Lambert the Sheepish Lion

Lambert the Sheepish Lion is a Disney animated short released in 1951. The 8-minute film focuses on Lambert, a lion that is mistakenly left with a flock of sheep by a stork. Lambert lives his life thinking he is a sheep until he is forced to defend the flock from an attack by a wolf. Lambert the Sheepish Lion was directed by Jack Hannah, and the voice of the narrator and the stork was provided by actor and Disney legend, Sterling Holloway. In 1952, the film was nominated for an Academy Award in the category "Best Short Subject, Cartoons".


  • The original print of the film was given as a gift to Emperor Hirohito of Japan.
  • The stork that delivers lambert and the baby sheep mirrors those of the stork from Dumbo (released 10 years earlier), also voiced by Sterling Holloway.
