New York Daily News – “Sesame Street” announced Wednesday that the beloved children’s show will tackle the topic of homelessness with the very first homeless Muppet.
The pink-felted, 7-year-old Lily was first introduced in 2011 to help viewers understand hunger and food insecurity, but a new series of videos will explore how she learns to cope when her family loses their home and she’s forced to stay with friends on Sesame Street.
How angry is Oscar? This is his gig. I’m almost 38 and to me Oscar has always been the homeless muppet on the corner. He lives in a trash can. There is zero chance he lives there willfully. I can’t imagine the trash Elmo is dropping on him on a daily basis. It’s dirty it’s full of twiddle bugs it’s gross. If that’s not homeless what is? I lived in my car during college I didn’t call it a home. Don’t take this from Oscar.
