Soupy: What, Me Retire?

08/28/1997 at 12:00 AM EDT

Veteran slapstick comedian Soupy Sales, 75, is on a new career roll, only don't ask him why. "Maybe as you get older people feel sorry for you or something," Sales told the Associated Press. "Or maybe they just need more older actors." Sales has a recurring role on Sci-Fi cable TV's "Black Scorpion" and is due to be seen in three upcoming movies: "This Train," "Little Bit of Lipstick" and "Palmer's Pickup." "Why should I retire?" wonders the 1960s children's TV star. "I don't do any heavy lifting."
