Perhaps best known as Wilbur Post, the "father" and keeper of Mister Ed. Thought it was worth noting his passing as he did, after all, own the only horse that I know
of who could speak! Mr. Young had a fine career and was working right up until this year.

RIP Alan Young, and say hello to Mister Ed for us (Bamboo Harvester)...

The show was before my time but I did watch it on my local TV station as part of their afternoon classic lineup when I was a kid. I loved Wilbur and Mr. Ed.

When the DVD came out I bought it and enjoy watching it from time to time.

RIP Alan/Wilbur
