Sherman is a recurring character in The Backyardigans, a small but shy Worman. Sherman has a brother named Herman. Sherman lives in the heart of the jungle with lots of other Wormans. He enjoys eating popcorn despite the fact that it is almost larger than his mouth opened wide. He is a recurring character in The Backyardigans and appears in four episodes.


Sherman can get scared easily, mainly because many things are larger than him. His fear disappears sometimes when he is happily spending time with his friends. He is very clumsy and seemingly gullible. Though he only speaks gibberish, his friends seem to understand him. He also likes popcorn.


Sherman is mostly a bright yellow color. He has several orange spots. His eyes are white with black pupils. Sherman is shaped like the letter 'S'.


Sherman has appeared in several episodes of The Backyardigans. His first appearance was in The Heart Of The Jungle, from season one. His last was in Attack of the 50 Foot Worman, from season four. He made two additional appearances in Polka Palace Party, from season one, and What's Bugging You?, from season three.
