That's pretty cool. Normally I don't like it when kids's ws have characters with disabilities because they tend to turn those characters into caricatures, but if anyone is gonna do it gracefully its Sesame Street. Hopefully the younger generation will grow up without many of the misconceptions about autism that ours seems to have.

hard to say how this will turn out. My younger brother has autism so I know what it's like living with someone with it and it's not easy sometimes. There are times I have to remind myself to be more patient than normal because that's just how he is. But there are also times I need to just be hard with him because he'll never learn otherwise.

is he on the hih end or low end of the spectrum? im on the high end and have been to a lot of therapy, though I tend to be a ill informed ass on here in rl im a nice person and am timid, not wanting to offend others lol no one can ever tell I even have ituntil I say something about it

Good for Sesame Street.
Now then, who wants to set up the timer for when the character gets pulled for being "too controversial" or rustling one too many people's jimmies?
Regardless, I wonder how many kids still actually watch sesame street. It's been going on for almost 50 years now.

I only laughed because the Title was funny, and I stand by that........ Good for the Muppets lmao that fucking title. You cant expect me not to laugh at that.

Who would Honestly and truthfully not laugh at reading that for the first time? You just so happen to come across it, especially when you see what a Muppet really is ......

Your humor must be very Dry. Assuming

Replace Muppets in the Title to a real person, and I wouldn't have the slightest Chuckle. Maybe its just me. at least I had a good laugh

He's low end. So it's not as hard to deal with him as it could be and he gets better as he gets older. But he'll still have problems in certain places. Like if he gets stressed out he's prone to just kind of shut down and he won't do anything until he calms down.

Right now though his main issue is probably his lack of maturity considering his age. He's 18 now but in some ways still acts like a child. Even if he can't help it the problem still remains he'll need to learn to grow up and do more things on his own sooner or later.
