Wander Over Yonder cancelled
Well, this is not what I wanted to hear:
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.
