1961: "Mr. Ed" made its TV debut

The Amazing "Mr. Ed" made its debut on this day in 1961.   It was first on syndication and then became a part of the CBS lineup in October 1961.

The plot was so silly that it was hilarious:  The misadventures of a wisecracking talking horse and his human owner!    

It ran for six seasons (1961 to 1965) and Allan Young played Wilbur Post, an amiable architect with a talking horse living in his backyard barn.

One of my favorite shows was when Mr. Ed went to Dodger Stadium.   

By the way, Mr. Young (or Wilbur as Mr. Ed called him) died in May 1996.

I love this show!   The entire series in now available for sale.    

P.S. We learned a few years that "Mr Ed" was actually Allan Lane:
