Professor Marie Katherine Wiseman is the museum owner in the TV series Curious George. Her sidekicks are Professor Alvin Einstein and Professor Anthony Pizza.
In Curious George Gets a Medal, Professor Wiseman is a man. He is the director and owner of the science museum and is at first angry about the incident that George caused and tells the guards to lock the naughty monkey right away and send him back to the zoo. But, the Man with the Yellow Hat stops the guard with a letter from the mailman to show them. The letter says that Professor Wiseman wants him to go up in a space ship and then bail out and he forgives George.
George agrees and is given a tiny space suit. At the critical moment, it is uncertain whether George will jump or not, but he does and the experiment is a success. George is carried to Earth by a parachute and is awarded a medal.
