After enjoying Ed's lovingly curated site . . .
. . . see more about Soupy and six other classic local TV personbalities at the Detroit Historical museum's new exhibit.
White Fang's pie-tossing master is featured as one of those who "have contributed to Detroit's rich heritage . . . [and] love the city every bit as much as we do."

He changed television. Maybe America. It was sort of the end of the age of innocence for kids watching television. I loved the guy.

Saw Soupy's display in the Detroit Historical Museum's exhibit ... great stuff! I wonder if he'll actually be able to make it town to see it.

Soupy is just out of the hospital after a short stay. He is well, but pretty weak and probably won't be travelling soon.

Thanks, Ed. I recall that Soupy hosted some of the all time great jazz artists on that late night show. I think anyone that performed in Detroit during that time frame appeared on Soupy's show. My parents worked for a music company that sometimes provided sheet music and instruments for those artists.

Nice homage to Soupy in Susan Whitall's piece in today's Detroit News ...

I've gotta believe a whole bunch of people will want to see the ORIGINAL White Fang and Black Tooth puppets at the Detroit Historical Museum exhibit ... talk about the "fabric of Detroit."
