Saturday morning comedy for all ages brought to you by comic Soupy Sales and his friends Black Tooth, White Fang and Pookie. Largely one-set production relied heavily on cuts to old film clips and a certain amount of slapstick, as well as amusing improvisation. Written by

Did You Know?
During the show Soupy would often answer knocks at the door. He would then talk to various characters not visible to the camera. One time he opened the door and, as a joke, the crew had sneaked in an exotic dancer who proceeded to disrobe to "stripper" music. Soupy was practically speechless and could not say anything on the air. Although it was obviously not shown on the air at the time, a camera backstage was taping it, and several years later it was shown (appropriate parts blacked out, of course) on TV. The entire "routine", with nothing blacked out, is available on a variety of "blooper" collection tapes. See more
