"This is not the Shari Lewis series from the Nineties despite the misleading packaging -- it is "Shari", a dreary puppet sitcom she produced in Chicago (on a very thin shoestring) from 1975-77. It is a creepy parody of The Mary Tyler Moore Show with Shari as a single mother working at a TV station run by animals. The color is drab and the video quality is horrendous (with serious dropout on several episodes). The woman is a tour-de-force even in these threadbare surroundings, providing voices for all the characters and singing one song per show, but this series will depress older children and bore younger ones to tears (as my own kids will attest). Madacy might have done better to market this one honestly as the curious relic of Seventies camp it is rather than trying to palm it off through deceptive packaging as Miss Lewis's later work."
It's not bad

"If you like 70's kids shows, you could get into this one. It's simply about Shari working at a puppet TV station called "Bearly Broadcasting" owned by you guessed it, a bear. There are various puppet characters who have shows on, or jobs with the TV station. Lambchop makes an appearance in most of the 24 episodes.It's really pretty cool to watch if you give it a chance, unlike the grouch who wrote the bad review. Also, the picture quality is not bad, it's just regular live videotape. There's also a cool plug for the new(1975) Hyatt Regency Chicago at the end of each show.
For fans of Shari in the 90's, if you click the bonus section on disc 5 then click Fun Things for Kids to do, you'll see a pretty cool section of Shari and Lambchop.
Not misleading at all...

"Despite the fact that Amazon has no picture whatsoever, this IS a DVD collection of the Shari Lewis show (1970's). The packaging is not at all misleading, it is not called "The Lamb Chop" collection. I am a fan of Shari and urge each to give this collection a try!"
Love the videos

"Shari is classic. The grandkids loved it and we have the lambchop puppet to use while we watch the DVD."
