    Trivia challenge: 

    I don't know the answer, so this is both a query on my part, and a trivia challenge for those old enough to know...LOL

    WHO did the voice for "Mr. Ed?"

      Apparently the voice was that Allan "Rocky" Lane who was a former cowboy star...

        Fantastic forum! Just sad that I will not be able to participate and to both of you, DzyMsLizzy, bluesradio . . .Ashland and Angel have started packing again for another dangerous mission.
        I should not leak this out, but reliable sources told me that it has a lot to do with Santo Domingo and some mysterious "creature" that is causing villagers a bit of trouble. It is named, "Fire Lizard." Oops!

    Western actor, Allen Lane, made over 100 movies.  I loved him as the voice of Mr. Ed.  The jingle
    "A horse is a horse, of course, of course,
    And no one can talk to a horse of course
    That is, of course, unless the horse is the famous Mister Ed.

    Go right to the source and ask the horse
    He'll give you the answer that you'll endorse.
    He's always on a steady course."...was sung by Jay Livingston who co-wrote the song with Ray Evans.

      @ vocalcoach smile Do you think that my singing talent could propel me to hit the "big time?" I mean, if you help me and I do go far, would you let me pay you for coaching me??

        I'd insist on it Kenneth!  smile  I'd also insist on 50% of your earnings just like Colonel Parker did with Elvis Presley - not only was Parker a greedy scum bag, he was never a Colonel!  (I'm not either:))

        I wonder if the idea for Mr. Ed was spawned by a much earlier show, Francis the Talking Mule?
        It mostly (I believe) took place at an army camp, and the mule, like Mr. Ed, only spoke to one person, and also never when anyone else was around.  So of course, everyone thought that private was batshit crazy.  LOL
