Recap: Wander Over Yonder S 1 E 4 The Pet

It needs to be housebroken.

The Pet

Wander and Sylvia find a derelict spaceship and go inside to look for any survivors. They are too late, as they have all been eaten by an acid-spewing monster! The two get separated, and while Sylvia tries to find a way to kill the thing, Wander thinks its adorable and tries to tame it!

The Pet features examples of:

  • Big "NO!": By Sylvia when she sees what she thinks is Wander's remains but is a teddy bear cut up by the alien and put in a cocoon.
  • Curse Cut Short: "Let him go, you-"
  • Jump Scare: At the very end of the closing credits.
  • Shout-Out: The whole episode, to the Alien franchise.
    • To Star Wars: "I have a bad feeling about this."
    • To Jaws: "I'm going to need a bigger blaster!" (said three times in fact.)
