A sheep startles the Goslings in the framing sequence of episode 12.

Sheep are wool-bearing mammals that traditionally gather in flocks, and must be carefully herded.

Sheep, often unnamed, are featured in a few of the stories told by Mother Goose in Mother Goose Stories. Sheep have predominant roles in the stories of "Baa Baa Blacksheep," "Little Bo Peep," "Boy Blue," and "Episode 20: Mary's Little Lamb."

The series featured three distinct sheep puppets in the first season episodes - a lamb with white wool, a blacksheep, and a ram. A new lamb puppet was used for Woolworth (aka Mary's lamb) in the second season.

The Blacksheep puppet, with more traditional Muppet eyes, later appeared during "Scrooge" in The Muppet Christmas Carol.
