Lamb Chop's Play-Along

Show Summary

It had been 29 years since Shari Lewis had been cancelled by NBC, and she was ready to win back American audiences. With the creation of Lamb Chop's Play-Along!, a new generation of preschoolers got to hear the wonderful Shari Lewis perform the alter egos of Lamb Chop, Hush Puppy, and Charlie Horse. Each show was full of jokes and sing-alongs, including one of the most remembered ending themes by childhood fans 'The song that never ends'. Lamb Chop's Play-Along! ran for four series on PBS before being lifted for Shari's last show, The Charlie Horse Music Pizza.

  • I absolutely LOVED this show as a child.

    I absolutely LOVED this show as a child.



    I wish more shows for children today were like Lamb Chop's Play-Along. This was one of the sweetest, most innocent shows ever designed for children. It was original, entertaining, and there was no violence.



    It's too bad it's practically impossible to buy the tapes, CDs and videos that were made of this show because of the legal fight they had after Shari's death. More children should get to enjoy it.



    I heard Shari's daughter is trying to revive some of the magic created by her mother, but she only uses the Lambchop puppet and doesn't do the voice very well. It's really a shame.moreless
  • Puppets and human interaction for childrens programming.

    I watched this every morning before I left for school. Good quality TV!! I loved her songs, the theme song and the song that never ends...... I still sing them from time to time. I even used to try to make the crafts she would make. Too bad they don't make great children programs like this anymore well they do have tapes you can buy. Most children programming contains too much advanced material now a days. I'm rambling because I have to have 100 words I guess. Almost there, I'll finish by saying Lamb Chops Play-Along was awesome I enjoyed every minute of it!!moreless

    Lamb Chop was one of the best shows ever when I was growing up. They just don't make good kids shows like that anymore. Sure Charlie Horse was a jerk and Lamb Chop was a baby, and Hush Puppy didn't get as much screen time as the two of them, but Shari was really cool. I really miss her.
  • A woman and her sock friends entertaining and teaching children and adults alike! It doesn\'t get much better than that!

    This show is up there in children\'s shows that could last the test of time. However, I am biased because Shari Lewis was my cousin, and we were devestated when she passed away. She was a very talented and intelligent woman who really reached into the hearts and souls of children with her games and activities. ITS BETCHA TIME!!! I grew up watching this show and I can\'t wait to show it to my children on video when I have children. Some other children\'s shows are annoying, but this show was one that even adults could watch and enjoy. BRAVO!moreless
  • Sherrie Lewis was one of the best puppeteirs that I have ever know. She brought comman sence to a crass and brutal world. She was sometimes silly but always so right on the ball. It's a shame she is gone, she is sorely missed. My kids still love her.moreless

    She was most all little kids super hero, she showed the world the good side of life. Delving out punishment to her puppets, as if they were real made a most spectular impression of america\'s little minds. It gave them an understanding beyond their age. Lamb Chop, Charlie Horse, and other puppets have shown our youth that you can be good and get what you want if you are respectful of parents and elders.

    Yea, it might have been a little silly, but at least it wasnt bloody and gore for the fragile minds of our young minds.We will always Love you Sherrie.moreless
