Soupy Sales, one of my heroes and one of America’s great slapstick geniuses, has died at age 83. He is survived by his wife, Trudy, and two sons, Hunt and Tony.
I can remember turning on The Soupy Sales Show as a kid and my mother rolling her eyes and calling him”that silly man”, and telling me to watch something else( All the more reason for me to turn it back on once she had left the room). So my early education on Soupy was a spotty one. My husband and I got our mitts on some Soupy DVD’s a while back (as well as copies of The Uncle Floyd Show) and thus began my re-aquaintance with Soupy, White Fang, Black Tooth, and Pookie.
