Trivia

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 »

Great early television
28 March 2002 | by (West Chester, Pa) – See all my reviews

If you were a kid in the 60s it didn't get any better than "The Soupy Sales Show", an improvisational-type comedy show for children that worked on several levels. Soupy appeared with puppet friends Pookie, White Fang and Black Tooth, but it weren't no Shari Lewis show. As best I can recall, show was single-set with a back door that Soupy often opened, only to be greeted by anything from a speeding locomotive to a pie in the face. Legend has it that joking request to kid viewers to open dad's wallet and send in pictures of the presidents led to untimely cancellation. As Black Tooth might say "Ruh Uh Ruh Uh". Watch it if it's ever shown again, it's classic early television.
