Queen of Yurp

The Queen of Yurp is a character who appears in episode "I.R. Gentlemans", where she tasks I.M. Weasel with finding the lost descendant of the Cankerberry royal house, who happens to be I.R. Baboon.

Real-life reference[]

The Queen of Yurp is a thinly-veiled parody of Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom, as the character affects a similar hairstyle and manner of speech (i.e., Received Pronunication, also known as 'the Queen/King's English).

Yurp itself is a pastiche of European monarchies and the episode parodies succesion crises–a phenomenon commonly associated with hereditary monarchies. "Yurp" itself sounds like a shortened reading of the General American pronunciation of "Europe".
