There’s a new girl on Sesame Street—a 3-year-old with fairy wings and a magic wand. The first new female Muppet in 13 years, Abby is taking her fame in stride.
SO YOU’RE FROM FAIRYSIDE, QUEENS. WHAT MADE YOU MOVE TO THE STREET?
My mommy thought it would be good for me to learn about other little kids and monsters. Plus the schools are really good.
IF YOU COULD USE YOUR MAGIC WAND TO MEET ANYONE, WHOM WOULD YOU PICK?
George Clooney! Because he has a potbellied pig and I’ve always wanted to adopt one. I hope he can come visit us on Sesame Street one day.
DID YOU GET INTO ANY FIGHTS WITH OSCAR YET?
I think Oscar’s really a prince that was turned into a grouch. The next time I see him, I’m going to kiss him and see what happens.
WHY DO YOU THINK ELMO REFERS TO HIMSELF IN THE THIRD PERSON?
Abby doesn’t understand the question.
