Sesame Street has created a new Muppet named Lily. She will represent the 17-million American children that are poor and hungry. Lily makes her debut this Sunday night in a CBS Prime Time Special about hunger. Seems a little heavy for a kids show topic, what do you think?
Get a peek at Lily after the jump.

Producers spent a lot of time thinking about what would make her empathetic to children, including her style of dress, her voice and even her mannerisms. Her character will have a tendency to look down at her feet instead of making eye contact.

They choose to talk about this subject because it effects so many children. Catch a preview of the show below.
