The Laurel & Hardy "Sons of the Desert" founding tent in New York City held a Soupy Sales Appreciation night in November 2007 at The Players Club. Grand Sheik and MC Jack Roth surprises the crowd with a special guest appearance by the one and only 'HEEEEY BOOBIE" POOKIE (built and performed by Puppeteer Craig Marin). Along with other luminaries (listen for the JOE FRANKLIN quip at about 4:10) SOUPY and his wife Trudy were in the front row for the program!!!
Rick Sapphire just posted a rare clip, shot-off-the-TV, of him doing magic on the LAUREL & HARDY & CHUCK Show, 1962. A wonderful opportunity to see the great "Puppets by Ashley" and feel the warmth-through-the-tube that Chuck shared with us lucky lucky kids. Thanks, Rick for this treasure!
