The Queen of The Black Puddle

Voiced by Tress MacNeille

The Queen of the Black Puddle is an otherworldly siren temptress who resides within a supernatural black puddle. Her sinister goals are to seduce men gradually until she eventually manages to guide them to her puddle, where she eats them. She appeared in an episode where she successfully managed to charm Eustace and almost succeeded in devouring him, but Courage triumphed over her after a battle with her. At the episode's end, when Courage is bathing, a canine version of the Queen of the Black Puddle appears from the bath water. She later returns as part of the group to get rid of Courage.

Famous quotes containing the words puddle, queen and/or black:

    An oblong puddle inset in the coarse asphalt; like a fancy footprint filled to the brim with quicksilver; like a spatulate hole through which you can see the nether sky. Surrounded, I note, by a diffuse tentacled black dampness where some dull dun dead leaves have stuck. Drowned, I should say, before the puddle had shrunk to its present size.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    Queen Jane was in labor
    Six weeks and some more;
    The women grew wearied,
    And the midwife gave o’er.
    —Unknown. The Death of Queen Jane (l. 1–4)

    A new disease? I know not, new or old,
    But it may well be called poor mortals’ plague:
    For, like a pestilence, it doth infect
    The houses of the brain ...
    Till not a thought, or motion, in the mind,
    Be free from the black poison of suspect.
    Ben Jonson (c. 1572–1637)
