Sesame Street


Season 38 - Abby is a full-time cast member! August 13, 2007.



Abby Cadabby premiered during Season #37 on Sesame Street. Performed by Leslie Carrara-Rudolph, the first new female Muppet in a long time was a welcomed and popular addition to the cast. With her success in just a couple shows, there was a lot more of Abby in season 38! As a matter of fact, Abby was made a giant balloon for the 2007 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade!


For more information, clips of her in action and to see the balloon and more - click on the photo of Abby to go to  Abby's press page - includes interviews on "The View" and her spot as ABC News's "Person of the Week".


Sesame Street has lead the way in children's television since it's birth in 1969. There mission was to better prepare children when they enter the school and that mission continues through today. Sesame Street combines puppets, live actors and animation to help kids not only in areas of education, but also in relationships, sharing and caring for others, emotions and in health and fitness.

Sesame World Wide Kids


Sesame World Wide Kids is another project Leslie is involved with at Sesame Workshop.


World Wide Kids is a group dedicated to helping children develop new skills to effect positive change in their community and participate in the global economy. Their mission is to prepare a new generation of kids to become globally aware, as well as understanding their role in society, to value diversity and exercise compassion.


That's a little deep for the pre-school age group, so the message is taught through the use of a new set of puppets. For more information, click on Leslie's favorite penguin, Koko (left).
