Meet Kami, the HIV-positive Muppet

From CNN

Big Bird and the Cookie Monster have som new friends, but they're a long way from "Sesame Street."

One of America's best-loved children's shows, which began life on a fictional New York street over 40 years ago, is about to land in Nigeria under the title of "Sesame Square" --bringing with it some distinctly West African twists.

The show stars Kami, a girl muppet whi is HIV-positive, has golden hair and a zest for adventure; and Kobi, an energetic, furry, blue muppet whose troublesome escapades help others learn from his mistakes.
