    Welcome to The Shari Lewis Show guide at TV.com.

    Shari Lewis was a popular puppeteer on the local New York television variety show circuit before NBC introduced her to the rest of the world. In 1952, Lewis and her puppetry won first prize on Arthur Godfrey & His Talent Scouts television show. In March 1956, she and Lamb Chop appeared on Captain Kangaroo and by 1960 she had her own television program. Her series, like many children's shows of the time, taught kids valuable lessons while simultaneously entertaining them and warming their hearts.

    The popularity of the show came partly from the appeal of Shari's puppets—Hush Puppy, Charlie Horse, and of course the beloved Lamb Chop. But Shari herself had a certain appeal as well, for both kids and adults perceived her as a cute, bubbly, and very non-threatening lady.

    Lewis, one of the few female puppeteers to have her own show, was not only an adept ventriloquist, but was also able to imbue her puppets with a truly lovable quality that kids found irresistible. Eventually, she went on to win twelve Emmy Awards and the prestigious Peabody award for her work in children's programming.

    Other guests on the show were her large dog, Jump Pup, and her next-door neighbor, Mr. Goodfellow.moreless

He was a loner who never finished high school and had been orphaned as a small child. As an adult he served six years in prison on a trumped-up murder charge, before being pardoned. In short Ross had found the world a very unfriendly place and considered himself an "outsider".moreless
