Shari and Lamb Chop

Lisa D’Apolito

Shari Lewis was a dancer, singer, and magician but is best known as the ventriloquist behind sock puppets Charlie Horse, Hush Puppy, and, of course, Lamb Chop. This fantastic documentary follows the ups and downs of this trailblazing woman, who forever changed the face of children’s television. Featuring ventriloquists who she inspired and nostalgia-inducing clips, this upbeat portrait of the beloved TV personality brims, like Lewis, with warmth and charm.
