Bessie Busybody is a main character in LazyTown.


Bessie's name says it all. She needs to know everyone's business and will go to great lengths to get it. She's usually thwarted by rotten timing or bad luck, but it never discourages her. For instance, she might be eavesdropping on gossip and just as she's about to garner a critical piece of information a loud horn might blare, foiling her.

She is motivated by a desire to be respected. She would love to be the queen of LazyTown, if there were such a thing. She's a know-it-all and a wannabe, always on top of the latest fashion or trend to the point of pretension and superficiality. She tries to be a mother figure to the kids, but often it just comes off as patronizing and condescending. Her intentions are sound; she just doesn't possess the skills to be a good parent or role model. She is oblivious to the Mayor's longing for her, but always entertains his advances. After all, he is her


Bessie has fair skin, blue eyes, and bright blue hair. She normally wears red lipstick, a red business suit, a shirt with a floral design, a blue belt, blue high-heeled shoes, and a pearl necklace.


Bessie appears in many episodes of LazyTown. Her debut was in "Welcome to LazyTown" and her final appearance was in the second-to-last episode, "Robbie's Dream Team". Footage of her and the Mayor dancing during the final episode was recorded and they originally had a large role in the episode, but this ended up being cut.
