Trivia

He was briefly kicked off the air for jokingly asking young viewers to "go into your mommy's purse and send me the little green pieces of paper in it". He wound up receiving about $250 from his young fans. However, the story that Soupy allegedly sneaked a reference to the "F" word into an on-air joke is just a myth. See more »

His Show was Memorable
23 January 2009 | by (St. Louis Park, MN) – See all my reviews

When i was growing up in New Jersey, one of the first shows I remember was The Soupy Sales Show on Channel 5 in the afternoon. He was so talented and so funny and while I remember little about his show, I do remember he had several puppets including Pookie the Lion, who always said "Hey Bubbie!" and White Fang the dog who never spoke, just grunted. One memory that has stuck with me for many years is that my mom use to refer to him as "Soupy Salesman." His show will always be remembered for the many pies he threw or got in the face and that was so funny. I never saw the incident where he told his young viewers to send him "those little green pieces of paper" but i've read about it in a number of books. Sadly, most of his shows from the WNEW era (they also aired in syndication) were erased but the ones that still survive are treasures of a very talented man. Let's not forget that he also created the dance "The Mouse" that was also a record. The Soupy Sales Show brings back memories of the 60s.
