Storyline

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, for which Wilbur gets blamed. Written by Katie <Katie185@aol.com>

Totally Awesome!!!
8 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

Being only 20, this show was before my time, but when my Nana and I started watching it, it struck a cord...

I'm used to the shows of today using crude and perverted "humor" as they call it and lame plots. but Mister Ed was different, the humor was actually funny and they always found something different to do and make it look practical and not always so outlandish. I sincerely believe that there was not a better man to play "Wilbur Post" than Alan Young, who had the mild manner attitude and "boyish" look to him that completed and made that character believeable. Allan Lane's voice was just perfect for the horse known as "Ed" (but who's real name was "Bamboo Harvester" or "Pumpkin" who was used for certain pictures and promotionals for the show)

This show is timeless and a classic and I am so glad to see it brought back on to television, though many of it's characters are with the LORD now: Larry Keating and Edna Skinner (The Addisons), Leon Ames (Col. Gordon Kirkwood), Allan Lane, Bamboo Harvester, Pumpkin (Ed's voice, the horse in the show, and the promotional Ed), but also happy to see that Alan Young and Connie Hines are still here!

If ever there was a show worth watching, this is IT...
