(Some sources say it went on air 2 days earlier)
Mr. Ed was played by a palomino horse whose real name was Bamboo Harvester. (Sadly, there are no descendants of Mr. Ed; he was gelded. His stable mate, and stunt double, Pumpkin, went on to star in “Green Acres.”
In researching more than just the air date, I was surprised to discover that “Mr. Ed” was based on a series of short stories by Walter R. Brooks, the first being “The Talking Horse,” published on September, 18, 1937. Further surprising me; Brooks also wrote the “Freddy the Pig” series of books which was a childhood favourite of both myself and my sister. If either series is still around (I haven’t looked.) I think both would be well worth purchasing for any kid who can read by him, or her, self. ”Mr. Ed” theme song.53 Seconds
Buenos Dias LOCOS!
I don’t get today’s strip. It is sort of funny, but I think I’m missing something. Oh well. Another sunny day here. Have a nice day everyone.
Good morning all!
I loved “Mr. Ed”! One of my favorite programs!
Beautiful day here, too. And will be for the foreseeable future! Woot Woot!
Wake up, sleepy heads! Where’s MARG today?That is fascinating to read about MR ED and his double. It is a pity he was gelded though. We could use more talking Mr. Ed horses.
Looks like we just crossed paths DRY. How is your day so far?We have Wi Fi at work now, so I am eating lunch before I go out again. I may have a nap before I go out, to rest my back. One thing we therapists have lots of is couches, lol. I’ll just find an empty room.
Hi JOHHNY! Having a good day?
I liked Mr. Ed too, DRY.
So now Shika can “goof off” once in awhile at work, like I do! LOL!
DRY, what’s the fun of going to work if you can’t goof off once in a while? As long as my clients don’t catch me. Might do them some good to see a therapist reading the comics though. :-D
Gosh, is it only 9:00 pm? It feels like midnight. I have had an exhausting day, but my counselling sessions this morning went really well. It makes me happy to make a difference in someone’s life. I hope I can keep it up.
Good for you GF! You care about your patients! That is wonderful!
And I know how you feel about the time! I have been tired all day long, and I know I slept well! Don’t know what is up with that! And with the sun setting earlier, it seems later than it is! But, I am trying to keep on a sleep schedule, so I am staying up until 10:30 or 11.
