Julia moves to Sesame Street
Julia, a Muppet on the autism spectrum, has made her debut on Sesame Street.
Elmo, Abby Cadabby and Big Bird learn to play a little differently with their new friend, writes Dylan Matthews on Vox.
When Julia introduces “boing tag,” the other Muppets aren’t upset that she’s breaking the rules of tag — they’re grateful to learn a new game and experience. “She’s not like any friend I’ve ever had before,” Big Bird tells the gang. “Yeah, but none of us are exactly the same,” Elmo responds. “You’re a bird, Elmo’s a monster, and I’m a fairy,” Abby concurs. “We’re all different.”
They end by singing “We Can All Be Friends.”
