A ‘Soap’ Care Package

A hearty thank you to Soap fan extraordinaire Jeff Krueger for loaning me his collection of Soap-related items, and what a collection it is. From hard-to-find scripts to even harder to find magazine clippings, related TV episodes (including impossible to find episodes of Fay!), and reunion material. You rock, Jeff!

  1. Will you be including some of this stuff as images in the book? 🙂 What is that item with the sketches of Jessica and Mary?

    BTW- do you recall those Comedy Central commercials that aired when the channel started showing “Soap”? It was Hatherine H., Robert G. and Jay Johnson. I think they were for some kind of “Soap”/laundry contest; Katherine was wearing red. And she said something like, “I wonder what happened to that guy who played Jodie…” 🙂

  2. Hi Jim. Yes, the hope is to indeed include some of these awesome items in the book; the sketches are Jeff’s own. (Will have to get better pics of these items as this one isn’t very clear — my apologies.) While I was aware that Soap was on Comedy Central, I don’t recall any of the commercials for it. I do, however, have great nostalgic memories of seeing the commercials during Soap’s original run. I was about 6 or 7, but I still remember the clip where Jessica is explaining that Chester fooled around on her, including when she was in the hospital giving birth 😉

  3. Great items! The Canadian version of TV Guide used an actual photo of the cast instead of a sketch. I have a copy if you’d like an image 🙂

    I remember the Comedy Central promos, and I could swear there were ads featuring ABC daytime actors speculating on the fate of characters after the fourth season.

  4. Hi–
    Looking forward to the book!! Is this fall still a possibility?

    On the subject of rarity, have you had access to the third-season opening recap with Katherine Helmond and Robert Guillaume? I am a serious Soap fan, but still have never seen that show.

    • Nov/Dec this year is still the hope, but much of that depends on “day job” workload unfortunately. Though I haven’t seen the recap you mentioned, I suspect it may be somewhere amongst the rarities Jeff sent me in his care package. Will let you know 🙂
