Very funny man. Very influential in the formation of comedic expression in his era.

Have very fond memories of watching the Soupy Sales show on New York's Channel 5 back in the 60s. Back then, there was no cable, and for my family to be able to watch Channel 5 on our old RCA Victor TV set, all the way from Meriden CT (90 miles away from NYC) was a treat all by itself. We would have to move the antenna, fiddle with the dial, and hope the weather helped, in order to get a snowy image but even with all that fuss we would occasionally luck out and watch Soupy's show. Some of the kids I went to school with used to watch Soupy Sales also, and whenever we could get Channel 5 we would talk about it at school. I remember two particular Soupy Sales' shows: one, in which he did a crazy dance he called "the mouse," and another in which he danced along to "that hip new song," Wooly Bully, by Sam the Sham and the Pharoahs. I thought that was the coolest song EVER. "Watch it now. Watch it! Watch it!" Oh yeah, Soupy was great fun.

Our Saturday routine was to go to the water tower, climb to the top, wait for the defense test siren, then race our bikes back home (about four blocks) to watch Soupy Sales.

I remember seeing this...


...as a pre-feature filler at the movies back in the '60s.

I can't remember what the feature was but I've never forgotten Birds Do It.

A bygone era.

RIP, Soupy.
