Milton Supman (January 8, 1926 – October 22, 2009) was an American comedian, actor and radio/television personality.  He is best known for his children's television show "Lunch With Soupy Sales", which ran from 1953 through 1966.  He was known professionally as "Soupy Sales" due to his childhood nickname of "Soup Bone" and after vaudeville comedian Chic Sale.

The Soupy Sales Society was a fanclub in the 1960s that offered buttons as well as "autographed sweatshirts" to members.
