Actor Alan Young, the then-Wilbur Post of CBS-TV’s Mr. Ed, fills in as one of Santa’s Helpers in this unbelievably corny publicity shot.

Leonard Maltin and I agree–we both love this type of Hollywood art that is almost lost in our more ‘sophisticated’ society. Believe it or not, newspapers and magazines at the time gobbled these stills up by the carload. SMEF will be featuring a few more of these shots as we count down to the Holidays.

Young starred on the comedy series, which ran for an unbelievable six seasons! The Canadian actor had been a big star in radio and films before taking on the boob tube. He later gained fame as the voice of Scrooge McDuck in an animated series featuring the miserly old duck’s adventures.
