Who Rememers "Pookie the Lion" From the Soupy Sales Show?

[ Edited ]

I'm 71 and watched this show faithfully and had the record of all the songs. A favorite was "Pookie the Toreador".

 

"No bull is a match for Pookie

 

Tho I must admit that it is spooky for a lion who can't even roar

 

To be a toreador!"

 

We just loved Pookie. Good memories.

Several months ago I watched the Soupy Sales Show. It was on a retro TV station. It was crazy to watch. Seems like much of the show was ab libbed.

 

I can't seem to find the station that was showing the Show.

I am 64 and although I remember faintly who he was, I have no recollection of the show.   

 

Just today though I had a memory of Shari Lewis  Show and her lamb puppet. Never hear anything about her.  She died young at age 65 of cancer.

I remember Soupy (and Black Fang and White Paw).  He came on in D.C. in 1959.

I am 65 and fondly remember Soupy Sales, White Fang, Black Tooth and Pookie.  Soupy always got hit with those whipped cream pies.

 

I remember being very upset when the show was cancelled.  There wasn't much on TV back then.

 

I remember Shari Lewis and Lamb Chop.  I loved her long pony tail and wished my hair could be like hers.

I loved watching the Soupy Sales show!  I do remember all the characters and Pookie was so funny!

 

Awhile ago one of the TV stations ran the old shows, they were still as funny and enjoyable as when I first watched them.

I think some of those shows were only shown locally.  I have never heard of them...

 

We had some local TV shows too.  I was on TV when I was six.  The show was Aunt Mary's Birthday Party.  My cousin had a sponsored birthday party on TV.  I was there with five boys...all my cousins.  I was the only girl.

 

Everyone got a gift to bring home.  My gift was a cloth doll that came with a pen for people to write on.  I collected signatures on her blue skirt.  I wonder what happened to her.
