Default R.I.P Soupy Sales

Sad to see Soupy go. The final pie in the face.
Good silly fun.

I was a big fan when I was a youngster.

And Kay.

Soupy apparently got into trouble one time when he asked one of them to deliver a message to Kay.

He started with "iF u see K ...."

Then there was the thing about telling the kids in the audience to "send all that green stuff in mommy's wallet to Soupy" that got him kicked off the air .

There's also a video on youtube showing Clifford Brown playing trumpet on a nighttime Soupy Sales show in 1955. It is here. There was another one where he is interviewing Clifford Brown after the song he plays, but that one's been removed for some reason. According to one of the commenters of that video, he had Charlie Parker on his show too.

You can't be that old, White Fang was written before the transistor was invented!

We didn't have Soupy in the Midwest -- instead of throwing pies in OH they threw kielbassa and pierogies, or made fun of your lawn ornaments.

I thought Soupy got his TV start in Ohio.

Yeah, just looked that up -- he got kicked off the air in 1953 -- the only thing I remember from that era is the test pattern.

Ohio has such great luck with talent -- the starting pitchers for the Yanks and Phils were let go by the Indians 2 years ago.

Rockefeller started Standard Oil in Ohio...

We had Soupy in Milwaukee as well as kielbassa and pierogies. I remember "The Ghoul" making fun of Parma and the "silver ball busters".

There was a Ghoul retrospective on the PBS station in Cleveland last night -- my mother called to let me know around 10:00 pm. (Your 10 pm calls are usually to let you know that someone has keeled over.) There are clips on youtube of the Ghoul and Big Chuck.

OK, so now do you believe in sychronicity? Ghoul power! Actually my favorite Ghoul moment was at the height of the Nixon nonsense and he just put on a Nixon Halloween mask and sat and stared at the camera, I almost lost my dinner laughing.
