Mr. Ed centers on architect Wilbur Post (Alan Young—Duck Tales), and his equine friend after whom the series was named. As the story goes, Mr. Ed was left behind in his barn when his former owner sold the barn and the rest of the farm on which he lives. When Wilbur and his wife Carol (Connie Hines) buy the property, they are surprised to learn that the property includes Mr. Ed. Wilbur and Mr. Ed end up forming a friendship that leads to quite a number of madcap adventures over the course of six seasons. Mr. Ed earned a Golden Globe in 1963 for Best Television Series (Comedy). More information on Mr. Ed: The Complete Series and other releases from Shout! Factory is available online at:
