The Lecture Lady is an animated character who appears regularly on the "Elmo's World" segments of Sesame Street. The character appears on Elmo's TV, supplying a lecture on whatever the day's topic is. Her actual name/title varies according to the topic, i.e. "The Bird Lady," "The Bike Lady," etc. The Lecture Lady also presented some stories too like in Transportation.

In her earliest appearances, the character resembled voice actress Andrea Martin's Edith Prickley character from SCTV. The Lecture Lady was later redesigned, with a rounder, friendlier face and longer hair (Though most often orange, her hair color would occasionally be gray).

Her first physical appearance was in Dancing, and her first appearance in her redesigned form was in Exercise. Her last appearance was in Building Things, from Season 37.
