But there's sad news to tell you. Shari Lewis got sick earlier this year and died last week.

Shari first went on TV in the 1950s and soon got a show of her own.

In the last few years, Shari and the gang were on Lamb Chop's Play Along and their newest show, The Charlie Horse Music Pizza.

Shari's daughter says we will get to see more of Lamb Chop and her puppet friends. But the world is sure going to miss Shari.
