The beloved children's show "Thomas and Friends" is introducing its first character with autism.
Meet Bruno! Mattel describes him as a joyful, pun-making brake car.
The character will be voiced by two different actors who have autism: 10-year-old Chuck Smith in the U.S. and 9-year-old Elliott Garcia in the U.K.
Bruno will make his debut this month on the 26th season of "Thomas and Friends."
According to a 2017 report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 2% of U.S. adults have autism.
