Abby Cadabby's drawing of her daddy and their home.

Abby Cadabby's father is divorced from her mother. The divorce was the subject of the 2012 resource video Little Children, Big Challenges: Divorce.

In the video it is revealed that Abby spends part of her time living with her daddy at his house and part of her time living with her mommy at her house. Although Abby's parents are no longer married and live in different houses, Abby learns that they both still love her.

Abby shows Elmo, Rosita and Gordon a drawing of her daddy and their house; and while Abby's father is not directly shown in the video, his green hands are shown in a point-of-view shot tucking Abby into bed while Abby sings a song about her family situation.

In a 2019 online video produced for Sesame Street in Communities, Abby mentions that her dad loves baseball, lamenting his absence when her current family is about to go to a baseball game. Abby's mom consoles her and assures that her dad will continue to be a big part of her life. (YouTube)
