Trivia / Wander over Yonder

  • Actor Allusion:
  • Channel Hop: Disney XD gets episode premieres from March 2014 onwards. Disney Channel will get these episodes several weeks later.
  • Creator Cameo: In the end credits of "The Show Stopper", some of the In Memoriam names of the watchdogs who were killed during the episode include crew and cast members, such as Craig, Lauren, Jack, April, Keith, Tom, and Noelle.
  • Development Gag: In "The Void" two of the doors have early sketches of Wander and Sylvia.
  • Executive Meddling:
    • Word of God states that the show was going to have a continuity and more complex stories told in 22-minutes long episodes, but Disney XD wanted a 11-minutes long gag series.
    • Even more so, Craig wanted the third season to have a lot more story lines and more developed backstory, but Disney canned the series because "80 episodes were enough".note 
  • Fan Community Nicknames: Fans of the show call themselves Wanderers.
  • Fan Nickname: Wandere or Wandere Over Yandere, even though he hasn't really exhibited traits of it in terms of "obsessed with someone" but yes in the "plotting" or "going crazy" sense.
  • I Knew It: The stinger for the series finale strongly implies that Lord Hater is a NASA space chimp who was revived and uplifted by dark magic after drifting into the show's galaxy. This was a fairly popular fan theory about his backstory after "The Waste Of Time" had a Freeze-Frame Bonus showing a space chimp that had a facial structure suspiciously similar to Hater's.
  • Official Fan-Submitted Content: Many of the names of the villains on the Galactic Villain Leaderboard, kept track of by story editor Frank Angones on his blog) are original characters created by fans.
  • Schedule Slip: The show has premiered 9 half-hours worth in a little over 7 months.
  • Screwed by the Network: The show didn't get its 3rd season not because of low ratings, but because higher-ups decided that 80 episodes (over 3 years) is enough for one series. What made this baffling is that said higher-ups were willing to wait for Alex Hirsch to see if he would change his mind on doing one more season of Gravity Falls (to which he declined and ended the series after two seasons after 4 years) but wasn't willing to give the same curiosity to Craig despite both shows being top-rated of the network.
    • The channel jump from Disney Channel to Disney XD didn't help matters either. Not everyone has XD, and Wander was barely advertised on Disney Channel once it made the jump; anyone would think Disney has had it out for this show since the beginning
  • Sending Stuff to Save the Show: Almost immediately after the staff announced that the second season would be the last, a "Save Wander over Yonder" fan campaign started gaining ground, and people started emailing Disney for a third season.
  • Short Run in Peru: France got "The Hero/The Birthday Boy" a few days before the US did. Latin America also got a handful of episodes the weekend before their US airings too. More infamously, The Netherlands got "The Liar/The Stray" first.
  • What Could Have Been:
  • Word of God: The crew keep in very close touch with the fandom over tumblr, often dropping hints and trivia regarding episodes of the show.
    • In "The Battle Royale", Mc Cracken said Something the So-and-So's long-winded talk was added because the episode was too short and they needed more time.
