I remember Tom Hatten. Didn't he wear a navy dixie cup for his Popeye theme? Do you remember Lloyd Thaxton dance show in Los Angeles? Remember Soupy Sales with White Fang?

Trivia question: Why did Soupy Sales get cancelled? It was a scandal. If you get it, you win an all expense paid vacation to fabulous Puerto Vallarta (recognize that prize?)...har!

Interesting that I can remember those people and shows, but don't have a clue as to what I did months ago.

Yeah, Tom Hatten played Popeye cartoons, had a big easel and would turn random squiggles into cartoons. And who can forget Lloyd Thaxton and “King of the One Inch Ties” (remember those??)

And I LOVED Soupy Sales.....White Fang, Black Tooth and Pookie (not to be confused withe Pookie’s Tunes...). Ol’ Soup got in trouble several times. The one I remember most was for asking kids to find their parents’ wallets and send him any pieces of paper with pictures of presidents on them. And you never knew who was going to show up at his door. It was really great fun.
