In the 43 years the famed children’s show Sesame Street has been on the air, it has decided to tackle a very sensitive subject that nearly one million children experience every year; divorce. The series has released an online episode in which the character Abby Cadabby reveals her parents are divorced. The move has garnered almost overwhelming positivity.
This is the first attempt the series has made to spotlight divorce. In 1992, the character Mr. Snuffleupagus was to reveal his parents were divorcing. The episode was never aired due to the poor reception it received from a test audience made up of children.
