El exilio and the talking ‘caballo’?

The great talking horse Mr. Ed died in 1979 at age 31. We grew up watching Mr. Ed, although more have probably seen it on reruns.   It was a great show and the theme music was super:

“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 Mr. 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 Mr. Ed. People yackety yak on the street and waste the 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 no one can talk to a horse, of course That is of course unless the horse is the famous Mr. Ed.”

The shows bring back a ton of memories, and watching my mother laugh at the idea of a talking horse. We expected a lot of surprises in the US, but a talking horse was not one of them.
