The New Soupy Sales Show

Show Summary

The New Soupy Sales Show is a children's daily television show starring Soupy Sales, an American comedian. It is taped at KTLA Channel 5 in Los Angeles, California. This series consists of 65 thirty-minute episodes that originally aired on weekdays from January 1, 1979 to March 1, 1979. The episodes typically include skits in which Sales receives a pie in the face, which is his trademark. Extremely bad puns were also a regular part of Sales' routines. Live actors on the show include Clyde Adler, Marty Brill and Bo Kaprell, who play various characters in the skits. The show also features puppets such as Black Tooth, Hippie the Hippo, Pookie the Lion and White Fang. The primary running feature on the show is "The Adventures of Soupyman," which is a parody of Superman. Sales plays multiple characters such as super hero Soupyman, his mild-mannered alter ego Clark Bent and his girlfriend Peaches. The newspaper editor is played by Clyde Adler.
