Reviews: Wander Over Yonder

Good Fun

Wander Over Yonder is a very fun series. It's very reminiscent of classic cartoon antics, the plucky hero getting into humorous misadventures but always getting out okay in the end.

The first season runs almost entirely on this formula. Bu cartoons have changed quite a bit since the era Wander Over Yonder takes its cues from. Unlike the olden days, lot of people these days start watching a cartoon expecting an intricate plot driven story filled with emotional character arcs and drama. If you come into Wander Over Yonder with that the only thing on your mind, you might not like season 1. But if you come in expecting a fun cartoon, you will.

Season 2 is where the Myth Arc picks up, if that's the kind of thing your looking for. The cartoony antics still continue, and while getting more serious the show doesn't lose its classic fun and charm.

All of the above is intentional on the part of the show's creator. And it's done very well.

All in all, if you don't come into this show with the Nirvana fallacy that you're going to encounter the most intricate, emotional plot driven cartoon you've ever seen, and instead expect a funny, entertaining cartoon, then you'll enjoy Wander Over Yonder. You'll be pleasantly surprised that a classic, fun cartoon can still stack up in today's age.

If you Wander, Over Yonder... I think you'll like what you see.

I just want to start off by saying that this is my first review here on TV Tropes, and I didn't want to do one of something that has been reviewed many times before like Phineas and Ferb or Pokémon.

Anyway, from the moment I first saw a commercial for this show, I knew I had to check it out. The show stars the orange alien Wander, who is, to quote Lord Hater, 'like the goodiest good guy ever.' If he sounds like a chump, well, sometimes he is. He usually knows what he's doing, but even when it looks like he is in over his head, his best friend and loyal blue steed Sylvia will always be there to help him out in a pinch. Where Wander is a lover, she is a fighter, and she can definitely hold her own against Lord Hater and his army of 'Watchdogs'.

On the flip-side, Lord Hater is the hate to Wander's love. Though he is something of a brat, he is easily just as entertaining as the heroes, and despite his silliness, he is a veritable threat, and you'll enjoy seeing him take on the heroes.

I'm not going to go into detail on the absurdity of the show. When all is said and done, this show has my wholehearted recommendation. Check it out when you get the chance.

Please comment! I want to know what you think about my first review.
