New Muppet Karli’s mum battles addiction

Sesame Street tackles issues around addiction in the face of growing US opioid crisis
Karli appears online as part of the Sesame Street in Communities program.

A furry green Muppet with yellow pigtails is the latest attempt to address the impact of the US opioid addiction crisis on those often most affected: the children.

In May, Sesame Street creators introduced Karli, a six-year-old Muppet in foster care and good friend of Elmo.
