home in the country. The previous tenants have left their horse behind. Carol wants to get rid of it, »

Alan Young, ‘Mister Ed’ Star, Dies at 96

20 May 2016 2:51 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Alan Young, who gamely played straight man to a talking horse for five years in classic sitcom “Mr. Ed,” died Thursday at the Motion Picture and Television Home in Woodland Hills, Calif. He was 96.

On the series, which ran from 1961-66 on CBS, Young played architect Wilbur Post, who was married to Carol (played by Connie Hines, who died in 2009) and kept a horse, Mr. Ed, in their suburban stable. Mr. Ed, voiced by Allan “Rocky” Lane, would speak only to Wilbur, but given Mr. Ed’s rather outlandish personality and the superbly mild affect of Young’s Wilbur, just who owned whom could occasionally be a matter of debate.

Young also voiced Scrooge McDuck and numerous other animated characters, as well as guesting on dozens of TV shows.

In 2005 “Mr. Ed” won a TV Land Award for most heart-warming pet-owner interaction. Young also directed four episodes of “Mr. Ed. »
