Arthur also did an autism episode. The kids name is Carl.I guess Sesame Street decided to do an autism episode too.

Vaccines cause autism. If you don't take the time to research vaccine ingredients and learn there are carcinogens, heavy metals and aborted fetal cells in there you're a horrible parent and will make your child suffer because of your gross negligence

Julia the muppet should have a vaccine needle sticking out of her arm so people can learn the TRUTH.

David Masci oh and i suppose vaccinations don't cause cancer either!

vaccines don't cause autism, that was a rumor spread around at the time when vaccines were made. nothing can "cause" autism. people are either directy born with or without autism, they can't develop or catch it.

Isnt it funny how on the trending vid, comments are "disabled"

Oskar Merrutt (julia) is a puppet made of cloth and glue. Lets not go full retard and pretend any comment is gonna hurt a puppet. Have you been tested for the spectrum.

Well, after I watch all these new sesame street episodes with Julia, I'm expecting every Julia I meet to clap there hands, screech, and tell me how awesome their parents are. Thanks sesame street. By the way, if you throw Julia in a room full of bouncing balls I expect her and elmo to accidently kiss. Perfect... -.-

TheArchitectOfDreams my name is Julia lmao

1 and 68 children are diagnosed with autism in 2017. Shows the progression of America. I don't remember anyone being autistic growing up. This is a fact that scares me. I'm anti vaccinations 100% because of this.

EXACTLY.. pc culture wants to include everyone... but they exclude so many. #FUCKPCCULTURE

If it's any consolation, I think I remember an Arthur episode where Asbergers was the focus. I didn't know it was a thing before that.

Yeah same, I wish that would've been on Sesame Street when I was a kid.
