Apparently the whole first season has just been released on DVD. The radio announcer thought that the series was really good, and enjoyed watching it with his son. Apparently, they used peanut butter to make the horse's mouth move.

Unfortunately, I'm sure it will be without the Studebaker commercials.

We have a local station that has been showing Mr. Ed shows for quite a while now. Includes the show Studebakers, but new commercials, durn it.

I bought that series of dvd's a couple years ago & was disapointed that the original commercials were missing unlike a couple of "Ozzie & Harriet" dvds that had Kodak commercials in it.

The peanut butter thing is apparently an urban legend started by Mr. Alan Young himself.

"It is often said the crew was able to get Mister Ed to move his mouth by applying peanut butter to his gums in order for him to try to remove it by moving his lips. However, Alan Young admitted in 2004 that he had started that story himself, and explaining the actual method used.[8] Young, in an interview 7 April 2007 on radio station 3AW, Melbourne, Australia, again admitted that a loose piece of Nylon was inserted under Mr. Ed's lip which the horse attempted to remove on his trainer's cue. Mr. Ed was so well trained that the insert would be ignored until the required cue."
