Soupy Sales: The Whole Gang Is Here

Episode 1 of 1

SPLAT! That's the sound of one of the more than 20,000 pies legendary comedian Soupy Sales got hit in the face with over his half-century-long career. Born Milton Supman on January 8, 1926, in Franklinton, North Carolina and raised in Huntington, West Virginia, Soupy would go on to make over 5,000 television appearances before succumbing to cancer on October 22, 2009 in the Bronx, New York. Most famous for his 1960s children's TV series The Soupy Sales Show, Sales became a beloved icon of Baby Boomer generation kids and their parents with his unpredictable sketches, slapstick humor, witty puns, and puppet gags - almost all of which resulted in a pie in the face. Soupy Sales: The Whole Gang is Here pays loving tribute to the late entertainer.
