Soupy Sales - woo hoo! Soupy's show is a good example of a timeless comedy. Even though the show's over 40 years old, it's still funny today.

I still love the story about how viewers took his "little green pieces of paper" skit seriously. (He got in trouble for it, though.)

There is also an urban legend about how he put in double-entendres in his show to appeal to adults. In an interview, Soupy was not happy about the urban legend about his show and he offered a reward to anyone who can prove that he really did use double entendres in his show.

Pookie for K? Do you mean the girl who hates pookie? Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

I love that Cindy Cindy song. The music on that show is phenomenal! I must, must, must find the songs from that one episode, I can't remember which one it is exactly, but it also had that really cool Dylan cover. Soupy was a pretty hip fella!!!

*I can't sell anymore, my brain died while writing an essay last night.

Hey John

Recently in my Storyboard and Layout class, my teacher pulled me aside to tell me he felt my understadning and knowledge of the material was on a completely different level than everyone else in the class.
I work incredbily hard and am more passionate about animation than anyone I have ever met, and although i contribute a lot of my skill and talent to that, I must say that I have learned a lot of invaluable methods and techniques, and obtained a much better understanding of animation through your blog and posts.
so thank you. thank you for all the time and effort you put into keeping this site alive.
A lot of my work is posted on my blog if you were intrested.

Soupy Sales really does need to be collected on DVD someday.

And while I'm dreaming, I'd like to see a DVD composed of nothing but the puppet sequences from the original broadcasts of Rocky and Bullwinkle.

Show the clip where Soupy tells children to send him stolen money.

Andrew said...

I love these clips John, they're great. Do you know when is this from?

I am wondering if it's Clyde Adler or Frank Nastasi performing Pookie. I am pretty sure it's Clyde, but I don't know the date of this so I'm not sure.

I can't even spell spell.

The shame is overwhelming me.

Hmmms - I think that puppet show was a bit before my time. It looks really cute and fun though. Maybe too much thought goes into todays cartoons. Sometimes simplicity is all we need.

Oh on the subject of expressions and the "tude" expression. Cartoonists are really defensive about their "'TUDE" problems, I have found. Since you pointed it out and I have been making a concious effort to stop the 'Tude drawings. I see it everywhere now! And the pros are not even aware that they are drawing it and how ridiculous it is on some characters. And when you say something about it - DUCK, because the Tude offending artist is probably going to punch you!

Floro Dery was totaly right ...
"If you are jealous of another artist, praise his artwork to high heavens. Don't tell him his weaknesses so that he will never improve. If you really want to trash an artist's ego, tell him straight out that his artwork sucks. Then duck."
"Why?" my friend asked.
"He is definitely going to punch you!"

You probably don't know Floro - he was the main artist of the Original Transformers and some other cartoons. He's really an awesome artist. He didn't get as much credit as he deserved. Anyway ...

Maybe we can learn a lot from simple sock puppets.

Soupy was certainly an important broadcasting pie-in-ear, to be sure!

Do I have what it takes to write comedy in today's market?
