As previously reported, Sesame Street recently introduced a new character named Julia, which is the PBS children’s series’ first Muppet with autism, on April 10. The team behind the series worked with autism organizations, families and teachers to develop Julia’s character.
Stacey Gordon, the puppeteer who plays Julia, spoke to 60 minutes and said, “As a parent of a child with autism, I wished that it had come out years before when my own child was at the Sesame Street age.”
Sesame Street first premiered in 1969 and has been on the air for 48 seasons on PBS.
