Question How did they get Mister Ed to talk?

That's something I've always wondered and never could find out.

He was one pretty horse though.

This thread has an explanation of 2 ways - one being peanut butter and the other using nylon string.

It may have been a use of both I suspect.

I don't believe the peanut butter thing at all. I mean, why would he have moved his mouth right on cue?? Besides, you can even see a string in some episodes...

I read a report where Allan Young told how it was done. Before a scene, Mr. Ed's trainer, Les Hylton, used a substance that looked like Peanut Butter and put a wad of it between Mr. Ed's cheek and gums. Though the substance was harmless, Mr. Ed got rid of it by working his lips. While he was moving his lips to get rid of the peanut butter looking substance, the voice of Mr. Ed, Rocky Lane ,did the dialogue. To get him to stop moving his lips, a riding crop was placed against his fore leg and that was the signal for Mr. Ed to keep his mouth closed.

I have been watching the show. I get a few laughs.
Saw it years ago and it was funny then. I don't think the public
would buy it today. The gimmick shows are out. There was a
ton of gimmick shows in the 60's.
