Wander Over Yonder cancelled

Well, this is not what I wanted to hear:

(copyright Disney)
I was enjoying this series, even though it was designed for a younger audience. There are a few, *ahem*, mature quirks in the show, but you have to look very closely.

Some of the episodes really pushed the artistic boundaries, such as "The Void" where everything this side of "Yellow Submarine" was possible.

"WOY" creator Craig McCracken has confirmed this. Personally, I think Wander was railroaded the way the original Star Trek was put into lousy time slots by NBC during its original broadcasts. The Mouse picked up a Cartoon Network type show, and didn't know what to do with it.

No toys, no other merchandise, All I can say is "Bah, Humbug".
Speaking of Star Trek, I was hoping we would see Lord Dominator get her comeuppance. Maybe in the way Trelane did in the "Squire of Gothos".

Still, I fell in love with the characters, and the designs, so Wander, Sylvia, and all the villains will still have a place in my heart. 
Except for Hater, he's still a jerk.

Boy I was shocked, I mean yeah i'm glad they're gonna air a few more new episodes till the end of June, but even that can't satisfy my expectation for an awesome third season. I can't see the logic of ending a series where it's constantly improving in stories, characters and even if it is a simple plot. Well obviously i'm disappointed that ,Craig can't at least end his show like Gravity Falls, curse you ,Disney! I've even yet to hear anything on ,Star vs the Forces of Evil's second season. Holy Lord, they better not even touch StarWars Rebels. lol But I hope the best for Craig on this new show he's working on.
