Soupy show

(Thanks Nay)

Dear Inman: When I was a kid in the 1970s, there was a show with a soup name, possibly on public TV, like “Chicken Soup” or “Tomato Soup.” I think it was puppets who would fly up into space in a ship one of the boy characters had made. There could also have been some cartoons of dancing soup spoons? The more I think about this, the kookier it sounds. Could this have just been my imagination? — T.M., by e-mail

Dear T.M.: Maybe, but it also could have been “Vegetable Soup,” which ran on PBS stations from 1975-78. Voices included James Earl Jones, Daniel Stern and, as Woody the Spoon, Bette Midler!

    I have actually seen this once, its weird and Bette didnt sound the same at all but you could tell it was her. It was a strange cartoon really but i guess it was good in its day. 😀
