The Wonderful World of Wilbur Pope

So what’s the long face for? A gal and Triumph and a sunny paddock… what more could a gee-gee ask for?

Interesting Fact (not that we don’t have enough here!): Alan Young who played Wilbur was born Angus Young in North Shields, Northumberland not too far from where I hail from. His journey to stardom in Hollywood was via Edinburgh and Canada. Mister Ed was a Palomino called Bamboo Harvester ~ who didn’t come from North East England… (the photo is NOT Mister Ed…   OR Wilbur!)
