Soup’s Gone Cold

Soupy Sales -  "The Mouse"

Soupy Sales, famed comedian from the Golden Age of Television, dead at 83

Born Milton Supman in North Carolina, Sales was best known for his long-running local and network children’s television show, “Lunch with Soupy Sales.”

The show’s comedy sketches made use of such whacky characters like White Fang, the biggest and meanest dog in the USA; Pookie the Lion, a hipster with rapier wit; Peaches, Soupy’s girl, whom he played in drag; private detective Philo Kvetch; The Mask, Kvetch’s evil nemesis, and “Onions” Oregano, henchman of The Mask.

The sketches often ended with Sales getting plastered with a pie in the face, which became his trademark and delighted his fans.

Stars such as Frank Sinatra, Tony Curtis and Shirley Maclaine appeared on the show for pie-throwing.
