Mister Ed and Alan Young With apologies to Trigger, TV's most famous horse is probably MISTER ED. The title star of a 1960s sitcom, Ed was a talking horse who brought endless grief to his owner, Wilbur Post. Wilbur wasn't really "highly effective," but the part became the signature role for actor ALAN YOUNG. Absurd as the show was, Mister Ed became one of the biggest hits of the 1960s and spawned a well-known theme song beginning "A horse is a horse, of course, of course..."
