the new sesame street muppet blows.
Abby Cadabby is the new Sesame Street muppet.
She's been on for eight minutes and I want to strangle her, and whoever designed her. For starters: she has flat eyes, rendering her expressionless. She's also got a more annoying voice than Elmo, if that's possible.
I really love Sesame Street and the Muppet Workshop, but this is ridiculous. It's Disney-esque. I'm several yards away from my bedroom, where the TV is on, and all I can hear is *twinkle!* *twinkle!* sound effects.
Supposedly this is Sesame's way of providing a strong female role?
At least Nathan's Sesame-watching days will be coming to an end in a few weeks.
Also, I feel sorry for any kid named Abby, because you know this is what they'll be called from here on out.
