I was reading some entries on the Snopes pages and they claim that Mr. Ed was a zebra and that this worked because no one could tell the difference with black & white TVs. (original article at http://www.snopes.com/lost/mred.htm ) All reference materials on zebras I’ve seen state that they have alternating white and black/brown stripes, hardly something that would be concealed by a black and white picture (unless the contrast is turned down real low). Nothing else online even mentions the possibility of Mr. Ed being a zebra. Is this story true???
P.S.- I wrote Snopes asking if this was correct- they never responded.
