Mr. Ed Fan Club: Does anyone have any information about a Mr. Ed Fan Club? My daughter paid for membership (to a James (Big Bucks) Barnett, I believe...in or near Dallas, TX). After receiving a few pictures and newsletters (called The Talking Horse), it disappeared. Neat items could then be ordered thru Thirteen Records in Dallas (i.e., there was a bumper sticker...we purchased several and with each new vehicle she cuts off the top line and has "Mr. Ed for President" as a bumper sticker.) Supposedly, Alan Young was a member. If anyone knows anything about it, I'd really appreciate a reply; I would then "dig" into my Texas diary to be absolutely sure of names referred to above, etc. This was probably about 8 years ago.

Mister ED Fan Club presented "Edstock" music festival - 1st national convention at the Bronco Bowl in Dallas, Texas July 7, 1984 preformers were:
Joe Ely, T-Bone Burnett, Tiny Tim and the Gloomchasers, The Optimystics, and others plus a guest appearance by Mister ED TV star Alan Young.
There were said to be 500 "ED Heads" members in the fan club.
It was started in 1976 by
James (Big Bucks) Burnett
of Glen Heights, Texas.
The newsletters were called
"The Horses Mouth",
and a special addition called
"The Inside Poop".

There was another Mister ED hand puppet that did not talk by the Knickerbocker toy company made in 1962. It has a cloth body of red and blue and plastic head. It fits your hand like a snug glove.

When Nickelodeon reran the Mr. Ed show, they made limited edition promo items including a Mister ED (empty) "glue bottle" and a Mister ED "feed bag" tote bag with logo photo.
There was a place called Jungleland animal park in Thousand Oaks, California. It had trained animals for TV, movie, and commercials. They had live shows for the visitors. I visited the park to watch the famous lady tiger tamer/trainer perform back in that era. Jungleland movie TV animals including the Grevy's zebras that where used in some episodes of Mister Ed.

Why do people think
Mister ED was a zebra?

Answer : Ed ran away from home in one episode and leaned up to the newly black painted bars at the zoo and pretrended to be a zebra. The zoo keepers put him with the other zebras.
