There’s a new neighbor on Sesame Street – Abby Cadabby’s stepbrother Rudy! He’s a curious three-year-old monster who will help kids explore stories about siblings, blended families, and conflict resolution.

Families come in many forms – including newly-blended families, which can present unique challenges for kids. As part of Sesame Street’s kindness curriculum, kids will watch as Abby and Rudy meet for the first time, get to know each other, and overcome their differences to embrace their new sibling relationship.

With bright orange fur, and a mop of blue curls, Rudy is excited about moving to Sesame Street and meeting his new family. He’s eager to learn all about his new home, but his curiosity occasionally gets him into trouble. (When he borrows Abby’s magic wand without asking, his spells often go wrong, and he needs Abby and friends to come to the rescue.) He loves animals – especially dogs – and playing hide-and-seek with Abby and Elmo.

Find Rudy in the following episodes:
