With the 37th season premiere coming up on August 14th, the Sesame Workshop will introduce their first new female character in 13 years.
The new character, Abby Caddaby, will use the catchphrase “that’s so magic.” The muppet is a pink “fairy-in-training” who uses rhyme and magic to express herself. A Sesame Workshop release described her as “a youngster who knows just enough about magic to get herself in a jam but not always enough to get out of trouble.” via TV Week
Celebrity guests for next season include Jamie Foxx, singer John Legend, “Today” show host Matt Lauer, and comedian Amy Sedaris. No word if her brother will join her to scare the children. Sam was heard muttering at the news:
“They better not cut Elmo’s screen time, or there will be h#*^l to pay!”
