Trivia / Wander over Yonder

  • Actor Allusion:
  • Channel Hop: Disney XD got episode premieres from March 2014 onwards. Disney Channel got the 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.
  • 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.
    • Many fans also predicted that Wander would fail to redeem Lord Dominator. Sure enough in the series finale that's exactly what happens, though to be fair, it's likely the show was meant to continue that arc in a third season
  • 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) was 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 courtesy to Craig despite both shows being top-rated of the network. Most suspect it was cast aside to make way for the newer toons incoming on the channel at the time (namely the Ducktales reboot and the Big Hero 6 TV series note ) as a cost saving measure.
    • 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.
    • What's more, not long after the show ended. It was pulled from rotation on the network and not rerun at allnote . The commercial bumps (the ones with Hater trying to threaten Wander) still play occasionally, but at the current, that's generally the only remains of the show. The only time it returned to the network was for its Christmas Episode (The Gift 2 and The Gift) in December 2016.
  • 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.
