  • Mr. Ed's Real Off-Screen Name

    Here's some facts of interest that you might enjoy. As all of you know Studebaker Corporation sponsored the "Mr. Ed" show in the early 1960s and we've talked of the show and its stars often. I did not know though that "Mr. Ed" the talking horse was named BAMBOO HARVESTER. He was an 11-year old Palomino when the show started. He was purchased by Filmways Studios for $1,500. He toured the country making personal appearances for 15 years after cancellation of the show and died peacefully in 1979 at the age of 33 years. Source: Cult TV by John Javna.

        Mr. Ed's last words: "Polish the Lark?"

        Ok now you: Who was the voice of "Mr. Ed" and what other animal character on 1960s TV did he lend his voice to?

                Google can be friend or foe. The voice of Mr. Ed was Rocky Lane who played various cowboy parts in the 1930s-1940s and was noted as being one of the voices of "Mr Slate" on the Flintstones.

                    An Avanti used in Mr. Ed ...or at least registered to Filmways Productions...is still around (I think it was driven by the wealthy neighbor of the Posts).

                    Does anyone know if any other cars used in the series are existant?

                    BTW: Mr. Ed's trainer/caregiver drove Ed to the studio daily in a trailer pulled by a Studebaker pickup.
