Mister Ed is Turning 50! TV's Top Animals Salute Him

by AOL TV Staff, posted Sep 29th 2011 12:00PM
Mister Ed'Mister Ed' paved the way for animals in the entertainment industry, breaking through the glass ceiling barn door by talking up TV viewers and being as charming as any leading man out there.

As the theme song said, "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!"

Yes, Ed was in his hay-day on TV for six glorious seasons, always easily bribed to tell a good story with a little peanut butter, making him a horse we can endorse. But he also gets the sniff of approval from his fellow four-legged friends in Hollywood.

As the 50th anniversary of 'Mister Ed''s big Oct. 1, 1961, network debut approaches, we gathered quotes from some of the biggest names in TV's animal kingdom to roast and pay tribute to the equine entertainer.

Check out our gallery for commentary provided by everyone from Flipper and Lassie to weed-smoking Wilfred and Annie's Boobs, the monkey from 'Community.'

That's one thing I dont understand why dont they show it anymore. It used to be on Nick at Night back when cable first came out... It would be nice if Antena TV show it. Much better then the bull **** that there showing now. Then play each of them 2 times a day like what's happening, or the ropers or like benny hill sometimes 5 shows in a row.... and these other really dumb shows like Maude and golden girls!

I love it that Mr. Ed is getting the recognition he is due 50 years after the show's premiere. This show was a classic. Mr. Ed was the best!

I hope I'm wrong and it's an urban legend or something, I heard years ago that when the show ended that he was put down. I would not know why, sure hope it's not true
