Soupy was born in North Carolina and raised in West Virginia, but calls Detroit his second home. He now lives in New York, is in pretty poor health and unable to perform any more.

I believe that his kids were jamming with David Bowie in a band for a couple years in the 90s.

Did PeeWee Herman get his ideas from him, I know that his show was very similar. I think that Soupy was great! I like when he performed with Sammy Davis and Frank Sinatra in a restuarant episode and they were throwing pies at each other.

Who could forget White Fang - the best. Then the song became a hit on the radio - too too much.

I read about that in Tim Kiska's book on old Detroit television. Classic.

My late friend Vic Hill (transplanted Englishman) was a stagehand at the studio where Soupy's program was televised. They had a contest to see who the best pie thrower was. Vic by far had the best aim, and was for the duration, Soupy's #1 pie thrower. Vic was the head stagehand at WXYZ TV for years.

It was my understanding that Clyde Adler threw the pies, as well as work the puppets. I'll have to look into this one.

White Fang, Black Tooth and Willie the Worm. Were the pies whipped cream or shaving cream?

The pies were made of shaving cream; Soupy preferred Aero-Shave brand.

Anyone have the link to play "White Fang"? If I'm not mistaken, Soupy sang it?
