Yer funny, a great show. I haven't seen a ton of it, but it is one of my favorite shows. I liked all the characters, but Ed and Wilbur were my favorite. With a beautiful talking palomino horse as Ed, where could anything go wrong. Though lately i have been reading a fair amount of it and things didn't go all that smoothly: first of all they had to get the horse to talk, mustard is to messy so they resorted to a string in his mouth, and when ever Ed's trainer tugged the string lightly Ed was supposed to "talk" didn't always respond. But they still succeeded. Other than that the show was still a success and is now still remembered today.
One of the most successful of the numerous 1960's nonsensical sitcoms was this one about a talking horse. Ed belonged to Wilbur Post, a young architect who had decided to move out of the city to get a little closer to nature.
For years the main characters have remained in the story. Others came and went sometimes for short periods and sometimes for many episodes. They helped to make the story more exciting.
Some of the main characters were Gordon Kirkwood, Wilbur Post, Carol Post, Roger Addison, Kay Addison, Winnie Kirkwood and Mister Ed.
Each episode is a story on its own but it forms part of the whole story.
I love this show so much and have the first DVD boxed set. A girlfriend in college said she hated the show and I could never understand why, since it is so funny!
On the first volume is one of my favorite episodes where Ed gets an Abraham Lincoln complex and frees not only a caged bird meant as a gift for Kay, but a whole aviary. All of the birds wind up in Addison's house and drive him stark raving nuts. The other actor who comes after Addison's character leaves the set is hilarious too. Everyone thinks that Wilbur is nuts, but he isn't! And the fun thing is only Wilbur and Ed knowing about their hilarious and often devious conversations. I love Ed's dancing and singing, and occasional defiance toward Wilbur. Even though it's an old show, it still casts a magical spell over me. I'm not an animal lover, but I can imagine it's super precious to people who love animals and consider them part of the family.
Who would ever think that a comedy about a talking horse would hold up after all this time ... well it has.
I grew up watching repeats of Mister Ed, and absolutely adored the show. Surprisingly I still do! While some of it will seem abit silly and dated, it is still an all around highly entertaining show. Just keep in mind that this was originally a childrens series, so it may not appeal to some. But if you are looking for a wholesome, funny, and sweet show to watch with your kids, then Mister Ed is definitely it.
I was eleven years old the first time I saw Mister Ed on Nick-At-Nite, (or twelve or thirteen, somewhere in there, my memory's a tad bit foggy these days), and I immediately became a fan. Heck, I even turned the simple phrase "I don't think so, Wilbur" into a popular, (if I do say so myself), tagline at school. I remember once, I taped a marathon on Nick-at-Nite, from the first episode to the last, and over the course of the next few years, I actually wore that tape out. Ed surfed, Ed sang, Ed danced, Ed taught the Dodgers how to hit, and Ed flew an airplane...
Well, Ed tried to fly an airplane, anyway.
And, good times were had by all.
Yeah, I really loved that show as a kid, and, as I would come to find out, I still do! Lately, I been watching Mister Ed on TV Land in the mornings, (or, rather, taping it so I could watch it later, darn grown up stuff), and I was very happy to find that the humor still held up, and the entertainment was as good as ever. Yeah, it can be a tad silly sometimes, but, hey, that's all a part of that pure Classic TV goodness we all know and love!
There's a lot of good TV shows out there, but this Golden Palomino, well, he's a horse of a different color! If ever there was a show worth watching, then friends, Mister Ed is that show!
