Lamb Chop's Play-Along! Genre Children's television series Written by Lan O'Kun Bernard Rothman Directed by Michael Watt Stan Jacobson Presented by Shari Lewis Opening theme "It's Lamb Chop's Play-Along!" Ending theme "The Song That Doesn't End" Composer(s) Bob Golden John Rodby Country of origin United States Original language(s) English No. of seasons 4 No. of episodes 85 (list of episodes) Production Location(s) Chicago, Illinois, USA Running time 26 minutes Production company(s) Paragon Entertainment CorporationWTTW Chicago Release Original network PBS (USA) Original release January 13, 1992 – September 22, 1995 Chronology Related shows The Charlie Horse Music Pizza Lamb Chop's Play-Along! is an American half-hour preschool children's television series that was shown on PBS in the United States from January 13, 1992 to September 22, 1995, and in reruns until August 29, 1997.
It was created and hosted by puppeteer Shari Lewis, and featured her puppet characters Lamb Chop, Charlie Horse, and Hush Puppy. Production PBS commissioned the show from Shari Lewis in May 1991, and the show premiered in January 1992. This marked Lewis' return to television after about 15 years (following the BBC version of The Shari Lewis Show in 1975). Lamb Chop's Play-Along was shot at the CBC Studios in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
The series honoured Lewis's father, college professor Abraham Hurwitz - "the official magician of New York City". Ellensburg Daily Record explains: "each half hour is filled with jokes, games, songs, and tricks". Philosophy Shari Lewis said her goal for the audience is "participation, not passive observance". She said: "our goal is, don't just sit there - come play with me". She wanted to "attack the shorter attention span of today's children with a fast-paced show using colorful electronic effects".
She said in an interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer: "I know that when children watch TV, they go into a stupor. Parents think (their children) are interested, but what they really are is [bored]". Lewis testified that making smart content for children was not that hard to produce and should be done with increasing frequency. She said that if children are challenged, they will be productive members of society.
 She said, "I don't care if you tack a prosocial message at the end of the show. You have not done a quality show". Synopsis Appropriately, Lamb Chop is a sheep; other characters are puppets of other farm animals, including Charlie Horse and Hush Puppy.

The rights to the show are currently owned by Universal Television on behalf of DreamWorks Classics. Theme songs Both the opening and closing theme songs were written by Broadway composer Norman Martin. Other songs were written by Square One TV songwriter, John Rodby. Two versions of the opening song with different lyrics have been used; one involves bouncing, the other strength. The ending theme song is "The Song That Never Ends", as sung by the children and puppets while Lewis frantically attempts to stop them.
An instrumental version of the show's theme song was used for a most recent show of Mallory Lewis and Lamb Chop. Critical reception The show received a rating of 8.0 based on 128 votes, at TV.com, and score of 7.8/10 at IMDb based on 407 ratings.

What is PBS KIDS’ mission? PBS KIDS is committed to making a positive impact on the lives of children through curriculum-based entertainment with positive role models and content designed to nurture a child’s total well-being. With a 360-degree approach towards learning and reaching children, PBS KIDS leverages the full spectrum of media and technology to build knowledge, critical thinking, imagination and curiosity.
PBS KIDS encourages children to interact as respectful citizens in a diverse society. By involving parents, teachers, caregivers and communities as learning partners, PBS KIDS helps to empower children for success in school and in life. PBS’ bottom line is measured by how much it contributes to the welfare of America’s children. PBS’s children’s media and family and educator resources include PBS KIDS television series, pbskids.
org, PBS Parents, PBS Teachers, PBS KIDS Raising Readers and literacy events across the country. PBS is a nonprofit media enterprise owned and operated by the nation’s 356 public television stations. Learn more about PBS. What happened to PBS KIDS GO! ? The PBSKIDSGO.org website has been combined with the overall PBS KIDS experience. PBS KIDS remains committed to delivering high quality educational experiences for school-aged children.
Shows such as WILD KRATTS, THE ELECTRIC COMPANY, FETCH! WITH RUFF RUFFMAN, WORDGIRL, ARTHUR, CYBERCHASE and more are all still available on your local PBS station and on PBSKIDS.org. The Cartoon Studio is still available and the Secret Box is now your PBS KIDS Profile page. PBS KIDS is still the place for shows like Sesame Street, Curious George, Super Why, Clifford, and Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, and pbskids.
org is the home for all of these characters! On most local stations, PBS KIDS shows are on TV in the morning – check TV Times to see what time your favorites air in your area. What are PBS KIDS’ educational goals and how are they supported? PBS KIDS content helps preschool and school aged children in each of the four key areas of childhood development – cognitive, social, emotional and physical.
Funded by a Ready To Learn grant from the United States Department of Education, the Ready To Learn initiative is developing engaging PBS KIDS Raising Readers television programs, exciting games, playful Web sites, and easy-to-use learning resources for kids, parents, caregivers, and teachers—all with the goal of helping children ages 2 to 8 get ready to read. As a critical area of development, PBS is strengthening its offerings around science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), inviting children to explore and develop interest and appreciation for the natural and life sciences through programs including Sid the Science Kid, Curious George, Cyberchase and Dinosaur Train.
We work with experienced educational film or television producers who involve children, educational researchers, parents, educators, daycare providers and subject-matter experts in the design and production process. PBS and its producers conduct research to determine the best ways to engage children in active viewing in order to achieve the educational goals within PBS KIDS content. PBS requires its children’s producers to create educational support materials for young people and the adults who care for them.
Programs are extended beyond broadcast to interactive learning activities on pbskids.org, as well as through educational outreach activities and print materials. Parents and Caregivers can find Parent-Child learning activities and supporting materials based on PBS KIDS content at PBS Parents. Lesson plans relating to PBS KIDS content can be found at PBS Teachers. Is there research that proves that kids learn critical skills from PBS KIDS? Series-based research has proven that PBS’s preschool and early elementary school content contributes towards engaging and inspiring children to succeed in the core curriculum areas that lead the nation’s education agenda.
For example, a recent study on the preschool series Super Why, conducted by the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania, illustrated that the series strengthens the literacy skills of preschoolers, with all kids showing statistically significant improvement on standardized literacy tests. Most notably, the children from low-income families with poor reading skills and at risk for failure in school scored 46% higher on standardized tests than those who did not watch Super Why.
Other series-based research on programs including Between the Lions and Word World has also proven a significant impact in children’s literacy skill development by watching these programs. Series such as Sesame Street and Barney & Friends have proven their ability to positively impact children’s school readiness and have helped children develop core social emotional skills to better relate to and communicate with their peers.
For school-age children, research conducted on Cyberchase demonstrates the series’ success in helping children strengthen their math skills, while studies conducted on Maya & Miguel have proven the series’ ability to help children develop positive attitudes towards ethnic diversity. I would like to produce a show for PBS KIDS. Where do I send my show idea? If you have an idea for a new show, you can contact your local station or you can take a look at Producing for PBS.
I have a question or comment about a PBS KIDS show or website. Who should I contact? Producers for each program and website are responsible for the program or site’s content and technical experience. You can find contact information for PBS KIDS Producers by selecting an item from this list: How do I find out when a show is on? To find out when a program is on TV, visit our TV Times page. What do I do if I can’t find a show anymore? If you can’t find a program anymore, it might be on at a different time.
Check TV Times for more information. If you still can’t find it, it might be because your PBS station is not airing it anymore. Check with your local station for more information. What happened to that show I used to watch? See if you can find the program you are looking for in the pull-down list below. If you still can’t find it, check with your local station for more information. What is multicasting? Multicasting is the broadcasting of more than one channel of programming.
When the country transitioned from analog to digital television in 2009, television stations gained the capability of sending out more than one stream of programming. This means that instead of receiving just channel 12, a viewer might receive channels 12.1, 12.2, 12.3, and 12.4. Examples of multicast channels aired by public television stations include World Channel and Create, which features “how-to” series (cooking, home improvement, crafts and more).
When will the new 24/7 service launch and where will it be available? The official launch date for the channel and live stream is Monday, January 16, 2017. Local stations in each market make the determination of what services they provide to their communities; in some local markets, the multicast channel will launch after this date. Each PBS station will determine whether they will carry the channel in their local market.
Viewers anywhere in the U.S. will be able to watch the station-branded live stream through pbskids.org and the free PBS KIDS Video App, which is available on a variety of mobile devices and tablets. What shows will be included in the new 24/7 services? The PBS KIDS 24/7 channel will include the following 21 series at launch: ARTHUR BOB THE BUILDER CAILLOU THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT THAT! CLIFFORD THE BIG RED DOG CYBERCHASE DANIEL TIGER'S NEIGHBORHOOD DINOSAUR TRAIN FETCH! WITH RUFF RUFFMAN NATURE CAT ODD SQUAD PEG + CAT READY JET GO! SESAME STREET SID THE SCIENCE KID SPLASH AND BUBBLES SUPER WHY! THOMAS & FRIENDS WILD KRATTS WORDGIRL WORDWORLD How can I have my child’s name appear on PBS KIDS on his or her birthday? PBS KIDS does not sponsor a national birthday club, however some of our PBS Member Stations have local kids’ clubs which broadcast birthday announcements on-air.
Contact your local station to see if there’s a birthday club in your area. They will be very happy to tell you about any local PBS KIDS’ clubs or events. To submit cards for The Sunny Side Up Show, please visit PBS KIDS SPROUT. How can kids send stories and drawings to be on TV? Create and submit a story on Dot’s Story Factory for the chance to be featured on PBS KIDS. Submissions are selected to be showcased in our online showroom and on TV based on storytelling, relevance, and appropriateness.
There’s a program on another channel that I think should be on PBS. Where do I send this suggestion? You can write to your local station and suggest the program. What is PBS KIDS Sprout? Providing enhanced delivery of a trusted source of favorite children’s educational programs, on-demand and around the clock, PBS KIDS Sprout on Demand launched in April 2005 and PBS KIDS Sprout (the cable channel) launched in October 2005.
Offering families 24-hour access to high-quality, educational kids programming, PBS KIDS Sprout is a partnership between Comcast, the country’s leading cable operator; PBS, the most trusted provider of award-winning children’s programming; and HIT Entertainment and Sesame Workshop, two of the leading providers of quality entertainment for young children. The programs featured on PBS KIDS Sprout include episodes of Angelina Ballerina, Barney & Friends, Bob the Builder, Caillou, Dragon Tales, Jay Jay the Jet Plane, Sesame Street, Teletubbies, Thomas & Friends and more.
How can kids send stories or art to be published on PBS KIDS? Many of the sites on PBS KIDS have submission areas for you to share your creative work. There are a few ways you can find places to publish your work: Be on the lookout for links that ask you to “send your work” or to “share your thoughts”. Search using keywords like “share”, “submissions”, or “send”. How do I find a specific activity on the site? If you know the title of the activity or keywords that might help find it, you can search PBS KIDS.
For example, you might do a general search for “cookie recipes” or a more specific search for “Cyberchase railroad” (if you were looking for the Cyberchase Railroad Repair activity). If you don’t find what you want the first time, try a different combination of words. If you know which site has the activity you’re looking for, you can also check the homepage of that site to see if they have a a special section for games and activities, program-specific site map, or search area.
Why don’t some shows have a Web sites here? Some of the programs you watch on your local station might not be PBS KIDS programs. Many stations air programs produced locally or distributed by another organization, such as American Public Television. Also, some television producers choose not to make Web sites for their shows. Why do some of the sites not have television shows? Some of the content on PBS KIDS was created specifically for the Web, allowing us to experiment with new topics and broaden the scope of our curriculum.
Some examples of Web-original projects are African American World for Kids, It’s My Life, EekoWorld, News Flash Five, The Democracy Project and Get Your Web License. Other PBS KIDS sites, such as Africa for Kids, American Experience's WayBack and History Detectives Kids, are age-appropriate companions to primetime television shows that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Do I need permission to use lesson plans and printables in the classroom? You do not need permission for classroom use of lesson plans you find on PBS KIDS, PBS Parents or PBS Teachers.
You may also distribute printed pages from these sites to students, but you should follow these guidelines. Each printed page must include the site’s url on it. You cannot charge students to receive these pages. You cannot reprint elements from a PBS KIDS page in a newsletter or booklet without permission from PBS.

Together, these experiences will offer the very best child and parent experience, increasing round-the-clock access to award-winning PBS KIDS content, especially for those who need it the most. Nielsen data demonstrates that TV is the dominant way children access video, with most viewing taking place on weeknights and weekend afternoons and evenings.
Through the 24/7 channel, PBS KIDS educational programming will be available to children at peak viewing times. Kids in low-income families rely especially heavily on live TV as their primary way to access video and make up a significant percentage of our audience. Children 2-8 in over-the-air homes represent 13% of the population, yet these children watch three times as much PBS and their viewing makes up 37% of weekday viewing of PBS stations.
The live stream can be accessed nearly everywhere, from mobile devices to over-the-top platforms, and will ensure that our programming is available to families wherever they have an Internet connection. Following its initial launch, the live stream experience will expand to offer an integrated games feature, enabling children to toggle between a PBS KIDS show and an activity that extends learning.
The live stream and games feature is grounded in research demonstrating that measurable gains in learning are achieved when children interact with both PBS KIDS video and games. The games will align with the learning goals of each TV series, deepening children’s engagement and supporting learning. What is a linear service? A linear service is one that is scheduled, meaning that programs are put in a specific order and broadcast or streamed in that order.
When will these services launch? On Monday, January 16, 2017, the PBS KIDS 24/7 live stream will launch nationwide on pbskids.org and on the free PBS KIDS Video App for mobile and tablet devices. Later this year, the integrated games feature will launch on the live stream on pbskids.org and the PBS KIDS Video App. The live stream will roll out on over-the-top platforms, such as Apple TV and Roku, following the integrated games feature launch.
Users will be able to stream the PBS KIDS 24/7 channel online at pbskids.org using any web browser. Some users of Internet Explorer 11 on Windows 7 or Windows 10 may experience technical issues. In those cases, we recommend using Firefox, Chrome or Safari instead. Will the live streaming service be available on OTT platforms? Not at this time. OTT technologies do not currently support this type of integration.
As these technologies evolve, we will explore making this experience available. How do I get the most out of this site? What do I need to download and install? To fully enjoy PBS KIDS, we recommend the following computer set-up. Web Browser This site is best viewed with the latest version of either Screen Size The pbskids.org site is best viewed with a screen resolution of 1024x768 or larger. On a 800x600 screen, the graphics and text will appear larger but you will see less at one time without scrolling.
Some games and other activities may be difficult to use on screen resolutions smaller than 800x600. If you don’t know how to change your screen resolution, you can visit the support site for your operating system. Plug-ins Many PBS KIDS sites use free plug-ins to make activities more fun and interactive. The plug-ins are listed below, but not all activities require these plug-ins. Each of these can be downloaded for free.
If you’re not sure if your computer has these plug-ins or if you need to install one or more of them, ask an adult to help you. Adobe Flash Player: Most PBS KIDS games, videos and activities use the Flash Player. Java: Some PBS KIDS games use the Java plug-in. QuickTime: Plays videos and audio. Adobe Reader: Used to display PDFs for downloading and printing coloring pages and other printable activities.
Real Player: Plays videos and audio. Shockwave: Used to play games. Why isn’t the game, video, or song working? Many issues with content not working properly can be solved by updating the various plug-ins listed above and using a supported browser. If you are recieving an error message, check below to find out how to address these issues. If you have tried all of the methods for fixing plug-in and browser issues and believe the site has a problem, let us know.
Someone sent me an e-card. How do I open it? To open your e-card, click on the link in your e-mail or carefully cut and paste the address into your web browser’s address bar. If the address is on two or more lines, it might not work properly. Instead, cut and paste each line into your web browser’s address bar to make one long string. Also, it’s important to remember that if your card was sent more than 14 days ago, it will have expired and no longer be accessible.
What do the error messages on my screen mean? What looks most like the error message you saw? 500 Internal Server Error If you see a message like "500 Server Error" or "The page could not be displayed," this probably means that there was a problem with the PBS KIDS Web servers. Sometimes there are so many people visiting the site that the computers that run PBS KIDS start having problems. If the problem happens just once, it will probably be fixed in a few minutes—you should come back to the page a little later and try to see it again.
None of these messages matches my error There are many other possible error messages that browsers can display. For more information on the error you are recieving you can visit the support site for your browser. My computer is freezing up. What does that mean? If your computer is freezing up when you try to play a game or visit a page on PBS Kids, it may be because Flash, or Java, isn't set up correctly on your machine.
Visit “The game never starts. What should I do?” for more information on checking if these plug-ins are properly installed. If your computer has a PBS KIDS Web page as a background on your desktop, which means you can see PBS KIDS when you’re not looking at a Web browser, then the "Active Desktop" has been set. This can happen accidentally if you right-click on your mouse and select "Set as Wallpaper" or "Set as Background" when using Internet Explorer.
If you don’t have a continuous connection to the Internet, (for example, if you have to dial-up to surf the Web), this can cause your computer to freeze. (The computer tries to display the Web page all the time, so to do that, it tries to connect to the Internet, which depending on your type of connection might not always be possible.) To stop showing a PBS KIDS page as your computer's background, you should probably turn off Active Desktop.
This only applies to Windows users. To turn off Active Desktop: Click on the Start button on the lower left corner of your screen. Select "Settings" and then "Control Panel." In the "Control Panel" window, click on "Display." In the "Display" window, click on the "Web" tab. The "Web" tab will have a check box with a check in it for "Show Web content on my Active Desktop". Below it will be one or more check boxes with names of Web pages.
If you see anything with a check mark, clear it by clicking on the check box. When the check boxes are empty, click on "OK." If your computer is freezing or is not producing sound while on our site even though you have updated the most recent version of Internet Explorer, it could be a problem in the software Internet Explorer uses to run Java applets. To fix it, try installing the most recent version of Java.
How do I bookmark PBS KIDS? Bookmarking a site means you’re saving it in your Web browser so that you can visit it again easily in the future. Look for “Bookmarks”, “Favorites” or an icon such as a star in your browser to add PBS KIDS to your bookmarks list. If you’re having trouble finding out how to bookmark PBS KIDS, you can visit the support site for your browser listed above. Things take a long time to download.
Is something wrong? If the games are taking a long time to appear, it may be that you aren’t using the most recent version of the your Web browser or the needed plug-in. Visit our recommended site set-up section at the top of this page for links to these downloads. Even if you’re using the most recent plug-ins and Web browser versions, though, you might need to be patient. We build all the activities on PBS KIDS to download as quickly as possible so that you won’t have to wait.
However, if you’re visiting our site from a dial-up connection or during peak traffic times (in the evening), then you might need to wait a minute or two for the download to finish. This is most common with games and videos. How do I enable the microphone or webcam functions on PBS KIDS games? For games that have the option of playing with a microphone or webcam, you will need to allow your browser to access the microphone or webcam.

A "session cookie" only remembers information about your current visit to the site. If you decide that you do not want to accept cookies, all features on PBS KIDS will still work.

PBS is grateful to program underwriters for their generous support of PBS KIDS, which the American public ranks as the #1 educational media brand. To acknowledge the vital support that PBS KIDS receives, PBS includes brief messages from corporate sponsors at the start of select full-length episodes on the PBS KIDS Video App for mobile and tablet devices and on pbskids.org. Sponsorship messaging on these platforms mirrors the on-air segments that have been part of PBS KIDS’ broadcast service for many years and adheres to the same strict guidelines.
Specifically, the messages are aimed at parents, not children, and do not include product depictions or comparisons, price information or calls to action. Each segment must include a message of support for public media or for learning, education and social development. The spots are limited to 15 seconds in duration at the start of an episode and do not interrupt programs or appear on clips. PBS conducted audience research to gauge the reaction of parents and children to sponsorship messaging on digital platforms.
Parents confirmed that the messages were different from what they saw on other children’s media sites, were appropriate for public media and did not interfere with their viewing experience. The adult participants appreciated that the spots are short, focused on the proper audience and do not seek to market to children. Funding from corporate sponsors supports PBS KIDS’ mission to use the power of media to open worlds of possibilities for all children.
Corporate sponsors provide critical funding that helps PBS KIDS offer free programming, games and activities to all of America’s children on the many media platforms that they use. Underwriting support also helps fund PBS member stations’ outreach initiatives, which reach low-income families across the country through on-the-ground educational events and services.

If you need assistance with your PBS KIDS Island account, please visit PBS KIDS Raising Readers help section Why do I need a username and password for some activities on PBS KIDS? You need to log in if you would like to save points and other game information (like your EekoCreature while playing in EekoWorld or your game pieces while playing on Kratts’ Creatures).

Please note, though, that you can still play without a username. You just will not be able to save points. What personal information does PBS KIDS need to create my username? None. PBS KIDS does not require you to provide personal information to create a username.
What will PBS KIDS do with my username and login information? We only use your username and password to save and retrieve your points and saved game information. We do not collect any information from you that would allow us or other users to know who you are. We encourage you to create a username that does not include your real name, where you live, or any other information you do not want to share.
Your favorite color or activity and a number, such as blue223 or sledding95, is a good place to start. What do I do if I forget my PBS KIDS username or password? It’s a good idea to write down your username and password in a safe place, just in case you forget. If you forget your username, you’ll need to create a new account and start over. If you forget your password, there is a “Forgot password” link beneath the login area.
Enter your username and answer to the secret question to retrieve your password. Can I delete my PBS KIDS Account?
