Who didn't love watching Alan Young act as Wilbur in the 1960s TV cult classic 'Mr Ed'.

The show was centred around a golden palomino horse that would only speak to his owner - Wilbur. 

As well as his role in Mister Ed, Young also was a well-known actor and comedian, later becoming a voice over artist for shows such as Ducktales (voicing Scrooge McDuck for 65 episodes).
