Lamb Chop's Play-Along is a children's television series that was shown on PBS in the United States and on YTV in Canada from 1992 to 1993  It was created and hosted by puppeteer Shari Lewis, and featured her puppet character Lamb Chop. Appropriately, Lamb Chop was a sheep; other characters were puppets of other farm animals, including Charlie Horse and Hush Puppy.

Tropes used in Lamb Chop's Play Along include:
  • Edutainment Show
  • Every Episode Ending: "This is the song that doesn't end...yes it goes on and on my friend. Some people started singing it not knowing what it was, and they'll continue singing it forever just because" (repeat!) Shari: Oh no!, That's enough guys!, How will I turn you off?!, Okay okay I get the joke, I can't believe you guys! Oh ho ho! Okay I've had it That's It! That's It! What are you doing?! What?! What is this?! Hey! No no this is no no! This is the last time, right? This is it! This is it! This is it! Okay, if you guys are gonna keep this up, I want you to go far far away. Go! Go! Go! No! no! no! Keep on going! Charle Horse: This is the song that-- Shari: Charlie Horse?! No! no! Stop! Stop! Stop! Charlie Stop! I want you to go away. Go Away. And don't SLAM THE-- door.
  • Friendly Tickle Torture: One song on Lamb Chop's Play-Along is about how, while you can't tickle yourself (which is true), it is very possible for others to tickle you, as is demonstrated.
  • Knock-Knock Joke: Regularly featured as a segment, and honored with a song to boot.

 Give me a Knock Knock Joke

Don't knock a Knock Knock Joke

They're always dumb

So tell me how come

After one I laugh and bubble up

After four I always double up?

Don't be an old slowpoke

Give me a Knock Knock Joke

Please!

  • knock knock jokes ensue*

That was a Knock Knock Joke

I love a Knock Knock Joke!

They can be awful, it's true

Still I'm telling you

I love a Knock Knock Joke

Yeah!

 This is the song that doesn't end,

yes it goes on and on, my friend.

Some people started singing it, not knowing what it was,

and they'll continue singing it forever just because...

yes it goes on and on, my friend.

  • Made Myself Sad: Hush Puppy.
  • Playground Song: "This Is The Song That Doesn't End".
  • Punny Name / Theme Naming: Food, in this case. Lamb Chop is, of course, named after lamb chops, and Hush Puppy is named after a cornmeal-and-catfish snack made to keep dogs happy and quiet. However, Charlie Horse is the odd man out--a "charley horse" is a slang term for a pulled muscle.
  • Shaggy Dog Story: During the song "It's Not Fair!", Shari buys a bag of jellybeans for Lamb Chop and Charlie Horse, divides the jellybeans so the two of them get the exact same number, then (at Lamb Chop's request) makes sure they also have the same number of red jellybeans. Near the end of the song, Lamb Chop and Charlie admit to Shari that they don't even like eating jellybeans.
  • What Do You Mean Its Phlebotinum: In one episode, the alien Zarc needs "zappelmeis"* to fuel his rocketship and get back home to Yzarc. As it turns out, "zappelmeis" is apple juice.
