    Re: RIP Soupy Sales 1926-2009

    I used to love watching his late 70s/early 80s(?) show on KTLA. His encounters with Pookie were as drop-dead funny as Triumph the Insult Comic Dog are today.

    Thanks, Soupy, for all the laughs! Knock 'em dead upstairs!

    As I recall, there were more than just "a couple dollars" involved. It was quite the embarrassment for all concerned.

To see his reactions and try to keep it together for the audience was too funny.
    I had totally forgotten about that. PRICELESS!:lol:

    RIP, Soupy... You were one of a kind and will be missed.

    As Snopes.com says, he was merely cutting out the middle man!

    Soupy was great! I remember that he used to host a kid's show, locally in the Los Angeles area, and it was sponsored by Bob's Big Boy restaurants.

    In an era before McDonalds and the rest took over, the "Big Boy" hamburger was really a big deal, and a treat!

    Rest In Peace, Soupy.

    I thought he had died several years ago.

    Well I guess this time it's for real. How sad.

    Howard Stern was on vacation and they played a lot of old tapes where Soupy was there. They worked on the same radio station and had some very funny encounters. Sad.

    RIP Soupy Sales 1926-2009

    Soupy passed away this evening at the age of 83 in New York. I absolutely loved his show and watched it every day. White Fang, Black Tooth, Pookie, Peaches, it was all so funny. He was the king of the pie in the face.

    You can read about him here.
