i was watching an old episode of "F Troop" and near the end of a scene in a saloon the character pours his coffee onto his saucer? and i wonder if that is where the writers for LOTSW got the idea for Compo to do that?

In many an old movie going way back in order to show a lack of proper manners a character would pour coffee into a saucer and blow on it to cool it off as to be able to drink it sooner.
