Sharon, Lois & Bram "Skinnamarink"

Sharon, Lois & Bram is the name of a Canadian children's musical trio composed of Sharon (Trostin) Hampson (born March 31, 1943 in Toronto, Ontario), Lois Ada (Goldberg) Lilienstein (born July 10, 1936 in Chicago, Illinois), and Bramwell "Bram" Morrison (born December 18, 1940 in Toronto, Ontario).

During the 1980s, the trio starred in The Elephant Show on CBC. The series was later aired in reruns on the U.S. cable network Nickelodeon, through 1994. Each thirty-minute installment featured episode-length storylines, in addition to songs and sketches, featuring the trio alongside a human-sized elephant puppet and children's entertainer, Eric Nagler. Special guests, which included Fred Penner, Ann Mortifee, Louis Del Grande, Jayne Eastwood, Andrea Martin, The Nylons, Murray McLauchlan, Jan Rubes, Sneezy Waters, The Shuffle Demons, Kate and Anna McGarrigle, and many more, also appeared on each 30 minute episode.

A second series, titled Skinnamarink TV, featured a different format and two new puppet characters. The series ran for 52 episodes on the CBC in Canada and The Learning Channel in the USA from 1997 to 2000
