Cat Out of the Bag Alert! This review contains spoilers for this episode!
Synopsis: After Mister Ed eats some apples from the neighbor’s yard, Wilbur (Alan Young) doesn’t believe it when Ed insists he didn’t also eat the man’s expensive fish.
Cat Cattle Call: The neighbor, Roger Addison (Larry Keating) gets so mad about the missing fish he refuses to talk to Wilbur until Mister Ed is sent away. Wilbur refuses to get rid of Mister Ed but also believes the horse is lying about eating the fish. But one night Roger is with his wife Kay (Edna Skinner) when they hear cats meowing in their back yard. When they run outside they find three cats poking around the fish pond.
The couple runs forward to scare the cats away, but the cats mostly look confused. They end up having to pick up two of the cats and move them aside.
A long-haired calico doesn’t seem to get the message and walks back into the shot before it cuts away.
Final Mewsings: Next thing you know they’ll accuse the cats of eating the apples!
