The Oinker Sisters are a trio of pigs who have appeared on Sesame Street periodically since Season 17. Their name is a riff on the Pointer Sisters (who had previously sang on the Pinball Number Count animated segments).

The sisters are best remembered for their song "A New Way to Walk." The leader, Sooey Oinker, is voiced by Ivy Austin, while the other members have changed over the years. Singers have included Heidi Berg and Cheryl Hardwick. In a 1998 episode, their first names are revealed (despite Sooey being the only name previously mentioned): LaVerne, Louise, and Lutrella.

Between their debut and throughout the 1990's, the characters were seen primarily in punk rock outfits. Beginning in the late 1990's, their regular outfits changed to those similar to The Supremes.

According to Elmo's World: "Families", "The Days of Swine and Roses" is the title of an Oinker Sisters album.
