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 »

Terrific guy, and a part of our youth...now on DVD!

No sour grapes from Wisconsin, on this fellow.

Soupy was a part of our growing up. Take away the pie throwing for a minute... there was some great, clean comedy... jokes that have lasted for generations.

And, even through the What's My Line era, he kept us entertained as well.

Try to take a static set with a door, window and table, and try to make something out of it... maybe Ralph Kramden did it... but Soupy excelled!

I think, just like Captain Kangaroo, Romper Room, The Mickey Mouse Club, this was part of our life. To ignore it, is a shame.
