Yvon of the Yukon was a 26-minute Canadian animated cartoon that was about a French explorer named Yvon Ducharme, who became frozen in an ice block in the Yukon after being knocked overboard off his boat. The show follows the adventures of Yvon as he attempts to adjust to life in the Yukon.

The show takes place in the fictional town of Upyermukluk (a play on "Up your mukluk").
