The Unforgettable Soupy Sales

Remember this guy? Soupy Sales, the legendary kids’ TV comic of the 1950s and 60s, was truly off the wall.

Here he is in 1993, recalling a live TV stunt he pulled in 1965 which got him kicked off the air–telling children to send him “those green pieces of paper” found in Mom’s pocketbook or Dad’s wallet.

So they did!

Soupy, you were one of a kind.

Another Humorous Interlude

In 1965 singer Ed Ames starred as Fess Parker’s Native American sidekick in the TV series, Daniel Boone. He also appeared live on Johnny Carson to demonstrate the tomahawk-throwing skill he had acquired in playing the role of Mingo.

The result is one of the all-time live TV bloopers.

Hey, we all need a laugh–and this will give you one. I guarantee it.
