Weaselthorp is one of the houses of Toadblatt's School of Sorcery. According to the Dean, it is full "nincompoops, fakes and weirdos."
- A parody of Slytherin. Its negative reputation also likely mirrors that of Slytherin as well.
- Ironically, although Nigel Planter is a parody of Harry Potter, he's in the most hated (and somewhat antagonistic) house of the school.
- Toadblatt's like for Gunderstank and hatred for Weaselthorp is likely a nod to the feud between Gryffindor and Slytherin.
