My Latest Love - Wander Over Yonder

Life has been chaotically busy at work. The last couple of months have been a blur! Luckily, I saw my reminder fast enough this time so I didn't miss my posting spot. Phew!

Anyway, I'm normally behind the times, so you may already know all about these guys, but I'm gonna share them with you anyway. :)

I'd seen them around but never actually watched the show. I knew the song though. That thing is catchier than heck! (If you've not heard it before - click the video! I dare you! Heh heh)



But one fateful night, too tired after coming home from work to get up when it was time to move elsewhere, I saw the second half of an episode. The Gift 2: The Giftening - and I was HOOKED!

Here's a taste of that most awesome episode...


I was rolling on the floor. The brilliance of it! Terrorize the bad guys by making them happy! The horror! And the final gift at the end of the episode - priceless! (You won't see it in the taster - heh heh)

I'm not a laugh-out-loud person. It's super rare for me. But not when watching this show. It cracks me up! Been going to sleep with the theme bopping around too. lol.

The show is the creation of Craig McCracken. He's been in the field for a long time now and then he came up with this piece of awesomeness in 2013.

Let me introduce you to these lovely people....

Wander
He loves to travel, meet people, see new things, make friends, help anyone and everyone. He plays a mean banjo, too! No idea what race he is. But he is definitely super spunky!



Sylvia
Wander's best friend and fellow traveler. She's tough, smart, athletic. And Wander is her best friend, too.
She has no acting skills, which seems to give no one a hint as she delivers her lines with no emotion and even sarcasm.


Sylvia has as a rapier wit and is stubborn as can be when it comes to Wander. But when he looks at her like this....



She can't say no and goes along with his crazy schemes. Normally to her aching regret. But they still a lot of fun regardless.

The two of them travel from planet to planet in blow bubbles. And they aren't the only ones. Seems to be the preferred method for wanderers/tourists.



They're very handy!


Lord Hater
He is the baddest of the bad and he will prove it by taking over the universe! If he feels like it. He loves being bad. Loves rock music and air guitar and doing evil deeds. Hates Wander with a passion because he tends to spoil his plans. Wander, however, thinks they're best buddies! Oh my!


Peepers
Lord Hater's right hand man. Down to earth, smart, and wants nothing more than to help Lord Hater achieve his aims. The two of them go way, way back.



And this is Lord Hater's ship - I love this thing!!!!


See the tongue? It's the way off the ship. Lol.


She really is a beauty. 

What cracks me up most about the show is the weirdness and the fact it looks stupid, but it's quite profound and smart. It also has a ton of in-jokes from the 70's on up. Too fun! (They even steal the Star Wars poster pose and do it with a Banjo - so cool!)

Wander Over Yonder can be seen on the Disney Channel - so if you get a chance, check it out. Too much fun!

  1. I haven't looked it up to check, but it sounds like the person who voices Wander is the same person who did the voice for Fix-It Felix Junior on Wreck-It Ralph.
