Sesame Street Introduces it’s a New Muppet, Julia
For more than 50 years, Sesame Street has been a household staple for many generations. The beloved characters, and timeless storylines have been “Sweeping the clouds away,” for five decades. It’s no surprise our childhood TV icons such as Elmo and Cookie Monster are now our bubbas’ favourites, too. With World Autism Awareness Day coming up in a few weeks on Sunday, 2 April, Sesame Street has introduced a new Muppet on the block, Julia who is autistic. Through its various songs and stories, young viewers will learn acceptance and empathy whilst finding commonalities amongst their peers. We are definitely on board with that!
