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.
Talk to Mister Ed.

People yakkity-yak a streak and waste your time of day
But Mr. Ed will never speak unless he has something to say.

A horse is a horse, of course, of course,
And this one'll talk 'til his voice is hoarse.
You never heard of a talking horse?

Well listen to this: "I'm Mister Ed".

Moving around like the Pop It crew is the way to the perfect dance for you!
Some primates live in trees and some live on the land and in trees. In this episode we meet KINDERZOO's finest primates like our host Gabby the Gibbon, Deni the Douc Langur, Marty the Mandrill, Colin the Colobus Monkey and Mike the Proboscis Monkey. We also learn how Mike got his large nose in Kinderzoo Tales.
In this episode we go on safari in Africa and meet Polly the Springbok Antelope, Harry the Hippopotamus, Rhiannon the Rhinoceros and we see two of our favourites running around - Debra the Forgetful Zebra and Ryan the Lion. Our KInderzoo Tale this week is about how Gerry the Giraffe got his long neck.

Wilbur Post (played by Alan Young), was an architect who had his office in the same barn that stabled. Mr. Ed. Mr. Ed was voiced by Allan Lane, a country western star.

The song was written by songwriters Jay Livingston and Ray Evans and sung by Jay Livingston. The song was taken after a theme from EmileWaldterfel, a German Romantic era composer.

For the very first six episodes of the show only an instrumental version of the song was used, but when a professional singer could not be found, Livingston decided to sing the lyrics himself.

The theme song, "Horse is a Horse,' continues to remain popular among young children, especially girls, who dream of someday owning their own pony or horse.
