Quotes

Narrator: Time changes everything. The little spring lambs were sheep by fall. And Lambert's ma, oh, was she proud of him! Because she had the *biggest* sheep, or - ewe, or lamb, or whatever - isn't he huge?

Courage for Lambert. My favourite Disney short...
7 January 2006 | by (Bath, England) – See all my reviews

I remember watching 'Lambert the Sheepish Lion' on the Disney channel years and years ago. It was my favourite Disney short. In summary, Lambert is a lion cub who is mistakenly given to a sheep. Lambert is ridiculed by the other sheep until there is trouble and he must save the sheep from danger. By doing this, he gains his courage. The theme tune to this little short is very catchy, and it's just a feel-good story with the ironic little twist and the feeling of success that Lambert has become a hero now instead of being bullied. Out of all these years, I have never forgotten this little short, and I can vaguely remember the tune.
