One Last Pie

After posting the Soupy Sales album a few days ago, I was reminded of the fact that I own one other Soupy record. This time around it's a Children's story record entitled, "Spy With A Pie". This was released on ABC-Paramount back in the early 60s, before the contract with Reprise. Believe it or not, this album was a huge success and it topped the charts at the time. The story follows Soupy on his mission to foil the villainous Squid's destruction of American moon rockets by joining the circus and hurling a well-aimed pie at the crucial moment. Soupy's puppet characters are all here with him. Although the album is clearly intended for the kids who watched Sales' television show, there are countless jokes that few children would understand, including digs at ABC-TV, the ratings board, and mildly risqué puns. So, here is one last tribute to the pie throwing madman. Here is "Spy With A Pie". Enjoy!
