I've decided to create this thread for two reasons: |1.| More episodes of Saturday Supercade, including Donkey Kong's episode "Greenhouse Gorilla" starring Stanley the Bugman, are now uploaded, and |2.| Soupy Sales, American comedian and first voice actor of Donkey Kong, passed away yesterday. He was 83.
Here is a video telling about what he is best known for. Too bad they didn't mention him being the voice of Saturday Supercade's Donkey Kong.
Now here is "Greenhouse Gorilla", the episode featuring Stanley designed after himself on the Donkey Kong 3 arcade flyer.
Criminally underrated video games (including the StarTropics series) are what I prefer the most.
Soupy Sales was a prominent game show celebrity in the 60's, 70's, and 80's. The game show world, myself included, has been mourning him the past few days.
Here's an article focusing on his game show contributions, written by a friend of mine, with a few links to some of his game show appearances on Pyramid and Body Language in the mid 80's, and What's My Line in the early 1970's. He was also seen often on others such as Match Game, Hollywood Squares, various incarnations of Password including Super Password (where I most remember him outside Pyramid), GO, Chain Reaction, and Win Lose or Draw.
