The series follows Wander, a nomadic and optimistic traveller and his best friend, Sylvia, as they go from planet to planet helping people to have fun and live free. This angers Lord Hater, one of the most powerful villains in the galaxy, who tries to defeat Wander with his army of Watchdogs.[1][2][3]

The creator of the show is Craig McCracken, who has also created The Powerpuff Girls and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends.

Development[change | change source]

Wander Over Yonder is McCracken's first show on a Disney-owned network. Wander first appeared on sketchbooks and clothes that McCracken sold at conventions, as well as in a never-finished graphic novel.[4] McCracken has described Wander as a "nomadic, hippie, muppet man".[5]
