Meryl Sheep appeared on Sesame Street as a spoof of the actress Meryl Streep. She was introduced in 1987, following the success of another parody Muppet, Placido Flamingo. Norman Stiles described her as "a sheep, with a middle European accent, somewhat reminiscent of someone we knew in Sophie's Choice, but not exactly." During her stint on the series, Meryl Sheep taught many students at the Meryl Sheep School of Acting, including Susan Sarandon.
Bonora performed the character at Jim Henson's Memorial.
