Sesame Street is one of the longest-running kids' shows in history for a good reason. It's not just entertaining; it's also genuinely important, providing kids from all over --- and especially kids from low-income or disadvantaged families --- with lessons about letters, numbers, and the world around them.
Since the show is produced by the nonprofit Sesame Workshop, with a planned curriculum and heavy research in consultation with educational and teaching experts, Sesame Street is constantly evolving to suit the needs of its audience, so it's no surprise that the show is introducing Julia, an autistic Muppet.

Whether it's the Muppets and Game of Thrones or a line of action figures based on Community that I desperately want, they're all pretty awesome. Check out some highlights below!
