Yertle the Turtle in The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss.

Yertle the Turtle was a recurring character on The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss. As depicted in the original Dr. Seuss story "Yertle the Turtle," Yertle was a tyrannical king. In the second season of the show he had moveable eye lids.

The character retained much of his egotism and lust for power in the series, sans his original royal status, but his inevitable come-uppance and occasional insecurity lent him a sympathetic side. Yertle has an aunt, Myrtle, who is in fact a bona-fide queen. In "Yertle the King," he temporarily gains the crown he's so yearned for.
