There are several candidates for that honor, among them the man known as Soupy Sales. In the early sixties, Soupy hit the airwaves with his (supposedly) child-oriented program. What ensued was more than a decade of goofy songs, flying pies, and hassles from suits in the control room. Brooke reflects on TV censorship, then and now.
