Trivia

During the kid's party they play the old folk song, now kids song "The Old Gray Mare" It's not known who actually wrote the "The Old Gray Mare". It's been attributed to Steven Foster or Frank Panella. But it can really be confirmed who wrote the tune. But there actually was an "Old Gray Mare". A gray horse named Lady Suffolk in the 1840's is thought to be the inspiration for the song. But that inspiration had to come from her time after her racing career. She could run with a sulky or under a saddle. She won 89 of her 162 races. And she finished second 56 times. She also set what was then the world record. She was the first trotter to finish the mile in under two minutes thirty seconds with a rider. She raced sixteen seasons until she died in 1855 at 22 years of age. See more »

Quotes

Wilbur Post: You insist on continuing this strike?
Mister Ed: You insist on wearing that horse outfit?
Wilbur Post: Yes!
[after a long pause]
Mister Ed: I am willing to submit this to the labor relations board.
Wilbur Post: Well, I am not. And there's only one way to handle a disobedient horse like you. I'm sending you to an animal training school!
Mister Ed: Fine! Do with me what you want, Wilbur. Just remember this. If I fall, there will be another horse to pick up the torch and carry on the fight for the preservation of horsely dignity. I thank you.
