A Scarce Highly sought after TV comic from the 1960’s Sitcom.
From Crazy Ed’s personal Collection.
Two fun (on-line episode) summaries are great examples of Mister Ed’s comedic interactions with humans:
- Not-So-Imaginary Friend: Ed is shown to be able and willing to talk to other people, but will only do so in situations where the other party doesn’t know they’re talking to a horse (behind their backs, over a phone, etc).
- There were at least two instances where Ed talked to kids, who knew a horse was talking to them. In the first instance, Ed tells Wilbur he was talking in front of a kid because adults don’t believe children.
- Obfuscating Insanity: Ed really can talk, but Wilbur can’t prove it, and the entire neighborhood thinks he’s nuts, including Carol. It’s Ed’s idea to pretend Wilbur was acted insane in order to get a better deal on the house.
