OK, if you grew up in the greater Detroit metro area during the 50's (that is the 1950's), you knew Soupy Sales. You ate lunch with him, you watched the pies fly, you rolled on the floor laughing at the antics of Soupy and his White Fang, Black Tooth, Pookie the Lion and maybe the not so famous, Hippy the Hippo (I personally don't remember Hippy).
Soupy, AKA, Milton Supman was born Janury 8, 1926 and died October 22, 2009.
You will be missed Soupy.
Thanks for the laughs, the corny and innocent humor and the memories.
