Julia and Cadabby INVENTED "Boing Boing Tag". That seems too simple to invent, because adding hopping up and down to tag is all there was to it.
Anyway, Julia is cute. I have autism like she does.

It is so sad to see the fearful uneducated people are here trolling. This is Sesame Street. If you do not like this stuff you are free to go elsewhere. This is sorely needed to educate the younger generation of understanding and toleration. Grow up people please. This is a serious condition. I have nephews and nieces with Autism. You have no idea how innocent and pure these children are...

Honestly, I love how they've incorporated the character Julia in the books as well as on live television. Like everyone in the past, we all could've wished we grew up seeing her because I, for example, did not know about autism until someone told me about it after I called someone who had autism "weird." How would I know? I was about 5-6 years old at the time. My point is, I'm glad they've added a new character like Julia to the Sesame Street group. All the muppets are doing a fantastic job making her fit right in without second thoughts and accepting her for who she is. Now the new generation of kids can be exposed to autism and understand that autistic people are just the same as any other human being except they think differently and process things in their own way mentally 😊👍🏻

I'm very happy Julia is here ^^ I just wish they'd say she is autistic rather than she has autism.

Coolcat 1911Coolcat 1911 (1 month ago)
I guess the reason why they didn't do that is because "She is autistic" can come off as rude more so than"She has autism".

Asha JonesAsha Jones (1 month ago)
Me too. I feel that autism isn't separate from who I am. It's a part of who I am, so I like identity first language.

Jacob GriffinJacob Griffin (1 month ago)
I am autistic / have autism too and I think "has autism" and "is autistic" are synonymous and interchangable with eachother. To me, it's like saying that someone has autism or is autistic is like mentioning the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics or the Soviet Union.

Anthony StargaryenAnthony Stargaryen (1 month ago)
Sorry, elsa1942, but please speak for yourself instead of for all autistic people/people who have autism. I myself prefer to say that I HAVE autism (or that I have Asperger's Syndrome, to be more precise), not that I AM autistic.

For their sake I just hope people on the internet don't make such a sweet character into a horrible meme using her to make fun of autism yanno? But then again what the heck am i gonna do about it lol. But all of that aside I love what Sesame Street is doing with Julia :)

Shadsilvson11Shadsilvson11 (2 months ago)
If anyone's having a good laugh it'll be the YouTube commentary community (which I regret to say I was once a part of, but never again). They pretty much turned the word "Autism" into a generic insult word for internet trolls to use, and they're way too supportive towards the trolls who pick on people with autism. Just a way to keep the fire fuelled to stir up more drama, because more drama means more material for commentaries.
It was a few years back though, so I can only hope they've changed their hatemongering ways. Oh and if you still find autism nothing more than a joke then go back to your X-Play and Big Bang Theory re-runs, the grown-ups are talking. :P

I really like that their message is about accepting Julia for who she is and interacting with her on her terms instead of the usual "wow, that kid sure is a weirdo" approach to autism you see in most movies and TV shows.

Kayla Shuch BagelnoshKayla Shuch Bagelnosh (1 month ago)
pumpcin I definitely agree about your point of view. Though I have cerebral palsy and not autism, I can still relate to Julia because I have helped kids with autism as a volunteer at an organization that helps kids and teenagers who have special needs that is called the Friendship Circle.

Adamguy2003Adamguy2003 (2 months ago)
Yeah, as someone with disabilities myself who was picked on for them as a teen, I feel there's a special circle of Hell reserved for people who mistreat those with disabilities. Because of that, I too love that Julia is so readily welcomed and accepted by everyone in Sesame Street.

sam pjksam pjk (2 months ago)
Good on Sesame Street to do this and show her as something away from the stereotypical view of autism. Autism is a spectrum and not everyone with autism is the way they're portrayed: withdrawn, strange, and lacks social skills. A lot of them are like Julia: happy, sociable, and energetic.

So? I'm a 32 year old childless woman so I have 'no excuse' to be watching it and I'm watching it. Watch what you want, kiddo. We only get one life as far as we know, no sense in conforming to arbitrary things like "I can't watch this I'm too old!". If your friends try to cuff ya about it just tell them "adults made it". ;)

Nice that they didn't just restrict Julia to the storybooks. It's good to see her live action. I can't really say I'm "glad she's a muppet", cause here in the UK, "muppet" is a slang term for "idiot", so saying she's a muppet, despite the fact she IS one, just sounds awkward... Yeah... But anyway, I'm glad she's a live action character now. :)

Oh, I know that, yeah, but the word muppet has been adopted in the UK to also mean "idiot".

An example would be: "Why did you walk into the lamppost, you muppet!"

It's just one of those things. :)

LeoxRenetLeoxRenet (2 months ago)
Michael D. Kimpton lol well, the reason they're called 'muppets' is because it's a combination of the words marionette and puppet (due to the way they are operated) and Jim Henson thought that 'Marionette+puppet' was best as Muppet #RIPJimHenson :)

Vaccines cause autism, via Nagalase molecules! PYSENCE says there is no connection. Holistic doctors are being killed around the world, for using GcMAF to reverse autism. Nagalase cripples your immune system, by stopping GcMAF production, leaving you susceptible to all kinds of disease. GcMAF is naturally produced via feeding the Endocannabinoid System CBD/THC, as well as injection of the protein GcMAF. That's right, the VIRGIN marijuana plant will reverse or cure many diseases! Take care, peace be with you and your family.
