“Hello, Wilbur!” I remember watching “Mister Ed” as as kid and being amazed at the fact that horse was moving it lips. Of course, of course this is before the whole peanut butter reveal for me. This show is still one of my all-time favorite sitcoms. This is a true television classic and still holds up today to be very funny. Be honest and tell me that you can hear this theme song and continue to whistle it the rest of the day! “Mister Ed: The Complete Series” delivers us all six seasons of the show within its 143 episodes. If you are a fan of this series, this is the set to get…and just in time for the holidays.
Official Premise: Architect Wilbur Post (Alan Young, Duck Tales) and his wife Carol (Connie Hines) have settled into a beautiful new home, complete with a barn in the backyard…and a very unique tenant. Wilbur finds that the former owner has left his horse behind. He soon discovers that this is no ordinary horse, as the eloquent Mr. Ed can talk, but only to Wilbur! The anxious architect and the pontificating palomino soon become the best of friends, leading to all sorts of comedic misadventures.
