Alfred Lagarde (2 April 1948 – 1 January 1998) was a Dutch radio personality.

Born in Groningen, Lagarde presented the hard rock radio program Betonuur from 1974 to 1979. Lagarde was a great proponent of hard rock and heavy metal; he also produced the first single of Dutch-language hard rock act Vandale, in 1979.[1]

Lagarde performed the original voice of Telly on Sesamstraat, the Dutch co-production of Sesame Street. After a few brief appearances, Telly became a main character in the late 1980s. His Dutch name is Teevee Monster, or simply Teevee ("tay-vay"). When Lagarde died, Fred Meijer became the new dubbing voice of Telly.[2]
