Mallory Lewis: Continuing Lamb Chop's Legacy on TikTok
In the world of children's entertainment few characters hold as much nostalgia and love as Lamb Chop, the beloved sock puppet brought to life by the late Shari Lewis.
Now, nearly two decades after her mother's passing, Mallory Lewis is ensuring that Lamb Chop's legacy lives on finding a new audience on the popular social media platform, TikTok.
Mallory, the daughter of the esteemed children's entertainer and ventriloquist, didn't plan to follow in her mother's footsteps originally.
Growing up in the entertainment industry, she saw firsthand the hard work needed for success. However, fate had other plans.
After Shari's passing Mallory received numerous requests to revive Lamb Chop.
Despite her initial hesitation, she eventually embraced the sock puppet, driven by the love for the character and the desire to honor her mother's memory.
With her experience as Shari's head writer and producer, Mallory was well-prepared to give new life to the beloved character.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Mallory turned to TikTok to connect with fans, finding that the platform's short-form content was perfect for Lamb Chop's humor and charm.
