Little Bo Peep is a famously ineffective shepherdess who is urged in a nursery rhyme to take a laissez faire attitude toward her lost sheep, and let them come home to her rather than trying to find them.

She has appeared as a character on Sesame Street in several different versions, usually made out of the Large Lavender Live Hand Anything Muppet.
