Mister Ed the Talking Horse - Straight from the Horse's Mouth


Well, Golden Records kind of tricked me on this one. Looking at the cover, you would think this record would be hosted by Alan Young as Wilbur Post and Allan "Rocky" Lane as Mister Ed. But it turns out there's no Wilbur Post in it at all, and it sounds to me like Mister Ed is being voiced by Thurl Ravenscroft here. If it's not Thurl, it sounds like the same guy that I thought was Thurl on "Songs to Tickle Your Funny Bone" that I posted earlier. Thurl or No Thurl: YOU decide!

Anyway, this is a collection of songs and facts by this fake Mister Ed. It's still cute though, and I hope you like it!

Here's the track list:
  1. Mister Ed Theme
  2. Straight From the Horse's Mouth
  3. Birds of a Feather
  4. "How" Song
  5. There's a Million Kinds of Animals
  6. There's a Hat for Every Occasion
  7. The Historic Force, the Horse
  8. It Takes Five Senses
  9. Sounds Like a Sound
  10. Why?
  11. The Sea
  12. The Weather Song
  13. Out in Outer Space

Sheldon Allman wrote some of the Mr. Ed songs and has a pretty deep voice, so I thought that it might be him, but after listening decided that it was not. Here is some info about Sheldon, Mr. Ed, and who might be singing on the record.
