Daughter is obsessed with cartoon characters holding their noses

My 8-year-old daughter, Susan, who has autism and OCS is obsessed with when cartoon characters hold their nose from a bad smell. She then wants to hug the character so badly. I think she was watching Muppet Babies the other day she last did it. What can I do about it???? Please!!!

I am not sure what you are asking, but I would simply get her some stuffed animals of the characters she likes and let her hug them when she needs something to hug while watching her shows.

If your daughter has autism, it will probably be helpful to work with a professional, such as a BCBA, who can help you determine the best ways to approach the issue. That said, it doesn't necessarily sound harmful in any way, and may just pass, especially if you don't call attention to it all the time.
