Wilbur Post

Character

Wilbur Post is Mister Ed's owner in the show. He is a genial but somewhat klutzy architect, played by Alan Young. Many of the program's gags follow from Mister Ed's tendency to talk only to Wilbur, his skills as a troublemaker, and his precociously human-like behaviour that far exceeds anything those around Wilbur expect of a horse. A running gag is other characters hearing Wilbur talking to Ed and asking to whom he is talking.
