Mister Ed the talking horse
Comments and Info from:
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.
