Shari Show, The

Shari Lewis stars in this classic children's series, playing the secretary of television station manager Mr. Bearly of Bearly Broadcasting, a place where puppets staff all the positions. A multi-racial, multi ethnic family, the show's inhabitants explore human interaction and value judgments in the course of this delightful comedy.

Ms. Lewis will long be remembered for her sugary sweet, humanitarian approach to entertaining and teaching children, and for her puppeteer and ventriloquist skills that ultimately introduced the world to the unforgettable characters that include loveable Lamb Chop and Charlie Horse.

On this show, the puppets running the station include gossip columnist Hedga Hopper, Dandylion the Announcer, sportscaster Red O'Hair, weather person Wing Ding, and morning talk show host Early Bird. The Shari Show stimulates children's sense of curiosity and humor, while they learn. This is one reason why Lewis, a multi-Emmy Award winner, FCC mandate witness and recipient of a Parents Choice Award is still enjoyed and loved by millions of children and adults.
