Kids,what begins with an F and ends in U-C-K?
That's right---FIRE TRUCK!
 
Comedian and 60s kiddie show host, Soupy Sales, has died at the age of 83.  He once told all the kiddies to go into Mommy's purse, take out all those green pieces of paper with the faces on them, and mail them to him.  He was suspended from TV for a while for that.
 
During his career, he took 20,000 pies to the face.  He had an AM hit in the 60s, called Do the Mouse.
 
His sons Hunt and Tony were in bands with the likes of David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Todd Rundgren and others.
 
 
RIP, Soupy.  Cry

I "ate lunch" with Soupy Sales every Saturday as a child.  His show was obviously for kids, but yet he could throw in subtle zingers with the best of them.

Ever see the "blooper" of him anwering the door and there was really a naked woman behind it?  LOL

Hooty, yes I did see that.  Hysterical. 

Thor, can you find one for Pafalafaka (if that is, indeed, the spelling)?  I had trouble last night finding one with "The Mouse" that didn't have other stuff on it. 

Thanks for posting it.

Ahh yes, Faith!  I think it's Pakalafaka (or at least it's pronounced that way).  And I tried finding that once before on Youtube, but couldn't.  Maybe now that he's on people's minds, it'll show up.
 
 
edit:  Here're the lyrics.
 
Pachalafaka, pachalafaka
They whisper it all over Turkey
Pachalafaka, pachalafaka
It sounds so romantic and perky
Oh, I know that phrase
will make me thrill always
For it reminds me of you, my sweet
just the mention of
that tender word of love
gives my heart a jerkish, Turkish beat

I won't say c'est bon
or l'amour toujours
For they can't express what I'm feeling
Even maresydoats or
other foreign quotes
don't seem to be quite so appealing
But pachalafaka! pachalafaka!
takes me back with you to passionate desert scenes
and it's there we'll stay
till the very day
we find out what pachalafaka means
we find out what pachalafaka means

I'd forgotten the correct pronunciation, so I was spelling it wrong.  LOL

The first TV show I remember seeing when I was a little kid was Soupy Sales.
 
Here's a YouTube vid where Soupy himself talks about the "green pieces of paper" incident. Hilarious.

I knew who Soupy Sales was when I was a kid, but I never watched anything he was on, so I don't really have any kind of "connection" to him.
 
Seemd like a decent person though.
 
Another TV pioneer gone.
 
 
Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Fact...

Soupy Sales sons are musicians who played for Todd Rundgren and David Bowie.
Thank God for kids who love Obscure Things.
