Lamb Chop is a sweet sock puppet sheep created by comedian and ventriloquist Shari Lewis in 1957. During the 1960s, Lamb Chop appeared on Lewis's musical-comedy television show. In 1992, Lewis created Lamb Chop's Play-Along, a children's show for PBS that won five Emmy Awards. Shari Lewis died in 1998, but her daughter Mallory has kept Lamb Chop alive for her many fans.
