"Henry Horseworth Longfellow": The Poetry of Mister Ed (Season 2, Episode 23)

Note: In this episode—"The Beachcomber," aired on April 1, 1962—Mister Ed feels rejected, "real down, and beat," and runs away from home to join an artist colony full of beatniks. There are three poems for your viewing and listening pleasure: the first is at 10:25 in Part One (a poem by a beatnik about rejection); the second is at 1:25 in Part Two (Mr. Ed's poem about rejection); and the third is at 11:25 in Part Two (Mr. Ed's poem about how good his life is). Happy viewing!
