Carl vs. Julia from Sesame Street

Post by MarleyandPal96 on Wed Apr 19, 2017 10:19 am

Who better represents autism on PBS (yes I know SST is an HBO show as well, but still)



Carl refers to his autism as "Aspergers Syndrome"  in his first appearance while Julia shows a different type of autism.

This especially should be discussed with Snowth Pogle, since she worked for a PBS station and also knows the ins and outs of Sesame Street (with Arthur thrown in for the Slumsters).




PS This is for Coyoto_Mao.......

Darn, it was AGES since I've seen Sesame Street. No idea what this "Julia" even looks like... I think including a video for comparison would benefit this thread greatly. Surprised

She probably wasn't even on Russian Sesame Street...

Not sure. To my knowledge it remained largely unchanged. Then again, I haven't really watched it since I was a preschooler. Smile

I actually wrote up a review about this on my blog recently, if anybody's interested in that, I'll share the link.

Right now, my main hope for Julia on SESAME STREET is that she doesn't end up becoming a tool like Carl has on ARTHUR: as we've discussed before, any of Carl's appearances on the show basically draw glaring attention to his disability, and as Moms pointed out, we see how everybody basically walks on eggshells around him.

The response to Julia has been overwhelmingly positive (save for a small vocal minority who are bitching and moaning that having Julia on SESAME STREET will somehow pave the way for LGBT Muppets on the show, and then SESAME STREET will somehow be a "leftist" and "P.C. gone mad" show), so I'm hoping if she's integrated and used in future episodes that the writers will be as kind to her as ARTHUR's writers have been with Marina in giving her character development that goes beyond her disability.
