  • show Description
  • Sharon, Lois & Bram, a popular kid-song singing trio got their own show in 1984 after 6 years of making music albums for children. The show was about Sharon,Lois and Bram, three people who lived with Elephant (who was assumed to be male although his role was performed by a woman in an elephant costume) who never spoke but provided slapstick comedy and laughs. They usually had friends (children) at their house and would sing with them and do various activities each episode. The show also frequently featured concert clips of Sharon,Lois & Bram, and many guest stars. Some episodes taught values or morals and some were just based around the lovable character Elephant. The show ran with new episodes from 1984 till 1988. It didn't produce new episodes in 1985, but had 2 seasons in 1986. The series produced 65 episodes. In the first years of its running it was shown in Canada. Nickelodeon's Nick Jr. picked up the series in the late eighties and reran it in reruns till circa 1996. By then Blue's Clues, Gullah Gullah Island, and other Nick Jr. shows were pushing it off the lineup. In 1997 a follow up show called Skinnamarink TV premiered. It was altered from the first series to include a talking 7-year-old girl elephant named Ella Accapella, and C.C. CopyCat, a teen-aged cat character. The show ended in 1998 after 2 seasons with a total of 52 episodes. Lois's husband's died shortly after - she has since left the traveling trio but still records with the group. In 2002, the three were named members of the Order of Canada. Currently, Bram & Sharon tour and sing under the title "Sharon,Bram & Friends". Sharon,Lois & Bram paved the way for a new generation of children's TV and music, and created their trademark song Skinnamarink which they are probably best known for.moreless
