Status: Partially Lost

The Charlie Horse Music Pizza was a spin-off of Lamb Chop's Play-Along that premiered on PBS Kids in 1998.

The show tells the story of a seaside pizzeria run by Shari Lewis and her puppet friends Charlie Horse, Lamb Chop and Hush Puppy, alongside some new characters created for this show. The show emphasized music education, and each episode taught a specific lesson about music. The show was cancelled in the fall of 1998 after Shari Lewis died of complications from ovarian cancer.

The show is extremely hard to find on the internet. Of the 23 episodes made of the show, only 14 exist in full, and one exists partially. Other than these episodes, no other episodes exist on the Internet. Wikipedia claims that Sony Wonder released VHS tapes of the show,[1] but no evidence of the tapes can be found online, meaning that this claim could be false. On July 7th, 2018, LMW user peter uploaded ten complete episodes of the show on Archive and Myspleen.[2] The episodes “Star Spangled Charlie” and “One Man Band” (in addition to outtakes featuring Lamb Chop swearing and getting into a fistfight with Hush Puppy, behind the scenes footage of Shari’s last day recording “Goodbye, Hello,” and a Japanese dub of the previously available episode “The Audition”) are available to watch on VHS at Emerson College in Boston, MA in their Dom DeLuise archives; however this is only available for in-person appointments.[3] More detailed descriptions of the first season's episodes from the show's official site have been preserved on the Wayback Machine.[4]
