    Alan Young was born in England but raised in Vancouver BC, so there is a Pacific Northwest connection. He worked for the CBC in Vancouver and Toronto. Read more about Alan at Wikipedia. He passed away in June, 2016 at age 96!!! Working with a talking horse can be good for your health???

    The early 60’s pitch to BC advertisers shows Toronto-born actor Alan Young & “Mister Ed”. Deliberate or a coincidence?? Alan Young was well-known to Canadians from his long-time tenure on CBC network radio before Hollywood beckoned & “Mr Ed” enjoyed a short run on CBS. Profiling a show with a familiar Canadian would make sense. Saskatchewan born Art Linkletter, host of CBS’ “House party” would also be a choice for an ad sales pitch.

  2. TV Guide had an article on KVOS, because it was an American TV station with Canadian ads. Indeed, it’s most populous coverage was across the border. In Walla Walla, you could get KVOS over the cable when another station signed off. We also got a station out of Victoria on Cable.
