  • Craig McCracken has done it again!

    10
    After a couple years of absence after quitting his job at Cartoon Network, Craig returns with this new original cartoon that's more about the characters than the situation. Wander is a happy, patient, joyful, optimistic, orange dude with a Southern accent (provided by actor Jack McBrayer) who travels the galaxy with his steed and best friend, Sylvia (played by April Winchell). He spreads joy and happiness on every planet he's own, and occasionally saves it from the evil galactic conqueror, Lord Hater (voiced by Keith Ferguson) and his second in command, Commander Peepers (voiced by the always funny Tom Kenny) and his army of Watchdogs. The jokes hit home in every episode, the animation is very colorful and well done, and the characters are very likeable and relatable. The series also provide good morals, such as controlling your temper (The Time Bomb), being helpful (The Nice Guy) and what happens when you keep thinking about the unknown (The Box). I recommend everybody to see it, unless you hate Craig McCracken with a burning passion.moreless
  • Honestly, "Wander Over Yonder" is like one of my top most FAVORITE shows I've ever watched

    10
    This show always make me smile and it always make me feel good about myself. To whoever dislike this show can go to hell! My favorite characters are: Wander, Sylvia, Lord Hater, Commander Peebers, and Emperor Awesome. I swear their episodes made me ROFL (Rolling On the Floor Laughing). I find this show unforgettable, really good and very cool.
  • Wander over to this show. You certainly won't regret it.

    9.5
    In my honest opinion, I think Wander Over Yonder is one of the best things Disney has released in a while. Not quite as good as Gravity Falls, but I still think this an absolutely fantastic show! So, let's wander right into Wander Over Yonder!

    The Story: The main plot of the series revolves around Wander, an optimistic space-traveler and his tough but caring steed, Sylvia, as they travel from planet to planet helping people, all against the evil Lord Hater and his army of Watchdogs. The plot is very simple, and it's one of those shows that doesn't really have a story arc (Not yet, anyway. Heard there's gonna be one in Season 2. ) , and that makes it easy to follow. Plus, the writers are really good at telling humorous, yet well-written stories.

    The Animation: OH. MY. GOSH. The animation in Wander Over Yonder is SMOOTH. As in, the smoothest I've seen in years. Everything just blends together perfectly, and it perfectly compliments the settings, and characters.

    The Songs: And wouldn't you know it, the songs in this show are good too! The theme Song is VERY catchy, and songs like "Take a Step Inside Your Mind" and "If You Wander Over Yonder" still haven't left my head after about a month. Also, the background music (Non-lyrical) is also really good.

    The Characters: I'll say it now. I like every character in Wander Over Yonder. Wander is hilarious, yet also knows when he's done something wrong. Sylvia can be a bit harsh at first, but as you see more of her, she's more like Wander's protector. Lord Hater is a really comical villain, and coming from the voice of Bloo from Foster's Home of Imaginary Friends, I'd expect no less. And Commander Peepers is a serious, yet puny right hand man to Lord Hater, who's probably my second favorite character in this show, next to Wander.

    The Verdict: This show is the most pleasant surprise I've encountered all year. It's charming, its songs are catchy, Its characters are memorable, and In my opinion, It's just an absolute source of joy.



    Final Score: 9.5/10moreless
  • Amazing and funny and a great show to help Disney's reputation.

    10
    This is an amazing show next to gravity falls. Its funny at times and creative to. Some episodes are girly and such and other episodes have a lot of stuff for boys and most episodes are both really. If Disney makes more shows like Gravity Falls and This show Disney might have a chance. Keep up the great work with these shows :D
  • The saving grace of Disney animation.

    Plot: The series follows Wander, an overly-optimistic intergalactic traveler and his steed Sylvia traveling from planet to planet helping people have fun and live free, all against Lord Hater and his army of Watchdogs' evil reign. Lord Hater is the most powerful villain in the universe with Commander Peepers serving as his second in command and leader of the Watchdog Army. My opinions: I like Wander Over Yonder, but it's a really overrated show and a lot of people are comparing this to SpongeBob. Enough of that, Wander may be like YET another SpongeBob ripoff character, but he's kind of different from him. I enjoy it as much as Craig McCracken's two other shows from Cartoon Network. I wish he stayed there since WOY doesn't really belong to Disney at all. Oh well, but at least it's one of the saving grace of Disney animation along with Gravity Falls. Same for Disney Channel even though they're bigger &@$t@rd@ for sending new episodes and reruns to Disney XD. Man, screw you DC, your channel is not even good anyways! It's bad enough that the channel is full of teenage sitcom (bleep). I tolerate the show more than the repetitive Phineas and Ferb and poorly done Fish Hooks. Gravity Falls is still the best Disney animated show.

    STORY: The plots are unique in certain episodes. 9/10

    WRITING: The writing team is amazing. They know how to be creative. 10/10

    HUMOR: The writers are talented at making me laugh. 10/10

    DRAMA: Not very much so I can't comment on that.

    VOICE ACTING: TBH, I'm not a big fan on Wander's voice actor because Jack is kind of annoying and he always act the same in every role. I'll give credit for other VAs that are not Jack McBraver (whatever his last name is spelled) since I've heard of them before. However, there are guest stars from time to time and I'm not that gushy towards them. 8.5/10

    ART: WAY different than Craig McCracken's other shows. Instead of ripping off PPG and FHFIF, this show kind of rips off Fish Hooks (meh) especially with the the lip movements which is weird. I'm not really fan of it, but it's far from being awful. 7/10

    ANIMATION: I love it. In some episodes, it stands out more than a typical episode of PPG and FHIF. 10/10

    LASTING Appeal: It may not last as long as the other two show but I'll give it 3 to 4 seasons.

    CONCLUSION: Disney may suck now with their lame shows and crap but Wander Over Yonder is the saving grace from that. Although I wish it belong on Cartoon Network due to Craig McCracken's involvement.

    SCORE: 9/10moreless
