The Wife was Jealous of the Horse


Carol always became petty and selfish when it came to Wilbur paying attention to Ed. Even when Ed was sick, she griped and snarled at Wilbur. But I guess that was the balance that made the show a hit.

I felt that because she didn't know Mister Ed could talk, she didn't understand why Wilbur was so connected to his horse.

Yeah, a bit of a plot twist. It's generally not women who are jealous of horses.

If I had a wife that looked like Carol Post, I'd be spending much more time in the house than in the barn - talking horse or not. :)
