Finding Comfort in the Muppets as an Autistic Adult

As an autistic adult, I have special interests. One of them is the Muppets, and the other two are the Jim Henson Company productions, and Sesame Street. I love all three of these and they mean so much to me. They have been such a comfort to me through the years.

Anyway, I love the Muppets and Sesame Street a lot. They have given me such a comfort that nobody else could give me. The Muppets and the Sesame Street Muppets are my friends, and I love when they make me laugh. They help me through my meltdowns. They are such a comfort to me, and I wanna thank Jim Henson for creating them so that I can be comforted through my autism journey. I love them a lot, and they love me, too.

My favorite Sesame Street character is Ernie, now that Peter Linz is performing him. I love Ernie so much because he is so funny, so kind and so imaginative. I love the songs that he sings by himself, but mostly I love the song called “Up Goes the Castle”. Every time I hear that song I cry happy tears, because of Ernie’s belief in the power of imagination. I love the fact that Ernie can imagine anything, anything in his own way. And it makes me laugh how his friend Bert is annoyed by him!

I will be getting some more Sesame Street and Muppet products for Christmas this year. I am so excited about getting the Electric Mayhem hoodie sweater for Christmas, as well as the Muppet Christmas heads sweater. I also can’t wait until I get some more Muppet and Sesame Street DVDs and plushes. I’m thinking about having Mr Kiffer get me the Pepe the King Prawn book I want called “It’s Hard Out Here for a Shrimp.”

My favorite Muppet is Walter. I’m in love with him. My love for him is as deep as an ocean. I can relate to him so much as an autistic adult. I feel so much like him, because I feel as though the world wasn’t really meant for me. People treat me like I’m less than or othered, and that’s not right. I’m waiting for my moment to show the world who I am. I know that I’m different, and because of the ableistic bigotry, I find it frustrating. Sometimes I wonder if I’m a Muppet.

I love how the Muppets either talk or sing to you through the screen, as well as the Sesame Street Muppets. I always answer back to them when they talk to me through the screen. I love doing that, and it’s a lot of fun doing that. I love watching Muppet movies and drawing pictures of all of the Muppets, which is fun too. I am thrilled that I get to enjoy everything Muppet-related and Henson Company related and Sesame Street related. I love the Muppets, Sesame Street and Henson Company puppets because they bring so much comfort to me. I watch Sesame Street all day and all night every day except for Fridays. And I watch Fraggle Rock every Fridays, and most of the time I watch the Henson Company productions every day.

I think that I am a Muppet. Maybe an honorary Muppet too. 🙂
