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 name or title varies according to the topic, i.e. "The Bird Lady," "The Bike Lady," etc. The Lecture Lady also presented some stories as 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 (sometimes gray) hair.
