Ed was a handsome palomino gelding with a lot of personality, not to mention patience. Wilbur, the guy who put a roof over his head, gave him a lot of trouble. Ed was sort of a cynic in a way, but you know what they say: scratch a cynic and find a romantic. Ed had a big heart.

Mr. Ed had a lot of friends. He and Wilbur's wife had a sort of understanding. Ed had a grudging respect for her, and she felt the same way about him. They had to share Wilbur, but then they also shared getting Wilbur out of trouble. That cemented the bond.

Thing about Ed was, he really needed Wilbur. I mean, living in a garage with no other horses to pal around with, and no pasture to play in or trees to hang out under in the summer, he needed Wilber, especially since he was so easy to beat at chess. He also supplied a standing order of carrots, hay, sweet feed and nice, pure spring water. This is not to mention maid service, which a lot of people didn't know about.

On the whole, life was pretty good.

Mr. Ed was a TV series that ran from October 1, 1961 to September 4, 1966. For more information and photographs of Mr. Ed, click here.

The Lyrics

"Hello, I'm Mr. Ed"

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 Mister 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 am Mister Ed!"
