Editorial Reviews

Soupy Sales became one of the legends of TV comedy with a cast of zany characters that never failed to attract some of the biggest names in show business. We're proud to bring to you this box-set of 3 DVD's featuring the entire gang from the original TV episodes...White Fang, Black Tooth and Pookie...plus some very special guests dropping in.

4.0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware!....but with that being said... May 8, 2006
...let me start by saying that "The New Soupy Sales Show" (which is what almost all of this collection is based on) is an extremely funny set of skits, riffs, and humorous repartee' from one of the giants of children's shows from the '70s and early '80s.

The only major complaint that I have with this set is that there is borderline false advertising regarding the inclusion of ORIGINAL material from this comic genius. If the buyer doesn't read the description on the back of the DVD carefully, he or she might believe that this DVD set contains material from Soupy's late '50s and '60s children's show. It actually contains very little (with the exception of a great skit from the original show that includes Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr. and Trini Lopez). Tragically, most of the original show has been erased and will never be available for viewing again.

Another concern deals with the inclusion of what is one of the funniest outtakes in TV history....Soupy's visit by a backstage stripper. If the viewer has seen footage of this on some of the Dick Clark "Bloopers" shows on television over the years, they would know that the viewer only sees what's in front of the set and how it unnerves Soupy. This DVD contains the actual "stripper footage" from the BACK of the set that exposes the well-endowed dancer in all of her glory. Not for viewing by children! (Soupy's reaction to the prank is PRICELESS, though!)

With all of this being said, let me close by saying that this DVD set is certainly worth the price I paid for it. Soupy Sales was a comic genius and his good-natured puns and humor never tire. He appeared to love his work and often times "cut himself up" with what he was saying or what was going on around him. One can't watch these 3 disks without laughing out loud!

RECOMMENDED for fans of the old show!

1.0 out of 5 stars Soupy Sez... Less is... LESS! February 11, 2006
I grew up watching The Soupy Sales Show on ABC in Los Angeles. I had the record, and I have the guitar songbook. If you ask me, I can play and sing "I'm A Singer Without A Song" and "Hippy's Cha Cha Hips". I've been on the hunt for tapes of the 60s shows since VHS was in its infancy. I know my Soupy.

Back in the late 80s, Rhino came out with three tapes of the Soupy Sales show. They were kind of skimpy on the running time- each one had two episodes... one original 60s B&W show and one of the lukewarm late 70s remakes. But considering how long it had been since I had seen the show, I was satisfied with them.

I was thrilled when I heard that Soupy was finally being given a DVD release, especially since Ernie Kovacs and Sid Caesar have had such great DVD retrospectives. I hoped that this would be just as good, with a higher ratio of B&W to 70s remake. The cover really excited me... there was Soupy singing The Mouse!

Unfortunately, this three DVD set has LESS than the three Rhino tapes did in every way possible... Soupy doesn't sing The Mouse anywhere on this set, the original theme song isn't here either. There's only a measley ten minutes of footage from the classic 60s Soupy Sales Show, and the DVDs have shorter running times than the VHSs did. In fact, the running time is so short, they could have easily fit everything here on a single DVD.

This set was produced by Marino Amoruso. In the liner notes, he goes on and on about how he viewed hours and hours of material to select the absolute best of Soupy Sales. Amoruso should be pelted with pies for cheating Soupy Sales fans shamelessly. Soupy Sales deserves a REAL DVD release with the REAL Soupy Sales Show. I don't care if they are only in fuzzy kinescopes or glitchy two inch videotape. The footage exists.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as it's gonna get... November 12, 2006
Verified Purchase
The only thing really, that's wrong with this set is that there isn't enough of it. Sure, it's three disks, yet there's only one episode on each disk (plus an extra). But-- it's not expensive (though they probably could have saved some money in its production if they'd put it all on one disk). -- UPDATE: it wasn't expensive, until it went out of print, sorry...

The real problem is, there just *isn't* as much of the best Soupy in existance as most of us fans would like-- it's now only in the ether-- left for aliens to enjoy on their TVs millions of years from now when our first TV signals finally reach them.

It's a crime that much of the early '60s shows were erased, but there's nothing that can be done about that. This collection, though all from the "new soupy sales show" from the '70s/'80s-- is still a pretty darn good representation of even the early shows-- all the signature elements are here-- fang, pookie, listening to the weather, words of wisdom, an endless stream of characters that you never actually see showing up at the door, conversations with the offscreen staff, and of course the PIES. And I found this set every bit as funny as I remembered. If you love Soupy Sales, this is as good as it's gonna get-- unless you get reincarnated as one of those aliens I was referring to. Frankly, I didn't want to wait for that, so I bought this set and am happy with what little I can get of a true genius in the early TV medium. Kovacs was a TV genius too, and I have his shows which are also very funny, but I wouldn't trade them for this set.
