I saw on Amazon where you can purchase seasons or episodes. Not sure if that means you get the disc or if that means you buy the episode online?  But I would like to purchase the mr Ed episode with Clint and have it in DVD. Is that possible?  Just want that episode only without buying the entire season.

I can't imagine you'd be able to buy a single episode of Mr. Ed. Just watch it on youtube.

It's not a DVD, but you can buy the episode from Amazon for $1.99, and download it:

My parents bought a collection of Mr. Ed episodes that has the Clint episode on it. I don't think you'd be able to buy a DVD of just the one episode.

THIS is the set they have, which I think was released before they started releasing the full seasons of the show.

Thanks Christopher. Yeah I would love to have a set like your parents have. I actually like the show. And I watched the reruns as a kid. But I wouldn't want the entire series. But one set with all the best episodes in it along with Clints part would be cool. I read that Clint only appeared on the show as a favor to the producer of mr Ed. That same producer directed Clint in Francis in the navy.

Yes, Arthur Lubin. He was also the director of 131 of the 145 Mister Ed episodes. We discussed it here:

http://www.clinteastwood.org/forums/index.php?topic=1495.0

This episode dates from 1962, during the period when Eastwood was fairly well-known as one of the stars of Rawhide, but two years before he made the first of the Leone pictures that would propel him to international fame. This was the first outside assignment that CBS permitted its Rawhide costar to accept.

Arthur Lubin, an early Eastwood mentor from his Universal days, devised and directed the series about a talking horse (the title character), while Sonia Chernus, an old friend of Eastwood's and his future story editor at Malpaso, cowrote the episode, in which Eastwood does, indeed, play a featured role as what Richard Schickel calls "a bachelor version of himself": an aspiring TV actor trying to make a name for himself, newly moved into the suburb where the series' characters reside, with his horse, which is "a larger and more glamorous creature" than the eponymous Mr. Ed, resulting in jealousy and allegedly comical complications.

See Richard Schickel, Clint Eastwood (1996), p. 124-125.
