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 »

I met Soupy in the late 80s
19 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You couldn't have asked to meet a nicer person, we went to see one of his shows at the bottom line in NYC's village, when the show was over, he came out a spoke with his fans, I was first in line, we stood side by side and spoke like two old friends, he didn't try to give me the bum's rush away from him. My cousin had Polaroid camera, but when it came time to get my picture taken with soupy, the damn camera wouldn't work, so Soupy ad-libbed, how about a quick charcoal sketch? Sure his old shows had corny jokes and routines, but he was funny and every other word didn't have to be blocked out, ala Chris rock, whose only claim to fame is the word 'F**k I asked him about the episode that resulted in him being suspended, he said he received mostly Monopoly money and 2 bucks from a woman who said he should stay in Puerto Rico. I guess everyone has different tastes in comedy, but i like mine clean and sober, like Bob Newhart, etc. To the person that was born in 62, you missed a classic show, I only hope you grow up and give Soupy a chance, who knows, you may find yourself chuckling. He was playing to the crew as much as his audience.
