By Michael Howard

Seasme street is debuting a new muppet with a beautiful brown perky fro. The nameless muppet manages to trim away generations of yearning for  long, silky locks with her song. I Love My Hair and has become an  Internet sensation. Now her creator wants to give her a life beyond  YouTube. The video is being shared on Twitter, and posted on gossip sites and blogs. Writers for the popular show want to create an identity for the new muppet star and hope to expand her reach beyond just youtube to help children of color accept their skin and hair opposed to what the media deems as good hair and skin.
