Film Friday: Mister Ed

Mister Ed 1Who remembers a silly TV series from the 1960s called Mister Ed? I thought a talking horse was hilarious when I was a kid and can still sing the theme song:

“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.”

Mister Ed 2While my tastes — and television — have matured, Mister Ed and his 60s sitcom live on in Youtube. That’s where I discovered an episode entitled My Horse, the Mailman, which features Mister Ed trying to emulate the heroic deeds of his ancestors, namely, delivering the mail.

“Hi Wllbur, got any mail for the Pony Express?”

Mister Ed 3We see Mister Ed pick up a letter, steal a mailbag and wear a mailman’s hat and whistle, all while talking to the long-suffering Wilbur in his deep, deep voice.

Whenever people pine for the lost golden age of television, ask them why and send them the link below.

Film Friday: Do you give My Horse, the Mailman your stamp of approval?

    I clicked on the link and watched the episode while sitting at a Starbucks with a silly grin on my face for most of the time. At the point of his encounter with the cop I actually burst out laughing.

      Yes, that was probably the best part, except for Mister Ed wearing oversized glasses.

    Sadly, the minute I saw the title of this entry, the Mr. Ed theme song took center stage in my brain. I’ll be humming it all day now!! I loved watching that ridiculous show or maybe it was just an excuse for my brothers and I to sing the song at the top of our lungs!
