You know I really don't remember Mr. Soup very well.But I read of his death on FOX news, so I wasn't sure if it was a REAL news story, cuz you know... FOX news is not a real news station.Ha!Those are great quotes! I keep on forgetting to write... I love the Halloweenie stuff you got goin' on in here! Fun, spooky fun!
I read somewhere that many of these lines are urban legend that were mistakenly attributed to him on his kid's show. Nevertheless, I well remember watching Soupy and yukking it up. Did you know his kids played with David Bowie in Tin Men?
I never did get the urge to watch anything that he was a part of. Not sure why. The guy just never yanked my chain. I guess Cool Whip sales will fall now.
@ dufus - I read that too, but they were too funny to pass up. Remember "Do the Mouse"? Reminds me of your post at downbeat dufus, "Do the Freddie".@ Don - I did watch, Frank Sinatra was just one of the many stars that appeared for Soupy's infamous pie-in-the-face gag.
@ Quirky - Thanks, I'm glad you like the spooky fun!
I used to love Soupy Sales but, to be honest, until I saw that he just died, I was absolutely convinced that he had died a number of years ago. Is that a sign of me getting old?
I used to get a kick out of his stuff. My dad would just roll at his jokes. Like Joel I kind of thought he was dead already and no, that isn't a sign of you getting old because I'm not old! Another good one is gone.
@ Joel - Yes!@ Buggys - My dad would too! I was just too young to get it. But I loved the pies in the face.
Like Buggys' dad, mine would be laughing til he cried. I liked watching the show in the 70's, but I loved more seeing my dad in stitches like that. His laugh is contagious. RIP Soupy.
I am old enough to remember Soupy Sales; gosh he was an original. He's part of my growing up memories; thanks for reminding me.
I remember soupy sales but I don't recall watching him very much. Those lines are pretty good.
Never heard of the guy. But the jokes are hilarious :) lol
"do the mouse!"loved the guy, :-)thanks, me-me...ero
I was sad to see he had died. I used to love him. Great quotes.
I remember Soupy more as a panelist on something. The Gong Show maybe? I forget.
Soupy Died? Man have I been out of it. RIP Soupy! He was awesome.
Thanks for stopping by The Screaming Me-Me!!!
