Mr. Ed the Talking Horse


Nothing much to talk about today.  I don't want to talk about work.  One of my favorite TV series in the early 1960s was Mr. Ed.  Karen and Lee like it too.  I save 12 episodes from one tape from TV Land.  Here is the theme.  I bolded one line of the theme that I think is relevant.

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.

Go right to the source and ask the horse
He’ll give you the answer that you’ll endorse.
He’s always on a steady course.
Talk to Mister Ed.

People yakkity yak a streak and waste your time of day
But Mr. Ed will never speak unless he has something to say

A horse is a horse, of course, of course,
And this one’ll talk ‘til his voice is hoarse.
You never heard of a talking horse?

Well listen to this: "I'm Mister Ed."

Was never a big fan of this show. I liked Bewitched and Batman as a youngster regarding classic comedy shows. Just my two cents.

When Alan Young was on WABC's Saturday Night Oldies back in May 2007 (his autobiography "Mister Ed and Me and More" was being released) he revealed that a string was pulled which gave Mr. Ed the gift of gab (not sticky peanut butter as first believed). Still Alan, 88, is still as spry, and Young, as ever.

And speaking of a horse, of course, kids today, in addition to watching Ed on DVD, have board games, Horse-ology and Pony-ology. (At least that's the talk of the town)

So, with "Get Smart"
(Steve Carrell as Agent 86) coming to the Big Screen in June,
would we welcome a "Mr Ed" movie for those who've never heard of a talking horse?
