History in the booksEdit
In the books Soapy is a hand
puppet used by Mr. Good Clean Fun. Kellen likes to depict cussing on a bookly basis. Kellen usually makes Soapy cuss a lot. He also loves Cheetos. Tom stated he never does curse but Kellen draws him cussing (usually about the *@#$ kids). Instead of actually drawing a curse Kellen draws something like @!$¥.
In real lifeEdit
There is a Soapy the monkey and a Mr. Good Clean Fun (played by Brian Compton, an elementary school librarian) do exist and are very much alive (Not Soapy-he's a puppet). Soapy has yet to autograph any books but Mr. Good Clean Fun has.
Fun Facts:EditSoapy is the 2nd most drawn person in the first book and the 3rd in Darth Paper due to his immense need for Cheetos and money the 1st and 2nd obviously being Origami Yoda and Darth Paper.
Here is a photo taken from my middle school yearbook of the real Mr. Good Clean Fun and Soapy the monkey. Soapy has his mouth open so is sort of hard to see.
The man’s real name is Reggie and his monkey is named Self.
Unlike Mr. Good Clean Fun, Reggie was pretty good if I remember correctly. And I liked his monkey puppet so much that I got one for myself. And that monkey puppet is the one that appears as Soapy in the books.
