The role of Mr. Ed was first played by a chestnut gelding, although the episode he appeared in was never aired. He was too difficult, and so was replaced by Bamboo Harvester and the horse played the role throughout the series, although in the credits he was listed as “Himself.” They claimed that they got Mr. Ed to talk by putting peanut butter on the horse’s gums, but the truth was more interesting: he “talked” on cue when the trainer touched his hoof. He apparently was a very smart horse.
