Mules

Francis  - Talking mule featured in the film Francis (1950) starring Donald O'Connor as an Army private who befriended a cantankerous, old Army mule that miraculously started talking.

Francis the Talking Mule with Donald O'Connor

Francis (voice of Chill Wills) appeared in six sequels films, including Francis Goes to the Races (1951); Francis Goes to West Point (1952); Francis Covers the Big Town (1953); Francis Joins the WACS (1954); Francis in the Navy (1955);  Francis in the Haunted House (1956).

The concept of a talking mule was the inspiration of MISTER ED/CBS/1961-66, a series about a talking horse (voice of Allan "Rocky" Lane) who lived with architect Wilbur Post. See also- HORSES: "Mr. Ed"
